Hook finished

First finished mini for a very long time, hopefully it wont be that long before the next one emerges.
Hook here is the second of my Void Pirates, and I'm quite happy with the way he ended up. Trying to get a brutal, non cartoony swashbuckling look in to these. Cheers.

Long overdue painting update on Hook. I think he's actually coming along quite nicely.

Hooks in you - hooks in me

Actually I figure that this guy only listens to Iron Maiden!!! Though Hook seem to take a rather slaneeshi road - I did not plan for that at all. Doesn't look wrong though!

Different kind of hobby

No, I have not given up on little plastic men. However I have hit a bit of a slump and mojoloss, making progress slower and updates further apart.
In the same time I have started a new hobby, with a course last weekend - and I have been trying to read up on stuff for that - metalworks, woodtypes and such. This was the end result

Step 3. Lighter drybrush

Step 4. Heavy wash

Step 5. Stippling orange and green.

Step 6. Light drybrush

Step 7. Highlight drybrush

Step 8. Heavy wash - repeat for darker color.

Truly nasty looking

To be honest I have been really impressed with the Tzaangors, I think GW has really hit a nightmarish combination of beaks, horns and archaic looking bits - very well done. Therefor I didn't really want to change too much with the first one here, rather just experiment a bit with the mini - get to know it so to speak. Of cause I would rather be caught dead than just making a standard mini so some small alterations are in line - which should also take it a bit away from the deamon look and fit it into my Void Pirates. Gamewise I figure it with fit right in as a beastman.

Don't just stand there - evolve!!

Had a lot of comments on this in various places, and amongst other things,  the legguards were a big issue. They have now been dremeled out and bent into shape. The sword has also been repositioned and he has been given a new gun - much better IMO.
