Very evocative work, thanks for posting! :D

Agree on the cloaks and your deep red tones are enviable ;)

Thank you very Much Tael.

I'm going completely off the reservation with this one.

As a kit this Bandai HG Gunpla one is super nice to put together very intuitive and a joy through out. It's fully poseable even when painted (if your carful) and is super cheep to boot! I'd recommend everyone at least get one HG Gundam kit to at least build. This project is to test my abilities and skills... I've plenty more to do on this and I'll keep you informed and updated.

I've been going through my back log of personal models and found these two;

Grombrindal in his prime

And A Champion of Khorn a white dwarf model that was released along side Gorechosen.

Lovely models, closet fanboi of dwarfs, especially those with the nice bases ;) The usual due kudos on the paint job too, nicely done.

Yeah a friend bought me that Grombrindal model last time I was at Warhammer world and as we are planning another trip soon-ish I thought it best I get it painted. I've always loved the Slayer models, but as they were all metal and not very good on the table I never bothered... I'm not sure I'm as in love with the new range as I am the old background for troll slayers.

Took my first trip to Warhammer World recently. Better than I expected, the Forge World store is amazing, and the exhibition is really beyond words! My jaw dropped and words were sworn entering at least a few rooms. Went with some friends, who gamed in our teens - they didn't love it quite as much as I did, and really I need to go again to spend more time looking through those rooms.

Yeah it's well worth the trip. I'd love to live more local and game there more often. The exhibition halls are amazing and well worth the modest entrance fee.

I know I'm all over the place right now with hobby projects. I'm glad at least one person is enjoying my journey.
