This chaos space marine conversion was built primarily to explore the pose -- a "hunter" with a large spear as a close combat weapon.

The components consist of a loyalist marine (torso, head, bolt pistol arm, right arm stub, 1 shoulder pad), traitor marine (shoulder pad, power pack, legs, bolter) and a spear hand and arm from the WFB zombie boxed set. The zombie hand was pinned to the stub of the right arm using a small length of a paper clip and posed such that it looks like the marine is jogging along, pursuing some prey. Meanwhile, if you look closely at the left leg, you can see that I've totally removed the thigh and replaced it with a small number of bunched together paperclip lengths that are glued together.

The base consists primarily of Hirst Arts cast-off bits that didn't get used on other scenery projects, plus some plastic bits at the rear (just out of the line of sight due to the Hirst Arts bits).

As a final touch, I performed a bit of weathering on the marine by drilling in some bullet holes scattered around the miniature (e.g. the left shin). Overall, I like the feeling of this miniature. I may add it in to my long-planned Night Lords unit.

Liking the model so far; the spear gives him an almost primative feel to him. I can imagine this guy running through corrupt woods in search of some lone Imperialists.

Might almost be better if you made him using Space Wolf parts instead of generic loyalist marine, as then you could have the furs from his hunts on his back. Still cool though.

Thanks guys!
@Max: I hadn't considered using Space Wolf parts -- but now that you mention it, it is a splendid idea :)
