Finished the last Outrider and thus a complete squad is ready. Planning to designate it Squad 7 in the Company structure (now 86 marines)
I've recently found old Bretonnia knights decals as you see
For this box at the rear I had to remove the rail and file the box itself a bit to make it fit under the marines backpack. The rolled cloth is actually hanging in the air over the tyre, but it's not that obvious and I'm glad with being able to add an extra bit of equipment.
Here is the complete squad:
I also started looking at the Bladeguard and pre-assembled them to look for easy posing opportunities first. Nothing interesting to show so far. But I did start working on the Judiciar after stumbling upon an very interesting fluff piece in the DoB.
I figured it would make a lovely theme for building a Judiciar-equivalent
So far I removed the hanging sleeve and added right pauldron. had to cut the arm just above the quillons' line. After that it was fairly simple to reposition the arm to accomodate for the bulk of the pauldron. The arm itself is slightly off it's original alignement, but when I added the front section it it's almost totally invisible. The blade rests on the pauldron now instead of the backpack, which is also much more natural for a balanced blade.
Sword got a sharp tip both to match the chosen theme and to distance it from the original executioner's blade fluff.
I really do not like the initial nonense of a Judiciar executing marines. It's stupid enough in a vanilla chapter's setting and with Blood Angels it gets all the more layers of improbability if you factor in things like the innate compassion of the line of Sanguinius, the fact that BA are a dwindling chapter, Dante himself, etc.
Still a very early WIP, but basic idea is already forming in my head. We'll see where it will take me I think I will need to resculpt the damaged belt buckle (previously partly covered by cloth) and then probably create the other half of the surplice.
