It feels like I’ve been
whining criticising a lot about Games Workshop’s new Apocalypse 40K formations recently. Still, here’s another one I’d like to throw out to you. The Space Wolves (and Space Marines) Librarius formation. Or, rather, their ‘Eavy Metal Paint Job.
#1 – Space Marines Librarius vs. Space Wolves Librarius
For some reason, these Space Wolves have my photoshop sense tingeling. Is it just me?
#2 – Games Workshop’s ‘Eavy Metal Team
Now, I know that many of the cool painters out there love to hate Games Workshop’s ‘Eavy Metal team, or at least the work they do. Still, if it weren’t for the wonderfully painted miniatures from the ‘Eavy Metal Studio in the White Dwarf back in the day, I probably wouldn’t be in the hobby.
To this day, I greatly enjoy ogling new releases, such as Forge World’s latest offering from today, for the nice paint job the pro’s put on them.
I certainly don’t want to be the guy bashing GW’s painting-team for things they don’t deserve.
But these three Librarian’s, which appear in both bundles, just don’t look hand-painted to me.
Are do they?
Couldn’t they have painted another 3 Librarians in Space Wolves colours? Or borrowed a few from one of their Studio armies? Seems like a step backwards to break out photoshop over the real brush and paint, no?
Or am I simply not giving a wonderfully matching paint job a hard time it doesn’t deserve?
Let me know what you think!
