It was 11:30 last night when we finished our D&D session. I'd drank an entire pot of coffee throughout the evening and was not really in the mode for sleep. I found myself almost unconsciously reaching for the last gray plastic model in my Space Marines collection. I was up until 3:30 painting him and I'm largely pleased with how he came out.
Please note that my Space Marines are a speedpaint army... they're there purely for quick and fun paint work and for a different army to play.
As such, the quality on my Star Eagles pales in comparison to my Orks. I still think Mr. Mwitaji is awesome, though.
|The expressive face on the plastic Librarian model is really quite wonderful.|
|I love the layered textures on this model. It makes for a challenging|
paint job, but a very interesting model in the end.
|You'll notice some Grey Knight and Dark Angels bitz used here. I'm|
saving the flying war baby for my Saint Celestine model.
|Mwitaji's Brand can incinerate even the mightiest of foes in one swing!|
|Sgt. Taia in this picture represents the usual paint scheme for the Star|
Eagles. As the Chapter's Pyromancer, this Mganga has chosen to tint his
armor red and don yellow, flame-retardant cloth.
