Hobby Update – Zurrock the Mighty

Some time last year I took advantage of one of Mierce miniatures clearance sales. I picked up a number of metal models, mainly standard bearers for various units. I don’t mind getting metal miniatures for these size creatures as I find the Mierce resin to be a bit too brittle and easy to break (though it works well on their larger monsters).

Having been using a pre_painted older Wargor with back banner as the bsb for a while, I thought I should pull my finger out and actually get this figure painted ready for my semi-final game!

I kept the colour scheme similar to the rest of the army but gave him a unique tabard colour. I did try and freehand something on the banner but screwed it up so royally that I ended up painting over it. This was even with me trying to copy a design I’d drawn onto paper! Instead (to make up for my abysmal lack of freehand skills) I gave him some warpaint.

  1. Very nice! I’m lame at freehand. Someone gave me the tip of writing the thing in pencil on the mini beforehand. Think that helped me a bit when I lettered a Star Player’s name on his base recently (though I wasn’t crazy about it, and just went and redid it about a week ago!).

  2. Nice work on Mr.Banner here and his warpaint. Have you considered using “Gundam Markers” so you can draw on designs to this style of banner? They’re essentially paint markers, so you could draw on your design with one of your thicker markers, and then outline it with a thinner black, etc.
