Ghorgons and Giants and Bloodthirsters... oh my!


This month has been quite a hectic one, and has included painting up these three monsters for Turbo Tape Games, a Norwegian computer game company that is working with a Warhammer license.

I know that the Ghorgon is being used as a prize in a promotional launch competition for Turbo Tape Games' iOS game Warhammer: Arcane Magic. Here's the promotional text from the Arcane Magic site:

Turbo Tape Games is pleased to announce a contest for an exclusive Ghorgon miniature hand-painted by Dave Taylor! The Ghorgon is a many-limbed, ox-headed slaughterer, possessed of an urgent need to devour and destroy anything it can catch -- and there are more than 60 individual skulls making up this Ghorgon model that had to be painted separately. Painter Dave Taylor has been working in the wargaming industry since 1994. Through his production studio, Dave Taylor Miniatures, Dave has built, converted and painted thousands of miniatures for a variety of games. To participate in the contest, please visit arcanemagicgame.com

Head to the site, click on the widget in the right and follow the instructions. This competition is open to most folks around the globe, and it would be super cool if the winner was also a regular reader of this blog : )

I leave you with a few shots of the Gorgon you could win : )




Cheers
Dave

  2. Any chance of getting that Ghorgon on a round base?

    1. I just went with the base the client provided (ie. The one in the box), but I'm sure it wouldn't be too tough to change if you wanted to.

  3. I love the way you've treated the bone, the texture is brilliant!
