This image has popped up on various forums, apparently from the March WHite Dwarf, portraying some new Space Marine models are parts for the Blood Angels

The keen eyed will quickly notice just how many new parts are involved here:

  • Modelled wings on shoulder pads – ideal for pre-Heresy Emperor’s Children as well as Blood Angels.
  • A new mark III helmet, easily converted to any legion by removing or adapting the tears on the mouth guard.
  • Another mark IV helmet, similar to the Black Templar sprue.
  • Mark V and VIII chest plates – Mk 8 is great for Mk II conversions!
  • High-crested shoulder pad – useful for Custodes or Honor guard kit bashes.

Sourcing the Jabberslythe? 4

Sourcing the Jabberslythe?

Today Games Workshop fully announced the release of the plastic Winged Nazgûl for their Lord of the Rings range. While a beautiful model in its own environment I cannot help but wonder where this model can see other uses.

The first idea to come to mind is the re-imagined Jabberslythe in the upcoming Warhammer Armies: Beastmen.  What is a Jabberslythe? The name and description confirm the obvious – the classic Jabberwork.
