Pre Heresy Dark Angels; Chapter Master Castiel Druas

Hello everyone!

Tonight I would like to introduce you to my 30k avatar; Castiel Druas. I will go in to his rules in a later post, so today I will be looking at the model that I have kitbashed/converted.



The base model is the Commander from Dark Vengeance, I then replaced the helmet with one of the Forge World, Dark Angel specific heads and then glued the wings back on. I wanted Castiel to be obviously Caliban born and I hope that comes across in his attire and the equipment that he uses (which I will discuss more next time).




Castiel and his bodyguard of despoilers launched a counter-attack at the Death Guard breachers on the desert planet Karadrex.



Plasma Repeater marines took aim and fired as Castiel approached.




Fighting his way to the marines, an aggressive combat ensued with casualties on both sides.



In the end, Castiel was victorious and returned to the main thrust of the Dark Angel assault.



I hope that you have enjoyed my post. For my next one I will be showing you more of Castiels rules and a discussion around them.

  4. Nice conversion. I think it really shows the dark angle fluf really well. I would have loved to see an in progress build of him as those arms don't look like the originals.

    1. Thanks. The arms haven't been modified the head is the only thing that was changed but the pre heresy paint scheme makes for a completely different look
