...And now for something completely different...

Yesterday Inso went into the big city to spend his vouchers. After buying the most evil of cardigans, he popped into Truro Games Workshop and bought a Tyranid Battle Force (£50-00 worth of plastic aliens). While he was there he met Steve Buddle, the owner/sculptor of Spyglass miniatures, had a bit of a natter and was shown Steve's latest green, an awesome chaos daemonette. As a result of the visit to GW, Inso has been rather distracted and instead of painting zombies, he has been jabbering on about how cool the chaos daemonette was and assembling Tyranids instead.

What does this mean? No photos. In Inso's own words 'there's no point taking pix of assembled plastic Tyranids, is there?'.

I suppose he's in true 'stiff upper lip' fashion, I have rooted through his on-line album and come up with a rather special picture. This may not look like much but it is one of only two such miniatures in existance. It is a pre-production, master resin casting of a Grymn with flamer called Stefan. It was a gift from Kev and Sally White at Hasslefree Miniatures and was named after Inso (who's first name is Steve). How cool is that?! Anyway, here's the pic and I hope you like it:

As usual, if you click the pic, you get a larger view.

As time goes by, you will learn more of Inso's unhealthy obsession with regards to Grymn miniatures, as I'm sure there will be many pix of them to appear on this blog in the future.
