Now, as of this moment there is only one weapon for the warlord, and that's a travesty that I felt needed to be rectified. But not just any fist, because that would be boring, but a Saturnyne Lascutter. You don't see one of them everyday. Infact what does one even look like? Well I was thinking something like this.
I'm going to have to sculpt certain parts and hand build the majority from plasticard but it will be worth it. The cutter itself will be inset into the fist itself, much like an iron man style gauntlet.
So from my sketches there are certain parts that I can grab straight from FW kits with minimum fuss
The majority of the claws and main armament, that sits in the palm, are from a dreadclaw drop-pod.
The eagle will have to be completely sculpted. I managed to find a rough wing sculpture on the cheap from ebay that I could press mould, then I sculpted in the feathers and details with dental tools. You can see the level of detail from the press mould at the bottom of the wing in the first picture.
I think I can use the main chunk of the Belecosa Volcano cannon as a large part of the biceps structure.
And the vents to sit above the fist as its power core.
The rest of the fist will have to be plasticard and greenstuff. Which is terrifying.
Happy painting all!
