Ever opened a copy of one of the realm of chaos books when you were ten? Ever tried to own each and everyone of the Jes Goodwin chaos champion? Ever spent days lurking on ebay for a complete Kaleb Dark or chaos toilets?
You're at home here.
Every new release for Necromunda seems to be aimed directly at me. I guess I'm either someone super important or more likely we live in an age where people like me have the chance to be targeted right at their weak spots in the entertaining industry.
And I have to confess amongst many others, one of my weak spots is naked blue winged mutant babies... That's just how I roll.
Now I'm ashamed it took me that long to get this one painted honestly but I will probably come up with excuses if I have to. Now this one was even better since it was a freebie from the latest Colony 87 KS so it was a shame not to have it painted really !
Now what made me paint this little cute demon ? Well 2 things actually, the first one being the fact Caryatids are getting fashionable these days. They're making a come back ! Just remember what they were in Confrontation :
Oh and wait, just look at Gang War, the latest supplement to Necromunda :
That's right, that's just how spoiled we are.
Now the second reason is that a friend of mine had organised a painting challenge on a french page and it was so cool even though I only had one day left to enter, I just had to find something !
The jury and contestant are of a much higher standard than I am likely to ever be but it felt nice to take part and play a bit. I realized though it would have required some time to do something worthy !
I didn't learn as much as in the first one because I basically just had an hour to spend but y'know, I'll give it another try someday because I believe there's a lot to learn for a lazy guy like me from such an exercise.
I'll see what kind of character attracts this little fella in the coming games.
I'm quite happy to see that despite not thinking about making this one match with the older ones I've painted, it actually does !
Now if I had a little more time, I might have refined the blending a bit because you can still see the grain from the undercoat (on the photos only though). ^^
I think I would have tried a few tattoos since they're canon although I have to say I don't really fancy them having those from a visual perspective but you know, it could be fun.
May has been a very productive and rewarding hobby month so I'm pretty happy about it and June is already heading to be a productive one if I want to meet the self imposed deadlines I've set myself !
