With all of the Old Line Massacre hubbub going on, I've neglected to post some photos of my progress for the NOVA Open Charity Foundation army raffles. For that I apologize. My role in this year's effort is an interesting one. Not only do I get to contribute this squad of Centurions, I've also helped guide both the Ultramarine and Tyranid teams. Over the next six weeks you can expect to see quite a few posts about our progress.
Some of you may remember this conversion I did last year, stripping back some of the bulk of the gun arms I wasn't particularly fond of. Well, this conversion inspired Erik Jung to build the Imperial Fists Centurion you see below. I liked the fluidity of Erik's conversion so much, I asked if I could steal it for this project. Erik gave me his blessing. You can even recognize the same pose he used in my Sergeant : ) The cables are the metal power cables from Dragon Forge.
The other very cool thing about this project is that we'll all be using these bases. My friend, Thomas Wynn, teamed up with Justin McCoy from Secret Weapon Miniatures to create this line of Omega Bases. Not only did SWM cast them up for the two complete armies, but they are selling them now. 50% of every sale will be donated directly to the NOCF, so buying these cool bases helps out our chosen charity too - Doctors Without Borders.
Of course, buying raffle tickets puts you in the running for some fantastic looking armies too ; )
Until next time, have fun and keep painting!
