With the new rules, I'm considering trying St. Celestine in my IG army. However, whilst I like her rules, the model never appealed to me and the fluff doesn't really fit my army.

So, for a bit of fun, I thought I'd have a go at making a sort of fallen version of Celestine and her bodyguards. Why post it here? Well, my fallen angel and her revenants are made almost entirely from DE parts.  Smile

This is what I've got so far:

Spoiler:
 

(Sorry if they're a bit hard to see - black doesn't show up detail well.)

Only the Fallen's wings are painted so far (the other bits of colour are from old paint schemes and will be painted over).

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had thoughts for possible embellishments or such for my Fallen? I was thinking of using some of the chains from Raiders/Venoms to replicate Celestine's flowing banners. Any ideas for what could replace her doves?

Any other thoughts or suggestions?

Had a go at painting the scythe. It's a technique I've used before, but this is the first time I've tried to do it freehand, rather than drybrushing it.

Cool idea, I think she turned out well as a kitbash.

Ooh nice! I'm a big fan of using rules as just guidelines for what a particular model can be, and then making something different to represent them Smile

Cheers, guys.

Did some more work today - had a go at doing the armour, the horns and skull, the rock and the armour. I also added a blue glaze to the wings and weapon to make the former more vivid and help blur the colours of the scythe a bit better.

Spoiler:
 

The armour is still a little too drab for my tastes. I might try to brighten the highlights or give it a hint of colour.

I'm still considering whether I want to add some chains or other embellishments.
