Right now, I've finished assembling a captais, a colour sergeant and an apothecary. When I say "finished" I mean I have been adding little bits to them for several weeks. I'm great at starting projects and never finishing them, and I have to push myself to actually get something done. I think it might be a fear of messing up, something I still struggle with.
As you might have guessed, I like adding as much to my characters as possible.
His left shoulder guard was taken from the Furioso Dreadnought kit. Note the cable noose that marks him as Gallows-lord and captain of his Master's executioners. Thollr, the company's name is taken from the world-tree of Norse mythology, and the word is also used for "gallows".
The weapon is not a sniper rifle, it is a combi-grav with an extended barrel. I'm going through a long barrels phase after watching Hellsing.
The colour sergeant was great fun, even if the pose was a challenge. Using vanguard veteran legs, I had him stand on top of a plaguebearer's head instead of running. Observe the liquid greenstuff on his arm. I wondered what would happen if you decapitated a plaguebearer with a power sword; not very pretty...
|I tried to make it look like it was bursting into ethereal flame.|
If you'll look carefully, you will see that his left arm is actually 1st edition, making him that extra bit special. Any piece of kit from that time is a revered relic in my eyes.
And this is my apothecary. Please don't tell me off for giving him a thunder hammer; the codex does say you can give any veteran one...
Inspiration for the bolt pistol was again from Hellsing, in particular The Captain's Mauser C96, of which I am a great fan. Just the pistol, not the guy.
|Just so you know, this is the rest of 7th command.|
