Dave Taylor Takes On The Venomcrawler Conversion Challenge!

March 27, 2019 by crew

Dave Taylor has taken Warren's challenge to heart and begun work on turning the Venomcrawler from Warhammer 40,000: Shadowspear into an Imperial vehicle, looking back to what might have inspired this mutated machine by Games Workshop. Here's what it looks like...

...and through his Project, which you can follow along with HERE, Dave Taylor is going to be taking these bitz and working out what to change to make it fit into his Adeptus Mechanicus force.

He has already broken down the components and is working through removing all of the Chaos iconography and such but there's also additional work going into this as he looks to other aspects he wants to bring in to help develop this.

Venomcrawler Bitz #1

For example, he has already sourced some options from the Adeptus Mechanicus range that he wants to use when it comes to designing the Imperial origins of the Venomcrawler.

He is also taking cues from a range of different vehicles and such that exist within the Adeptus Mechanicus collection with a hope of finding some inspiration as he goes forward.

With that in mind, make sure to get involved with his Project and feed some comments in on each of the different posts where he explores new techniques and alternative methods for Imperialising (now totally a word) this horrifying creature of the warp.

Make sure to go and check out more from Dave Taylor over on his Website as well as the Kickstarter he ran for Armies & Legions & Hordes plus of course his new venture alongside Mel TheTerrainTutor for a Terrain Essentials book.

How would you approach such an immense task as this?
