Deacon, Champion of the Order of Anubis.

I am sorry I have not posted anything for a little while. There are a combination of reasons why not, but mostly it is because I bought COD:MW3. I am sure I am not the only one who has found that there are very short of time over the last couple of weeks.

Anyhow, now that I have clocked the games campaign mode I find myself free to post on the blog once more.

Deacon is a champion of the Order of Anubis, the secret sept of vampire knights dedicated to the protection of vampire kind form the multitude of threats that they must face. His own origins are lost in time, but he claims to have been a Nubian slave who, in life, served the Ancient One known only as 'The Egyptian'. Although powerful and very old himself, Deacon has always shunned the Machiavellian world of vampire politics, and instead has traveled the world, studying the ways of war. Unlike many elders, he has always embraced new technology and tactics, so long as it enhances his abilities as a warrior.

I am not sure who made this figure: I think it was West Wind. Obviously it was based on Blade, and so I painted it accordingly (although I gave it a bleached blond 'fro, inspired by Wesley Snipes in Demolition Man as I thought it would stand out better in 28mm). It's not the greatest ever sculpt, but I could hardly do a cabal of modern vampire knights without at least paying tribute to the films that inspired them.

Nice paint job. can agree about the sculpt though.

Musketeer miniatures do a great 'not' Blade and Whistler
