Dark Heresy Character WIP - Psyker

Here is a very WIP shot of the next incarnation (3rd) of my DH character. I have had the pieces assembled for quite a while (ever since my character picked up a shield and a waist coat) but have struggled over the various other details. Originally I had him with his sword in hand and the head slated to be removed ( replaced with the full-face mask helmet now hanging from the back pack).

The figure is a Necromunda Kal Jerico; the back pack is from Secret Weapons; the 2 holsters are from Forge World; the shield is a mk1 Rhino armor plate; the sword is from an older style chaos warrior sprue; tucked away out of sight under the shield arm is a pair of grenades and an inquisitorial shield from the Grey Knights sprue (I think); the helmet is from Wargames Factory; and the "fire ball"/hand is from a Warhammer Quest mini (a Sage?) with crystal ball.

I still need to add pistol grips sticking out of the holsters and build up the flame "fingers" on the fire ball with more liquid greenstuff--I think that will do it for the conversion. The paint scheme will be based on enforcer/arbite colors (medium blues for everything but the coat which will be medium brown) as that is where the armor, helmet, jack coat and shield came from.

You can check out the previous figures of this character, and the entire acolyte cadre here.

Our tech-priest and scum also have new figures. When I get them all finished, I will post a showcase for each mini and a new group shot.

That's it for this post.
