Hello out there! Today I have for you many photos of the finished Hexfleet Virules army.
This army was converted by the owner over many years, and keeps a blog of his modelling work under the name Hexfleet Virules. Popular army blog, and for good reason as you will see. Once you see them, won't need to explain how much a treat they were to paint and thankful for the opportunity to do so, sharing our collaborated efforts here today. Hard to really put into words my excitement when setting up this army for photography, for what has been about 8 years of modelling for him to finally come to completion in full and in one moment. My biggest motivation and what I get the most enjoyment and rush from is the aspect of giving people what they can see in their mind, in reality. Every army is a surge of adrenaline at the finish line but the stakes and scope of this one are just off the charts. The best feeling in the world.
Working on these large projects you can really get to know a guy. Of course there is the conversation about scheming and ideas for the army, but in the busy time it often wanders to whatever else. Getting to know Mr Virules it turns out we shared a very similar childhood. Single children (well, for formative time at least for me), I lived very rural, he moved very often. We both entertained ourselves and found enjoyment and fun in playing with action figures and whatever we could find. Some of my best memories are using a chair as a Ghostbusters firehouse, getting lost in imagination not just because that is what was there but because I loved it. That's what miniatures have always been for me. Adult toys and being a big kid. With that in mind I was inspired to make this backdrop. See if you can spot all the references as I post more photos with time. Also Bill Murray quotes. I'm sorry in advance.
That's all for this time. See you soon!
