|Group shot: Sanguinary Guard version.|
|Bad picture as usual, but better than expected.|

I also got some ideas for a kitbashed Librarian while painting. Another box of Sanguinary Guard has been on my shopping list for a while, so I can use the banner as a Chapter Banner for an Honor Guard and so I can have options with the Sanguinary Guard, not the least of which is the option to run two squads. I've always liked the glaive the above pictured Guard has, and last night I thought it would work well for a Librarian. Since the White Dwarf I got earlier in the week was a Grey Knight treasure trove, I've been pouring over the sprue breakdowns lately, especially the shoulder pads and extra bits. It looks like the power armor box will come with an extra set of shoulder pads, so I can use one of the pads with a book on it along with a Blood Angels pad. I'm uncertain about the torso and helmet, though they'll probably come from the Death Company box or perhaps the Space Marine Commander box I've been looking at. I want a pair of braced legs so I can pose the Librarian as if he's taking a big swing with the sword, possibly angling the sword like it's carrying up to hit something larger than the Librarian. I'm not sure what I'll do about the psychic hood, but I'll figure something out. I also decided that the Grey Knight codex will be my reward for finally finishing my LPC vow, which is perfect considering it comes out a couple days after the deadline. Now all I have to do is actually finish my vow.
