Did I force the title a little too much? :P
This is a very short & simple post, just the 'Death Tracker' Paladin by Westfalia Miniatures. I recently got it thanks to a friend and couldn't resist to paint it. There are a couple of heads and arms options in the sprue, but I simply chose what looked more obvious ;)
I don't think any WIP pics were necessary, as the paintjob is quite straightforward. Here it is:
|Any resemblance to...? Naaah, I don't think so|
The only variaion from the original is that I cut away the horns and tail from the creature baby, so everything is even more obvious.
I had an issue regarding the crossbow; the resin of one of the limbs was broken. Besides, it was deformed, so I had to reshape it with hot water and then glue it. If you look closely you will see the crossbow is far from symmetrical, but at least it works.
|If the pic is blurry enough, you won't see any defects|
Very few know his name. His real name. He is just an adventurer from Ahn Dalor, a lost region deep in the realm, now condemned to oblivion. He belongs to an old tradition of warmongers, strictly adhering to their warrior creed. Never tamed, never subdued; no lord, no king, no emperor has ever overmastered them. But they have paid the price. Their home burnt, now they all wander but scattered through the realm, making their way as they walk. Bounty hunters, mercenaries, whatever allows them to survive, while they dream with the day they will be reunited.
For now... this is the path.
|I really do need a backdrop for this kind of pics!|
The thing is that I'm afraid I've opened a can of worms. Have you seen the other awesome, magnificent works by Boris Woloszyn?
I need them all!
Oh, great, so I also think I will have to get into Rangers of Shadow Deep or something...
