Love the conversion! Not only is it a great take on medieval history, but also what all chaos beaky helms should look like.

Count-as Belial. I decided to make one after the rather disappointing release of the official model (and because I had the bitz kicking around).

I just got the Reaper Cthulhu model in the mail today and I took some measurements and photos of it assembled.

This baby is big. REAL big. He can easily stand in for a Chaos Knight if you so wanted, though the size of the tail might be an issue. It comes in 8 parts: base, body, 2 arms, head, tail, and 2 wings. They all slot together reasonably well, and in the photos there I haven't glued a single thing together so the fittings are pretty snug. My only issue is that the base is warped a little, so making him stand up is a bit of a pain, but that's nothing a hot water treatment can't fix. Otherwise it's a great model, and I could see some pretty rad conversions coming from it.

General size comparison:

That would do nicely as a Chaos Knight of Tzeentch. I probably wouldn't field one because it goes against my style of play, but I love me some Cthulhu.
Fantasy is cool. Sci-fi is cool too. But when you combine them, they become even cooler.

AoS might be a bad and dumb game, but Sigmarines go for dirt cheap on ebay and make for great conversion fodder.

Those are awesome conversions. And they have so much surface area for details, and the skeletons on the shields and such. Very well done. They make for some great undead warriors.

How big are they? Compare to a human, like a warhammer fantasy Empire model? Or other undead?

They're roughly comparable to a Terminator in size, so they stand about a head above human-sized models. Google brings this up:

They're big, but not TOO big.

Very cool use of Sigmarines.

I dig how in a setting where giant, muscled fungus men ride Mad Max cars and use their own teeth as currency, the concept of little engineering dudes with beards was considered a step too far down the aisle of silliness.
