Hi,

Being a lurker for many years I would finally like to share some of my WQ related stuff with you. Pics are also available on my blog, although it's mostly in polish.

Starting today with the Wizard, which I tried to paint as per image on the player's card.

Bravo!

Your Wizard is done very nicely, Maniex. I like it a lot. And i'm very glad you decided to stop lurking and start posting :D

Excellent work... I love the extreme contrast on the cloak - it works really well

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Next one will be the Dwarf, my favourite player character. I especially love his great axe with two dices, and funny rule involving the beard ;-)

Great looking Dwarf Maniex.
Can't wait to see some more.

Great work thus far!

Are you planning to do any of the Monsters to go alongside the Warriors? :)

Mr Feral, actually I've just finished painting Vampire Lord from the Roleplay Book pic couple a days ago. Let me introduce you to Istvan Nicolai:

I've also painted more modern Vampire miniature to populate my dungeons:

Your Vampire Lord looks really fine with the grey hair and the addition of white to the figure. I may borrow your colour scheme!

Latest addition to my Warriors collection, conversion of a Pit Fighter:

Every time I try to post something in this thread it has to go through a moderation which takes at least 12 hours. Any ideas when it stops? Do I have to exceed a specific post count or smthn?

Another conversion - this time a Witch Hunter!

I'm loving all the WHQ logs on the go. It's good to see so many people getting back into it. I like the paint jobs on these minis, especially the Vampires, can't wait to see more! :)

Yes, that is correct. It won't be long now.

Nice witch hunter!
It's great to see so many people starting up projects for warhammer quest. Brings a tear to my crusty old eye.

Another warrior - Barbarian.

Now look what I've done to a minotaur from the original Warhammer Quest box. Fortunately I have more of them :-)

Always nice to see the Barbarian painted up. Nice dark scheme too, makes him look very gritty and down to earth.

Hey Maniex, been keeping an eye on your thread, you do some great photos and nice clean paint jobs, I'm liking your heroes. The Pit Fighter is a good simple conversion I hadn't thought of, can't think why. Been looking for something to represent a pit fighter, and if I can't find a female mini suitable, I will be copying you...

Had to post just to say that Minotaur is a really cool idea, could be a fantastic chaos ogre model. Keep up the good work.

Just finished painting new Krell. Will be used as wight lord.

Ooooh Krell, I like the red in particular.

It seems like a blast to paint! :)

There are some classy paintjobs there mate! I love the minotaur conversion :D . The lichemaster is also brilliant! I had to comment so I get notified of any updates.

Loving the eyes on the lichemaster!

The Minotaur/Ettin/Troll conversion is brilliant. It doesn't look much like the original base model and there aren't any obvious visible 'joins'. Maybe you have a talent for it.

I like your pit fighter too - he looks gritty and 'real'. Heinrich Kemmler looks genuinely scary :eek:

Thanks for all comments. I am happy to hear that you like my minis.

Now it's time for Felix Jaeger - in this case as an Imperial Noble. I've been hunting for the original miniature for some time. Still with no luck. I think the old Felix can do the job (actually you can see him in a diorama on the WQ original box).

Felix! Yes.. love this model. Lucky man for having one :)

I particularly like the runes on the sword. What greens are you using there?

Maniex
09-02-2012, 08:37
Shas'El Tael: As far as I remember it's scaly green -> goblin green -> scorpion green. Nothing unusual :-)

Let me introduce you to another warrior, the trollslayer:

Shas'El Tael
09-02-2012, 09:58
Hah! Was just prepping that model today. He's a bit big, but very Warhammer Quest original heroes scale. Love the pantaloons :)


goblin green
And.. that would be the secret. The nice flat tone of that Goblin green adds, is what seemed curious about the runes. Haven't used that colour in years. I even remember doing base edges in that... wow. :D

Cheers for the info,
Tael.

Maniex
10-02-2012, 08:33
Shas'El Tael: yup, there were times when all 'eavy metal minis had goblin green bases. Man, how awful was that :-)? (but also very oldschool!)

My latest conversion of another witch hunter. In fact it's a witch huntress. You could ask me why do I need more than one witch hunter warrior. I just love the whole theme of burning witches and stuff, so why not have a whole party of witch hunters. Therefore I'm in the middle of painting another two :-)

Oooooh, nice. I've always quite liked that 2nd inquisitor model, but my other half really doesn't for some reason, and as she's the one who wants to play witchhunter, it's her choice in the end. Where is the top guy from? He likes a bit like Snape from Harry Potter, but gone a bit BDSM. Very cool find.

Maniex
06-03-2012, 21:50
The top guy is Draegyn, The Black Bastard from the Iron Kingdoms line of miniatures from Privateer Press.

Here comes another witch hunter :-)

Love the wizard character in particular. It has been a long time since painting miniatures and I am afraid that my 43 year old eyes may not be waht they used to be when it comes to close up work. Cheers!

Witch Hunter looks like Draegyn dressed up for business :D

Purplebeard

Those Witch Hunters look the business, especially the converted 40K guys.
