Hi all! Been about a month or so, so time for a quick update.
Hobby has been progressing quite nicely on all fronts. Finished off the hurricanum, invested in some contrast paints and vallejo basing paste (huge fan), and binge-watched tons of youtube painting videos. Also had a bit of a change of heart with the list and so I'm now going for an elf-centric Tempest Eye build.
Overall pretty pleased with this. Easily the most complex painting project I've taken on so far and I learnt a lot. Think the additional characters adds some nice narrative aspects and it was fun to bring some different armies into the mix. Hardest part had to be painting the interior and attaching the ogre to the carriage. I made the cables just by twisting up some electrical wire with a doorhandle and electric drill, but fixing them was pretty fiddly.
The concussors are bringing a much-needed stormcasty punch to the army. These guys are the first 'new' sculpts I've got my hands on since getting back into the hobby so I was very impressed with how much the minis had developed compared to the old freeguild models. The dracoths are great to paint also. This one's basically done, maybe another highlight on the cloak, then hoping to get the other finished in the next couple weeks.
Another WIP. This hag queen is going to be my sorceress. Still not happy with the hair but i think the colour selection overall works well.
Here I've got everything painted so far. Coming together quite well and I'm looking forward to hitting that 1k benchmark. Just need to beg/borrow/steal a better camera also.
Future additions will include some handgunners, a dreadlord on black dragon, drakespawn knights (optimistic about these guys since the points drop), phoenix guard and some endrinriggers.

tbh not sure if I can bring myself to buy/paint 30 phoenix guard so this might turn into 10 evocators or 15 sequitors + lifeswarm. Could even be something new in the Morathi book!
