Bestial strength

The tribes of Or are back hunting across the plains of the Alderans! I am experiencing a rare rush of inspiration that is pushing me to explore once again my personal corner of the AoS setting and I hope there will be more of them coming in the close future.
This one must be my favourite conversion for the Son of Or up to date. The pose just works very well (credit goes, once again, to the amazing Kairic Acolytes kit) and the small greenstuff additions are quite subtle and natural if I can say so myself.
Big inspiration for this project (and for my ghurians in general) comes from Frazetta art and from the very excellent Jacque-Alexandre Gillois sculptures of the Vorag barbarians back in the early 2000 (still think those are the best barbarians sculptures available today).
I also treated myself to the Darkoath Warqueen miniature today! She will be converted into a leader for my warband but not before I finish sculpting some more tribesmen... I need some archers!

Back to the plains

Good Morning!

Since last post I have received lots of nice messages and emails of support for which I am incredibly grateful! Some of you even made spontaneous donation which I really believe I don't deserve but again, I was delighted to see how many amazing people gravitate around this hobby.

Since you were all very vocal about your wishes to see some of my works again I decided to go back to my Ghurians this sunday  and revisit one of my earlier conversions: the horn blower.

This fellow has a very important role within the tribe. He is the one entrusted with the holy Jagdhurn, whose notes announce the beginning of a holy hunt.

The decision to revisit this conversion comes from the fact that I am back working on my Sons of Or and have found in the Kairic Acolytes kit the base models I sought for my ghurians. In the past I used the bloodreaver (back then the only suitably naked human model in AoS range) for this project but after seeing the acolytes kit I knew they were more in line with what I had in my mind when I envisioned the Sons of Or. Barefoot, no marks or tattoos, a potentially quite sober look and a great base for conversions as so many hobbyists have proven with their work in the past year (first and foremost Duncan Rhodes amazing spearmen). So I bought a kit and started doodling with them back a few months ago but then shifted my attention to other projects and lost focus. Now I feel like coming back to them and I am working on three of these at a time with plans for many bestial additions to the band: sabertooh beasts converted form gryph-hounds, winged black krakaros and the creation of a new leader for my hunters: Or-Sha, the bride of Orar, based on the amazing new Darkoath Warqueen.
My ghurians will son be expanded then so keep an eye on here for more Or-worshipping tribal shenanigans!

Sale time

Good afternoon everyone,

Due to some unexpected circumstances involving a robbery and not having any insurance in place (a lesson a young adult has to learn at some point) I will be forced to put on sale some of my miniatures to sort out my finances.

As much as I do not enjoy having to do it, the following miniatures will be put on eBay in the next few days but before doing that I thought some of you might have been interested in getting them without the hassle of an eBay auction... So here we go, these are the minis and the prices, which take in consideration the retail value of the mini itself plus the time I spent on each.

Please note that the price of each miniature is EXCLUDING delivery charges that will be charged separately

Stormcast eternal 1: Price: 100 
This model was painted as a test for a colour scheme I had in mind for the stormcast eternals. The buyer will get a step by step tutorial on how the marble effect was achieved complete with pictures included in the price that will be sent to them via email as part of the purchase.

Stormcast eternal 2: Price: 100 
This is the second model I did with the marble technique. As the first one the model will come with a step by step tutorial on how to achieve the marble effect included in the price.

The Alluminarch of Anaryn: Price: 250 
This is the leader of my Anaryn warband I created last year. The conversion is pretty complex and involved a great amount of different bits taken from various kits. The model have been painted to a high standard and is an excellent collection piece.

Warrior of the Alluminarchate: Price: 75 

This is the test model for my warriors of the Alluminarchate I did last year.

Warrior of the Sons of Or: Price: Price: 75 
Created two years ago as part of my warband from the plains of Ghur

If anybody is interested or would like to know about any other work of mine that is not included in this list, please contact me at

Thank you all!
