Some quick photos

Two figures recently finished (but yet to be varnished).

A Citadel Estalian arquebusier (I believe sculpted by Michael Perry) quickly painted as a test figure (I have 9 more primed!) for a planned regiment for my Empire army. I painted him quickly so as to get him in the Lead Adventure Forum Pikes Muskets and Flouncy Shirts Painting Club (entry Number 56).


The paint scheme is based on the scheme Mike McVey used in his diorama created for the release of the Lizardmen in 1995(?). I will post some scans of that when I have  varnished and taken some better photographs of this figure.


I am fairly happy with how he turned out, especially as I painted him so fast (2 evenings – astonishingly fast for me).


Finally some classic 40K returning to this blog (it is always closest to my heart though…): an Imperial psyker. I painted him a while back for a Random Platypus Forum Paint-a-long but to get him in in time I left some details unfinished. However Asslessman recently painted up some absolutely gorgeous examples which inspired me to finish him off.


He represents the Evil Lord Varlak (see White dwarf 187), before his descent into madness and heresy. I will post more of that story when I varnish him and take some better photographs.


Overall I’m fairly happy with him, and tried to follow the classic Eavy Metal scheme reasonably closely – though I felt he should have yellow chamois gloves (all gentlemen should really).
