"Ride of the Valkyries" - Skyriggers - Part II

The duardin have developed new technology  and weapons of war, and now they sail the skies in their amazing airships, seeking wealth and plunder. Overlords of the Iron Dragon - C.L. Werner Great to see you back on The Art of Caesura! And now, the moment we've all been waiting for(...well, I've been waiting for it anyway!): the unveiling of my Skyfarers!  I've been working away on these guys for the past few weeks and am really thrilled with how they turned out, so can't wait to share them with you! Two weeks ago, though it may not have been obvious at the time, I showed you how I made the bases of these guys . Last week we looked at painting and magnetization, and today we just get to gaze at the finished product! As I mentioned before, I magnetized the heads of all these guys so that they could be Endrinriggers or Skywardens. I also magnetized the arms of the "Sergeant" so that he too could be either...or both! I built this first guy with the grapnel-launc

"Up, Up, and Away!" - Skyriggers - Part I

These skyborne, science-wielding duardin ply the skies in gun-laden ships in search of plunder and profit - Games Workshop Ahoy-hoy and welcome back to The Art of Caesura! Although last week's post may have seemed out of the (deep) blue (sea), long time readers might recognize that the subject matter for today's and last week's posts are actually very closely connected... Anyway, crypticness aside, today we're looking at the Skyfarers that I've been working on for the past few weeks. Today we'll be focusing on my near miss with insanity that was magnetizing these guys and painting them. Next week we'll have a grand unveiling of the finished dudes! If I ever get to play Age of Sigmar, I'd like to be able to use my Balloon Boys as either Skywardens (because they look cooler) or Endrinriggers (because they're better in the game), and with only a head- and arm-swap holding me back (nevermind those pesky sky-mines) I didn't think this would be too bi

"Tentacular Delights" - Hellmouth Tentacles

The Kraken stirs. And ten billion sushi dinners cry out for vengeance - Terry Pratchett Hello fellows all and welcome to another Friday on The Art of Caesura! Today on the blog we have a tentacular delight: the smaller appendages of the Hellmouth ! A couple years ago (almost to the day) I painted the main maw of the Hellmouth. I used that model for an appropriately epic base for Brokk Grungsson. Today I have the smaller "arms" of the Hellmouth...and we'll have to see what I plan on using them for...(nudge, nudge, wink, wink). Before we get going, I was looking back at my blog thinking "I feel like I've done quite a few tentacles on the blog" and bizarrely, I have! We've had the Hellboy Doom Tracker , The Hellmouth , the Tentacle from the Necromunda Underhive starter , the tentacles from the Conan kraken  (including bonus "Day of the Tentacle" tentacle), and finally Brokk himself !  That doesn't even include the actual kraken or the Dreadma
