And to continue this stroll down memory lane, please enjoy this chestnut from back when A Gentleman's Ones was less than one month old. Already, I was feeling nostalgic; this post was designed to be a retrospective of some of my very first conversions and the beginning of my love for all things Terminator (as well as an introduction to my first hapless venture into chapter creation -the Book Wardens).
All the more, this figure remains one of my favorites to this very day.
And so we conclude this not particularly nostalgic, but nevertheless entertaining, break from a barely established routine. Thank you for humoring me as I un-shelved these old Book Warden Terminators to end our Winter Term here at the University. As I often say about my undergraduate degree, “I didn’t learn too much, but had a real nice time.” I hope you did as well.
To conclude, I've saved the most worthy of the group. At the very least, he represents my most ambitious basing to date and, to me, he remains a solid reminder that I don't need to only think of the base as what happens under the model itself.
My desire to find some Post-Gothic cavernous archival setting continued, of course, and at every turn I tried as hard as I was able to evoke the neglected mustiness of any old library. My favorite example, by miles, is the Autocannon Terminator. I believe the doorframe comes from Hero Quest (?), or some similar game, and I'm still particularly fond of the way in which he appears to be ducking out from one passage into the next, his hand still supporting the gesture on the frame itself.
No book is safe. No stack too obscure. Dewy Decimal beware.
