Speed painting: Cthulhu markers

Cthulhu markers from the Call of Cthulhu LCG by FFG (plastic, by ???).

Played some games with my son. It was a shame those were not painted yet. They are now.

Speed painting: 3 hours (1 hour priming, 1 hour inking, 1 hour painting details)

More Cthulhu minis next...

Duel: Skaven versus Kharadron Overlord

GW's limited 2011 Games Day Skaven mini (metal, by Jes Goodwin?) + Brokk Grungsonn (plastic, by Martin Footit and Oliver Norman).

This is something I wanted to do a long time ago.

The skaven and the flame were done in 2012 and presented at Games Day Germany 2012. The flame thrower was the penis of the mechanical steed of an Empire's engineer. Not very politically correct. No surprise it got me disqualified for the Golden Demon competition.

The mechanical steed of the engineer can be seen there (without its flame-throwing penis):

Since then, I have been waiting for something flying which could also throw flames. I was expecting a dragon, but Brokk came out first.

Finally, I think these two go rather well together.






The infamous mechanical steed (the only picture I've got left of this earlier version)


Brokk Grungsson Lord-Magnate of Barak-Nar

GW's Brokk Grungsson Lord-Magnate of Barak-Nar (plastic, by Oliver Norman and Martin Footitt)

Excellent mini to paint but Brokk is not that easy to assemble (about 50 pieces!). There are so many details that I had to overlook some. Otherwise it would have taken ages to complete. I would never have expected Games Workshop to go steampunk, but they did.

The base is from Scibor Monstrous. I mixed two different bases actually.

You can notice that the cannon is not put straight over Brokk's head. In fact, it has been modified to fit a duel piece I am about to post next (may be tomorrow...).

Undead Soul-Powered Vehicles

GW's Corpse Cart (converted), Coven Throne and Neferata, Mortarch of Blood (all plastic, by Martin Footit and co)

Old minis, new bases.

Mortarchs

GW's Mortarchs (Neferata, Mannfred, Arkhan)

I had already done Arkhan a while back. Since I have changed his base (rectangular to oval), I've decided to do the other two mortarchs as well. The three riders, the creature's heads and its collar are all easily interchangeable with magnets.

The tombstones are from Green Stuff World.

Big Mamma Gruntaz

Forgeworld's Troll Hag (resin, by Trish Carden)

This one was heavily converted: the left arm is supposed to have a staff, it was turned in a different position.The right hand is sculpted in greenstuff. The legs were changed so that the hag could stand in an upright position (she was originally leaning on her staff. The hair and ears were placed further down so that the helmet could fit and be removed easily. The two goblins were added afterwards.
The helmet was done with a ping-pong ball and a part from a Funko Pop NFL toy.
I have even invented new Blood Bowl rules for this star player. Big fun on the pitch!

Teaser for Blood Bowl

Helmet for a big star player. Can you guess who it's going to be?
The white part is a pig-pong ball.
