Spire Tyrants – Part 2 (Movember)

Time to add another model to my Spire Tyrants warband, this time in the form of a very angry, chaos worshipping dwarven gladiator.

This little dude glories in the title of “frenzied rager”. Note; that’s “Rager” not to be confused with “Roger”, the man who’s hosting a Mo’vember painting challenge at Rantings From Under The Wargames Table (and who may or may not be frenzied – you’d have to ask him yourself).

Movember is an annual event in which men grow (often terrible) moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues. I’ve never joined in until now because my beard is just excellent I’ll have you know and I’m not shaving it off just to grow it again. Plus people who knew me before I grew it might start to recognise me and that’ll never do. However, if I can show some support to my brothers the world over by painting some hairy miniatures then I certainly will and thanks to Roger coming up with a miniatures themed spin on the event now I can. I’ve got a few more dwarves I’d like to tackle before the month is out, so watch this face!


Spire Tyrants – Part 1

Despite how much I like the various chaos warbands made specifically for Warcry I seem to have ended up painting lots of warbands from other factions instead. I don’t see any reason to stop doing that of course but I do intend to tackle a few of what I still think of as the “core warbands” as well. I even got as far as assembling the gladiators of the Spire Tyrants but never got any further until I spotted this Headtaker the other day. He was the first model I worked on for the warband but for some reason progress stalled when he was within about half-an-hour of completion and for several months he just sat there until I picked him up again and finished him at last.

As previously mentioned I intend to use Orktober to encourage myself to paint a load of greenskins so the rest of the gladiators may end up waiting a little longer but I’ll aim to crack on with them soonish.
