Something from Raging Heroes

Here is a pretty fascinating figure form Raging Heroes.  This is called Kahn-Urkan, and it is the "Heroic" scale.  The base on which he's standing is 50mm.

So, he's got some very hefty wings!

As with all Raging Heroes figures, he comes with many options.  There is another head, another shoulder armor set, and 4 different weapons!  Not only does this give you some great choices to make it exactly what you would like, you end up with lots of fantastic conversion bits.

I know I will be using one of the extra blades for my Dark Eldar!

What has amazed me about some of these winged figures from Raging Heroes is how well they fit.  It's unreal.  The next miniature I will be featuring had 4 wings that fit so snugly that I had all 4 of them attached with no glue or pins!

That speaks to the quality of the casting.  As usual, not lots of nasty flash.

I am using this snow base so that I can make him into a frost demon.  Should be fun!!!!

These guys are beasts!

At first, I didn't think these guys were too nasty in a game.  I was wrong.

With 4 hull points, walker traits (and armor to go with that) and high strength attacks, these suckers are brutal.

I think they are also demons, so they get those saves, and a chance to repair themselves.  As if they needed it!

Just one of these inflicted some major damage to the Dark Eldar in that practice tournament game that we did a while back.

This was the set of options that was used, not the plasma version.  I am sure that one is also very nasty.

This guy was done in an Iron Warriors type of scheme.  It was also the vehicle where I discovered the new use for the Vallejo transparent red.

Some of you may recall the blog post that describes the way I magnetized the weapons and the heads.

There are also some blog posts that show how the base was made .  If you have not seen those, be sure to check them out!!!

Ground level

One more post on the Storm Eagle!  This time from ground level.

The eagle head freehand is definitely my favorite of all the Imperial Fist iconography that I developed for this army project.

The lighter color of the Imperial Fists definitely facilitated the weathering very well.  It has been very cool to work out all sorts of techniques for the weathering!

I love what the streaks and stains do to the logos and icons.  For lack of a better term, it makes them look less 'painted on'...

I did a little change to the fortress icon as well for this vehicle.  That is a terrain piece that I will be making.

It will be a four sided piece, with a modular wall and modular towers for each corner.  Of course, there will be the central tower as well. :-)  Bastion, anyone?

These next few views show the additional nose mounted weapons...

And the missile launcher...

I have some posts coming up that will feature a few amazing miniatures from Raging Heroes, along with some photos of dozens of figures that I have been prepping for the painting videos.  Even more are on their way right now!
