This here is my very first model ever painted. At the time I wanted to do a Space Marine chapter called the Blazing Dragons (I was 12 at the time folks) and I had built all my models but had yet to paint them. I choose he first because, in my 12yo logic the sniper is the best guy in the game! It took me forever to paint just the basics but after a few talks with the local wargamers I got to the point were he is now. I had to make my own wash to darken the folds in his suit as well as learn to highlight over night. Sadly he is the only guy that was ever painted for the Blazing Dragons chapter as the draw towards Orcs slowly took hold of me.
However, I am glad to say the guy has a new home. He works for the Grey Knights now so watch out if you can Xenos!
