I tested colour schemes for my Basilean and Abyssal warbands. Here is with what I will go.

Thanks! Pretty classic, but, hey, they're demons from hell and I like Mantic's classic take on fantasy.

My KoM "Averland Avengers" lost to the Orc Life in the Portal scenario. The dungeon terrain isfrom Battle Systems. I painted most of the KoM minis back in 2013 when I learned of KoW so it eas great to get to use them.

I've been slowly (very slowly) working my way through the stuff i picked up in the Vanguard KS. Here are all of my Northern Alliance models to date:

Now showing Abyssals for Vanguard!




Painting total as of 8/17/2019: 99 plus a wooden bridge and gnoll encampment and 36 pieces of Mantic scatter terrain and three fly holes and three farm buildings and a fire pit.

Need moar snow trolls!!!

lol.

Those look fantastic. Nice work.

(I sure do wish we had a little more variety for some of the big guys. One of those trolls looks awesome, but a rank of them wouldn't look so awesome. I love the new Basilean Ogre. I don't love how similar looking they all are)

Also, WHAT BE UP WITH THE ROUND BASES?!?!?!

I have been doing everything on round bases recently so as to have a system-agnostic collection. If/when I ever get around to playing Vanguard, I'll find a way to mark the rear facing and sort of ignore base sizes.

My KOW Undead so far. I'm using GW ghosts and werewolves from the TTCombat halfling kickstarter. The heroes are GW too, except the "classic" vampire. I think he is from Heresy. Mantic skeletons, zombies and ghouls will follow. My other VC stuff from WHFB will be repurposed too.

Nice packed ghost unit, and those are some great werewolf sculpts! Gangly GW vampire chick has always been a miss for me - especially compared to the Isabella Von Carstein model that more or less replaced her - but you've polished that sculpt admirably all the same

Thanks a lot! The female vampire isn't my favourite either. Since I got even more vampires lying around, she won't see much playtime.

If you scroll through these pages you really want to play more KOW and Vanguard. There's some incredibly good stuff here! A lot more creative and fun to look at, than most of what I've seen for GW systems. So, keep it coming!

Those are some nice undead models, CptKeno. I particularly like the ghosts.

Here are some more Vanguard models:


There are more images in my P&M blog. Feel free to take a look.

There's a lot of good stuff here. Great to look at, thanks all!

To return the favour: Last week I did a photoshoot of my for-now-completed undead army.
Not all of it is painted as well as the stuff here, the completed army is pretty epic.

Pointwise, it adds up to over 8,500 points without magical items and upgrades.
Closeups of the army can be found on my blog:

And If I'm going there: the overview-in-progress of all my armies:

Freakin' great! Now I've got to figure out how to photograph my collection of undead... The largest roadblock is basically inertia... It's a lot of work to unpack, set up and shoot!

I play...

Sigh.

Those undead are an impressive amount of work! I like the scorpions especially

My club was gifted a pile of goodies from Mantic, and I opted for the Forces of Nature (a far cry from undead...! But I was playing Elves in our campaign, so that's a more natural progression).


Thanks Mantic!

None painted yet, but I'm blogging the results here:

Since the Vanguard Kickstarter Blaine sat unassembled on my shelves... but this week I will need him for my next campaign game...
Brown primer (Army Painter Leather Brown Spray), one or max 2 layers of paint and then different washes for different regions.

Thanks! It's a great joy to see support like this.

anyhows, I don't know if you found the scorpions' WIP Photos. If not: here's them.

I hadn't seen those, i don't think, but they're quite neat.

I've been looking into doing something with turtles for my trident realm/nature armies, and that gives me some good ideas!

Two can play the Blaine Game!

The photo doesn't show it off well (it never does when I'm behind it...), but I used Scale 75 Black Metal for his armor. It looks very cool, I love that color!

Nice work on that Blaine. The armor looks really good-- I'll have to get some of that black metal.
