Sword and Sorcery pt.II

The Tzeentch champion is coming along rather nicely, although I'm not sure if it looks quite as old school as I originally intended. I'm just making it up as I go along - guided by the Changer of the Ways no doubt...

No matter - it's a lot of fun and a pretty different palette to that of my usual output. Here's a WIP shot of him at the moment.

  1. Looks pretty old school to me man. Maybe more modern parts and paints, but it looks the part really nicely. Oldschool style with newschool techniques? Keep up the awesome job!

    1. Thanks! It turned out a little cartoony but I guess that sort of fits Tzeentch...

  2. Nice choice of colour for the skin, I like the blend a lot. I've always liked tzeentch, it has a certain charm.

    1. Tzeentch really does have an odd charm. I loved him in the old days but he´s one of the gods that GW doesn´t quite seem to know what to do with nowadays. So, instead they just cover the miniatures in lots of flames.

      Not the way to go in my humble opinion...

  3. Ooh very nice! The blend is something I'll have to try myself. Is it mainly washes you're using for this paint job?

    1. The armour is only washes over the bone basecoat so far. The rest is thin layers of paint combined with washes.

  4. You should become lead designer at GW, your style is way more cool then the prevalent Skulls Syndrome & humongous Hammer Slammers ;)

    1. Cheers mate!

      I just wish I was a better sculptor - the feathers under his chin look horrendous up close - which is why they´re painted dark! ;-)

    1. Thanks mate! It´s a bit more saturated and cartoony than the standard Blanchitsu style methinks but that´s Tzeentch for ya!

    1. We´ll see... I´ll probably change it to a round one in the end.

    1. The pivotal word being "change" of course...

  11. Working well so far. Maybe some pinks and purples to "old school" it further?

    1. Cheers. There'll be some pinks and purples in there - don't you worry.

  12. I like the flowibg colour of the armour, and the eyes looks like a really mean chicken.
