I bet you forgot I was doing those realscale Space Sharks by now! Well, I can't blame you (sigh), but I can bring you more stuff!
When I saw the mini of the Sarge I knew I had to do something special. It certainly deserved it:
|What do you mean 'over the top'?|
It was a candidate for the Veteran Squad Sergeant, of course, but I thought it could serve as a Chaplain as well. Hmmm, but it would need some conversion work...
|We can arrange something|
The head and top Crozius Arcanum are from my old 2nd Ed. Chaplain. The rest of the Crozius is a Grey Knights staff. The greenstuff work was kind of tricky, as turning all those strips into some full cloak was not as easy as expected. I crossed my fingers and hoped that the paintjob could solve the most obvious failures.
|So more Maori inspired designs were required|
This is the final result:
|'Brother! You call that a haka? Outrageous!'|
Combining Maori and Warhammer iconography is a fun thing to do. Jade toki, facial tatoo on the skull helmet... You can integrate that kind of elements into the Space Marine concept, and they work surprisingly well.
|I should have painted something more on the back cloak|
Here you can see the Chaplain alongside the other characters:
|What a happy fellowship|
As I see the pics I think I could add something on the backpack. Not sure if a banner (I haven't done that with the Captain and could also do that) or some other element, just like the Librarian.
Hmmm... still some decisions to make...
