Blood Angels Knights of the Blood Commander/Librarian

Blood Angels Knights of the Blood Commander/Librarian

Well it’s been a while since I’ve had the chance to post, let alone paint something. But with that being said I did manage to finish the Librarian/Commander I’ve had on my painting desk for some time.

Well almost completed as I still have to finish the Familiar that goes with the Librarian since I have it magnetized to connect to the base.

For the commander side I used the Chaos helmet and just cut off the longer bits so it was the helm on it’s own and I think it looks a lot better. On the armour I did take off most of the Chaos symbols but I left the odd one which fits in with the theme of the Chapter slowly turning to Chaos.

But I’ll give you the photos here. Remember to click on the images for larger pictures.

From there I have a magnetized Arm and Head so I can switch it out for the different Characters. Don’t ask me why I did it I just had an idea that I wanted to do something like that.

So the Librarian has a Dark Angel hooded head (can you say Psychic Hood?) and I wanted to use the Chaos Force Staff but with the colours matching in with the Chapter and to keep it with a touch of chaos but not overly stated.

And again click on the images for larger versions:

So let me known what you think in the comments and if your wondering where I got the small modifications from check the previous post which had it all listed.

Next it’s on the Malifaux!

    I like it. I like how you get your reds, while dark, still pop out. I’m also a fan of the hooded head: that’s how I designate all the sergeants in my Deathwing units. 🙂

    Two points of (hopefully) constructive criticism:

    * I’d do the fur and the cape different colors. They sort of run together the way they are.

    * I feel like it needs a more pronounced spot color. That might be because of the lighting (the blue wires are shadowed in the photo). I dunno. It’s also a lot easier said than done, because I really can’t spy anything that wants to be made to pop more. Does that make any sense?

    I see what you mean with the Cape. I’m thinking now of changing the fur on it to break up the difference from Brown to red. Also that will be easier to change that the cloth heh…

    I still have to make some sort of photo box as my lighting really does suck. That should bring the blues out more. I didn’t highlight the blue that bright as well which can be part of the issue there as well.

    Thanks for the feedback!
