As many of you are no doubt the same I’m a huge fan of John Blanche and all his art. In fact there isn’t a piece of his work that I don’t like.
His vision, his art is basically what the 40k world looks like to me.
One of my all time favourite pieces of his is The Gunslinger –
She looks so melancholy. So resolute and content with her lot in life. It’s as if she’s saying… “bring it on”
Today I woke up feeling compelled to see if I could make the model version of this amazing post apocalyptic art piece.
I scavenged through vast amounts of bits to find just the right pieces. This actually took a whole lot longer than usual because I wanted the mini to be as close to the picture as possible.
It was important to me to get the stance and the colour scheme right too so it could be instantly recognisable.
One major flaw you might notice is that “she” became a “he” and I don’t mean in a transgendered way. I just didn’t have the right female head so maybe, just maybe he is her twin?
It was definitely a challenge and tonne completely honest I’m not 100% with it but I think overall I did ok.
The weapons were fun to make and the warpaint and eyes were fun too.
Let me know what you think gang.
