UPDATE - 12th September

Ravagers. One with Dark Lances and one with Disintegrators. I did think about trying to magnetise the weaponry but it seemed to be incredibly fiddly to do. I will be getting another Ravager soon and will attempt to magnetise the weapons on that one. Then I will have one Ravager of each type and a third that can be swapped over so I can field 2 of either type in any battle. Third heavy support slot is usually taken up with either a pain engine or flyer anyway.













Next up are Wyches, as I find myself rather short on Troop choices at the moment.

Sathonyx looks great, love the red.
Ravager looks good, though the sail could do with a bit of shading maybe?

Both Ravagers look very well done, very clean and neat. I like the different coloured weapon types, I do a variation of the same.

Had missed your Baron, and I have to agree with ftayl5. Very nice!

Well done on those! Inspiring! The purple on the Ravagers really looks great. I never finished my second one, and here you are getting ready to do a third Twisted Evil

I'm having trouble shading the sails as they are just flat sheets. I've added some darker purple around the edges where the sails meet the mast spines but I'm still not entirely happy with them.

Thank you all for the kind comments.

UPDATE - 27th September

Wyches! Finally got these bad boys (and girls) finished today. I’m looking to make two 5-man squads here to go tank hunting with Haywire Grenades so the Hekatrix is probably not equipped right but I’ll make a full 10-man close combat squad soon so she can go with them. Might do some Bloodbrides at some point, simply because I want to try a reverse of the paint scheme that I used here with red clothing and black armour plates.

Working on a Venom for these girls at the moment and hopefully will have that done shortly, in time for the September Monthly Vow.

UPDATE – October to December

Been a while since I’ve updated the project log. Finished the Venom for the Wyches and painted up another. Still only got three of these bad boys at the moment so I think I might have to invest in some more at some point as they are awesome but far too fragile in such small numbers.







Also added some more Warriors, which I can also use as Trueborn. I now have a total of 30 Warriors/Trueborn, with 8 Blasters, 3 Dark Lances, 2 Splinter Cannons and the rest with Splinter Rifles. This gives me lots of options for the army list.









Next up was a unit of 6 Reavers. These were the guys I bought from Ebay so they were already built and primed black. Unfortunately a couple of the riders didn’t quite fit properly so I had to jiggle with them a bit and ended up replacing one of their arms as I couldn’t get the existing one to fit on the handlebars. I wasn’t sure if Reavers are affiliated to the Wych Cults or not but decided that I would paint them in a similar way, so they have lots of red on them, like my Wyches and Beastmasters.











I’m now working on some new Beastmasters, using Dark Elf Cold One Knights with some Wych bits. I wasn’t keen on my original Beastmasters, which just look like Hellions so I decided to make some new ones. I’ll use some Shardnets and Impalers to make them look like beast handlers, and maybe a spare Agoniser too.

Great looking army Count, I am particularly partial to the Reavers. The edging and highlighting really sets them off.

Well done!

Thanks very much. i was quite surprised at how quick the Reavers were to paint, which is fortunate as I have another 12 of them still to do!

UPDATE – January 2013

Replacements for the old Beastmasters are here. Basically Wyches and Hellions on Dark Elf Cold Ones. Going to do a couple more of these and add in 5 more Khymerae and a Clawed Fiend, using an old metal Ambull model. Not sure I’ll actually use it but will be nice to have the option!

Wow! Those wyches on cold ones look like they were always meant to be there! I guess it's like they say - evil elves always look good on dinosaurs. At some point, I very well might do the same - this just looks too good not to try myself! Really good job.

UPDATE – February 2013

Next 5 Khymerae are done. Decided to change the look of them from my previous version. The old ones are these:



Which I was quite happy with but I saw some LotR Army of the Dead models recently and decided to make the next batch try to look more ghostly.





Also, last 2 Beastmasters:









And another Raider:







I also started to repaint my old Eldar models for use as allies. First up we have the main man, Eldrad Ulthran!







Next up I’m working on some Incubi and another Venom.

Wow, I really like the ghost dogs! Now those are creatures of nightmare! The beastmasters and Eldrad are excellent as well! Great work.

Thanks. Thinking of repainting the first batch of dogs to match the new ones.

Great looking Beastmasters! Did you have much trouble mounting the bodies on the Cold Ones? Makes me want to try and convert a Beastmaster unit up.

I used a couple of passenger models from Raider and Venom kits. These fitted quite well although I had to pose one of them (the one with the whip) as though she was rising up in the saddle rather than sitting on it. The other guys are Hellions and they fitted quite easily apart from one where I had to reposition one of the legs. I also did have to reposition a torso on one of the Hellions as it was leaning too far forwards. I had to cut a wedge out of the pelvis area of the legs to tilt the torso back a bit and fill in some gaps with green stuff. Nothing too complicated though.

Say, could you give a quick rundown how you painted them? I would like to paint a few units like this myself. It seems to be turqouise base, then mixing it with white for all layers, correct? Also, were you drybrushing them?

I'm going from memory here but black primer then a base coat of Castellan Green over the whole body and a layer of Warboss Green over the scales (rather than the leathery skin areas). Drybrush with Zamesi Desert then wash the whole lot with Biel-tan Green. Another lighter drybrush with Zamesi Desert then go over the scales only with Waywatcher Green glaze. I think that's about it. The horns and spines were basecoated Rakarth Flesh, washed with Reikland Fleshshade and highlighted with Ushabti Bone.

Have to say I was very, very pleased with the way they turned out. I think they look very natural, which works nicely next to the supernatural beasts they run with.

I really like the way u paint ur raiders/ravagers and the crews for them... do u do something special with the black or is it just really good lighting?

Cant tell if u highlighted black-gray as well as the purple edges or just black with the purple edge highlights

For the vehicles I don't highlight the black areas at all as most of the edges will end up being purple anyway and that draws attention away from the black parts.

For the crew, and also my Kabalite Warriors/Trueborn I spray black and then drybrush the whole model with Lucius Lillac before washing the whole model with Druchii Violet. I then edge highlight the armour plates with Genestealer Purple and wash them again with Druchii Violet before picking out all the flesh, metal, hair etc.
