Xavar Kas, a proud warrior from the Black Legion's Sons of the Cyclops, was sent by the Despoiler to garner the support of the Scions of Change. Abbadon knew of their large collection of ancient heresy-era weapons and venerable heroes of those bygone days. Xavar arrived with a cohort of Chaos Space Marines, highly disciplined and methodical killers with wargear suggesting they specialised in covert operations; an apt association given their purpose for bothering the Scions.
This newcomer is not yet trusted by every member of the warband. Whilst he has the support of several key sorcerers in the group, the ancient Contemptor pilot Renseneb shows a reluctance to trust the outsider: am open contempt that would not be tolerated by any other than the venerated Reseneb. Only time will tell if Xavya will fulfil the promises made, so for now it's still a matter of convincing the group to join.
I wanted to go for a 'mysterious traveller' feel to the model, and a Space Marine captain I got in a trade proved to be a great starting point.
Since grav-guns are not an option for Chaos models (yet), I used an extra Bolter barrel to make a twin-linked Bolter.
His second arm was model to look like he was brushing away his cloak. This has been a really fun model to work on, and his accompanying squad will be equally awesome to work on.
A couple of small horns, from Dark Vengeance chosen, have been added to each side of the helmet. It's a subtle feature which I hope presents the image right.
And with that's it's time to start painting these two. As usual, like and subscribe for more updates and regular chit-chat.
