Who is Torgillius the Chamberlain?
Ulfenkarn was once home to the brotherhood of sepulchrists known as the Pact Mortalis. Torgillius was a member of their order but turned his back on them, taking their research into grave-sand phylacteries and throwing in his lot with the vampires that came to rule the city.
The chamberlain’s knowledge of grave-sand means that his master can now deflect wounds that would otherwise destroy him, making Torgillius one of the most trusted men in the Cursed City. He has also developed the ability to project his will into the diseased vermin in the city, allowing him to spy upon the populace.
Torgillius the Chamberlain is the tally man, the ledger keeper of atrocity. While the more powerful denizens of Ulfenkarn sate their bloodlust, it falls to Torgillius to make sure the tax return goes in on time.
The Warhammer Quest sets are bursting full of fun, characterful sculpts like this that challenge the painter. For this set, the aim was to recreate the art style of the box, throwing characters into stark relief. We have a full guide on how to do this in the Patreon Courses. Essentially, you change the style of precoat applied, from zenithal to aside way OSL. What is key for this initial layer is the red hue. You need a hellishly saturated, chromatically intense red for that base! Then you can modulate with black and white before building the colour scheme.
