Shadespire: Sepulchral Guard

Posted on November 23rd, 2017 under , . Posted by


As Shadespire has really taken off at the Club I could not help but get swept up in the excitement. There is only a small band of warriors to paint I realised they would need a lot of love and attention. I got my copy of the main rules and the Sepulchral Guard Set as in my opinion are the best looking miniature skeletons GW has ever done.

So, I set to work and managed to get them all done in one day. I won’t go too much into a painting guide with them but here is the colours I used
GW:
Mournfang Brown
Rhinox Hide
Iron Breaker
Ryzer Rust
Ulthuan Grey
Typhus Corrosion
Abbaddon Black
Nuln Oil
Agrax Earthshade
Valljo:
Stone Grey
DunkelGrau (Air)
Flat Brown
Prussian Blue
Magic Blue
Dead White (Air)

Vampire counts style shield

None Shall Pass!

From the back

Very “Jason and the Argonauts” pose

I am happy with how they came out and thoroughly enjoyed their one outing on the board (Even though Stoned Roses Orruks give them a good kicking.)
Next time… More Nightlords from me in Part 3 of into heresy and maybe some bloodbowl to start the Christmas
Thanks

Shadespire – Garrek’s Reavers complete

Posted on November 20th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Painting Garrek’s Reavers, the muscle-bound berserkers of Khorne turned out to be a lot more fun to paint than I was expecting. From the start I set myself two goals: Keep it simple, tabletop standard. Details like eyes, blending or multiple layers were avoided and I stuck to the basics …

Shadespire- painting the Orruks

Posted on November 14th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Hello again, onto the latest shadespire releases, t9 be honest these were the ones I wanted. I love the new Orruks (Orcs). They’re chunky and powerful looking figures, less the jokey Orcs, more the “eat your face as soon as look at you” Orcs.

I wanted these to be black and yellow so I used the citadel paint app and went completely for the same colour scheme, the original plan was to go for more black checks, but I liked the yellow and stuck with it. I also liked the flesh tone they used, it was very organic, the 40k Orcs are a bit too grass green for me.

I’m going to go through painting the yellow, using the app has made me use brighter colours with more extreme edge highlights, I think this is a good thing and draws the eye more to the figure. Onto the yellow-
1. Basecoat of Averland Sunset
2. Shade the whole yellow surface with Casandora Yellow, I don’t use this often but maybe I should, it really warmed the basecoat up to create a contrast for the later layers
3. Yriel yellow to the raised surfaces
4. Edge highlights with Flashgitz Yellow
5. I added this stage myself, an extreme edge highlight of Dorn Yellow

Now you have a good depth of colour to the yellow, I’d also advise the paint app for the “clean black” method, I really like it and will definitely use it in future. Now, here’s some more Orruks!

Shadespire: Ironskull’s Boyz

Shadespire- painting the Bloodborne

Posted on November 13th, 2017 under , . Posted by

With the liberators all finished it’s time to sort out some opponents. I like the bloodborne models, they don’t make me as bitter as sigmarines did. They also have a lot of flesh on them, which I now see as a challenge to make it look good, in the last I think flesh was a scary thing to paint, colours were not ideal, coverage wasn’t great and washes didn’t lie as well. Now it’s much easier. So without further ado, here are my Bloodborne.

The method for the flesh was taken straight from the citadel paint app, I wanted these guys to be super pale, this would create a good contrast with the red and black. So the method was as follows:
1. Basecoat of Rakarth Flesh.
2. Wash with Reikland Fleshshade.
3. Layer the raised surfaces with Flayed One Flesh
4. Slight edge highlights with Palid Wych Flesh
Then you should have a seriously pale blood spilling, khorne worshipping hombre!
I enjoyed painting this guy and the next most, lots of animation in the sculpt







The citadel paint app really helped with these, I did each group in a week, chipping away at stages for an hour or two every other night. Pretty happy with the results, next onto the Orruks!

WIP: Shadespire Steelheart’s Champions Bases

Posted on November 9th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Hello everyone, it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted on here. This year has been extremely busy but I’ve still managed to get some painting done. Today’s post will be very different as it’s solely just about bases. I enjoy basing composition and painting a lot as I feel it is really important to the model and should as to the model instead of taking focus away from it.

Wednesday’s stream will be the first in a series for the newly launched Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire arena miniatures game.
