Review: Luca Pina Penichet - Braided Dwarf Bust

So this is a piece that I have wanted to pick up the moment I saw it! Though it would be later after H&V shut it's doors, and I would claim it at Scale Model Challenge instead.

I got to meet the box art painter while at Monte San Savino though.. Ivan Hortal!

Heck he also has a plan for 2014 for painting projects, that I look forward to seeing come to completion!

Great to see the piece in person while at Monte! It is even more amazing in person than it is on the box art though. I also got to see another version of the piece while there..

This was painted by Toni Nieteo Cano, who is quite the painter! And I love how his came out and looked more like an escaped prisoner!

Lukas Wigging is also going to be painting up a copy soon and did his own unboxing recently!

Oh and then there is Ben Komets who is painting up a copy as we speak!

So it has a ton of references for me to use when I get around to painting it now!

But it is a very small piece.. going to be very interesting to paint up and if I can do it justice as much as these other amazing painters have done!

Hope you enjoy it!

Review: Reaper Bust "The Grudge"

So this was another piece that is sitting in my collection at the moment.. especially since I just picked it up recently for a semi "secret" project that some might be able to guess now.

I saw this piece at Monte San Savino painted up and had to say that it was awesome looking!

I am even more impressed after seeing the quality of the piece. Considering that the chainmail is sculpted like it was done by me :) Cause this is pretty simple chainmail sculpting ( comparing it against what Raffa did on the Brekk bust ).

The box is quite simple. Cardboard box, and some bubblewrap inside. Not the best packaging but thankfully the bust is a single piece.

The material it is cast out of it strange. It feels more like plaster than resin, and the color is white. This is not primed, but the color that it was out of the box. Cannot say that I am impressed with it, but let us see how it does when applying some paint on it.

Though the bigger sections of metal will be nice to play with. Some aging and weathering can work wonders on it though. And the beard is sculpted nicely enough which will be a redeeming quality compared to the chainmail.

Simple back to save on resin/plaster ,so will be painted straight black. But the chainmail just makes me weep :'(

In the end, it will still be a nice piece to paint up. Let's see how it goes once I get some primer on it.

Well this has taken far longer than it should have taken to get these 2 guys finished up! Since I have been sitting on these 2 models for far far farrrrr too long it seems!
