So I've been derailed from the majority of ongoing projects such as the tench table and my 30k Blood Angels something I'm sure we all experience from time to time . I'm largely not happy with the BAs as the painting was being rushed for tournaments that I ended up been unable to attend in the end and burnt out because of it so the vast majority will be striped back and done properly without rushing. But to help ease out the burn decided to start a SoH army with a few goodies and some must haves
To begin with I wanted to do Maloghurst the twisted as he seemed a good modeling proposition plus he unlocks the good stuff as troops
The FW event miniature seemed the closes to the artwork I'd seen of Mal and given his broken body the pose works very well for a model planted on the spot a bulwark so to speak of, at the front the Eye of Horus watching his sons advance under withering covering fire, retreat is not a option.
I have more to do on him lots of SoH icons to add sculpting/filling gaps, I am in two minds about giving him a cloak. I've seen pics of him wearing a loin cloth made of a flensed Astartes so not sure where to go here, cloak or loin cloth?
