|Nemesis The Warlock WIP - The alien has only been primed "Vallejo" Heavy Red|
This month's randomly themed attempt to try and reduce my overwhelming collection of metal, plastic and resin miniatures has been well and truly side-tracked by my wish to paint up at least a couple of old plastic pre-painted "Wizkids" miniatures based upon the "2000 A.D." comic book series "Nemesis The Warlock". Indeed, I have even gone so far as to purchase a box of "Frostgrave" Cultists from "North Star Military Figures", as well as a few of their Cultist Sci-Fi Accessory Packs to create a horde of Termight Terminators...
Such sudden adoration for Pat Mills and Kevin O'Neill's co-creation is entirely due to my recent reading of the character's colourfully-inked "seven-issue necro series" by "Eagle Comics", and as a result I'm rather keen to at least try and replicate some of the sword and sorcery madness the Feast of Zamarkland. For now though, I'll just be sticking to the title's two lead antagonists, the “fire-breathing demonic alien" himself, and his arch-nemesis Torquemada.
|Torquemada WIP - The Grand Master of Termight has been undercoated and had his armour painted|
As a result both of these "Indyclix" figures have been cut from their clicky-bases, super-glued onto approximately sized plastic circular bases and primed. In addition I have also removed Nemesis' horribly bendy Sword Sinister and replaced it with a far sturdier double-handed variant from a "Frostgrave" Soldiers sprue.
Somewhat frustratingly, I have also decided to simply replicate both models' colour schemes. I had hoped to perhaps paint Torquemada in the all-red armour first worn when he was just Termight's Chief of the Tube Police. But felt this would invariably clash with the large flowing red cloak the Warlock wears. Terra's bare-armed Grand Master will therefore be attired in silver-armour with a purple cape.
|Plaguebearer WIPs - These daemons now need to be washed and dry-brushed|
In addition to this rather surprising dabble with the leader of “the underground resistance organisation sworn to destroy the tyranny of Termight”, I have also managed to assemble and prime four more plastic "Games Workshop" Plaguebearers. Once finished these lesser daemons will greatly bolster my "Age Of Sigmar" Nurgle Host and provide me with a twenty-strong regiment of the Bilesword-wielding warriors.
