Change Need We – Part 4

Just a quick update to the Tzeentchian cult as, with complex and arcane movements of my brushes, I summon a Flamer from the Realm of Chaos. This is a hell of a weird creature isn’t it, I must admit before I painted one myself I didn’t ‘get’ it at all. It grew on me whilst I was working on it though and it was certainly a fine chance to play around with bright colours and magical effects.

Next up, more misguided humans who have sold their souls to the Changer of Ways.

    Spectacular, love the vibrant colours and the transitions between them are excellent. Weird figure for sure but brilliant brush work all the same. 🙂

      Thank you! Aye, it’s a strange one but I think that actually pushed me to make sure the painting was as good as it could be, it could so easily have ended up as an indeterminate mass and I was really determined not to end up with that. I’ve got a bigger version I’m planning to include in the warband so I’ll have to pluck up my courage and tackle it now!

    It’s lovely mate – blending the blue & pink works so well, and the green is a wonderful touch. I reckon this is one of the best ‘one of them thingies’ that I have seen!

    • Wudugast

      Thanks mate, that’s real praise right there! B-) I’m really enjoying this project as a chance to break out the bright colours and mess around with them a bit. I’ve got one of the big Exalted Flamers on the backburner and I’m a bit less intimidated by it now I’ve finished this one without incident. 🙂

  • Carlo

    Love it! Good luck with the bigger creature 😉

  • Jenn

    Looks fabulous.
    Love the vibrancy of the green, really stands out.

    That’s a pretty cool monster. Not sure I’ve seen that one before. I like the multiple heads up top. Is it supposed to have a mouth on bottom too? It looks like there are more teeth and more flames coming out.

    Is this like the Tzeentch’s answer
    to a Chaos Spawn? I’m not sure how I would go about painting that. But that was my problem with the Chaos Spawn too, and after I finally started it, it just kind of came together.

    • Wudugast

      Thank you! It’s cool isn’t it, if a little bit weird (although weird is good in my book). It does have teeth at the bottom, it’s kind of like a flower of fire breathing mouths that acts as it’s foot (very Chaos eh!).

      It is spawnlike in its sheer chaoticness but it’s not really a spawn. Spawn are mortals who have been “blessed” by too many mutations from the gods until they turn into a writhing mass. Flamers are daemons, so whilst spawn become that way over the course of a misspent life flamers start out that way. Flamers are daemons of living magical fire, constantly shifting and flickering like flame (and burning whatever they touch of course!). Although all the gods create chaos spawn Tzeentch, being a god of change, is particularly prone to causing wild mutations. I would suggest that he has more spawn, and certainly more people who’ve willingly become spawn, amongst his followers than any other god.

        Ah, more Warhammer lessons, hehe! Didn’t realize that Spawns were just mortals with way too many mutations. I like them better as random monsters, like Cthulhu stuff.
        But the too many mutations makes sense, in the Warhammer world.

  • Kuribo

    I like the combination of dark and lighter colors on this beast. Tzeench minis can definitely be among the weirdest and most colorful so it is fun to see both of those traits in one model. You’re tearing through these minis and will have a nice little warband of them done soon 🙂

    • Wudugast

      Thank you! I remember seeing an interview with a GW designer who said Tzeentch is always the hardest of the gods to realise as models because how do you represent constant change with a miniature. I think they’ve done a fair job with these though.

      I’m having great fun with these, think I’ll slow down a bit over the next little while (because work and real life stuff) but they’re starting to look like a nice little group which always really encourages me to keep going with a project.

  • lordcommandereloth

    You are storming through these! The blend between colours is great, somehow you made its madness seem more realistic!

    • Wudugast

      Thank you! It’s all about riding the wave of creative enthusiasm for a project, I find it can be hard to force myself to paint something if I’m not feeling it but if I can get up a head of steam with a project then seeing it grow keeps me focussed. 🙂

  • Pete S/ SP

    Amazing- love the shading and the magical fire.

    Cheers,

    Pete.

  • imperialrebelork

    Haha he colours are so vibrant. I love it mate. A twisted creature for sure.

  • Azazel

    Yeah, I like what you’ve done here. The colours and transitions make me appreciate a model I don’t really like!

    • Wudugast

      Thank you! I wasn’t a big fan of these myself before I tried painting one but they’re more fun to work on than I expected. Going to try one of the big ‘exalted’ ones next. 

Speak, damn you!
