Malus Darkblade

This is my version of Malus Darkblade in 28mm scale for Warhammer Fantasy. The figure started out as a simple conversion created from pieces of Warhammer Dark Elves Corsairs. I had always in mind the fantastic illustration from the cover of the book ‘Malus Darkblade’, and as the conversion progressed, I knew I would have to do some serious modelling to achieve my expectations. Therefore, in the end is nearly a scratch built model, with only the hands, the sword, and back part of the torso being plastic parts. The figure won bronze in Single Fantasy on Golden Demon Spain 2009.

For those of you who do not know Malus Darkblade, I will tell you that he is a Dark Elf Noble of evil renown in the Warhammer Fantasy world. Malus was possessed by a Daemon called Tz’arkan. His quest to rid himself of this Daemon is legendary. At one point he succeeded although it cost him his own soul. It took many years after that to track down the Daemon again and win his soul back, only to have Tz’arkan imprisoned inside him again.

When leading his armies to war, Malus rides his famous Cold One steed called Spite and wields the fearsome Warpsword of Khaine. He is a very dark character; he can summon Tz’arkan and allow him to control his own actions to become more powerful. This is great risk though, as while possessed by Tz'arkan he can attack his own troops as well as enemies.

The darkness of Malus inspired me in one of my darkest times to paint in cold and deadly colours, reflecting my mood at that moment. I want to thank all of my friends for their support, specially Elias Alonso (Morsi) for all his help and for collaborating on this figure.

I hope you like it, and as always, comments are very welcome!

Hola tio, cuantísimo tiempo q no se nada de ti, de la morsa y del alfon Estaba mirando tu blog y me quede impresionadísimo tio, lo q has mejorado en estos ¿dos años desde q estube en madrid? no es normal. El elfo con el leon es la caña, el orco y el marine amarillo super bonitos, pero esta fue la q mas me impresionó. Vaya expresion de cabron prepotente q tiene!!!!!! Desde el rawnee del alfon no veia ninguna mini q me impresionase tanto por su "humanidad". Me encanta ver q los "new school" os pasais el estilo "clasico y barroco" ese tan... digamos "de antes" por donde queréis. Creo firmemente q haceis arte, y tú eres uno de los q voy a seguir con mas atención. Un abrazo tio. Adrian

Por las otras figuras tuyas que he visto tienes más nivel que en esta, pero aun así no creo que se merezca un 8.1... yo creo que más bien un 9, te pongo un 10 a ver si subes... ¡¡Un saludo!!
