  1. You know what, I'm glad the sega people didn't had to design those big guys based on existing models. The unit from the game is miles ahead whatever current GW puts out and old stuff while charming is dated for a 3d game proposes.
    About the conversion itself, great build but the chaos forgewhatever is already too iconic existing since 6th edition, people will look at this model and think you use it for CSM. Thats is the problem with using space marine stuff for conversion, it always look like space marine stuff, chaos or not.

  2. I'm gonna have to say this : they lack they arrow shaped weapon on each hand. It makes selling this as a Dwarf Destroyer harder…

  3. Maybe some conversions of current dwarf kits to make them more chorf-y!

  4. I like the more open head and the molten bull head, it makes the bull aspect more present

  5. looks great but you are right
    the head doesn't look that great
    I would have tried to remove the nose and the eyes so that the plate is straight on the upper end of the mouth

  6. I love it! Would you take up the challenge of making the whole CDwarf rooster though πŸ˜›

  7. How did you dilute the streaking grime? I'm scared of using those kind of products with my airbrush D:, Amazing video as always, you are the best!

  8. What is your hobby knife brand? It goes through these models so much nicer than mine.

  9. This guy is awesome! I'd love to see your take on some foot soldiers for chaos dwarves since GW does not have many in their range right now being limited to just one miniature in the spire tyrants.

  10. Normally I love your work Pete but this video just feels lazy/rushed. You didn't even bother painting the eyes, teeth, wires. The glow effect is awful. The ball bearings in the arm joints were uninspired and I know you could have done better.

  11. Would you be willing to kitbash some Sanguinary Guard to go alongside the New Dante model?

  12. I really liked the glowing effect, not sure if it would have been an improvement to take the highlight darkening up to red or even a drybrush of black, or go the other direction and cover the white with a florescent yellow, but I thought that the contrast between the magma skin and the armor paint job you did was incredibly punchy.

  13. It looks so cool! The temptation of trying to recreate it for a chaos army is so big, it looks so cohesive as if it was meant to be. It’s an absolute beast!

  14. Absolutely Stunning! Fantastic work Sir!! Thank You for sharing with Us here on the tube! Looking forward to the next video! Later

  15. Have seen similar conversions of the maulerfiend done, it's a solid base and you've done a nice job. I would love to see some black added at the highest points of the magma/flesh though, like a cooled rock crust. To my taste the flesh is a little too bright.

  16. I actually really like the glowing flesh effect. Think I'll do that for all the daemon engines for my Iron Warriors army. I have a Mauler/Forgefiend kit that I'm planning to magnetize so that I can use both. The glowing effect makes me picture a freshly made daemon engine that just rushes out of the Forge and into the battlefield.
