Funny how inspiration works sometimes 🙂 Especially as it’s too cold to basecoat!
I originally thought of making a cultist champion for the “Ready your Retinue 2016” in the INQ28 forum over on Ammobunker. The theme for January was “First among equals”. As I wanted to make something chaos and tzeentch being my favorite deity in the pantheon albeit one I’ve never mastered in miniature form I cracked up my trusty Liber Chaotica: Tzeentch book and landed on this picture as a reference.
It just looked like a martial champion of tzeentch in my opinion. As the sketch is just a reference I took some liberties in some details.
So about why it’s funny where inspiration takes you. I started out making something for INQ but ended up with something for my Realm of Chaos/Age of Sigmar goal. A warband much like this one.
My warband won’t be so retro in palette nor builds but there’s some great references here that I will use 🙂 Basically I will make a:
– 5-10 warriors
– 2+ monsters/ big guys
My champion will lead the warriors. Is the plan. Per now 😉
Btw, would someone care to make a guess at where the parts are from?
