Calix Avantes

I recently made a list that called for a Priest with a combi-flamer, and I happened to have a headless Tycho sitting around. I replaced the melta barrel with the front of a hand flamer and gave him a Sanguinary Guard Death Mask.

Calix Avantes is a seasoned battlefield veteran, having served during the Corinthian Crusade, the Badab War, and over seventeen engagements thus far during the Lamenters crusade. Though those of Sanguinius' are notoriously long-lived, members such as Avantes are still impressive, having battled in the name of the Emperor for over eight hundred years. He wears the full silver armour of the traditional Sepulchre Guard, as do many Calix' of high rank. His combi-flamer, 'Ember' was hand-crafted by Techmarine Ignacio during the Badab War. After the blow of the Battle of Optera, it was Avantes who became the emotional leader of the remaining prisoners of war.

Not bad at all! I used chainmail, assumed your using boltgun metal? Still quite good! Keep it up man. Nice fluff.

Love it, very moody with the skulls on base too.

Very Impressive but the cabling on the flamer part would be blasted away the moment the bolter part fired, as it falls across the barrel

Outstanding! The color, pose and overall feel given by the model are perfect. Full of threat and authority!
