2016 Imperial Space Marine had some cheeseburgers

2016-04-18 Khaiell

During the April 16-17, 2016 Weekend at Games Workshop stores you had a chance to get a special edition remake of the original 1985 Space Marine model. The new version is substantially beefier than the original and the difference is much more striking than the one between the original Mk. 4 marines and their 'Betrayal at Calth' reimagining

Picture described below

A lot of fantasy and dark SF models and buildings are decorated with parchments covered in blackletter, Gothic script. Is this something rooted in real medieval art? Oh yes! But please use the real historical "fonts" and not a contemporary wedding invitation blasphemy »

Do you know Humbrol 130 and Vallejo Metal Medium? They reflect light differently to standard paints and offer new possibilities. Like replicating the old and missed by many Boltgun Metal effect. »
