I really like Space Marine Chaplains!. I think its the Catholic school education or something or maybe its the fear inspiring armour they wear I just don’t know. They are so cool and so much fun to paint that I quite often by a new one to add to the collection. The first one here won me first place in a painting comp on underthecouch.net last year. The comp always has a theme and this one was ‘Shades of Red’ the idea beinf that red had to be a key feature of the model. I painted the haft of his Crozius in several shades of red and kept the rest of the model fairly plain to draw attention to it.
I painted this model quite some time ago. It is from the older stock of GW character figures. GW has not bothered to update character fugures for the Blood Angels for years, thankfully Dantes is still a pretty cool miniature even when compsred to the updated character figures for some of the other Chapters!
