When Angron the Daemon Primarch of the World Eaters invaded Armegedon, Korlictus was a champion of the Skull Takers that partook. He fought valiantly against the Wolves of Russ and whatever pitiful defense that the world could muster and collected skulls by the dozen for his master. It was when the Grey Knights arrived that Korlictus was cut down. Khorne however was not done with Korlictus yet and spared his life for another day... Korlictus lived, by only through interment of a dreadnaught sarcophagus. He continues to wage war and collect skulls til this very day.
When I decided to expand my 'Ard Boyz list to three Stormravens and Dreads, I realized I needed to make one of the Dreads a Furiouso as I had no troop slots available. With it being a Furiouso, I wanted to give it a unique look to seperate it from the Death Co Dreads... This one had to be a Chaotic equivelant of a Venerable, and fortunately that was the only Dread my FLGS had available.
I also had the daemonic mount left over from the WHFB Khorne lord. Originally I was only going to place the head over the sarcophogus, however I later decided to incorporate the legs as well. I then made sure to add plenty of spikey bits and skulls to cover up any loyalist nonsense.
I made the Blood Talons from the sword scabbards from the Khorne Berserkers box. I was tempted to file them all down at first, but decided to leave it as decoration. The skulls all over the chest are from the skulls bitz collection off GW's website and the chains bit and spikes on top came from the Chaos Vehicle sprue.
I'm tempted to add a tail similar to the Trygon to this model as it looks a little top heavy at the moment. I'm a little hesitant to make it using wires and green stuff, however I'm more hesitant to buy a Trygon just for its tail. I love the model and would be delighted to have one, but I don't know what use I'd put it to...
