Lufgt Huron Carol

Tenuous title, this. I'm not sure how many people have heard the classic French Canadian Huron Carol, which starts

'Twas in the moon of winter-time
When all the birds had fled,
That mighty Gitchi Manitou
Sent angel choirs instead;

But it's certainly a reasonable segue into Renegade Space Marine Characters! 

Astral Claws Chapter Master, he is not. But he'll do, pig, he'll do.
Lots of backbone. Always a sign of good character.

The second likely lad is this Terminator Librarian. He's fully weaponised, courtesy of magnets, and has a range of three Grey Knights anti-psyker weapons. Dunno if that's kosher for a Librarian, but they look good so I'm not checking.

See, now this is what Terminator Librarians looked like back in my day. He's a converted relic of a forgotten past, the Genestealer expansion for Space Hulk. Which rumour has it might be an early offering from the newly-arisen Specialist Games section of GW. That would be ace, especially if it means the rumours of a new Hybrid army list are true.

He was missing his axe, so he got a natty Force Fist instead. 

Also, this familiar. 
And this teleport homer. All these accessories, it's like he's compensating for something.

That's it for the Crypt Angels for this year! They'll be back in spring, like the little crocuses they are. In the meantime, here's a quick shot from an abandoned idea - I was going to do a step-by-step 'how to' paint guide, before realising nobody is going to copy the paint scheme. Ever.

For what it's worth, though, here's a termie in early production. I undercoat black and drybrush the greys in straight away, before doing the red. As ever, I always use the largest brush I can possible get away with, in direct contradiction to all known painting advice. My two-part reasoning is simple:
a) If you always use a slightly-too-large brush, on the rare occasions you actually use a Fine Detail brush you've developed pretty steady hands
b) I'm a massive contrarian
