Dark Angels Devastator Squad Camniel

Sergeant Camniel has taken command of 9th Devastator Squad, 5th Battle Company in my Dark Angels strike force for Warhammer 40k that is getting reinforced at the moment.

The Sergeant has been painted from scratch over the last couple of days to replace a different model that will instead lead a second Tactical Squad. With his bolter, auspex/signum and target acquisition index finger, he was making the ideal candidate for the newly vacant position.

The Marines under his command are Space Crusade figures that have been painted back in the mid-90s. Some of them were converted to shoulder mount their weapons, as was doctrine back then. As a little upgrade I swapped their left hands out against standard issue Space Marine gloves where before they were using filed down plastic Space Ork hands.
