This is the first time I’ve used contrast paint on anything and I feel like I used it the right way but the way it runs on flat surfaces and often leaves difficult to reach areas like the tops of these kurnoths is kind of frustrating as you need to use a light base coat for them. I think it works better than just slapping agax earthshade on them but I’ll relegate this stuff to just another tool I can use to diversify my color range in my Sylvaneth collection.
As an aside here are some bett
Due to being laid off at work I am having to get rid of a lot of my collection. I’m not happy about it but you gotta do what you gotta do. I was thinking about the history of my little project and came up with this. Hope you enjoy.
Deep under the surface of Arranoc a mutual bargain was struck between Darkling exiles and Duardin prospectors. The Thrall hosts would dwell close the the surface and aid the Duardin in protection against their mutual foes as well as ample trade. The Darkling
I got some work done on my squig riders last night. It’s been some time since I have painted so it was good to get back on track. I started with some 40k Eldar that got me motivated to finished my collection. These guys are not done yet but with some more time I think they will turn out good.
I haven’t had much time to work on my projects so I haven’t had much time to post any new progress. My wife got me an Idoneth Battalion and another set of squigs and I bought a considerable about of tzeentch daemons doubling my chaos army which has been neglected for over a year and a half.
I still am not sure how to proceed with the squigs. I’m either gonna drybrush them or put a darker red wash on them. I’m tempted to base coat them then throw in the contrast paint just to see what it
I’ve gotten all the looncurse models assembled and I now a sizable Gloomspite Gitz army to paint up. I’m waiting to get a red ink wash before I finish them so we will see how long that takes.
I was doing a little thinking and I’m thinking of having these guys come as a newly arrived faction to Arranoc that came while the isle shifted into the realm of life near the time the bad moon was near the area and after the moon left the squig herd found its way to one of the outer druid-kingdoms
I finally got my looncurse box today. I’m pretty excited to get back on to working on Sylvaneth though I have started painting some of my Squigs. Well anyway I took some pictures for anyone who wants to see.
I am finally getting around to posting some progress in here. It took me over a month to do it but I got through the slug of painting a bunch of starter set stormcasts which though was fun replication my original method for hallowed knights on so many at once made even the smaller steps take hours. The majority of them look really good for my standard of painting but that graph-charger looks hideous. Once I get around to painting what’s left the second stromstrike box my wife got me out of th
I made good progress this week and finished the few remaining models. All that is left are the banshees and that won’t take long. I’m thinking of getting more as well as the mortarch and craven king to finish the army. Once the army. Is at the 2000 mark I want to try a game with them and see what that looks like.
I finally finished the chainrasps and based the Grimghast Reapers as well as the shackleghiest. Aside from some touch ups they are done and I am moving on to the knight of shrouds. Next week will see the rest of the sheets done and hopefully a nice cohesive army
I have made some progress on my soul wars set. I have the chainrasps about 70 percent done as well as the spirit torment. These guys have been particularly easy to get through especially after all the other nighthaunts I have painted the last few months. Once these guys are finished it’ll be off to the reapers and stalkers with the other characters and then after that possibly the stormcasts. I will say that painting all these ghosts has been a lot of fun and I will feel a little sad once I
I finally got some shelf space cleared to set up my models. Seeing it now it seems like a lot of models but I know it isn’t enough hahaha. The chaos army is kinda lacking sitting in the back corner and that sea of dryads takes up a lot of space. It is really nice to see them all set up together for once.
I think these grim ghost reapers have to be the fastest from sprue to paint that I have ever done. We got them last Thursday and now they are perhaps 3 more steps to completion. I threw in the Banshees in with them for the sake of it. I love the way the dry brushing looks on Nighthaunt models and makes it so much easier than picking out the lines with a small brush. I have so many large brushes that I can sacrifice as many as needed unto the alter of progress. I order Soul Wars and it shoul
I finished the dryads and got them based. As I start to see what my painting looks like it the day light I notice that I rush through models very quickly and often leave mistakes that glaringly stare me down every time I get the models out to look at. Given I don’t have a proper place to paint and the lighting is usually bad when I do get to paint through the night until 5 am on my days off of work it becomes evident I need to get a place for myself that I can focus on painting more. I have n
I have finished assembling and primed the Sylvaneth. I’m thinking of using a few different shades of brown should give it a nice diversity. I have been waiting for a spirit of durthu for a long time and I’m happy to finally have one.
I finished a few units of my nighthaunts the wife got me for Christmas. They were surprisingly easy to paint after the two week affair with the orruk boys. I got some new paints from the crafts store so the base color on the dreadscythes is different from the rest of the army but I am ok with that. I really enjoyed painting the dreadscythes despite my appreciation to to hormagaunt arms they have.
When end I had primed the bladeghiests the spray paint had been sitting for too long
Hello everyone it has been almost 8 months since I have been able to post anything on my hobby blog. In real life my wife has had both a tummy tuck and BBL in one year so as you can imagine the finances have been short in the hobby department. Now that the holidays have come and gone I acquired several units of nighthaunts so I’m looking forward to painting some more ghosts. Over the last two weeks I got motivated to paint some of my Orruks and I ended up finishing my close combat boys. Here
I recently ordered a bunch or Orruk boys to add numbers my destruction army which has turned into a Greenskinz force though I’m thinking of adding in some gutbusters leadblechers and an ironblaster. They are from the 6th edition starter set from way back when I started the hobby. The nostalgia is real today!
I managed to finish all the odds and ins details on the first 8 orrruks that I managed to salvage from my Bitz. One even has googles from a deff kopta pilot.
I also decided that the necromancer Arborius will be a deathlord much like the woman from Lord of the Undead novel. He being tasked with the spread of blood cults for the Legion of Blood on Arranoc. Secreted onto the island through the years from various realms Arborious has gathered vampire husks and hide them all around Arranoc
The path of elevation within the Druid order is a long ordeal that many cannot accomplish the intricate enchantments and mastery of life magic that would grant them access to the Wellspring of Renewal. Being near to the source within the Temple restores a beings soul and fills them with vitality hence the power the ancient treelords possess anywhere on the island though the almost never leave the confines of the great tree the temple was built within. Those druids that cannon grow within the d
Arranoc, the last of the Shimmering Isles is a great metropolis of tree and stone spanning the entire surface of the original island. The span of life goes ever upwards as the life magics at the Well of Renewal fuel the city’s growth. Great buildings formed of twisting branches of interwoven trees grow and calcify by the hands of skilled life mages. to become the foundations for a new generation to build upon. At the heart of the city is the Temple of Renewal from where the Well flows out int
After the recent move we now have an area dedicated to our nerdy pursuits. My intent with this blog is to have a place where I can post updates on my armies and writing. Mostly I have been focusing on my Death and Destruction factions, though the Orruks are still unprimed and waiting for more boys to make the effort worthwhile. So far I have the majority of my nighthaunts painted with a basic two tone drybrush that seems to be my go to for cloth-like texture, smoke, and wood. I hope to update
Boledrian cast the runic seeds for a tenth time with the same result. Always the specter reigned above the Lady. Death over life. No divining with runic seeds was ever the same, with slight variations in the scatter. But this was different. The seeds told the same story every casting.
"Death will reign", creaked a figure from the shadows of the dark night. The voice belonged to the malicious spite-revenant that was his near constant companion.
Boldrian gathered the seeds and
After spending most of my hobby time on Warseer and seeing the grand alliance as a far more positive environment to grow as a hobbiest I have decided to move my blog here. I have quite a large army painted already and I intend on posting my updates and pictures of my battles here as my forces grow.
I am really proud of my army as it has grown over the past nine months. I intend on getting more Stormcast eternals, a Sylvaneth army, and perhaps some other factions depending on how I feel a
