Middlehammer fun! Egrimm Van Horstmann on Chaos Dragon

 So, a long time in the making, but this is my latest commission, a big old mid-90s character model: 

Egrimm Van Horstmann was a Chaos Sorceror of Tzeentch, but formerly a wizard of the Imperial Colleges who turned to The Dark Gods, here mounted on Baudros, his two-headed Chaos Dragon. 

More pics after the cut: 

Not really a huge amount to say about this guy, he's a bit out of my mid80s-early 90s collecting niche, and a bit 'goofy' for me, but he's not as silly as some of the other stuff from this period. The dragon in particular is lovely. 

One thing I will say though, as a metal model he was an absolute sod to pin and fill. The castings were way off and I had to do a LOT of filling and filing to make him fit together properly. He's using some fairly heavy duty pins too, as he's top heavy, very 'S' shaped, and very spindly in places with it. In spite of that, I really enjoyed painting him and for once I'm really pleased with how he came out.

Anyway, here's some more photos. 

Hope you enjoyed it! Until the next time! 


  1. Good work and great to see you blogging again. Keep it up.

  2. What a glorious monster! Definitely brings some memories, beautiful job!

  3. He is slightly goofy, but it's a model with a lot of character! The dragon is awesome. Great painting!
