Chapter Master Lamentors


In Imperial Armor 9, the Chapter Master for the Lamenters is given a brief blurb and we are told that he wears gold and chequey armor. (Strange way to say chequer pattern, but meh). We are told that he is blonde and we are given an overview of his weaponry and the fact he is the Lord of Ruin. (What this means is not discussed apart from the ability in game it provides).

My take on the Chapter Master... (Malakim) is slightly out of touch with this description due to the fact I prefer to do my Sang Guards and Honor Guards with a Silver focus instead of a Gold one. Yellow and Silver suit each other ok as colors and I wanted my Sepluchre Guard (Sanguinary Guard), to be a different feel from the  Blood Angels but continue the theme of the BA heraldry and design process.

Here he is. My only downfall with the figure is I cannot secure anymore of these bases... the company having closed. But I think it suits him well!

I should note too.. I designed the character and the parts, but Maggy from Redstick did the paint for this and the Lamentor. (I am good... but I am nowhere near that good). Next week we begin with some finished GK elements.

Base (unfortunately I only have 1 more of these... probably to be used for a future figure)

Side view. Relic blade (Halberd) is from Kromlech. Shoulder pad is from Sang Guard Sprue
Cloak is from SM Commander.
In all his glory Malakim of the Lamenters. Lord of Ruin.
Infernus Pistol and Shoulder Pad courtesy of the Sang Guard and DC sprues.
Pistol and blade and seal are from DA sprue.

With banner. The banner is from the SM Commander Sprue.
The additional braziers etc are from the DA veteran Sprue.
Chest is from the SG Sprue
Head is actually..... a SW head! Suck it up Fenris!
Banner topper is from the SM command Sprue.
The legs are FW MKV armor
The eagle back pack is from the SM Command Sprue.


  1. Love it but yellow hair needs to be more blonde? maybe some Dheneb Stone highlights? At the mo, it matches the yellow of the armour/banner - unless that was the intention? Thanks for listing parts.

  2. It was the intention. I tend to be much more uniform in my schemes of colour. At a distance its about colouring blending in with things rather than the details. In this case, I did not want it to be totally different from the rest of the force or draw the eye away from it when it is completely set out as a battle force.

  3. Glad to see the figures on your blog. It was a pleasure to work with you in completing the projects, and I hope they bring you many years of great games!
