    I just found out today there is a librarian in terminator armor from Space Hulk. I look it up online, and BAM. That's the terminator librarian model I would want to paint and include in my armor. The other one just looks fat. But ther's one right now on eBay and it is running $33 before shipping. Ehhh....

    $33 for that is actually a really good deal.

    Not sure if that particular model is particularly bad but a lot of the Space Hulk models were pretty heavy on Blood Angels iconography pre-sculpted; might want to look at a review before you drop the cash.

    I got my Space Hulk termies about a year and a half ago for $60. I wouldn't be surprised if they have gone up since then. I like the Forgeworld librarian in power armor better, to be honest. I'd totally trade you. :P

    They were a little heavy on blood angel iconography, but not as heavy as my dremel tool was on sandpaper bits.

    I don't remember the Librarian being too bad for BA stuff (weird as he's meant to be Mephiston)
    Either way it's a super sweet figure and totally worth getting

    So, the Zone Mortalis parts are not only made of a new resin type for Forgeworld (it's black!), their Facebook page shows someone standing on a peice. At least they won't break.

    The only Forgeworld librarian I can find is Magister Sevrin Loth of the Red Scorpions and he's in powr armor, not terminator armor. Or was there an older one?

  • TheLawinatorTheLawinator Registered User regular
    Nope. Saluksic said he'd trade the space hulk one for the FW power armored one.

    I think I'd rather pay the $33 for the Space HUlk one, than the close to $50 one for the FW one.

    The bidding on the Space Hulk one ends in about 5 hours and some change. The chaplain model I'm bidding on ends about an hour before that. If I don't get the chaplain, and I don't plan to increase my bid on it, then I'll try to get the librarian and go with a librarian. He is pretty sweet looking, and the only blood drop I can find is on his knee.

    Check between the legs, those blood angels are pretty feminine.

    Ewww.

    Just so everyone knows what I'm talking about, this is the Space Hulk librarian, and I ofund a pic online of it on a 40mm base, and it fits just fine.

    My only issue is removing the two tear drops I see, on the shoulder pad, and on the knee. The left shoulder pad (as you're looking at it) seems pretty easy. The knee pad is what I would worry about. I could remove the tear drop, but building the crux symbol back up with green stuff is something I've never attempted.

    Don't forget the top of his banner pole.
    But you can just chop that off and drop some silly bit on top to be a new topper.

    Eh, maybe I won't get it.

    My issue is that GW keeps making htese really dynamic poses, that don't look all that great. Why can't they just amke menacing looking dudes like this, that are walking... nay, striding... forward to kick some alien butt.

    Why not just...build your own librarian?

    Take a bunch of terminator bits, one of these heads looks like it would work just fine, and then whatever else you wanted to use to make him look like a beautiful snowflake.

    I mean...if you don't like a particular line or any of the options for a specific model...just build one. The resources are there.

    You can also make a psychic hood out of a spare marine shoulderpad with some notches cut into it. Slap some scrolls and purity seals from the tactical marine box all over him and OMGPSYKER.

    This is what I found with a quick search. There's probably better tutorials with more pics that show how it looks painted.

    Since I'm going to start getting back into painting, I was thinking about slowly gathering a Space Wolf 13th Company force.
    I'm thinking of building a terminator wolf lord guy of some kind (counts as Logan), and then go Wolf Guard troops, and I don't know what after that.
    I was just thinking that would capture their more experienced marines throughout the force, and I was inspired by From The Warp's article on grey scheme SWolves. I figured do something similarly grey, and either paint on or find a decent way to mold 13th Co shoulder pads.

    Look at that. 3 posts, and there's collected information for Valhalla130 to make the librarian of his dreams instead of being unhappy with his available, ready made, options!

    I know but it's just annoying to see him painted gold in a sea of black and white
    He doesn't look that great as black so I am still debating about what to paint him as if I buy him

    Is Shadowsun finecast yet? because I really want to buy her jsut to make it look like the tau commander out of Dawn of war

    I always thought his rules were just patently bad. Some people love him and will praise how awesome he is, but for the points...I've never been impressed.

    He's terrible for his points.

    The model is BA though.

    Or remove the teardrop and slap a purity seal on there to cover up the damage.

    @valhalla130, if you will consider a Librarian in power armour, there's always this guy.
