Also, I was hoping that the first primarch to return would be Lion himself, so it's nice to see a glimpse of "what could be" :)
That makes two of us.  However, looking at it, it really does make sense that Guilliman is the first Primarch to return to the Imperium.  I mean, he was the one Primarch where they actually knew his location.  He was in stasis on Ultramar.  None of the locations of the other Primarch's are known, so who knows if or when we will ever see them return.

I would love to get official rules for the Lion; and when that day comes, I will shelf this model as a display piece.  But until that day comes, this is my Lion.

Wow... what a fantastic job GML. I absolutley love it... Until I had just recently painted a Dark Angel in green for a friend, I didn't like the colors... but now I really do think they look great. I like your reasoning behind the green armor too... I think it makes perfect sense.

My favorite bit has to be the sword.... I love how its a classic power sword taken to the ultimate degree.

Great job man, a super ambitious project, exceptionally well executed.
The Dark Angel colour scheme, on paper, looks boring as hell, to be honest.  It really is just a flat, dark green that doesn't do a whole lot for the model, so I can totally understand your initial dislike of it.  Personally, I've always gone for a slightly brighter green and prefer how you get the implied darkness while not being drab.

With the blade, that is exactly what I was going for.  I never thought the fire blade made a whole lot of sense.  I mean, where are the flames coming from?  Now, a blade that had been energized to the point where it starts to arc and cause flames... something in the electrician in me just smiled!

Guilliman does make the most sense in many ways.  He's also the best within the lore too.  He's a brilliant general and an excellent statesman, which is just what a troubled empire needs.  The lion, whilst he is a great general, lacks the human touch. 

If other primarchs do come back, I just hope that GW put more effort into the story.  Not to drag the thread off topic, but the plot of the Gathering Storm was far to rushed in my opinion.  Each of the books brings monumental lore changes in what has been a static setting for years.  Imagine how many awesome novels could have been produced. 

Hopefully, future progression (if any) will be paced better.

I agree wholeheartedly!  The ending of Gathering Storm III was very, very rushed. 

- What happened with <character 1>?  Oh, he beslubbered off back with his people...
