Ogroid Thaumaturge

When I assembled the Warhammer Quest Silver Tower miniatures, I figures this guy would be a trial to paint, and I was right. The details just don’t suit my painting level and so the end result is not so great.

There’s probably an easy way to get a decent result from the glyphs sunk into his skin, but it eluded me.

The rest of the model turned out fine, and I enjoyed painting the base.

There is not base big enough for this buy in the Shattered Dominion box, so I gave him a more traditional base treatment. To keep the arcane theme I painted the base similarly to the basing I gave the flamers of Tzeentch a while back. I used alien fire tufts from Gamers Grass to provide some contrast to the dark blue and purple base.

    Dave, you may not feel you have done the miniature justice, but it looks great. I’m impressed – detail stands out and looks good, even those glyphs!

    I agree with what others are saying, I like the completed miniature. The over saturation of details in GW miniatures is one of the several reasons I don’t do Warhammer anymore!

    I agree with others that he looks great and you’re being too hard on yourself. You might try taking pictures with a bit more light directed towards the mini as some details on the mini are pretty dark but all in all, I’d say this is a job well done 🙂
