Today was a fairly quiet day for me, nothing desperately needing to be done.
So I decided to pull out my bitz box(es) and start assembling something.
Some of the bitz are old, some pretty new, but they all add up to an Assault Chaplain.
He might not be as refined as a GW molding, but it's got plenty more character.
He's armed with a custom built Crozius, custom Mastercrafted Plasma Pistol (I'd seen it done like the online somewhere and thought it looked good), Frag/Krak, Purity Seals, Termie Honors and of course the Rosarius.
He's obviously not exactly finished, there's still a little tidying up needed to be done, and a couple of minor details to be added (then there's still the painting), but he's as close to it as I could manage in one day's work.

Man thats one sweet Chaplain, I love the head and kneepads great work man. Only thing that lets it down is that ugly ruin bit on his base. Those things are horrible! I think you should make one yourself. Otherwise, I worship you!

Very well done. His stance is very natural. Nice work on the m.c. plasma pistol. I'm looking forward to the paint job.

Nice work on the minature. The base doesn't do it for me, how about some more natural looking rock outcrop. It's the skull that spoils it for me...

Beautiful work, but may I make a suggestion?
Do something with the top of his 'hair', it really needs some texture to it, just run a scalpel across it a few times, or put a thin strip of GS down it and prick it with a pin all over, it'll really bring it out
Great work mate :yes:

Those kneecaps are sweet- what bit was that? I think I'm going to add it to my Lord...
Hey, a batwing skull would look good on a Night Lord as well... No! Cannot start new army! No!
I like the model dude- I had a similar idea for a Chaplain in plastic, and I may yet follow through.
Thanks for the praise and tips (and criticism) guys.
I'm glad you like the effort I put in.
I spose I should answer/respond to a couple of queries/comments.
First up, the base. I'm not sure exactly what the issue is with it (I like it - kinda CoD-ish), is it the fact that it's an actual GW "terrain" piece from (I think) the 3rd Ed box? or something else?
When it comes down to it, I have next to nothing when it comes to basing materials, and so when I saw this sitting there in with the bitz, all I saw was extra height and pose. I don't think I'd be able to sculpt a scenic "pile of rocks" even if I had the stuff to do it from.
Minus_t, thanks for those tips, will definatly be using both on it - how? easy, GS a top layer on it, score some "sections" and then poke it to hell (probably using a suede brush to save time), of course if it doesn't work out, it's only GS :tongue:
And finally, the head and kneecaps. The head is just a standard marine helmet that's been defaced :tongue: and the skull came from the Empire Handgunner's sprue, cut in half-ish of course.
The kneecaps I'm kinda proud of. The IG tank accessories sprue has a couple of winged skull pieces, supposedly to be used for the tank, but I trimmed the wings off two of them, stuck the skulls on the kneecaps and then stuck the outside wings on; the other two are on the Jump Pack
(if you're wanting a Night Lord head, try a 'nid ripper head, and a couple of wings attached to that, looks like a nasty fish head )
I'm still thinking that there's something that I could possibly add to it before I ruin it with paint, but I'm not sure. Any ideas?

Spikes, chains, and more seals would be pretty Chaplain-y, but other than that I can't help you. It's masterful, and I know the feeling you're having- do I have to paint it? I had a nice Officer that, thanks to my bad spraying as well as it being industrial-grade paint, made his six-pack into a beer gut. No fun.
