Fulgrim, the Phoenician

Fulgrim the Phoenician from Forge World – painted

Fulgrim the Phoenician, was the primarch of the Emperor’s Children legion of Space Marines. He played an important role during the Horus Heresy and eventually became a daemon prince of Chaos. This model depicts him in his more loyal version.

Some time ago I got a request to paint Fulgrim the Phoenixian. A part of the request was to include two modifications to the ForgeWorld model – change his head and his sword. The idea was that the customer didn’t want him to look like a crazed madman, but more like a confident swordsman. One that is worthy of wielding the Emperor’s sword.

We looked up some reference images depictumg Fulgrim the Phoenician, and I must say there were many interesting images, but we needed one that would look good in the smaller scale, so we went with this image from

"Roses of Fulgrim" by Nephilim Amriagiath
“Roses of Fulgrim” by Nephilim Amriagiath

The face had features which could look good enough even on a small-scale model, here’s a closeup of the face from the artwork:

We designed and sculpted the custom head sculpted. And after 3d-printing it, we used it for the model, just like the requested sword. The base is removable, which allows to use the model both for gaming and for display purposes.

Working on this model was really enjoyable, especially because we managed to collaborate on it with Kacpero. I hope we get a chance to do something interesting together again! 🙂

I hope you like my version of Fulgrim. 🙂 And if you would like us to paint something for you, just send us a message with your request. 🙂
