|"Nul is one of the powerful Worthy warriors serving under the Serpent."|
This 63mm tall plastic “Wizkids” figure of Nul is miniature number 106 from the Marvel “Heroclix” Fear Itself expansion and depicts the Breaker of Worlds following his escape from the magical hammer his father, Cul Borson, had transformed him into. "A problem for the latest incarnation of the Defenders", the 'living avatar of evil' first appeared in the July 2011 issue of “Fear Itself” and was created by Matt Fraction and Stuart Immonen.
Bestowed with super strength, the god was super-glued upon a 40mm circular base and primed with three layers of “Citadel" Abaddon Black so as to make the sculpt's surface as smooth as possible. The immortal then had his eyes and sharp teeth 'picked out' with "Vallejo" White and his mouth subsequently stained with "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade.
|"The Hammer of Nul fell to Earth after the Serpent called a series of hammers to awaken the Worthy."|
With such a simple paint-job completed, I thought I'd spend some additional time pigmenting the infamous Hammer of Nul, which originally "fell to Earth after the Serpent called a series of hammers to awaken the Worthy." This disconcertingly bendy plastic model was super-glued to one of the 40mm thin-lipped circular bases I use for all my objective markers and undercoated with "Vallejo" Dark Sand.
The entire weapon was later washed with a fair amount of "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade and dry-brushed using some (more) "Vallejo" Dark Sand. Finally, I applied a combination of "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna and Strong Tone Quickshade by "The Army Painter" to its straps, and used a couple of coats of some watered-down "Citadel" Abaddon Black to part of its head and long handle.
|"Toon Realms" WIPs - Eight of Grove's Shrubs are currently being progressed|
As a result I am now looking at making some significant progress on my first 'proper' submission to the AHPC in the guise of eight Grove's Shrubs by "Lucid Eye Publications". These "Toon Realms" sculpts will help 'fill out' my collection of Entlings to the point where I'll be able to field two units of Lesser Warbeasts as part of my Gondor/Fangorn army for "Dragon Rampant"...
