Stronghold Terrain: Neue Previews der Draugr
Elmar von Stronghold Terrain zeigt weitere Previews seiner Draugr-Modelle.
Der berittene “Draugr des Nordens” ist bemalt.
Auch bei HVM Workbench ist ein schickes Foto aufgetaucht:
Und dann gab es da auch noch die Skelette:
Yesterday I recieved a small package with the first casts (a few master casts in resin) of the already finished miniatures Stefan Niehues-Ellermann sculpted for me.
I had to paint them at once and decided to start with the skeleton-dollies. These dollies were originally only meant as starting points for sculpting undead miniatures with remnants of cloth, armour, weapons or even half rotten zombies. But I think these models may be very interesting for some of you for different purposes, especially for decorating your dungeons, battlefields or dioramas and so I decided to make them available soon.
The first 3 pictures show the painted sprues with the two different skeletons. The left skeleton is sculpted as a male and the left one as a femal. The poses are very straight and without any dynamic for better casting. But it is very easy to alter the pose in nearly every way you wish by bending or cutting and glueing at the different joints. The first 4 examples can be seen in the following pictures.
The pictures 4 – 6 show a little scene Stefan created and sent me. I painted them and put them on one of the first snowy bases I ever did. (Comment: The snow effect was a little test for the base of the next miniature standing on my workbench – the already primed “Liche on undead horse” I want to paint next.
The last 3 pictures show a pair of skeletons I bended into a lying and a sitting position – after I had already painted them. This was a test with the very first casts of the interim mould and the miniature had some failures. I couldn’t hope that the results would be as good as they were in the end.
I hope you like them as much as I do.
And finally I show you the two standing Draugar in comparison to miniatures of other companies.
From left to right:
* Shield Maiden from Stronghold-Terrain
* Draugr Lord
* Anglo Dane Warrior from Gripping Beast
* Mongol Warrior from Fireforge
This are some pictures of the Lord (or King) of the Draugar of the North. He carries a big and deadly icesword slung to his back and wears a leatherarmour. The miniatures is posed as if he is raising the fallen from the dead.
Take a closer look at the head and you can see a kind of crown of ice and the fine details of the folds in his head. The sculpter Stefan Niehues done a fantastic job on this miniature. It will be a real fun to paint this miniatures tomorrow.
I hope you like him too and please feel free to comment and share the pictures.
I took some pictures of the assembled and based Draugr. He is holding a big icesword and wears an leatherarmour.
