If I had known that Friday afternoon would be the last time we spoke, there's a million things that I could think I'd have said. I never took a chance to thank you for your energy, or your generosity. I never took a moment to tell you how much I looked up to your cheerful, ever-positive attitude, the way even the worst circumstances couldn't get the best of you. I never once took 5 minutes to thank you for the opportunity to watch a young man reach the FMF and grow into not only a leader of Marines, but a brother who carried so many with him. Despite my being older, there was never a moment I didn't see someone to look up to when ever you were nearby, in whatever the situation. I'll never understand why young ones who have so much to give leave us so soon, but I know that you had a flame that burned so bright it could've lit a thousand fires.
I am going to miss you Austin, but I only hope that I can share the light you left in me with everyone I meet for years to come. Good ride cowboy. Good ride.
Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine,
Et lux perpetua luceat ei,
Requiescat in pace.
Spiteclaw's Swarm, First Rat
Had about an hour tonight so tidied up the desk while trying to think up what kind of colours to use. Decided on grey skin/fur, brassy armour and reddy brown cloth. - Reaper MSP Cloud Grey
- Vallejo Game Air Stonewall Grey
- Reaper MSP Burgundy Wine
- Vallejo Model Colour Black Red
- Vallejo Model Air Burnt Umber
- Scalecolour Decayed Metal
The photos are just quick snaps which will be followed by better ones when there's more to show.
The cloth was based with Burgundy Wine and then a few thin layers of Black Red were thrown on over some of the higher fold lines to see how it would look. Thinned some Black Red even more and used it as a wash over the tail and cheeks.
Next stop... Contrast.
Damn this book is good! I had to skip over it on my original read through of the Horus Heresy, it wasn’t ever on YouTube and just recently got put up on the Audio section of iBooks. Pulled me right in from the first minute I was always such a huge fan of the second book in the series and that was without knowing all of the backstory to the characters in that book which all starts in this one. Can’t wait to bust this bad boy out and then go back and listen to the second one again now having everyone’s story straight. #HorusHeresy#VulkanLives#Salamanders#WH30K#Warhammer30K#Warhammer#HardForHeresy#Warhammer40K#WH40K#AudioBookWorm
