Some of you may remember a few weeks back when I mentioned I was offering up conversion and painting of a Space Marine character for each of the armies being auctioned of by Deepstrike Radio for the Queensland Flood Relief Appeal (see post here).
Well, after the two auctions finished, Chris contacted me and let me know the winners wanted a Librarian and a Chaplain respectively.
This guy's a Librarian for the Blood Ravens Chapter. Inspired a bit by Thomas Schadle's excellent model that won a Slayer Sword in LA back in 2005, I also took the opportunity to try out the Instant Mold material that I picked up last month. When I put up painted pictures you'll be able to see the nice horned skull and scroll molded from another Librarian's shoulder pad.
And this guy will be a Raptors Chaplain. Since the release of the plastic Chaos Knights a few years ago, I've wanted to use the cool skull shoulder plates on a Chaplain model. This was the perfect opportunity. This model is really just a kitbash, but it involves parts from 9 or 10 different kits. Sometimes it's good to have an extensive 'bitz box'.
The bases for these two models are from Dragon Forge Design's Lost Empires range.
Finally, here's an update of where my Greatsword unit is at. Just the Champion and Standard Bearer to add to the big base, then eight more models to finish off the unit. I hope you like where it's heading.
I'm off to Cold Wars tomorrow for work so I don't think I'll get much hobbying in over the weekend. Hopefully I'll be able to scrounge up enough for a post or two next week.
