    Harry's Quest

    For one reason and another, and in no small part due to some of the fantastic and inspirational project logs on this forum, I find myself increasingly drawn towards Warhammer Quest. Now whilst I am blown away by some of the wonderful 3D dungeons in other project logs I just don’t have the time to get into that sort of thing right now … but one day … you have my word on it. That will be the holy grail and the final stage of my quest.

    Right now I am at the very beginning of my quest.

    I have cracked open my copies of Warhammer Quest, Lair of the Orc, Lord and Catacombs of Terror, skim read the rules, soaked up the glorious contents of the boxes, formed a plan, and am ready to set out on my quest ….and so … to the miniatures.

    I am very fortunate to have a large selection of miniatures to go at so I will not be painting the plastic that came in the boxes but choosing some of my favourite miniatures from my collection to represent each of the required Heroes and Monsters. Given my collection this may well include a few older miniatures.

    Here is my plan:

    1) Paint something for all the Monster cards form the Warhammer Quest box set
    2) Paint something for all the Monster cards from Lair of the Orc lord.
    3) Paint something for all the Monster cards from Catacombs of terror.
    4) Paint everything extra I need to complete all the monsters on the Level 1 table.
    5) Design, make and paint my 3D Warhammer Quest dungeon.

    So this is what I have done and still need to do:

    Stage 1:
    (2D6) 12 Bats
    (2D6) 12 Rats
    (2D6) 12 Spiders

    6 Goblin Spearmen
    6 Goblin Archers(Done some ... got others to do).
    6 Orcs

    6 Orc Archers
    (2D6) 12 Snotlings
    (2D6) 12 Skaven

    (1D3) 3 Minotaurs

    Stage 2:
    Gorgut
    Snakebooze (Orc shaman)
    Gubbinz (Goblin jester)
    Growler (Squig hound)
    Skullbasher (Huge Orc)
    3 Big ‘Uns
    6 Black Orcs
    3 Fanatics
    4 netters
    4 clubbers
    2 Squig hunters
    6 Cave squigs
    4 Wolf riders
    Bog Off the snotling

    Stage 3:
    Wight King on throne
    Evil Necromancer
    Hunchback servant
    3 tomb Guards (with halberds)
    9 Skeletons with hand weap’
    6 Skeletons with spears
    9 skeletons with bows
    9 Zombies
    12 ghouls
    1 Carrion

    Stage 4:
    +6 Orcs
    +6 Orcs (Bows)
    6 Savage Orcs & Shaman
    +6 Goblins (Spears)
    +6 Goblins (Bows)
    Goblin Shaman
    +2 Goblin Netters
    +1 Herder
    9 StormVermin
    8 Beastmen
    3 Centaurs
    3 Ogres
    12 Skeletons (Spears)
    +3 Skeletons (Bows)

    9 Dark Elves (x-Bows)
    8 Black Guard
    9 Hobgoblins

    Here is what I have got so far … done accidentally as part of other ongoing projects.

    I did some of the Goblin spearmen:



    Some wolf riders:



    The Dread King:



    and some Tomb Guards:



    Some skeletons:



    and some with spears:



    Not much of a start.

    Re: Harry's Quest

    Let me be the first to congratulate you on getting a Quest log started. I am definitely going to check back on you to see how you progress. As for the dungeon itself, I am sure you will find plenty of inspiration here, and I am secretly working on something that might help you with inspiration as well, but that is another thing entirely. I need to get more done as well, but hey... time is always an issue.

    Anyhoo, I also sent you a PM if you still want the Elf. Let me know!

    Re: Harry's Quest

    Well, that is a very good start to the thread with some wonderfully painted miniatures. The great thing about WHQ (and other games) is that it really is a hobby where you have a choice of where you want to start and your skill is certainly with the brush.

    I have many miniatures as well and I think that my painting skill for miniatures is basic so I am a tad green with envy - in the nicest way possible.

    I look forward to seeing future additions to this thread/blog.

    Cheers!

    Lol, just seen you've got 9000 posts Harry. Don't really need me to tell you that doing a plog is good!

    Re: Harry's Quest

    Great stuff! Love the skeletons with the earth etc
    Good idea doing a plog, I've had loads of help/inspiration from people on here.

    Can't beat WHQ. I've had my set unpainted for years, need to get round to that.

    Where are the skeletons from? I don't recognise them at all.

    Re: Harry's Quest

    Horribly good painting as always Harry. For your skelies you look to have gone with brown as your shading - have you thought about and/or tried a blacker shading at all? I only ask as I have a ton of undead to paint up and was thinking of doing the blacker shading similar to the skeletons in the undead army around WD 142. Brown shading seems more Tomb King undead, but now-a-days the majority of all skeletons are brown shaded. Ramble over.

    Good to see you did decide to go for it! Can't wait to see your stuff get painted. Knowing you, at the speed you paint at, you'll have finished every monster up to level 10 pretty soon!

    Are you going for the nostalgia route (using older models) or treating yourself to some of the new shiny stuff - ie cockatrice, etc.

    (chants) Harry, Harry, Harry!!

    Wondered when you'd have a go at this, can't wait to see what the hobby machine churns out.... I'll be watching!

    Must be the season as I've just started something very big that I've had on the back burners for a while, hopefully pics and a plog will follow some time next month.

    All the best of luck in your quest (drinks potion of excitement +1)

    I guess you can trust harry to come up with cool projects. I'm especially looking forward to how you're doing the dungeon. Make sure you put a link to this in your signature!

    I even find I'm painting them in a bolder style than I normally use. I caught myself blacklining a chaos warrior the other day.
    I Guess it is partly because due to scale creep you can't use lots of models in a fantasy army but you can get away with it in a dungeon bash. ... and yes, you do seem to be able to get away with an old skool painting style too.

    Best of luck with your project, your painting makes me sick with envy. You shall have a fine looking set of monsters worthy of smiting.

    I can't wait for my little 'un to be big enough to to play.
    Thanks.
    It is an odd feeling playing with my boy. I discovered D&D all on my own. I had to work it out. I sometimes wonder if I am going to take something away from him by introducing him to the games and explaining it all. I hope I don't take anything away from the voyage of discovery.

    Yeah, I tend to roam the "smaller" sections of Warseer every once in a while when I get scared of GW General or something and as it seems it pays off every once in a while.

    Quality work there, Harry. Thanks for sharing!

    Re: Harry's Quest

    Not done the bases on the rats yet ... but I have done the rest.
    All the painting is done but they need static grass to finish them off.
    (I was running out of daylight .... If I had done the grass you wouldn't have got any pictures till next weekend)

    Here are the bats.

    Couple snotlings in there I don't have (pout)

    They are fun to paint up, whomever did the last of the first set you posted, completed a series of them in poses and grins that I feel are the best of the whole collection and personify snotlings.. almost Paul Bonner-like in caricature.

    The bases are a nice contrast, might try something similar on my beastmen bases next.

    This one is my fave:



    I won't post them all but here is a group shot:



    They are a bugger to paint .... they are tiny.

    I can't decide what colour to paint the eyes or if I should just dot in the pupils?
