HellGate – Part 16 – King DralRamith and the wondering kingdom.

I thought I’d take a quick break from all the OTP Terrain posts.

 

“Mourn not for what is lost but for what will never be again” – King DralRamith 

What is a King without his castle?

He is a man with a wondering kingdom.

There was a time when DralRamith’s kingdom was rich, powerful, feared and respected.

However after decades of unrelenting and savage war with the dark and twisted legion known as The Black Plague, as well as the smaller scale but equally as continuous attacks from smaller warbands, the weary kings realm was reduced to nothing more than a solemn, slow-marching patchwork of veteran Knights, some infantry and lowly peasants.

I finished painting King DrathRamill and his driver Hax Mire.

The king is actually converted from both of these models from Fireforge.

I used the upper torso of the one on the right and the horse riding legs from the other, with a bit of cutting, shaping and tweeking. I also used a left arm from a pilot from the Astra Militarum Valkyrie kit.

Hax Mire was more straight forward as he’s mostly made from the Delague Necromunda kit. With a head from the Valkyrie kit also.

The throne was cobbled together from my “Terrain Bitz Box” and turned out looking suitably “HellGate-sih”. A nice mix of Tech and Old School fantasy.

I’m particularly happy with the Raven on his shoulder but not so happy with the stripes on Hax Mires head. I think because it was a curved surface I had trouble getting them straight. Any help or advice on this would be much appreciated.

I’m also happy with the Kings left eye but not the right one haha.

Cheers

  1. Very nice, though for most of the text i thought Max was the skull in the box on the front, it wasn’t till i noticed the chap on the back that I realised who the driver was!

    Great conversion, and as said above with the original figures shown you can really appreciate the amount of work that’s gone into getting him to sit right (pun intended).

    Straight lines in curves are a pain in the arse, Have you thought of doing one thick line then adding the centre line in the original helmet colour? that’s how I’d do it.

    Cheers Roger.
