Greetings Terrans, I’ve got quite a (a-hem) short post for you today…
These two wee scamps are ‘Rein and Raus’, the Rattling (aka Space Hobbit) twins that are one of the ‘goodie’ options for Blackstone Fortress.
Now, full disclosure… I really don’t like the whole barefoot Hobbit thing at the best of times, (sorry Tolkien!), but to then lazily port that stupid trope straight into 40k really grips my shit… (Really? Woolly toes too? Oh, do f*** off GW, why not give them a bag of Hobbit food too – oh you did… Brill.)
Still, that aside, these are actually really fun minis to paint – full of character, and with a decent amount of detail. I went with a general militaristic vibe, and I just followed my now usual ‘Contrast followed by Highlight’ approach. These two can hang with my Inquisitor warband when they aren’t padding around all barefoot, spreading their Hobbity verrucae all over the BS Fortress.
That’s all folks, catch you later :-)
