Turnip28-Sludge_1

A very Happy New year to you all! So lets get stuck into the mud of all things Turnip and Sludge shall we. I’ve been sitting on the fence with this particular potential project and it wasn’t until a good friend of mine went all ballistic with a Sludge army that things began to change. As with everything like this other friends soon followed and before I knew it I was super excited about starting a Turnip28 army with all the root veg trimmings finished of with Sludge gravy! Yummy!!

In usual fashion I went about finding models to suit my theme and began a blitz of 3D printing to stock up on bits that will go nicely with the Perry Miniature boxsets I have just bought. But to start things off I decided to make a few characters that will be the centre of the army, two of which I shall introduce to you today.

The Spud Witch! Deeply rooted ( yes I went there! ) in evil ways, the rotting soil of her creations are things of abject horror and make even the most steadfast of turnip knights dump their spuds and quake in fear. Rotten to the core and loving it, she is the Queen of Spuds, bane of worms and mistress of roots.

She also has a skull rodent familiar for no other reason than why not.

Second character and one of the Spud Witches favourite pets is Boar. Boar is a rather large and aggressive pig and his pussy black eyes see everything. Keen on truffles he also has a taste for turnip knights and practically anything that annoys the Spud witch. Loyal to the root and as angry as they come, Boar is the ultimate battering ram, manure factory and

I purchased this model from a talented 3D artist called Alexei Konev and 3D printed it using a printer at work. The detail of it is amazing and the skin texture is especially great and a joy to paint. Now you may be thinking that you recognize this pig and as it was pointed out to me on Instagram it’s actually from a game called Blood Bourne. I think it works wonderfully as a centre piece for a Turnip horde though and after looking into Blood Bourne a bit the aesthetics of that game work well in the Grim and the Dark corners of all things 28.

I will leave you now with a few images of the modelling phase and primer phase. I always like to see the working process and will make efforts to do more of them.
