If you have any knowledge about serious miniature painting in the '80s, or the early years of the Golden Demon and were asked to name a few of the legends of that era, then Steve Blunt will no doubt be one of the names that spills from your lips.
Well, quite by accident I have stumbled across the great man's blog, and yes, he is still working on miniatures today. Though only updated occasionally, Steve's blog has a gold mine of Old School classic miniatures that would be of interest to readers of this blog.
So as I have done before, I present them for you below. If you want to check out the rest of his blog, it can be found by following this link.
|Who remembers this then? Winner of the Slayer Sword in 1989. Nurgle Chariot!|
|These digital pictures really bring out the detail. Its nice to see this classic model from a fresh angle too!|
|This converted chaos knight is also a long standing favourite of mine. I never realised that the model was fitted with a cape until I saw this image. Brilliant base!|
|His blog also includes many classic Citadel sculpts painted at the same time, but never published, such as this minotaur.|
|Goblin caravan from 1991. How many pieces can you spot from classic metal kits?|
|Astonishing shield painting reminds me of another old legend, Fraser Grey!|
|Steve's 1992 entry at the Golden Demon. Another one of his models not published elsewhere.|
