Axiom's Miscellaneous Fantasy Selection (p3 Sword Master)
« on: July 10, 2020, 10:12:00 AM »
I've got a long-term thread over in the Future Wars section, but have never really delved long and deep enough into fantasy figures to warrant the same approach here. But I've got a couple of fantasy projects on the go and thought it might be a good opportunity to collect everything in one thread!

To kick things off, here is the small selection of the few fantasy figures I've painted over the last couple of years.

A small winged cat painted in 2014


My Pan Tangian Warband painted for Frostgrave in 2016






Heroquest elf & chaos thug from 2016




Hawkmoon and Oladahn painted in 2017


Norse Dwarf also from 2017


Circus of Corruption grotesque from 2018


Marauder Citizens vignette from 2019




As and when I paint up some new fantasy figures, I'll keep this post updated. Hope you like them :)

That warband is ace!

I really like the conversion of Ghan-buri-Ghan as well, very clever.

Thanks all! It was a fun warband to put together. They're all old Citadel figures, but collected from numerous ranges (pre-slotta fantasy, Warhammer, Eternal Champion and AD&D).

@Rick W - glad you like Ghan-buri-Ghan reinterpreted! Sourcing a companion for Hawkmoon that matched Moorcock's description proved impossible, so I had to make my own :)

Your choice of SPLENDIDLY imaginative miniatures is almost as WONDERFUL as your brushwork & basing. VERY WELL DONE!

He's a conversion from a Citadel AD&D hobgoblin! I sculpted the beard and hat

I've made the start on a new fantasy skirmish warband, primarily for Mordheim, but with a view to Frostgrave as well.

The warband is designed around Citadel's 1984 pre-slotta Lone Wolf Citadel Guard, with some added conversions and figures to fit the aesthetic.



The first 5 models:





The captain was converted from a Citadel Felix Jaeger figure:



Loads more details and pics over at my blog.

Great concept an execution, especially the conversion work on the Captain. Brilliant distressing on the cloaks.

Thanks all! The cloaks are my favourite element of the group I think :)
