I created this model as a mock up for a space marine legion. I love the champion of the legion command set. The mis matched armour fit perfectly into my image of a Blood Angel Force squaring down the Traitors at the siege of Terra. 

Although some won't see this as the redoubtable Flesh Tearer (I understand when people read the novels they form a distinctive image in their mind of what the character shall be and any other rendition is dismissed out of hand) I created this model with him in mind. Perhaps it would be fairer to say that this model is inspired by Amit. 

As with all the models to date there are no unit identification markings or legion symbols. I'm waiting for Forge World to release a decal set to ensure a constant result across my collection. I can also add a bit more weathering a chipping techniques to make the armour more battle worn. 

Oh and the sword is from Maximini I believe. I bought it so long ago I can't remember where exactly it came from. He has a touch of Final Fantasy triumphalism about him.

  2. I'm also able to combine even more enduring an important chipping solutions to try to make that shield alot more showdown distressed.
