Warhammer Quest 1994 Wizard

25 years is long enough to count as a neglected model, right?

This wizard is neglected no more, as I have finally painted him up:

Warhammer Quest wizard: acquired 1994, painted 2019

I had a lot of fun with this figure, and there’s a fair amount of detail on it considering its vintage. It was also the first time I’ve painted a vial of liquid, which I think came out okay.

The yellow/green effect on the sword is meant to indicate that the wizard poured some of whatever is in that vial for a magical effect.

It wasn’t until I went to paint this model that I realised he has bare arms. I’ve used this model a number of times over the years, but obviously never looked that closely before.

This model represents my entry for Azazel’s October community painting challenge.

    Good work, though it is kind of scary to think that this chap was released 25 years ago.

    I always though that the arms were meant to be sleeved, which ended under his bangles for convenience of sculpting. He looks pretty buff for a wizard with a long grey beard!

    Damn I hate to think how old heroquest is then…
    Nice job. Still a classic mini.

      Cheers, yes I think the Heroquest figures would be 30 years or older now
