I know this guy gets a lot of hate, but I can't help but love him for it.
As with a lot of my other Retribution figures, I've had this Gorgon since the Angry Elves made their debut at Gen Con so long ago. I was in college at the time, and with a full time job, I had very little time for painting. I wanted to get models done in a very small amount of time, so that led me to purchase my first airbrush. It was plastic, bottom fed, and of pretty poor quality.
I painted the Gorgon for the first time in a friends workshop, since they had a compressor I could use. I applied the paint with the finesse of a freight train, and slapped on glow effects that didn't even come close to being the color I wanted. In an effort to make the model look better, I tried applying battle damage with a sponge. Of course, this did nothing to help the appearance of the model.
The Gorgon sat languishing in a case until a few weeks ago, when I pulled him out, intent on using him with a Scyir. I quickly determined he wouldn't fit with my present force, and quickly chucked him in the Simple Green. A quick application of paint with a little more finesse than the last time, and viola!
I was able to use him in a game recently, and he didn't quite perform as I wanted him to, but that's because he was the only thing on my flank that I could throw at a bunch of angry Doom Reavers. Next time, I hope to use him to lock down another 'jack.
Here's a little preview of next weeks post.
