Arco Evisorators IV-IX

Arco Evisorator, running, striding, maiming – a fierce, trembling vision, that is. Here are six of them, feeding their blades with flesh and blood, rushing with hunger for death in their cold empty eyes, murdering for the sins of their Mother.

Like the previous pair of Arcos, this pack was a commission work too. I really like doing these things as they are fun to put together and paint, and provide just enough challenge for my sculpting skills. I wanted the flock to have a sence of violent movement, so I made them look like if they had only one mission in their minds; murder and maim their foes. You be the judge if I made it or not ;)

The bases were once again made by John Blanche. The vibrant reds and oranges are very different to what you usually see in bases, but I think they work very nicely in these and really pop the minis out. Oh, and the crackling effect is just pure awesomeness!

What's next? The tale of the Arcos is still unfinished and I will be creating another creature to accompany these things. Then there's a commission Inquisitor that will follow and some wicked ideas what comes to my personal projects... busy times ahead.

Half a Dozen New Evisorators

The times have been quite hectic in the northern nests. I bought a house about two months ago and all the moving and settling down has made my life quite a hassle.

Despite the chaos, I've been able to put my studio up and running, though it is still a pretty rough version of my great vision. I'm currently working with the new lot of Evisorators, six new menaces to be exact...

Believe me or not, this is the biggest bunch of minis that I've ever worked with at the same go. It's all new to me as I've used to paint one mini at the time. This is interesting, challenging and educational process and it really feels like it's pushing my technique forward.

And here's a shot of my current workbench. I'm trying my best to keep everything neat and clean so that every time I have some spare time to give for the hobby I wouldn't have to start it by wasting the first fifteen minutes for cleaning. Minor detail but improves the effectiveness of the use of time.

There are three special pieces giving me company while I'm working over the workbench. When ever I raise my head to stretch my neck or have a though, I see these marvelous things in front of me and get this feel of impetuous push of inspiration that helps me put my best effort to what I'm doing.
