For this log I’m going to go over the process of taking the 2016 resculpt of the the Behemoth:
and make Khador’s grisly equivalent of the Malcontents’ Stormclad aptly named “Headhunter”.

This guy HATES warbeasts and lets everyone know.
The original intent of this project was make the new Behemoth not look puny next to the Supremoth.
This was not the case.
So we went for some character instead.
Now on with the bodge!
Next up was adding some spacers(each one about 1/8″) to give them a wider stance:
So at this point the body was done and ultimately was only a little bigger. So I tried to make the head unique, starting with a berserker head:
and adding the anvil(and patching up the body more with putty:
So there was a few ways to go about this:
1. This is actually a heavily armoured Dire Troll (or something similar)
2. This is an augmented/cyborg warbeast similar to what the Farrow have done.
3. This Warjack chooses to wear pieces of warbeasts it destroys as prizes to strike fear in it’s foes (or it jus likes to accessorize, whichever)
Number 3 was must easier to believe since we have a canon instance of it happening already.
That and I also had bits appropriate for the idea 😀
And the tusks of a Titan
Roped up the heads to the smokestacks and added some Pikeman capes to keep make it similar to most of my other character jacks.
Then it was time for painting…soooo many rivets.
Here is more pictures of the final result:
