When I was approached in August to convert and paint a Fulgrim in the style of Chris Borer's Slayer Sword-winning entry from the 2007 Chicago Golden Demons, I knew I had my work cut out for me.
I spoke with Chris to make sure it was ok with him for me to create this homage. He replied by reminding me, he had drawn inspiration from the John Blanche and Sam Cook artwork in the Horus Heresy artbooks, and gave his blessing. And so it was that the project began.
I knew I'd feel good about the model if I put my own spin on things. So, taking Chris's model as the guide, I tweaked a few elements to give it my own flavor. I also mounted him on a base from Dragon Forge's Ancient Ruins line. By adding a few spikes and roll of razorwire I was able to keep reasonably close to Chris's original vision.
I hope you like him. I know my client does, he has already commissioned a Lucius and a Standard Bearer.
I have quite a few commissions on my plate right now, that means you'll get to see some quite interesting stuff over the coming months.
