Old Stuff Wednesday - August: Crimson Fist Captain
Somewhere around 2007. I bought several of these metal Captain models a long time ago. I the intention to include them in my Cerulean Templars army, but never did. Then in 2006-7, I painted a number of one off pieces up just for fun. I later sold the bulk of them.
I remembered long ago painting a blue power sword with crackling energy and I definitely wanted to do that again. I think this sword turned out pretty good. I carried the color scheme over to the plasma pistol.
My favorite color is blue, so I'm a sucker for cool looking blue schemes and consequently have always felt that I paint blue very well. And having painted lots of Khorne over the years I think my painting of red gets a good depth and vibrancy in the color. I did hand paint the crimson fist symbol on the open shoulder pad.
I also hand painted it on the backpack.
Wish I would have done something different with the base. That was a bit of a let down.
I also hand painted the skull on the knee pad. Its a fun model and cool pose.
Until next time keep painting and building models.....
