It's been far too long since I've posted on this blog, but alas I'll get going again (if there is anyone out there listening haha).
Either way the other day I was helping a mate out who is starting a Dark Angel army, we stumbled upon the gold of putting Azrael in with a large blob of guard, which gives the entire squad a 4+ invuln, at starters that isn't great, but when you run a 50 man blob and you only have half of the wounded ones die isntead of all of them, its pretty sweet.
So being the cheese hound that I am I started to create a similar list to that, in true Tyrant's legion theme.
Anyway make a long story short, this allowed me to start making Arch-Centurion Tamerlaine to be used in place of Azrael.
So to start this tale, I had a quasi-spare Angron floating about (his nose was smashed off in transit so got a free good one sent out). Now some of you will be screaming NOOOO, and I can concur with you there, but at the same time, I think the model is moving along quite nicely..
Here is a picture of him next to an Auxilia Prefect.As you can see he does indeed tower above the little guardsman, and will be a little bit taller than the truescale marines, which in all honesty I don't mind, being a ~200pt model in the middle of another 50 models I'm happy with him standing out, and we all know, the cooler a marine is, the bigger he is
This is where he stands at now.
I've added a combi-plasma hanging from a strap (Which I shamelessly stole the idea from this beautiful man: Sheep's Az). I think it really lends itself to the flowing motion of the cape. The banner (also from Lugft) got some boiling water love to get it moving in a proper direction. I added some GS purity seals to cover up lazy-ness on my behalf.
I think he is about ready for painting, I've just got no idea on what scheme to do the bastard. His cloak will be coloured in a tiger pattern (Fluff: Got it from a Tiger Claws captain for saving him or some such blah blah) so that will be fun/interesting to work out. Silver is the logical choice, but the question is how much trim gets done in gold etc...
Anyway, thanks for having a squiz.
