Nice pair of bases there Gwyn. Those banshees are the highlight of the page though, they look great. The misty bases have worked really well

Thank you! Next project (while I wait for more primer) should build on what I've learned from the banshees.

Please do! It's a really easy way to add interest, though it is nerve wracking once you've put down the PVA glue and are trying to tease the strands of cotton into place!

And now I get to do it again on a high stakes figure!

I started Lady Olynder years ago, and now it's time to do her properly! This is the undercoat tonal transition of the ghost bodies and the contrast layer of her veil put down. Note that her handmaiden's don't have the second "layer" that almost all Nighthaunts have, so no flesh for them! There was also a bit too much pooling near the ends of the tattered veil, but I intend to drybrush a much paler colour over the veil, so I'll try lightening those up. Maybe even a light-coloured thin wash.

All the other colours are remnants of my first base coats I put on them ages ago.

More solid work Gwyn, that base for your overlord looks very cool. Keen to see Olynder in your scheme, I think it'll be something special.

She's one of my favourite GW models, I've been looking forward to doing her for ages!

Fantastic! An especially dense layer will work great for the Craven King, as he really floats high above the base!

Thanks gobert! Actually using the base might wait a good while.

Thanks Tyranid Horde! I think Olynder is gonna be quite the centerpiece, here's hoping!

I got the purple on her, and I dry-brushed the flesh veil. Those being the two most important steps, I think this is a promising result! I think I'm going to need to do more highlight on the white, it's still coming out really flat, the Apothecary White Contrast isn't quite enough on it's own, especially around the filigree.

Looking good Gwyn, if you want some definition around the filigree, would the purple you used for the cloak be a good recess wash?

That's an interesting idea. It'd have to be watered down I think. That or make a really light gray wash.

While pondering that, I re-did the bone arms and faces.

Thanks guys! Lots of small updates today. Did base coat and washes on the bronze and gold (difference is the gold has a red wash as well as a brown wash, and will get different highlights), the wood on the casket, the glass of the hourglass, and a white highlight on the white (which fixed the details too, though my brush was a little less accurate than I could have hoped).

Thanks everyone! I'm happy with the hourglass, I think it makes a fine detail on the mini.

Did a little bit more work. Highlights on the bone, and finished off the bronze and the gold! Also put a blue wash on the hourglass glass, because the white on the broken bottom bulb was a bit too bright. Looking at it close up, I need to do a paler Skull White on the teeth.

Thongs gobert and Robert! I'm really happy with the hourglass. Funnily enough I didn't really spend that much time at it, I basically just threw paint at it instinctually. Wait, does that mean that I might actually be getting to understand how to paint light and glass now? No let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Super exciting update today, because I got BLOOD EFFECTS!





I'm very happy with how this came out, especially with the "tears" from Olynder herself!

Olynder is coming on very nicely indeed. As others have said, really good job on that hourglass. I've heard this model can be a pain to paint - very wobbly due to few and thin attachment points. How have you found it?

That praise for the hourglass keeps echoing, as I'll add to the chorus! Blood effects look awesome too, the glossy shine adds a really nice visual interest.
