The mist! They came from the mist! That sickening green mist emerged from the shore, and they came for us. We who bear the black spot, we are doomed.

Hello! First post here, I'd like to introduce myself with a project i've been thinking around since the experimental list of the Vampire Coast, and now with the rules from the Wraithfleet (or the surprisingly similar Legion of Night) and the release of the idoneth shipwreck I knew that the moment has come.

Orval Vesh is the supreme admiral of the Fleet of Bones and self-proclaimed Mortarch of the Deeps, a deathlord wannabe whose greed is only overcome by his ego.

He even "assembled" his own dread abyssal, Dagonys, out of the corpses of some of the greatest creatures from the seas of the realms, like the deepmare of Cerinthgaile, athelian queen of Fuethán, or the two headed lurkinarth that hunted the deeps near the Coast of Tusks.

The fleet keeps growing with the corpse cart (corpse boat?), a drowned banshee and a necromancer: a soulscryer who thought he could negotiate with the undead pirates in exchange for new souls for his idoneth soldiers.
Now his own soul is trapped in the dead man chest and he is a slave of the pirates, helping the fleet in pursuing the souls of the very idoneth he swore to protect.

I planned to use the flying ship as a terrorgheist (thus called The Black Shriek), but a lot of people told me that doing so would be... well, weird.
Now I'm thinking in use some proper monster as the terro (maybe a kharybdiss or an idoneth turtle), and the ship as a coven throne or bloodseeker palanquin.

My first idea for the palanquin was a conversion that implyied the spirit host of a mortis engine and a dark eldar raider as the vampire's pleasure barge. It turned out terrible and was discarded.
But I liked the vampire conversion. Just as Orval Vesh wants to be a mortarch like Mannfred, I made a generic vampire using the body of Neferata.

So what do you think of this?

Stunning! I love all the little touches; the spirit host chasing the peasant, the sea creatures on the spirit host base and the simplicity of the banshee conversion (2001 spirit host body with deamonette head?).

Brilliant creative conversions, a nautical theme can be difficult to execute but you've knocked it out the park.

Thanks for the comments!

I see that you guys liked the ghost sea horses a lot. At first I thought that the cheap plastic tails would look plainly weird and out of place, but once painted the minis they blended really nicely with the horses. Phew!

@Black Waltz the banshee model is just one of the Coven Throne vampires with a daemonette head. Yes, the kit comes with three banshees, but I'm planning to add those to the bloodseeker palanquin and my future mortis engine.

Talking about the palanquin, it's finished! I still had no background for the vampire lady, but I can tell you that she logs where the best blood samples are in a vast map that's always with her. (As I lack of such painting skill, the map as painted by lanadanollora in instagram, maybe you've seen his nurgle circus army in warhammer community)

In life, Isaiah Letzel was the miserly quartermaster of the sturdy Ydrargyreid at the Beryllium Sea.
In death, he is the eternal guardian of the souls captured by the Fleet of Bones.

Isaiah now commands the spectral figure of the old ship, suitably renamed the Wraithdagger, and he claims the very souls of his enemies as a macabre booty, kept in the dead man's chest located at the guts of the ship.
His scummy courses are lost in the myriad of screams and mourns of the cloud of tormented spirits that swarm the ship constantly, preventing it of any harm: they know that the destruction of the dead man's chest would mean the utterly destruction of their last anchor to the Mortal Realms, and their fall into the void.

I really love the theme this whole army represents, it feels very spooky and, well, fantastic. It’s super unique, and I can’t say I’ve seen anything else like it. Where did you get the idea from? It’s super cool.

I signed up to this forum in the hopes of seeing a spooky ghost ship or undead pirates, and you did not disappoint!  Thank you!  They look great.

It looks amazing! I'm also finishing a pirate themed army and this post has given me a few ideas for units I couldn't fit in it. 

Btw, I love that map skirt.

Everything looks great, but the map on the gown of the vampire lady is the best, a really nice touch, it conveys perfectly how she is totally focused on her goal.

I have a mind of starting a nautical themed nurgle mortals warband for skirmish, could you tell me what you used for the coral/seaweed hanging from the mortarchs back? caribou moss or something similar?
