The ogres look good even if they don’t play so well. That Mordheim table is amazing, is it yours or a store?

He is clanless, my friend bought the rest of the orcs painted in a kind of desert camo scheme and sometimes switches the clan kultur. I'm trying to match his existing models a bit, but maybe forgo the camo.

Thanks Captain Brown! With one mini not painted from his orks it was a no-brainer to offer it, even if it took some month until he gave in

Thanks gobert! Luckily, I started to paint them in anticipation for their WarCry rules, so not really sad, they don't work well in Mordheim. But have a new warband lined up, just waiting for the minis to arrive.
The table belongs to the friend I'm painting the orc for. He built it 2 years ago and it is marvelous to play on it.

Painted a little yesterday, blocked more in on the orc and tried my hand at checks. I painted the black with contrast to have a more sloppy look, because I don't figure orcs as exact creatures. And the beastman for the painting comp got the first hazard stripes and looking at them, I have to redo them I used pencil as a marker, but that was not precise enough.

Spiffy markings for everyone. After you tighten them up, the stripes on the sword are going to be awesome. The beastman is turning out great. Love that armor color.

Thanks youwashock, but I caved and painted his sword metal again At one point in the future he may get new stripes, but seeing as I want to finish the orc for the weekend and some nighthaunt a scount-as for an undead Mordheim warband I opted for done instead of a new attempt. And happy that you like the armor color. It's good I have settled on some prime colors for my Imperials, it makes painting that much easier and ties everything together.

But because I didn't do the hazard stripes on the sword, I made sure that my friend's orc got some. The mini is at 80% now, next up is edge highlights, rust and blood on the axe and a little cleanup. And because I imagine he is running towards the foe gun blazing on auto fire I tried the heat effect on his gun.

Edit: On second thought I may try the method I used for the orc hazard stripes on the sword, that may be a quick way.

Thanks guys, your comments mean a lot!

And I'm calling the orc done, he gets back to his owner tomorrow evening, we're playing Mordheim at his home. Probably some time until I can shoot the orc from the table with my sisters or marines

The only thing that made me cringe was doing the base like on the other model I had as a reference and that he bought painted. I tried to match that tone and style as close as possible, because I took liberties with the other colors.

And I'm painting up four models for the Mordheim game tomorrow, not sure, if I will make it because it's my turn this evening getting the kids into bed and then my sisters visit for dinner. Keldrek will be the vampire lord, the other ghost a dreg, sorcerer will be used as necromancer and the banshee as a ghoul.

That Ork looks great, really well done. The base does not look bad at all either.

Good start on the Ghoulies as well, hope you can get them done in time for your game.

Thanks youwashock and seeing as my Mordheim minis are always quick and dirty, that's also mostly the finished look Excited for the game tonight, hope luck really is on my side.

Thanks ListenToMeWarriors! And I did it, finished them half an hour ago. The Necromancer color scheme was inspired by Gwyn's blog and his skin and blood cowls for the chainrasps. I thought that a skin armor with pooled blood might be "nice" for a post-mortem communicator

Those pools of blood look fantastic! I also like the little bit of blood around the horns, makes it look like they quite violently burst out of his head!

Thanks Yorkright, he was pretty pleased with the mini and we'll play a round of kill team next weekend, so I can shoot or hack that model off the table

Ghosts did reasonably well. Played two games and won against Beastmen Raiders, but my Necromancer now has to sit out a game, if I roll a 1. Second game was harsh, failed to wound the ork friend's Reiklanders and their longswords did really hurt. Nearly lost my vampire lord (Keldrek), first rolled multiple injuries, but had only to roll once on the injury chart again. But of course first dice is a one, luckily second one is a six, so I have to roll again and he "lives". That was a close one, but all said all matches seemed very rounded, we were three players and everyone played two matches, winning one and losing one.

Thanks, your pics of your nighthaunt were a really good inspiration! I would love to say, that the effect on the horns was planned, but I actually had done them in blood too, but it looked weird. Put black contrast over it and suddenly it worked

And a shot from the first game, one round later, the quasi vampire lord could just leave the boat, leaving a dead bestigor and dead warhound behind.

The necromancer and ghosts look cool. I wouldn't have thought to make armor the color of flesh nd pooled blood like that, but it looks very cool. I also like the pic from the gme, thanks for sharing it.

Thanks Syro_! Was really fun getting that flesh and blood look, because it was so simple and didn't need much effort, that's how I like painting best

And seeing that my beastman tempestor prime (pic below, had only posted him in the painting comp thread) needs some buddies, I'm trying to paint up those 5 scions this week, that I built sometime last year. Love the look of a squad of converts who were persuaded, that the emperor should be their only god

YES! Abhumans!

While I'd prefer they were a little more... "independent" from the Imperium always love to see them get attention.

Question is; if kroot use a majority of human(-ish) DNA, are they still kroot or do they become abhumans?

The Tempestor Prime(al) looks great. I really like the red, almost burgundy armour plating. It is odd how I am reticent to pay Forge World prices when a lot of the time the prices of single figures is not that different from clam pack plastic characters.

The Beastmen heads look great on the Scion's, I am less sold on the Kroot heads but that may just be the angle of the photo.

Interesting question about the Kroot. I actually started building those guys to have them run around with a more lax inquisitor and maybe he would sell them as abhuman warriors if someone asks And at least ruleswise I'm quite happy they are with the Imperium, so I can put them in withput problems. Have an abhuman detachment planned with some Bullgryns, the ratling snipers, Rein & Raus from Blackstone Fortress and they will be minded by the Primaris psyker and a preacher with chainsword (which I didn't plan to buy, I wanted the missionary with chainsword. But in german they are the Prediger and the Priester with chainsword so I only glanced at the description, no image was included and ordered the wrong mini But it's still a nice one, so he gets painted up and is also an Elite slot unlike the Missionary who is HQ.

Thanks ListenToMeWarriors and loving the Primal joke What kills it for me most of the time is the shipping to Germany, because I often want just one mini or one transfer sheet and not spend 99 GBP to have free shipping.

Other angles may be even less favorably for the Kroot I quite like them, but they were option B, because I wasn't able to get enough beastmen heads from my usual bitz dealer.

Thanks Yorkright!

And did some work yesterday and a lot of the colors are blocked in. Could kick myself, that I assembled them completely, when I build them last spring, because there are lots of places, that are hard to reach. And after that I would love to kick GW, because even if you can reach stuff, they are very busy models regarding straps and suchlike. But they should be ready for play on the weekend, blocking, cleanup and shading should be done by tomorrow and than only some edge highlighting to go.

The abhumans are looking good to me, I always used to paint then assemble, but of late have been happy to assemble first. I find it easier to get the pose I want without worrying about screwing up my paint job with glue/damage. I’ve also taken the view that unless I enter an in person painting competition (highly unlikely) no one is ever going to see the hidden bits I missed painting! It all depends on what your happy with I suppose

I agree with gobert. If you're not painting for competition try not to sweat the small stuff. Odds are, if it's difficult to get to you won't see it anyway and can get away with black or basic paint on it. Have your own standards, though. This is your hobby after all.

Great work on the beasties.

The Beastman heads on the scions remind me of the original abhuman contingents of the Imperial Guard.
