Horus Heresy Characters - Master of Mankind - The God Emperor of Mankind #1

So I am working on a Narrative campaign, where Malcador takes a group of Custodes and Sisters of Silence through the Webway on Earth looking for the Emperor. As part of this, I had to make a representation of the Emperor. This is the progress, thus far. 



 I am trying to base him off this popular depiction.



So when I started out on this kit-bash, I took a moment to contemplate the size of God Emperor. Ofter he is reported to appear as all things to all men. Different, yet similar, whatever he wanted you to think he looked like. However there is one thing that is never really made clear, his height. Given he is pre-post human hyper man, nor Primarch, I am guessing he would have been tall for a human, but not quite Primarch, in stature. Given this I started with the following:

  • Head: Blood Angels with a laurel
  • Legs: Custodes
  • Torso: Custodes
  • Right Arm: Lord Celestant
  • Left Arm: Prospero MkIII Armor Power Fist
  • Scrolls and leather pteruges: Lord Celestant
  • Chest: Bits from Blood Angels and Dark Angels kits
  • Base: Custom from my World Eaters set
Now I wasn't happy with the kit-bash thus far. The hair wasn't long enough and the right shoulder pauldron just didn't fit. So I went back and made a second effort. This is how he coming along:


  • Head: Space Wolves Wolf Pack Head (He-man style) with a laurel
  • Legs: Custodes
  • Torso: Custodes
  • Right Arm: AoS Lord Celestant
  • Sword Hilt and Pommel: AoS Skull Reaper
  • Sword Blade: AoS Lord Celestant
  • Left Arm: Prospero MkIII Armor Power Fist and  White Lion Shoulder Plate
  • Pauldrons: Custodes with bits from Blood Angels Assault Terminator Kit
  • Scrolls and leather pteruges: AoS Lord Celestant
  • Halo: AoS Lord Celestant
  • Chest: Bits from Blood Angels and Dark Angels kits
  • Base: Scibor Ancient Ruins Set 2 Monstrous 40mm base 
 I still have to work out how I am going to do his cloak,  with fur trim.  Whether I press-mold it from the Custodes Sergeant cloak or some other mini. Maybe I will roll out some green-stuff  and try to sculpt my own.

 

 
 What do you think so far?
