I’ve been thinking about a converting Valkia the bloody from the new warriors of chaos book for a couple of weeks, but after a discussion with Carl this evening and his view that I don’t have any ‘true’ conversions in my collection, the plan to build her has been brought forward to try and disprove this.
The first thing I do (as I expect the others do) is to see if anyone has already done it and pinch some of their ideas if possible.
First one that comes up on google is from warseer (post here). Very good attempt, but maybe a bit big. I’d expect her to be very slightly bigger than a chaos warrior.
A couple of forums have hinted at using the living saint as a base for her. I pretty much stubbled onto the same idea whilst in Games Workshop the other week. Armoured boobs. Perfect. I’ll substitute her legs for a spare pair of bloodletters legs. Not sure how the spear will be done, maybe use one of the spare ones from the new chaos knights. She carries a shield with a daemon locked inside. If my memory serves me correctly there is a good one again in the chaos knights box.
Not sure on the wings or the face yet.
Belows a picture which kind of shows whats going on in my mind right now.
