This project has been a long time coming… One of the first models I conceived of for Mariners Blight finally become a reality. A mutated octopus , diver daemon engine of pure steampunk Lovecraftian evilness!
Named from Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos; Defiler Azathoth is a splice of a Collecta Octopus toy and a Forgeworld Khorne Blood Slaughter Impaler. I carried the top carapace armour pattern over to the octopus waist area and used Green Stuff Industries Tentacle Maker to make loads of awesome tubing around the body core.
The arms were modified to be magnetized and the Khorne stylized impaler was converted to look like one helluva nasty harpoon launcher. The helmet much like my Mariners Blight Dreadnought was made by using a Chaos Tank Searchlight lens for a diver helmet look. The base was from Secret Weapon Miniatures, modified with a wrecked row boat and some additional floating skulls/bones.
I'm very pleased with how this Character turned out. I can't wait to field him!
