These are the first two miniatures completed for my HeroQuest project.
The wizard is kit bashed from a gene stealer cults magus, with a chaos marauder head. I wanted him to look like an older, and yet more powerful version of the Hero Quest wizard. I chose to give him a gloved right hand to add some narrative to the miniature, perhaps his hand is damaged and scarred from a spell gone awry ore a previous battle. It is also a sneaky nod to Luke Skywalker. After I kit bashed the mini I felt it had a look of old Luke about it, so I thought he really then had to have the gloved hand
I wanted this mini to look like a mash up of the classic dwarf from old school Warhammer and the new Khadaron Overlords. I also wanted hm to have the look of a well travelled treasure hunter. Head from Northstar, backpack from bolt action.
Lastly here is a sneak peak… initial design for the hero cards started.
