Great job on Teclis, and a great find in that bag of Big Hats.

Okay, I'm resisting the Big Hats for a little while at least (although I might* have ordered some 3D printed Bull Centaurs from Etsy...). Work continues to finish all the half-painted stuff on my desk first.

(* I totally did.)

Here's a monster! None other than the fearsome DEATH CHICKEN!  lol





I'd been looking for a good dungeon-sized Cockatrice for a while. I considered the ye olde Marauder mini, but it really was small and chicken-like. Otherworld minis made one, that's very nice and old-skool, but still a bit small considering its impressive statline in the game. Then GW made a super-cool new model a few years ago, and went completely the other way, making it way too big for the purposes of Warhammer Quest (equal in size to a big griffon or small dragon).

Anyhow, I remembered that the Massive Darkness boardgame had a "cockatrix" in the stretch goals box. Now, I really didn't get on with that game, and sold pretty much everything from the Kickstarter, but this model remained, and I think it's the perfect balance between size and ferociousness for Warhammer Quest. It was a bit tricky to clean up and paint, being CMON boardgame plastic, but I'm happy enough with how it turned out. Once it got mounted on a Fenris Games base to match the rest of the collection, it instantly began to look more the part.

Now, onwards to the painting pile!

Agreed, lovely work on that, and I wouldn't even want to meet one in a brightly lit alley  lol

That's great. I have the same model, but you went bolder with the colour scheme and it is all the better for it (and your painting is better than mine!). Excellent work.

I have that chicken as well! Mine was sourced either on Ebay or here in the bazaar. I had no immediate use for it, but I remember really liking the design and picking it up. I occasionally encounter it when exploring the Lead Mountain, but so far it has eluded the brush... ::)

You did a great paintjob on yours though; nice and garish, just as I imagine such a monstrosity to look :)
Miniatures you say? Well I too, like to live dangerously...

Thanks all for your kind comments about the Death Chicken. I'm sure she'll have a long and glorious career of petrifying adventurers.

Speaking of adventurers, the latest half-done model to finally get finished is my Kislevite Shaman. Actually an old metal Amber Wizard, stripped and repainted.



Next up on the bench is a female dwarf, some more Chaos Champions, then I really should get the rest of the Ghouls done. But the Chaos Dwarfs are calling to me  lol

I agree that shaman is fantastic. All of it is.

Still on my mission of "finishing off things that have been in progress for months and months...  lol

Another of my female versions of the core box heroes. This time a classic Dwarf Queen Helga miniature to use as the Dwarf Warrior.



Came out a little bit dark for me. Mind you, some of that is because her eyebrows are so massive they've completely shaded out her eyes under the camera lighting!

Just got a couple of Chaos Champions to finish off, then I'm going to start something new, which will probably take me an age. I've got Chaos Dwarfs at the ready, the last of the metal Ghouls, and yet another bloody elf!  ;D

Thanks! I honestly love painting gemstones - they're my favourite part of these classic models.

I've noticed in recent years that there's been a change in the accepted method of how the top painters do gems (the big Youtubers, especially). But I still follow the tried and tested, 1990s Mike McVey method, with a bit of gloss varnish at the end, and I doubt I'll ever change.

Another Chaos champion done (cor, a flurry of activity on the painting table just lately!)

I wasn't quite sure which Chaos God this guy worshipped at first - he seems to come from the age of "Chaos in all its forms" miniatures. Despite his sylph-like figure, I settled on Khorne, due to the bones and massive sword.

I really like this old mini, despite it being another of the "Why are all the edges rounded?" brigade.
