Everybody loves a ‘pretty boy’….(Brother Handro: apparently! It’s not something we’ve dealt with often….) and in 30k there’s only one true choice…
(Brother Handro: *cough* Sanguinius *cough*)
This beautiful model was released long ago, but I’ve simply not got around to buying him (Brother Handro: *looks around in disbelief surrounded by resin*). Finally, the wonderland/perpetual hell* that is the Heresy Trading Facebook group gave results in the form of an abandoned, part converted, Fulgrim.
The cloak sculpt is a thing of beauty, and the feathers are pretty tasty too!
Fulgrim, in game, can be run wielding either The Blade of the Laer or Ferrus Manus’ creation, Fireblade. The model only comes with The Blade of the Laer, which is beautiful in its own way, but in game terms Fireblade nearly always wins.
Blade of the Laer: Strength User, AP 2, Rending, specialist weapon, two handed
Fireblade: Strength +1, AP 2, Murderous strike (5+), specialist weapon, master-crafted
With the model only having the Laer blade, things went to Heresy Trading pretty quickly, with this as the result!
The G-Dubs mainstream Rowboat Girlyman has a lovely sword which is quite large, and certainly larger then the Laer blade from Forge World, but works well as an alternative.
The plan is to magnetise the swords, extract the fallen banner from the base to be carried by Phoenix terminators/Command squad, and to finish the sculpting on the cloak in the next few months…
…Painting however will take longer. Miles of Lil Legend Painting Studios has a fantastic series via his Patreon covering some techniques…guess I should get started!
What do people think? Does the larger sword look too big?
