Do you like Knights? Do you like Adepticon? Do you like crushing your enemies, seeing them driven before you, and hearing the lamentations of their women? Then you will love this!
If you answered yes to at least two of those three questions, then check out this #bringinghobbyback Cerastus Knight Atrapos by Evan “Gothmog” Valdyke of Sepulchre of Heroes.
Hey there Spikey Bitzerkers, Gothmog here with my Cerastus Knight Atrapos, ala Adepticon themed! Why adepticon themed? Well for a few reasons but mostly because their cog and skull emblem is awesome! Oh, and this guy STILL isn’t named (even took him to BAO). Just haven’t though of a great name for him yet, so if you have any cool suggestions, please comment!
Sharing some WIP photos with you all today too. If you are keen to notice this was done 100% BY HAND. No airbrushing. Not that airbrushing isn’t completely valid or can’t get wonderful results, but it you are sitting there without an airbrush and saying “man I just can’t make my army look good painting by hand,” let this guy be a little inspiration. None of the icons were penciled out. None of the lettering blocked and grid marked. Just old fashion steady hand and patience. Also, thin your paints (or buy premixed airbrush paints and paint them directly on. Several coats of red were done via this method). Last thing before the gallery begins, this is the first time I used sharpie tech for bolts, and now I am never looking back. Seriously, a silver sharpie is 90% faster and super easy to use, with almost no rework required afterwards.
Sure the pilot cost 14 GBP extra, but I figured if I was going to get and do a Cerastus Knight, I was going to go full in and do it right. #bringinghobbyback style
