The finish line is now in sight for this mini. I just need to highlight up the black and he'll be done. With better light outside today I thought I'd get some photos from different angles to show him off a little.

Progress has been kinda slow on this mini mainly down to me not feeling like painting as the cold I've got is playing havoc with my sinuses. But I've finally got to a point where there's something worth showing. I'm hoping to have him closer to completion by the end of the week.

Spent a few hours this evening cleaning and assembling one of Forge World's fabulous Ivanus Enkomi Minotaurs Chaplain mini's that was very kindly sent to me by a good friend in the US of A. The detailing on the mini is astounding and it fit together with the minimum of fuss. I decided to reverse his pose on his base to make him more intimidating as befits one of the spiritual leaders of the Adeptus Astartes. Although I've had the mini for a few weeks now, its taken.me this long to decide how to paint him, but after a lot of thought I think I've figured it out, suffice to say, although it borrows elements from and is influenced by the 'official' Forge World scheme, it'll be something a little different yet wholly fitting...

Still very WIP (and likely will be for some time until i can get a hold of the next lot of bits i need for him) I didn't come up with the idea of a legionnaire leaving the field of battle victorious until after i bought the legs/torso of the Forge World Captain but I think the idea is working fairly well. Most of the inspiration came from a piece of artwork in the World Eaters Index Astartes article showing a World Eater Legionnaire carrying his chainaxe in one hand and the heads of his enemies in the other.
