Reincarnation - Kingdom Death Phoenix

This is the second time I've painted the Phoenix, and it's just an epic model, regarding both scale and detail (and quantity of creepy little hands).

This time, I went with a more traditional red paint job, though still with true Kingdom Death gross fleshy bits.

Big Guns Never Tire - Astral Claws Devastators

Huron's "Though my guards may sleep and my ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that the big guns never tire" is one of the more memorable 40k quotes IMHO, despite being a bit silly these years later. I'm pretty sure it had at least a little to do with my eventual choice of Astral Claws.

The Walls Have Eyes? Watcher and Kingdom Death years 13-19

The Watcher is a pretty snazzy ghosty guy, had a lot of fun painting him in a near-monochrome, with a few tones of grey and just the teal as light sources.

Someone Else's Tale - Review of Megacon's Myth

The defining narrative Megacon put out, of a game of the players' experience, falls short.

With their rhetoric and rules gaps, it certainly didn't feel like much of a story, and definitely not my story.

A Two-Plus-Two-Equals-Four-Man - King's Man, plus Home? settlement years 7-12

I really like the contradictions in the King's Man- it's a model covered in faces that's faceless, and it's an automaton that has personality.
