The thin attachment points are definitely a problem, and she's on a bit of a spring. I broke off, as you can see in my WIP images, the vine that is "inside" her body, and I HIGHLY recommend anyone painting this model to paint it in sub-assemblies. Do the handmaidens separately. Do each layer of vines-veil-hair-body separately. Ultimately my style of painting minimized the issue with the wobble. I paint and finish each "section" before moving on to the next, which allows me to handle the miniature itself rather than hold the base. If you do all the base coats then all the layers then all the washes or in whichever order, then yeah it'd be a pain to do like that.

I'm glad that my work can inspire, I think your (and your boy's, his Mourngul work was very cool!) work is inspiring myself so your words mean a lot!

Viterbi wrote:Great work so far on Olynder, gotta echo the others, the hourglass is amazing. And I never realized before, how she lifts her dress, that doesn't even touches the ground. A proper lady all around


Yes she's quite proper, isn't she! Very elegant and ceremonial!

Bloodal wear.

Thanks so much! I noticed that there appears to be a bit of "reflection" in it. It's honestly a fumbled brush-stroke that just happens to look like a reflection of the handmaiden's, well, hand. Fortune favoured me with this mini!

And she's done too!

"Even spoken in a whisper, it crept into the ears of everyone in the observatory. 'The crypt-court of Lady Olynder.'" - excerpt from Lady of Sorrows by C L Werner.

At a human's eye-level, she does not even deign to look down upon the mortals, gliding eerily above the wall of fog. Her handmaiden's have no such compunctions; beware their freezing touch!


Behind her, her tattered veil of bloody flesh floats suspended in the windless air. Her raven hair is flung behind her, underneath it, caught in a wind that no other feels.


Her handmaidens carry the arcane Grave-sand Hourglass; the sands of the lives of bold heroes silently fall away before her.
Spoiler:


Tears of blood well through the flesh-veil that covers her mysterious face. None who have seen whence the tears flow and lived, and her ghostly entourage will not tell her secrets.
Spoiler:


She leads the Nighthaunts, an unending nation of spirits, against any who would oppose Nagash.

Yeah, the vines on some of those Nighthaunt minis are super brittle, I broke the one on the Underworld's warband leader without even trying. Love Lady Olynder, such a unique take on her. From black at the bottom of the dress to pure extreme white highlights is a really brave colour choice and you did really well with it.

Is the primer on the way? Some varieties of spray can primer are proving very elusive.

Thanks ListenToMe! Yeah the Underworlds Briar Queen is also terrifying because the vines *stretch out*. Just nerve-wracking.

Unfortunately it's not, I intended to go get one from in-store, but when I went last week to check if the store was open, I discovered a) it was, but b) it closed super early. And now we're on a quote-unquote "lockdown" in Ontario. I mean, technically I can still go into a store to buy spray paint, the only restriction is 25% capacity, so *insert politics here*, but I intend to treat it as if it's something a bit closer to the actual lockdown it should be.

I have 10 Necron Warriors who are going to jump to the front of the queue once I get the primer, and I also have 10 Necron Warriors in the background there that I'm cutting off old-style guns and replacing them with Gauss Reapers. I haven't figured out quite HOW I'm doing that yet, but that's what's happening.

In the meantime, I did the wood and stone on the second batch of Chainrasps



If I want to expand this army, I'm gonna need another 10 Chainrasps at least, and some other troop choices. Though I do love painting Chainrasps.

Something to consider for primer, if you can get them, is Kobra sprays. They're graffiti acrylic sprays, and give excellent coverage, and are much less expensive than a lot of hobby paint. I get mine through Amazon to

Lol yeah I need to get some extra shelves so I can spread out my minis a bit! I have an overflow shelf rn too for minis that I don't mind getting dusty b/c I have to clean them before priming or stripping anways.

I was gonna go for the Krylon satin finish, I heard that the satin finish works with contrast paints.

Finished the metallics! Just purple, then blood then basing.

Thanks for your always kind words, Captain Brown and Not Online!!!

I finished off the last of the Chainrasps. Gonna have to find myself some more Nighthaunt Battleline if I want this army to be playable! Photos aren't that great, I had REALY trouble getting not blurry pics with these guys.

Eye-level view - actually quite scary viewed like this!
Spoiler:


A more usual view to see in a game.

An even MORE usual view for ME to see in a game - the unit's backside!

And lastly, the Court so far. Only Nighthaunt I have left are the various Characters, and the weird half-unit of scythe ghosts.

Thanks Sigur! That was 100% my intention. The traditional "ghostly" nighthaunt are effective and WAY easier to paint, but I'm a fan of painting intricate details. Sometimes too much, I need to cut down on my palette on some other projects!

Speaking of cutting down on palette, I basically painted this guy in a single day.

introducing Deputy Taylor, a 10th Anniversary exclusive for Last Night on Earth. He starts the game with a shotgun, and is extra good at searching for new items. I painted him entirely monotone browns-and-khakis, which honestly was a lot of fun to come up with different ways to shade different parts.




Edit: I also updated the first post to have an index to all "completed" minis!
