We did it, Boss!

Here is some oldhammer again! Maybe some of you do not know, who Grom the Paunch is. So, this is the story.
The Broken Axe Goblin tribe lived in the eastern end of the Mad Dog Pass, south of the Crookback Mountain in the Dark Lands. Grom was lured into an eating contest, the object tough Troll flesh. Determined to out-eat his opponent, Grom stuffed himself full. For days afterwards Grom lay moaning and groaning, the Troll flesh regenerated at a quicker pace that his digestion could break it down. He swelled up until finally a balance was reached. From then, Grom was known as the Fat or the Paunch of Misty Mountain. Grom roamed the mountains, plundering what he could, but no major strongholds were taken of the Dwarfs. Meanwhile his Waaagh! grew further with, among others, night goblins of the Red Eye Mountain and [[Forest Goblin]s]. Grom eventually turned his army westwards into the Empire and devastated Stirland, Talabecland and even going as far as Hochland. Dieter IV watched and did nothing while his population fled and sought refuge in the major cities. Nuln was sacked and the Palace of Gold and other great monuments erected by Dieter were laid to waste. No part of the Empire was safe for the Greenskins.
This vignette is depicting Grom`s advance in the suburbs of Nuln, with hordes of greenskins swarming the deadly cannons encampments. The scene composed in total of 13 dead goblins, 1 dead dire wolf 1 maybe-dead troll, 1 goblin boss reporting, 1 giant cave squig and Grom himself, dancing on the back of his mount. Somewhere in the mess you can find 3 cannon crew bodies. Most of the base was sculpted from the scratch, but oldtimers sure will find some parts from various plastic greenskin kits.

I`m accepting commissions. PM me, if you interested. Also, you can see the sculpting guide, regarding this piece, on my Patreon account. WIPs, step-by-steps and more on my Patreon

As a long-time orks&goblins player I can only marvel it this amazing piece. Your way of adding texture to everything is unique and instantly recognizable - the mark of a true artist! Grom never looked better. Of course the level of sculpting and the insame attention to detail should not go unmentioned! How abozut an alternative name for this: GROM´s Aptheosis!

It's amazing to see what people can do when technical limits have just fallen away. I only wish I could look at it in person for an hour or two. HAIL GROM!

I rated very few 10s here, so few that I remember most of them. Your work is always a 10! From composition to painting technique it is simply impeccable. And you are not hiding anything and the close-ups you posted emphasize even more a perfect technique . Not to mention Grom is quite a legendary figure in Old Warhammer universe. Thank you for sharing this with us, sir!
