Default THE EMPEROR!

Ok now that I have your attention you can give me a hand. I want to craft the Emperor for a small diorama and a cool attatchment to my Dark Angel army just for fun. Now this is going to be pregolden throne and pre Horous, so the Emporer (may he live forever) can hold his own in a war. So I need some ideas. What should I use as a bace model? A Terminatior lord? Perhaps an Inquisior OoOo big fancey cape. And what weapons would the Emporer use.. a Power Weapon of course. Anyway toss out some ideas.

There is a diaroma in the front of the Space Marine Codex with the Emperor in (the one where he's fighting Horus). In that he had a powerfist and power sword in terminator armour.

Don't forgot to give him some of his bodyguard (usually Terminators in white armour).

The flaming sword, teminator armor (converted to look nice of course), just look at the diorama by Mike Mcvey (I think) on the SM Codex.

NOOOOOO! Ah crud... I hate that diorama.... I hate the way the Emporer looks... He looks like a panzy. I dunno why but he looks too feminin. Maybe its the white armour. But its prolly his long black hair. Its not the emporer I invisioned. Anyway terminator armour is a must.. Sword covered in runes yes. so I'll see... P.S way to be creative guys :P

Why didn't you say that you hated the way the Emperor looks in that scene?

Anyway, how about basing it on Grey Knight Terminator? perhaps slightly bulkier and certainly more ornate (runes, scripts and scrolls on his armour etc)

Why don't you do a sketch of what you were thinking so we can get an idea of what pose your thinking.
