For your viewing pleasure, here are some renders of my latest sculpt. I’ve always harboured a vague desire to paint a vampire but somehow never come across one that has been quite what I was looking for. So I thought I’d have a go at making my own!
As with my Dragon Maiden I’ve aimed to work in a similar scale to the Warhammer range, although this guy is a fair bit bigger than she is. (32 mm to the eye rather than 30, and considerably more bulky!)
As usual I’ve tried to exaggerate all the details enough so that they will print well and be enjoyable to paint. This is actually version 2 of the vampire lord, after I discovered that amongst other things I’d made the fangs far too small in the original and they were basically invisible in the print. Fingers crossed I got it right this time…
I’ve tried to convey a sense that this guy has been around for a good few years with the slightly shabby chainmail and cape, but I also intend to add some more signs of wear with paint. This is now on order from Shapeways so if it prints nicely then I hope to be able to share a painted version in a few weeks!
