I can help on the Marines on the base bit. Buy a box of 3 marines for £6 at your local store.Model them on your base as you would like but leave couple of limbs off and stick them somewhere else on the base. to make the limbs seem mangled at the jounts attack the thing with a knife and use green stuff to create pools of blood and broken bones etc:x
.To make the marines really chewed up, straighten out a paperclip and heat the end til it glows in a gas flame. Then stab the marines in acouple of places to make them look like they have bulletholes that have penetrated the armour.the plastic oozes a little so it will look like guts coming out of the armour(use green stuff for extra gore).
The marines should be painted like the terrain on the base, i.e there should be mud all over there legs or their armour ,if on a grass terrain or something like grass. Make them look really worn out and battered in otther words. It also might be an idea to half bury the models in green stuff to make them look like theyre dead, not just sunbathing:) .

hope this helps,any questions just ask.

If it is the Model I'm thinking of; the multimelta powerfist guy, he has a cloak that makes it hard to give him wings and make it look beliviable. I would recommend you to use another model as a base for this project.

i found that the plastic CSM's are great for conversions and I think you could do well with one of them instead. The wings and sword will make him stand out enough compared to your basic trooper.
Finally, the combimelta is quite a lousy weapon on a Lord. Better just give him meltabombs and a Boltpistol. He belongs in CC.

I totally agree. CC is the only place for a lord IMO.

You would just need to put a backpack on him, and chop off the little things on the sides... they are like jet boosters or something like that. And replace them with wings... or at least, thats what I would do.

And I agree, CC All the way. And make the wings all damaged so you can use the Daemonic Speed rule... its way better for CC lords.
