A new Flesh Reaper!
This is my first Chaos Marine. I've begun converting him into a Flesh Reaper (Raptor). His feet are rotting away. The left (his left) foot is, ideally, going to end up as an intestine tube looking thing, most likely spewing the same filth the first one had coming from the vents on his pack. The idea is to try to mix up how they're suspended in mid air. I'm also liking the rotting horns, especially the one that's rotting close to the head and almost falling off.
The guts are what he was really a test of, and they came out perfect. I cut into the hollow middle where the body halves met and stuck some rolls of "organ" shaped green stuff in there. Then I drilled some matching holes on the top and bottom, and stuck some green stuffed wire in there. I think for the next one, instead of hollowing it out, I'm just going to cut straight across like he's rotted straight through, his body only held together by some remaining tendrils of flesh, bone, and/or muscle.
Further plans for this one: Bore out some holes going up the leg to sort of show that the leg is rotting all the way up in the armor. Some general texture-ing to make it a bit less smooth and more Nurgley. Still not 100% on what I'm doing with the arms or the backpack. He is going to have a bolt pistol and a hand scythe (think Kama, Wikipedia: Kama (weapon)). I'm also not looking forward to making anymore wings...But I shall carry on!
Coming up next: the first Flesh Reaper....PAINTED! *Gasp!*
