A tale of 2 Kharn's (2nd attempt at a Kharn conversion)

The original Kharn model was a mini that helped solidify my love of the World Eaters. Though I have always liked the model I often felt like it lacked a certain sense of movement and as new plastic models started getting released for chaos his proportions started to seem 'off.' I had toyed around with a few different ideas, including a WIP that I posted not too long ago. Then Forge World released Kharn the Bloody, the 30k version of my 40k favorite. It had all the size and movement I could want. So I decided to fuse the two and add a few other bits for good measure. Luckily, despite all the naysaying, the 40k version was released in Finecast. So much easier to cut up. Anyway, here is my WIP so far;

  1. Looks brilliant! I love you you manage to get so much movement and character out of your kit bashes. It really is a joy to see what you'll 'cobble up' next!

  3. Thanks guys!

    I am trying to figure out how to base this guy. I am likely going to do a display base, kind of like Forgeworld does for all their characters. Just not sure how...

  4. I am always supremely happy to see an update over here, and this one certainly doesn't disappoint -- your Kharn looks amazing, the perfect blend of both "official" versions!

    I also hate you very much right now, because I am currently working on something slightly similar, and seeing your perfect conversion made me realise I'll have to step up my game on my own model ;)

    1. Thanks!

      No reason to hate Eternal Hunt! Your conversions are pretty top notch. They always look like you have a deep bits box. Let me know if you want to know my bits! Always happy to share!

    2. also, glue those tassels on last, they really get in the way of glueing and holding the model together. I got an epic headache trying not to break them off. I failed several times.
