Gorgon S Head Essay Checker

The Gorgon, 1964 ~ Hammer Horror ~ This the 1st Hammer film I ever saw!

The Gorgon Medusa, Athenian red figure amphora, 5th century BC | Antikensammlungen, Munich

artofcarmen: A while ago I heard a version of this story where Athena has pity on Medusa and turns her into the gorgon to protect her from all men. A gift instead of a punishment for uncle’s crimes. It always stuck with me, so here’s a doodle.

The Gorgons by Arbetta.deviantart.com on @deviantART "left to right: Stheno (the oldest sister. Less nice than Euryale), Medusa (the youngest and prettiest sister. Captured the attention of Poseidon and turned by Athena for disgracing her temple with such activities), Euryale (arguably the kindest one. She had some affairs from time to time)

Drumroll please... finally finished off all the Gorgon components. Some are just dry-fitted as I’ll be doing a sub assembly for painting but it’s great to see it all finally together. #gorgon #forgeworld #warhammer40k #warhammer40000 #astramilitarum #krieg #horusheresy #tanks #citadel #wip

The Gorgon Medusa is perhaps the best example of the merger between goddess and snake. The Gorgons were the daughters of the sea god Phorcys and Ceto, whose gaze could turn men to stone. While her sisters Stheno (forceful) and Euryale (far roaming) were both immortal, Medusa was subjected to mortality.

With just a week to go before No Retreat 6 I’ve finished adding in all the detail colour on the Gorgon. Next step is oil washes. #warhammer #warhammer40k #astramilitarum #krieg #gorgon #tanks #paintingforgeworld #warhammer40000 #citadelpaints #wip #modelling #hobby #paintingforgeworld #citadelpaints #coolminiornot #noretreatgibraltar

Added a half track guard and kit bashed the hull mounted melta cannon for my Hellhound. Now I just need to paint it up alongside the Gorgon. #wip #forgeworld #warhammer #warhammer40k #astramilitarum #krieg #kitbash #convert #modelmaking #tanks

I’ve been inhaling oil fumes all day but the Gorgon is starting to come together. Really love this effect so much and I think I’ve improved on previous attempts by using a larger square edged brush as it produces better streaks. #warhammer #warhammer40k #astramilitarum #krieg #gorgon #tanks #paintingforgeworld #warhammer40000 #citadelpaints #wip #modelling #hobby #paintingforgeworld #citadelpaints #coolminiornot #oilwash
