Well Met Brothers!

 

I am putting together a Space Hulk specific Death Wing force complete with custom bases and eventually individual write ups in the same fashion as the BAs supplied with the game.

 

I am using the Dark Vengeance TDA models and DW Command squad. I am having fun with the conversions, but I am struggling when it comes to making my Ezekiel terminator.

 

I want him to be recognizable as the character so I will be modelling him with traitor's bane, his signature facemask/bionic eye, heraldry, and books, but wanted your feed back as to whether or not I should sculpt his robes in the same way as the power armoured model, or go for a more open looking robe which is more common amongst our Tactical Dreadnaught Armoured brethren...   

 

In the mean time, here are 5 of the bases that I have created to date:

Is not about modeling, but have you looked at this yet? Might have some stuff that interests you.

As far as Ezekiel, I would go for a tabard and cape, or tabard across both front and back, to better match the rest of the units, since he doesn't actually wear TDA.

Thank you Bryan, I am starting to lean towards the tabard and cape side of things.
I have seen this project, and I am very excited about it. It has revitalized my space hulk project.

I know that Ezekiel doesn't wear TDA, but I figured if Mephiston can pull it off then why not my favorite librarian Ezekiel.

I meant more of "Why drive yourself insane trying to model some full robes on TDA when you don't have to, since Ezekial's image isn't in TDA?" Full robes are only found on the power armor models, so no reason to use Ezekial's image to try and model them. If you do want to, you are both crazy and going to need to make enough slits to allow for TDA movement without tearing the robes, otherwise it would just seem silly (let's wrap a bed sheet around this and then rip it all up!). :)

I agree. Full robes on a terminator look too restrictive a lot of the time. I would go with a Deathwing Knight body if you want some robes, possibly with the cloak, or do what I did a few years ago and use Black templar power-armoured tabard bodies and a bit of green stuff to join them to terminator armour backs. I've included a bad photo below for reference.

 

 

The thing that makes Ezekiel identifiable as Ezekiel is the two-handed force sword and his pose. The Deathwing Knights box comes with a nice big sword which you could modify to look suitably force-weapony (it's a technical term). Maybe change the grip so he is holding it two handed or upright and it might echo the character model (not that you necessarily need to).

Thank you Brothers!
I am inclined to agree that robes and a cloak are the way to go with this project.
I am going to do my best to replicate the pose, sword, and head of the origin model. Then of course I can add the books, keys etc...
Thank you for your feed back.

Will do.

I am working on a similar project with my GK Librarian linked in my sig. He does have a two handed pose, but it is to the side not straight up. Rest assured I will be making the Ezekiel pose devil.gif

I do REALLY like that model. I was thinking that I could use the model as a reference piece. I like how his robes look from the front, but I am not the biggest fan of how the cape falls on the back of the model. I will need to alter that, but a great idea thank you.

I have decided to start the Death wing project of with Brother Lemnos, who is my counts as Brother Omnio. 

He is still very much a WIP but I like where things are going.

 

I have used the chainsword arm because after I add a lens or two to it I believe that it will make a nice scanner or targeting device worthy of one as technologically inclined as Lemnos.

The servo arm is still WIP, and I am going to add cables/wires, and determine how best to mount and position it.

I plan to further personalize him through the use of red in his heraldry to distinguish his connection to the mechanicus.

Brother Lemnos is analytical, driven by logic, and intellectually curios almost to the extreme. These qualities often lead to Lemnos withdrawing from his brethren between missions to analyze, compile, and process the information and experiences of previous missions. Lemnos' isolating behavior has lead his battle-brothers to perceive him as aloof. This perception does not however tarnish the respect and value his battle-brothers place in his ability to provide them with sound tactical analysis in even the most voracious of actions/situations.

Although I like the ideas behind this model very much indeed, keep in mind he is in Terminator armour and could conceivably mount much bigger/heavier servo arm(s) and equipment.

But overall a great project. Looking forwards to seeing more.

But remember he still has to move around and fight in cramped conditions, make sure it all loks like it can fold down behind the back, like Ferrus Manus's backpack.

Great points Brothers, thank you.

 

Looking at the model again I can see that the scale of the servo arm is off, and that it needs to be beefier.

I think that my next attempt at this will be to create a folded arm.

 

This project is strictly for Space Hulk, so I do not want a full scale Tech marine terminator. I am aiming for a Space Hulk relevant servo arm that looks as though it could be used in the cramped and confined spaces in the Space Hulk. 

 

Back to the drawing board I go. geek.gif

Your painted terminators look very nice, but what really caught my eye were those dies you have in the background, where did you get them from?

LOL! Those are Brother Gillyfish's models not mine laugh.png

I believe the die are part of an initiative run by this forum in which you can order B&C dice.

:D They are indeed B&C dice from a while back. Square so they are statistically less likely to roll ones than rounded dice.

 

And thanks for the comment about my painted models, but I do hope I haven't hijacked the thread!

Brother Nuriel rose to the Deathwing from the ranks of the Dark Angel's devastator squads. Nuriel's ability to read the ebb and flow of the enemy in battle is a skill which has prevented his Brethren from being flanked or overrun on numerous occasions, and continues to serve him and his squad mates well in the close quartered fighting onboard Space Hulks. 

 

Brother Nuriel is a man of few words, but when he does speak it is usually to apply his dry and sarcastic humour to the situation at hand and goad his Brothers. Despite being continuously reprimanded for his comments by command, Brother Nuriel's contributions to the com net help to deepen the bond between the squad members.

I agree with Isiah. I like this servo arm. Feels like it would certainly be helpful in clearing narrow corridors of obstructions. The other looked more like it would be suited for a Apothecary and his tools… so I wouldn't totally scrap it. Might be a nice addition to the Apoth if you repurpose it.

I am grateful of your earlier feedback brothers. I feel that the new servo arm is coming along nicely and is a lot more appropriate. I am excited to finish this guy.
