Default Space Marine Chaplain Athien

This model was a major pain. The mold was off by at least a mm. I had previously started painting it several years ago and decided to give it new life. I stripped it and filed down the mold lines as best I could.

He has Cypher's left arm but I replaced the plasma pistol with a combi-flamer. I added an iron halo to the jumppack. I borrowed(stole) the idea from Gareth. Thanks!

As far as the paint job goes I think it's pretty good but unfortunately the camera ruined alot of detail on the bone areas, especailly the face and crozius. It also shows too much of the shadow grey/black mix on the armor. : I'll be getting a new camera in a few weeks and hopefully I will be able to start taking better pictures.

Anyway, enough talk, here's the model.





Comments and criticism welcome.

i like it, but the poor cast does spoil it. I can see it on the crozius.

paint wise you done a good job, hes pretty neat and tidy, the deatil is in there. Nothing to really pick up on. I like the home made combi flamer, barrels need drilling out, but gret apart from that.

You'll enjoy using him in games, chaplains with jump packs leading assault marines are awesome.

I can't see nothing wrong with him, except maybe the wargear...

Decent job.

The wargear serves a purpose. Three flamers in an assault squad is awesome, which is also the bane of my roommmate's guard. >

Thanks again, Gareth, my next Marine showcase should be alot better than this one.
