Here are a few more of the Shadespire warbands I have painted up. These are great little projects as I can usually get a warband done in a couple days.





Will post some more in a few days as well as the latest BB team I have been working on!

Another of my painted warbands. Not the best pics. Still trying to figure out lighting in my new place.

Another warband I had painted up and won a glass trophy with. This is actually the warband I won my first tournament with. The Thorns are probably my favorite warband to play with.

So I, like many others, have bought into the contrast paint craze. Me and a buddy went to the FLGS yesterday and bought 9 or 10 pots each and just shared paints for the day so we had a lot of the colors. These models are just test models so need a few touch ups but here is what I came away with after a couple hours of messing around. Please excuse some of the gak spots / missed areas.Need to go back and touch up but I was just messing around yesterday and seeing what I could do.

First up the obligatory pox walker. This is over a krylon white primer



Next an imperial fist. This is over wraith bone



A black templar over lead belcher



I have a few more I will post later. Overall I am pretty impressed with the contrast paints. While I think I can produce better results using regular paints, the time they save is pretty amazing. I think they will be great for laying down base coaats and for models you want to paint in really bright colors. I don't think they will work as well for a more grimdark style.

Been messing around with these contrast paints more. The more I use them the more I like them. Especially how much faster I can paint with them. I wont use them all the time, but when I need to knock out something quick for a game these will be my go to.

Here is a gatorman from PP's Hordes



and here are some ur-ghuls from BSF. These guys took maybe 5 minutes if you don't count drying time and look board ready to me



Next up is a converted Lizardman team for Blood Bowl using the contrast paints. Should have some progress from that in the next few days.

As promised, here is what I have done of my Blood Bowl lizardman team. I am going to a tournament in Va Beach called the ACCC in about a month and I am considering playing with them. Have the Saurus coming in the mail as I type this. I painted 5 of the skinks last night. Contrast is super fast and looks fine from 3 ft away. I said it earlier, I am capable of painting better using traditional methods, but there is something satisfying about being able to bang out passable models so quickly.

Been having a lot of fun with these paints. Just knocking out random models I have lying around.

This guy is probably my favorite so far.





and a tyrranid just because



One thing I don't like about these paints is I seem to notice itty bitty spots I missed in the picture that are barely evident when I go back and look for them on the model. Saw 3 or 4 on the Gellarpox just now. Gonna go touch him up now. That being said, that took me 30-40 minutes and that's not bad for that sized model.

So here is a wizard I painted up for Frostgrave / ROSD. Simple model, simple paint scheme. I like how he turned out.

The wizard looks nice, I think he's my favorite contrast model from you. The face especially looks good.

Thanks, guys! The face of the wizard did come out really well. The contrast paints do skin nicely. I think its one of their strengths.

Next I painted up a pink horror. Heard demons were getting Kill Team rules next week so I figured why not.

Your work with the contrast is really showing what it can do. I need to get some of the skin tone ones soon.

The skin tones are some of the best of the paints IMO. Which is a nice transition to my next post! Been reading a lot about warcry, and the Godsworn Hunt look a lot like the Beast guys from the starter set of Warcry, so I grabbed one and got to painting. This guy was already primed with a krylon white ultra flat primer, so isn't using the "official" primers but it looks good to me!



and another shot just sitting on my desk right after I finished him, so he is still wet here,



Until next time, folks!!

Thanks, Theo! The skin is just straight fireslayer flesh. The sword is just PP's pig iron with very thin watered down templar black, used almost like a wash.

Thanks, Captain Brown!!

So I painted up another of The Godsworn Hunt. Stuck with the same scheme, as I think I am going to use them with the Untamed Beasts that come in the Warcry starter box. I don't know if they can have bows or not but its still fun to paint either way. And if I decide to play the GSH in Underworlds then they will be painted! Birds... meet stone!





I think I will just finish off this warband over the next week or so. I am also working on a Skaven BB team by Willy miniatures. I have a BB tourney in Newport News next weekend and am trying to get them ready for that. I may show them off but TBH they are not coming out well. The minis are beautiful but small and my color scheme is dark and is not bringing out the details. Will show them when more are ready... I only have 4 of 12 done so I will be busy with them next week. This week Im getting a game of KT tomorrow night and Necromunda Saturday. Good hobby week!

So I said I was going to post some of my Skaven BB team. Again, not too happy with these, but this is how they came out. I guess you learn more from your failures etc....

Now for a little bit of a changeup. Im going to NOVA for the first time this year and will be taking place in the Necromunda narrative event they are having. This is for N17 which I have less experience with than the original, but I figure it will still be fun. Got my first 4 guys painted up. Going to paint an Ambot and a couple hangers on to go with them. I don't know how the event works yet, but I figure I will just paint up a bunch of options and between everything I will be able to make a legal list. Also open to gang names if anyone has anything clever.

Now back with more contrasty goodness. The 3rd member of the Godsworn Hunt. With the new Bar list for Underworlds released today, I have been thinking about taking these guys to the Grandclash at NOVA. It will be either them, Mollogs Mob, or the Thorns, as those are the warbands I feel the most comfortable with.

Almost picked these guys up today. Great looking work with the contrast, that blue is fantastic.

I’m down to just needing Godsworn, Mollog, and the Profiteers. Of course Dreadfane, Beastgrave and all of third season are right around the corner .

If you care about the cards Mollog and The Hunt should come first of the three IMO. If you just want cool models, well... IMO the order stays the same!

So I knocked out 2 more members of the GSH. I tried some new stuff with these and am not a fan. Oh well, its why we are testing. Below the are two plaguebearers for a Daemon KT. Figured I had the white dwarf with the rules and the models so why not. They are going along with my horror up above. The plaguebearers are about 60% contrast. I put some browns splotched around the skin on the primers to give them some depth, then went over the whole thing with plaguebearer flesh. The blood angel red for the red bits, then a regular yellow paint for the pustules. Then just washed the whole thing down with agrax. Works well enough for me.

Thanks Squall, the Godsworn hunt will be the next band I buy, mollog and the profiteers are the lowest on my list. The cards might tilt Mollog higher, plus bat-squig.

New guys are looking good, I love the blue hair plumes.

squall018,

The colouring on your Necromunda gang reminds me of the original Dune movie and the younger navigators. They turned out particularly well.

Thanks, CB! I got a few more painted over the weekend and will post them later. I like how they came out as well.

So I finished up the Godsworn Hunt. Really pleased with how they turned out. These will hopefully be able to be used in Warcry as well.



Also here is a picture of my Grey Knight Kill Team. This is the main Kill Team I play with and while Grey Knights aren't great in KT, but I do enjoy participating the psychic phase.

So I have been meaning to post these guys for awhile now. This is my Orc warband for Underworlds. Bottom blurry picture is from where I won some glass with them at a local tourney a couple month back. Went with a copper / bronze armor just to try something different.

So I spent last night painting up the Iron Golems from the Warcry starter. Ive kind of gone all in on this game so this will be what Im working on for the forseeable future so if you are interested at all stay tuned!

My phone camera isn't great so I took pics with and without flash. First few are without and the last ones are with flash which focuses better but washed out some of the color. Anyways, enough rambling.















Been building terrain and the untamed beasts this morning., Going to run to Hobby Lobby in awhile to get spray cans to paint the terrain easier. This box has an INSANE amount of plastic. Its almost overwhelming.

Great looking guys, I like your color choices on them, possibly even more so then the studio colors. I’ve seen the models first hand in the shop and I like these iron golems A LOT, but I can only afford one specialist game and I’m already deep into Warhammer Underworlds .

What a great Segway into my next post! You can use a lot of the Underworlds warbands to make Warcry warbands. The Thorns make up half of the below Nighhaunt warband. Going to bring these guys to the demo day at my FLGS next Saturday in case anyone wants to play but hasn't bought in yet. Easier to rope people in with painted models!!



The Sepulchral Guard pretty much form a warband if you add a Necromancer. The Farstriders make up the core of a Stormcast warband. Just get a gryph hound or two and you are good to go! All of the gitz are useable. That's kind of what drew me in, as those underworlds models can get double duty in Warcry.
