Possible new look iconography for my Serpent Guard chapter of the Word Bearers?

Hi all,

It's amazing what you can do when you're locked in your hotel room after a long, long, long day at work.
What started as a doodle rapidly became looking quite hopeful:
What do you think? Perhaps more Dragon Guard than Serpent Guard? OR maybe it could be the iconography of my Chosen squad to denote their seniority amongst the Serpent Guard? hmmmm

More to come,


Tuesday, 14 June 2011 very tired....but the show must go on!

So, for the last two weeks, and the next five I have been plucked from my home and stuck in a hotel whilst on a job for work. As a result of the long, long hours and being away from home my hobby time has taken a beating. I did however this week manage to cram into my luggage (at the expense of clothing it seems) a variety of hobby equipment, enabling me to begin work on bases for my Serpent Guard:

I don't know if it's the delirium or the UHT milk in the hotel coffee but I'm stoked with how these are progressing. You'll notice in ammoungst the bases is the inspirartion for this creative flair? I fancy running some raptors in my Serpent Guard and felt they needed a vantage point to perch upon. With the release of the Finecast versions however I may be making ANOTHER Games Workshop purchase very soon as they would be substantially easier to mount than their metal counterparts!

One last purchase this week, which I managed to smuggle out of the house before the girl friend noticed it's appearance:

A squad of chosen perhaps?

Serpent Guard Rhino update

Hi all, sorry it's been so long since my last post. I've been struggling lately to get in much hobby time since a new project I'm working on involves being away from home for the next six weeks or so  :O( 

However, I did manage this weekend to get some free hand down on two more rhinos to join my existing:

I'm still not completely happy with these rhinos and want to design a serpentine theme pattern to apply down the sides of each. Maybe when I'm sitting in my hotel room this week I'll whip out the sketch pad and create a design.......only if I can put down 'The First Heretic' that is?! I just can't put this bloody book down, it's definitely the best book in the series since 'Horus Rising' for me :O) 

More to come,
