Getting close to finishing Horus now He has turned out to be a little trickier than I thought he's got so many parts with tiny edge detail that meets with other parts and keeping it neat is hard to do! but I had to swallow my disappointment and keep painting the detail until I could see the whole picture I was going to give him a rich copper gold but ended up doing it like I usually do as it just looks better with his countenance

he should be done tomorrow (fingers crossed) and I do indeed think i'll be happy with him when he's all done, I really like how his face is turning out it's probably one of my best I think!

anyway here's some progress for ya

Looking very nice indeed Excellent contrast between the gold and green, and the face is brilliant, fantastic skin tones!

Finished Horus today! man, he's sculpted well! if you're the imaginative type you can see the light hit him and imagine the aura around him as he strides through the deployed forces striking foe and inspiring marines

He was challenging, very fiddly lots of hard to reach places and subtle details but I'm pleased with the result, it's a great feeling when something doesn't feel like it's as good as you can do and when it all comes together it just fits like a puzzle! his face I think is the great part that links him with the history of his name, it's stern, almost baby face but still looks lie it can crack into rage or bust forth into a smile of greeting.

anyways here's a butt load of similar pictures to check out and I think I did the pics right this time









Hope you all like them so far!

You really are raising your game here, which I wasn't sure was possible! Now for the nitpick - although it's not really a nitpick - freehand. I know it's an astoundingly detailed model, but I would suggest that were you to go in for GD (which you're clearly at the level of), use of intricate freehand would, I think, push you into the top tier. Just a wee thought.

Now you've gone and done it all I can see now is the model with Damo's head instead of Horus what has been seen cannot be unseen.

Slippy, get back here!





Some place far away... Yes that'll do.

So I just caught up on the ~20 pages I was behind and Damo, I'd just like to say one thing.

You're a fething showoff.












And we love it!


Everything you put a paintbrush to ends up being awesome. It must really suck to be you.
Kiera is utterly gorgeous, your rapping sucks ( ), the sharks and griffons are stunning and the Primarchs are probably the best I've seen yet.

In short, I hate you.



How's the ZM board coming along by the way? Haven't seen an update for that in a while.


Also, does Horus look cross eyed in this pic? Like a fly has landed on the bridge of his nose or something. Anyone else seeing it?

Thanks dudes and dudettes! so that's Horus all done and dusted now i'm waiting for Vulkan *taps foot impatiently!*

I've been fairly quiet brush wise but not totally asleep I have the next batch of Space Sharks to paint and got them all glued back together and primed ready for go time! I think i'll see if I can challenge myself to paint them all in a day?



and I had a massive flash of egocentric thoughts today in regards to my beloved Flesh Eaters and I shaved the head of the large marine i'm doing and decided to create a Damo Marine I based the colours and washed them with some washes he should take another session to come to fruition and I reckon he'll look pretty wicked!





So that's me for another week, just enough to hopefully keep you interested I also organized 3rd prize for the next Nerdcademy award! so stay tuned!
