Showcase: Perfidious Relic of the Unforgiven.

I had great fun painting this little guy. He's for the local painting competition. To see loads more pictures and how he fits the theme click below.

The theme for this month is fear. Initially I couldn't think of anything in a space marine army that caused fear but then I remembered this little chap. He gives his unit the fear special rule.

It's going to be quite amusing to see him alongside all those big scary monsters.

The cloak was based in altdorf guard blue and then shaded by painting on washes of dark blue, purple and black to build up the rich colour.

The cowl is just based in grey and them shaded with black and highlighted up to almost white. I used a new technique for the nmm blade, going through blue between the white and black.

So what do people think, scary or cute?

  1. Holy hell that is really nice NMM!!!! Where did that new skill come from?! You've been holding out on us.

  2. Cheers zab, not holding out on you at all but just a combination of trying something new and putting a bit more effort than rank and file guys get.
