Rhyas’ (and Saeryn’s) character warbeast is looking O.M.G.Amazing!
My Rhyascan’t wait to get her homeboy! I’m also super excited if you couldn’t tell. I went nuts when they announced that her character warbeast was going to be a Nephilim, as my Soldier is not only the first legion model I ever painted, but still one of my favorites. The fact that it does so much work in my Rearguard army makes it even better!
Sorry it’s been awhile since I last updated the site, but as you could have guessed from the last post: I’ve been suffering from a case of burn out coupled with a few other relatively mundane reasons that have cut into my hobby time and motivation.
I intend on starting to update this site again in the next few weeks as things for me settle back down.
Just wanted to share the work I was able to do on the Nephilim Soldier last night. He’s pretty much done at the moment and I’m very happy with the result. In fact, it’s emboldened me to push on. This is 5 points down, 45 to go!
Still undecided on what to do as far as basing though. I did have an idea when I remembered that my mom has one of these hanging up in her house. I was going to swing by on the weekend anyway, but now I think I’ll also try and get a mold of it made with some insta-mold and then make a cast that I’ll smash to chunks. Thoughts?
Also, I have some pics of the Scythean I started on. The first week of the Slow Grow/Journeyman (never know which is the right one to call it) culminates in a 15pt Highlander event, which means I need one of every model type. I have the Nephilim Soldier as my light, the Scythean as my heavy warbeast (as the other in the list is Typhon and I don’t think characters are permitted), Swordsmen or warmongers (probably Warmongers) as my unit, and either a Shepard or a War chief (probably the War Chief) as my solo. Rhyas as my warlock of course.
I believe it actually starts on July 8th or so, but I found out (or probably forgot) that anything painted since January counts for this year’s Journeyman League. Not sure if that means all that I’ve painted, or just what I’d doing for the Journeyman…either way, it’s time to break back out the Legion of Everblight!!
This weekend I worked a bit on some of my Circle stuff. This is more of a pet (eh? eh?) project for me, so I’m not rushing through it and I’m being very particular of my work (more so than usual).
I wanted to share with you all a quick WIP shot of the Pureblood Warpwolf and get your feedback on it. I’m not sure I 100% like how it came out. My process was to coat the whole thing in a regal-ish blue, then highlight with P3 Frostbite, then finally with P3 Morrow White. I was trying to give him a ghostly, icy feel, but I think I over did it on the white. I also think I should have maybe done a layer in between the blue and frostbite.
What are your thoughts?
I also worked on some bases for them using a basing kit I recently picked up and will review from Secret Weapon, here’s a sneak peek:
