Hello,

Recently we had the opportunity to create an Ulthwe-themed Wraithknight, converted to have a kneeling pose and placed upon a winter-themed base.

It was a really nice project, and it came out nicely – visit our gallery and take a look at the pictures below – pay attention to little details such as Ulthwe-characteristic pattern, visor and soulstones!











How do you like our approach to Ulthwe?

Very nice contrast between the black/bone scheme and the purple gems. Not to sure about the pose though, looks more like he is tripping over that rock instead of kneeling on it scince he seems out of balance. The kneecap should have been converted to take the weight of it onto the rock instead of the shin and the other leg should have been more bent and placed closer to the models center of gravity.

It looks very organic and robotic at the same time, probably because of that blending you have done with reds and purples.

I agree with Moriouce about the pose, although it does somewhat highlight the otherworldiness of the creation as though it was fluidly skimming over the obstacle - the 'magic hands' help give the impression of deliberacy.

Love the painting, the gems are fabulous and the face plate thing or whatever they are called, that 'display' look superb and the love the base. However that pose just looks really really awkward.

Sweet work. The pose is much more interesting this way and I love the dim red light under the mask.

Definitely one of your better pieces. I agree with much of the praise here. The subtle mask is excellent. The colours are tasteful. It isn't airbrush abuse.

I also agree that the pose looks pretty awkward, but I admire the attempt at a new pose.

I have one other complaint with this, considering how smooth and clean all the blending and decorating is the edge highlights on the black are comparatively really weak. They're too bright and too thin especially considering how subtle and basically perfect the airbrush highlights are.
