Ello chums,

I'm slowly expanding my Dark Angel army, and in the near future I'd love to convert myself a custom Azrael and Honour Guard. I'm sorted for Azzy, and know exactly what to do.

Now, I know exactly what I want the Guard to look like, but can't seem to find very many viable bases. Attached is a picture of pretty much the perfect look, but I'm stumped on how to reach it. One thought I had was using a few Chaplain models as bases, which provide an excellent look but do not have the capes. There's also the price to worry, but that's not too bad when I'm only going to be making 4.

Another thought was using Sword Brethren, but I'm not sure if they look ornate enough, plus there's all the iconography. This is a similar problem with the Ultramarine Guard, who are covered in little U's.

Anyone know any decent model bases? There need to be 4 similar looking models, without being direct clones.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

one of the company masters looks a bit like that, the one in the masters of the chapter box.

Oh, should have said. They're a bit awkward, since they will be put into service as Company Masters, or Azrael in the case of the Arsenal.

Still, it's not a bad suggestion. I could always find other Captains I suppose.

Heavy Convert the Dark Angel Vet box set, green stuff and all. But on a side note I have always Imaged the Dark Angels Honour Guard to be In Terminator Armour, and being part of the Deathwing, Like the Best of Best Of best....but that jsut me lol!

the UM honour gaurd 'could work' though i think they look too Smurf like. maybe multiple use of plastics.

I can be percise, but i'd say a combination of eldar, thosuands sons and standard SM's.

Looks vaguely like CSM style armour, I'd check them for possibles.
