The Jewel in the Skull - Hawkmoon and Oladahn

Each participant will be bringing an incarnation of the Eternal Champion, accompanied by a suitable companion.

Asslessman has already painted Corum and Jhary-a-conel, and I suspect you'll see more Champions in the lead up to the event at the end of July.

I elected to paint up Hawkmoon, based on nothing more than the fact that I really like Jes Goodwin's 1985 Citadel sculpt. The delicate elf-like sculpt just hits all the right points.
