This appears to be my 100th post, whoop de do! And what better way to mark this occasion than by painting up a Kev Adams mini....sorta. It's the one that I asked him to sculpt my likeness onto at BOYL this year. So how did I go about choosing which mini for him to work his magic on? I had an old Chaos Renegade languishing in amongst my lead pile for well over a decade, not knowing what to do with it, so I thought he'd be the best one for Kev to give head to. The next thing to think about was the face that I wanted. I could have asked him to sculpt my own, but seeing as I'm an ugly fucker I thought I'd choose a more handsome visage instead. Where did I look to for inspiration? LaTD of course!

head sculpt was chosen.

Adams to give him the proportions I was after.
And below is a little video of the final result. Instead showing you a bunch of shitty pictures, I thought I'd give this a go for a change. Let's see if it works hey;
I was going to write something obscene on the tank, but I wimped out. I also thought about writing "Heinz" on it too, but my freehand is pretty rudimentary at best, so I went with big chunky block letters instead. Anyway, I'm happy with how he turned out in the end. I'm really chuffed to have a custom sculpt, albeit just his head, done by the Goblinmaster himself. I haven't painted in ages too, so it was good to get back in the saddle as well.
