I just finished him painting. I took a bit different path in painting him compared to the rest of the army, I think the characters will resemble him, while the troops will follow a bit more simple. So here you go, as always commets are welcome.
For some time now I've been converting this mini, the first true HQ choice for my little chapter. I have a full plastic army in mind, so there was a lot of work with him: all parts, limbs etc were converted, nothing is untouched. Actually this mini was made with a local converting competition in mind, I have secret hopes to win it. (In reality nearly always Orc or Chaos minis win these tournaments....)
I hope you like it!
The torso is made from a tactical sergeant's bit, the head is from an old Catachan mini. Instead of the banner, I used some banner-like things from the ravenwing sprue. The legs are repositioned, the feet have lobstered guards. The loincloth is that of an AoBr captain's
I made new style shoulder pads for him, and attached a laser engraved chapter symbol
I like the way the powerpack turned out...
The powersword is made of a piece of plastic, a terminator ornament some lead wire and greenstuff.
And the same with a coat of dark grey primer (as primer brings things together so nicely):
If you are interested in how tis or that detail was made do not hesitate to ask. Comments are welcome too.
