This week I've got another update on my Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower customization project: the Darkoath Chieftain.
He's is one of the playable heroes from the core game, actually a champion of the Dark Gods. Once again I opted for completely replacing the original miniature with a conversion. My chieftain is based on an Iron Golems Dominar (Warcry), with a Chaos head (fromt the Manticore kit, I think) and Nighthaunt Knight of Shrouds blade. I stayed quite close to the original idea, though. Even with the pose.
For the design and paintjob references I pored over the artwork of Brom, mostly. I'm really happy with how it turned out. I'm planning a female counterpart (still looking for a suitable head), and I'm tempted to do a whole warband of them. Maybe an Iron Golems counts-as for Warcry.

very nice and very sober. Very nice indeed.
Excellent work as always. I need to experiment with such unhealthy skin tones - looks great!
Grand re-invention of the Darkoath Chieftain and thoughtful use od Iron Golems parts. I like the way you used reddish mild tones to subtly add color to metals and skin. Looking forward for the female version and the whole warband!
