Emperor's Children Warpsmith

Death to the False Emperor!.... I mean erm..., more chaos stuff incoming.

This is my converted Warpsmith. I built the model recently from a spare Plague Marine model that I got on eBay a little while ago. It took me a while to get around to building him, but I'm really glad that I did. I really like the paint job too, which I think has helped to make sense of the model as it is encrusted with so much detail that in bare plastic his chest just looked like one massive lump or something.

His head is from the heresy white scars upgrade bits (which I bought just because they're cool). I was lucky in that I had a spare axe head from the tech priest dominus in my bits box after I built my 40k Skaven conversion, and it just seemed like thee perfect part to use.

With 8th edition, lists favour having 2 HQ choices, so I know I'll get a lot of use out of him. That and his stats, equipment, and the ability to fix vehicles are pretty good; especially considering his fairly reasonable points cost.

Overall, I'm really happy with how the model came out. I'm almost surprised myself that he used to be a plague marine!


  1. Yeah, great scheme and doesn't give the vibe of a DG marine so great job there.

  2. Very solid conversion. I knew the model looked familiar, but I could not place what it was until I read it was a plague marine.

    Nice paintjob, too. I like the green cloak against the purple armor.

  3. Very nice work. The conversion really works and the paint job is great.

  4. You've really been doing very impressive transformational work on those DG Marines. I wish Warpsmiths could get some sort of speed upgrade (Bike, Jump Pack, or even just some sort of mobility boost from their Mechatendrils), but they're a really good package once they're where they need to be.
