Sanguinary Priest No.2 - Start to finish AND Arbitrary Milestone!

My thumbs feel weird,

So after re-vamping my blog wars list which you can find here, I needed to procure another sanguinary priest. I decided to plump for the latest kit from GW for the sanguinary priest and then just convert a jump pack on to him so that he can keep up with the Death Company squad that he will be accompanying.

Here is the sprue as it came:

To give it a bit of an individual look, I decided to use a spare pait of Age of Sigmar Prosecutor wings as his jump pack and also use a spare sanguinary guard helmet for his head. I, like many others, don't generally like the idea of bare headed models on the battlefield as it looks a bit funny!

Anyway, here's what he looks like all together:

The wings are, of course, magnetised and the helmet isn't currently glued on so that I can more easily access the collar of his power armour for painting purposes so he disassembles like so:

This also means that I can magnetise his normal back pack and just take him as a regular foot based sanguinary priest if I want to which is always nice!

And here he is after basecoating with a wash (wings done later):

And the finished body with undercoated wings:

And the final full finished product!

I'm not ashamed to say I think this is one of the best paint jobs I've ever produced and I am very pleased with it.

Arbitrary Milestone!

Today is my 100th post! When I started blogging I sort of expected to have fizzled out by the end of the year, but here am on 100 post, about 17K views and 220K google plus profile views and nearly 500 comments! I am as pleased as punch and a lot of that is down to the generally fantastic community of gamers the world over who share and share alike with humour, wisdom and wit in equal measure.

Thanks for reading my blog it is greatly appreciated :)

Peace out,



  1. That looks fantastic, dude! This model is one where I particularly advocate changing the head, because the one it comes with reminds me far too much of Elvis, and it's constantly distracting*. Also, the helmet by itself on the paint pot looks kind of funny. Just picturing it as one of those disembodied but still alive things, like that time Lorne got his head cut off on Angel.

    *That said, I'm actually considering taking advantage of that resemblance and using it to convert a Noise Marine Champion at some point. There's also an old Wolf Guard I'd like to hunt up who looks just like James Hetfield, who I'd do something similar with.

    1. Thanks man :)

      Now you've said it I cannot un-see Elvis!

  2. He looks awesome Rob, the wings really give a new sense of character to him, and I like the transformation from the meteor to blood drops on his wings.

    1. Thanks Joe! I'm glad you singled out the meteor drops as I'm particularly pleased with how they turned out :)
