Well now it’s all done I suppose I should throw at least a little light onto what has happened with the army in the end.
There were quite a few enquiries, I don’t know if it was just people being nosey about the price but a few of them stuck around to the end, one gentleman who I shall leave anonymous made the best offer in the end and the army from the frozen wastes of Fenris is off to somewhere a bit hotter …. Kris, its going to be quite a bit closer to you now, who knows maybe you will see it doing the rounds ; o) though personally I hope he keeps it in a hermetically sealed bulletproof glass display cabinet.
He requested that I finished Russ to go with the army (the dogs will follow) I did him a discount rate on the group as 1. I wanted to paint it 2. felt like a fitting way to tie up the army to send it off, will be sad to see it go now but it’s a fitting end and in a way a new beginning as it’s technically my first Commission, hopefully I’ll pick up some more work …
Talking of which he has asked me to continue doing work to expand the army, there is a converted Contemptor on the Cards and El D is back in the chair once more to bring a unit of Thunderwolves to life to add to the army , there is also the potential for more and more stuff ongoing.
Should be interesting, depending on the weight of additional project requests I’m thinking about a separate web-page for all the commission work though, in a way resurrecting an Idea me and Steve had years ago.
Ebay was a fair result too so thanks to everyone from here who put in bids for stuff. :o)
I’ll have to keep an eye out 😛
I’d love to see your take on a Contemptor, and that Russ is very cool (even though I’m more of a TSons fan :D)
that last picture is the best of all… you just didnt have a feeling of the sheer size… but that thing is mahoosive…
That’s not just the best anesrw. It’s the bestest answer!
Nah, T sons are namby pamby Harry potter in-space types :oP
Might do a pre-heresy space wolves army lead by Russ in future…. once the DE are outta the way nothing else appeals, cept maybe Eldar but I have little faith that GW will give them an actual decent dex after what has transpired with the DE.
Az, yeah he’s a big boy, I was just going to run it as a Twolf lord (statline seemed most appropriate) with a frost blade and SShield and an appropriate saga with a pair of doggies.
Awww dissing the TSons, the only thing stopping me collecting them is that they are only available in metal kits which are overpriced and I am hoping the new chaos codex makes them a bit more of a playable as an army.
Yeah, I dissing :oP
Tell you what once you have a T Sons army sorted in a few years an I do my PH Wolves (wont be for some time) , I’ll try and make the trip to Oz I have been meaning to.
Then we can set things straight ;o)
Haha sounds like a deal!
It’ll probably take me a few years to build the army even if I started now 😛
Holy cow, that Russ is awesome! As is the rest of the army! It’s good to know that you were able to sell it all in one piece. Such a nice army definitely shouldn’t be divided into parts!
With your amount of skill and talent, it seems guaranteed that you’ll be able to pick up more commissions – your Wolves and Dark Eldar were a fantastic advertising for your work after all!
Good to be able to load your site again, all that rumour rubbish meant I haven’t been able to for what seems like ages!!! (24 hours?)
Heh, traffic broke BoK, you did not miss much here, lol
I know, but it annoyed me I couldn’t check just in case 😛
The new cron models are pretty sweet, I have to admit its quite tempting to buy the codex and look at getting into them.
I meant to mention, I put up my Eldar wishlist codex fixes (ideal for a WD release) up on my blog (link in name), as a minimum change, maximum flexibility Eldar concept, within the current framework of the codex.
Be interested to hear your thoughts. Its not really meant to be a 5th/6th full codex change, but instead an inbetweener since we could have a year or two to wait.
All I can say as a noobie around here is…… beautiful painting skills!
So wheres Freki and Geri then? 😛
They are WIP atm, serious problems with my back are preventing progress, getting better now though, will likely be finished in a few days, then hopefully on to the next commission piece.
Hows the back going?
Stupid WordPress Y U NO remember me?
Dude, you are such an amazing painter.
Sigh…I suppose I should give you crap about painting…them, so…
Crap and 😛
Ack! It pains me to say this, but damn…your Wolves (hack! spit!) look really, really …nice.
I’m going to wash out my eyes now. You will tell no one of this transmission.

WordPress hates all life, bastard.
It’s ok your secret is safe, I saw nuthin’ conversationally , I NEVER owned an SW army -_-
Any chance of an update on anything your working on Sorrow?
With your neck of the blogosphere quiet its cramping my interesting reading quota.
tail end of fifth, price rises, moving home etc etc , taken foot off gas a bit for a while , concentrating on sorting my bike/life atm,
I have more commission pieces for the wolves on the agenda and rest asssured once 6th lands I’ll have plenty to write about no doubt.
Bit miffed that what ithought were unique rules for the DE are being tossed about like confetti, lets see how 6th effects things , potentially the Requiem could be up for sale in a few months ….. quite prepared to walk away at this point ( I did with warhammer)
Cheers for checking in , normal service will resume, eventually ….
