Warpriest and Gryph Hound
Posted: 29. 01. 2021.
The Excelsior Warpriest is one of the six playable heroes from the WHQ: Silver Tower core game. The original model had potential, but I wanted something much more toned down for mine. I used Reaper Miniatures Brother Hammond, with a mace made from Warcry Iron Golems bits. Another advantage of this design is that I could easily find a similar-looking female version. She'll be joining the gang at a later date, though.
The Warpriest comes with a Gryph-Hound pet. I kept the original mini, but I added a pair of wings from a Warcry Raptoryx. The model is tiny, and I wanted it to take up a bit more space. I suppose it's more of a pygmy griffin than a hound now?
Been getting complaints that my photos with dark background don't properly show the silhouette of the mini (which was fair enough). I found my green backdrop, so now we can have both.
The project is actually nearing completion. I have only one hero left to do, plus the Horrors, Kaeric Acolytes and Familiars. Should get it done before WHQ:Cursed City is released, because judging by the reveals so far I'm gonna be all over that!
If you want a custom miniature or piece of scenery made for you, drop me an email - you can find it in the bottom of the page, together with the Gardens of Hecate Facebook, Instagram and RSS links.
I like the gryph-hound-on a lot - great idea with wings and very neat painting. Looking forward both to the last minis of Silver Tower project and the Cursed City.
This comment might be a tad incoherent, I’m not feeling well.
I love the priest model- I don’t know how you make every model you paint look so good. I’m excited to see what you do with that new stuff they revealed, I like the look of it a lot and was thinking of an inquisitor from the witch hunter model.
@potsiat - Thank you very much!
@jonathan clare - Thank you! I bet that witch hunter will be popular conversion fodder for inquisitors. Sorry to hear you’re feeling poorly. Get well soon!
Wonderful work as always - love the feathers!
Thank you Wonky Dog!
