Although I've recently shown some Grey Knights work in progress and some photos of my Death Korps, I've also continued sculpting the vampire's face, which is now finished! I'm very pleased with it as my first face, it's certainly been challenging to sculpt which is good (it wouldn't be fun if it was easy)! Now I've got to give her some arms and touch up a few other areas which I'm not happy with
I'm sorry it's taken so long to get round to this, but I finally have pictures of the Death Korps of Krieg as requested. Because I personally dislike the stormtrooper models, I use the Death Korps models to represent my Inquisitorial warband's Warrior Acolytes. I currently have two squads of 5 men each, and a quad gun with crew. I also have one squad left to paint.
Before I start talking about these, I'd like to say that I've also finished sculpting the vampire's face, and I'll show some more pictures soon. However the camera isn't here at the moment, so instead I've got some photos of my Grey Knight Strike Squad, who I'm painting to complete my 600 point Schools League army.
Firstly, I'm sorry about the delay in posting, there were some technical problems and I couldn't edit the website for a few days. However, I did use the time productively, and I've been sculpting. Which leads me onto my second point, what I've been sculpting. Following on from my previous post about the vampire, I've continued sculpting the face, and it's nearly done. The pictures aren't as good as I'd like, hopefully I'll be able to get some better ones soon.
Here's a photo of my work in progress vampire, a model currently on my paint desk (unlike some models I've shown recently, which are work in progress but on hold for a short while). I bought the model over a year ago, and since then it's sat on my shelves waiting for attention. However, a recent conversation about vampires caused me to start work on her.
Isn't that picture pretty? It's the cover of the book 'Angel of Fire' which I read not long ago and really enjoyed. I never really liked Macharius before (possibly due to the antique model), but after reading the book this is no longer the case. In particular, I liked the depiction of Macharius as being similar to Alexander the Great. I decided to paint a model of Macharius, mainly inspired by the book's cover.
A while ago I bought a Forge World Commissar to join my Death Korps (who will soon be featuring, I promise), but I never got around to doing anything with him. Partially because I lost his hand. Recently I decided to convert him to represent Commissar Cain from the Black Library books (for those of you who aren't familiar, think Blackadder in space), because it was better than him sitting in a box waiting to be built.
My name is Chris Nelson, I'm a hobbyist. I started around eight years ago with Lord of the Rings as my first system, however I prefer painting to gaming.
