Hey guys, now that the Ultramarine Assault Squad is finally out of the way, I treat myself with painting a single character model. I’m not too fond of the official new Sanguinary Priest model, as it is expensive and looks like it was really meant to be Corbulo, so I kitbashed my own instead. I used parts from the Death Company, BA Tactical Squad, and Command Squad kit.
My Priest doesn’t carry a chalice, but neither did the old metal model, so I don’t think it’s a problem. Instead he wears a jump pack, as he is meant to join my BA Assault Squad. My Assault Squad has single thruster jump packs, so he’ll definately stand out with his double thrusters (plus I didn’t want to waste the cool jump packs that come with the Death Company kit). Painting-wise I’ll go for a light cream armour, like on the plastic Sanguinary Priest ‘Eavy Metal paint job.
How do you like my kitbash?

Such a great kit bash. Looks totally authentic. Great part choices.
I like it. It's a nice clean conversion, and is bound to stand out on the table.
Looks much better than the new Sanguinary Priest, looking forward to the finished result!
Looks great! Agree that new model is expensive for what it is and is Corbs by any other name. My jump priests need a revamp and I may well take inspiration from here. Thanks!
I love modellers who take bits from several different kits and create new alternate versions of figures, and this Assualt Squad Medic looks great, I can't wait to see him all painted up.
looking good. I love a good kitbash.
Kitbash is life! Very cool Stahly!
Do you think that my Red Scorpions Apothecary will be the sad regular one from Command Squad? Naaaahh…with a world of bitz out there! Lets kitbash!

He looks great, and already has a Chalice on his chest! The newest GW Sanguinary Priest is not bad but definitely needs some tweaking to look good imo (the head especially); yours is certainly cooler though.
