Ghazghkull Thraka is a legendary Ork Warlord who has terrorized the galaxy for centuries. He is known for his brutal tactics, cunning intellect, and unmatched strength on the battlefield. Ghazghkull has waged countless wars against the Imperium, other xenos races, and even his own kind in his quest for power and domination.

Ghazghkull first rose to prominence during the Third War for Armageddon, where he led a massive Ork Waaagh! against the Imperium. Despite the best efforts of the Imperial defenders, Ghazghkull was ultimately able to claim victory, cementing his reputation as one of the most fearsome warlords in the galaxy.

Since that time, Ghazghkull has continued to lead Ork Waaaghs! across the galaxy, gathering more and more followers to his cause. He is said to possess immense psychic power, which he uses to manipulate the minds of his enemies and even to control the battlefield itself.

Ghazghkull is a towering figure, standing well over ten feet tall and weighing several tons. He is heavily armored and armed with a variety of deadly weapons, including a massive power klaw that can crush even the toughest armor.

Despite his brutal reputation, Ghazghkull has a loyal following of Orks who see him as a savior figure, destined to lead the greenskins to glory and conquest. His name strikes fear into the hearts of his enemies, and his presence on the battlefield can often turn the tide of a battle in the Orks’ favor.

This version of Ghazghkull Thraka was painted by our artist Luke, and won him a bronze trophy in the Masters category of the Kontrast miniature painting competition in 2022.

We’ll be honored if this miniature encourages and inspires you to paint your own version. But if you feel like the task might be too much for you, you can always contact us about the painting service we provide.

Knight Castellan, inspired by General Grievous

This particular Knight Castellan, converted and painted by our artist Rejven, whose inspiration was the infamous Star Wars character General Grievous. If you look closer, you will recognize the armor color, the design of its head, and the collected lightsabers that were a trademark of this character. Even the weapons in its arms are in the iconic lightsaber colors!

General Grievous

General Grievous, for those unfamiliar with the Star Wars universe, is a cyborg commander who served as a leader for the Separatist army during the Clone Wars. He was originally a Kaleesh warrior named Qymaen jai Sheelal, who was transformed into a cyborg after a near-fatal crash. He had his body enhanced with advanced droid technology, including four robotic arms. This allowed him to wield multiple lightsabers in combat.

Grievous was a ruthless and merciless opponent, responsible for the deaths of countless Jedi knights and Padawans. He was known for his fearsome appearance and deadly fighting abilities, and was often depicted as a formidable opponent even for the most skilled Jedi.

The Knight Castellan is similarly known for its impressive combat abilities. It carries a variety of devastating weapons and is also particularly durable, able to absorb even the most devastating attacks.

Knight Castellan vs General Grievous

Despite their differences in origin and universe, Knight Castellan and General Grievous share a number of similarities. Both are basically war machines with fearsome reputations on the battlefield. And both can be sure to strike fear into the hearts of their enemies.

Harlequin Troupe

Harlequin Troupe is the basic unit in a Harlequin army. According to Games Workshop, “In battle, Harlequin Troupes move fast and hit hard, relying on speed and skill to annihilate the enemy before they even have time to raise their guns. Once in combat, the Harlequins are in their element, performing a lethal dance of death while their masks shimmer with their foe’s worst fears.”

With the colorful and decorative clothes they wear, Harlequin models require some effort to paint. Even if you only want them for gaming.

Sure, you can skip all the details, but then where’s the fun of fielding a Harlequin army?

I have painted my own Harlequin force before, and these were a commissioned unit. If you would like me to paint something for you, please contact us and we will arrange it for you. 🙂
