Well... I think I’ll finally call this guy done... he’s the first of the entries I’m putting together for golden demon in May. Don’t worry, he’s not a stand alone miniature, there’s more to it which I’ll share later. But for now the centre piece is finished I think...
Edit: I was asked for a parts list, so here goes...
The body is Forge World's Alexis Polux miniature. I absolutely love this miniature and this is the second time I've painted him (I kept him pretty much as standard the first time round, here). The armour looks very knightly, which fits with the imagery on the front of the Fallen Angels and other Horus Heresy novels. I don't imagine Dark Angels are wearing too many robes in 30k, they're still more knight than monk in my mind. There's some WIP pics of the armour here.
The helmet is a mixture of the Forge World Dark Angel helmet upgrade, with the wings from the Dark Angels veteran box.
The sword and plasma pistol are from the Dark Angels upgrade pack. I really liked those sculpts and thought they'd add a little ornamentation on what is actually quite a plain miniature.
The sword arm shoulder pad and tilt plate are from the Dark Angels Interrogator Chaplain. Honestly, I liked that shoulder pad so much that I brought the miniature just to get it. Nothing else would have looked right in my mind. The plasma pistol shoulder pad is Polux's standard one (switched to the other arm), and the backpack is his too.
the cape... now, the cape. That was tricky. I first wanted to use the cape from the Interrogator Chaplain, but couldn't get it to fit right, so ended up using one from a spare 30k Ahriman miniature. I had a couple of him from Burning of Prospero. Some WIP shots here.
Anyway, thanks for taking a look. I've had some amazing feedback on this piece. Let me know if there's anything else you want to know.
