Obviously the display gallery was worth a visit to see soem of the wonderful studio painted armies. I've collected together some of the specific chapters, here's the Blood Angels. This bunch of tactical marines is quite impressive
Next, Astorath the Grim. I do like this model and the armour based on Vlad the Impaler's armour in Bram Stokers Dracula. What was interesting, and unfortunately just out of shot, was a second Astorath that was nigh on identical to this one. Who knows how many 'studio standard' miniatures for each special character exist?
The Sanguinor, another awesome figure and paint job.
Here's one of the Forgeworld large scale Marine sculpts painted up in Death Company colours
very nice to see more from your trip. I love there paint jobs on Astorath and The Sanguinor but i just don't dig the model for The Sanguinor. Witch is funny considering I have done 2 conversions of saint Celestine over the years with wings that are very close to the pose on that model and loved them (one was for my Girl friend who later became my wife and the other was for my nice when she was one year old) but still the paint job they have executed on that guy is wonderfulReplyDelete
