    1. Thank you, John! I’m glad to hear you agree with that sentiment πŸ™‚ Unfortunately, the head fits kind of strangely and if you try to assemble this miniature and then paint it, you’d like be in for a world of pain or at the very you wouldn’t be able to paint all of the model very well!

  1. Absolutely astounding work mate. Obviously seeing it stage by stage I could tell it was going to be a work of art but seeing it complete is something else. You should be very proud. I don’t think it even needs the tufts to be honest.

  2. Worth the wait! I always go back to what GW shows to see what you have done on your version for comparison – there is no comparison! They should have yours there. FYI, one of your hashtags on Instagram has a misspelling, it’s #paintingwarhammer vs #paintingwarhanmer – you should get the recognition you deserve.

    1. Thanks, Bret! GW generally paints their minis well so I always take pride in trying to outdo their studio team. Thank you for catching that hashtag too. I had no idea! Why in the world that mispelled hashtag exists and is somewhat popular is beyond me! It would be an honor to show up on GW’s site should the opportunity ever arise as well.

  3. Very nicely done indeed, an excellent piece from sure. It was fun following your progress too. I think you are right not to add the grass tufts, the base really doesn’t need them at all and some accidents do work out for the best! πŸ™‚

  4. Amazing work, the contrast is unreal! Superbly painted, your other two Warhammer minis are still great but this one takes it to an even richer and deeper level. The model is also smaller than I thought, so that’s even more of an achievement. A true inspiration! I can’t see how you could improve on this one, he looks so perfect.

    1. Thank you! Contrast is always key when painting for display I think. Of course, it is great to apply contrast (the style, not GW’s paints necessarily!) to tabletop minis too if you want them to stand out and look great. Some of the details on Drazhar really are tiny and painting all of them took longer than I expected so I’m glad that people such as yourself have enjoyed seeing him painted up. It made all of the time spent painting well worth it πŸ™‚

  5. Meh, it’s alright I guess….
    (LoL)
    I think it’s a spectacular paint job and I’m very pleased that you are satisfied with the results , you probably being your biggest critic. πŸ˜€ golden demon here you come.
    I enjoyed reading your closing thoughts on the project.

    1. There’s always one troll who shows up πŸ˜‰ In all seriousness, thank you for the kind words and who knows, maybe there will be a Golden Demon by next year. I’ve thought about painting up an MESBG as well as I can and a painting competition would certainly motivate me to do that. It will be interesting to see when conventions return in the US. I’m guessing it will be close to 2022 if not, in 2022 before that happens. Thanks as always for the support! πŸ™‚

  6. That looks amazing… the blue does work! My old metal Drazar thinks he looks just fine and wants to let you know that the less tassels, the better… πŸ˜›
    I might take up on that challenge… because as much as I did, I came out with my best so far!
    But this…!? Wow… Skill, patience, good eye… and the hands to go with it!

    1. Ha, well I did chop a couple tassels off anyway! πŸ™‚ The painting you see here happened because of practice, patience, and a constant desire to learn and improve. If you focus on those three things, you will continue to improve over time.
