MiniMasterpieces - 40,000 by Aerion-the-Faithful MiniMasterpieces - 40,000 by Aerion-the-Faithful
So...

I've neglected the Dark Millenium long enough, methinks! And having recently been featured in Mr. Abnett's blog with my famous Eisenhorn image ( [link] ), I thought it is due time I paid my respects to The Emperor for all his help in my career :D

These two MiniMasterpieces were completed a while ago, but I've been given permission to post them up just recently as they were for an exclusive client setting up a big wargaming event.
As you'll all appreciate there's no Space Marines in them which is why I'm so proud of the lil' pieces! I was really challenged to bring Catachans, Tyranids, Tau and Eldar to life in so small a space, but I think I did all the races justice.
Catachans were never an Imperial Guard option I liked, but I must admit that making them manly men look bad ass was terribly fun! As for Tau, well, it's been LONG since many of you hardcore fans have mentioned they'd look good in my style and they apparently do. Eldar I had tackled before, but never using vehicles, so that was a good kick in the butt to get to improving my skills with machinery.

So, I hope you enjoy these and let me know what you think! I know many of you Warhammer 40,000 fans will be excited so let's hear your thoughts.

Until soon!

Nic.-

PS.. These are slightly bigger in size than the MINIMiniMasterpieces I've been putting up recently. That's how I managed to fit more characters in them...

PS2.. The Emperor Protects! :worship:

Catachans, in a jungle you can find no better, but in mainline conventional combat id prefere an army that respects obediance.

Shouldn't it be the other way around?

Eldar with zippy racer jetbikes; Tau with patrol cars
