Default Lieutenant Malek:

The following are pictures of my second-second in command, Lieutenant Malek. He is weilding a custom pair of lightning claws, and keeps the skull of the first to fall victim to them chained swinging behind him. The lightning claws were made as a substitute for the fact that I did not have a real pair of them at the time. They are constructed of part of a sword hilt and guard, Cadian bayonets, and Tau bits for detail. The skull was mainly to help emphasize his charging motion, as he is supposed to have daemonic speed as well. Enjoy!:







C&C are welcome.

The claws are awesome I think. They look kind of like "energy swords" in Halo- except lightning claw style. And I dig the painting on them too. I only hope I can paint my chaos leaders 1/2 as well as you can... beautiful work.

Thanks for the compliments.

Yeah, the claws are unfortunately a little awkward. I would have prefered the blades to have extended directly from his knukles, however I had no blades delicate enough to do so.

The pose and claws are cool as well as the shoulder pads.

Thanks, the pose really in an ode to Wolverine, who is a suitable role-model model, if you think very little about.

The skull on his left shoulder pad comes in bulk with the Berserker boxed set. The green icon on his right shoulder was painted by me.
