I’ve no idea where this model originates from, I found it in a box of old models I was sorting and thought it looked like an easy win. Any experts in old lead want to point me in the right direction?
To be honest it’s a bit… erm… rubbish. Maybe I just got a duff cast but the face(s) especially are pretty mushy and there’s a massive mouldline which runs unerringly through the few decent details there are. I did the best I could with it, although the latter proved impossible to completely remove. I reckon it’s passable from a distance, if you stand about 5 miles away it actually looks ok. Anyway I think I gave it more time and effort than it deserves but its done now so I’ll pack it away and think no more about it!
It’s often said that there are no good men in the galaxy of Warhammer 40k, but now at least there is one good boy! Yes I couldn’t resist painting little Aximillion, the faithful dog who accompanies the Elucidian Starstriders from the Kill Team; Rogue Trader box. Until I get the rest of the crew done he can act as a regimental mascot for my little Imperial Guard collection, and can surely sniff out trouble in the Underhive as well.
He’s definitely an interesting and challenging model to paint, he’s just so small that I really needed to adjust my style with starker highlights, my usual muted look would have blended to mud unless the viewer actually pressed him into their eyeballs. Despite this he was still a very quick and easy model to do, there’s just so little of him that it doesn’t take much time to get him painted.
