...I want to know how that joke would end now. Maybe make suggestions in the comments? I now have the camera back, which means I can now show you everything I've been working on recently, starting with the Dwarf I finished last week. I painted him to look like he's from Erebor as it's shown in the films, hence the green marble base and the dark coloured clothing to match the appearance of the Grim Hammers. I've also added the dwarf standard bearer to the gallery here, so do take a look.
Next up, to fill the time between finishing off the dwarf and the Imperial knight arriving, I decided to start painting on an Imperial Guard Commander that I've had sitting around for years, but which I was unable to decide on a colour scheme for. I finally settled on a dark brown and pale blue scheme, based on the musketeers uniform in the recent BBC series. This actually fits the model quite well, since his beard and moustache are in the 17th century style.
The Imperial Knight has now arrived, and so I've started assembling him - only two days in and the legs are now built (damn all those pistons), and I imagine that the torso will be soon. I'm keeping all of the armour plates off while painting, so that I can paint all of the large areas of silver first. I'm then planning on painting the gold linings of the plates before sticking them on, and finally painting the purple and cream colour scheme of House Andryr...
...speaking of which (this is a busy blog post), I've now added the background for House Andryr to the website, which you can find here, which details alittle bit about the history of the house and of this particular suit, Defensor Arcis (though some of it is still work in progress). Hopefully in my next post I'll be able to show you the fully assembled knight, but until then remember to check out this website's Facebook page here, and feel free to comment. Now, about that dwarf, guardsman commander and Imperial Knight...
