One of the most important functions of any blog, is the promotion of other bloggers work who produce content similar to your own. Doubly so, if the blogger has a very similar sounding blog name to you own. Recently, I have been posting selected early 'Eavy Metal material from the mid '80s as well as a few adverts from the 'Golden Age'.
Thank you to everyone who shared an opinion on those.
I stumbled across Nico's blog a fair few months ago, and to be honest I don't check back often enough. I am glad I did today, for the well of quality painting and collecting that confronted me was outstanding. After spending a good thirty minutes or so soaking up the old school charm of his blog, I came to the conclusion that Nico has to be the greatest, if not the greatest, painter in the broader Oldhammer scene.
Don't believe me? Have a look at these...
|A full frontal view, with more details from the shields revealed.|
|Brilliant tone and execution on that wood, and the grain on those shields look hand painted. Sensational work!|
|The '80s old school influences don't end with Chaos Dwarfs of old. But orcs too. The execution of the blanche inspired shields is remarkable - don't you think?|
|Nico doesn't just focus on fantasy, here's an incredible Gargant. Very old school orky don't you feel?|
There's plenty more to see over on his blog. If you're not already a follower of Nico's work and you have even a tiny interest in Old School Warhammer or 40k, you would be a complete fool to miss out.
