..of Matters Arcane and Magic 34

“Ascension alludes me..”

Hurvald Lord of Aeons sat astride the mighty void serpent Ophioneus..the path to glory still unclear to him..so many paths..so many possible endings..only one strand of fate the right one..

Hurvald is weakened..his frame only a husk..skin stretched over bones..though in the caverns of his eyes an unrelenting gaze penetrate..

..the Lord of Aeons can see the end of his path..one that finally will see him reach his true potential as a demi-god and warrior scholar of tzeentch..

..only to find that strand amongst the endless strands of fate..

I assume an explanation is needed 🙂

In PtG your ascension to daemonhood is the end goal and you achieve this by accumulating favour points until a set value. Reach it and you become a daemon prince, but – there’s always a but right 😉 You need to win a game as a daemon prince to comply the ascension.

So with that reasoning I decided to represent this in miniature form by having the first step represented by the Lord of Aeons on top of the void serpent as a count-as daemon prince and then a final variant when (or rather if) he reach it.

Fun stuff imo! Still have a way to go with these two versions of Hurvald but I’ll keep you posted if I can keep my steam up here. The air is leaving this balloon very fast now 🙂

    Great conversions! Both versions look brilliant. But I’m not sure about the head of the void-serpent. The face looks a bit off. Maybe it would look better with a beak?

    • Cheers 🙂 The void-serpent especially is still can early WiP so I still need to work a lot on it. My inspiration on these are taken from Asian mythology so I don’t think it’ll look halfbad when it’s painted 🙂

  3. Excellent!! Your level of productivity is phenomenal my friend.

    Fantastic stuff – I really love the DP. Keep that head of steam up dude… this is brilliant work!

    Wow! Both models are looking great (all your iterations of Hurvald have been fantastic). The void serpent Ophioneus sure a a creepy looking mount. I love the large tusks/fangs on the front of his face.

    The second version of the daemon prince looks monstrous! His hair is particularly neat and fitting for the model. Is that from one of the plastic dwarf characters? If so, great incorporation!

    Keep up the great work! It is always a pleasure to see and read about!

    • Thank you Adam! I actually have two more Hurvalds on the go but more on that later 😉
      The hair and face are the leftovers from that mustache free dwarf priest I made into Baudbar. It’s so intricate I felt it could work on its own I just prolonged the beak 🙂

    Very nice, your tzeentchian madness is truly an inspiration.

    A friend and I have been planning to do a Path to Glory campaign for a while, it just seems to have been put on a back burner.

  7. […] Does anyone remember the Sorcerer King Hurvald…? […]
