Relictors Marneus Calgar - Marneus Relicgar

Happy New Year all, thought I'd start the year with a long overdue miniature which I've had as a WIP for sometime. Nothing like a factory line of 4 drop pods to get you distracted by something less boring... may I present you all - Marneus Relicgar, God Of War, Eternal Warrior and a whole big can of whoop-ass.


I converted the Mareus Calgar model slightly to undo all the Ultramarine goodies, skulls were added to the leather straps hanging from the waist, a big 'U' shield was substituted for a spare Skull and Crossbones one on his right pauldron, the Ultramarine symbol on his right gauntlet was filed off and a terminator crux added instead. The 'U' inside the Iron Halo was substituted for a grimacing skull. Only the belt buckle remained,but I just painted the surround gold as well to mask the upper edge. I used a spare MKIII helmet to further differ him from normal Marneus' minis. I think it works well in Grey. The green power cables and the bone colour weapons echo those throughout the rest of my force. Finally a nice purple leaf pattern was added to the edge of the cloak to add some interest. Hope you like.

  7. re-directed from From The Warp, i somehow missed this popping up on my blog-roll. what a difference a simple head-swap can make, he looks infinitely better now (and makes a lot more sense, i hate space marines with their helmets off!)

    great paint job too.

  8. Cheers All, He's doing well so far in his battles - it's the Iron Armour helmet, not my generalship!
