Counts-As Sergeant Telion

Because I just love this guy. The grizzled old war veteran who insists on teaching the youngsters. It's almost a trope. Anyways, I spent quite a bit of time cutting and filing away at the Ultramarine symbols on this guy (the right bracer and the shoulder were the most irritatingly difficult), and then used greenstuff in an amateur fashion to put my chapter badge on his left shoulder. As with all my scouts, I replaced the head with a Pig Iron helmet. Because I'm pretty sure they should go over wearing your helmet in Space Marine Basic Training.

  1. Wow, he goes from looking like a geezer with a gun to a veritable cyber baddie. Pretty cool.

  8. Love the conversion but the photo is a little blurry.
    Means I can't zoom in to see exactly how well the pewter looks on that helmet.
