Yo ho, yo ho, a slayer pirate's life for me!

Recently elevated in the paint queue - dug him out whilst at my parents recently. Based on one of the fantasy Dwarf Doomseekers I received amongst a trade, I had the idea to turn him into a dwarf slayer pirate for use in Mordheim. I'm useless with the greenstuff, so he was sent off to my friend Si, of the blog The Rising Sign to give him a hand to hold the pistol and a parrot to sit on his shoulder...

  1. I remember when those Doomseekers were originally released, wow that takes me back a little!

    Great concept and conversion, can't wait to see it all painted up. :)

  2. Yeah, Storm of Chaos I seem to recall?

    The idea for this guy came from the concept artwork for the Warhammer Fantasy MMORPG. Great source of inspiration for Mordheim - the building designs in particular were great. The slayer pirate in the concept art had a parrot with a little feather mohawk - I need to try and add one. I think he'll be a hell of a lot of fun to paint!
