Here is something I've been playing about with, he uses a Chapterhouse tru-scale body carved down to the Mk16 shape...









Some of the WIP shots...







C&C welcome

Looks good. I know nothing about the armour type, but it looks very awkward and interesting. Great finish as always. Your models are always so well based and cleanly painted.

Are the arms standard marine arms? How is the length in proportion to the size of the true scale model? Are these the true scale models that have been shut down now?

Looks great, but can we see him next to a normal marine ?

Exactly what I wanted to say... MAGNIFICENT! Let's see him besides a puny GW Marine!

First of all that came out awesome. I wasn't familiar with the armor till you posted your wip but that looks pretty damn spot on Smile

no the smart studios get away with it because they do fresh sculpts and call them space knights and don't mention they are space marines.

ie: chapterhouse studios Linky
Three Stage Studios Link

Warsmiths got shut down on it.

Thanks loads guys for the feedback - it's great to know I've done it on the right lines...

The armour is taken from the Dornian Heresy version of 40k with some rather different Ultramarines. The premise has Dorn as the Betrayer and all the usual traitor legions as loyalists and vice versa (Hence the chaotic raven guard earlier).

As Dysturbed said... The true scale models are from Chapterhouse (it was a guy in the UK that got shut down), but I think warsmith (the UK guy) may have sculpted these anyway (he has done some other Chapterhouse things). They now have a dedicated not-blood-angels squad set, which I will invest in.

I think the arms look ok from regular models (particularly if the 'longer' arms are chosen), but they could accomodate terminator armour arms with some trimming (and not look bizarre).

Here are some scale pics (with a WIP fire hawk mini I have been playing around with).







An extra not-space-marines (not true scale either) is Anvil Industries (some very cool posable bionic arms from them).

Here are a bunch of other WIP bits and bobs - My aim is to get at least some of my backlog of miniatures painted before zombicide and sedition wars (vanguard = elysian/urban fighters squad and strain = nurgle/cultists squad) hit (so no more minis from GW in the next few years!). I'm also trying to avoid converting any new models from my bits box, so I concentrate on painting.

These are mostly very rough basecoated models...

A mix of current projects...
