Years ago on the GW website when the 4th edition Space Marine Codex was released, GW put up some awesome marine sketches. Mark Gibbons, now with Blizzard Entertainment, was doing concept art for GW at the time, and contributed some great variety to the ever growing Space Marine ideas vault. One that captured my attention was a heavily armored heavy weapon totting Marine. This conversion is one of my attempts at playing around with a few different ideas.
This marine has personalized his equipment with a lone bleeding heart on his knee guard and the artificiers have placed a zorathrax hair crest on his helmet.
Maybe I'll get around to painting more of the Lamenters one day. But before then, I'll be working on my Blood Angels
