The Savlar Chem Dogs


Well, we're just of five weeks into the Heroes of Armageddon project and conversions and test models are just starting to appear on the blogs of those hard working folks across the US and Canada. Not to be left behind, I figured I'd show you all the first figures completed for the Steel Legion army - the first squad of Savlar Chem Dogs.


Why the Chem Dogs first? Well, to be honest, they were already done. I converted and painted this squad 11 years ago when I was inspired by the John Wigley artwork that appeared in White Dwarf. This squad went on to appear on the Third War for Armageddon website and then in the Chapter Approved - Savlar Chem Dogs article. All it took to bring these models up to snuff was a quick dusting, a switch of their ochre fabric from Bubonic Brown to Tau Sept Ochre, and a repaint of their bases to the new scheme.


It was a lot of fun checking out the old models again, particularly trying to remember the origins of the backpacks these scroungers are all laden with.

Well, more Heroes of Armageddon stuff to come, some of it quite soon I hope.

In the meantime, if you're in the Richmond, VA, area this Sunday, make sure you get along to FTW Games for their Charity Tournament that'll be raising money for disaster relief in Japan. Check out the details on Rob's site here.

Cheers
Dave

  1. It's always good to see a darker corner of the game lit up again, and these haven't got old. Amazing how much there's been over the years that just sinks back. The Necromunda gangs were great for backpacks, and I'd guess they were a source of one or two.

  6. Great ChemDogs. I am thinking about starting a chem dogs army, and I must know what you used for the heads on those boys. They look great, where did you get them?

  7. They look like the old school metal Chaos Terminator heads, with the backs of the heads sculpted on. I suppose they may be either plastic Chaos Space Marine biker heads, from the 2nd/3rd edition CSM Bike boxed set, or actual Savlar Chem Dogs from Forgeworld, too, I suppose?

  8. @Wyatt - Scott was right with his first guess, the old metal Chaos Termie heads with the backs sculpted on with greenstuff.

    @Scott - Forgeworld never actually made Savlar Chem Dogs, more's the pity.
