    Turning Lucius the Eternal back to the Emperor

    So I've been looking for a suitable commander model for my Relictors force that could match the fluff I've been writing.
    Involving a strike force of Relictors surviving the GK assault and pushing on in their search for chaos artifacts to aide their fickle bretheren.

    During their escape from the Fortress Monastery their ship travels through a warp storm, and their Librarian Commander is forced to endure the psychic onslaught of the warp itself, and the deaths of thousands of his fellow Relictors at the hands of the misguided Grey Knights.

    As a result his face has become twisted and scared and his armor has warped to show the pain as his chapter was slaughtered by their own.

    At some point in their journey their commander and Ven dread also become infected with the obliterator virus. But a more benign version than the ones infesting CSM obliterators.

    And the Lucius the Enternal model matched this criteria perfectly!
    Though it required filling in large portions of the model with GS and sculpting heels on his feet.

    So.........

    Stilicho the Broken

    The model a good idea.

    The green stuff work on the model is a little rought, but it's hard to tell with a a grainy picture so it will probley look better once painted.

    Fluff, errr a little dodgey i think, the obliterator virus turns tech marines in into obliterators which gives them the abiltiy to grow and mutate weapons. How and why did they even catch it?

    That model looks interesting. I like how you have put all those parts together. The fluff helps out too. I'm not sure if it is a virus or just what happens to a Techmarine in the eye of terror that explains the Obliterators. Though I think to claim it is a virus is good enough to satify most. Apparently nobody is sure what they are or what's wrong with them. The look of this model is cool though and you must show us pics of him when he is painted.

    Yeah the greenstuff work is a little rough, but practise makes perfect right?

    The fluff regarding the obliterator virus came from an old WD (not sure of the #) short story about the Relictors encountering it on a space hulk during their penitance crusade.

    While the one in the story is survivable, the marines were not able to control it, nor rejoin their ranks.

    My idea was to have the fluff indicate that the version this force was infected with became less virulent, or had mutated so it did not provide all the benefits of growing guns out of ones arms.
    Just that it melded the armor and weapons with the body.

    I'm also painting the Ven dread with a similar infection.

    Finally got Lucius 80% painted, just dry brushed so hes playable.





    Still cant quite figure out how to do the melded flesh pieces (sword arm and armor)
    If youve played dead space, thats the look im going for.......but have failed so far.

    The paint job you have done is him is good. I think it brings out his details very well. Reppy for you. I haven't played dead space but I think the best way is to do a Google search for it and find as many examples of what you want. With more material to work with picking the right colours will be easier.

    Cheers guys!

    I just cant seemt to get the hand of the layering method.
    Ive always gotten away with dryburshing and watered down inking.

    But its going to be necessary if I want to give the motled flesh look for the sword arm, and tentacles
