INTRODUCTION
With the sudden rise of Age Of Sigmar in my community I've been eager to start work on an army, but I wasn't really sure where to start. Then it all changed when I saw a Stormcast Eternal painted with stone armour! Funny story I really don't like the concept of the Sigmar Startes but make them animated stone statues and suddenly it's awesome!

THE FIRST STONECAST
I've been experimenting with techniques since the start of this month and this guy is the results of my labour so far...



The moss was created mixing fine turf with matt varnish, I think I may have been a bit heavy handed?
Things I've changed with the next lot of models was to drybrush some areas with a bit of green on the first brown basecoat and use a mix of 50/50 brown and green for the wash.

So what do you think to my completed Stonecast Eternal?

Ooh nice. Moss is looking, certainly not too heavy-handed. In fact, he could use a bit more IMO.

A Squeaky Waaagh!!

Looks very promising! I want to see more!

I'm in the same boat as you. A cool background and or paint scheme can make or brake an army.
Golden Sigmar Poser boys? Nah, let's paint them irty, weary and bloody?
Default red Khorne guys? Nope. Saw them in World Eaters colour somewhere, now this is where I'm going with them.

Ooh a new Proiteus blog, consider me insta-subbed!

That looks like a very labour intensive paint scheme you've got going but it certainly looks incredible. The moss looks just right to me.

What are your plans for future models? I'd love to see a squad of battle damaged Sigmarines with limbs that have crumbled off with age.

Some veterans made of marble would be great as well. I think Nerdfest had a good tutorial on how to paint good marble but I can't seem to find it atm...

I'm gonna take full credit for that guy missing an arm since I suggested it minutes before you posted the picture

I like the cool blue colour you are using to liven your palette up, it makes them look like they are possessed by some powerful magic.

Excellent scheme, and idea that is brilliantly executed. The cracks on the shield are stunning. A great concept as well, very Harryhausen. Cannot wait to see more.

Yep, very novel take that's very well realised. Generally, the Stormcast models inspire nothing but disinterest in me, bu these are excellent.

Well the first Stonecast Eternal Liberator Squad is complete, decided to go with some colourful Autumn themed bases to contrast the dark dull tones of the statues.
Plan to add some leaves later on using a new punch tool I ordered, anyway let us know what you think?

Next up Stonecast Judicators!

As with a lot of people, I'm really not taken by Sigmarines - but that animated statue look is fantastic.

Looking forwards to seeing more.

Man those are cool!

Stroke of genius too. I couldn't care less about Stormcasts normally, but you're absolutely right that making them statues animated by souls somehow makes them feel right

The bases contrast nicely, and the moss is simply perfect.

Awesome concept. You've out done yourself with achieving a stone style.

Currently experimenting with my leaf punch for extra base details. The texture was achieved using water paint and salt.
What do you think?

Really really cool.

I like this autumn theme! I recently purchased a leaf punch too for adding them to my Autumn City Skeletons.

What did you use for the dead wood?

Close ups of the Prime and the broken Liberator. It make take over an hour of constant drybrushing on each model but the end result is worth it!

Don't forget to rate the images in my gallery please.
