The Reclusiam fights for Sanguinius!

Converted this guy as per the FTW post on how to do the skull helmets, chains weren't that much of a pain but I fear I lost some detail when anchoring them securely onto it, not that much but there is a bit of a mass of CA glue.Still I'm satisfied with the results and the Rosarius came out pretty nice there on the chest.

Heavy gear

Some work left to do on mah libby. I decided to do a cape style thing flowing back and trust me, it'll look a lot better just with the priming but you can get the overall idea with the following mock up-

Also I'm working on building up some transparent wings as a psychic power and an am planning on coloring them them transparent red in the right places, having tendrils of psychic energy floating around, fun stuff.

Next up are my devvies.. I had a fun time building them and managed to turn 1 box of them into 10, sacrificing some peeps from the tactical squad but I'm confident I made the right choice, as my use of tacs will probably be limited, and devs are much more expensive ($$$ wise) than tacs so it seems more efficient for me.
I tried to make the Sarge look as much as an assault marine as possible, in case he ever gets the red thirst :p

Just love the look of a pissed off marine with a heavy bolter

Old school meets new school

I did some minor modeling work to get the movement pose right on the gun

just tried to make the guy on the right more bad ass, as well as some minor modding on the hand adjusting the launcher's targeting mechanism. I forgot to take a picture, but the guy on the left has a bolt pistol attached to his backpack (which I imagine the servo arm hands him when he runs out of ammo.)

Tried to be original, too bad it didn't reach as far to get him to actually load it.

Plasma shots, I imagine, create some nice wind effects- all of that energy being shot forward.

just a knife for CC

Sons of Sanguinius

Well I want to liven my blog up a bit and it sure will happen this year with this new camera I've got!

I've felt that my models do better in-game when I use the proper miniatures, so I've decided to have a go at creating my HQ Librarian which so far has been doing terribly because I'd used all other sorts of miniatures to represent him. I do have 3 other Librarians, 1 of them from Space Hulk (I'd post the pics up but honestly, who hasn't seen the SH minis by now?) but all of them are in terminator armour.

Anyway I wanted this guy to be as Blood Angely as possible, basically my idea is to make these guys look as much like a walking Roman-Catholic church as possible. This meant I would need to use plastic kits, but where would I get the bits to make a librarian? Well that's where the sweet part of this blog post comes! I'm going to post up the following pics of my conversion and the first person who lists where all the relevant bits come from gets free sculpture work done by yours truly with a satisfaction guarantee.* So what are you waiting for?
