Now as many of you will know, I’m a complete nerd (no news to you I’m sure as you read my miniatures blog) and I like watching videos on YouTube as I paint. One of my favorite series is Crash Course World History, and i highly recommend it to everyone.
Now I expect your trying to work out why this is relevant, let me explain. There are often moments where things sync up well and connect perfectly. I was watching the video on Imperialism whilst working out what to paint next, and part way though that (10:22 in particular) the video is discussing the Maxim Machine Gun and how it helped a lot. It also had the excellent rhyme “Whatever happen,s we have got, The Maxim Gun and they have not” and as Jon Green said those words, I spotted the bigger half of this dynamic duo, the hulking trollkin, Bull.
So as i said, some things just sync up perfectly.
Bull is a very interesting figure and also counts as 0.5 of one of my units from the CGF painting pledge for November. Again this is a RPG Character in the fluff first, having starred on the front of the old IK RPG Fluff Book with Dannon (who’ll be coming soon)
A gain, a few common colours to tie him in with te army as a whole, I’m looking forward to seeing how they pan out as a unit.
As for the rest of the Good Guys, I’m just starting to work on the Gun Mage core of my army, Order of the Amethyst Rose pictures coming soon
