A friend asked me to do some conversions to make some Space Marine TM Drop Pods TM he had laying around into Chaos Drop Pods, aka Dread Claws TM.   Naturally I was flattered.

 

I have three distinct ideas but any and all feedback is very welcome.

 

Drop Pod plus a couple of these kits(lucky Prime Day find!):

The tricky bit is that I have 4 of quite a few parts and the drop pod has a 5 fold symmetry!

 

 

 

 

Drop Pod plus this guy (who surely comes from a long lost GW chaos mold):

Tricky bit is that I could probably use some cheap plastic sea creatures for some more texture but haven't found the right ones at the right price.

 

 

 

Finally something with this:

and these

To make something Halloween Horror themed.

I do like the idea of the landing gear being an actual giant hand.

 

Ideally I'd do another where the hand has come down as a fist and made a nice crater.  And it's more than landing gear the chaos drop pods move around after they land.

I'd mash the drop pod and the first option together.

 

ETA---I know we're talking about science fiction/fantasy, but I would think that the heat of atmospheric entry would incinerate any fleshy bits on the outside.

Well, I've progressed to the point where my friend will curse my name every time he has to transport this thing.  I guess I'm ready to sculpt for GW.

      Since i didn't have my paints with me while on break, i was hungry to get back to it.  I guess i wasn't as full of turkey and stuffing as i thought. 
       

       
      As I'm posting this, i saw on his left leg that he's got an unpainted seal.  Dang it! 
       
      I made the bands on the blade smaller. 
      Added more metal details. 
      Added more accent color. 
      Tested two new paint color (silver grey, red. And German Grey). Each did great. 
       
      His backpack gave me some trouble.  I was gluing it on, but the post didn't push in and then it broke off.  Ended up doing some surgery back the but it's on.

      Hi Gang,
      Been a while... this project took some time. The shoulder and knee pads were a lot of "cut and paste" (read kitbash). This isn't strictly the "Emperor's" lore, but I'm just a painter so I do whatever I like. I've also been a bit obsessed with fluorescent paint lately, and the plasma gun got the full treatment.
       

       
      In the end I didn't try pushing this project further as I was just running out of gas. Perhaps I could have left it on the "shelf of aging" for a while and come back to it, but in the end they made a sweet squad that I'm pleased with. See the sides, back and all that. Here.
       
      Thanks for checking it out,
      HMP

      As I mentioned in the thread on the Captain with Terminator Honours, here is the best painted Dreadnaught I have done, the trident symbol on the  front is the chapter insignia. Let me know what you think!

      I thought it would be cool to show off an older model I painted, this one is a vintage Space Marine Captain, painted in the colours of my own Chapter, the Sons of Poseidon.
       
      Comments and criticisms always wanted, let me know what you think! The model was painted using Army painter paints.

      Here's a pair of robots I built to use for this is not a test. They are a mix of privateer press cyriss bodies, assorted gw, Mantic, reaper, and historical bits, and some wire. Was trying to play up the corrosion and damage in the paint.
