|Short-haired Space Wolves. Never seen ever since|
|Poetic justice. I had a severed head in my hand, but didn't have one of my own...|
Before I speak of this incident, let me show you the other limited edition mini I was talking about. The 2nd Edition of WH40K was released in 1993, the game having this cover:
|There's green stuff in places you couldn't imagine|
If you are familiar with the so called 'Finecast' resin GW has been using on their models for a while, you already know what I'm talking about. I had heard about the problem, but had never experienced it. These two are the only 'finecast' models I've ever purchased. The last will they be.
Talking about it would be the usual GW bashing you can read elsewhere on tne internet. I'll just say that my own experience working with this resin is not quite satisfactory. I will politely say no more.
But I don't want to end this post with a bitter taste, sooo... Bonus mini! :)
You might rememeber this illustration by mighty Jes Goodwin, depicting Leman Russ, Primarch of the Space Wolves:
|Pretty old piece of art|
I got the mini on eBay some time ago for a reasonable price. Unfortunately without the wolves (Freki and Geri).
|I feel lonely. Like a lone wolf... Lone wolf, you get it? Ha ha... What do you mean by 'not funny'?|
But having this mini, who would like to buy the Forge World Primarchs? Meh! This is more than enough!
|Don't be fooled by my disguise, I still want to kill Bart Simpson|
|Man, I had a rough night|
Unfortunately I'm not familiar with the game or its fluff, so I just painted them in good faith. Hope you still like them!
|Grandma, what big eyes you have. All the better to see you with...|
|Ssss, my preciousss, shouldn't have eaten that ssspicy burrito, I'm sh*tting my guts out|
I'm also painting another totally unrelated set of minis for this same friend. I'm just finishing up all the bunch, so I hope I can show them just after the weekend!
|Total aerodynamic design|
Though not being for me, it still has my usual hallmark :P, that means lots of signs and inscriptions in Gothic (kinda Latin, which is the official language in the Imperium; you know, more WH40K fluff)
|'Aeris Ductus'. Classical 'Air intake' sign|
|Small and almost illegible 'Cave Pedes' under the door (just a 'Watch your step' sign)|
Not much else to show. Here you have a couple of rear views:
|Maybe it's not a good idea to do this on a window...|
