There is a wisdom that is woe; but there is a woe that is madness.
-Moby Dick, by Herman Melville
There are things in the deep which we think we have lost; yet, they always return. One way or another.
My second Blue Whale Archer: Ishmael Salt.
For a second time, I decided to create a model based on Bruticus' awesome Blue Whale Pit Fighter. The first, Galen, was an awesome success... as a model. But he was a total failure as a hero: getting shot to pieces by a couple of Brethren with bows.
I really liked how this model turned out! The paint-job was immensely challenging, as I found it very difficult to match the original model I made (pro tip: don't paint drunk). But after some work, I adjusted it to my liking. The re-work made Ishmael look more weather worn than Galen, so I figure he is an older knight. Perhaps even ancient and white-bearded under all that armor. He fights on more out of rote, inelegant habit than passion. Like all who have dwelt in the madness of Mordheim for far too long.
Ishmael's huge bulk makes him a formidable opponent.
New, and awesome terrain provided by Blue Forge Terrain! It is simply amazing!
