One of the first models I ever got was the Captain Tycho model, which I admittedly ruined by dunking him into some gold paint (well, I may as well have done...). How could I not have a Tycho somewhere in my army..?
But there was a snag. Considering his fluff (angry, bloodthirsty, raging etc), the GW model looks as though they shoved a broom handle up his backside! I needed to fix this travesty...
Its not often I do a tutorial, but this one idea popped into my head, I tried it and it was so simple and easy, I figured I should share it!
What follows is an easy way to give yourself a guide on where and how highlights could be applied.
To my mind, the Sanguinary Priests were like Warrior-monks, in a similar vein to the Chaplains of other Chapters. Simultaneously responsible for the spiritual wellbeing and the traditions of the Blood Angels. To this end, I tried to combine elements of the Empire Warrior Priests and Space Marines. Which meant I needed robes. And hammers. And the Sanguinary Guard.
Using some of the spares from the Sanguinary guard box, I built up the frameworks for the priests.
I decided on one "actiony" pose, one more sedate and regal. I also trimmed down the death masks from the same box, so as to give them the "faceless" look that the chaplains also have.
