Part of the weekend was spent working on building the miniatures for the diorama I am making for Golden Demon, as you will have seen in one of my other recent updates. After I had put them all on corks to be undercoated, I discovered there was no spray paint in which to do it with. Instead of heading out to get some, I decided to finish off a couple of other miniatures that have been lingering on the table for a while.
The first ones were these lovely looking fellows, who I painted for the husband:
He helped me with the corking so I thought it fair to assist with these two lovely fellows. I am not big on nurgle but he has a sizeable force of daemons and space marines. One of these days I will get to paint Mortarion, maybe when I finish Magnus some time this millennia…
Then I was forced to paint an Ultramarine, which was not the nicest part of the day.
I don’t think Haarken is my best ever work, but I am pleased with how he turned out. He is not a display piece, he is for being used. I am pleased with how the gold looks. I think the edge highlighting could be a bit neater, but maybe I am being overly picky about it.
I love the miniature and the character is shaping up to be really interesting. I’d certainly like to know more about where he came from and what he has done to earn his place. A few friends and I suspect he was once a Night Lord, but this is mere speculation on our part.
