|Rip and tear.|
The Pilgrym event is getting closer and closer to a reality, and I have been trying desperately to finish converting the last few members of the Church. Today, I wanted to share with you one of these models, a character that my brothers and I have been working on for a while, both in concept and model execution. The entire design process was sparked by rediscovering a classic piece of John Blanche’s art from the Confrontation era. The central figure in the piece, a sanctioned bounty hunter, always held our imagination, a crazed ganger, reminding me of one of the Droogs from Clockwork Orange. The creepy frowning mask, the clean tunic and pants, the axe at his belt, the machine pistol in hand, and the noose around his neck, all make for a compelling character. We set out and create a character in his image, and Kirill Blokhin, the Church’s Acirgeon was born.
