Mysterious mini

Started up this mysterious guy last week...

Actually, while writing this the model itself is finished, and I am building the base. Should finish him in the weekend. I love these old school models from the 80s...

And if you, like me, still have the first Citadel painting guide (the one with John Blanche's wonderful dwarfs vs skellies diorama) you will probably remember the mysterious mini quite well...


  1. Hmm, can´t guess it. I would think either a chaos warrior with axes, or perhaps an orc.

    Btw. I have a question for you.

    When I start an army project, I often stop painting efter the main characters are done, because I just cant find a way to keep painting the same miniature over and over again.
    It takes me about 2-4 hours to paint one regi/squad mini, and it is a lot of time. So my question is, how do you do it, how do you find the motivation?

    I really appreciate any help you can provide :-)


  2. Oldschool mini with oldschool-ish paintscheme but painted in your amazing clean style is the way to go! Looking forward to this!

  3. Painting guide Orc, Love it!!!!!

  4. Orc commander with two axes !! I'm right?

  5. Orc with two cleavers. It says "LEADER" and "GW 1985" on the tab.
    Tonight's update on the model: Base is ready for primer.

    Kimnis: I think I'll return to your question in a future post. Keeping momentum is indeed on of the harder things in this wonderful hobby. So many minis to paint, so little time...

  6. Man! I loved that Orc from my first copy of Warhammer Fantasy Battle. I never got my hands on it though. Jakob I am so excited to see you paint it.
