Doombull Project Finished

Looking back I think this project has run close to the 12 month mark. There’s still the temptation to tweak the paintjob, especially the wings but I don’t want to risk going too OTT. Effectively this guy is ready to be varnished. The little glass health potion on his belt is just tacked on at the moment because varnish would...

Painting the Doombull – Part 2

I put in some much needed time painting my Winged Doombull recently. Although I was inspired by a Tzeentch themed Doombull from an ancient White Dwarf issue aswell as the Tzeentch themed content from Warhammer Online when I began this project I’ve felt rather stuck when it came to painting it. Because of this I’ve ended up...

Painting the Doombull – Part 1

It’s been really nice to do some painting for a change as it’s been so long since I’ve really sat down and painted pretty much anything. I expected my collection of GW paints to have dried out long ago, but going through them I only ended up throwing away 2 that were beyond use. I was planning to invest in a fresh set...

Doom-Bull gives you Wings! (part 2)

I got to admit I am so pleased with how this model is finally taking shape. The wings are near completion. I’ve spent most of my free time (which I’ve had much of lately) working on filling the gaps under each of the feathers to ready them for casting. There’s still a bit of filling and the...

Doom-Bull gives you Wings! (part 1)

This has been a long time in the works but this week I devoted some time to trying to get my winged Doombull. This post is just about the progress on the wings. Once they are finished I’m going to have some casts made, so there will be some up on the Store. They each measure 50mm across and 100mm tall and will be a good match...

Winged Doombull

UPDATE AT BOTTOM OF POST So after much deliberation I’ve settled on building a Beastmen as my army for Warhammer 8th edition. I like the fact they are one of the least popular forces being collected but I also think I can make them into a great looking army (most important part for me). My starting point is the theme of the army,...

Healing Potion

For a long time I’ve thought of using real glass in my miniatures. Whenever I see a model with some kind of container holding liquid I think what a shame it is we can’t use real glass. The trouble is finding something small enough to fit the bill. This particular item will be hanging from the belt of my Winged Doombull once...
