Melonhead Reborn

Melon*-headed Feline Limecat Internet Meme
Rogue-Trader Era Grey Knight Terminator 80's Design Classic.

Who would win?

*technically a Pomelo.

Ahh. Dem crazy Rogue-Trader design style, pre-dating, anticipating and inspiring lolcats everywhere.

I received one of these 80's-style Grey Knight terminators through the post recently, coming along as an added freebie to a Dreadnought I purchased off the Bay of Ecstasy. Lo' and behold, it was quickly painted up in the Mordrak's Mob aesthetic and is now the latest addition to my Ghost Knights, completing the circle at last.

I added a plastic halberd from the new GK termie plastic kit, as it came with a Nemesis force sword which didn't suit my squad weapons load-out, and placed a larger base at the bottom.

The Grey Knight Codex still surprises me with the versatility of the potential army list builds, as well as the character entries themselves. Mordrak, in particular, I would consider a real gem of a character in that through him one gets to completely revitalise old, classic Terminator models in one's collection with a fresh coat of paint, and field them in a vry unexpected way.

Can't wait to field the completed squad on the (gaming) table!
