Busy week indeed. Unfortunately, not much painting done but I did manage to turn around few heads with my coconut article. It received a massive review on BoLS which gave me huge traffic so a thing to be proud. Who would have thought that it will make such an impact on the community I certainly did not. But it did and now our hobby has become a bit more Eco friendly ^^.
Horus build is coming to a glorious end. My main focus is directed to sculpting the fur section on his cape. At first I thought that I was going to do the whole model in on piece. I know how difficult painting models with so many details can be. So I placed magnets in the hands and on the cape. This will make painting of this model much easier for the client. I'm still hoping that he will commission me for a nice paint-job on this guy but that's not sure yet. I've shorten the bolters and now the "Talon of Horus" looks more appropriate. Oh boy, can't wait to see this one painted he will make an impression.
Do you have that feeling when you look at something totally ordinary for most people and you are thinking "hey I can use this for a diorama or a conversion" Lately I was shopping for groceries and i had that thought when I saw a coconut. I reminded when I was a young wargamer I would use a half of coconut to represent a goblin hut. But now when I'm more experienced I see a wider set of possible uses for the coconut.
Aka Power Claw. It's not an easy task but I think I'm getting there quite nicely I started to build it from a Space Wolves Power Claw and I figured that the claws could look awesome as fingers of the talon. It was a really long process but I managed to make four fingers from the spikes and I made the thumb using a Hormagaunt claw. I have mixed thoughts about his bolter. I think I will shorten them a bit on the back. Also I won't add any amo belt to it like Abadon has it. He has shot out all the bullets at this point.
Today something a bit different than usual. I have a short text that my friend wrote for a project that we are working on together. I would appreciate some feedback from the community. So if you like reading fantasy it's just the thing for you.
On a quick note, gargs are done and flying to Texas.
