Oh yea, they're beefy. And apparently amazeballs. My friend and I played a 2000 point match last night and the pair of them solo-killed both of his Warlords from 100 to 0 HP just dead (they did die in the process, but damn do they hit like a ton of bricks)

A collective shot of my completed Legio plus Questoris/Cerastus Banner support. At some point I'll probably add another pair of Warhounds (so I can run 2x Axiom Maniples) and more Cerastus Knights, but otherwise, this is all I really want for the forseeable future.

Thank you so much! It was a lot of fun to paint, although looking back, I think it ends up being a LOT of purple and not quite as heraldric as some of the other legions could be (one of the LGS shop owners is doing Legio Astorum, and it blue and yellow looks phenomenal!)

Decent painting session today; blocking in the colors, shadows and highlights on the robes of some Grimghast Reapers. Only 30 more to go, and then on to detailwork.

Been a couple busy weeks; started the school term and already I'm drowning in projects. I've been trying to plug away on my Nighthaunt a little bit every night.

I've got the blue and orange-cream robes done in 32 of them, and the blue done on the other 8, so I'm close! Very close!

I'm also signed up for an AoS Team Tournament (ETC style) in June, so I picked up the big-OG, Nagash himself to add to my list (along with 10 Dire Wolves and building 40 Chainrasps).




And I've been playing an armored-company Necron list for a little bit, and I'm really like it! So much so I'm tweaking one of the lists I'm bringing for the 40k Gallant GT at Adepticon, and adding a Triarch Stalker.

I like spiders, so much so that I was going to paint up a bunch for fun. This is even cooler though as giant alien robot spiders is even scarier than regular spiders.

Been a few since my last update. Been super-slammed with school the past few weeks because I front-loaded my term. Also meant I had 3 case-study deliverables each week. Thankfully that's all behind me now, and I can get back to the grind!

I'm so close to finishing these guys, I can feel it! Probably another week or so's worth of work on my 40 Reapers:



I've rejigged my list for doubles, and will be bringing the Legion of Sacrament, instead of Nighthaunt. So after these I've got 10 dogs, 2 Necros, and a VLord and I'm gucci. If I have time after all is done, I want to try and get 20 Chainrasps done to bring instead of 10 Reapers, but I doubt I'll have time for that.

And I built up these Scarabs since I need another unit of 3 for the 40k Gallant:



The grind is so real it hurts!

I love your color choices. Usually only see bright colors on the ghostly parts of the.....ghosts , not on the clothing. Well done.

Swarm of reapers is getting there, way to keep at that monster batch

EDIT: Did you ever mention how you make your Necron bases? Is that ... cork? Like really thin or maybe crumbled up? Maybe a sandy paste?

FINALLY hitting some actual progress (I say actual even though I've been making incremental steps over the past two months, I've only just started completing models, so it feels like nothing's been happening since January).

40 Reapers are finally done! I want to find some tufts that will work on their bases to add little spots of color, but the paintwork on these are finally done.



You like dags? I also knocked out my 10 Dire Wolves pretty easily in a week.



And speaking on the timeliness of Wizards, I've started work on these Necromancers, color coded so I can differentiate them on the tabletop.

Cheers! Yea I was going for a deliberately bright and colorful (albiet still pastel) scheme that was different from basically every Nighthaunt army I'd seen before. I originally had a much more involved/different vision for the army, but ended up not executing it because of time crunch, which is a shame, but c'est la vie. It was super ambitious for an army and I don't think I'd have pulled it off in any realistic timeframe.

I glue 1/4 cork to the bases with super glue, and once it's dry, I take clippers to it to crumble it and make it look like rock structures.
Then I hit it with patches of Golden Crackle Paste, and let dry overnight.
Once that dries, I hit up the base (leaving some of the cracked areas and cork uncovered) with Golden Coarse Pumice Gel.

Damn! No wonder they look so much better than just cork basing. Thanks for the breakdown, I'll see about including some of that process in the Kings of War army I'm working on.

Great progress on the Undead

Yeah, I like dags. I like caravans more.

Fairly stunning stuff. The wizards especially have a great look.

Finished my 2 Necromancer/Wizards and my Vampire Lord last night:



Had a lot of fun with these models and they were relatively simple to paint. A nice way to finish off this portion of the army.

I'm on to finish my Radigundus bust (probably by tomorrow evening), before I move on to my Triarch Stalker.

Does the coach count as a Caravan? I will paint the pair of them eventually...

It's a converted Veteran Hemlocke model from Guild Ball, with wings from a Vampire Bat Familiar. The base + snake is also from Guild Ball; it's the holiday special Coin.

Had a pretty productive weekend, and helped my local gaming store celebrating their 4th birthday.

I blocked in the highlights and shadows for my Triarch Stalker. Going to smooth it out tomorrow night, and start working in battle damage and edging.



I based the 40 Chainrasps that are the next to be painted for my Legion of Nagash.



I built my Shadespire crew: Mollog plus friends.



And I picked up the first model for my slow-grow Infinity Combined Army: the Avatar.

That's a lot of spooky ghosts. Interested to see the Shadespire stuff done up.
