Last year I created a few tutorials for converting smaller scaled weapons, including a Space Marine-scaled plasma rifle. Despite being really happy with the result, I never actually built a Space Marine to wield the firearm. Eric recently painted a Kill Team of Dark Angels without any special weapons, so the plasma rifle would make a great addition to the warband. With this in mind, I quickly modified a Primaris Intercessor to look like a traditional Space Marine, to fit with the rest of the Kill Team!

I am really happy to have finally used the converted plasma rifle from last year. I think the model will fit nicely with the other Dark Angels. I recently purchased some of the newer Black Templar models, specifically the Sword Brethren and the Blanche-inspired Castellan. In the new year, I am excited to convert some of the models into a few more Dark Angels, so watch this space for that!
