On top of my other current commissions, a client contacted me with a request for a new terrain set - as quickly as possible, as well as possible.
A tall order! He wanted a full Realm of Battle, with a Fortress of Redemption and an Imperial Strongpoint (two Bastions and three Aegis lines). Oh, he said, and by the way, could you paint some Ultramarines for me, while you're at it?
No problem, said I.
What with this being to accompany an Ultramarines force, I thought I'd go for something with an Ultramarines theme. So, whilst it's still a traditional Dark Angels Fortress of Redemption, I decided to render it in a sandstone effect, lighter and more noble-looking than the traditional colours of the Dark Angels. The Realm of Battle will be rendered as a grassy plain, something like this:
Anyway, after spending two days doing pretty much nothing but painting brown, I'm going to go and do something else to let my brain wake up.
