A word to the wise

"Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers, all of which are true and terrifying to know." - Inquisitor Czevak Turns out, the answers are; "Oh, just a few days", "Our friends will be here shortly" and "We have quite the appetite".

Duskfrost - Corsair Void Dreamer & Unreleased Prototype Farseer

I like purty things. Especially when they're painted by my mate Vincent (aka Duskfrost). Over the weekend Vincent sent through his latest work, a pair of Farseers (well one designated for Corsair duties, to be mounted along side a Gyrinx later).

First up is the Chapter House Studio model which in its own right its ok, and a little out of proportion, however with this paint job doesn't scrub up too badly at all. The patterning is slightly Harlequinesque with the domino cards effect painted on the cape.

Second we have one of the four Juan Diaz unreleased test sculpts (three have now been painted - the fourth to become a White Seer of the Black Library, on emissary duties). The forest theme comes up nicely in this and reminds me of Vincent's previous work while detailing Radagast from The Hobbit.

And together front and back.

Looking forward to what comes up next :)

Resurgence - The hiatus ends

Well, it certainly has been a while since my last post. Sadly life throws things at you when least expected and we must adapt on the fly. So to all the fans out there, thank you for your patience while i've been relocating, pulling my life back together.

So there have been a few things happening in the background over the last month and now they're here for you to see in all their glory.

First up, the Wraithseer - Paying Giger homage after his recent unfortunate passing, Vincent spent 40 hours making sure this guy oozed a sense of presence on the battlefield.

Secondly, the Vampire Hunter/Raiders - Steve has finished these guys off, scenic bases done, magnetising and just all round bad arse. The lad is currently on holidays (well deserved), however at last note he was building the Revenant Titans (four Forge World types) and prepping the two Phantoms. Expect great things to come with these up and coming war machines.

Third off the rank, Elliot is chipping away at the scenic terrain for the theme table being built.

Fourth, the Flyers are in full swing with Matt, having 16/20 well under construction/prepping.

And finally, Navin from PaintedFigs.com has sent out the sample images of the Swooping Hawks - his new blood certainly is impressive and they've been cleared for mass production... watch the skies indeed.
