Once again it’s #wipwednesday so here’s another model from my workbench, the characterful Darkoath Chieftain.
A lone figure stares out into an ocean so dark that it merges with the night sky – an inky, inexorable void. Somewhere in that vastness lurk his Deepkin masters and soon enough they will call upon him once more to do their bidding.
Those that walk the Path to Glory seek immortal power from their mercurial master. Yet the will of Tzeentch is capricious and his Path is strewn with The Lost and The Damned.
Greetings Arcanites! As it’s #WorkInProgressWednesday on the webz I thought I’d share some of the current miniatures on my work bench.
Clunking out of the abyss lumbers an automaton of the Cog Empire.
Well this is exciting! Here at Technasma we’re amongst the first people in the world to own this miniature. I was lucky enough to be sent a 3D printed prototype of this World of Rivals: Masters of the Deep miniature by entering a competition via their Instagram.
As a rapid prototype, it’s a little rough around the edges, but undeniably an awesome mini. This week I’ll be breaking out the file and putty to get this guy ready for painting. The models themselves are quite large (see shot below for reference with a £1 coin) and present an interesting challenge to paint.
The Masters of the Deep miniatures have a cartoon style to them with lots of smooth curves and flat surfaces. Some of the characters have a chibi-vibe with big heads and exaggerated proportions. Coolest of all is the game’s nautical Steampunk art direction!
Keep posted to see how I paint up this mini. I’m currently deliberating whether to go for full brass with steampunk metallics, Non-Metallic Metal or try a more cell-shades look like the Necrons we’ve done…
You can see more about World of Rivals via their Instagram and be sure to check out their relaunched Kickstarter that goes live tomorrow!
