New lens!

I am testing new lens (or old one - I used to use it with my good old analog Canon) and it seems like a good occassion to post some pictures of my Aspiring Champion. A backpack is on it's place - as I promised it's similar to those carried by GW's noise marines. Heads on GW's backpack are usually gold, but here gold/yellow would probably distract too much, so I went with Caspar-the-ghost-like greys.

I've also decided to repaint the coat of arms. The Eye seems to fit chaotic Evil devotee style much better, doesn't it?

Also, I need to comment on the colour differences between previous and new pictures. It's always good to remember how much reprocessing can change the reception of a painted miniature. In case you wonder which pictures are more similar to the "actual" miniature - old or new ones - there is no true answer. :)

Painting white

It seems like a good moment for a new post!
I am now making an aspiring champion for the first of my chaos space marines squads (one of them was introduced here). It still needs some finishing paint drops and of course some missing parts. He's going to have a converted backpack - similar to those owned by GW's noise marines.
I probably should also repaint the coat of arms - it does not seem to fit into chaotic style at all.

I've decided to use this miniature to experiment with painting white clothes (and by white I mean white, not a very bright brown). It was tricky but I think that the effect is not bad. What do you think?

I am awaiting your comments! Please do share your opinions!
