Astral Claws Captain

Here is my Astral Claws Captain. he is converted from the Master of Rites model. The inspiration for the conversion came from a Golden Demon entry, the only thing I have done differently is add some of Forge World’s Astral Claws shoulder pads.

Here’s a wip photo of the conversion:

One of the things I really like about this model is the expression on his face: he has a ‘sneer of cold command’, to quote Percy Shelley, which is perfect for an Astral Claws captain. This, combined with the pose of the Master of Rites model, exudes an air of superiority and arrogance. This illustrates how a simple conversion (just a head and arm swap) can dramatically alter the dynamic of a model.

    Great stuff. Really nice work.

  2. Wow, great job! He certainly DOES capture that haughty martial disdain of the Astral Claws. He would make a great Centurion for a Tyrant’s Legion army. I’ve been wrestling with what model to base my Arch Centurion Carnac Commodus conversion off of. This gives me some ideas.

    Glad I could inspire 🙂
