Combat Cards - Kyrax Doomquake

In my first post about Combat Cards (here), I talked about the cards and showed the two miniatures I'd painted to match the models on the cards. In this post, I present the third of my homages to these classic miniatures.

The card:
Original Kyrax Doomquake
And my tribute:

My version of Kyrax Doomquake

This was a challenging model to paint, because the blue was a strange shade that I didn't have, I ended up mixing a little purple into a light blue to get it. The white was tricky (as white always is), and the odd shade of purple for the shield rim took some experimenting to get right. The shield design itself wasn't as tricky as I thought it would be, although the design itself is not something I would ever have be able to create!


  1. Great work. These were just about my first exposure to Citadel miniatures (outside of Heroquest) and sum up everything that I loved about the miniatures and games back then: full of character and humour. The names alone conjured up histories and worlds and the paint schemes are forever etched on my mind. Keep up the good work and let's see more - maybe a Chaos Dwarf or Sathash the Proud, with his book of forbidden knowledge.

    1. Thanks! I've spent many a long while over the years, shuffling through these old cards, looking at the beautifully painted miniatures. I am currently painting up more of these, but I only have a handful of the miniatures on these cards at the moment.
