Not A Cheap SLDF Lance
« on: 06 September 2019, 18:08:07 »
Just finished these Star League relics and they're on their way to the UK soon.

From left to right:

Beautiful work! And the damage details! Worthy paint for special minis.

Holy smokes, are those good.  The Behemoth is the best-looking one I've ever seen.  Top freaking notch!

Outstanding work B1BFlyer!

Crazy amount of weathering... How long did all of that take to do?

This is Gorgeous!
Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries

These, in the day when heaven was falling,      Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
The hour when earth's foundations fled,         They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
Followed their mercenary calling,               What God abandoned, these defended,
And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.
     
A.E. Housman

Thanks for the feedback folks.

Counting from when  I start to edge highlight, weathering and chipped paint, it takes about two hours each.

very crisp. It takes serious effort to make that old behemoth not look goofy.

The shading on the Behemoth gun barrels really makes them look *massive*
