The blues and browns are coming along.  I have no idea what was going on with the middle picture – my tablet decided the color temperature was totally different.  (I decided not to worry about it, since they are just WIP pics)

Sorceress and Hellion (x2)

After being out of town for nearly two weeks, I’m back in the painting groove attempting to hit 30 points this month.  The first batch of finished minis are a pair of Blight Nyss Sorceresses and their Hellion mounts.

Colors are my standard Legion of Everblight scheme – I did more work with the airbrush this time, in particular the blends to Snow Shadow on the top of the Hellion were done with the airbrush.  The other thing I did was a bit more edge highlighting.  The skulls are from GW’s new box of skulls – very convenient to clip off a few and glue them to the base.

Pictures were taken with my new Surface Pro 2017 with HDR mode enabled.  HDR makes the pictures look a bit nicer but stretch the contrast a bit more than reality.  Compare:

Fyanna, Torment of Everblight

Fyanna2 is the newest warlock to join my stable, and one I hope will see some use.  I can assemble a decent army for her now, and am only a few items away from my “perfect” army.  2nd Angelius, Nyss Warlord and Swordsmen UA.  Figuring out how to fit everything in will be a pain.

Fyanna has a mixture of my standard warlock paint scheme along with the strider scheme.  So she gets MSP HD Winter Blue laminate armor, with P3 Quicksilver metal.  As a blighted nyss, she gets MSP Dusky Skin triad, with white/Citadel Druchii Violet wash for hair.  The strider scheme contributes the RPP Elven Green loincloth, MSP Oiled Leather and MSP Linen White straps and wraps.  MSP Bathalian Chitin is used for claws, armor and bone spurs.  MSP Shadow Silver is used on the chain, since the tone is the same as the Quicksilver, but less bright.  The chain was definitely a pain to paint.

As close as my phone will let me get.

Strider Scouts (including Officer and Musician)

First minis completed in 2017!

I started these guys during Christmas vacation.  Batch painted them, but ran out of steam about 3/4 of the way through, and had to grind out that last 25% over the course of the last few weeks.  They are finally done though, and maybe they’ll get played once I get another heavy or two painted.
