Some time ago, we undertook an exciting project, painting a Stormcast force for Age of Sigmar. The first two miniatures define the style for this force were supposed to be painted Gardus Steel Soul and a painted Knight Incantor. Thanks to our artist, Benathai, these two stalwarts of the battlefield now stand proudly in their unique green and gold color scheme, ready to lead their force into the heart of battle.
Gardus Steel Soul: A Shining Beacon of Hope
Gardus Steel Soul, the revered Lord-Celestant of the Hallowed Knights, is a living symbol of hope. With his divine light, he leads his Stormcast Eternals war host to safeguard the innocents he’s pledged to protect. His runeblade and warhammer, together with his unyielding faith, make him a formidable force against the enemies of Order.
The miniature depicts Gardus mid-landing, projected from Azyr upon a Sigmarite thunderbolt, his war cloak billowing up behind him. The iconic image, inspired by Black Library novel Hallowed Knights: Black Pyramid, is well known. But as the customer requested a touch of customization, we converted the model. We used a different helmet to add a unique twist to the miniature, and we also gave him custom-made lightnings, enhancing the dynamic feel of his landing.
Knight Incantor: The Living Tempest
The Knight Incantor, a stormcaller gifted in summoning hurricane winds and gales of mystical energy, is a force to be reckoned with. His ability to channel energy into a raging hurricane or send crackling bolts of arcane power to smite those who defy Sigmar’s will makes him a formidable ally on the battlefield.
Our version of the Knight Incantor, like Gardus, received a unique helmet and custom-made lightnings, lending him an air of majesty and raw power. His green and gold colors provide an unusual but striking contrast, making him stand out on any battlefield.
Both Gardus Steel Soul and the Knight Incantor were painted by our artist Benathai, who put in a lot of effort to bring these characters to life. as they are the beginning of a larger force for Age of Sigmar that we’ll be painting in the future.
