Random Model.. Empire Wizard

Right, so the week is over, I am back in Istanbul ( not that you can tell with the English rain we seem to be having at the moment ), and I have a tooth ache that could take down a dinosaur. Yes, a great start to the week, considering that I slept for about 30 minutes last night due to aforementioned tooth ache.

Anyway.. the wife let me have time to myself ( due to me being apparently cranky ) on Sunday after getting home from a week in England. So I have some time to clean up the painting desk, and work on a random model. Why random? Well, it was a friends of mine's birthday a week or so ago. Although we threw him an impromptu party, there were no gifts.. so in tradition of.. well.. this year? I bought, and painted him up something. Considering that he just bought an Empire Battalion, I figured he could use a wizard. Who can't use a wizard in Fantasy these days?

So yeah.. a quick couple hour paint job on this guy..





As always, tried a few new things with it. Some turned out well, some not so much, but in the end I think I like him, and I hope my buddy does as well. I think with the fur glove, and cloak, he could be a Beast Lore wizard, but that is just a guess.

Also, after meeting up with my Project UK client, I have batch 3 at home now. Currently sorting, prepping, assembling, and figuring out what I have stepped in with that batch. Some very interesting models, and designs in it. Lots of metal pieces, some resin, and a few plastics. Will be an interesting batch to say the least, and I look forward to diving into some of it, and others, well.. will see.. But I can say that there are a lot of models form the Warmachine range in it, and those I am quite excited to play around with.

Cheers for now, enjoy the Monday. I have a busy morning, and an even busier afternoon to get through. Oh and I really should go to the dentist before I take someone's head off at the office today!

    1. Tooth ache went south quickly.. had to go and get a root canal done, hence the delay in replying. Spent most of last night in agony.. so turned it into RAGE painting time!!! Thanks for the comments Ian.

  4. Glad to see you got home eventually. Sorry about the toothache. Your weather (briefly) made the news here as the Balkans are apparently under a ton of snow and it was all heading your way...

    Looking forward to seeing what you tackle first.

    1. No to snow in Istanbul!!! The traffic is bad enough as it is!

      As for your third batch, it is in the assembly process currently. This batch will probably hold the most metal models I have worked on in a long time ( since the DE comms at least ).
