I have been unfaithful to the blog, I'm sorry. If you've been following me on G+ you'd see I haven't been entirely idle but still that's inexcusable. I haven't been wanting to paint much because I haven't bought any new brushes recently, which is a terrible rut to get into; I did the other day and finished two more Astartes, so that's a thing I did.
As far as the IK is concerned, very slow. Almost no progress at all, but it's there in the background as an ongoing thing, which I wanted it for. I finished the avenger gatling cannon arm; the barrels proved so heavy I was compelled to drive a brass rod straight through the weapon to brace it.
I'm also in the process of making a thunderstrike chainfist. Yeah. I haven't got it to a point where I can show it here yet but just so you know, it's a thing.
So here we are, two members more of Thollr 2nd Flokk Sigmundr.
|The standard is magnetized for ease of painting/storage|
|There's a white heavy in there too|
Second is the musician, former Deathwatch Black Shield, Brother Anthem. Being a fairly important character --in my opinion-- I wanted to put a bit more time into painting him; also I used more drybrushing and typhus corrosion to reflect his dark(er) backstory.
|In case your wondering, it is meant to be a guitar|
|The oversized guard of vambrace was a tomb king's standard.|

And that's that I suppose, for now anyway. I've begun painting an assault weapon specialist and have many more half-finished space marines awaiting my attention.
