Mordheim 2019: Mad Meg

Hess Poison Breath vs. Mad Meg.

In 2019 we had the privilege of meeting up with some friends in Helsinki for an event, Mordheim 2019, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of GW’s apocalyptic skirmish game Mordheim. Mike Anderson sculpted a wonderful model, Mad Meg, to commemorate the occasion based on Dulle Griet, a painting by renaissance artist Pieter Bruegel. While we converted one of the models for our Sisters of Sigmar warband, we had another unmodified version of Meg, and I decided it would be fun to finally get some paint on her!

Finally, two years after Mordheim 2019 I painted Mad Meg!

Her fish was painted with a few metallic paints from the Scale 75 Metal and Alchemy Golden paint set.

I painted Meg’s shoes and various bags as different shades of leather, roughly following suggestions from a Vallejo Wood & Leather paint set.

Meg faces down a Blood Fiend and Skull Familiar (sculpted by Ana Polanšćak).

  1. 2 years to paint a mini--amazingly fast!! ;)
    Great job on this one.

  2. I have been working on Eldar that I bought something like 15 years ago, so 2 years seems very fast in comparison!

    All the browns really suit the setting and the sculpt, and the fish has a great expression of surprise.

    1. He he, yeah, I can think back to many models I have had unpainted longer than Meg; it is a good way to put things into perspective. Glad you like the fish and its expressive eye.
