    Cheers mate- if I'm ever looking rid of them you'll get first refusal! I have lots of plans for the army- turning wood elf sisters of the thorn into female blood knights [I think the stags and lady riders will fit better than the bulky knights], I want to get the new spirit hosts, a terrorgheist and .. lots! But I have quite a lot undercoated to paint up- might do an army shot- just to see where I am with the army- some of the units have been added to but not painted and I want to add to the patina on the armour of some of the earlier models. I'll do one when I get the first 5 black knights finished.. possibly .. enjoying my painting at the moment.

    No problem- just have a play, lots of layers and let it pool and build up in places.

    Cheers! Glad you are liking it- having a play is the key I think.

    Got the standard bearer finished with a rushed job today-




    And with his mates-





    Still have five more including the champion to do but thats a full rank done and I'm fairly pleased.
    Got 5 more skellies done as well, pretty quick-



    With last weeks 5-


    Might have to add to the patina on earlier models for the army- liking where it is going.
    Next - might finish off a few hammerers and do a few more skellies. Plenty more beyond that for all 3 armies- main thing is to keep going.

    Thanks for looking.

    almost as if I planned it...
    Steal away! I certainly have from others much more talented than I!

    Busy with work so not much done- finished the last 5 skellies, just have to go over the armour of the rest of the unit I did previously - shouldn't take too long [just the 35! but it is quite quick] The move on to the spear unit.




    with their mates..



    Started the blood knight conversion- not sure its undead enough, a bit too elf-y, I'm hoping the paint scheme will really set it up= pics next week and maybe an army shot to take stock of where the army is at.
    Thanks for looking.

    The rust effect is really well done.

    Thanks mate- just trying to go back and add it do other units I've done before now.

    Got the front rank of the shield skeletons done with the new patina/rust [they where painted before]. The unit looks like this now with the back 20 needing the rust effect updated.




    Started a rough lady blood knight kit bash -needs a bit more work before I show it i think. I'll try and get an army shot up next.

    Those skeletons look great. Somehow I think that undead armies (proper undead. Skeletons and stuff.) look their best with a very monochromatic colour scheme. The rust effect adds all the colour required. Are those skellies dipped?

    Cheers Sigur! No the skellies are just hit with a few heavy washes and short of dry brushed/highlighted with a few extra washes into recesses as necessary- simple and relatively quick

    Soooo... back again. Been really busy with work but i have done some painting- more Nids and recently finished 4 more black knights, I just have to do the champion and a vampire hero to finish the unit. The 4 finished knights are below, bit of a push on through job but great to have them done-





    The vamp hero is in progress- a mournful knight by Gamezone- thinking I might get a unit of these to use as blood knight substitutes. Although I have been working on a kit bash substitute using the wood elf stag rider kit- but more of that later- needs the paint job finished before I can make a decision on it.
    Vamp-


    Sorry the photos are dark- quick iPhone pics.

    No army pics yet- busy as a bee with work but a few snaps of what I have floating around my painting desk at the moment.
    Just finished these ghouls which is rather nice-enjoying the undead and thinking of treating myself to one of the start collecting boxes to add a centre piece or two to my collection. I was thinking Malignants for the spirit hosts and a mortis engine - especially after seeing this but the Flesh Eater Court looks very tempting too..


    Speaking of AoS- the Sylvaneth are very tempting, bought a few- they are on the back burner a bit, still trying to sort the scheme and I think they need lighter foliage on the bases [trying to avoid snow as tempting as it is..]. The scheme is supposed to be of a dark, wild wood and there are a few bits to finalise but you get the idea..




    And I've also returned to working on my Eldar- its a bit of a challenge as my painting is so messy and they suit a clean paint job but I decided just to get on with it and try and enjoy it otherwise I'd never paint them!
    Here's a tester for the wraith axes-


    And lastly some Nids -I've painted quite a few but trying to get the SpaceHulk Stealers done on the wild off chance I get a game..Not the best but I'm getting there.



    More to come but this is a taster to get back into painting and posting, maybe an army shot or two at the weekend, work permitting..

    Superb undead models. The contrast between the icy pale blue cloth and the rusty armour and weapons is really striking. The winter basing sets them off to a tee. Keep up the good work!

    Cheers! I think I may have caved into the snow base addiction again...

    Thanks! Will do!

    So.. I have been painting but not getting too much finished and then I saw the Kharadron Overlords models... After I got over my initial shock [which required two breakfasts..] I'm totally smitten. Handily they will roughly coincide with my birthday so guilt free buying ahoy! However I've decided I need to clear the decks and get some of my half done models finished. So to start that process heres a few updates.

    Did a spirit host from the Start Collecting Malignants-


    I had a Neurothrope almost finished so naturally I started painting my other 3rd ed Zoanthrope...


    With his mate..


    First up to be finished is a half squad of guardians I put together from my bits box, wanted to get the scheme settled so I can the rest of the eldar forces finished up.



    The plan is to get the 6 guardians finished and 5 space hulk stealers. There are 5 dwarfs after that and 6 space hulk terminators plus 4 jet bikes ..and then maybe the zoey's..fingers crossed anyway..

    As ever, your undead are outstanding. The colour scheme is beautiful, and your style compliments them so well that you were made for the undead (haha!). It stretches well to the sylvaneth, the force looks intimidating and gives a very different vibe from the GW versions.

    Those are sinister nids. I can see them being a very scary army on a snow topped battlefield which is great. You've done some excellent work on the carapaces, with draws the eye really well.

    The wraith guard is great, it has a nice feel ofr being on campaign, something most Eldar don't normally show. I think the darker tone could either be offset with some more extreme highlights if you don't like the dark, but I really like the scheme. I think it would blend perfectly with the new Ynnari (sp?) as well.
