Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

Zephon

I completed the second of my two Heresy characters, and these remain the only miniatures I have from the range… for now.

I painted Zephon using a mix of contrast and regular acrylics. I used the same basing material as on Fafnir Rann a couple of weeks ago, but this time I first added some larger concrete blocks to better represent the ruined state of the Imperial Palace where he fights.

I briefly considered a wraithbone-style base to represent his time in the webway, but the concrete he stands on is part of the model so I went with more of that.

Where’s the countdown, you ask? We’re getting closer now:

    Cool model.

    If running with pencils or scissors is dangerous, is he pushing his luck? Asking for a friend πŸ™‚

    Regards, Chris.

    The red and gold both look great on this dynamic sculpt. I hope we’ll get to see you paint more Horus Heresy down the road too.

      Thanks, I’m leaning towards getting some more Horus Heresy models, but I will give myself a break once the count gets to zero and then see what to buy!

    He looks great, and a good choice to add additional concrete to his base, I think. πŸ‘

    He’s looking great, and well done on getting the count so close to zero – that’s already a very impressive achievement.

      When I started, getting the count to stay under 1,000 felt like an achievement at first! Now the count is so low I can barely believe it. Part of me is expecting to find a big box of models I have forgotten about!
