Knights of the Blood – Librarian Almost Completed

Knights of the Blood – Librarian Almost Completed

As I’m looking for different options for my Knights of the Blood army I wanted to make a a Librarian for a HQ slot. As with some of the other elites and my plans for a Captain the Librarian is also going to have the Possessed wings. My reasoning for the fluff of the army is since he has close access to the warp there are going to be a closer relationship to the forces of Chaos.

As Ive never been a fan of Blue Librarians since I feel that they loose their connection with the army feel, I chose to do him in the Army Colours but with that being said he does have Blue on one shoulder pad and also on his knee pads.

For the conversion I used Sanguiary Guard legs, His Torso was a spare one from the Assault Marines boxed Set and his head and the blue shoulder pad (with the parchment) was from the Death Company Boxed Set.

With that being said I’ll start off with the photos:

As you can see I’ve added a cobbled together Storm Bolter for him by using 2 bolt pistols glued together which I think came out really well. Also with the Base I’ve just used a default GW base and I used my handy Hobby Knife to cut down and take off the rough edge so I could add the warning stripe.

Once I get more Wings I’ll do an update with him which should be some time next week.

Let me know what you think in the comments

    I love your stuff…..just a couple questions. What color do you base coat them – black or white? Do you do the grey over the whole model and then go back with the red? What color’s make up the grey?
    thanks,
    Rick

    I’m of the old school that still undercoats white. I find that it brings out a brighter colour when I’m painting the Reds, Grey’s and Greens.

    Then I would paint the Red followed by Grey and lastly the bone colours. After that is done I would put on a Black wash over the hole figure and then go back to highlight it and do any detail work.

    The Grey I use is a Ral Patha colour I’ve had for over 10 years called Dark Grey. As it’s been watered down over the years it’s getting to the point of a cross between a wash and a paint but the Black Wash on top of it gives it the fullness it was lacking.
