Blood Angel Retro Project: Part II "Tycho Lives Again!"
You can see him in the group shot on a regular base there in the front line.
Starting with an OOP legion of the damned sergeant, I added a less flashly back pack, a Khorne Bezerker Left arm and Chain Axe and snassed up his base.
The base is from Secret Weapon at: http://www.scecretweaponminiatures.com/
I added the two rocks and the skull.
Next up is Stage2...
I started with the black armor. I am following the excellent tutorial for painting/converting Legion of the Damned marines found HERE
I am tweaking it a bit to work with the paints at hand.
I am new to tutorials, so my pics leave quite a bit to be desired. I will improve as I go along....not that my painting should ever be used as anything but a very loose/beginner tutorial.
Interestingly enough, the OOP LotD models are going for a tidy sum on ebay and fellas want to charge serious prices for retro rhinos; even those in battered/used condition.
With this in mind I might have to improvise and come up with some possible alterations to the list.
First would be to magnetize the back packs and convert jump packs...that way I can run Regular Assault Squads (RAS) in a rhino or with a jump pack. See how a simple project can grow and get away from you?
Thanks for the read,
