After painting two rather chilling models decision was made to work on something much more warm. This time I excavated supercool sculpt from Brigade Models - Mordred the Damned.
It's the second (and actually the last...) model in my collection from the Celtos line. Don't know why this game was never popular here - the sculpts are simply gorgeous: nicely detailed and full of character, perfect for gifts. And this is the reason I chose it:
My son is getting 9 years old in a few days and because he likes playing with miniatures I try to encourage him to get little deeper into the hobby.
Yeah, yeah... Daddy's gonna turn the kid into miniatures addict... 😅
It's the second b-day model I've painted for my firstborn - the first was Aragorn from Lord of the Rings (kiddo claims he still has it and it's still not broken! Huzzah!).
Since it's a special occasion model I put it on plinth instead of standard, gaming base. Besides there is much more space on the bottom for some birthday wishes. Here is is:
As mentioned before Mordred is the second model from Celtos I've painted so far - the first was Cernunnos which was finished just before moving to the previous flat, over 6 years ago. The model still stands proudly in the display case (it even made it into Brigade Models gallery!) and I still like it enough to give it fresh photos - old ones got f#cked by Photobucket... 😠
Happy birthday, Georgie! All the very best from your oldschool dad! 🤡
