Well, it has been discussed throughoutly elsewhere, and I don't want to open this again here.

But if we assume this is Mentor (and that they are not the same person :roll: ), there would be still room to make another mini for Morcar/Zargon (perhaps as he appears in the Marvel comic) - which would be great.

Having said this, I love the mini and the idea behind it. I had dreamd about sculpting Minis of Morcar and Mentor myself, but of course I have not this level of skill. I'm somewhat envieous now that someone else had done it... But of course my main feeling is just excitement it has been done. And moreover, in such a good way. Only complain is the Warhammer style slotta base.
Have a look ;)

Your beautiful work inspired this.

It is available for purchase here.

You can also order it in a high resolution material called
"frosted ultra detail". The image was printed in a more durable but lower resolution material called "white strong and flexible".

Well, I did my version of this mod for the last Xmas Xchange. Documented the "making of" with photos, too.
Never posted it, though, as we all wanted to wait until everyone had received their mini, and some of them were delivered only months later...
As for the printed mini, I think the sculpting is cool. Only, to match the game illustrations, Mentor/Morcar's hair should be a bit more "voluminous".
Have a look ;)

Morcar/Zargon ~ Mentor.... the same man. Each a facet of a mind shattered by the powerful sorceries that he sought to control. A harsh price the entire world must pay.
So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.
If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.
