Mini of the Month January '13: STALWART COMPANION!

Post by Dez » Fri Jan 04, 2013 9:05 am

It's the return of Mini of the Month! So get fresh blades in your xacto knives, knead up your greenstuff, straighten your bristles and show us what you've got!

January's theme is 'STALWART COMPANION'. Thinking along the lines of a demon sword-bearer or a grot oiler. A Sidekick, Henchman or Helper, anyone who might stand in next to a larger character and provide a minor (yet colorful) role. Batman and Robin. Sky's the limit, so go nuts. Multiple entries are allowed and ENCOURAGED!!!

Make sure you post a Work In Progress shot (NO or MINIMUM paint), as well as the finished product. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT MoTM IS A CONVERSION CONTEST, so no stock models!

BE FINISHED BY 11:59 January 29th, voting starts on the 29th and runs until early January 30th.

So welcome back, and let's see those entries! Please leave your questions here. Good luck everyone!

TELL YOUR FRIENDS! The more entries the merrier. First time converting? Throw your hat in the ring! This is the place to get some constructive feedback. Please link back here if you are posting in your WIP or Blog threads and spread the word!



I guess I would go with something like "sidekicks" or "helpers", maybe even stretching so far as "henchmen". Thinking along the lines of a demon sword-bearer or a grot oiler. Anyone who might stand in next to a larger character and provide a minor (yet colorful) role.

I was planning to do some chaos cultist conversions, would that be eligible? Very basic stuff really a couple of cadians to increase the number of cultists I have.

I have some ideas, this seems fun, and it goes nicely with last month's theme.


Who won last month anyway?

I'm going to use an old Cadian Commander and Regimental Standard to replace my current plastic ones as I don't feel like my current Commander Mini fits the story. I'll type up a story for the regimental standard. This is really an excuse for me to get them done. lol But whatever still see what you guys think

Shame a conversion is needed, if not, Reinholdt, the Gobber speculator (Mercs - WM) would be perfect

You could always do some cutting and greenstuffing on the model, convert him up a bit to make him look cooler. I have no idea how conversion friendly privateer press models are though.

This was part of a commission piece I just finished, and it fits the theme so I figured I'd go ahead and post it. She is a Slaanesh pleasure slave bound by the feet of a deamon prince (princess). She is originally from the Dark Eldar vect set. I sculpted the tongue and greenstuffed her chained cuffs to the larger chain the deamon princess has on her belt. These models were a challenge since they're metal and I'm not use to that.

Far be it from me to let Xands entries go unopposed, I present to you, Cultist Sally!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Its pretty much done, got bits from all over to make this one, and even carved him a quarter chaos star where the aquila symbol used to be, and a scar on his face.

Sally is a bodyguard for my cult champion, once a highly decorated IG officer, sally turned to chaos after a life of being teased for having a girls name. Now he serves the prophet that revealed the truth of the universe to him and never makes fun of his name, for everyone is but a dog in the eyes of the chaos gods.

Imma paint this guy up, should make the carving more visible.
