Lord Varlak

varlak600

My first commission, a classic Games Workshop Psyker model, very much in the garish style popular at the time. This was the character used in the classic White Dwarf battle report “The Death of Lord Varlak”.

It’s interesting how styles have changed. This is a one piece metal model and that as it always does shows, particularly when viewed from above. There’s also a sparseness of detail, leaving the painter free to add their own. A modern miniature would be a lot less likely to have such a blank cloak for example.
