Beautiful, and although you say so simple they are brilliantly painted.
I’m already shuddering at my squad, as you say, so much detail.

As I was painting these I was thinking, but what would Bessron do… and then how do I cut out steps B through Y.

Presenting Astrazonk Pewterfist, scamming his way into the conclave of Hashut’s inner circle. Always making promises of grandeur, smuggling his loot away to hidden stashes.

Kitbash was fairly fast, Zonk sorcerer model, +mage knight steam knight legs, + 2 finishing nails, + green stuff banners, + greebles. Donezo bunzo.

Side note, I really don’t like painting lightning bolts. I’m far too obtuse to paint that many acute angles. Never again, probably….

Thanks to all who participated and voted in the Golden Hat XLI!

A really cool interpretation and wonderful self-build of an unnamed model. the painting is also on a high level.

Such a glorious idea to use the Zonk sorcerer to reinvent Astragoth! I love it, it was the first entry to get my vote. :slight_smile:

How can you not love him! Great conversion and the lightning bolts are winderful.

These look lovely. I have been scouring the net for colour schemes that suit the style depicted in Tamurkhan and I think what you have here fits the bill nicely!

I assume these are at 100% scale on 25mm bases?

Mind me asking what colour recipe you used?

Thanks! Roughly my process for the metals here is:

Airbrush

  • Zenithal prime
  • basecoat vallejo Earth
  • thinned warcolours violet 5 (from front / below)

Brush

  • thinned tin bitz
  • drybrush vallejo brassy brass
  • wash with black mixed with some violet 5
  • drybrush brassy brass again
  • selectively highlight with bright bronze

There are some other colors for straps (browns), cloth (maroons), etc

Neither actually. Models scaled between 85-90% and they’re on 22.5mm bases… muahhhaha, chaos

Hope that helps!

Ooooo sneaky sneaky indeed!

It’s big, it’s hats.
It’s bighats bitches.

Presenting the James Fab Fuggit Zonk Workshop Blunderbusses coming straight to you from the why did I use so many dam colors workbench.

Between the community sourced models and community sourced schemes there’s almost nothing original in here! (Except the Mage Knight steam golem filler, except I copied the idea from @KhamdrimSkyMaster nevermind, loosely Mercurymon from Digimon inspired too)

Really love the Bluebeard Pirate… now what am I missing…
Admiralty Anvil hat banner? Oh right! Brawnderbusses!

Alas, I sits on my walletses and waits. Glad to have this unit done. I couldn’t escape that Astrazonk kitbash without needing to scratch the bighat sized itch a little (lot) more.

Oooof, these look just awesome, even among your usual high standard. Love them!

That’s a big, beautiful regiment. I can no longer look on blunders as quite so pants on the battlefield as I used to, because of how totally murderous they are in TWW

It’s stoopid large for having no repeat sculpts! But could in theory be run as two units still with full command if desired. Sneaky back rank musicians are a power move nobody is talking about.

Blunderbuss envy :heart:

I love having multiple command in a unit, a banner and horn every couple of ranks is a great look

Holy smokes! Excellent work, I keep finding new details. I haven’t seen the smouldering barrel innards before, and I love it. Totally going to copy that.

I do believe credit goes to Laketide Miniatures Army Showcase for that idea.
