I'll quickly sum up my opinion on all those images for you, Cav: magnificence :). I love the sorceress / farseer and she might be my favorite. It blows  my mind how you've done the skin on her!

Cool stuff; they all look great, but those reapers are my favourite.

Wow awesome stuff Cavalier.

Comparing some of your previous posts to this one either your photography has changed, or the way you paint gold as changed. In this latest post your gold is out of this world and it seems to be glowing/luminescent. Whatever the reason it looks fantastic.

wow, sooo many nice things, I love the small deepkin helmets on the spears, and man white, just looks great.

Yvraine on the WK scatter shield is a cleaver use of odd base size.

The heavy weapon Corsair with the surge head look sick.

I know I'm weird but I really love the detail on the warp hunters, having the power in the vanes around the big oval is a super nice bit of detail.

@Dread- Thanks so much my friend. I missed chatting too. So glad you are enjoy the Drukhari man. I went through so MAJOR bad times with the death of Corsairs and my Drukhari saved my butt big time. Thanks on the Spears man I’ll get some glamor shots up soon. Yeah if you ever get a chance flip through the Harlequin 7th ed. book there are tons of great sample paint schemes. I like the quartered themes myself. But anyway glad to be back man and thanks for the kind words.

@Myen’Tal- Thanks so much man it really means a lot. Yeah I’ve got a super easy way of doing skin… I bought empty paint pots and mixed a 1:3 ratio of Reikland Fleshwash and Lahmian medium and I put it right over the primer and just do a bit of touch up and highlight with Pallid Wych flesh. Thanks man I appreciate the kind words and thanks for keeping the hobby torch burning bright here on the forum!

@Nutty- Thanks man, glad you like them. I’ve got more added to the mix and a couple more to paint but I’m happy with them too!

@Alienscar- Thanks so much buddy. Yeah I actually do have a new camera and studio lights so the photos aren’t so dingy anymore. Also I have changed the way I do gold just slightly. I’ve been using the Retributor Gold as always, but I highlight it with Model Color Gold from Vallejo and it works really well to make the gold even brighter! Thanks so much bud.

@Magenb- Thanks so much man I really appreciate the kind words, especially on those Warp Hunters. I really pushed myself super hard to make them look as a good as I can because they are my favorite vehicles in the Asuryani line. I really want to get a 3rd one soon! But thanks man!

@Everybody- As per Myen’Tal’s request here as some highlights of the Daughters of Khaine project. I actually added some DoK models to my own collection too as counts-as Grotesques for Drukhari… which I’ll explain in a future post. But here you go!













What was cool was the client basically wanted me to replicate what I had already done on the Moratahi I painted for FLG awhile back (which you can see on the FLG homepage banner) but I darkened up the scheme a bit using the BRILLIANT Gal Vorbak red which if given a chance to do it all again, would be the base color for my Eldar. But really happy with how the project came out. Shipping out the final bits today!

Anyway thanks for stopping by guys and I'll have updates soon. I'm in the process of moving (I just packed up all my models yesterday) on to an awesome new house with an awesome workshop I'll show you guys soon. Stay tuned!

As always, your work with red is excellent.  The shading is spot on and the depth and quality of the colour is outstanding.  This is fantastic painting.

Absolutely grand work, Cav, I'm in love with those Daughters of Khaine (a dangerous prospect, I know lol)!

Holy beep! So jealous, the DoK are sweet as hell. Mine are still half finished and look like crap. I'm going to get my spears done then back to my sisters. I got going great guns on them and then life happened.

That scheme is extra striking in combination with that pale skin. You've got a really good looking army there.

@Myen'Tal- Thanks man. Yeah I love these girls. I've got a couple of Melusai as counts-as Grotesques for my Drukhari. After reading the DoK book (I read all the lore cover to cover in a single sitting) the whole bit about Morathi rescuining Elven souls from Slaanesh inspired me do something similar... in that Ynnead rescued Eldar souls from Slaanesh and the result was the same. I think it fits in with my slightly fantasy-tinged Aeldari collection. EDIT: Its actually kinda weird as the Melusai actually have the Ynnead rune on their armor



@Nutty- Thanks man. Yeah I've gone down the path of doing that quiet a bit and really like how it looks. I did the same thing on my counts-as Y'vraine.



@Dread- Thanks so much buddy glad you dig them!

@Irisado- Thanks so much Irisado, always appreciate you stopping by and super glad you like my new stuff it always means a lot.





@Everybody- So I probably wont get a chance to paint anything till next Friday or so, as all my painting gear is packed up for my big move, but I did want to share what I was working on. I'm doing a painting challenge I call the "Core in 4" challenge with the patreons for my podcast (but open to everybody to participate in) where we are painting up a new core of units for a new list we want to try running in 4 months. It doesnt matter if its half-painted models or new on sprue. For myself its adding 3x Fire Prisms to my Asuryani and 3x Ravagers to my Drukhari (although I may swap out 2 Ravagers for a Razorwing and a Voidraven). So I've got the first Prism done and these are the two newest entries. Hopefully I'll get them done in the next 2 weeks! However after this challenge is over, I'm moving on to Harlequins and putting a very few minor additions to my World Eaters army and that should take me through summer. I'm so excited to start a proper Harlequins army. I've had tremendous success with just a small patrol of them and cant wait to see what more of them can do. Wont get a chance to paint until at least the 28th, but wanted to share what I've been working. Talk to you guys soon!
