Plunder for the Ironclad Fleet [Nov 3 2022 - Great Weapons are Great]

I challenge you to do a hammer head helm at some point or a basking shark helm with the dwarfs head visable inside. Fits your theme. Fish helm dwarfs

Riding crustaceans maybe?

Or a goblin shark helm with a mutant dwarf face kinda projecting out where the jaws would be…

Loving the sharkfin hat. Beautifully realized. Nice painted result too. The molten metal on the hammer and base is awesome.

Product of a weekend without painting supplies. It has been on my list for some time to immortalize the ass in my lore book.

Or maybe this is just lyrical rampage for Spetum Rhetoric’s next studio album. I’ll let you decide.

Here comes the Fabeltjub Palanquin (Tjubbly Fablanquin?) of Hashut! (and/or perhaps also Walhut)

Big shouts to the below for making this one happen:
My first @Fabelzel model
Printed by @LaketideMiniatures
Inspired by @Zanko palanquin
Walrus Statues gifted by @MichaelX
And of course the Lings of @tjub

Converting effort on the palanquin itself was minimal. The dais itself was made from a Space Hulk standee and bits from a Chaos War Shrine. I slapped a bit of crackle paint on the sorcerer for good stony measure.

The rock turtle was somewhat inspired by Dark Souls 3 crystal lizards and rock turtles. One of the most cathartic exercises in the hobby for me is sprue whittling and scratching together crystal shapes. Turtle texture was just drawn lines with a sculpting tool coming back over with a flat rock just as I do cobblestone bases. The entire genesis of the turtle was to lazily avoid heartache of having the Tjublings support it, and I robbed extra Tjublings for future golems anyway so needed something to fill the space.

Painting was mostly my standard scheme with darn’d extra light sources. Almost went lava golems but I thought the dusty purply stone was better for the color overall. Rest assured Tjublavalings will arrive in good time.

One of my favorite entries. A wonderfully creative build, and the paint job is understated yet striking. Very well done!

I would love it if only for the splendid mix of models. Fabelzel and Tjub in one entry? Yes please! Your superb paint job does the rest. A+ entry

A very cool entry. Bringing @tjub lings to 28mm battlefields is a worthy cause in and of itself, but using them to exalt Lord @Fabelzel ‘s sorcerer? *chef kiss *

I’m afraid I can’t say anything,
The conversion is really good and at first I thought: Ohh just painted grey…

But the more I look at the Mini, the more I see. Different colours in the light, the different figures and their composition.

In the simple looking colours, a total masterpiece.

Definitely one of my favorites…somehow I completely missed the rock lizard. Kudos to you for the Dark Souls influence.
And combining miniatures from different CDO sculptors is a wonderful idea.
Keeping it in house!
Super nice entry!

Me like Fuggit, I missed the rock entirely, yet for the composition and the scheme, as I saw it I knew it was your and that got my 2nd certain vote after Deded s one.

Awesome mix of all the CDs sculptors in 1 entry! Well done man!

Thanks all! It’s lovely to work with community designed minis (and mini-minis). Excited for the bastards project to take off so I can finally give something back.

Have you any plans to build a unit of acolytes of hashut around this petrified sorcerer?
I think only zanko has covered this unit type, at least that i know of…
