Well, for my pure GK army, I recently bought a 3 man retinue for my Grand Master. Now that he has a personal group of meat shields, I want to make these terminators a bit different from the rest of the army to show their "elite of the elite" status, despite the statlines and other things being exactly the same. I plan on embellishments of other kinds, but the main idea is a banner-bearing Termi with the Grandmaster's (as-of-yet not-created) personal heraldry.
I have no read any of the books on the GK yet. Is such a conversion within GK fluff? I know how to make the banner and banner pole, and plan on using skulls (like the skulls on the nemesis sword hilts) and an imperial aquila for pole ends, and I'll be using a Greenstuff'd banner.
EDIT: Oh, and besides wings on the helm and joints, what would be other good ways to greenstuff embellishment and distinquishment on these baroque elites?
I'm going to stay away from books, but I do like the candle racks idea. I'm thinking that that'll be from witchhunter sprues?Originally Posted by XenomarinesKiller
The capes and sashes are both finished and the banner pole's largely done (awaiting aquila and skulls). I got pics of these from my personal workbench (AKA computer desk by the kitchen)
Keep in mind, this is the first time I've ever attempted to do anything more than fill a gap with greenstuff. I'm pretty happy with how most of it turned out though, but I'm not that happy with the lopsidedness of the banner pole. I like how these guys turned out overall though.

Yes, I know Zerachiel's paintjob sucks. I'm gonna strip him and redo him sometime.
Okay, I'm gonna prime the models up tonight and add on further embellishments later on. At the moment, I think things like candles and wings will be too tough for me to do well with (considering my trouble with the capes) and I want to use these guys as soon as possible in my local GW store.
Also, Jeviah had his original banner pole stripped off and I stole one from a Terminator Librarian.

I like how the banner turned out.
I'll practice with the GS and add on wings and candles to the honor guard later.
