  1. Couldnt agree more on mephiston, and dante especially dante hated his sculpt from the day it was released! Tycho and Corbulo could benefit as well, but the rest aint too bad.

    Ever seen the masteroftheforge conversions? his site seems to be down but found some pics:
    http://www.themightybrush.com/mephiston-lord-of-death/ <–his sculpt other guys painting
    and this is his take on dante

  2. Like the Blood Angels, most of the Dark Angels characters are getting a little old in the tooth, e.g. Azrael and Ezekiel. Asmodai has already been redone, but if you ask me, this is the first time he has been done properly. The first model better represented Sapphon. Now there is a character they should do a new model for, followed by a Codex entry 🙂

  3. At least with Ragnar, Krom Dragongaze makes a really good base for an easy Conversion that looks vastly better, and is still instantly recognizable as Ragnar. The others, the options are rather more involved.

  4. I like the new Kharn and Eldrad well enough but of all the old characters still kicking around those were easily some of the best looking and least in need of a revamp. Good calls on all the others on that list, although you missed the one I think tops them all – Abaddon himself.

  5. You raise some good points! I especially agree on the Avatar, because he just seems puny next to some of the more ostentatious new plastic models, and not even the Forgeworld model is a particularly great solution, if you ask me. I also definitely see where you’re coming from regarding Mephiston.

    Talking about Drazhar, while I agree that he no longer quite fits the rest of the DE catalogue, I’d like to argue in favour of his “prancing Velociraptor” pose which I always saw as a pretty cool praying mantis look, especially if you take his swords into account.

    Cypher and Ragnar have definitely aged poorly, but both are perfect kitbashing projects in my opinion (Krom Dragongaze is just a head and weapon swap aways from making a fantastic Ragnar, for instance).

    The interesting part will be to see whether they can really manage to create updated models that are as iconic as the originals. So far, at least in my opinion, Eldrad has been a pretty big failure and Kharn a modest success…
