I thought I might share some shots of the amazing models that V creates in his spare time. The detail that goes into them is truly amazing, and requires more patience than I could ever have - they are truly artworks, in my eyes. My inner geek loves this sort of thing so much!
These are just a few (a very few!) of the many created by V...
I love this one because its so gross - especially the warty things on the tongue of that freaky little monster. Awesome.
Being a massive Lord of the Rings fan, I must admit I am more than a little partial to a bit of Sauron the Deceiver...
And a cave troll!
This won second prize in a model painting competition. Keep in mind that the combination of my dodgy point-and-shoot and blogger sadly washes out my photos - the colours in this are rich and amazing
And the detail is mindblowing
Many, many, many hours went into creating this piece, which made it through to the finals in the inaugural Golden Demon competition - the Ice Dragon. The scales on the wings are all painted free-hand
Again, so much of the richness of the colour is lost in these shots...
