This post is basically a plug for a mate but it’s also a hearty endorsement of an excellent new source of wonderfully gothic accoutrements for our hobby. Plus I just finished painting some skull-faced wildlife and that’s something everyone needs more of in their lives!
Followers of this blog will know I’m a long-standing fan of the blog Heresy of Us, especially Mark’s use of 3D printed components which he designs to include in his models. A new frontier has opened up in the hobby and, although I doubt that greenstuff is going anywhere, the arrival of a new creative medium is something to celebrate. Excitingly Mark now has a store, Black Edge 3D, where you can buy some of his designs, so I took the chance to get myself a set of his skullbirds as I’ve had my eye on them ever since I spotted them in pictures from the Chapel game last autumn.
They add a touch of the gothic to any 41st Millennium battlefield.
And of course they also look rather fitting in the darker corners of the Mortal Realms (or the Warhammer world if you’re old fashioned like me).
Of course, with birds like these, I wonder what the ornithologists look like? Food for some future creativity I suspect…
