Furioso Librarian Dreadnought Kaldonius
I took a bit of a break after painting the last Dreadnought. The Furioso Librarian took a bit of time to paint. He had a lot of nice details like parchments, scrolls and stuff. The front of the sarcophagus was especially detailed. I think i enjoyed painting this variant the most :)
Some fluff for the man:-
The final battle of Brother-Librarian Kaldonius was not witnessed by any of his brethren. His command squad had fought bravely and given their lives for the Emperor. Kaldonius himself was found barely alive and unconscious. He was crushed beneath the corpse of an enormous Hive Tyrant.
Kaldonius had multiple mortal wounds and to extricate him from the corpse of the monster, his brethren had to sever the six flesh hooks embedded into his body. Kaldonius's force spear was impaled into the chest of the Hive Tyrant, its blade blackened and half-melted, a testament to strength of the force of wills at play during the final moments of the confrontation.
With the death of the Hive Tyrant, the Imperial Guard forces and the remnants of the Flesh Tearer's 4th Company were able to turn the tide of the battle. Truly, a single flame in the night had brought hope in the form of Brother Librarian Kaldonius.
Kaldonius himself was later interred into the sarcophagus of the Furioso Dreadnought. His will and mind were undiminished, and now clad in a body of admanatium, the Librarian seeks vengeance for those who fell in the defence of Galend Hive.
Front view. I gave the base a bit of variation in color. Still got some highlights to be done on the entire model.
View of his Blood Fist with Storm Bolter.
Other side view, this time of his Force Weapon, containing fragments of the blackened metal of his former force spear.
And finally, a view of Kaldonius himself, now interred within the Dreadnought chassis.
He's looking forward to wreck vengeance on the enemies of Humanity, especially the Tyranids.
Thats all i got for today ;)
