Miniature Gallery: The Shruuf

The Shruuf is a greater demon from the classical German roleplaying game “Das Schwarze Auge” (The Dark Eye). I think he looks very stupid. That’s why I like him so much. I painted him earlier this year - in May 2012 - during holidays on Lake Garda, Italy.

Before painting I had to decide how to base him. First I thought about using him for Warhammer Fantasy. But finally I opted for a large 40K base to field him as a Greater Demon or Demon Prince for my Warhammer 40.000 Chaos army.

According to Dark Eye fluff the other names for him are either “The adipose Blooddrinker” or “The Annihilator”. He has four horns. The mightiest demons have as many as seven horns.

This old school miniature was published for the Armalion tabletop game from 1998. Today the model is sold by Ral Partha Europe Ltd.

I painted him on a small balcony in Italy.
