In order to meet the Force Selection requirements of needing to have either a Praetor or Thegn in every army, as well as having to have a HQ choice for every 1000pts of the army, it was time to bulk out the compulsory campaign.
Taking inspiration from my recent conversion of Ulric the Slayer into a 30k Speaker of the Dead, the Thegn is based around the principle aesthetic of Krom Dragongaze.
The torso front and legs were substituted for plastic MkIII Iron Armour variants, with some details added to make them more legions specific. The right shoulder pad was kept, but using some greenstuff and rivets was modified to MkIII, this was complimented with a replacement fur pelt front leg.
The arms from Krom Dragongaze were retained, the vambraces being essentially MkII, these were built upon with green stuff alterations to the elbow pads and additional plating to make them MkIII. The power plant from Krom Dragongaze was carefully cut up and used to convert a MkIII power pack.
The weapons were added as a more tactical choice, a Power Axe and Plasma Pistol, the axe is taken from the Forge World Cataphractii Terminator Librarian.
Until Next Winter…
