I will model the pistol to be a melta pistol and the spear will count as Dante's axe. The wings, not surprisingly, count as a jump pack.
Of course shortly after I got to this point I took the whole thing apart... but that's another story.
These will be the Swords of Sanguinius. I'm using the Blood Angels helmet scheme with the halved armour - so Assault Marines will have yellow helmets, Tactical will be red, etc. I'm also using Dark Angels iconography - winged sword - for the Tacticals and Ravenwing iconography for the Assault.
In the end this will not only allow me to replace my Blood Angels but field them as the custom Chapter of my choice. WIN!

He was very much kidding. Of course he didn't say "no" when I jumped up and said "yes." I've wanted to paint this model, in Bad Moons colours, for a long time.
Dave was quite pleased and I got a limited edition Space Marine model out of the deal. Good times.
Rather than go with the typical black armoured Chaplain I decided to paint him in a halved scheme. This let me play with a simple blue recipe and add some visual interest to the model.
There is still some touch up work to do but I am otherwise quite pleased with the result.
