Ravenwing HQ's!!!

So I received another box of Black Knights yesterday, my goal was to have these 3 bikers be converted into a HQ retinue to accompany Sammael into battle (when I get him that is).

First up is the Librarian, I used a spare Turmiel from DV and cut him at the waist and mounted him on the bike, pretty straight forward, but it works.

Next I worked on a Techmarine, I used the Chest piece that comes with all Space Marine Tanks, the head is from a Venerable Dreadnought, I then used spare servo-arms for a servo-harness and finally a Bretonian Lance for a power lance (Str 5 AP 3 on the charge), being wielded by the Ravenwing Banner arm (because it's all bionic).

Finally I decided to make an Interrogator Chaplain, this kit-bash was simple but effective, I used the head, crozius head and smok dispensers from a spare Serephicus model I had, the rest of him is made up of Black Knight parts, his right shoulder is from the Death Company and I used the book from the old Sammael model I had (he's in pieces thanks to my Alaskan Malamute, he decided he was a chew toy).

I also completed this 10 man Veteran Squad, they are kitted out with:
  • 3 x Plasma Pistols
  • 2 x Plasma Guns
  • 1 x Plasma Cannon
  • 5 x Storm Shields
The idea is that I either combat squad them ( the 2 Plasma Gunners and the Plasma Cannon sit back with 2 other guys, while the 3 Plasma Pistols move ahead with a HQ in a Razorback) the other option is to combine them and put all 10 in a Drop Pod, get out put the 5 Storm Shields at the front and hunt heavy infantry and light armour, I know the Cannon is wasted here but if they don't kill them all he'll do damage the turn after.

  1. That Chaplin is damn SEXY!!!! I'm also loving the Drop Pod idea with the Storm Shields, I never would have thought about using them that way!
