Hobby Spotlight: Chris Lewis' Vect & Grey Knights

This week I'm excited to show off some truly exceptional models.  This month the man behind the conversions and paint is Chris Lewis, a local Kansas boy who is putting together some stunning minis.

We like to see great sculpts and conversions at the Monster Lab (after all the blog was founded out of the love of creating 40k and Fantasy monsters) and Chris' Asdrubael Vect is no exception.  His conversion used an assortment of Dark Eldar, High Elf Dragon Lord and mage bitz.  For the orb in Vect's hand, Chris used an air soft BB.

Blade vanes and haywire blasters were the foundation for Vect's power weapon.

Chris used a DE archon resin body and added on a Warrior bit along with some custom green stuff work to accent.

The finished model is excellent and does the fiction and codex entry justice.  Look forward to future posts for completed painted pics of Chris' Vect and other Dark Eldar!

Chris' armies are on either extreme of the paradigm, from the fragile but deadly Dark Eldar to his stalwart and pure Grey Knights.  

Chris' grey knights are epitomized by super sharp lines and clean designs.

The use of heavy black wash on silver gives Chris' models a great amount of depth and the illusion of battle wear and weathering.

Chris didn't miss a detail on his Storm Raven, taking the care to lavish detail on its pilot and gunner.

Chris and his gaming crew have branched out into a large number of game systems, even including Mordheim for Fantasy.

Here he is, practicing for his future career as a t-shirt model and salesperson for the official Monster Lab t-shirt at the latest 40k tournament hosted by The League and 31st Century Games & Hobbies.

Congrats Chris for being nominated as the Monster Lab's Mad Hobbist for the month of May!
