Ideas and inspiration often spring from seeing other’s work, and the community’s come up with some really varied versions of the Boromite Broodmother – the matronite. As a result, we thought it would be great to showcase them here!
Well-known Boromite afficianado Gary Martin, Matt ‘Rocky’ Schreiber and Steve Lemieux were all dedlighted to show their inspiring matronites, whilst Warlorder Tim Bancroft added his own as a example of what you can do with only basic painting skills.
For another superb and interesting matronite painted for Warlord, try Chase Murphy’s Momma Blue.

Warlorder Tim Bancroft
Antares Warlorder Tim Bancroft struggles to paint normal sized figures these days so has moved on to doing the best he can with vehicles and larger models. We’re waiting on more photo’s but the one below was taken at the Southampton Sluggaz tournament in January 2018 and is here to show what can be done even with a shaky hand and deteriorating skills!
This particular matronite found a particularly rich vein of lapis lazuli (a deep blue metamorphic rock) which she found incredibly tasty and would not be moved until she had mined it out. Though she initially turned a rich, dark blue she is now reverting to her natural colour as the lapis leeches out of her system, and looks very different in different lighting – much like an ancient painting using the blue tint ‘ultramarine’. She is difficult to handle in battle, not because she is ‘ornary but simply because she would far prefer to be tunnelling through rock somewhere! Her names are varied, as a result, but most often she is referred to a Lazy “Lapis” Susan.

And at a recent tournament in Southampton, we saw three of the broodmothers all together. All were named, but we can’t reproduce all the names, here. Nonetheless, on a Taskarr Tundra table, they look pretty impressive!
