Awesome concepts on the Chaplain, dude. Very cool rebreather idea. Can't wait to see it painted!

Might as well furnish this double-post with some validity:

Trying out a new basecoat for a quicker yellow recipe. Barbarian Flesh spray from The Army Painter

Much deeper and darker than my original peachpuke colour. Need advice about lightening it up:

  • Eldar Flesh dry compound
  • Dusting of skull white spray
  • Layering the hard way

Moving right along then...

He looks a bit busy for my taste, but I love the servo arms and the choice of head. And yes, that power weapon is indeed quite ambiguous :jaw:

Devastator Plasmacannon backpack, searchlight back and normal backpack, 2 x enginseer servo arms, assorted hacked bits of Jes Goodwin 90s servitor/techmarine arms, and I believe the rocket loader servitor's arm from an exorcist tank were the ingredients. Which makes him a $200 conversion or something, but whatever:

Hes gonna look great with some paint on, thanks for the parts list. I really like the look of the newest weapon. Is it a conversion beamer? Im not too hot on Imperial tech

Oh yes, yes indeed. A Conversion Beamer. I have this idea of making use of the hollowness to model a bionic arm in there. Filling it in or plasticarding over it seems like a cheap solution.

That would look sweet. Im guessing youre going to magnetize the arm.

Thanks gents,

Yep magnets are a central part of my army-building philosophy. It's appropriate for an initiate of the Martian mysteries to have a detachable arm, no?

I'm getting steadily happier with this bloke:

There's an arm in there, but not bionic. I had the thought when I chose his head (being entirely organic, and hirsute to boot) that this particular Martian initiate regards the Emperor's superhuman creations as proof positive of mankind's primacy. As such the Adeptus Astartes physical form - being itself the Emperors own handiwork - is not to be sullied by crude bionics except where injury makes those necessary. This fiercely held view brought him to blows with several of his Medusan counterparts during his time on Mars, but despite these violent altercations and seven hundred years of active duty with the Imperial Fists he has never suffered injury more severe than his ascension surgeries. He does however keep four severed and scrimshandered metallic fingers as trophies from his early years, and as proof that Emperor-wrought flesh is at least the equal of iron.

Chapter badge to to replace the absent pauldron. A Master of the Forge knows that the armour's war spirit must be respected at all times.
