The FLGS has this nice collection of sci-fi western card terrain, but it wasn't quite enough to fill the table so I had to put a more traditional Warhammer Gothic ruin on too!

Painted up Vargard Obyron aka Vargard Oddaros. This is him almost completed (i'll get better light for the completed photo). Just had to do basing, a last edge highlight on his warscythe, and then gonna try varnish and maybe a waterslide transfer.

Spoiler:

Like many of the Sothis Dynasty, Vargard Oddaros is stuck reliving the same period over and over again.

Spoiler:

For Vargard Oddaros, that period is a day that saw a close assassination attempt on the Nemesor A'ahotka, pictured here with him

Spoiler:

Ever since then, Oddaros has stayed by A'ahotka's side, taking his orders, and leading his most trusted Lychguard against A'ahotka's enemies, certain that each one is part of the ongoing assassination attempt.

While waiting for stuff to dry, I also did a test-paint on one of my Namarti Thralls. I wanted my Namartis to have no silver, steel, or iron. Every metal would be in a shade of bronze for weapons, copper for lower ornamentation or practical items, or gold for fanciness. This is a test of a bronze weapon. I'm pretty happy about it, but wondering whether it could use a touch of verdigris. I wouldn't put verdigris on the Akhelian weapons though, it'd only be the Namarti lower classes.

Yeah, that's a nice bronze color. I like the idea of using all the colors but silver and steelish. A bit of verdigris would be good i think but not so much that it become the dominant color.

Perhaps just a little in the details? I don't want to lose the warmth of the metal, but differentiating Namarti from the high classes is a good idea. I'll experiment later.

Still working on Obyron. He's taking a varnish right now, so I picked a random model to paint while the varnish dried.

Spoiler:


Just base coat so far, and still needs some touch-ups on the shoulder and the belt (forgot which bump was buckle and which was belt, accidentally bronzed the belt!). Going for a classic Order of Our Martyred Lady look, though I might end up re-doing her as Sacred Rose. My current plan is to get more a blue tint to her black armour. If that doesn't turn out though I think it's strip-and-Sacred-Rose time.

Gwyn chan 'r Gwyll,

I painted Amalia Novena for the Monthly Painting Challenge as well and found her very difficult to paint as the model was so thin and small. Good work on a basecoat.

Cheers,

CB

Alright, here's Obyron in all his glory! I initially left him gloss varnish (he is a metallic creature after all). Do you guys think I should keep gloss, or matte him back down?

Next on the list, is a pile more warriors. These ones are gonna get similar OSL effects, so I'm really amping up the glow on their weapons.

Christmas gifts involved an actual lightbox! Here's a test shot with some old minis, not my paint-jobs. These ones my mother got me when I was just a kid, she commissioned them from a friend of hers. Alas both of these minis are now Legends only. At least the bolt thrower can be proxied as a Stormcast ballista ally for my Idoneth. Unfortunately no such useful proxy I know of for the sorceress.

Spoiler:


I think I need to place the miniatures a little further back so that the front illuminates a bit more, because the shutter speed is so high from the bright background, they look much darker than they are.

Working through this batch of warriors! Experimenting with using the brightest silver on the arms and legs as an edge highlight which I think will work better with OSL from the gun. I think it'll look very strong at tabletop level!

Nice work on the lighting, looks really good. I wonder if you need to add some glow to the chins of the models with the guns near their faces, same with some of the knees near the pipes to add to the effect even more
   
Made in ca

Good call on the adjustments to the OSL. I'll add a little bit on the chins, legs, and on review the right arms before sealing them.

I grabbed a handful of Nighthaunt models from a friend, and I had an idea for them that I wanted to trial on Olynder; bloody eyesockets. Ghosts wrapped in torn flesh bleeding from their eyes is pretty good horror if I can pull it off.

I think your suggestions really worked Maharg! A little bit OSL near the face, knees, and arms, then putting on the regiment shoulder-mark waterslide transfers.

Next: A woodlands base to quickly whip together as a quick break, then the first batch of 10 Chainrasps! Corroded bronze, skeletal bodies, bloody eyes and flayed skin, come floating through the mist. This should be fun!

Those bits of glowing armor do look good. And the chainrasps sound like they'll be nice and creepy.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

The log came out mixed; the fallen log looks amazing, but the upright log in comparison looks kinda... bland and bare. Partially I blame the sculpt; the upright log is pretty much detailless. But at the same time, I should be able to add the bark flecks myself. I may return later and fix that.

First test for the Nighthaunt scheme! This is just base coats of everything: contrast for the bone and flesh-shawl, a light wash for the ghost-y-bits, bronze for the metal will all be corroded. Considering replacing my usual wood with the contrast wood it looks really good. Bleeding eye sockets. I think I'm happy, I want to experiment with the corroded bronze before I do the first set of ten but this is very promising.

Good start on the ghosts, they have a nice dirty, old look to them. Eye sockets turned out well too

I echo Maharg, a nice base for the Nighthaunts.

It's satisfyingly different from most nighthaunt schemes I think.

Got my hands on some Nihilakh Oxide, so here's how the metal is going to look. Too much weathering, or not enough?

Just a minor update, a tiny bit of highlighting on the bone. Taking the teeth a level lighter makes a big difference I think!

Bronze base coat on the first whole batch. I was a bit unhappy on the Nihilakh Oxide on the test model, so I redid the bronze; I think properly it'll be better done dotted in certain chain links rather than spread across the whole chain and just hoping it'll settle in the crevices, because that way it ended up shading the raised areas as well in strange ways.
