White Scars Champion Painted!!!

     I had a little time over the break.  Between family and parties and friends and a sick wife and getting my face drilled at the dentist, I managed to finish the champion for my command squad.

     Pretty basic conversion using standard biker legs and the bits from the command squad for the top half.  I did have to chop off the bottom of the torso that hangs below the belt so he could fit.  Now the little shrine belt buckle thingy sits right on top of the gas tank.  Other bits I used were from the old metal Scout Bikers including the Shotgun in a holster on the front wheel and the gear on top of the rear wheel.

     The fairing in front of the handle bars is from the White Scars Commander bike, and the Plasma Talons are the actual bits from a Dark Angels Ravenwing Command Squad.  (I showed how I modified them to fit on a standard bike fairing in an earlier post.)  I also have been mounting the antenna/skull thing on the right side of the seat instead of behind it.  I like the lower profile and having it at an angle, too.

     I'm certainly hoping the rest of the squad will be easier to paint since they have fewer details.  However, I have a feeling I might need to magnetize a few arms here and there to get all the options I want.  Next up is the Standard Bearer.  I can use my custom made cloth banner with him and I hope it turns out looking as good as the rest.

     Here is my HQ for the Dark Angels list so far....

     Thanks for checking out my stuff!!!
