While I was helping the Warmonger Miniatures crew pack for Salute just gone, I had the pleasure of seeing some of greens of the beastmen heads that Kev Adams is sculpting. There's some proper old skool chaos-y stuff going on here:
It's difficult to pick out a favourite but for sheer bonkers check out the two on the left of the middle row.
Another one I'd like to single out is the one on the top left, which you can see here in side profile:
Unfortunately I didn't quite manage to get it in focus, but there's something about the eye that gives a real look of melancholia, of a beast doomed to follow the path of chaos.
While I was wandering around Stoke Hall packing up various bits and pieces I happened to notice part of a painting sticking out from behind one of Bryan's sofas. Hang on I thought, I recognise that...
Bryan also produced a card that had been sent to him many years ago, that had another piece of original John Blanche art attached to the front!
I specially like 2nd left from top row , and those with twisted horns!ReplyDelete
I'd really like to play with some of those heads ! They're really characterful I agree and feel very organically chaotic.ReplyDelete
I think I'd have fainted seeing those incredible early Blanches... you lucky you ;)
You may get to see them too if you come to BOYL JB!Delete
Very nice, and thanks for the sneak peak! Did you get the impression that these would be available as heads by themselves (oh, the conversion possibilities!), or only attached to as-yet-unshown bodies?ReplyDelete
I think potentially yes. My understanding is that they need to work out the economics of doing this first though.Delete
Great news - here's hoping! Thanks, Steve.Delete
Marvellous, anybody with a penchant for converting beasties will be needing these.ReplyDelete
