    • That’s all the approval I need. I’ll email you shortly about it.

        Yes man. I think you should be very proud, this is one hell of a model. And for sure the best Kharn I’ve ever seen. I’m debating internally how to paint it know… should I use a realistic approach? Or a NMM kind of painting with classical deep saturated colours? Oh, modern life problems… 😀

    I would love to see a tutorial on how you did those chains, and the skull on the chainaxe.

    Awesome model, would definitely love to field it with my WE army.

  • The Questions we all wanna know mate. How much is he and can he be mass produced!?!?!?

    • Unfortunately he’s not for sale. This sculpt was a trade off for a paintjob by Volomir on another truescale miniature I will be auctioning for charity.

      Even if I wanted to I couldn’t mass produce this as GW would be beating my door down in no time, with every right too I might add.

      Not sure when but you’ll be able to see the painting of Kharn on Volomir’s blog, which frankly you should have your eye on anyway 🙂

    I think the model is the best i have ever seen for kharn. I think his axe is massive though. Hell, who am i to say anything. ITS FU**ING AWESOME!!!!

    • Thanks.

      I agree the axe is a little on the huge side, but by the time I realised it was beyond the point of taking apart and re-making.

      Still my favourite conversion to date.

      I’ll try and get on that Chain Tutorial I promised in a day or two.

  • This is astonishing. I’d love to know how you did the rivets on the axe and the back of his backpack, though.

    • Thanks, glad you like it.

      The plastic rivets on the axe and backpack are actually an easy one to answer. They are Grandt Line rivets, from a model railway product line I believe.

      I’ve bought mine from, though I imagine a quick google search will reveal plenty of other retailers.

      If I remember correctly these are the smallest of the round rivet head (number 153).

      • Thanks so much for the info. You have no idea how much time you just saved me on my Heresy conversion project.

        • You might also want to check out, more expensive but comes in even smaller sizes.

          • Wow! Fantastic model, and fantastic tips. Thanks so much for sharing. You should be proud of this guy!
