And then, just before Salute, when she had planned to enter him into the painting competition, he went missing. I do not recall who had him last, but I am informed it was very definitely my fault, and I definitely had him last.
Anyhow, over the weekend, I was clearing out some old boxes of stuff, and in amongst some figures casually chucked into a box was a familiar chap. It took me staring at him for quite a while to be convinced it was him.
If anyone is wondering whether or not this means I will be running some Grey Knight allies in my Guard any time soon . . . well, probably not a while. I don't think I'm going to be allowed to take him out of Sim's sight for a long time yet. I am also informed he is "not finished".
I was only allowed to take a few celebratory pictures for the blog on the understanding that I made it very clear that this was just a work in progress, and there is still a lot of work to be done on him.
The last picture just didn't do justice to the stunning blending on the cloak, so here's a close up, taken somewhat awkwardly as I didn't have quite enough fingers - I was pressing the "take photo" button with the thumb of the hand holding the model...
While I didn't manage to get much practically done on a hobby front this weekend, finding Coteaz has made me disproportionately happy and content with the world.
