Big Brother

Another Arco Evisorator finished, this time a slightly bigger and meaner. This is the same dude I used to demonstrate the pale skin painting. I call him "Big Brother"...





I used a Bloodletter's body as a basis for this miniature. To give some contrast and weirdness, I made his other side slightly slimmer by making the arm wielding the chain blade a bit thinner. If you look closely, you can spot that this guy actually has three arms instead of two.

The back of the Arco is filled with junk; old trophy skulls hanging in ropes from the back hair, combat stimm tubes sticking out of his flesh and one a big canister of mysterious "=I= stuff" – who knows what kind of juice that thing holds within.

The base was once again painted by John Blanche. I really love the way the bright and vibrant red base brings these Arco Evisorators alive.

  1. Real, real nice. The base just pulls it all together. I found myself some crackle varnish the other day, but I'm still working to get that lovely effect.

    2. Thanks you so much for your answer John!! I am making some tests with Vallejo crackle medium, but is not easy to control the result. Thanks for your advice.

    3. I have not yet to tried the crackle medium. But seeing what John has done with his bases, I'm tempted to try it too...

  8. I really love your work and this one especially. I'm doing some chaos spawns to my chaos and using the rat ogres body to make my spawn but I want to mix them with other models. So I would love to use this guy as an base with changes to mix the units with the rat ogres. I hope you dont mind. :)
