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. 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
