Well, digging through my bitz box, I was reading an old copy of White Dwarf, the one with the Dark Angels in it? And so, I got caught up in it and made my own Fallen model. He's technically a Captain when I play him on the tabletop. Unofficially he's a mercenary.

Here's the pics.

This is a good one of his base's label. Took me a while to find the detail brush.


Slightly different angle, better view of his face.


A side view, you can see his Auspex on the belt.


Back view, complete with a shield, pistol, and gear.


Good one of the cloak he's wearing.

I used the kneeling legs from the Command Spure, and a head, torso, shoulder pads, and bolter form the Tac Squad. The "silencer" on his bolter is the muzzle of a meltagun, and he has misc junk from the Tac squad and Command squad frames. He also has a shield from the new Giant I got for my Bad Moonz army.

He's nowhere NEAR that shiny in real life.

It may be hard to see but he is considerably grubbier as well. 10,000 years of rust and war don't make good armor.


Cheers!

I agree the Silencer is a bit big but otherwise the model looks good.

I really love the cape and pose, makes it look as if he is scoping somebody out on the battlefeild. I'm assuming that the purity seal is actully a impurity seal? :wink:

One thing to be careful of in the future though is the spill, I notice in a couple of places the red has gone into the green and although its pain to have to touch up it can really make the differance between a ok painted model and a solid paint job.

Yesh, I noticed that too. I replaced the silencer wth a bit from the new Ravenwing spure and touched up the green in some areas. Thanks for the imput!

And Yes, the "impurity seals" are some kind of trophy I think. I put it there to fill a gap in between the kneeling legs.

I'll post a pic of the new silencer soon.

Alright everyone...new pics are here!


Yes, the new silencer is better. Plus it actually looks like a sniper rifle!


Another view...I'm going to finish painting him today. Hopefully get in a game this week as his first battle.

I thought about using an extra sniper, but thought it was too weedy for a SM bolter-sniper thing. I used the Ravenwing Landspeeder's sensor array on the front and cut a piece off.

Yeah that new silencer is far better and the model looks cool overall. Nice job.

Yea that looks a lot better, I love it when people convert up bolter variants especially stalker silenced shells and the M40 Targeter system. I'm sorry I just realy wanted to name the thing :D

They're good upgrades....but sadly, only the Deathwatch and some other specialized units can use them.

Although the M40 does come in the SM Tac squad. It looks cool on the bolters.

Actually, a bolter is not a grenade launcher. It's a semi-to-fully automatic self-propelled ammunition launcher.

So yes, it can be silenced. Have you not heard of the Stalker Silenced Rounds? Sniper.

Because his broke after 2000 years of using it, so he swiped some random Chosen's. :D

Plus, he is a Fallen, so he is technically a traitor already!
