The times they are a changing...

WD 152; painted by Massimo Colombari

They don´t come like that anymore. While the technical brilliance that can be seen on CMON is staggering, to me it mostly blends into one dark and gritty mass where individual styles are hard to identfy. Sadly I couldn´t find anything else from Massimo Colombari (same as with Fraser Gray) :(

Unique style indeed! Some of the conversions are over the top IMO...but thats half the fun I guess. I adore his paint job on the Marauder champion though...and it is one of the reasons I bought that pack of figures when they appeared at the local game shop back in the day.

The blue details on the nose and ears on the pink horror conversion always reminded me of those sweets you get in Licquorice Allsorts.

Remember thinking these were very odd at the time but liked them a lot!

Steve, who is a true veteran painter and sculptor from the 80's, is still doing stuff around the scene these days. His style is very personal and nostalgic. I really like the way he stands out from todays "CMON-mass"...
