Raider Conversion Archon in Style

As always, check out my main blog and podcast Skared Podcast HERE.

Hello all!

So, its been a week since I released the podcast. And the site seems to be handling traffic more often now, this means more regular content! This time I wanted to share a WIP project that I have been working on over the last couple of days. I had a ravager sitting in a box, unbuilt and ready to go, but i wanted to do something different. Now, I wanted to convert a centerpiece for my Dark Eldar force and what better than a raider for my HQ to ride on in style?

The inspiration for this design was the <a href="http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Warhammer-40000/Dark_Eldar/DARK-ELDAR-TANTALUS.html">Dark Eldar Tantalus</a> from forgeworld.

The biggest obstacle for me was starting to cut up the model! I wanted to be able to do it and not mess it up horribly. Anyhow, here is the a progression of pictures, the first cuts and design:

Then the general shape: <a href="http://s142.photobucket.com/albums/r94/MarshalAugustine/?action=view&amp;current=IMG-20120428-00304.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r94/MarshalAugustine/IMG-20120428-00304.jpg" border="0" alt="Uploaded by Photobucket Mobile for BlackBerry" /></a>

And the overall concept: <a href="http://s142.photobucket.com/albums/r94/MarshalAugustine/?action=view&amp;current=IMG-20120429-00307.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r94/MarshalAugustine/IMG-20120429-00307.jpg" border="0" alt="Uploaded by Photobucket Mobile for BlackBerry" /></a>

Anyhow, thanks for reading. I shall continue to work on this as it gets done. Need to do a lot of greenstuff work on it as well as eventually paint it. But one thing is for sure, my Archon will be riding in style.
