I paint small metal and plastic figures and rarely get to play with them. But that is fine with me.

A Challenge (Part 4 - Herald Finished!)

Along with another game of Flames of War where my dice once again betrayed me (they have now been retired. Permanently.) I have finished my Herald for my Challenge's January commitment. He has no name as yet, though I'll think of something soon - "soandso the Counter" is sitting well thus far.

Last three pics are of his face details, backpack and shell, and my rubbish attempt at verdigris.

  1. Nicely done, man! I love how the eyes turned out, it makes him look a little cheerful - which works for the followers of Nurgle. Their limbs may be falling off, but they're all usually pretty good spirited about the whole affair!

    The texture of the shell and tail are really cool - superb work all around!

  2. You've rocked the verdigris, man. Well done!

  3. @ Mord 7th - Yeah, I wanted him to have that old school happy vibe somewhat reminiscint of the old Nurgle daemons of RT era. Thanks alot!

    @ Col. Ackland - Appreciate your kind word sir!

    @ Tony - Cool, I was worried it looked rather clumsy and rubbish. Thanks mate.

  4. Nice work! I will second the verdigris, looks the part.

    He is very RT era, which I love. Ah, those were the good old days.

  5. @ Levitas - Glad it comes across okay. Thought my lazy effort wouldn't be convincing enough, but I guess I was wrong.

    Yeah - far more "fun" to 40K back in RT. Something that's sadly missing I feel these days.
