That is a FANTASTIC Conversion! I am really impressed and I would have never thought to use beastmen bits before. I want to do something like that now... Maybe a beastmen themed Daemon army...

I used that head on my bloodthrister, very cool. Granesh gave used a troll head on my other one, also a good choice.

Overall, I really like the look of what you've done here. The double headed axe is awesome!

For a BloodThirster, I would like to see some more chains, and spikey bitz, but that's just personal preferrence. One suggestion I would offer would be to cut away the ears on the minotaur heads. This would help reduce the bovine look of the heads and give a bit more of an otherworldly, daemonic vibe to the project.

Regardless of all that, the concept and completion of the conversion is spot on. Someday when I do my own Khornate daemon contingent, I may very well "borrow" this idea. Consider imitation to be the sincerest form of flattery! ;)

Thanks for showing, this rocks!

Thanks for the comments guys. These are a work in progress and I am working on procuring more spiky bits. I want all 16 of them to be unique, so random spiky bits will abound. I contemplated using the Balrog or Dweller in the Dark head/model but the cost and material was prohibitive. Plastic was better for my purposes. I've seen some great conversions with that model and yours looks great. I will look into losing the ears. I guess you can't tell whether the actual bloodthirster model has them or not. Thanks again for the comments and suggestions.
