Fourth in the line of five Blood Angels Captains, I am here presenting you Blood Angels' Captain, Axe Master Ramiel. I was first inspired by the huge double bladed axe the comes with the Sanguinary Guard box set. However I wanted Ramiel to be in a sort of celebrating pose over his enemy. What better then holding such mighty axe aloft on a carnefix’s severed head. To further emphasise Ramiel’s strength and the fact that he is a master in the art of the axe; I gave him another small axe which he is in the act of plugging out from the carnefix’s head.

Pre-Assembly; None of the part composing Ramiel were pre assembled. The pose was a bit complicate to put together so I preferred having all parts painted separately and then assemble them after. To obtain the pose you see I had to cut off the entire right leg and reposition it. I also cut of the double axe holding hand at the shoulder and turn it in order to obtain the upright hand holding position. A bit of extra work was given to the backpack. In order to make it a unique piece I moulded and casted the 2 small wings you see and attached them to the backpack.

Painting: Yet again the painting process is my tried and tested Blood Angel method; that of starting from a light orange and shading up to dark red. The rest is a great attention to detail. Both axes and painted in my katana sharp edge style with a light blue hue to simulate the energy flow around the weapons.

Assembly: Particular attention had to be given to the legs, torso and left hand positioning in relating to the small axe attached in the carnefix mouth. It took quite a bit to make the hand touch the axe hilt in a natural position but as you can see I think I achieved it. The rest was quite easy.

Specials: Besides the custome built pose I had two other special in mind for Axe Master Ramiel. The first was a unique backpack. You can search all around Games Workshop but you will not find another backpack like that. The second is another carnefix head base. I really like how the
miniature can be made to fit naturally on the head.
