I decided to try to run a deathstar in my CSM/Daemons army which is composed of Abaddon and Typhus in either a squad of 30 zombies or with 3 obilts (depends on the matchup). As I didn't like the idea of shelling out 25$ for what is currently an awful mold, I turned to the bit box. With some limited lord bits (only front torso, one shoulder pad, left claw, axe, and spike racks), a csm head, a ork nob should pad, and a black reach terminator I went at it and craft this baddddd dude. I really like how he looks. I decided to also for the first time try a non-metallic metallic paint job on the axe blade.

Just got to finishing up this GUO today. He didnt take as long as I expected, though I did leverage the airbrush to do most everything outside some of the detailing and armor. Im happy with how he turned out, though mid way thru I really felt something was missing (he had a dark purple tongue at the time). I went in added a little more detailing and went with the pink tongue to bring about some contrast to the model. This guy is going to be hitting a table top near you!
