du elendige fotze, es ist im höchsten maße inakzeptabel ein derartiges verhalten an den tag zu legen. auch wenn du eine elendige fotze bist solltest du dennoch darann arbeiten derartig fotzig verhalten abzustellen.

Absolutely amazing. The painting, NMM and freehand especially are great but I am fascinated by the sculpt.

Do you have any pictures before paint or could you say what was sculpted and which pieces were used?

What colours did you use for the NMM armour ?

:iconkadiel1:
kadiel1 Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
i used a very limited palette of colours,actually grey but adding to it a bit of deep green,and a couple of browns creating 2 basic colored greys.Then by mixing and changing the quantities of colour in the greys,i blended and glazed creating dozens of tones and colour variations from these 2 colored greys while highlighting and shading gave me more dozens of them.In reality the armor seems to change colours in a subtle way as you move around the miniature but unfortunately im a noob in photography and you cannot see that in the shots i took.When i figure out how to set up my camera ill upload hopefully better photos.

I love it. The quality is very good. What always makes me think is the fact why all faces regardless of type of faction look like of some heretic.

Interesting observation.I think it has to do with the type of content games workshop wants to give to their "good" faction heroes.The iconography of their armor etc,is rather heroic almost saintly in some cases,but their faces have a sinister,almost terrible look.I think they represent the holy fear they bring to their enemies.Its the image their enemies see in battle.It reminds me some medieval depictions of saints when church wanted their flock to actually be frightened by the holy ones.

You can be right. Warhammer40k ideas may have roots of inspiration from medieval christianity. You probably know the origin of the church. Its history and deeds only put a question forward. Who really plays a role of the good in this game? Is there such one?

Spectacular re-imagining of the character - a superior design to the official one, I think. And matched, of course, with a world-class paintjob. Do you have any pics of the unpainted conversion/sculpt?
