And some more not-so-great pictures for you!  This week saw a pretty decent amount of work being put into my Grimghast Reapers.  The bases have been washed and drybrushed.  The scythe handles have been highlighted.  The bodies (both purple spirit and red poncho/cowl) have been highlighted up as far as I'm going to take them and been given a matt varnish from the airbrush (which has removed all of the patchy satin bits you occasionally get from washing).  And finally I've got the silver highlights on half of them :)

So I've got the remaining silver highlights to do (30 Reapers plus a Spirit of Torment and Guardian of Souls).  Brown rust/verdigris patches to apply.  Skulls on the bases (only half a dozen or so) and the grey stone work.  Airbrush the edges of the base (black and then steel legion drab to match) and then the flame on the guardian of souls.  And finally apply some snow effect over the bases.  Depending on how things go I might be able to get that lot done this evening/tomorrow evening, but regardless they'll be sorted by the end of the week.

I've made the decision not to field the Myrmourn Banshees, Chainghast or Chainrasp for Blackout, which is probably a bit of a saving grace.  Part of me is also tempted to paint them up as part of a pure Nighthaunt army, but themed to a realm - but that's for another day ;)

Immensely easy - the skulls are all separate (even on the push fit models) so just don't glue them in place :)  I do think they benefit from being painted black inside though, if you use a light undercoat they'll be took light otherwise.

It’s the end of the month everyone! Post up your pics and your progress and let’s crack open August!

I completed my Khorgorath, the Bloodsecrator and rebased/assembled a bunch of Horrors. (The Horrors need pics ...)

I can't remember if I pledged or not. But I built soul wars and painted a test mini for my stormhost "the Azyrite Crusade".

Just updating where I got last night (it was still technically July ;))

Only a tiny little bit of work left to do!  I've verdigris to apply to the gold/brass bits, 16 Skulls on the base to paint up, drybrushing on the stonework on the bases, Guardian of Souls flame, little hourglass and then the apply Valhallan Blizzard to all of the bases.  It's still a few hours worth of work, but overall happy to say that I've achieved ultimately what I was after.
