Project Log: Altburg - Townhouse I, Part 10

With the work I have done on the roof the house is starting to get the final shape. I also started to build a stone chimney and added details to the left side of the house. Soon I will be adding plaster to the walls, rivets to the beams and planks, and shingles to the roof. I also plan to add some windows to the roof but I didn't came up with satisfying design yet.

Arachtian

Necromancer and master of dark arts known only as Arachtian was infamous throughout the old world. His frequent appearances within the cities of the Empire made him one of the most wanted man. Elector counts employed the toughest witch hunters to hunt him down. Rewards on his head were spiraling. He was never seen in one place for too long. He was constantly on the move escaping various holy groups, mercenaries and witch hunters.

Upon his arrival to Sylvania, his path crossed with one of the most vicious vampires known to man, vampire Kain. This hateful vampire lord saw a great potential in this corrupted and foul man, who already had a great knowledge of dark magic. Kain realized immediately that he would be of great assistance to the New Night Order since his abilities to rapidly raise big groups of undead servants were unparalleled. His nomadic lifestyle had a specific purpose. Everywhere he traveled, he was in search of potent artifacts and forbidden books. Most valuable items in his collection were ancient artefacts and tomes from the deserts of the old. These unholy scripts gave him unique insights into arcane dark science which was long gone and forgotten. In one of his experiments and rituals he apparently succeeded in creating a levitating dead host, a living corpse like zombie only faster and stronger. This of course is yet to be confirmed on the battlefield but it is no wonder that commander Kain wants him by his side.

The news of his involvement with Kain spread throughout the Empire and caused fear and concern among men. The word is that he is working day and night on raising the new breed of undead warriors that shall serve the New Night Order. If this turns out to be more than a tavern rumor, may Sigmar help us!

The model I have used for Arachtian character is a Necromancer miniature from Scibor Miniatures. This is the first non GW character in my collection. I really love this model and it fits perfectly with GamesWorkshop miniatures. The size is spot on. To read more about this mini and for some WIP pictures follow the link to this post.

Project Log: Altburg - Townhouse I, Part 9

Continuing the work on the house. I moved to the upper floor now. Apart form the basic construction, I'm doing mainly timber at the moment. Afterwards I will be adding stone and plaster to the walls. Everything is going as planed so far.

First I constructed the wooden floor which is supported by the beams bellow. Then I added additional wooden beams to support the floor, especially the balcony. Then I started to raise walls and work on the balcony. I deconstructed the balcony of the Tabletop World Townhouse II model and with a bit of reconstruction and tweaking I made a new, smaller one which fits perfectly with the new house. Then I moved on with construction and started to add some details, mostly timber. And this is where I'm currently at. I did a second entrance in the back of the house which will also have a crane and serve as a little storage room.

Mortreich's Black Knights WIP

This is where I'm at with my unit of Black Knights. Currently I have finished four of them out of twenty-four planed. They are basically Mortreich's Black Guard only mounted. I am painting them in the same color scheme and I gave them the same shields. I think they will look fantastic next to each other once I finish the whole unit. Big blocks of infantry and cavalry led by mighty Mortreich will be a terrifying sight to see on the battlefield for any opponent!

But first I want to finish the Midgard townhouse. Can't wait to get back to my Undead! 💀
