This is the end, my friend.... of Belial!

I dont have school next week so I was able to pull a lazy this weekend and sit around doing who cares what! Rent SPACE MARINE from the RedBox for $2 dollars and beat it, check! 99% complete my Belial model, check!


A note on the cape: I really regret not repairing the tattered edges and holes with green stuff. I got lazy, and somehow rationalized the war torn look. REGRET IT!!! I spent a lot of time trying to decide what designs I was going to do. Hence the red X on the inside. Lame? Maybe but good enough for something barely visible. What I really like is the "art nouveau" design on the back of the cape. I am absolutely in love with that stuff. The second picture was a finished picture until I got to thinking that those wings really represented lizard or daemon wings and not the angels of death that this army is being modeled behind. I wanted that to be a re-occuring symbol but I realized with the feathered wings everywhere else, that it wouldnt look coherent. SO... I painted over it and added some color. The two sea gull heads are supposed to be the aquilla eagle heads with one blind eye. Whats the official story behind that anyway?



On a side note, does anyone know anything about the last Soul Drinkers book. What the hell is taking Ben COunter so long? I want to know what heappens to Sarepedon!!!!!!!
