Came upon a whole bunch of new models for my bloodhound army.

40 bloodreavers, 1 korgoroth, 10 blood Warriors, 1 of each character from the starter box and 5 wraithmongers.

Starting with the wraithmongers, as they are all stars in game. After that, 20 blood reavers and then the korgoroth.

Ordered the blades of khorne book, so depending on if I have the models to build any of the Battalions, I might change my painting order lol.

So excited to play more Age of Sigmar.

Looking deadly Killersquid. Those are some great looking models. I'm really looking forward to seeing you get some paint on these. I'm surprised to see basing on the model before paint. It's something that I've noticed Cavalier does as well. I'm always one to base after a paint job, as I get extremely frustrated when I get paint on my basing material.

Killersquid:
Niiiiice! Are their rules as mean as they look?

Dog of War:
I base first as well. Don't have to be as gentle with the dry brushing if not having to avoid a painted model.

I like top sand the model first, as my basing needs to be basecoated black, so might as well do that while priming the model too. I find the primer helps the sand stay on the base.

Yes, they are really cool in game. Give out +1 aura and force your opponent to attack themselves when they die. and they have 4 rend -1 attacks each and 3 wounds a pop.

Those are gonna be killer. I'm so glad to hear you like AOS so this 40k change should be good for you.

So, picked up the Talons of the Emperor Box, so starting on a new army.

What I have so far is

2 squads of Custodes
1 squad of sisters of silence
2 contemptor dreads
1 land raider
Rhino

Time to get building.

Here is what I have so far.



And, for fun, a size comparison of a Mk5 Marine, Primaris Marine, and an Adeptus Custodes. These guys are huge!

Nice. Definitely getting a nice little detachment of these dudes in the future.

How you gonna paint them? Retributor Primer? Its a slightly different shade then the pot. But you can literally do a 5 second dry brush and it'll blend perfect.

I can't get the primer, as it's not available for online shopping for me, so I'll need to paint them by hand. I am pretty much out of gold paints, so I will probably do the Retribtor/agrax/sigmartie/stormhost silver deal.

Ugh, such a shame that you can't get the spray. That'll be a lot of extra work...but the recipe you're using is superb for golds. These guys and gals should look superb.

Ooooo, shiny! Looking great KS. I'd love to see some step-by-step colour applications to see how they progress. Maybe just one shot with a model per step. Keep up the hard work.

Nice! You really banged that out considering its all brush work. My one recomendation... don't highlight with Stormhost Silver! Re-highlighting with Retributor after all the washes is usually all you need to do. Use a little Liberator if the model is screaming out for a proper highlight in a given area. Let the gold do its thing without the silver!

Thats just me though. I'm sure it'll come out great either way. Good luck KS can't wait to read some bat-reps too  ;D

Turns out these models have a lot of detail on them. Gonna take a while to get them finished.

Hmm, I do like silver highlights on gold though, but that's just me (as a spot colour more then anything else).

Here is the first dude I am working on (on the left)

Basecoat with two thinned coats of Retributor Gold, wash with Riekland Fleshshade, and then another layer of Alric Gold (on raised parts).

Gotta get me some Liberator gold for the next highlight (I forgot it as part of my order).

KS,

I must say you do a lot of excellent work on your models.   I am just wondering with the amount of paint and the detail you do on your models how long does it take you to paint say a typical 10 man squad to that level?

I have so many painting projects and even with taking a week off of work putting out a 10 man unit of anything would take me forever and doubtful i would get it done.

Just wondering how you have the time especially when you mentioned you work?

Great work on everything and I hope your painting motivates me to complete some of my own.
