Happy Easter everyone! While I was waiting for my FW order to arrive, in order to complete my Stormraven with a Razorback gun turret, I kitbashed this Blood Angels Captain model. It makes use of all sorts of pieces. The body is from the BA Tactical Squad, the shield from the BA Terminator Squad, the cloak from the SM Chapter Master sprue, the jump pack from the Death Company Squad, and the power hammer from the Vanguard Veteran Squad. However, he is still headless! There are two options – help me find the right one after the jump.
Option 1 – I really like the Mk7 helmet with the stylised halo from the Sanguinary Guard squad, I think it’s very over-the-top in a good, Blood Angels like way.
Option 2 – This is a Blood Angels helmet from Forge World. I feel it adds a bit more unique flair.
So, what do you think? Tell me your preferred helmet in the comments section.

Option 1, unless you have a few more marines with FW helmets, I just feel he'd stick out a bit too much.
Also, what is your basing material?
Wondering if it's a money saver.
It's just a mix of different coloured sand, each colour a different grain, picked it up at a DIY shop.
Option 1. Love the crests on these helmets and the death mask ones!
Option 2! It looks wicked.
Option 1!!!! haha it's the crests man.
option 2! Looks really great!
Option 1 forever!!!
Not impressed with the paint job , lacks variety, option 1 though
I'm afraid I must agree, although the green makes for an excellent spot colour
Option 2 fits better…….
Option 2 seems more unique and more aggressive which fits for a captain. Banzai is also right about the fit!
Option 1, more impressive
Option 2 – suits the weapons by looking really aggressive
Option 2 is way better!
Mmmm i'm not so sure about the cape with jump-pack. Just my impression. Wellyoucan magnetize it at least.
I love kitbashing stuff. it's my favorite thing about the hobby.
2 all the way!

Option 1, it's very Blood Angels and the cape and weapons options will already set him apart!
Option 1, love the Deathmasks, and are we to expect a gold NMM paint job with tutorial for the armour? *crosses fingers*
