Seerlord Morskitta

Recently I built the Screaming Bell kit and I thought I'd take the opportunity to have a second Seerlord model.

I wanted to have a model I could use on the Bell but also put directly into units when needed. The plastic kit comes with a Seer and if you buy a Furnace as well then you have a spare model anyway.

One of the things I wanted to achieve was to capture the essence of a slightly deranged despot extolling his troops to greater and greater insidious acts. The basic model fits this pretty well but I made a couple of changes.

First, the hand holding the bell was replaced by the ringed hand from a Stormvermin champion. This allows the model to be pointing backwards and gives the impression that he is screeching at some indignity.

Second, I put him up on a rocky pedestal so he towers over his minions. However in keeping with the image I was trying to create he is perched forward almost in a state of apoplexy.

I like the finished model - I still need to tidy up some highlighting - as I think it really captures the demented individual I think a Skaven Grey Seer is.

I like the way it has turned out. What do you think?
