Look what came in the post!

I just wanted to share this little gem that I got in the post this morning. I ordered a Goldar the Barbarian from Reaper after seeing it on a Beast of War ‘On the Table‘ episode. Whenever I roleplay or play games like HeroQuest (yes I still play HeroQuest) or play MMORPGs I almost always play the barbarian or warrior. However, in my mind there are very few really great muscle bound Barbarian models out there, so when I saw this I jumped at the chance to get one.

Although I think the model is great as it is I did buy it with the intention of tweaking it somewhat, a new weapon, slightly altered pose and improved loin cloth for starters. I didn’t know what the scale of this model would be I just hoped it would look nice on the tabletop, but when I got it this morning I realised that is the perfect scale for an unarmoured Truescale Space Marine. I’ll still be making this one a Barbarian character model, but if I find any need in future for an unarmoured Space Marine I know exactly where to start from.

    Holy crap that is perfect… Ever since I’ve really started to enjoy modeling I’ve wanted to make a diorama of a Space Marine being armored by a bunch of servitors (I promise this idea came long before this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XIi0Pe6ZHc but it’s basically the same concept).
    I have neither the skill (well… not YET) nor the money to make it happen but I really hope you decide to steal the idea and make it awesome. He’s even in a great pose- just strip the weapon and cover the legs with armor- he could be glaring at a servitor that dropped a piece of armor.

      Very much what I was thinking, although I’m tempted to say it’d make an interesting experiment to use him as an armature on which to sculpt a suit of Power Armour.

        If you go through with that please photodocument well. It’s something I might try myself and I’d like a reference from someone who knows what they’re doing.
