Sippin' on Paint Water goes to Mawdryn

Happy New Year to you all!

I hadn't intended to post until tomorrow, DYHAF's first birthday / anniversary or whatever the blog equivalent is. But I had to at least do a quick post to share this pure awesomeness. After seeing my last post on the Druids of my home brew Space Marine Chapter, the Spears of Mawdryn, Chris over at the superlative (and superbly named) Sippin' on Paint Water decided to make one.

Where I did a Druid of the Stave (Librarian), Chris went for a Druid of the Scythe (Chaplain-Apothecary) - and my word what a job he did, even though its still work in progress. I am very, very impressed (understatement). Chris absolutely got it spot on - and I love the sculpted Chapter badge. I urge you all to check it out immediately (and the rest of the blog if you've somehow managed to miss it already).

For a little fluff snippet on the Druids, please check out my last post.

I'll be back tomorrow with a few hobby updates of my own hopefully.

Chris' utterly incredible interpretation of one of my Druids

  1. There were a lot of words of praise in that article, I think I'm doing the internet equivalent of blushing at the moment. I'm very pleased that you like what I've got so far, it's a risky thing working with someone else's ideas. Too often the concept can get lost along the way, I'm sure you'll like what comes out of the finished project.

    1. Definitely well deserved sir. I can definitely agree with that from being on the other side if the fence, but as I say it's spot on. There's definitely room for slightly differing interpretations within the Chapter if needs be, inconsistency is a good thing - hopefully that's a strength if I may be so bold lol

  3. I've already commented on SOPW and said how brilliant it was, but seeing it here again lets me comment once more. A great model but more importantly great fluff. The first believable, enjoyable Space Marine fluff I've ever seen. Looking forward to the Palladians facing them in battle!

    1. I take that as high praise from your good self sir, thanks very much. I'm glad I'm finally getting the fluff onto the table as it were (and I still need to upload the proper overview document). Looking forward to a game and maybe one day we'll even be allied for a battle or two lol
