Today I would like to show you the Staff of Tomorrow. Hmm, this sentence sounds strange indeed…
Anyway, now I think you know what I am working on 🙂

It will take some time until the whole huge miniature is finished…
This miniature is not really new, it dates back to late 2015, but I still haven’t posted the photos here until now.
The reason was that I was not quite happy with the quality of photos.
Unfortunately there was no way of re-taking them, so all I had was a batch of photos taken in quite sharp light, some of them slightly blurry, and so on. While you can see the kind of direction I took with this model, some subtleties are lost under what became a reflective glossy surface thanks to the strong light here.
Well, sometimes you cannot get what you want…
The general request was to take the Archaon model and turn it into a lord of Tzeentch, with a big cloak and huge banner, all decorated with freehand paintings. I think it was the last model I did in this theme, and in result of my escape from blue Tzeentch models I turned towards the Slaaneshi ones that I am still painting…
My inspiration for the freehands here were some occult symbols and pictures I had in my collection. I was pretty happy with this model and am still not really satisfied with the photos. Not showing this model would be a mistake though, so here it is in all its 2015 glory!
Last August I presented some WIP photos of this Chaos Lord. I eventually finished this model in late 2016 but the photos have been sitting on our computer until now.
The general concept for this project was to incorporate color schemes based on both fire and ice in one model. Not exactly in a realistic way, but more as an artistic image of struggle between the two.
There was also another model based on a similar concept, so I will post the photos as soon as I receive them from Mahon.
I hope you like the idea. It’s not a very fresh paintjob but still one that I haven’t presented in a finished version until now.
I’ve been painting this “ice and fire” model for a few days now, but haven’t posted a single WIP picture yet. Sorry!
The general concept is to represent the clash of ice and fire in this Chaos Lord model. Hope you enjoy my interpretation 🙂
I promise you that my next mini wil be really sweet and will have nothing to do with barbarians!
