|Praetor Marius Gage|
Because I wanted this model to represent Marius Gage, the Chapter master of the First Chapter I used the eagled cloak from the Banner bearer instead of the power sword arm - which was a little warped :/ I think this gives him a more regal presence befitting the second in command of the Ultramarines. The model has a sense of a king surveying his kingdom and so I placed him atop a foam hill from an old (old, old, old) scenery set. I have plans to blend the capes together with some green stuff and give him a thunder hammer slung over his shoulder.
|Tactical Squad Sergeant|
I haven't had a chance to go through the Betrayal codex in any great detail yet but from what I've seen so far it is a simply stunning piece of work. It's beautifully detailed, smartly written and really (and I mean really) well put together. I'm actually gutted I couldn't pick up a copy at Gamesday and get it signed but maybe the authors will be there in 2013.
Tomorrow I might tackle either the contemptor dreadnaught Telemechrus or the assault squad. Alternatively I might sack that off and just play Halo 4 all night!
It's a win-win situation!
