Hey everybody,
I said I would - and I did it!

After seeing the new cover art for Hell's Angels by Neil Robert's I had the urge to turn back to my Emperor's Children and give them some more love (cause that's what they really want tongue.gif ).

I decided to start with a new model for Fulgrim - bigger, more imposing - basically speaking, more epic.

So, without further ado, here we go with the pictures.


So, this is him, based upon the Kabuki version. It is pretty obvious which parts are still WIP - the hair, legs and arms need loads more work:

The sword is made of plasticard, a GK Terminator sword and some High Elf bits for the cross-guard.

And finally, his cloak, which was made from tissue paper, wood glue and Purity Seal:

And, in all his glory:

Hope you like him, I'll post more pics when I get more modelling done smile.gif

So long,
BCB cool.gif

Flippin' 'eck!!! blink.gif

Wow. That's fantastic!

That shoulder wing is rivalling John Blanche in terms of epic excessiveness! (in a good way!) smile.gif

My only tiny concern is the feet - it kinda looks like he's wearing hoof-clogs! Maybe make the toecaps a bit smaller and more refined-looking?

Other than that, the sculpting is amazing!

Where did you get the shoulder wing eagle head?



+Edit+

SHOULDER-WING!!!!!!! biggrin.gif

Haha, thanks mate and thanks to Pacific also, that was the look I wanted to achieve smile.gif

Yeah, I'm not 100% happy with that too, you're idea sounds like the way to go, thank you wink.gif

The eagle head is in fact a griffin head from a griffin statue from the Warhammer Fantasy Buildings Sets, as is the "eagle" head on his chest.

After reading all of these comments I am so annoyed about the stupid Block on Photobucket they have on the internet here in the Camp in PNG.
Not to mention some of the other gaming sites I normally check out, being blocked! dry.gif

I guess I'll just have to wait until I get back to Australia on the 17th of May, to see the shots....grrr!

If it were a country wide block, I'd have no problems find a way around it.
But because it is a company based block, the guys I know to get around it, are the guys who put it in place..... rolleyes.gif

Did some more sculpting today, I assume it'll only take one or two more days now to have him done:

And his dirty dirty flipside (lots of clean up work and sculpting still to be done tongue.gif ):

I also ripped an Apothecary apart that I built for my Alpha Legion project but never used, and turned it into the first member of my 2.0 Phoenix Guard - Fabius Bile, Pre Heresy of course:

He actually has shoulder length hair, but it is combed (?) back, you can see little spots of green stuff by his neck wink.gif Guess it becomes clearer from another perspective / when painted.

So, did some more work and came up with this:

A few days ago I finished "The reflection crack'd", as any EC fanboy should, and I loved the part of Fulgrim throwing lightning at his enemies without being a warp-twisted maniac.

So I changed his hands up a bit and swapped the sword to his left hand. I really think it looks better this way. I also added the leather straps to his right shoulder.

You work like a maniac with this stuff you know that? biggrin.gif
Fulgrim looks fantastic so far. Very much like the illustrations, and with just a bit too much bling. smile.gif
I see Fabius is sporting Terminator legs, does this mean you will do a batch of bigger marines?

Really nice paint effects on Fabius BCB.
I can't tell if they are metallics or NMM!

Waiting with baited breath to see what the finished article looks like!

You were quite right there Mara, here's the updated Phoenixguard (still WIP I admit):



After Brother Thestis was killed by the Laer and his banner burnt, Deimos (Paladin w/ Brotherhood Banner) is now carrying the new Legion banner into battle.

user posted image


Hyron (Paladin w/ master-crafted Demonhammer) prefers the swing of a hammer to his halberd. His banner celebrates the Legion's moment of birth.

user posted image

Klestus (Paladin w/ master-crafted Psycannon & Halberd) is a comparatively young warrior, but he earned a lot of praise in the Legion's havoc-companies. That is why, alongside his halberd, he was given one of the new, more esotheric weapons of the Emperor's Children.

user posted image

Of Demeter (Paladin w/ master-crafted Halberd) it is said that is very stoic at times, but on his way to perfection nobody can stop him. His banner displays the Imperial Aquila and he is carrying the Phoenixguard's most deadly weapon: The Golden Halberd.

user posted image

Hephaist (Paladin w/ Demonhammer) also is just as deadly with the hammer as with every sword and his wrath is feared among foe and friend. He carries the Fire of the Phoenix in a golden bowl with him, to bring illumination to his enemies.

user posted image

At first Theon (Paladin w/ Incinerator & Halberd) was skeptical towards the changes within the Legion, but when he got his own implants that transformed a warrior's cries into a sensational cacophony of death, he bowed to the blessing of the Phoenician's wisdom.

user posted image

Following the events in the Maraviglia, Laikon (Paladin w/ master-crafted Psycannon & Force Sword) was one of the first to get his hands on the new sonic weapons. Enraptured, he never wanted to use anything else into battle.

user posted image

Apholl (Paladin w/ Psycannon & Halberd) is bringing the heavy support to the cadre of the Phoenixguard and his weapon is able to equally tear infantry and tanks to shreds. Simurgh was constructed by Apholl himself, and rarely he unsheathes his halberd if he can cling on to Simurgh's trigger.

user posted image

Fabius (Paladin-Apothecary w/ Force Sword) is not technically a member of the Phoenixguard, but his determination and skill in battle was lauded time and time again by the Primarch. His anxious experiments will take the Emperor's Children to new heights of perfection.

user posted image

Captain Lucius (Paladin w/ Force Sword) is as perfect a swordsman as there can be, and it is said that noone can best him. He is grasping for new sensations every moment of his life, and these troublesome days he is often found fighting alongside his Primarch, to learn everything the Phoenician could teach him.



And finally, a family portrait:
