Blood Reaver Gallery and Skin Painting Guide

Posted on October 12th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

The last week has been a blur. I was on duty in the boarding house 3 nights in a row, and we’re just gearing up for half term. But I did get some painting done over the weekend!
Here are the school club’s Blood Reavers, finally painted up to a decent standard. I’m not doing anything more to them, as they’re there to die in droves anyway.


Ethnic diversity is a weird subject to mention in the same breath as orruks and aelves, but I do approve of variety in colours. There are three different skin tones here, one of which turned out a little too orange leading to a HILARIOUS name given to them by my students.

Caucasian skin:
Ushabti bone
Wash with Reikland fleshshade

Dark skin:
Mournfang Brown
Wash with Agrax Earthshade

Trump skin:
Tau Ochre
Wash with Reikland fleshshade

I really don’t like painting hordes, which has put me off Imperial Guard since the beginning of time, and part of that is down to the faff of painting skin tones. The above methods are great for quickly getting through a bundle of chaff units, and have a decent enough look to them for games.

I’m now a little inspired to do an Age of Sigmar army. And I think I have a unique enough slant on a well established faction to make that fun…

Until next time!

Schools League 2017: The First Age of Sigmar Skirmishes

Posted on September 21st, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

The club started a few days ago, and I have some time to upload some of the images from the first few skirmishes.
There are some odd alliances popping up, and students get out all their new toys gathered over Summer. We’re kicking off with the Age of Sigmar mosh pit, with Stormcast Eternals rubbing shoulders with Bloodbound against Serphon and Kharadron Overlords. 


 



As you can see, a complete mess of a battle, with some very dodgy interpretations of the rules. But it’s beautiful to see for the simple fact that I had no part in it. The senior Initiates set it up themselves, giving the new player Neophytes units to roll dice with, and I was able to marshal a game for the absolute raw beginners.

I think we’re off to a flying start this year, and I can’t wait for the next session to get some team training going!

Until next time.

Project Club Room: First Pictures
