|He does look more completed with the banner flapping behind him.|
|One banner done, and the other showing my rough WIP stage. Proof things can look OK at the end even when they look pretty dreadful part way through...|
|The one on the right more or less represents the original. The left one is my own creation.|
|They both look the same on the reverse side (allowing for wobbly freehand painting, anyway).|
|And now a few photos of the finished model, ready for battle!|
I was asked in the previous post how this model ranks up, and whilst it's not great with the overhanging bearers, I have found some positions alongside my old metal Longbeard models where he sits in nicely. So that is good news. Maybe I won't have to model up something specific to accommodate the throne in a unit.
On a different note but since I'm posting anyway, I thought I'd point out an interesting post on Rafazza's blog about the general horrors of the End Times and some of the probably reasoning behind it. I feel it makes some good points that might help some of the nervous people out there to put things a little more in perspective. I don't pretend to be comfortable about where things sit right now, but no doubt these things are happening for a reason and the situation could probably be worse. We'll see where we are once the dust has settled.
