Showcase: Warhammer Underworlds Farstriders Warband

Today on the blog I share my recently finished Stormcast warband for Warhammer Underwords. This colourful group of warriors are called The Farstriders. I love these models, I mean look at them, hand held repeating crossbows, heavy armour and a parrot. Ok it's not a parrot it's called an Aetherwing. After the jump I share pictures of all my warbands painted so far and give some tips on how I took these photos.  More after the jump

Finished! Zarbag’s Gits wrapped up

Not sure if it really counts as a project, but I’ve been busying myself painting up Zarbag’s Gits for Underworlds, so much so I’ve not painted a thing that wasn’t a little green grot since the start of the year. I’m going to write this here because I’ll forget it otherwise. I wanted to avoid the ancient pot of goblin green I’ve got and looking at the photos, you could be forgiven for thinking I hadn’t used any goblin green at all.. but it’s in there as a basecoat. The end result was giving the flesh a purple wash after the basecoat, then it was simply a matter of using GW’s deathworld forest and death guard green to highlight. Nice and straight forward and I love the final look. If I was feeling brave, I’d try a red / purple glaze on the noses but I’m not that daft to think I could pull that off just yet. The question is… what to turn my attention to next? I have a few more unpainted warbands for Underworlds that need some a

WIP: Nightvault Zarbag's Gitz #5

Did some more work on Zarbag's Gitz. Inspired by the Boggleye in the Gobbapalooza set (seriously, what a great set) I decided to paint Zarbag's hood yellow. I'll also want to add some freehanded "flames" like on the 'Eavy Metal version but in black, kinda inverted. The firefly trapped in his lantern was painted in the same way like my Nighthaunts, hinting at some sort of ethereal spirit. As you might notice, I changed the colour of the wooden bows and staff to a brownish grey, like on my Sepulchral Guard. Felt more consistent. The dark green (seen on the model on the left) also looked a bit weird on the arrows in combination with the yellow fletchings. I'll repaint the models from the first batch to match.Hope I can present you the finished warband soon!

WIP: Nightvault Zarbag's Gitz #4

Second batch of Zarbag's Gotz is completed. Now, onto the final three models, including Zarbag himself! The most challenging piece to paint was actually the smoke on the squig herder. I'm always rather impatient when it comes to blending. I'm quite happy with the results though.How do you like the new Gloomspite Gits models? I think my favourites are the Mangler Squigs, Squig Herd and Gobbapalooza. What are yours?

WIP: Nightvault Zarbag's Gitz #3

Hope you had some nice festive days and found lots of hobby presents under your tree (or whatever your customs are ;) Anyways, another update on Zarbag's Gitz. They are a lot of fun to paint and the upcoming Gloomspite Gitz release makes them even more exciting to work on! The Grot with the net is done, and he'll serve as the test model for the remaining bunch. As you can see, I try to incorporate more yellow as on the 'Eavy Metal versions. My recipe is a basecoat of Averland Sunset, shading with a wash of Fuegan Orange, then edge highlights with Vallejo Game Color Pale Yellow and Formula P3 Menoth White Highlight [you just could mix successive amounts of white into Averland Sunset for a similar result]. What do you think?

WIP: Nightvault Zarbag's Gitz #2

Season's Greetings to all our readers on Tale of Painters! And an update on Zarbag's Gitz. I completed the two Squig models which were a blast to paint. I also started work on the first Goblin model, which serves as the test model for the rest of the warband. In case you're wondering how I painted the Squig and Grot skin, have a look at my paint recipes after the jump.More after the jump

WIP: Nightvault Zarbag's Gitz #1

And now for something completely else! I needed a break from painting terrain, so I picked up Zarbag's Gitz for a little painting challenge. I haven't painted Greenskins before, so this should be fun. I love painting Warhammer Underworlds warbands, as they allow you to paint a bunch of characterful models without the need to commit to a whole army. My rendition will probably be pretty close to the 'Eavy Metal version, so black robes and light green skin, but with a few personal touches here and there. For example, my Squigs will be a deeper crimson red, and I'll try to incorporate a few more yellow spots. Let's see how this turns out.Did you paint Zarbag's Gitz, too, or have you seen a cool alternate paint scheme? Drop a link in the comments below, I'm open for inspiration!

Warhammer Underworlds Restrictions – Could Your Deck Be Affected?

The revelation has unfurled as of yesterday revealing the very first Warhammer Underworlds restrictions and bans for cards within the game. In a game that will soon feature a card roster nearing a thousand in number, this was only inevitable. Pegged as “the ultimate competitive miniatures game”, Warhammer Underworlds continues to sweep into hobby circles across the scene. Blending card play tactics with skirmish miniature warfare, it continues to rope in hobbyists by the boatload. You may have missed it, but we’re still enjoying it since launch. These changes are interesting and exciting indeed, but how could these bans and restrictions impact you? Might they hinder or bolster your deck or warband? Let’s do a little digging… The bans and restrictions will work in different ways. Firstly, these limitations only apply at official organised play events. You are, of course, welcome to play these cards in friendly games and more ‘structured’ events with the discretion of
