  1. Hi all This month I'll be eagerly waiting the next shipment of Mortal Realms collection, because some very cool models are coming, and supposedly also the FEC extra comes this month in Spain. So, for now, I'll pledge to fully paint: 5 chainrasps The third and last building of the mausoleum (Garden of Morr) and the statue. Also, complete all four bases. Some walls of that, also Also, I'll work on some bases for the last minis painted: Mortis Engine Treelord Ancient Some chainrasps And lastly, I'll build lots of models that I hope are coming in Mortal Realms, and paint some. I cannot be more precise, because I don't know if 2 or 4 issues will be sent. If 4 are sent, I'll get 5 Harridans, 1 Spirit Torment, 1 KoSoS, 1 Guardian of souls, 1 lord arcanum on gryph and 1 Evocator Prime. And the FEC! If I need to complete, I'll build, prime and paint up to 10 more chainrasps to finish the 40 model blob. I'm eager for this month's work!
  2. Hi all Some other hobby came in (some Arduinos) and had some unexpected BBQs so I almost finished my original pledge. I completed the Harrows, 2 buildings from the mausoleum (that was the idea), finished my son's Treelord Ancient (what a nightmare of branches) and completed 5 chainrasps, with another 5 in progress but not completed. Apart from these bits of the original pledge, I've completed the buildings with their bases, and helped my son with the cleanup of the base coats and shading of his 2 Sequitors. I'll teach him how to hightlight them next month, so they are wip. So I've worked the amount I wanted, but diverged a bit from the plan. Fair enough ๐Ÿ˜… Now the photos, starting with the Harrows: Then, the buildings A detail of the finished treelord and finally the WIP sequitors I won't post any chairasps until I hopefully finish the 40 model blob next month (25 done and 5 WIP) Game on!
  3. Hi all This month I'll paint 2 Dreadblade Harrows, 10 chainrasps, at least 2 pieces of scenery from the Sigmarite Mausoleum and I will finish my son's Treelord Ancient. As a stretch, i have lots more chainrasps in reserve, as well as the rest of the mausoleum. Let's go!
  4. @Jymmy Thanks a lot for your suggestion. It's something I've been thinking of lately, but I kind of like the natural colors of the sand and the stones. They give "realism", I might say. But it's also something I have to try some day.
  5. @Artobans Ghost Thanks mate ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Still lots to learn, but I it is a good start. For the eyes (if it is of any interest for the community), I followed this tutorial from Squidmar. It turned out really easy!
  6. Hi all. I've been able to complete my pledge successfully, to my relief ๐Ÿ˜… Further more, It's the first time I have added some rust effects on some metals (subtle, still) and I've been improving my gradient skills, with (i think) good results on reds, nice results on greens, and mixed results on blue. I don't do heavy gradients yet, tho. Still improving. Now the photos. I've liked a lot painting the thorns, as i have already painted 20 chainrasps, I got the trick of it. Added rust effects to the blades, and nice gradients on the reddish parts: With that practice, I went on to further work on the reddish gradients on the tomb banshee. Also, first time using Green Fluorescent paint (Vallejo) for some effects on the eyes. I'm quite happy with the outcome: Enough red. Next, for a total change of theme, I painted the Knight Questor, giving him extra care. First time adding some freehand details. I'm very happy with all of it. But, yeah, I've given this guy around 8 hours of my life.... And last but not least, I painted all three vampires of the diorama, which I call "my RGB vampires". Very happy with all, as well. The blue one gave me some problems on the highlights in blue, because I went with turquoise, but got it more or less sorted with a glaze, and learnt a lot in the process, about gradients, 3d prints, magnets (I magnetized all the vampires and the cauldron), creepy eyes... The Treelord is still wip and the banshees for the mortis engine are finished too, but I won't post the photos again because it looks more or less the same as last month's without them Also, my 10 year old kid wants you all to know that he has painted a kurnoth hunter (only small fine detail corrections from me) Very satisfied!! On to next month!
  7. @MarkK Wow, that looks incredible!!!! Thanks very much for the tips and the visual example. It helps a lot!
  8. Thanks guys. I don't have "The fang" and my store didn't have stock of Vallejos "Sombre grey" that could have been close when I last went shopping, but I'll try to get as close as possible by mixing "Heavy blue grey", which I have, with some blue, and black, so it doesn't get very light. I like the idea of "blueish reflections from the dress" ๐Ÿ˜ I'll try this evening ๐Ÿ˜ƒ You all have provided great hints to this n00b. Thank you!
  9. Hi all. I'd like some advice if you might I'm painting the vampires of the Coven Thrones, and one will be wearing blue. Then we decided (and by we I mean my wife) that the vest will be black leather, but i'm not sure how I can hightlight on black, so the belts she's wearing will be properly seen. This is a photo of a her, very WIP. I am not even sure if I like the turquoise highlights on the blue, or how I can improve them. Thanks in advance!
  10. Maybe a reanimated dead giant? Leaning towards deadwalkers theme could be easier (to paint and to fit thematically)
  11. This month I'll be cautious, because I have bought Total War: Warhammer 2 and have to split the hobby time with that serious competitor. I pledge to do the following bits of the Mortal Realms Collection: Thorns of the Briar Queen Tomb Banshee Knight-Questor The banshees of the Mortis Engine (so it will be finished) Optionally, I'll work a bit on my son's Treelord Ancient, or most probably I'll work on this diorama/terrain I've come up with, using the spare vampire ladies from the Mortis Engine and some OpenForge printed floors and walls (from the Dungeon Stairs set).
  12. Hi all This month I diverged a bit from what I pledged, but I've done a lot of work nonetheless. I batch-painted all the ghosty parts of the stalkers, the thorns and the chainrasps I painted the Glaivewraith Stalkers, fully detailing their nightmarish bases I painted the second third (the stairs) of the mortis engine Then, instead of going on with the thorns, I continued with the mortis engine, until almost the end. Only the banshees left. And I'm pretty happy with the results, I must say ๐Ÿ˜… Also I built the new Mortal Realms stuff, to see it built, but didn't touch the Treelord Now, the photos, starting with the stalkers: And now the Engine The guy is magnetized (just to test on magnetizing) but the cage is only fixed on it's own molds, wich stays pretty strong. I thought it was a shame not being able to see the altar. Yes, I'm happy
  13. Yes, it was my imagination tricking me I saw in fauxhammer "Sigmarite mausoleum" and decided it was the full retail box, wich has the contents doubled ๐Ÿคฃ Later, I checked the initial image of "whats included in the collection" and it only appeared this "half of the big box", so all my fault I'm so anxious for plastic, it seems
  14. In Mortal Realms magazine, wich features all Nighthaunt units but also Olynder and the Mortis Engine, wich I think should be a hint, in one of the issues I received today they introduced the Legions of Nagash, without Legion of Grief. In other issue Olynder is called Mortarch of Grief, but said that Nagash gave her the command of the Nighthaunt. Interpretations.... ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
  15. It just arrived at my home. From the sigmarite mausoleum there are only 2 sprues with the crypts, no floor or walls. If fauxhammer is correct and this is a third of it (and probably it is) it seems that only half of the Sigmarite Mausoleum will come. Shame! And the inside guide suggests so, also ๐Ÿ˜ญ
