Counts As Lemartes
I have always been impressed by Daniel's Spartan themed Blood Angels army, as well as his use of Lemartes in his Death Company. The DC are always fun as well as a challenge to fight against. Anyways I had some spare bitz and made a counts as Lemartes from the remaining Death Company sprue. Will pass this to Daniel when we next meet ;)
And there you have it, a counts as Lemartes with a hint of Spartan theme.
I did not paint the full "X" pattern of the Death Company, opting to paint the lower halves of the "X" so it looks like the inverted "V" of the Spartan symbol.
Charrggeee!! For Sanguinius! And Leonides!
I really enjoyed painting him. He will assuredly bring more fun and adventure to the games with his daring Death Company exploits ;)
I remember coming across a quote in the Blood Angels Codex of yesteryear which goes like this "For he who sheds his blood with me shall be my Battle Brother eternal." This reminded me of a similar quote in Shakespeare's Henry V, possibly from which inspiration was drawn.
"From now until the end of the world, we and it shall be remembered.
We few, we Band of Brothers.
For he who sheds his blood with me shall be my brother."
- William Shakespeare
And lastly, I also wish all friends and fellow countrymen a super week ahead, and a very Happy and Blessed National Day :)
