So it was originally envisaged by me that I would do a Thousand Son style head dress for him, I started making it from plasticard and although was decent it just looked out of place, so I binned it.
I then started thinking of alternatives, and for some reason a mix of Pan from Pan's Labyrinth and Tim Curry's character from Legend began to formulate in my mind. I also decided that I really liked the mouth and chin of the stock face and decided to retain it. Obviously wanting to keep with the Cthuhlu influence I kept some of the tentacle beard, tentacle mutton chops it was.....
I had also added in 9 eyes onto his chest. Down side of the above model was that there was little of interest on the head, just a bald dome, so I started thinking of Peloquin from Nightbreed and felt that it would give him a "mane" similar to the stock model whilst being suitably altered and unique.
I am happy with the final result, let's hope that the painting is suitably good to showcase the conversion. Few more models to build and I am ready to paint!
