I might eventually even paint up an old RoC champion like JRN have been doing to great sucess lately: http://miniatextures.blogspot.se/2015/07/chaos-champion-of-tzeentch-wip-3.html?m=1
But in the meantime here's a mini that sort of celebrates the Old World without actually being an Old World mini. He's supposed to be a humble Night Watchman from a backwards feudal world, keeping the townpeople safe from the brigands and vile beastmen lurking in the dark forests just outside the city gates.
Here's the final version after some adjustments.
A simple but yet an brilliant homage.ReplyDelete
Thats ace Jeff, really characterful piece. The little shield/badge of office on the servo arm is a nice touch.ReplyDelete
I've had a thought on the polearm - how about adding a spike to the top and back of the head, that way it'll lean more towards powerd halberd that the current axe on a long handle? Thats the only thing that bothers me about it.
I've actually replaced the shield with a lantern - felt like it worked even better with the night watchman motif.Delete
The addition of spikes to the axe is a brilliant idea! Thanks!
Plenty of room in rage of sigmar for such characters - However mordheim was in the old world past and so can this be .......ReplyDelete
I think the bionics place him firmly in the 41st millenium....Delete
Those are small changes but make the finished result so much better. Love this guy!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I think he worked out pretty well!Delete
The guard looks great, I love the lamp on the servo arm, lots of character in this one; can't wait to see him painted. Do you use Dark Eldar bits for the servo arms?ReplyDelete
No - they're small servo arms from the Kataphrons.
Great stuff. Although I really liked the shield the addition of the lantern really enforces the night watchman vibe.ReplyDelete
How about an accompanying servo thingy brandishing his seal of office?
That or a dog.Delete
A cyber-hound would be the perfect companion for this guy. Great work man, you always come up with stuff that I have to fight not to copy in my own work.ReplyDelete
I actually think I've got a FW cybermastiff somewhere...Delete
Imitation is the highest form of flattery, so speaking for me you right ahead and copy all you want!
This is great stuff, from one Jeff to another. I get a nice old-school vibe from this, despite most of the bits being quite new. Is that the old 2nd Edition marine axe or the newer one?ReplyDelete
The power axe is definitely old-school. Well spotted!
Definitely prefer the lantern to the shield. Ace job capturing the Gothic/Medieval feel I love about a lot of Blanches work. The thin line melding together between fantasy and sci-fiReplyDelete
Thanks! It's exactly that line I was aiming for!Delete
Brilliant once again. The shield looked great, the lantern does too. Excellent work!ReplyDelete
Cheers Dave! The lantern fits the theme better, though I really liked the shield as well. But it's still there, just it's on his back - so win-win I guess!Delete
I think this model is my new favourite of yours.. not sure if you remember / or gave seen the feudal world picture for the 3rd edition rulebook but that image is one i wanted to capture for a while - bot only did you beat me to it you made the exemplary version.. - a feudal knight retinue would suit him - I am thinking of doing one at some point - but for now i will just admire your work .. ;-)ReplyDelete
I think i know what picture you´re thinking of and it was really that sort of image I tried to conjure up. Thinking of making the ironstrider into his lord - a true knight with shield, lance and the whole works, mounted on a strange mechanical steed.
Interesting contrast between the bulky halberd and the more finesse feel to the rapier-like sword scabbarded to his rear.ReplyDelete

I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of theReplyDelete
liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
