Thank you so much for sharing!! Wow, wow, wow! Not only is the painting excellent, but the models are overflowing with character. Agatha in particular is a unique model, but I have to commend the three haemonculite sisters for having so much personality it hurts!

Something about Belfrit's expression suggests she's got more ambition than she might let on in front of her "barking" mad archon...! Hah! But in all seriousness, it's all very impressive. Definitely inspiring me to get to my brush, sure I won't be alone in thinking that.

First time I've seen a hex logo on a vehicule as well, there's so much Prophets of Flesh going round. Is this an ongoing project, and can we expect to see more?

Their personalities do involve a lot of hurting.

Actually Belfrit is the Archon Smile

Sure. I have so many miniatures waiting to be painted that I despair!

Whiteface and Rednose are actually two special characters from my fan codex:

Stunning work Agatha, thank you very much for sharing. You should also add them into the Aphotic Gallery.

It's not just your painting that impresses me, however. There is the expressions such as Whiteface and Rdenose's, and especially Belfrit's. And there is the differentiation between units with colours, markings and (excellent) names.

Possibly the best army as a whole that I have seen so far.

Cheers.

Great work overall, but I spot an inconsistency that you should fix. The banner quality of the purple warrior squad looks very different than the rest of your work, the flying stands(tape the stem to leave it clear) could use basing to prop up the models as well.

I really like your conversions on the characters and the grotesques, keep it up!

Good heavens, how have I missed these? This army looks absolutely splendid! I really like the colourful style, and the characters manage to stand out even among all that! There's something about your lady Belfrit that just... oozes power, despite me being able to tell every single bit in the conversion - somehow you've created something way more impressive!

Can't wait to see more!

These girls are unreal! Love the way of marking out the units with hair colour, it's super noticeable but no kind of distraction from the rest of the models.
Everything's just so coherent! Ugh. Brush crush.

I cannot believe I've missed this. This is all very well painted and gorgeous! I'm full of envy now!

Great minds think alike... I have exactly the same color scheme, I realized this now that I stumbled upon this thread... I have the same idea about having one Cult and one kabal, sharing the same color scheme. The Cult being female only, the kabal even on both gender... I'm very in love with this mighty house, great job!

Also, moved this to project logs

Your models are great, very nicely painted. I really dig your Hameculi Coven and the way you did their vehicles with the spiderweb designs.

I hear and obey!




To give you an idea of how badly I screwed up that banner, it was supposed to be a cat. Smile

I like the scourges. Do you think we could get a close up on one of them?

Those Scourges are fantastic! I envy people with such a great mastery of purples, and the wings are amazing as well. Great job!

The colour transitions on the Scourges' wings and helmets around the eyes are just brilliant!
*drools*
Only advice: Maybe more pictures of them?
(I'd shamelessly flaunt them lol)

Edit: *post the message, realizes there's a second page, facepalms*
... It still apllies though. The more the merrier.
