You might remember (or not) this post about an Alpha Legion Lord on Palanquin. I already told then that it was my intention to recover the original essence of it. I mean this, Lord of Ultramarines sitting on his throne:
|Hey! Can't you knock before opening the WC door?|
The illustration is taken from the first 'Index Astartes' section ever published, which appeared in White Dwarf #97. Well, a couple of things have changed in the Ultramarines since then, but I'm not talking today about Master of the Ships Christo Columbine, Master of Sanctity Tow Takka-Chow or half-blood Chief Librarian Astropath Illiyan Nastase ;). Today I'll just focus on this set. After some work I came along with the pieces:
|No, they're not floating in space|
With just two foamboard pieces I got this:
|Come on, he even has a constipated face|
|No, seriously, who did build the audience room in a toilet? Is Macragge not big enough?|
Now I have to find the patience to prepare some flags for the wall or any other trophy, but for the moment I simply wanted to have the display, as the minis were rolling all over my workbench. Now I'm moving on other things, but I might come back on this project anytime.
As these pics are not so much, I'm giving you a few things more ;). Nothing special... or maybe it is. Two old terminator armour marines:
|Mk.II. Hard to believe this is a GW model, huh?|
|Mk.III. Different again...|
Despite the anatomical issues regarding arms (poor guys in those armours) I find these models somehow appealing, as strange as it may sound, specially the turtleback guy. I've been looking for a Mk.I over eBay, but prices are still out of my budget. I'd like to assemble a five men squad with these old armours, but I may have to wait a bit, I'm afraid. Haven't lost hope yet...
