We’ve seen the glorious young knight now it’s the turn of his old, somewhat world-weary, comrade.
To call this model a conversion may be something of a stretch, he’s based almost entirely on this barbarian from momminiaturas, with the chaos symbols carefully scraped off his shield, and his club switched out for a sword. It’s not a huge change but I think it does a rather nice job of transforming him into an old knight, no longer as glory hungry as he once was but still ready to take up his sword in defence of his lands.
Ok, I admit that I said a few weeks ago that I wouldn’t let anything distract me from Khorne until all the Berserkers were done, but I slipped. After painting Kharn I found myself overexcited about the idea of painting things red (the inner Ork rising to the surface perhaps) and flailed around eagerly until my hand fell on this chap.
The priest, although sharing a distinct similarity to Games Workshop’s Empire warrior priests, comes from MOMminiaturas, a Spanish miniatures company who combine low-low prices with excellent quality models and are well worth checking out. One minor issue is that the website is almost entirely in Spanish, which makes the ordering process a little difficult for those of us who don’t speak the language. Then again most people in the world have the same issue with websites in English and they make do without too much complaint so I’d recommend manning up and applying a combination of common sense and the (debateable) charms of google-translate to get you where you need to be. Or better yet, make friends with an actual Spanish person – making repeat orders considerably easier and providing you with a boon companion and all the joy that results from having another human being to share life’s journey with.
