I think you all remember my vertically challenged Van Helsing.
Well, I've started working on his companions!

Wilhelm Gläubig, Warrior Priest (WIP)





His 'warhound', Manfred


And Wilhlem (after a new coat of paint)





And there's something big on my paint desk, but you'll have to wait for him...

Thanks, guys! Yeah...that hammer is just so over the top that I couldn't but love it  What a Face
And I don't even know where it comes from Suspect it must be some friend's give away.

Here there is some more WIP on the Flagellants. They're just out of the box, but that kit is so good that it allowed me to replicates three characters from the infamous Ulli & Marquand strips.

The Penitent Brotherhood


Brother Don't-see-sin


Brother Don't-hear-sin (on this one I had to clip the hears and drill small holes)


Brother Don't-tell-sin


Not sure about the names, as I'm translating them back from Italian scratch can anyone help?

Were you going for See No Evil, Hear No Evil, & Speak No Evil? Be that as it may, The Devote Loonies look to be potential UBERCOOL. Keep up the GOOD WORK!   thumbsup

Now that the Golden Tom is over, I can show you the 'something big' that was on my desk.

WIP Barag & Johan (Ogre Bodyguard)





And painted (proud of them, but having seen the level at the GT they didn't stand a chance)





Clos-ups




And fluff
Barag Sineater & Johan the Preacher
Although a weak voiced midget, Johan Zwerg is one of the most successful, self-appointed prophets of Sigmar of his time. People gather in their hundreds to try and catch a few words of his fiery sermons. Many suggests this is because Johan's lectern rests on the gut plate of the notorious Ogre bodyguard Barag Sineater. Since working for Johan, Barag has enthusiastically embraced the Sigmarite cult, particularly the Flagellants' belief that sin can be eradicated by vigorous flogging. The Ogre surely agrees that sinners taste better after being tenderized with a couple of flails.

The Flagellants look suitably scary/nuts...like they were kicked out of Hell's Angels for their antisocial attitudes. AND the Burner Boys look the part. GREAT WORK!   thumbsup

I like that you put a lot of thought into how you put your minis together. I for example only glued my five Flagellants together and was done. Also the Fanatics. Eyeryone has a torch and the Flafellant's arms really go well with the Adventurer's torsi, who would have guessed. The Ogre is really cool too, though you did miss some mould lines on the arms before painting him.

Thanks!
Yes, when I assemble my minis I keep in mind one of the classical Greek sculpting rules: always try to contrast a resting leg with a straining arm and vice-versa and, if the model allows, tilt the torso and head accordingly. This gives the individual model a sense of motion.
Then, as I always use my models in regiments for Fantasy games, I make sure that they line-up well and that the individual motion of each model flows into the motion of the next.

As for the kit-bashing, all human models from GW (well except characters) are entirely compatible with each other and most of them have been at least partially designed by the Perry brothers. This means there's hardly a combination of kits that doesn't work.

Mould lines...they are my pain. I guess I miss some because of a poor light arrangement on my work station. I really don't see them on the flat grey, unpainted model...

Thanks for that ancient Greek wisdom, it was news to me!

Yeah...the marauders...still, they work well with the Catachans Infantry Squad, as just like the marauders they're over-sized.
These are the only two kits that are problematic, being some of the earliest multi-part plastic kits they're out of proportion.
Did anyone say Clanrats or Night Goblins lol!

The Witchburners



And now, let's start working on the proper Witch Hunters Smile
Some sculpting to be done for them, mostly hats, gloves and extra details to the coats, but the base will again be Empire Free Company. Stay tuned!

VERY NICELY DONE! Somehow Witch Hunters & torches are natural go-togethers. AND the Lads look suitably deranged.   thumbsup
