Badab War, Astral Claws Tyrants Legion Centurion.

Here is my completed tyrants legion Centurion. He's a simple kitbash with a regular body. Company champion shoulderpads, apothecary head and veterans powerfist from the plastic command squad sprue. The stormbolter and backpack decoration are from the commander sprue (I have to say i stole the idea for the backpack decoration from john at 'johns toy soldiers' excellent tyrants legion - i seriously recommend his blog. Theres a link to it in the bloglist on this site).
Overall I'm pretty pleased with how he came out. Especially his posing, I can just see him stalking the corridors of a loyalist starship. I wanted to give him a slightly sinister look and I think the segmented company champion shoulderpads really make him and give him a hunched, malevolent feel
And a rear view, every Centurion worth his salt needs an auspex in a boarding assault. I will try and add a better picture (as i have done with the retaliator squad) when there is some daylight when I'm not at work!
Now I just need to hurry up and finish the legion cohort and I'll actually getting somewhere with this mini project.


  1. I'm liking what I'm seeing so far! Even if you are putting together a renegade force ;)

    One question on him, though. Did you drill out the bolter barrels, or paint them in? I can't tell.

  2. Thanks very much....although im sure he wouldnt appriciate being called a renegade! (More of a tithe dodger!) I'm afraid they're only painted on. Thinking about it I probably should of made the extra effort being as he's my commander.
