WiP white scar and ramblings
Afternoon readers, its been a few weeks since my last update and I must say I haven't really managed to accomplish much on the hobby front :| I personally blame work, Borderlands 2 and me much prefering to read to actually siting and hobbying of late.
However to appease that master of nagging known only as Rictus, i thought I would put up a WiP of my latest Horus Heresy themed model. I've abandoned the idea of doing the imperial fists, the yellow just takes too long and well bores me due t the many many layers you have to put down.
So given I dont want to do another red powerarmour force which rule sout Blood angels, the only siege of terra legion left is the white scars:
This guy has been rather fun, some GS work was done t add the legion symbol to the kneed pad and gauntlet as well as giving him a fur cloak the bottome half of which is taken from a spacewolf. Theres still a fair amount of work to be done on him but hes shaping up quite well.
Next up is a little more progress on the Inq28mm front, i've managed to do a little more sculpting work on the gene enhanced guardsman:
With Inq28mm I find that inspiration will suddenly hit but without it I do struggle for ideas, I'm not the best at thinking up the whole grim dark themes of 40k instead I draw alot of inspiration from comics, games and movies. Hell even music, the black metal music that I like is usually good for Chaotic inspiration.
My most recent purchases of the Borderlands 2 and Darksiders 2 artbooks have given me some ideas, in the case of borderlands the concept art for the varied types of bandits has filled me with ideas for necromunda or cultists. And the darksiders one has given me an idea for a archo flagellent/combat servitor.
Anyway thats enough of my rambling for now, I'll be back with an update during the week as my copy of sedition wars will be arriving tomorrow unless the tracking number lies........
