The Emperor’s Angels – Part 10

My space marines haven’t been entirely abandoned since their first appearance back in June. Admittedly they haven’t been my first priority recently either but now a couple more battle brothers have managed to sneak across the painting desk to completion.

Space Marine Convert Or Die Wudugast (10)

This one was almost finished alongside the others in June but didn’t make it whilst I swithered to a complete stall over the, fairly minor in the grand scheme of things, question of what colour to paint his hair. In the end however is unfinished state annoyed me enough to make me get on with it and so he’s able to join his brothers at last.

His squad mate on the other hand I kitbashed just a few days ago and was sufficiently pleased with that I got him painted up in no time flat.

It’ll take more than these two to hold vack the enemies of the Imperium however so I’ve also been busy kitbashing some more champions and heroes for the nascent chapter. They’re not quite ready to show off yet but I’ll try to get something done this week.

    They are spot on mate, I love the colour scheme you went with for your chapter, and these two show it off beautifully – bravo!

  • davekay

    That’s great work, the colour scheme really works, especially on those bigger primaris models

    • Wudugast

      Cheers! It’s other reason why I love the Primaris models, as well as looking much more imposing than the old space marines they give you a much bigger canvas to play with when it comes to painting.

    Red and metalic looks great mate, well done job!

  • Azazel

    Very nice work here, mate. What did you use for the head on the second model?

    • Wudugast

      Thank you 🙂 It’s the head from one of the Interceptors (the flying Primaris).

    • James

      Probably not going to get a response here BUT which head bit is that from? I’ve looked at Inceptor heads but none have the complete ‘rebreather’ face look []. Any ideas? May be they changed the sculpt for later releases?

      • Wudugast

        Don’t worry – I always try to answer comments, although this time I don’t think I’m going to be much help. I’ve looked through all the bits on the site you linked to (and a couple of other bits sites in the UK that I use) and none of them seem to match. However, I’ve been thinking about it and I’m pretty certain that this head came from the 8th Edition Starter Set (Dark Imperium). I never looked that closely at the Inceptors kit that was released separately and always assumed that it was just a recut version of the starter set models, however looking at them now it’s clear that they got a full kit of their own. Not sure how easy it is to track down the Dark Imperium models now – they were starter set kits so should be fairly easily available but on the other hand they’re OOP now so maybe not. Hope that helps and good luck with whatever conversion you have planned!

    Haha, funny how such a trivial thing, like hair, or some other small bit of a model can cause an outright stall. Sometimes on the whole project. I’ll have to keep that in mind when tackling something next.

    Well done sir. I really like the colour scheme especially the fact you didn’t do the shoulder pads red as well. Really well executed mate

Speak, damn you!
