Bela Lugosi’s not dead

Here is the vampire from the undead warband I’ve been working on. This was quite a quick model to paint (owing to the fact that most of the model is concealed beneath the cloak) and was finished in a day. I chose to use predominantly cold tones when painting the model in order to reflect its undead nature. The only exception to this is the splash of red blood on the sword. This adds a bit of contrast to the rest of the model and adds to the vampiric feel of the model.

The vampire was converted slightly from the stock model which came with a halberd held out to the side. I always thought that this looked a little awkward and this initially put me off the model. However, with a simple hand swap the models has a much more natural and fluid pose. Also, a sword seems like a much more appropriate weapon for a dashing vampire  (and is much more useful in the game). Overall I’m very pleased with this model which turned out much better than I expected. Now all I need is a name for him…

    Excellent work there Andy, next time we’re at work together we shall have to have a brainstorming session for naming our nocturnal friend 🙂

    Maybe Count Murnau after the director of the 1922 film Nosferatu. It also fits with the Empire’s Germanic/European theme.
