A delivery I've been waiting for for over a week has finally arrived. More dryads, spirit hosts and a Treeman. Plus a load of basing stuff. Had a quick play around last night, think I'm finally a bit happier with the basing now.

Hopefully over the weekend I'll get a bit more done.

Also wanting a whole load of GW terrain at the moment, but need to ease up on money going out.

Excellent! I had six Minotaurs and a unit of Bestigors turn up today, but need to finish the Seraphon and some Khorne Juggers first!

Also scored some awesome converted Treekin on eBay recently. I am thinking they will not take too long to paint so can lump them in with something else...

When AoS came out, several players here bought starter boxes. But the interest has vanished since then.
I still have the content of starter box and some Chaos Knight and Mauraders on Steeds. We are trying to get into the SDK warscroll system atm. Maybe it will give AoS some boost in our gaming group. My models are still grey. I'll paint them if we get AoS going here.

I've got a bunch of extra Liberators from the starter set and am making grand hammer Libs with extra hammers from the Retributors in the starter.

I think eventually I'd like to get another paint scheme going on a new set of Stormcast. Something about the models have me wanting more and more and multiple factions of them. I'm hoping they go the space marine route and splinter a bit in the future.

I based my stormhost on my local college football team, with my celestant prime named after the team mascot. Also the hammer stormcast have home colors and the sword and spear stormcast are away colors.

That reminds me, I still have most of them to paint.

My Start Collecting Seraphon box came in today, and that is a seriously intimidating amount of plastic to assemble - I think there's more than the AoS starter set, despite making only half as many figures. I'm eager to get started on them, but I'm curious whether or not I should wash them in soapy water first? Do you have to do that with plastic models, or just metal ones? I haven't washed any of my other models, and they seem fine, but now that I'm getting more serious about painting, I'm wondering if I should get more serious about preparation too?

Post by: RiTides


Sqorgar, the models that you really should wash are (from my experience) just resin models, such as anything from Forgeworld, or Finecast.

To be honest, I've been using a lot of resin models for the last few years, and haven't washed them... but it's a very good idea to do so. What you're basically doing by this is removing any "mold release agent" that is sprayed on the silicone mold to make the resin parts easier to remove. This release agent also makes it hard for paint to stick to the model.

The only models I've really had to be careful about washing are Trollcast models from Trollforged. I haven't actually gotten any Forgeworld models painted, but I have a few and some of them do seem like they could really use washing, too.

But for plastic or metal, it isn't necessary at all, imo.

You know how you can sometimes get models 'stuck' on your painting table, and they then go on to hold up other models from getting done? Yeah, I have that at the moment with two Stegadons. Hopefully will finally be able to shift the big lumps this weekend. However, I did manage to get some other chaps done - an Astrolith Bearer and a Razordon with Handlers!

If the deciding factor was the freehand then... I wouldn't say it was a fair call. I find yours much better, especially the flesh bits. The only things that I'd say need some working speed painting would be the gold areas. Did you wash the horns?

I don't really have a recipe I can share but I can tell you the paints were the Scale 75 skin set, can't recommend it enough. http://www.scale75.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=55_59_75&product_id=131
Iirc, it was a base of Indian shadow, airbrushed pink flesh from above, glazed on golden skin, then going back in with a light glaze of the indian shadow back into the depths and around the nipples and scars, then a highlight of light skin on the scars. There was probably a bit more back and forth with the glazing just to blend it in, but that was the rough idea to it.

That's interesting, seeing as that's the exact same paint set I use for my skin I don't get results that are nearly that good though. I follow the "light skin" tutorial in the little panflet that came with the box, but the end results never has enough contrast between light and shadow, and not enough tone variations. I'll make sure to try your recipe,.

I think the gold was over a lighter base, but probably too bright a gold to use and not washed back enough to fix it.

Very much so. The 25mm bases used to annoy me as you could always guarantee that over time,the paint would rub off the feet of the models you were handling. These 32s make them fit very nicely with no overhang. Plus, those models in running poses can't tip over quite so easily (looking at you assault marines/chaos possessed)

Lord Relictor




Five Liberators




Five Retributors (only two showing, best pic I had)

Great job there Grimbok. I was going to make a thread on how I hate the gold on the Stormcasts, but you did a great job on them. I really like your minis.

So... my picture taking skills are not so hot. I guess I need a cheap tripod and lighting setup? Or mostly need some kind of tutorial, because I keep ending up with blurriness and all the blends washed out. Anyway, here's a few closer shots of the army. I took these ladies/men/lady-men to a 4 game single day, which I will try to oh-so-briefly write up. Maybe as a tactics/unit breakdown more than a game-by-game.

@Grimbok: Those paint jobs are simply superb! Mind telling us how you painted them? Interested in copying your methods for both gold and teal


Report on Your AoS Projects! @ 2016/02/03 13:09:22


Post by: Grimbok


Thanks.

The gold is pretty straight forward.

Black undercoat spray
Retributor gold twice all over
Reikland fleshshade all over
Reikland fleshshade in deep areas again

Until this stage it is easy, standard og bigger brushes.

This is more tricky, needs to be neatly painted.
Highlight with retributor gold except for deep recesses
Auric gold edge highlight
Silver (mitril) on a few raised areas

The teal: kabalite green base color (two layers), coella greenshade on the cloth and along the recesses close to the gold, then highlighted with half/half kabalite/sybarite then a bit of sybarite on a few raised areas. But mostly just kabalite green.

Sotek is a cool color too, but more bluish. Kabalite/sybarite are great colors, but there are many cyan/bluish colors that are great and somewhat underused I think. Very good on the Stormcasts. Perhaps not that good on my new wood elves, back to good old green and brownish colors.

Thats the main strength of Stormcasts, many different and cool paint schemes.

I started playing AoS a couple months ago when someone mentioned I could use the Tzeentch Daemons I had for 40k but never used. I have enjoyed AoS a lot and playing somewhat regularly has also inspired me to crack in to painting some more of them. I run a purely Tzeentch list which has proven to be quite powerful even without any summoning...

So here is my Herald of Tzeentch which is a bit of a conversion with some parts from the Tzeentch Chariot kit, and a cluster of horrors:

Now there is a coincidence - just finished some Pink Horrors myself (still looking for a cheap Herald):

Hello folks,

I have the IoB Skaven, and hope to pick up a WLC or Doomwheel or two in the next few weeks (and loads of round bases!)

I want a black and white sort of look, and just have the eyes and warp forged/warp stone bits glowing purple. I recall seeing a VC army a few years ago done in a similar fashion, and thought that it looked pretty cool.

Would this be easy to do, and quick? I was thinking a black undercoat, Eshin grey base coat, a few heavy washes of Nuln Oil, then dry brush up with lighter greys? Perhaps a few other points of spot colour, like black weapon hafts/shafts/handles, metal or the odd bit of red cloth? Sin City style, I suppose. As you can see I'm not very confident of thsi approach, but time is a major factor and I just want this stuff painted up and on the table ASAP!

Thoughts and critiques welcome!

Cheers,

monders.

My whole Tzeentch army started with this second-hand metal Lord of Change, which sat base coated for over two years. It was probably never going to happen when I was trying to use them as a 40k army...
Anyways his colouring is based on a wonderful native New Zealand bird called the Kea. Not only are they beautiful with their forest green feathers and orange under wing, they are intelligent, and total trolls as well.

Hey all, I just joined the hobby this past June, so I'm not quite a year into it. My first serious attempt at painting, basing, conversions, etc. was for an army of Stormcast Eternals. I purchased the starter box and painted the Stormcast side, and then went and made additional purchases to augment it. I've been lurking on these forums for the past 6 months and the pictures I saw really inspired me to get better and push myself.

Mongoose Matt, in particular I've enjoyed your battle write-ups and really been impressed by the quality AND SPEED of your painting.

I'll have a report on the Magmadroth I've been working on lately very shortly!

Without further ado, the full army:


Total count:
20 Liberators
20 Judicators
10 Protectors
5 Decimators
3 Retributors
3 Prosecutors
Lord Relictor
Lord Castellant and Gryph Hound
Lord Celestant on Drakhoth
Conversion counts as Balthasar Gelt
Celestant Prime

Some of the better pieces:

My Celestant Prime was displayed at the local GW store I started purchasing at, which was a big confidence boost.




I can tell my painting has become much better. The Lord Relictor on the right was one of the first detailed models I did, the Lord Castellant on the left was one of the later models I worked on:


I found I was getting destroyed by armies that could summon when I played at the local GW store, and Stormcast Eternals have no wizards. So I found the warscroll that would fit the fluff and work well for my purposes, which was Balthasar Gelt. I hated his old resin model though, so I decided to undertake my first serious conversion and make my own. I used a left over Stormcast Paladin head, a body and accessories from a high elf mage set, and a Bretonian pegasus knight. The boost to unbinding was exactly what I needed.


Anyway, lots more pictures at my gallery: http://www.dakkadakka.com/gallery/images-98460-50436_Stormcast%20Army.html

I managed to salvage some of the Empire miniatures that I bought for an Imperial Guard conversion project. So far I have 10 handgunners and 5 Halberdiers. It was then that I opted to collect an Empire army rather than WoC on the grounds that I want a nice, bright and colorful army. The plan is buy a Battalion box, an Empire General on a Griffon and some Greatswords. This should give me a grand total of 20 handgunners, 25 Halberdiers, 10 Knights, 1 cannon, 10 Greatswords and a mounted general which seems to be enough for a good AoS army.

As for the colors... probably a Stirland army. Green and yellow look nice together.

I did Pestilens as a separate force - I did consider doing each of the clans with their own paint scheme, but figured that way lay madness. So, the rest have variations of the red and grey (for example, the Stormvermin are all red, Clan Eshin are all grey, and Skryre is a mix!).

I ran Skaven for years in WHFB (6E-8E), and have been sorely tempted to redo them with tasty new plastics for AOS. Stormvermin are my home boys, so I'd be looking at like 2x 30 of them - which is like nothing in 8E terms

I went for the runeson with javelin for the aesthetic. But I looked at his rules and they weren't terrible, so I didn't fret over the choice too much. He's a bit of a ranged threat now, and if I have troops in front of him he can attack over them nicely.

Paints used are in the first pic (which I left in the quote above), though they are a bit hard to make out.

1- Black undercoat/primer
2- celestra grey (two thinned down coats to get even coverage)
3- Nihilakh Oxide - shake it frequently while painting*
4- drybrush celestra grey
5- wash with 1 to 2 mix of thraka green (coelia greenshade should be fine) and lahmia medium,
... focus around recesses, high texture areas, areas you want contrast (ribcage, hands, spine, knees, face, etc)
6- lighter drybrush of celestra grey in areas you want to lighten up (skull, shoulders, rib cages, w/e
7- very light drybrush of white (I used a P3 paint, but any stark/cold white works, avoid cream colors) to add highlight were desired
8- waywatcher green glaze in recessed/shadowed areas, under skull, under ribs, etc), anywhere you want a bit more color or shadow

You might go back and forth a bit, brightening things up with grey and white drybrushes, or bringing them back down with glazes and medium diluted washes until you have the effect you want.

* when painting the Nihilakh Oxide, it's very important to shake the bottle thoroughly before you start, and then frequently while painting - say every three to five models depending on how fast you go, or every few minutes while working on a larger model. The paint settles quickly, and as it does it changes both color and consistency, becoming thinner and bluer as you go, but subtly, a little at a time, and you might not notice if you aren't careful. It basically goes from this cool smokey blue-green effect to basically painting on a thinned down blue wash. It's really important to avoid that, as it's basically the most important step of the process.

Actually, entire ghostly armies have been done based on Nihilakh Oxide over a white/grey undercoat (LINK), and what I'm doing is pretty similar, just worked a bit farther for a bit sharper contrast and a bit more color variation (the green ink, green glaze, and nihilakh are all slitely different hues), which may or may not be what you want.

Not that I can claim credit for any of it, as it's taken pretty much whole cloth from part 2 of GW's pretty great series on painting Nagash (which also features a nice if time consuming blending method on the cloak):

Some more skeleton progress:

Spoiler:

I reached a hang up on the test batch, due to being out of the browns
I want to use, and I can't buy more till this weekend probably, so I've
started on the ghostly effect for the rest of the first block of 30.

I do think the effect's starting to come together, though, and I'm pretty
happy with it so far. Since I can't really progress any further on the engine
or the front skellies until the weekend, so I'm aiming to get the rest of these
skeletons, plus 20 grave guard and maybe, if I push myself, 10 black knights
up to where the test skeletons are now before then.

Here's the list I'm trying to get painted by the 26th for an event:
Spoiler:
Main List
- Arkhan
- Wight King with Black Axe
- Necromancer
- 1 Morghast Archai
- 10 Black Knights
- 20 Grave Guard
- 30 Skeletons
- Mortis Engine

Summoning Pool
- 6 Spirit Hosts
- 3 Bat Swarms
- Terrorgheist

Scenario Markers
- 6 influence markers (gravestones)
- 1 runner (single spirit host spirit, or maybe a Mordheim dredge)
- 1 Flag Marker (Wight King BSB)

I've got a long ways to go...

Looking great Malisteen! Did you not consider going from white undercoat rather than black and painting multiple thin coats of grey on top? Seems much easier :-)

Cannot wait to see more of them. Your Necromancer conversion and the BSB look great too! Can we get a close up?


Report on Your AoS Projects! @ 2016/03/09 14:02:32


Post by: Malisteen


I did consider white primer, but much of the color scheme - basically everything that isn't ghostly green, is actually rather dark and really wants the black undercoat, so it would end up being about the same amount of hassle anyway, and if there's recesses I couldn't reach with a brush, like some of the nooks and crannies up under the black knight barding and whatnot, I'd rather they were black and not white.

As for close ups:

Here's an old picture of the BSB from before I re-primed it. It's half-painted in the color scheme of my old Von Carstein army (LINK), which I sold when I decided I didn't like the look - Too bright, too warm, looked like they were marching to war in the noon-day sun. Plus, after the 8e army book brought back Master Necromancers, I wanted to switch to a more necromantic and less vampyric themed army anyway. Unfortunately, between work and classes, I didn't get around to actually painting any models in the new scheme until now. Anyway...

Spoiler:

The model is a lord of the rings barrow wight, plus a grave guard shield arm, brass wire for the banner pole, and the shield with crow and banner itself are from the empire general kit, with the hammer on the top of the banner replaced with a scythe blade taken from the zombie kit. I also did some putty work on the shield - replacing the 'KF' that was there with a big 'W' for Wilhelm I, a tyranical early ruler of the Empire who Vlad roused as a Wight King during the End Times. I also added a skull design to the banner's shield while I was at it. I don't do much sculpting, but I think these turned out alright.

.............

Here's the necromancer, from before I primed the new base. He's about half painted in the new scheme. He was being done as a test case for techniques I intend to use on Nagash, once I have enough of an army painted to be worthy of the big guy. The robes and hat still need to be darkened away from the ghostly blend with some diluted black washes, some details still need to be painted, and the staff is going to be re-done completely in a darker brown (I'll be aiming for something closer to the bones on the studio model Neferata's steed). Plus the new base needs to be painted, I'm still not sure what I'm doing there. But the overall effect is more or less there.

Spoiler:


More detailed progress on my army can be seen on my hobby log thread on Carpe Noctem (LINK)

Forgeworld's version is pricier, but it's also a dramatically superior model.

Actually, what I'd do if I were playing nurgle chaos is get the glotkin and use the big monster as a greater daemon, and convert the two brothers riding him into mortal or daemon heroes on foot. Which works great as long as you don't plan on using the glotkin themselves.

@Coldhatred That looks quite nice - no need to be so self deprecating!

My one suggestion is that you should try and take the brown paint you used for the body and lighten run a thin coat over the raised parts of the body of the demon while avoiding the recesses. The figure looks very dark to me overall, which usually happens when you run a dark wash over the whole thing - the colors end up muted. This one step brings back a lot of color and depth to a model, and since you are avoiding any areas where one color meets another, it is usually pretty easy.

Saw this done recently, except the little bros were magnetized to either ride Ghurek and form Glottkintron, or rock their own bases as Nurgle Lord + Nurgle Sorcerer + Great Unclean One. Certainly a concept, although personally I prefer a little more conversion done to Ghurek to make him into a more interesting GUO ... but then I also have no desire to run The Glottkin as themselves, because ridiculous uber special characters are ridiculous, uber.

I just unearthed a tomb kings treasure load, including:

warsphinx (empty howda)
6 necropolis snakes (sans riders)
11 empty chariots
necrosphinx
2 catapults (with crew)
1 ushabti
a bone giant
20 old metal tomb guard
10 plastic tomb guard new in box
assorted characters (khalida, heralds, lich priests)

assorted sprues, including at least 3 of the necropolis riders

I'm not sure what all I'm going to do with it, or what all of it I'm going to keep. In particular, the metal and plastic tomb guard look too different to use both. I don't much care for the metal models, but I don't really have enough of the plastic models to make a unit, so I'm not sure what if any of them I'm going to end up keeping.

It's quite a haul, and there may be more coming (in particular, if I'm lucky, five ushabti and the other three necropolis riders). A lot of repair work is necessary, and replacement riders for the chariots at least, and... it's going to be very hard to maintain my focus on the models I'm painting for the upcoming store event with all these neat new toys to sorth through and tinker with....

I am currently at the alpha stage of what will be this year project for my hobby, namely a full Stormcast Eternals army. I am happy that GW will release a painting guide for them this week so I am eager to begin to work with all the tools in hand.

The project is nothing short of all the SE units released. I wanted to playtest the army a little before I commit to the brush or new purchases and I have found it much to my liking.

The currently assembled units are the entire starter part, an unit of five Decimators and an unit of five Judicators. Hopefully they will be basecoated by next week so I can begin to work with the painting as per the official guide. I am yet undecided whether to go with Astral Templars or the Celestial Vindicators, both have a very bold livery and much like the Chaos player that I am, I do like bold colors.

We shall see.

@Baron Klatz the feather is pinned to the front of his chest plate, I have a few champion models with similar feathers in the pipeline. He looked a bit lacking without it, and the idea is a broach or pin would fasten the feather in place. :-)

Hey, I used pliers to snip off all the old bases from the models, I sanded up some new bases and primed them, I then stuck the models on with superglue before filling in any gaps with liquid green stuff. A few of the models got a bit damaged around the feet, which is where tactical grass tufts come into play ;-)

@Bottle: gorgeous Swordsmen you got there,wish I had taken the time I do now on my painting as I did when I painted up my Empire.

I was debating what to do with my Empire army but since it's 99.999% safe now I feel a lot better and may now start adding to it again.



Currently re painting my Zombie Dragon

I did some painting notes here: https://ttgamingdiary.wordpress.com/2016/03/29/fyreslayers/ in which I mention that someone on this forum gave me the idea for the dark skin - sorry, but I could not track down that post and credit you.

Beautiful models as usual Matt, really like the color scheme.

...oh and I hate you. I refuse to believe you are human. Maybe you are an evolved AI preparing to kill us all and replace us with an army of machine gamers? Maybe you are the War on Grey Plastic taken physical form?

On the topic of the Ignore function, my problem has become that I now have so many people on my ignore list from AoS threads that in normal threads, where some of these same people don't behave like asshats (strangely enough), it feels somewhat empty... a bit of a shame really.

I played that actually back in January. In the fav scenario thread I brought that up. The Fiend's Lair, from FS battle tome. I suggest giving it a go. Like a old RPG or video game. The opponent didn't realize how devastating for me it could be since he came in with spells active. Turn 2 my 20 vulkite berzerkers face a horde of skeletons with spears who did 91 attacks. ouch. then immediately 91 more. But since unit was fresh that 4+ ward save helped so only 7 died, even with my crappy rolling. It's a fun scenario and I recommend it. If you have misplaced your a copy I'm sure we can get you a new one.

Really simple colours but the orange hair and crests contrast the dark skin tones beautifully, and the splash of gold here and there add some polish and detail. I've started to really appreciate the Dwarf/Duardin plastic kits a lot more of late having seen the various work in this thread.

No pictures right now, but I'm in the process of building up a Swifthawk Agents force using just Shadow Warriors and a Skycutter.

In preparation for a "Build Your Own Hero" event, I just finished up converting what I'm going to call a "Swifthawk Watcher". The following is in effect: - HERO: 5 wounds / Movement 6" / Armor 4+ / Bravery 8
--- May take 2 weapons / 4 Abilities
------ Only 1 Ability may be selected that causes Wounds/Mortal Wounds
--- Add the Keyword HERO

It's a Shadow Warrior with an owl perched upon his arm, using the following:
Alith Anar's Moonbow and the Nomad Prince Hunting Hawk's Beak

Strike Unseen rule from Shadow Warriors
Eye Thief from the Nomad Prince
Quicksilver Shot from the Sisters of the Watch
Loose Until the Last from the Sisters of the Watch

I'll get pictures tomorrow of the Watcher.

Basically - the same system White Dwarf had for the fire on the Fyreslayers - white base, then all over with Cassandora Yellow. Then work outwards with Fuegan Orange, Carroburg Crimson, and the tips with Nuln Oil (sounds weird, but it works).

Really is a lot quicker than it sounds, and is the simplest/quickest/bestest way I have found to do fire.

I need to get better pictures, but my old lightbox is busted up and I don't have a bulb for the light I usually use--but here's the basics.

I changed the bow overnight, instead cutting up one I had laying around to give him a better more ornate look. Thinking about bashing up some stats and maybe see about having someone make me an actual warscroll with just the statlines that I can print out and laminate to use him as a Swifthawk Agent Hero, since their only other option is a Skywarden on Skycutter.

Thought I would sign up and post what I have been working on. It is a little unconventional but I have been really enjoying converting my models. It all stems from one small line in a description: In the midst of battle across the Mortal Realms, the mightest of Human, Orruk, Aelf and Duardin kind were transported away in a flash of lightning, for a greater cause than defiant suicide against the Chaotic hordes awaited them.

I give you the Stormcast Orcternals

This was near the beginning when a lot of blue tac was being used just to see the effects



My dracoth riders, I have another 4, and 3 varanguard that I plan on converting as I didn't much care for the new poses of the dracoth knights. Also check the dreads




My protectors, the aim as they are essentially monster/daemon hunters is to make them look as badass as possible with big trophies because when have Orcs ever been subtle.


This head is the 40k ork pain boy, my aim is to make it look like the left side of his face is burnt and his eye is missing. I am quite happy with the effect.


Sorry for the huge photos, I have no idea how to make them smaller.
I have a small force but I am happy that I have each and every model with a different head and I hope to make each of them as unique as possible. C and C welcome.

Well, I don't have alot of time so I'll sum up everything above this post in two words:

Unbelievably Epic!!

Now then, onto my stuff. I'll spoiler it so people who like seeing actually well-painted models can skip it. (They're not finished anyway)
Spoiler:


Now then, as I am becoming a Stormcast collector(along with Brets, wanderers and maybe high elves) I want my Stormcast to embody a new Bretonnia as it were.

I'm going to make every Stormcast a unique hero that shows why they were favored by Sigmar.



Yeah, that's shovel knight in the middle. I like making videogame knights as well, you can see a mounted and on-foot Link in the background too.

The leftmost Stormcast is a Paragon of the Darkstorm hammers. Knights who crusaded against chaos into their own hellish realm and were forever blackened by the hell fire.

The middle knight is a Striker of Terra. A small order of knights that bear shovel blades and blue armor in memory of a mythic warrior who dug too deep into his own magical kingdom and feel into the mortal realms where he valiantly fought the forces of darkness. (Might make a Duardin warband to go with him.)

The right knight is my local leader of the hallowed knights that patrol the realms of Life and Beasts. A strong friendship between them and the wanderer Aelves.




That's all I have for right now. Hobby time is a precious commodity.

No colour scheme has been decided yet, I am still in the process of converting them all, little bits of fur, and chain mail, hair etc. But I am really enjoying the whole process. Just trying to give a little character to the stormcast.

I love your bases but I can't say the same about the ghosts themselves... why the brown?

Hmm, they aren't really very brown at all, neither in real life or on my screen. Maybe it's your screen settings?

I see like a dark brownish ghosts. Not bad, something different and gives me inspiration in trying to paint my ghosts a different colour other than the "green" LotR ghosts. Like the bases, and the ghosts are not bad. Just wondering what colour they are suppose to be if not brown then. I think it really goes well with the bases and looks quite good.

Hmm, seems like it might be my camera then. Now that I look at another screen, it does indeed look brown. Here is a wip that I took with my phone a few days ago, this is more true to the actual colors.

A lot of really great stuff in here, now I'm scared to post my Fyreslayer stuff once I get painted because it won't be on par.

Nice projects on the way.
I'd like to start a Sylvaneth project for painting purposes in the first place.

Looks good as well. Hopefully lesson learned. Don't blame people that it's their problem when seeing something they see.

Really cool job on those warriors.

Also, might want to spoiler tag that. Some people's phones are going to explode from how big that pic is.

Easier on the lighting, smaller picture. Tossed it in spoiler, Baron. How does one make smaller pictures? Lol

You can resize images in pretty much every image editing program there is =) Paint, for instance.

WIP Korghos Khul:

Finished his Hound. Much better pics when the whole model is complete but will try to post pics as it goes. Also working on a Bloodreaver and a Wrathmonger. I just scored the whole Starter Box for cheap so will paint those up.

Here's my newly finished Knight-Venator. I wasn't interested at all in the Stormcast until I saw this mini.



Unfortunately something happened that made the image teeny tiny, so you can only get the gist. Now I'm building an entire Celestial Vindicators army. I'll throw up more pics as I can. I also have a Dark Elf Sorceress and a unit of Liberators painted that I haven't photographed yet.

Sorry, I'm not sure if you're talking to me

I wish I had my paints rather than a few pots I picked up in Sweden but they made it to table top ready standard in time. And while I'm miles behind most of these painters...I was not the worst painted at the event

@spyguyyoda - love the purple and the dark gun metal. A really menacing look!

@veterannoob - yeah, I was talking to you :-) haha, perhaps wasn't so clear. Do you have any close ups of the different units in your army? You should post them!

@mongoosematt - lovely stuff!

Bottle: Thanks! I was originally going to paint them as Sons of Mallus, with black armor and Purple shields/shoulder pads. I decided I didn't really want to paint black, so here we are! He's still in testing, though. (This level was only about 10 minutes of work).

I'm thinking of switching the trim on the shoulderpads and shield to gold. Any thoughts on that?

Wow this works really well! You should maybe try it on a couple of Blood Warriors and see how it comes out.
