Adam Wier is here to share some incredible work again.
I absolutely love the shrine skull finish on Roland – a controversial choice in our group of players and the Owl, wow!
As March is just beginning, I thought it would be a good time to update everyone on the progress of the Church of the Red Athenæum, primarily showing you new pictures of models already featured on Iron Sleet in a less complete form.
The first two Sisters of their military arm, the Order of the Crimson Hour, are complete and ready to be painted. They were the first models I based, and I decided to make it look like they were standing on a stone tiled monastery, using pieces of plasticard.
I also did a substantial amount of work on Roland and his vox-owl companion (Bronwen). Most of the work done on Roland was adding additional sensors and cables, to make his lack of a head more convincing. I also started to create a little shrine to hold his skull above his head, to see if it was something worth pursuing. At the moment I am leaning towards not using it, but would love to hear what people think. His owl has come a very long way from when he was first shown here. I decided I wanted him to be based separately, and used it as an opportunity to explore some of the imagery Thistle has been using one some of his recent art (notice the skull tree!).
This past weekend I finally I created the first normal member of the Church. This member is fully committed to feeling the pain of the Emperor, having removed his right hand and eyes.
Life is suffering.
