I have realized I had not shown the mini we used in last week's AAR to represent Khornelius. Well, where do I begin with. It is a conversion from the bad guy in an oooold board game called Dark World; you may remember it from early nineties, one of those games which turned out to the public after HeroQuest tremendous success.
I kept the mini and I believe I was giving it an use as a fantasy Sorcerer. But I was playing no fantasy games at the moment, I was only into 40K (not that I was playing, but still painting and collecting; I believe many of us have gone through that phase).

I decided I could do something different with that. What if I turned it into a 40K Chaos Sorcerer? Hmmm...
|Green Stuff to make him look like a Space Marine|
|Rough WIP, but you can see the psychic hood|
|More GS to cover the reptiloid tail|
|Then paint it! Ta-daa|
Of course this is a quite naive sculpting work, it was one of my first attempts on heavy conversions. All the edges should be sharpened and many, many things should be redone.
|But it is not that bad at tabletop distance|
So this is another oldschool axiom: never throw away anything, sooner or later you will find a use for it!
