Props to the 2blackdragons (http://www.the2blackdragons.com/html/black_dragons_english_htm.html) for making this monster for me:







They are working off of this concept art:

No wings? I love it either way, I'm interested to see it once it's painted too.

If you don't mind me asking... How much did that cost you?

It is going to have wings... and feet. Razz

You could get 2 and a half FW Bloodthirsters for the cost of this guy.

I think it's a decent interpretation of Hashut, the Bull headed god of fire and metal.

That's pretty slick. Do you have a good OSL painter lined up for it? And no I am not fishing here. Just that if you don't I could shop it around for you.

Well, say what you want about the price - that thing is looking awesome.

Any luck tracking down someone to paint this bastard for me Scott?

OMG man. You are going to need to buy an army transport case just for him. He is massive! Looks fantastic though! Shocked

For the next pic set, they are going to do a size comparison with a FW Bloodthirster. Apparently he makes one look small.

No man, I would reccomend shopping it around on the forums. It's too big for me to reccomend someone to go to work on it. The good people will want a mint.

I'd start in the general discussion area of any forum where you want to hock it. Mods can always move it if they have to.

Try coolminiornot and WAMP to start but you might also find some luck on some of the bigger forums like warseer and such.

I saw that someone on CMON suggested Chest of Colors, I checked out the gallery there and one of their painters, Ana has painted the most impressive mini I have ever seen:

http://chestofcolors.com/gallery/anas-works/warhammer-40000/miniature/image/eldar-harlequin-shadowseer/

If she is available and in your price range I don't see how you could go wrong with her!

Thanks Nathan.

It's certainly an impressive figure, however the artistic style of that painter is not quite what I am looking for, for this piece.

Technically, she's amazing. Any of her models are a work of art for sure. They'd be beautiful on the table. BUT, looking at her work as a whole, I find it's a little too 'pastel' a little too 'soft' and a little too 'impressionistic' for me. All of her figures look like they are ripped from a dream or a vision. Like they're floating through fog or mist.

Even the mini you posted, while great, shows it. Amazing layering, amazing blending, but everything is in soft, muted colours that just flow into each other. Nothing pops and nothing strikes me as being as sharp as I want it. Take a look through all her fantasy stuff, and I think you'll see what I mean http://chestofcolors.com/gallery/anas-works/warhammer-fantasy/.

I just got a quote from Orki on CoolMiniOrNot, and his style is much more what I am looking for. A harsh, realistic edge.

As an example of his work:


The blood on the axe, the lava on the base, the weathering on the horns. That's what I'm looking for.

This is also one of the best applications of OSL I've ever seen on anything in my life, so I think that really speaks well for him so far as well.

I agree, that's a great paint job and probably a better fit for your mini.

Well after an intense bidding process, I have decided to have the piece painted by Matt Cexwish, from Germany.

Matt is a frequent Golden Daemon winner, and received a Slayer Sword in 2011 in Germany.

His Golden Daemon results page is here:
http://demonwinner.free.fr/peintre.php?id_peintre=564

And his Cool Mini Or Not gallery is here:
http://www.coolminiornot.com/artist/Matt+Cexwish?browseid=4336947

6 Golden Daemons, 1 Slayer Sword.

A lot of his entries are Dioramas, so the big scenic base shown in the concept art should be safe with him.

I would say that piece is in great hands.

He's a real rock star of a painter and by all accounts a really decent dude. You are going to enjoy his paint job. Good choice!
