Then I brought out the Captasus, and we had to spend 20 minutes ooh'ing and ahh'ing over that. The GW staff guys were pretty blown away, really impressed with both the magnetic work and the paint job. Which required me to bring out my whole magnetic General kit (I was only using the Battle Standard Bearer in the game) and go through
that whole explanation, because only one of the staff guys had seen that model
before. Anyway, you're the hero of a bunch of GW Staff on the North Shore of Massachusetts, for whatever that's worth. -- Chris

HAPPY (early) HALLOWEEN!

The right arm (his) is an Ork arm. I like the *idea* of exposed flesh on this guy and the arm is the only place I can think of. I would swap out hands to have the haft of the weapon in both hands.
The weapon would be replaced with a sculpted Daemon Weapon - something more halberd like than ax like.
The spine on his back I would cut and bend to fit the contour of his cape.
I have *considered* the idea of sculpting a chain cape for him -- or using putty and real chain, anyway, to achieve a more Khorne-like effect.

- Add some pinkish-white to the chipping on the red paint
- Chip the backpack exhausts
- Add mud to the crozius
- Highlight the backpack
- Fix the dozen tiny things people will spot that my tired eyes have missed

This bad boy is still only at the 50% mark and I'm a bit daunted by how much I have to complete in order to get this guy to the level of painting I'm trying to achieve. It's getting more and more tempting to take shortcuts and speed things up.
I'm tempted to pick up another project for awhile, and come back to this one afresh, but then I worry that it will languish on a shelf for weeks (or months) before I pick it up again. So I'll keep plugging away and stab myself in the eye with a paintbrush every time I catch myself taking a shortcut.
