All the more fun to convert if you ask me. We've done Fulgrim, Magnus, and now of course, Angron!
I liked the ferocity of the figure, it's sheer bulk and animosity. I also got a sense the from the concept art of Angron being almost apelike, and I really wanted a chance to bring forth that quality in the conversion.
The conversion itself was a kitbasher's dream. I got to use the biggest bits I could find. I wanted a figure that would compare size wise with An-ggrath from Forgeworld. To get a figure of that scale, I'd need to start with a big base model. The Cygor was a good place to start.
Adding to this were arms from a maulerfiend, the sword from a soul grinder, a few assorted chaos bits, as well as the wings from a Hive Tyrant. For a few other off beat bits, I found these shoulder pads on a Skeletor Samurai (don't laugh) toy, and the head from a Reaper King Kong like figure called the Giant Ape Lord.
This figure is currently available for sale on ebay.
