The Wastelands of Warcry! Death stalks the Varanspire!

Recommended Posts

From the realm of Chamon, where shimmering rivers of molten steel flow through natural volcanic forges, come the Crimson Anvils! Their skin's hue is warped by the metals they work. Over the years their hands and forearms blacken as the fierce heat of forge-work takes its toll on a member of the Crimson Anvils.

Dominar Khaddun raises his warhammer as the ruined remains of an enemy warband's equipment are piled at his feet. His burnt-black hands contrast against his sickly metallic-blue flesh

The Chaos Duardin, Drakur Dvalhir, waves his twin mallets. Behind him stomps the muscle-bound, armour-plated Ogor, Gul'ok Khar.large.297503865_CrimsonAnvilsGroup.JPG.3b4e0f38ba2550ede6969a346af4843f.JPG

The agile Drillmaster, Borscha Greel, sweeps his great flail around her to protect the icon-bearing Prefector. Beside her a lowly Legionaire, Drann Stalis.

Hope you like these metallic monsters! Hopefully I can get some pictures of my favourite warband soon. Hint: They are creeeeeeeepy bunch who wear masks on Geheimensnacht as their faces are far too scary!

The Stalkers of Kur'esh burst from the misty depths of Ulgu! Their skinned faces adorn their belts, and the more experienced a tribesman, the more flesh they sacrifice to the Lord of Joy!

The whole warband and their misty bases!

large.1280180068_TheStalkersofKureshGroup.JPG.3812a378dadd7253fa7a6e985d3585d4.JPG

A trio of Awakened Ones. I love the pose of the spear wielder at the fore! I do also like the charging Ascended One on the right and his armoured sleeve!

Another of my favourite models from this warband (I do like them all! Brilliantly creepy!) Tribesmen with skinned arms hanging from their waist are painted with skinned arms. The higher the rank of a tribesman, the more flesh they sacrifice.

The Joyous One leaps into the fray! I tried to keep the mist to a minimum so as not to overdo it. The thought of these bursting through a claustrophobic, fogged forest is terrifying!

The Blissful One in all her gory glory. Another delightfully creepy miniature!

The creepy body horror of these miniatures is great! They are some of my favourite Warcry miniatures. Hope your like them!

Not many warbands left for me to paint! I would like to work on the Death warbands as part of this month's Halloween theme!

     Oh, I’m loving the look of your Unmade @mcfishstick. I may have borrow (steal) your flayed idea there... is it just Blood for the Blood god over a skin tone base coat?  I’m hoping it isn’t too difficult.

I used contrast paints mainly. Here are the paints I used for the areas of bare muscle:

White basecoat

Blood Angel's Red Contrast

Leviadon Blue and Contrast Medium (to shade the whole miniature)

Vallejo Dark Sand (to make fine lines to give a muscle effect)

Blood Angel's Red Contrast (not too much)

Flesh Tearer's Red Contrast

Finally, a Gloss varnish on just the muscle, the rest of the miniature was matt varnished.

 

Hope it helps!

     @mcfishstick, thanks for the recipe, I don’t have any of the red contrasts so I may test a red acrylic/contrast medium mix to see how it comes out. I may be able to swing it without buying yet another two pots of different red paints (seriously think I’m drowning in reds sometimes).

For such small parts Any red glaze should work. I really like Vallejo's Glaze medium. Mix that with any paint to make a glaze! I think the dark blue glaze is what helps make the bright red really pop too.

I'll be interested to see your warband when its done!

Finally finished all the models I started during halloween!

First up, furies. I converted them all to have individual poses. I could have come up with more interesting designs for their wings, but I just wanted to get them done.

Next, the Beacon of the Sorrowful, a nighthaunt warband.

A band of lost ghosts that follow Uoloi the Dreadwarden's magical beacon. Uoloi is gathering the souls lost within the wastes. Some say Uoloi rounds the souls up for the great Nagash, others say Uoloi is a fallen Sigmarite, continuing his quest to save the lost into the afterlife.

Finally, Bel-Oren's Grim March! A warband led by Bel-Oren, an Aelven mage who seeks to find the secret to immortality. He searches the wastes where few dare to tread, driven by a desire to save his soulmate from Nagash's clutch. Along the way He has learnt to bind souls to corpses, but the power to bring back his love eludes him still.

Warbands of Death, Assemble! The armies of Nagash march on Chaos. The warbands of Death unite!

Next up I'm working on the Splintered Fang, and the Corpsewrack Mausoleum. Hopefully I'll get them done far faster!

Thanks for all the replies! Some updates!

The Splintered Fang emerge from the swamps of Ghyran! I tried to give them swampy bases.large.DSCN8042.JPG.07c3860755c89e6e3e8ae2cdad204491.JPG

I love the shield wall pose!

Also managed to complete a Chimera! I tried to give it more natural colours than the Games Workshop 'universe of stars Chimera'.

I recently finished painting Gotrek Gurnisson. I always enjoyed his novels, and love the idea of him roaming the Varanspire searching for something dangerous to fight. I'll try and get some pictures of him this week.

I'd also like to upload some scenic photos I've taken of different warbands fighting over painted scenery.

Next on the painting table is Galrauch the a chaos dragon and a Jabberslythe. Hope I get them done soon!
