Exciting new addition to the lead mountain

So what do we have here?  A limited edition sculpt of Paul Bonner's Cyanolith?  For my very own?!

Merry Christmas to me!!




Here is the art on which the sculpture is based.  The art appeared on page 132 of the Cadwallon RPG rulebook, and I'm sure it's littered elsewhere throughout the Rackham catalog, probably in the Gallery section of an issue of Cry Havoc! magazine.  And, of course, there's a fine rendition of it in Paul Bonner's art book.





Paul Bonner is on the same level as Frank Frazetta, as one of my all-time favorite artists.

Limited edition of only 100 copies worldwide.  My copy is #31.  Sculpted by Italian maestro, Carmine Giugliano.  Signed by Paul Bonner.



This sculpt is a very good candidate for my next Crystal Brush project.

  2. Thanks, Sean! Are you going to make it there next year? I just reserved my hotel room, so I plan to be there, if all goes well.

    1. It is always on the radar...I will continue to paint like I will, even if it doesn't pan out. The same goes for NOVA :)

  3. Nice find!

    Should be a lot of fun (Labor of love type) getting this ready to go.

  4. Indeed, Bob. I'll most likely paint it to match the artwork. Very low pressure that way, and I can enjoy trying to get into Bonner's head, while I try to match his brush-strokes.

    One challenge will be figuring out how to transport it! With those lances sticking out, I may not have a container large enough to protect the figure, while being small enough to practically transport as baggage.
