Les Edwards White Dwarf Cover Marine

The Les Edwards Space Marine is an iconic cover painting for White Dwarf 137...and I was thankfully gifted this fan sculpt for my birthday. 


It's was a joy to paint, and I've heard news that the Scavvies are being sculpted as well.  So keep a lookout.

I went with the original scheme and tried to get it as close as possible.

 

Get the posing just right....there ya go airborne! 





 Take that Scavvy scum!
 

Nailed it!

  4. Ohhhh! That's so f&%$ing awesome! I mean, the sculpt really gets the spirit of the illustration, but your paintjob brings it to life!

  5. One of my all time fav WD covers (And possibly the only time I actually liked a Blood Angel image.)!

    Great paint job and a lovely sculpt and damn, what I'd do for those scavvie figs were they to be released...
