Brother Noctis, Space Hulk Terminator
The first of my Space Hulk Terminators is finished. I'm converting and painting one of these per month and for January it's Brother Noctis:
I've shown the sculpted details before, but I'm including them here for completeness. All of the Blood Angels iconography was removed and replaced with suitable Black Templar crosses and skulls.
The feet were magnetized so I can swap the figure between a round base for use in 40K games, and square bases that fit on the Space Hulk game board (those will come later.) I'd gotten some questions about the magnets– There are two magnets in the feet and they protrude from the bottom of each foot due to the thickness. I marked the spots on the base and drilled holes that the magnets could sink into. The basing ballast was attached around the holes, and then the figure put in place. I pushed the base magnets up through the bottom to they would meet at the appropriate depth.
Here's Brother Noctis in all his painted glory!
I've put all the marines in a grab bag, and I'll randomly pull one out each month. Next up for February, Brother Claudio! The Black Templars banner will be used to swap the cross icon for the Blood Angels icon on his iron halo.
