I never thought I'd suffer from "painter's block" but I've struggled to pick up a brush with any heart at all. However, I've forced myself to get back to it, so here's a photo of the results.
Okay, so this isn't usual Trebian territory. He's 28mm tall, he's a bit muscled and there's no Ronseal varnish in sight. Although I can't do that GW paint style, I'm really pleased with the outcome.
