Ahriman – 10

As most of you know, I have an Ahriman problem. I love painting this miniature in any of his forms, so when a friend of mine lamented the fact that she didn’t have one, I jumped at the opportunity.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Ahriman without a cloak of stars, so I asked her to pick a galaxy she wanted me to attempt and I went with that. I love painting galaxies, I think they are simple to do and effective as well. I finished him today, and after confirmation that the friend loved it, I share him with you:

Ahriman Appreciation thread.

Seeing as I am known for my apparent love of Ahriman, and I have been asked about the range of cloaks I have painted him. I decided a post here would be better than an easily lost thread. So, here were are: Ahriman and his many, many cloaks of space.

Ahriman number 1 – this was the one that sparked it all off about eighteen months ago.

This second one is the one I did for the tutorial. I thought that would be it then, but oh how I was wrong…

This version happened during the paint-a-thon I did. 12 hours of non stop painting in order to raise money for luekemia. He now lives on my desk at work.

Ahriman number 4 was his 40K incarnation. I painted a vortex on his cloak and thought I would be done with the miniature. Again, I could not have been more wrong. The next four Ahirman I painted were for the diorama for Golden Demon.

This took a long time to construct, earned me a commended entry and was a lot of fun to build. The Eye of Terror on his cloak was tricky to get right, but I surprised even myself with it.

Ahriman number 9 was a commission from a good friend, who wanted a star being sucked into a black hole on his cloak. So, here he is in all his shiny glory!

Let’s have some images of those cloaks all next to each other.

Other appreciation things I want to share are some of the amazing pictures people have drawn for me and sent in:

Last, but not least, I have to pop up one of my favourites from Abaddon and Teal:
