Guess who forgot about his blog? Same old excuses I'm afraid but I'm sure people have been keeping up to date with all my daubing elsewhere (Facebook linky thing over on the side there). Anyway, it's a new year and I'm even late in acknowledging that. No new years resolutions as that kind of thing is just bollocks. Onto something a bit more interesting... hopefully.
I've gone all Age of Sigmar and decided to have a stab at painting up a Stormcast Eternal Liberator. When AoS was first announced I wasn't keen on the idea and didn't care too much for the Stormcast models. I was one of those people who oddly gave a shit about the direction of a game that they hadn't played since 3rd edition back in the early 90's! I'm just slow to adopt anything new. I moved on though and didn't pay much attention to it all (unlike some - check out any conversation about AoS, some people are still bitching about it). Then Warhammer Quest Silver Tower was released (to another round of whining) and after a bit of thought I decided to check it out as a self contained game kind of appealed to me and I was curious about the models by now. That won me over to GW fantasy again and I was especially taken with the Stormcast Knight-Questor in the set. Goes to show that seeing a model in hand can make a massive difference. As the year went by I just got more interested in looking into AoS, and here we are.
This is one of the easy to build models so has a few areas that display the kind of moulding artifacts that you tend to find on simpler plastic models. I did think of cutting them away but just wanted to get on with painting the model, although there's a horribly obvious area on the back of the right shoulder (not too visible here) that I wish I'd sorted before painting. Shoulder insignia is a decal but I over painted it to blend into the rest of the paint job better. Enjoyed this one and have another four prepped to build a small unit, eventually.
