HE IS THE LAW ! - Champions of Law Season 2
As always, the champions of Law are my happy modelling place and though I'm not working as quickly on this 2nd seasonas with the previous one, I have many ideas of things that motivate me.
Amongst many ideas suggested to me, there was one whih always was a bit obvious : the link with Judge Dredd.
Just what other character apart from Dredd can you think of as an embodiment of Law it self ?
From the start though, I knew I didn't wish to port Dredd directly to WHFB but wanted something a bit more like a heavy wink elbow push. The model has to keep the usual style of the Champions of Law.
That's why I started with a good ol' Goodwin chaos warrior which had a fitting pose.
Dredd's design is remarkably complicated compared to many other super heroes and I guess he must be a torture to draw but this is also what makes him recognisable amongst all others. To name a few distinct features : The eagle, the shoulder pads, the chain from the zipper to his badge, his boots, his grin...
Trying to get too much of these on my model would have just make me end up with a Dredd model painted gold. so I selected a few of those iconic details just to clearly state what he's meant to be without breaking the balance. I'll let you guess what those features are. ;)
Weapons wise, I wanted to make a nod to the Lawgiver and Dredd's most reliable weapon : his fist. So here we have Wagner, Champion of Law (or Law itself as he seems to believe).
I won't bore you with the painting recipe for this guy since I already explained it earlier HERE. I have a few things for the champions of Law I'd like to have done before summer holidays are here so fingers crossed !
Next week will be a little peculiar painting wise but you'll read more about it in little time ;)
