Most people however seem to have very mixed reactions to his
depiction by Adrian Smith.
(I stole this version of the picture from a much better blog The Eternal Hunt)
People with fancy pants art degrees say rude things and use fancy words like perspective, anatomy and some other stuff I don't understand.
Most people say "What an awesome picture. That guy is rad and clearly the most badass guy ever, I need to find out all about him (If that's what you said and you like to read check out Betrayer if you're more of a listener check out Butcher's Nails or Chosen of Khorne).
I love this picture and have tried to replicate it as a conversion no less than three times unsuccessfully. So many little parts of broken dreams in a box of unfinished hopes.
Then something changed! Eleven months ago GW released the Skullgrinder and I thought "Khaaaaarne!" I knew I'd finally be able to create the Kharne of my dreams.
So after eleven months of working on him on again and off again I finished my homage to Jes Goodwin and Adrian Smith, enjoy!
Parts used: skullgrinder legs and right arm. Kharne head, backpack, left arm, shoulder pad and wwf belt. CSM torso, back and plasma pistol. Skullcrusher chains and skulls. Grey/red stuff is apoxie sculpt from Aves Studio.
The putty work is a bit rough and not as consistent in thickness/width as I'd like but for my first attempt at this type of trim/arrows I m pretty happy.
