That icon is wicked, niely done!
Thanks mate! I originally wanted to just push mould one from a land raider door.. but the Astral Claws stuff is super hard to find now!
That is just beautiful! The terminators are fantastic but that shield! That just dialed everything up to 11.
This is just so crazy. I love the whole new look you've given the Terminators. Recognizable but still unique.
Thanks mate, I definitely wanted them to still have a 'basic' terminator feel to them (hence use of normal heads, arms etc) while still having them look a bit more like verterans of hundreds of years, almost walking reliquaries sort of thing. I find that stock standard marine termies are far to sparse of cool clutter!
Ok short of a bit of sanding and final gap filling with liqued greenstuff, I'm happy to call these guys done!
The big nasty himself, Huron.He hasn't changed a whole heap from the front, except that upon suggestion from some of the delightful peeps here I re-did he loincloth, made it much shorter and tried to get sharper definition the the leather decoration (it was so bloody hard and still not perfect.. but you get the point ).
A little blurry, so apologies for that. Just put a press mold of the Custodes Bro's lions head on Huron to really drive home the use of lion ionography. I also added a few more chains + chained skulls to blend the GS areas in with the resin parts a little more, hope it turned out ok.
Now Ancient Zah-Eil hasn't changed a whole heap since his orignal inception, I've since given him a storm bolter (as the next few tournaments I'm using the AC in they'll be running as Blood Angles for a variety of reasons) as well as one of those cool power swords from Sevrin Loth's bodyguard unit. He is obviously rocking the Chapter Banner 'Furor Astra'. Still looking for ideas on painting is up or designs, so please hit me up if you have any decent ideas!
Next up we have the vet sarge of the Nemean Eternals, Ancient Iddin-Sin. Yes Ancient is a rank for standard bearers, but part of the still nascent fluff for the Nemean's is they all must be old and have served as an ancient for 50(or insert x legnth of time that maybe ties into the founding millinea of the chapter or something) years, once done, they are offered to join the Nemeans or continue as an ancient. I wanted him to be quite 'generic assault sarge' but then tart him up a little with a good whack of lion iconography.
Next is Ancient Aguha, the Tabar. He is sort of meant to be a consummate warrior, with sword, axe etc.. pretty generic fluff wise..think lucius the eternal.. He is rocking a few daggers, also wanted to have his armour look a little more ornate hence the EC shoulder pad usage, as well as the change up of the hammer's head and shoulder-light sensor thing. I feel by lending them selves out also to slightly chaos archetypes leaves a heap of fun room to possibly to a Red Corsairs army, but with characters from before the fall. I could really image Huron having a body guard of terminators encapsulating each chaos god.. sort of showing he is favoured by all, peon of none...
Final Thunder Hammer termy is Ancient Yazkur-el. I imagine him as being a bit of a ball breaker.. a color sergent Kell sort of dude, exhorting those around him to do the will of the Tyrant etc, hence I've given him a little speaker on his cowling. I see him as being Huron's envoy when he needs to just head-butt some one into following orders where as Aguha would be a little more subtle and insidious.
