Anyway, last week I painted up the figure for the anti-hero challenge, but at the last minute decided the paintjob wasn't good enough. A few gentle glazes to blend together some of the rougher transitions here he is, a little bit late and 50 points less than he would have been last Monday (damn you perfectionism!!). I present... John Constantine (on the left).
You can see in this photo that he's based on the other Curtgeld model, Spike. A bit of greenstuff later and we have the master of magic. Not always the nicest of men, but someone you want on your side if things start to go a bit pear shaped. Curt, it is up to you if you want Spike or John as your prize for this year. Or... you can have both for an extra 50 points ;)
Finishing off Familia Callainus we have our Retairus
Here he is with the rest of his posse from last time
And in the other, rather bloody corner we have Familia Purpura
Oh, no contest. 50 points is a small price to pay for both Constantine and Spike. Consider me well and truly bribed!
Congratulations on getting all of the Jugula gladiators done. They look brilliant (and very chunky)! Nonetheless, Constantine would TOTALLY own that Retairius without even taking his hands out of his pockets. :)
