'Nostalgia' from KyleC - Warhammer Daemon
First challenge up, and Nostalgia is the theme.. since these are quite open this is my entry...
The piece is harking back to the early days of games workshop, and one of my bigger armies that I ever played. But this piece in particular was one that I have had in my possession for probably close to 15-20 years? And one that I wished to get painted probably twelve times over since then. Though never got around to it for one reason or another..
I wanted to paint it like I would have in the old days as well though.. bright garnish colors with a mix of real metals and different texture via varnish applications.
The base even is even something of a nostalgia for me as I started to work on it some years ago ( 3 or 4? ) and never found the right model or time to finish it :) Guess now was that time..
Well hope you all enjoy this piece.. might not be the best nostalgia piece out there, but it will suffice all the same for myself.. with the next ones being a bit more difficult for me to find perfect subjects for :)
