Or how I learned I was misspelling the word Slaanesh most of my life. A very fun model to paint but tedious as hell to assemble. I’ve also been enjoying offsite ambient light sourcing, fun!Gallery View

I’m back from Adepticon and of the many things I picked up at the con, I found myself most interested in what I could do with this dwarf (Broin Bearson) from scale 75. It’s a larger model as well which I haven’t worked on nearly as much as 35 mm figure…
