Crimson Fist Captain
by Kirill Kanaev
Holy hell! The first thing I want to mention about this model is that it is not at a larger scale than the regular Space Marine Captains you’ve seen elsewhere. This model is literally the standard, two-or-so-inches-tall model that we are familiar with on a day-to-day basis. I lack the words necessary to describe the detail in this model. The face shows true emotion, and has more detail than entire tanks that I’ve painted.
I also am always impressed by what I call “flat surface” work. In this case, it’s the cloak that has a mural painted on it that really wowed me. I also am a huge sucker for gems, and this guy’s completely froze.
And also, the guy kind of looks like Vladimir Putin. I don’t know why, but that makes this significantly better.
