=I=Munda :: The Knight Errant

The Crusader, The Fanatic, The Brand-Bearer.

Another model, and thus another character, has begun to come together. While the Arbites Officer can sort of come and go, passing as a basic law-enforcement agent for different circumstances, the knight errant will be more in line with a named character, a fanatic of Ecclesiarchical righteousness or a hound at the heels of the corrupt. I liked the idea of a spear, but am leaning towards a brand with some sort of furnace-sheath.

For those who have seen the blog over the past week, you'll notice that I removed the last two posts. There is both good and bad to the last two waves of Space Wolves models, and while they may not be my cup of tea, I want this blog to be about the construction and inspiration behind the hobby, not opinion of business practices or miniatures aesthetics.

If folks have any thoughts, let me know.

Thanks for looking,

B. Wright

=I= Munda :: Arbites Officer

I've decided to stick with the 40k universe for the moment, but still have ideas for alternate sci-fi universes kicking around in my head. For now, I've begun work on a trio of Adeptus Arbites officers, though my focus has been on this particular fellow. Once I knew what parts I'd be using and had begun building, I made an image to help finalize the design and to get me thinking about my corner of the Imperium and how the many orders and offices of mankind interact.

As I continue work on the officer, I am also making a run down hover-car, to be used as scatter terrain and to finally get started on creating a stage for the models I work on. If anyone cares to, let me know what you think. I should have more to show in the next few days.

Thanks for looking.
