Not where I should be

Agree the heft looks spot on at present.

Excellent work on the tabard.

Cheers Cam, I think the tabard could be a bit sharper, especially on the part that sags towards the top near the 'belt buckle'.

Sorry youwashock, I completely forgot about your question regarding paint! The plan was white armour with red and black markings (pretty much White Scar colours to be fair). Hoping that the additional details such as feathers etc will set him apart from the sons of the Khan!

I'm in need of a bit of inspiration on what else I can do to modify this dude to fit the theme I have chosen... A friend of mine suggested that I make a dream catcher Iron Halo which is a pretty cool idea given that they were intended to protect against evil spirits and what-not. Getting the aesthetic right will prove tricky though...

I've also been sculpting some feathers to adorn the tomahawk and for a cord around his gorget.

Any other suggestions? Don't want to go bonkers...

Bear claw necklace? Any sort of animal totem items, really. Bones, claws, icons.

Decided to stick a feather on the haft of the hawk. Looks alright in place. Just needs to have the binding sculpted over and it'll be alright.



Next up is to sculpt a tooth/claw necklace as youwashock suggested.

Looking forward to seeing this complete, it's a really unique aesthetic to go for on Marines (especially since Deathwing abandoned it) and the conversion/sculpting is looking great so far.

Thanks Paradigm. It certainly is an unusual aesthetic, just hope I can do it justice!

I decided against any additional gubbinz and to let the paint job do the talking. However, I've managed to lose the plunger spring in my airbrush while cleaning it so I'll have to wait until the new one I ordered is delivered :(
