Sands of Time (Myersalome)

You will find no Prince of Persia here, even though the title can be misleading. I used it for my scene with Myersalome, Queen of Havoc.

The model was released by Morland Studios and I used a resin wall that I had in my bits box. I think it was a part of a Fenryll model that I painted in the first years in the miniature painting hobby. 😀

My version differs from the original concept art and no longer can be considered a representation of Myersalome. The original concept art is undeniably adorable. Unfortunately the subtle facial features didn’t translate well to the sculpted model…

So I decided to take an alternate direction, and made mine an Arabian-themed sorceress, standing next to a portal leading to another reality, plane or land.

To counterbalance the heavy composition on the right I placed the dragon a bit differently than in the original version.

It was an interesting project to work on, I could play a bit with textures on her dress, on the wall and on the cracked vase, but I would prefer to see the face as subtle and pretty as on the original art.

Nymert, or Daemon Princess of Slaanesh

I’ve been working for a large Slaaneshi-themed project for some time already and I have the opportunity of letting my imagination go out of the box with it. While judging at the Hussar 2016 contest, I found this lovely model at one of the stands.

I immediately knew it would make a perfect addition to the army, because even though originally Nymert looks completely different, I instantly imagined her painted as a larger counterpart of Deaemonettes of Slaanesh! Not quite a daemon prince so maybe a daemon princess? 😉

I won’t be writing too much about the model, as you can easily find it in the Pegaso Models range, and my concept was to paint her much like a larger version of the daemonettes I painted a few months ago. My color scheme for them was not quite like the official one, and this one is a slightly modified copy of the same scheme.

I wanted her to look different, more out-of-this world, blending the two aspects you can often see in Slaaneshi models. The sexual or sensual and the scary, dangerous. So when my idea to add something to her belly, like a maw or vagina, was accepted, I went on to add it here. And if you are not sure you can handle it, don’t search for vagina dentata pictures… 😉

Elementary, my dear Watson!

Ok, maybe Sherlock never said that, but it’s cool nevertheless. Hope the miniatures will look cool as well 🙂
