Greetings fellow Commorragh residents! (or prisoners...) Just wanted to post my take on the Kabal of the White Flames from the novels and see what everyone thinks, maybe get some advice! I am in the process of trying to find the symbol used in the book so I can print it out to a decal sheet cuz I really dont want to freehand it onto the raider sails and unit banners so its missing from everything so far...

Sybarite is missing an arm as its magnetic and wasnt primed at same time as unit..










Painting up some reavers now! Cool

I don't know. I have no experience in making my own decals whatsoever. You might want to try it without that background pattern, it might end up looking weird if you use white as the transparent color. Not sure if it will hold its detail scaled down, either. Try using this and give it a go:



Anyway, I really like your colour scheme. It's very striking. Those highlights are ace and really bring out the sharpness and jaggedness of the armour. My opinion is that high-contrast edge highlights don't work well too often, but this is really nice.

Was there any actual description of the White Flames' armor in the books? I've only read Path of the Renegade thus far and only remember a passing mention of it being black.

A great start so far to your Kabal, Shadowblade. Some very nice and neat painting here.

Cheers.

Thanks for the new symbol! Yea I dont have any experience on making my own transfers either, I would want to know if the white would be part of the transfer or if there was a way I could get those parts to print clear or at least the borders around it. Worst case scenario I print it out to scale, use x-acto blade to remove white parts and use it as a stencil Very Happy  Either way Im further ahead now on getting the Kabal marking on them than I was!

And there is not a direct quote from that book or the path to incubus one (another great book!) but the picture on the front of the books gave me some inspiration. I like the black armor they have although on the cover their armor has a green sheen to it, never gonna happen with any kind of skill from me to replicate that so instead I settled with having neon green spots on them: eyes, dark light weapons, gems, etc.. and red is a good contrast to green so I use that for such fabric items as top knots and tabards/arm bands. Used a much darker red tho to not take too much away from the bright green and the black armor.

So cool to see this!! I myself was tempted to make a Realm Eternal army for a while. Will you include Yllithian? Smile



I'd suggest him for Bellathonis, if you're doing that ^

Very nice painting. All that line highlighting would drive me bonkers but looks great and I like the colour scheme you have chosen. Very impressed with your raider. I have one waiting to be painted but vehicles fill me with dread so it is encouraging to see one well done like this.

Yes I will use the archon above as my Archon Yllithian Smile I have a haemonculus to use as Bellathonis just my army list just doesnt make him fit for my army on the table, not yet anyways!

The edge highlighting isnt too bad on hard edges like railing and around lance turret, its the lines separating the armor plates that i cant use a large flat brush on that drive me nuts...sometimes my hand is steadier than normal, sometimes not...short lines like the warriors armor is easier to get a consistent straight line. And the vehicles arent daunting to me as well so I keep them apart in pieces and paint them all separate, then glue them together once they are done. all the crew, the said, the "mast" that said attaches to, turret all were done separately

Yeah that is a good idea to separate them. I think I will take a knife to mine and paint the bits separately. You get a sense of achievement i suppose when each little bit is finished and the pain is spread out a bit Wink
