Vampire Lord Complete and Magnus...Did NOTHING WRONG

Hello again,

Quite the industrious week for me in terms of posting. Twice eh! Blimey. I've been beetling along with me Vampire Lord and I am reasonably happy with where he is now. He is a practise piece for various concepts which includes the base (more below). So here he is done, sans basing. 

For the basing, I'm going to make him into a little diorama as I have no intention of collecting vampires for AoS unless they re-do the blood knights. I've ordered some bats and swiped a mausoleum for the garden of morr set on eBay. The vampire lord will be astride the bats as they smash out of the roof of the mausoleum, which will itself be half buried in a dirt mound with zombies crawling from the grounds. Exciting!

In other news, the techniques practised here are now being put into action on their original target - Magnus. Here's a quick look at where I got to last night.

Obviously as huge way to go, but will pootle on as we go!

Peace out,

Vampire Lord - Practising Painting

Fancy meeting you here!

Oh so long since my last post. Forgive me for I have sinned. Prioritising real life always makes me resent not being able to hobby for a living... Anyway I have now submitted my PhD and I am awaiting my viva on Friday the 16th of November. However, in other good news I am also fairly certain I will be moving to Nottingham for a post doc in the new year and so be right by the hobby mecca!

Anyway, enough of that. I have been trying out other painting techniques in my spare time (as well as painting for Winters Seo) on spar miniatures I have lying around. So here we are with my Vampire Lord. I'm thinking of making him into a diorama. 

Thoughts my friends?

Peace out,
