All my stuff for the EO (check sig for fluff if you so wish) is in the post however I've felt the itch to paint something after many months and with a less than amazing supply of paints and bitz, I've come up with two-tentacled Larry made from bretonnians and skaven tails. This was literally an experimental piece as I messed round with using skaven tails as tentacle stand ins and tried to push my painting beyond solid blocks of colour, to create a transluscent skin and make the leather look all dirty. Frankly I just wanted to get something up to get started. I'll use this thread for my actual models in the future but for now gaze in awe at what might be the biggest points/uselessness ratio you can get in a game of Mordheim.



EDIT: Well i knew the camera was crappy but it actually doesn't even do justice to this modest effort. I'll try better for the real thing - promise.

And for those wondering, the badge was a completely botched effort at the Yellow Sign of Hastur - i'm umming of over a way to combine it with Nurgle's symbol for a warband standard of some kind.

good looking cultist! I like the double tentacle idea, vey creepy.

I'm not too good with the camera myself but the pictures might benefit from a white background, I take mine in the kitchen Smile

He has a cool old school WFRP mutant look, i like him!

Second vote for kitchen photography here as well, the strip light is about the best overhead lighting you will get without buying lamps and all that malarkey.

Yep, kitchen miniature photography ftw.

A characterful conversion, why hadn't I thought about using skaven tails as tentacles before?!
