Back from my travels, and just in time to get bludgeoned by this fearsome looking character. I didn’t have time to paint (if the late hour of my posting didn’t give that away,) but I did spare a little time just to drool. That’s a reasonably orky reaction though, right?
In the words of one frequent contributor, this week’s mini ” I can see why this one didn’t make it to retail release, due to the poor facial features. Also, the baby’s head looks like a Cabbage Patch Doll…” You have got to see some of the creepy paint jobs that ensued on such an innocent seeming model.
About a month ago I made a post about the ‘return’ of everyone’s favorite Nova, Richard Rider. After basically falling off the map at the conclusion of Abnett & Lanning’s cosmos-shaking Guardians of the Galaxy run (rather, after being marooned in a vacationer’s paradise called “the Cancerverse”), Rider’s absence has been felt by fans for years now. Now, over year and a half into the Brian Michael Bendis penned Guardians series, answers to the mystery of what happened to Nova are finally at hand… Or so we thought.
Damn you and your slow teases Marvel.
This miniature is scary even when it is unpainted. One of our regular painters did point out that it is ridiculous to wear that much armor when none of it is protecting your vital organs. While I agree, I would never make judgements about the fashion sense of man that carries an axe that size in one hand.
That would be bad for my health.
