Fulgrim – First Confirmed Picture

Shamelessly stolen from the Bell of Lost Souls forum, here’s the first confirmed picture of everyone’s favourite post-human deviant.

I really wish I were going to the HH Weekender as I’d love to get my hands on one of those Davinite priests for my Chaos army.

Khârn you dig it?

I’d say that’ll be the last Khârn-related pun but you know I’l lying 😉 Anyway, today I started work on the first character for my Chaos Marines and it had to be Khârn. While my Heralds of Desolation are (more or less) a Chaos Undivided mob, I love the background of the former Warhound Legion Captain not to use him.

As you can see, I’ve only just begun construction but thus far I’m impressed. Some people don’t know that this model first appeared in 1995 during the prime of the game’s second edition, while many models have been quite righty superseded, I think that this sculpt stands the test of time.

Finecast has definitely given the old boy a new lease of life. Many do complain about the far too frequent casting errors and yes this model was not perfect, there was a medium sized bubble on the torso but nothing that couldn’t been repaired with some Green Stuff and some patience. That said, the details were crisp and there was only a small amount of flash to clean.

I’m somewhat busy tonight so full assembly will have to wait for tomorrow. Can I get it ready for Miniature Monday?

Yes I Khârn!

(Still not sorry!)
