Apologies for the lack of content for a while. I got this fella finished up a few weeks ago, but I only got a chance to photograph him last night. He got his first outing in battle against Colin’s Gitz where he was ignominiously ganked by a horde of goblin archers, so he currently sits on the shelf of shame. (The shelf of shame is the same as the regular shelf; the shame is inferred.)
I had left this guy until last because I’m intimidated by painting any model bigger than infantry, but after I’d painted the Lord Executioner I was confident that I could do a good job on him and I was pretty sure what colours I’d use, so I was actually looking forward to painting this one.
I made sure to write down the recipe for the horse flesh as if I ever increase this army to 2000 points I’ll probably get a Black Coach, so I want to make sure I can replicate it. If you’re interested, it’s as follows:
- Incubi Darkness basecoat
- 50/50 Coelia Greenshade/Lahmian Medium shade all over
- Watered down 50/50 Abaddon Black/Lahmian Medium recess shade
- 50/50 Sotek Green/Lahmian Medium feathered onto edges and raised areas
- Temple Guard Blue highlight
- Baharroth Blue dot highlight
- Ulthuan Grey dot highlight on very sharpest points
When I get a chance I’ll take some photos of the whole army as it stands at 1000 points. I’m also tempted to have a go at doing a video of some of my guys, similar to how GW do their release trailers. They look like a lot of fun to do.
Our next event is an AoS Skirmish weekend in mid-July, so I’ve got a bunch more terrain and boards to do for that in the mean time. I’m also thinking about swapping over to Stormcast for the Skirmish as I’ve not had a chance to use my converted Steelheart’s Champions in Nightvault yet, so it’ll give them a chance to get some table time. I believe they’re only 80 points, so I can convert up a Stormcast hero to lead them and maybe squeeze in one or two minions as well. We’ll see how it goes.
Till next time!
