Kommander Malinka Kurganova

The busy chaps at Raging Heroes have very skillfully identified my weak-spot and supplied models to match. Therefore, on a cold winters night I gave into temptation and dived head-long into the Kurganova limited edition box set, despite the fact that I have no possible army I could use them in! I was just far too tempted by the sight of such beautiful figures.
I assembled them over Christmas and have now finished painting the first of the three girls. Kommander Malinka is a fine young lady and was quite a pleasure to paint.

The details on the master are all there, but they are cast on in quite a low profile. It is very important to be very careful to apply only the thinnest of undercoats. I was not quite so careful, so struggled with some of the detailing. 

I opted to go with a dark purple coat because I thought this would accentuate the gold picture and writing. I couldn't resist giving her white PVC boots. The features on the model are very well crafted and I would strongly recommend the models. Please forgive the lighting, I managed to blow up my lamp before the photos were taken.

Chaos Tzeentch warshrine painted

Last Wednesday I posted up the start of the assembly of a flying Tzeentch war-shrine for my Troll army.

I have now completed the assembly and painted the beast. When I last left it, I had not worked out how to make it look like it was floating. The answer, as usual was to go do the simplest route. I cut a flying stand short and placed it onto that. Easy!

I have tried to maintain a consistent colour scheme across the model, so have painted the slaves that pull the shrine a pale blue colour.

When I first painted the shrine, it was just blue. However my usual advisers; the players at my local gaming club said it needed jazzing up a little. I therefore added a swirly pattern. Very easy in the end, and I think it looks OK.

As always, click on the pictures to make them larger..
