My commitment to the Oath Of Moment challenge we alluded to the other week is something of a cop out I’m afraid. With The Dark Throne Tournament now only a month away I’m using this part of the challenge as a motivation to get my first 1000 points of 13th Company Space Wolves finished. Now this is the first army I’ve EVER painted. Sure I dabbled with Bloodbowl figures and the ocassional plastic dwarf when I was a kid but this is a whole challenge in itself.

Since a very early age I’ve loved two things: to read and to draw. I was brought up on a lot of mythology and legends and that fed into a love of fantasy fiction, which in turn led to a love of fantasy art. I’d spend hours looking at books about Frazetta or Brom, and at school and college I decided it would be entertaining to take double art. It was a complete waste of time, other than for a few moments we’d touch on stuff like early renaissance religious pieces, and woodcut artists like Gustav Dore, in art history. Continue reading
