I have been looking for a Fireblade replacement for the Blade of Laer ever since the Fulgrim model came out. Its not because I don't like sword that comes with the fantastic Forge World model, it just can't be used in the Great Crusade. So, after much searching, I give you my version on Fireblade:
I went for this sword in the end because it was everything I picture Fireblade and Fulgrim to be during the Great Crusade - flamboyant, elegant, excentric and noble - but also have a simplistic charm that Ferrus Manus would have used. I painted it using the description from the book Fulgrim - 'golden blade that shone with the fire of the forge' the detail along the centre of the sword blends from yellow, through orange and finally to a dark red. I have done red rubies etched into the blade as I feel these would be a romantic, symbolic gemstone for Fulgrim.
I hope you like my work. I am not the strongest painter but I am very proud of how he has turned out.
