Welcome back to Mini of the Week, where every Friday I will find a miniature from around the web that exemplifies an aspect of our hobby and share it with you.
|Warplock Jezzails by Morback on Blog dé Kouzes|
Blog dé Kouzes always has amazing models, both painting and conversion wise, and these Jezzails are no different. The classic Jezzails models are getting a little long in the tooth and look a bit out of place amongst the new Skaven models. These guys fit in perfectly though and look awesome to boot! They look to be mostly made from the Stormvermin models, but with a gun from the Skittari from 40k, and a bunch of green stuff.
It's fairly simple, but extremely effective and very professionally done. Once these guys are painted up it's hard to tell that they are not standard GW models. I love the gas mask on them, it just adds so much character, same with the chunk of warpstone on the underside of the gun. The painting is super smooth and crisp as well and looks just like an 'Eavy Metal model. I featured Morback's Stormfiends from the same army awhile back, and with these guys the army just keeps getting better and better. The color choices are fantastic and really suit that classic Skaven look. The basing is just as good as the Stormfiends and looks completely believable as a snowy and slushy plain. I like how the leader of the unit who has no helmet, still has a gas mask hanging below his snout as a he squeaks out orders. All in all this a super well done, characterful, and unique unit. I highly recommend following the link below to their site to check out more pictures of this unit as well as the rest of the Skaven force which also includes a really cool looking Hellpit Abomination.
Be sure to check out more views of the models on Blog dé Kouzes, and show the artist some love if you like it.
