The grimdark future holds countless exciting ways to remove pesky problems like hab-blocks, hives and even entire planets, and now here's your chance to unleash your inner heretek and build your very own! Giant bombs or unstable generators, sinister looking McGuffins or exotic death rays, mounted on cyber monstrosities or not, anything goes! Time to strap on the lab gloves, practice your binharic cackling, and make them rue the day they called you mad!

Do machines need to be involved. Can I have a purely artificially created but biological thing kicking rear end.
Thinking of a certain clone lord and the beasties he might create.

As it is an album not a wip thread will also clutter up this thread with wip pic's.

Fabius Bile and a new man will be fending of agents of the Inquisition. In a lab centered around a vat/bacta-tank etc. Containing a beast/clone gone wrong. So vile that it must be stopped before it is awoken.

Slightly ambitious but if I actually start now and not with one week to go. I might just pull it off.

The title makes it sound like a perfect opportunity to model up a Chaos Spawn, the description makes me think something much larger would be required...

Chaos spawn would be acceptable, but it would have to be cybernetically enhanced/controlled! (Think the big guys from doom)

Nice, a lot of options with this one. I thought I might take a break from the comps, but very tempted to get into this. I am thinking a big guy, suitably enhanced with tech, made to destroy a chosen location and everyone in it. Think a mix of T-00 from Resident Evil and Adam from Buffy. I'll have a look in the old box in the garage, see what comes up...

I didn't have any suitable big-guy models to go with the T-00/Adam-type idea. But I can't seem to stop planning for this comp, so might as well have a go. It'll be a hulking, gun-fused, plasma-powered, armour-plated sump beast, sent to eradicate the Iron Masks (gives me an excuse to build more of my Cawdor gang!) by a techno-telepath, who was driven out of Sump Falls for his wyrd powers. Or as close as I can get to that... 😁

I'mtrying to resist the pull. It doesn't fit anything that is on my back log, but it is very inspiring. If I did then it would be an epic scale diorama of two custom titans (made with the 3d pen my wife bought me) and a couple of infantry. Damn it's difficult to resist. It's an Akira style implosion.
