First of all – Vostroyans are incredibly cool. Even though they are.. you know.. I.G. Which reminds me that I haven’t shared with you one of my failed projects. Alas.. Here’s the story of the..

It had to be something special and it definitely needed to be a long-term commitment, supposed to commemorate and show-off the skills I had learned in my first year of hobbying.
Seeing as I’ve not had much time to put towards new modeling or painting, and rather than let my blog gather dust between current projects, I thought I’d at least try to do a once-a-week post looking back at some of the hobby work I’ve done prior to when I started this whole blog thing… Today, the Vostroyan Firstborn: I’ve dabbled in other guard regiments other than the Mordian 7th, and when GW first unveiled the Vostroyan line I picked up a mess of infantry, planning on having them serve double-duty as Skitarii for the Ad-Mech.
