I thought that I would write a quick post about where I am up to with the hobby ‘queue’ seeing how I finished Krom at the weekend – there will be a separate post about him after he has been given to his new owner and they are pleased with him.
Above we have the four minis I will be working on next. First will be Cato Sicarius, who was won by @PerfectFulgrim on twitter. An interesting case as he was fine cast. It took a while to get him looking half decent. I popped him on a huge tall base as he did not want to be smaller than the Primaris Lieutenant who is next to him looking bemused.
The Primaris Lieutenant is the one from the Conquest magazine and I think I will sort out a give away for him. I have a few Ultramarine Primaris in the house but I don’t play or use them much so he would just sit about looking pretty, which is a role no Space Marine should ever play.
The last two are going to go to author Graham McNeill after a conversation had on twitter. After watching The Outlaw King, he wanted to write a High Fantasy Novel with warring factions. I said it was a good idea. He agreed so long as I painted the minis for it. I am not painting a full on book amount of minis but I think a wizard and a warrior should do nicely… now, how do you paint tartan again?
What I do want to do is branch out from painting just space marines. I love them, they are my favourite for many reasons, however I need to now branch out and explore other areas. Let’s watch this space and see what happens!
After these are finished, I will be opening commission slots. I am unsure how that will go but I can only try and see. Of course, I am open to discussion any time for those who are interested!
