The Crimson King's Banner

Miniature Painting proper will take over this blog for awhile. I will amend it with updated photos as the quality of my documentation increases, or upon my flight of fancy and/or spirit of whimsy.

For now, let us look at the following, a banner painted to accompany the Crimson King, Exalted Champion of Tzeentch...

Warhammer Fantasy Banner based on the album cover of King Crimson's first album

Based, of course, on the first album of King Crimson, titled, In the Court of the Crimson King.

Colors used include, but not limited to, Mordian Blue for banner base followed by Mechrite Red for face base coat, along with generous amounts of inks and Dheneb Stone and Ice Blue for mixing into highlights. All of these colors are now "out of production" as of this post (and not soon after finishing this model--2012--in fact).

Where, one might ask, is the King himself? Well, let us leave that answer for another day...
