An ancient being who was present during the earliest days of Mythoss, the vampire elder known as Lord Strazhul has slept undisturbed for nearly a millennia. Rising from his tomb, his chalk white body frail and thin from ages without sustenance, his first goal is to feed, and then he will explore this changed Realm he has woken into.
I made this “emaciated” vampire as a way to use some extra skeleton limbs I had available. I liked the idea of having an ancient bloodsucker who had just woken from a long sleep and whose body was thin and weak. I painted the limbs “chalk white” along with the head, which I found on Shapeways by an artist named Emil Wickman / Urgo. I loved how the head had a thin, almost sad look to it and it worked great for my design. It is also a custom head from a new artist I have never used before!
The body on this is from a Carpathias. I added some “scuffing” paint to the armor to give it a bit of wear and I added some soft goods pieces from my fodder bins. I loved how the purple cape came over his shoulders a bit, almost like an old woman wearing a ratty shawl!
This head is actually one of the “custom heads” I plan to talk about tonight on my “Mythic Conversations” live stream. That show runs every Wednesday night at 7:30 over on the Mythic Legions Cabal Facebook Group. Don’t worry if you can’t catch it live, however. I always repost the videos on my YouTube channel, which is “Mythic Customs”. Check out the show if you want more details on this head and other customs Mythic Legions noggins!
