Today was a rare day in the North West of England, it was a nice day (mainly) and I was off work! And so I took the opportunity to take some photos outside of my Knight as I finished her base the other day. The base was actually a bit of a challenge as it's … Continue reading In the light.
So finally finished painting this beast of a model, it taken some time but I must say that I have really enjoyed working on it. I still have the base to do and when that is done I probably take some more photos with and I'll try outside next time as although it fit in … Continue reading The big one
