Maynard Flux, Champion of Tzeentch - Project Change XVI

Presenting Maynard Flux, oldskool Champion of Tzeentch. Warrior, sorcerer, winemaker.

Maynard Flux, Champion of Tzeentch

His marble-effect book I've decided is a spell book, so he gets The Gift of Magic. I quite like the effect, which I needed to break up the undetailed surface of the book. Well, I say undetailed, due to a combination of casting defects, the age of the model and being stripped it's not at all crisp or clean, so it needed a pattern. I'd like to try it on larger models with flat surfaces, like Eldar, or an oldskool Land Raider, or maybe some Retribution Myrmidons.

Maynard also has Featureless Face, and Rune of Tzeentch. The rune happens to be on his featureless face, meaning it isn't so featureless - but this is okay as THIS IS THE CONTRADICTORY NATURE OF TZEENTCH. That, and a wizard did it.

And (like Inconstantine Bowie) he deserves the runes to spell out his name and describe his attributes.

Painting one of these old Champions of Tzeentch is a welcome break from all the Daemons of late. Though, there are so many more Daemon models aligned to Tzeentch than there ever were Chaos Warriors. I may get round this by collecting five different versions of each champion - one on foot and four on each of the different Discs of Tzeentch.

Hmm...Maynard of Tool and fame? When you mentioned the wine-making angle, I thought of how it looks from his chainmail as though he's been to a press party! Great details and I like how his facial skin looks stretched and membranous!

You totally got the reference there. I think Maynard's cult of followers may adopt the name "The Perfect Circle".

Thanks!

Great Old School™ Chaos Sorcerer!

Mine definitely pales in comparison, but I figger the original hex slotta base maybe gets me some bonus points somewhere?
