Black Templars - Marshal Mercadius by Carcharadon Black Templars - Marshal Mercadius by Carcharadon
Too many legends surround this Black Templar Marshal to explain here.. just one would involve a very long tale in itself. Suffice to say, he is a true hero of the God Emperor of Mankind, his courage and piety shine like a beacon on the battlefront.

Kitbash converted 28mm resin miniature.
Epoxy putty for resculpting work, acrylic paint and inks, pastels and crayon.
Custom base made from foam card, plastic kit parts, woodfiller, sand, cork and natural and synthetic fibers.

No, it's a Bretonnian falcon, with a servo skull head added. All GW bits n bobs.

Not only do you have mad skills for figurine painting, you can also write up short summaries for your characters. This is 'Eavy Metal/Black Library worthy.

This is truly an amazing piece. You've captured the look of the Black Templars perfectly through all those scavenged pieces.

He looks perfectly gothic. MY ONLY gripe really is the servo skull on the eagle body...it just looks out of place, but that's me and this piece was really done for you.

Excellent work!

Thank you for kind thoughts. I am a big fan of John Blanche, I tried to evoke this with the colours and terrain and patterning etc. The skull head bird is part of that aesthetic JB inspires.
