Sketch Eternal

I haven't put pencil to paper since before my son was born. It's a shame really because I really love drawing. I just haven't felt the urge or pull. That changed tonight whilst watching Xena: Warrior Princess with my lady and the little man. It's not much. But it's the best I could do with dim light, no reference and a blunt pencil.

I've been working on a Stormcast Eternal miniature conversion for the last while. Gathering the appropriate parts has been painstaking. I've been helped along the way by bits drops from friends.

This character is a mystery even to me. I've this idea of a bulwark of a man. The last of his kind. Standing sentinel over a sundered mountain pass. The ground caked with the ashes of the fallen. Thousands upon thousands of bones half buried beneath grey-black mounds. He bears the relics of those who gave their lives before him. A fallen brother fastened to his shield should they both return home. In this place Sigmars light is but a dim flicker. There is no return for those lost.

Bearing the Dead

And I shall bear them,
Unto the day Azyr' halls draw near.
So that they may be reforged anew,
My Brothers few.

Literature in the Underhive!

Necromunda Novels

This is a good day. I managed to nab myself a killer deal from a local gamer getting rid of his old Necromunda novels. Nevermind the fact that I have a bookcase full of unread Black Library novels. Nevermind that I have yet to finish the End Times series sitting staring at me. Judging me. Nevermind that I haven't finished the Ravenor series I nabbed not too long back after inhaling the amazing series that was Xenos, Malleus and Hereticus.

Nevermind all that!

It's time to enter the Underhive, Scum!

Now to get the rest of them.....
