The Future and Other Things

My time painting my core force is coming to an end. I'm kind of sad. For the last year and more I've dedicated most of my modelling time and painting efforts towards my yellow fellows. I've been toying with the idea of splitting my next extension for my force into a White Scars pure bike force(see above photo....ok, so those are LotD, but I love doing choppers, and those ain't mine btw!). I also want to continue the possibility of converting a Kor'sarro Khan counts as Fist version. What the duece is it with GW not making a KK model on a friggin' bike? My pals want to convert a model of him on foot with a "Terra or Bust" sign. Wait a few days and I'm coming out with my last devastator squad, then comes Big Daddy Pain, Darnath Lysander!
This is a piece of fan art by a deviant art artist whom goes by the name Aerion the Faithful. He's been in the game for quite a while, and his art is phenomenal. He hasn't fallen into that lame-ass trend of looking like so much anime. And he's a fan of the game(obviously). He also does commission work, which is pretty friggin cool.

Ok, this portion of my blog entry is dedicated to fan tattoos. I have two Star Wars tattoos myself. They mean alot to me. I didn't get them on a whim or have them done by craptastic artists. I plan to have my entire right arm be a sleeve for Star Wars, and my left arm is going to be for a Imperial Fists sleeve.
I love tattoos, which is funny because I hate needles. I wouldn't advise just anybody getting ink. You have to think about what you want, why you want it, and where on your body you're going to get your ink set. Most importantly, where you get the work done. Check out your shop, get to know your artist. Don't hesitate to demand things from your artists, they aren't the ones getting a permanent piece of art inserted into their flesh.


  1. Dude. Imperial Fists tattoos. That is pretty dedicated. Hope you let us know how it turns out.

    I'm thinking of converting all HQs to IFs variants. Thought it could be a fun modelling challenge. There are some awesome cool Raven Guard count as over on From the Warp for instance. Well worth looking at.

    (If you want to start another chapter, Raven Guard got a truckload of cool things from FW:) )

  2. I'm honestly not a huge fan of those bikes. I think it would be interesting to see what you could do with one of the new Xenos armies... We have the Dark Eldar black box at the shop now, you should come in and check it out!
