    Hideously beautiful. contagiously pretty. disgustingly nice. blightful elegance. Sickly stylish. infectious glamor. Nauseating exquisiteness.

    Cheers bud, I'm loving it, totally different to painting fantasy and it's harder than I thought.

    Now is the space marine head going to be a Blood Angel :rolleyes:

    Really amazing work, that plague marine is really coming to life (or decaying depending on your point of view). It is amazing seeing the painting progress as you keep adding more and more to the miniature. Can't wait for a bunch of them to be finished, but I can only imagine how long it will take!
