Took some better photos this morning in daylight. Very happy with this fellow. "Skjal the Penitent lifted himself over the ledge and heaved the bundle of metal objects on to the ground with a grunt. He counted them again for the tenth, hundred, maybe thousandth time. He had no way to tell how long had passed since he awoke on that carrion field, strewn with the corpses of his brethren. All he knew now was the call. He had heard a whispering in his mind. He did not recognise the voice, but it spoke of great wonders and items fit for the halls of Sigmar himself. Surely this was his Quest. The great power that might aid the war against the forces of Chaos must lie at the end of this voices promises. Surely.
Satisfied that the items were all present, he slung the bundle of artifacts over his shoulder and took in his surroundings. What lay before him was like nothing he had ever seen before, a forest of rust and iron. Where one would expect trees instead there were hundreds and hundreds of enormous mismatched swords, their blades driven into the Ashen soil; crossguards silhouetted against the Ashen sky like great cruciform omens.
Sighing, Skjal drew his sword; a relatively simple thing he had acquired on his trek for his own had been lost to him; and made his way towards the Forest of Blades."
The beginning of my Carcharodon allied Knights, House Voration! I'm very happy with the WIP of my Valiant, thanks to @taromodelmaker and @comradequiche for their knee and torso extender pieces. They make a huge difference, even headless, armless and "naked" the Valiant is already taller than my Gallant! #paintingknights#carcharodons#paintingwarhammer#warhammer40k
