What's up gang!

mmmh.. maybe I spent too much time painting listening to the Pointhammered Handsome boyz... but really is there such a thing as too much time spending listening to their sweet honey voices.

Well bottom line I painted a lot lately. One the project I have been working on is a Light Liche Wizard. I usually field one a support wizard (lvl 2) or even more recently as a lvl 3 or 4 also as a support but of Arkhan the black (so no Nehekara caster). I loved teh idea of Mark the Beastman from Bad Dice. I think his list is too optimize for teh game I play, but I liked that aspect of no Nehekara and Heavy Construct. Basically I tweaked his idea to make it my own version of it.

Anyway,The TK range is really good arccording to me so far you stay away from their casters. It took me a little while but I came up with the idea to use a 40K model from the Tau range. With very minor tweak (such as filling his frontal vagina with green stuff) and it was very suitable. I also like the idea of my casters controlling the sand element, so with some bits I kit-bashed a hand lifting him from the ground to stand out of the unit. Easy trick and nice effect. I find hard with all the scheme of my army to have my caracther really showing off. A pedestal of a sort is always a nice twist.

So here is the bad boy

I tried some wet layering... alright for a first trial but a lot of practice ahead if I want it to significantly differ from standard layering.
 You can see the face is a bit "chalky"; I used an old GW white can to prime it and it came a bit sandy/chalky... but not so bad that I would have to scrap it.

And of course cause I am an uber nerd, i need to scene my new toy.
So here is Tommy (I named him after Tommy Lee Jones, cause they have the same smile) in his summer house.

 and here is Tommy dancing for the solstice....

Ok so that was my first Finecast full experience. I assembled some other before but they all broke... This one redeem a bit the material to my eyes.

As usual, please let me know what you think.

  1. Awesome conversion there...

    My partner complained a little while back that there was not enough variety in character models for the Tomb Kings.

    I'll have to show her this, thanks for the inspiration.

    1. I totally agree with her. I try to lift mine from the ground like they control the sand around them so they overlook the unit and stand out.
