Default My Lemartes Conversion!

I'm planning to do a converted Lemartes because I'm re-doing my death company in dynamic poses so thought it fit to make my own one (but I still think the old was is cool just a bit 2D.) This is a ruff sketch of what I want him to look like and the first of my new deathcomp. Any thoughts and oppinions are welcome?

Maybe you could unbase the regular Lemartes and saw his left leg to put it more dynamically.
Now if you feel like starting a complete model, why not ?

Blood Angels since 1993, what else ?

I'd say converting the current chaplain with jump pack would be a good place to start, it already has a pose and appearance very close to the sketch you did .

I would have no problems with that either and it is looking good so far.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

looking great. Can't wait to see the painted product.


Violence is never the answer, it is the question, to which the answer is, yes
