Drazhan the Younger

Another small update of one of the wight heroes - only this time it's not much of a hero, but rather a constructor, sculptor and an architect - Drazhan the Younger, the Magnificent Maker.

The whole idea with him was to kitbash a version of a Necrotect from the Tomb Kings roster that would fit with the aestethics of my army - the conversion can be found in the link above. I painted him in the usual color scheme for my wights - only now he's not a warrior, but a craftsman. The metal parts are rather minimal, the patterned black and yellow cloth is also small and it's the red hat that's the focal point of the composition - I tried to create an impression of an building site foreman (who also often wear differently colored headwear).

Besides being a gaming piece, he's also narratively a creator of constructs (like the Effigy of Death) and a reason to start creating my own takes on iconic Tomb Kings constructs such as the Ushabti, Tomb Scorpions and Bone Giants.

Zlyshko was very satisfied with the Effigy he managed to bring back to life, but one was not enough for his plans. The fact that all remaining ones were destroyed didn’t help. Only way to deal with this was to get their creators to make more. They may be all dead, but that wasn’t as much of a problem nowadays. A wide search was conducted - it wasn’t easy, for the architects-sculptors-engineers that made those marvels often omitted their own name out of humility. Only one - Drazhan the Younger - was honoured (or prideful) enough to be buried with all the information about him. An egocentric, brilliant creator and a harsh overseer, Drazhan was most pleased to be able to glorify the Death God with his creations once again and with them, drive away nonbelievers from Varsavia.


  1. Taki wyrośnięty martwy krasnoludek :D
    Mogłeś mu dorobić brodę byłby fun ;)
    A tak na serio to mega sympatyczny ludek.

    1. Wszędzie tylko krasnoludki widzisz! ;) urwę mu brodę jakiemuś zabawkowemu mikołajowi i doczepię jemu, będzie do jakiegoś miniaturowego ogrodu, jak QC zauważył ;)

      No i dzięki ;)

  2. Pierwsze skojarzenie mam takie same jak Pepe. Figurce tylko brody brakuje. Choć ogród w którym mieszkałyby takie 'krasnale ogrodowe' byłby najbardziej upiornym miejscem w okolicy. ;)

    Całość wyszła świetnie. :)

    1. Mówię sobie, że dopóki trzecia osoba nie zauważy krasnoludkowych motywów w moich pracach, to jeszcze znaczy że problem nie jest wcale po mojej stronie ;P


  3. Podobnym metalem się już kiedyś zachwycałem, ale na tej łuskowej spódniczce toś przeszedł sam siebie! Narzutka z ludzkiej skóry też niczego sobie :)

    A undeadowy konstruktor bardzo na czasie w kontekście nowych wypustów GW!
