RoC warband: Psyker lvl 2

Alright, I'm at the end of my warband creation now. If you haven't been following along and you're interested to see how the rest of the gang was created then you can check them out here, here, here and here.

Here is the last addition to my Renegade warband:

Name: Gary
Psyker lvl 2, Psi pts 27, 3 x lvl 1 spells, 2 x lvl 2 spells.
Personal attribute: Transparent skin. Fear pts 3
Equipment: Mesh armour, boltgun, las pistol, stumm grenades, bionic eye with targeter, bio & energy scanner.

I based this guy off of an unreleased RT mini, Captain Repentance. He's now available from Foundry Miniatures, which is where I procured him from last time I was at BOYL. I thought he looked a bit like a psyker because of his cape and other stylish clothing. The only thing that didn't fit the psyker persona for me was the helmet.



So I lopped it off and replaced it with a goblin head from Reaper Miniatures because I felt like it. Actually, I used that head for a couple of reasons. The first being that I wanted to use an abnormally proportioned head, and secondly, I had nothing else at hand. Also, I think it looks pretty funky. 

I'd ran out of Boltguns so I made one one out of bits. Looks a bit different than the standard one, but still recognisable so I'm pretty happy with it. For the bionic eye with a targeter, bio & energy scanner I decided to combine them into one unit, mounted/grafted onto the side of his head. This was cut from a SM helmet. Then after a bit of putty work he was ready for paint.






And here is the colour scheme I chose for him:






Because he has flayed skin I tried to replicate exposed muscle tissue on his cranium, google images to the rescue there. I overpainted a Khorne transfer onto his shoulder,a  bit sloppily, but looks fine at a distance. After he was gloss varnished and sprayed with a matte coat I went back and applied some gloss to his head. Hopefully giving him a wet membrane look.

So that's the end of my Chaos Renegade warband creation. Now all I need to do to get these guys prepped is to write up their stats onto a cheat sheet and they'll be ready to rock.

Hope this series of posts has been worth it for you guys. I've had fun making them and I'm proud to have them in my collection.


Bye bye :)

  1. Nice work as always Mr P. I like the boltgun in particular. It looks very "official".

    1. I only had a few pieces left in my bits box to make it with. Turned out a lot better than I expected.

      Glad you like him Toby, cheers :)

  2. I think this guy is my favourite from the entire warband. It's something about his silly yet creepy face, combined with the flamboyant outfit and wargear. He's perfect!

    1. I'm really pleased with how he looks too Jon. The flayed skin was something I'd never tried before, but I think it turned out well.

      I'm glad you like him :)
