Scotia Grendel 10015: Daemonic Altar (June ’19 Terrain, Neglected Model Challenges)

Scotia Grendel 10015: Daemonic Altar

Today we have a model that’s very much both a Neglected model, as well, as – obviously – scenery. As with the rest of the Scotia Grendel stuff I’ve shown off here over the past few years, I’ve had this piece since the 1990’s but never managed to paint it. I did start it a couple of years ago, but my interest in completing it petered out due to, well, a lack of interest until quite recently.

What turned my interest around was the scheme that I (recently-ish) painted the Balewind Vortex in, followed by the Warhammer Underworlds Nightvault Arcane Hazards. (that’s a bloody mouthful, innit?) The deep blue-greens appealed, and the overall model felt like it woul dbe a good fit in with the other pieces done in the same scheme. So I went with that, and it still took over a month, but I finally got it done at the very end of June!

So now I finally have another piece that can see the light of a tabletop, and as you can see above it fits in nicely enough with the general undead theme that the rest of the similarly-painted GW models have. Done!

      • At least 10 years ago I bought it, I got a whole batch at the same time, everything else was painted within 2 months, but the throne and alter have sat accusingly ever since ! LOL

      • Ha! Nice work getting it all done that quickly. I did a whole lot at the time, and then nothing until the last couple of years now that I’ve been picking them out and getting a piece or two done sporadically..

  1. That’s the kind of altar you don’t mess with, right enough! Looks excellent done up in the same scheme as the GW stuff, and fits right in when they’re all together.

  2. I really like the way you painted the stones as it is pretty unique but still looks really sharp. The picture with the other terrain and minis is really, really nice. You’re on a roll with all of this great looking terrain! 🙂

      • I find that I almost always take inspiration from GW’s paint or I react to it and try to put a new twist on their ideas which are hopefully an improvement so I totally understand. You chose a good idea to follow with this terrain 🙂

      • There’s no shame in taking inspiration from GW’s schemes – and especially with something like LotR, where it’s based on an existing IP – but there are also so many great ideas to rip off/be inspired by out on the internets as well nowadays! 🙂
