Hi everyone, hope you're all well. It's been a while since I last posted anything but I am still working on my Unforgiven. Here's my latest project, a converted Dark Angels Interrogator Chaplain:

And here's the artwork that inspired the conversion:

Thanks for looking! ☺

Cables right in the eyesocket, that's Grimdark as heck. I love how much it looks like the artwork, the conversion is spot on.

 

The censer looks odd though. I would reverse the grip, or making the rope coil around the hand once should do the trick as well. Some braided thin wire would make a decent rope.

Cheers! Yeah, the censor is the one element I'm not completely happy with. I'm debating about switching it out for a dagger, or maybe Asmodai's blades of reason.

You could always attach that censor to the bottom of the rope, while giving a dagger in his other hand. Reverse grip dagger would look awesome!

Cheers brothers! Here's the alternative build (still needs some greenstuff to tidy up the wrist):

gallery_917_16510_1384268.jpg

It's diverging from the original artwork, but then I'd already done that with the censor anyway. I think I prefer it, as it helps to reinforce that this is a Dark Angel, and that he's ready for combat as well as interrogations ☺.

Maybe you could model TWC-sized "were-templars" who's inner Templar took over in the fury of battle transforming them into a giant half man - half templar?

I actually built a Sword Bearer marine the other day (the first for quite a while), but that's a post for another time πŸ˜‰.

Decided to cut the blade down a bit, I think it makes him a bit more ominous:

A few suggestions, if I may, on your updated pose:

 

1. Use some greenstuff to fill that gap in between the sword hand and the blade - that gap doesn't look natural.

2. Cut off the buttons on his coat, to make it look more like a robe, and then use some greenstuff to get rid of the creases next to them, to make it look uniform. I suspect that robe might have been from a doctor kit from another series?

3. Perhaps some Dark Angel logos/decals on either his shoulder, or on his robe?

 

Also, I presume that blade is the tip from the Halberd of Caliban, how did you get it so short, while preserving it's look? Genuinely curious.

Not a doctor's coat actually. That body is one of the "Prime Legionaries Bodies: Robed" bodies [their TotallyNot!Dark Angels Primaris laugh.png] from Kromlech, specifically Body 1.

 

However, I do agree that there should be more Dark Angels iconography yes.gif

@ Gederas: Thanks mate, and steal away!☺

@ Skywrath: Cheers mate ☺ I'm going to keep the buttons though, as I think they make the model more closely resemble the artwork. As you can see, there's already a DA chapter symbol on the left shoulder pad, and I'll probably add some decals to the robes/coat as well. I'll be painting him with dark robes (either black or dark grey) like the artwork, so some iconography might help to break up the scheme a little.

The blade is indeed from a Halbard of Caliban, attached to a Grey Knight falchion hand and hilt. I just very carefully shaved it down with a sharp knife to turn it into a dagger.

@ UtariOnzo: Definitely one of his tools of the trade, so to speak. Like I said, I think it makes him look a lot more ominous than the longer blade.

@ Galloway: Cheers mate! πŸ‘ The art, I believe, is one of a number of DA concept art pieces by Dave Gallagher, from a few years and 40k editions ago. They're well worth a Google, and have been a source of great inspiration to me personally.

Yes! Spaced Hulk has returned! It’s great to see more awesomeness coming out of you brother. That chaplain is just screaming all sorts of grimdark, excellent work! I think my only concern, if at all, would be the left arm. I love the pimp stick crozius, but I just feel the left arm is kinda... hanging? If that makes any sense. The bend of the elbow and the wrist more suggests to me him resting a full length staff on the ground. Just a small observation, and it might be too late as you are about to prime him

I like the conversion a lot but i would beef up that crozius head
In the DA veterans sprue and also in the RW sprue there are some cool banner tops you can use to make some cool crozius heads

I did the same on the primaria Chaplain and the crozius is now more imposing (and the skull at the top of the crozius is now on top of a aggressors sgt back pack to show his rank)

Looks awesome! Well done, dagger was the way to go - for the up close and personal touch.

Agree with comment about crozius, I like that it's simple, but if it had wings or an iron halo or something it would read more like a deadly weapon than magic wand.or just add a bunch of spikes like the artwork? :)

Either way great work, look forward to seeing it painted!

Leave the pimpstick as is. It resembles the artwork perfectly. And I like the new Crozius, it reminds me of a WH-version of the WW1 cudgels.

 

Prime that bastard up and start painting!

+1 to topping the crozius with one of the DA robed angel icons. That said, if you like the skull better, use the skull.

Thanks for the feedback everyone πŸ‘. I'm keeping the crozius as it is though, partly because I already have loads of DA Chaplains with traditional looking Crozius Arcanums (several built using the icons that were suggested), but mainly because the pimpstick really does match the artwork, which was the whole reason for converting the model.

@ Greenz: Cheers mate! I can kind of see where you're coming from with the left arm, but I think it's the best pose for the model to keep it in line with the artwork. In my head, he's holding the crozius aloft and addressing his battle brothers, something like "You all know what this is and what it does. Kill the heretics, and don't ask any questions. Especially about that Chaos Marine over there with the familiar heraldry. Or else!" πŸ™‚

@ Sandalphon: I did think about adding barbs and spikes, but decided against it. They'd either be too large, changing the appearance of the crozius, or too small and fragile, and frequently at risk of breaking off every time I use him in a game. I'm imagining instead that they retract into the haft of the crozius when not in use (eg: when he's not doing any interrogating πŸ™‚).

The model is primed now and he's skipped to the front of my painting queue, so when he's finished I'll post some more pics. Thanks again everyone for the feedback and encouragement πŸ‘.
