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|
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:
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...
This stuff is simply incredible! Well done again mate!ReplyDelete
Thank you! The force is growing slowly...Delete
The operation is full success!ReplyDelete
Well done. doctor!
Haha, thanks! Hopefully the postoperative will be ok!Delete
Pretty Cool as always mate!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I still have to build many more!Delete
Fantastic conversions to create your wonderful chaplain! He's great!ReplyDelete
Thank you! The original mini is quite charming, so anything I was to build upon it was meant to look badass :DDelete
Great work yet again Suber ... that fellowship looks top, top quality.ReplyDelete
Thanks! They look like they have some anger issues, but I hope it can be solved...Delete
I didn't forget about this project and I'm happy you didn't either ;).ReplyDelete
Wonderful conversion, just as with the rest. Though it feels as if the head is a bit small, could be vision is slightly distorted from seeing too many incorrectly shaped marines though :D.
Nevertheless, it's your freehand that makes him shine in my opinion because his paintjob is sublime.
Thanks! Oh, but I like that helmet so much! I considered about the new Reiver skull helmets, but I thought this one would fit in better -and allow me to paint the tattoo stuff. Thanks, glad you like it!Delete
