Stormfiend Melee Team
It is accomplished! The remaining Stormfiends and parts for the melee gauntlet conversions are finished. With all the models finally painted, the six 'Fiends can be fielded as a unit of five, geared for tunneling and melee; a unit of four, armed with rattling cannons; or two units of three, one with ranged weapons and the other with melee weapons.
The new models are equipped with warp-laced armor and the gauntlets are magnetized so I can swap out the doom-flayer gauntlets and replace them with shock gauntlets. My initial impression was that the doom-flayers are the better option, but I'll have to try them out in an actual game. (Assuming I ever get to play Warhammer again.)
You may recognize these models as the rattling cannon pose. I had converted them with extra armor bits to represent the warpstone-laced armor and custom doom-flayer gauntlets.
The parts are magnetized so I can swap back and forth between the two options.
It's been a long road to get these guys finished. To see the entire saga of converting the Stormfiends, either click the 'Stormfiends' label in the sidebar, or you can jump to a specific post using the links below.
