Garviel Loken (Conversion) Done
Well, he's all done. Unfortunately because of the cape he couldn't fit at all on the base I finished for him- poor planning I suppose. So, I settled on a regular base like the rest of the army has. I'll use the 40mm base for Captain Nikaetus when I start working on my Avenging Sons again.
Legs are Forge World Mk IV armor, with a plastic purity seal on the left leg. Torso and backpack are from the plastic Space Marine Commander set, though I did carefully cut off the exposed Aquila feathers poking out from under the tassels. The sword I'm using to rep his Paragon Blade is the Company Champion sword from the SM Command Squad frame. The head is from Forge World's Mk IV Command Upgrade pack.
The shoulder pads are Mk II pads from Forge World- the extra detail on the trim works well for a command model. The right shoulder I painted on laurels, and attached a Roman numeral "X" from Secret Weapon's Brass Etch Roman Numerals. Loken's the Captain of the Tenth Company, so I thought this would make a nice touch.
As fate would have it I got an email from Forge World yesterday telling me all about their new Garviel Loken and Abaddon boxed set. I did order it, but I sure could've used last month! Still, I'm happy with the conversion and paint job, and am looking forward to this Friday's HQ Throwdown at Legio Malaysia.
