I was really excited when Scale Creep invited me to take part in their Heroquest challenge.
My love for Heroquest is well known among the Oldhammer community.
I can still remember opening that sweet box on Christmas. Ripping the shrink wrap away and accidentally trimming off the gargoyles horns in my haste. I swear it looked like sprues to my young eyes!!!! That was it. I was hooked on fantasy miniatures from then on. BROOOOOADSWORD!
I played for hours with this game, and still do on occasion. I know, I need to make a new Heroquest comic report. Don't worry I have been thinking on doing that. Maybe after the Oldhammer weekend. When things slow down a bit.
So the challenge:
- Paint one of the models from Heroquest.
- Dont muck around with it too much, a reinterpretation isnt what is desired, just a new paint job on an old model.
- Rebasing is allowed.
After pondering which hero or monster to choose. I decided on the skeleton.
Boooooooooring! But wait!
Notice the scythe head? In the monster cards that came with the game the scythe is the opposite way. I'm sure this was either an artists mistake/interpretation or with the printing some how mirroring it backwards. Anyway I decided to give it a try, because how else are you going to spice up a boring old bag of bones.
