Apologies for my continued Radar silence, I have been busy (sorta) No real updates in terms of painting as I have been just concentrating on getting everything 4 flat base colours, this takes a remarkable amount of time apparently (and I have had some help)
I have done all the troops and all but one vehicle, I have reavers, Incubi and a Razorwing to base, hoping to push them out by the end of the weekend, wish me luck.
Also I have essentially chosen a list, there is just some final chin scratching and points jiggling required, but thats for another filler post ….
Somewhere in-between I got the urge to do up my Archon, Prince Vidious, pictures are provided. I’m just trying to find a suitable eye to put on the cross/guard of his husk-djinn-trap sword to show it’s alive (anyone who has read Elric of Melnibone will get me)- BTW Archon has been kicking A55 in all of the test games so far , even saving me from complete epic fail in my worst test game so far .
I’m enjoying his growing soul collection *grin* lets just say Driago wont be beating Tzeentch at chess, taking a dump in Nurgles private toilet , Staring down Khorne or defeating Slaanesh in a wanking contest any time soon.
Thought for the day: Don’t play games after fighting with your GF for two consecutive nights which only seems to encourage extreme dicefail and poor decision making (must be catching) I’ll bounce back.
You know i think he’s great, and effective seeing him 1st hand.
Archon’s looking good… Any chance you can tell us the base mini so I can shamelessly copy it? Ish?
Yes, I can , the base model for my Archon….is an Archon….
Pretty good looking model, I like his cute face grimace :3
Btw, where did you get that stinger pistol (?) and awesome ugly head (??) for him?
Cheers , there is quite a bit of extra detail on him, the pistol is from the wrack weapons sprue in Finecrap and the head is a Cast-Cash Vlad Von Carstein.
I suspect that the Wracks are also one big pile of “resin”? -_-
Anyway, thanks for the tip. It seems that your archon has in-built vexator mask thanks to Mr. Carstein.
Nah, no wracks for me yet, reservations about fin€ca$t and the fact I dont use them for various reasons means they are pretty low on the to-buy list, this was a donation.
Nah, the new De fluff says the older and more evil an Archon gets the harder it is for him to stay pretty, mine is out on a raid topping up his ‘tan’ Archons can’t buy vexators any more , which is a shame, I suspect it would be more effective at keeping him alive than a shadowfield…..
