Necron Tomb Stalker

Just a quick update today. I finally finished construction and conversion on the Necron Tomb Stalker and its now ready for paint. I've been working on and off on this guy for awhile now, and let me tell you, this model is super fiddly to put many legs.

Its a commission and the client wanted it to be phasing through a wall and attacking a Guardsman. Converting the guardsman was the most fun part of this and I went through several ideas before I settled on the final pose for him. I am pretty happy with how he turned out.

The hardest part of the conversion was getting all the legs to fit on the base with that wall in the way. I still may need to take out a few chunks of the wall to get the Stalker to sit as flush as I want.

Until next time,

For Sigmar!

Or whatever god is appropriate!

Just finished this guy as part of a commission. He is for a game of D & D and will have a wizard joining him shortly. I am trying to play catch up on some commissions while also getting started on some more Plaguebearers so I can get the painting guide for them done. This guy was fairly quick and easy as far as commissions go, now I just have one more single model and the grand daddy of commissions that has been on a slow burn for awhile now; a heavily converted Necron Tomb Stalker.

And in other exciting news there will be a step by step painting guide for my Maximus figure in the November issue of Wargames Illustrated

I am told it will be out around the last week of October, so be sure to pick up a copy. I cover every color with high resolution pictures for each step.

Until next time,

Come and gone

I guess I should point out that this is the day that my teaser images have been counting down to, well it got delayed. Sorry. It will be up on the 19th, rain or shine. (edited date)

To make up for the delay though go check out my article on Bell of Lost Souls.
