With the release of the new Imperial Guard codex, priests got a bit better for sure. This model is my brother's priest from an Inquisitor campaign we did years ago. I agreed back then to paint it for him. It may be hard to tell, but the robes are wet-blended brown like a monk's robes. It actually started out as a rusty red but the years showed their wear and it was really chipped. I could not match the color and I was about to paint a Techpriest next so I switched it to this brown. This model really was nice to finally finish painting after almost 6 years.
|His name is Fr. Raul Santiago and back in the campaign he had quite the penchant for being set on fire. Poor guy.|
|The chainsword is still as it was when I first painted him years ago, as is the book staff.|
|He has a lot of nice details on the backpack. All sorts of weapons and gear and books. Lots of books.|
This set of pictures really shows that I need to upgrade the lighting I use or upgrade my camera. Or both. We will see what I buy first.
