Painting Stormcast Vanguard

Recommended Posts

Since this is a Warcry-specific project I figured I would start by posting this here. I wanted to build and paint a Warcry Stormcast warband, and because Vanguard got released first, that’s what I started with. But I wanted to make the modeIs  look a bit different, so I threw some kitbashed parts together for my leader, and swapped Sequitor heads without helms for the traditional Vanguard helms. 
 

I’ve just finished the first three models: the Hunter Prime (sword swapped to give him the “Blade of Heroes” relic in an obvious way), a Gryphound, and an Aetherwing. 
 

I’ll post the remainder as I go, and though I don’t move fast, Stormcast don’t take too long at least. The remaining Gryphounds and Aetherwings will all be painted to look like different, real animals. The Gryphound here was basically a test, browns could be a lot of things, and the Aetherwing was painted like a gyrfalcon. 
 

Enjoy!

Although they aren’t as good of pictures (not that the one above is great, in working in a poorly lit room with an iPhone camera), here are some individual shots from when I finished each model.

Another addition to the warband... and he promptly rewarded his paint job by triple-critting an FEC leader to win me tonight’s game! Meet Zadion Brightheart, the oldest and saltiest of the Stormtorn, but also a dead shot with a Hurricane Crossbow.

Yes! The gold armor, the skin, and the leather are all washed with Agrax Earthshade. The blue areas and the silver on the weapons are washed with Drakenhof Nightshade.

Haha you are the only person then who I know doesn’t suffer from new model syndrome.
great paint jobs, and very impressive how you managed to build up the grey on the bird.

Thank you! I do suffer from new model syndrome, but only when the new models aren’t painted lol. So I should really paint more often...

It’s been slow going, but another Aetherwing is finished for the Stormtorn. I’ve played enough games now to be convinced that the Aetherwings are the glue that makes SCE Vanguard work as a scary good warband. Activations, flying movement, the ability to easily take objectives or tie up key enemy pieces, and the reroll double make the birds essential to really playing strong SCE lists. 
 

Anyway, enjoy the latest birb! Painting inspired by the North American red-tailed hawk.
