My previous blog exists under a profile that isn't very handy for me to get into, so I may revisit the chapters in there one day. This is quite fortunate really as the title was disproved some time ago on my brother's blog, that I contributed to from time to time.
So to open the proceedings I present a recently painted miniature. With the Warhammer Fantasy Battle's Vampire Counts army getting a new army book and a bunch of new figures I interrupted what I was working on to get this figure ready for battle.
This is the new plastic Wight King produced by Games Workshop. The colour scheme is a blatant copy of the original, but as my army is green and red this suited me very well indeed!
|Fear my strange floaty cloak!|
I've made the sword have a slight blue glow to it, he's got killing blow after all.
I had the opportunity to use the new liquid greenstuff on this figure to tidy up his shoulder pads, you can see on the cloak a slight line I should have also filled.
From this angle you would also see a gap in his helmet and cloak if the greenstuff hadn't been applied. Great stuff this liquid greenstuff, recommend it highly - its non-toxic too (unlike the real stuff).
Alas in his first game he proved less than pivotal - I'm sure I'll find a use for him in future. Despite the changes to the book, vampires seem better than ever as heroes and lords, but more on that another time I think.
