Strigoi

A collector's item from the Vampire Counts range of Warhammer Fantasy. I've always liked the look of this model and when I saw it used in a conversion in an old blog, I knew I'd have to track one down!

This model has been painted using reds and oranges as the theme colours; befitting a vampire who's had a good drink lately. Some of the model has been drybrushed to give it tones and highlights, whilst other parts have been overpainted and blended to a higher degree. The variant painting styles seem to have worked nicely with each other to give a pleasing effect overall.

The contrast of the red flesh tones with the steel-like claws and white teeth and eyes is also a neat result. This is in contrast to the muted leathery tones of the rope and clothing that the Strigoi is wearing. This is one vampire not to bump in to on a dark night in isolated rural areas...

I've always liked this model, reminds me of the roided-out anti-Mr. Hyde from League o' Extr. Gentlemen...
