Continuing with my Legions project and after receiving an untraceable communique of mysterious origin, I decided to make a Vigilator Consul of the XXth Legion. Though whether or not this decision was really mine, or implanted inspiration will never be clear...
I wanted to use MK6 Power Armour, the designs for which having been easily acquired by the Alpha Legion, and having recently read 'Deliverance Lost' felt that regardless of rank, any member of the XXth worth his salt would try to stay as discreet as possible, and thus have little, if any ornamentation to his armour.
The cloaked head from the recent Deathwatch: Death Masque boxed set fits the covert aesthetic well I think, and I took a rifle from the Raven Guard Mor Deythan squad to equip him with.
The legs have been true-scaled, and I removed the support for his left shin to make his pose look a little less 'static'.
I really want some feedback on his pose, and use of parts before I sculpt the seals and add a cloak. Other than that I will add a couple of packs at the hips and a combat blade secures to his left greave.
Hope you enjoy!
You make it look so easy! And so very tempting.
If I wasn't a slow builder I would be all over this. Seeing as I will be playing more skirmish level battles with smaller teams that temptation is rising.
The beauty of this technique is that, as it is in stages, you can complete other work while you wait for putty to dry!
The MkIII (and II) armour really lends itself to true-scaling. Very impressive work
Thank you sir! I will wait for mk2 plastics (if they every get released!) before trying. From experience, unless they've changed the moulds, the mk2 legs are rather skinny!
Oh Its so tempting to recreate...
Thank you for the tutorial, and as always - excellent work!
Thank you Robzilla! Do iiiiiiittttt.....!
Damn, I might have to give this a go... great tutorial by the way!
Thanks man! It's what it's there for! I'd be very keen to see results if you decide to give it a go!
Some rather wonderful converted characters here of late! And I really love how much each of them embodies the essence of their respective legions! Fantastic stuff!
Thank you squire! I have endeavoured to capture each Legion as best possible, so your feedback is very satisfying indeed!
