  • Notes :
    • White Dwarf : September 2019 has an article dedicated to Gotrek! (For more information just visit its post.)
    • There we read :
      • Gotrek’s miniature details :
      • Gotrek stands victorius over a pile of dead skaven, the Master Rune of Kragg Blackhammer held in his left hand, the Fyresteel Greataxe Zangrom-Thaz held in his right. Though not a Fyreslayer, Gotrek’s dyed orange hair and beard clearly link him visually to his kinspeople from the Mortal Realms.
      • Brian Nelson says :
        • The shoulder pad is based on a Stormcast Eternals design. In the story it belonged to one of Gotrek’s acquaintances and I liked the idea that he’s started to integrate himself in the Mortal Realms picking up bits of wargear here and there.
        • His new Axe shares design elements with those wielded by the Fyreslayers, such as the burning brazier in the head. I added a dwarfen knotwork to the axe head to hint back to Gotrek’s past in the World-that-Was.
        • From the front you can see Gotrek’s missing left eye – he lost it the the story Wolf Riders , written way back in 1989. The story would be later featured in TrollSlayer.
        • Gotrek’s dispay base features mounts of dead skaven. The model also comes with a 32mm base for gaming.
      • Anja Wettergren says :
        • When painting Gotrek, I used quite a light colour scheme so that he would stand out of his dark base.
        • I used Kislev Flesh for the basecoat of his skin, then shaded it down by carefully glazing and blending the colours in to get a smooth texture to the skin.
        • Lastly, I allied some very thin glazes of red to the areas of skin I wanted to look a bit more gnarly, such as around his missing eye.
        • When painting his tatoos, I practiced on a piece of paper first, identifying the basic shapes and paying attention to the negative space(the distance and shape between the lines) as well as the lines. I used a neutral light grey to carefully sketch out the design on the figure before refining it with darker colour of the tatoos. I also mixed in a bit of the skin tone with the tatoo colour to make it look more natural.
