Ciaphas Cain with Base

Here's the finishing touch I was referring to in the last Cain post.

JJ painting, this is a Ciaphas Cain Imperial Guard commission.  Lane texted me several days ago wanting me to paint the name Ciaphas Cain on the base.  Told him I have a better idea.  When he picked it up Fri night he said the base was a better idea.  He was impressed and quite pleased with the base.

Detail that seals the deal.

Thanks, Zab, for making me challenge myself to make better bases.

  1. Awesome. Good job.

    1. I made a comment about preferring a darker blue. I have to say, with that base, it would look wrong if the blue was darker. This looks great!

      Only one thing: Blue uniform, red cape and stood on ice. I think we've just found Ciaphas Cain's secret identity.

    2. Really do appreciate the compliment. Not sure if a darker blue would help pull the blue out of the snow/ice more.

      Ciaphas Cain maybe the Man of Steel, that's only because he runs an armoured company. Clever joke. Kudos
