At long last, I have taken great strides to paint my first model in three years! All comments and critique is welcome, just be gentle ;). I will say that I did buy the Soul Wars box set and that kind of delayed me in getting started on painting, as I wanted to prime the Stormcast and Idoneth in one go with some black primer. Also please note that the coastal base is not yet finished. Still have to apply the realistic water effects!

EDITED!: Thank you, SeekingOne!

I'm using Imgur all the time - it's the only resource that works well for me. But I use it from PC - its smartphone app does something silly with uploading images.

Thing is, you don't want to make "Posts" in Imgur. Instead, in your profile you have to go to the "Images" page that looks like this:


If it's empty, you click "Add Images" and upload an image. Then you click on an added image and get the following screen:

You click on the blue button "Copy" beside the field labelled "BBCode (message boards and forums)" (the one that I highlighted with a red box) - it will copy a BBcode that you then simply paste into you forum post, and that's it.

I fight against Chaos and for Order, because it means fighting for Life against Death. There is no other battle truly worth fighting.

great job on the reaver,  nice balance of colours, and the water should look fantastic with a coat of water effects.

Buddy is looking great! The Deepkin line is absolutely gorgeous and your scheme does them well.

That's not blatant, this is blatant: I'm super happy that I'm playing Austria, the greatest nation in all of Diplomacy!

Thanks guys, that means a lot ;D! I think I need a little more patience when applying thin layers onto the model when it doesn't cover well. You can kind of see on the skin that a little bit of the detail got lost. So I'm going to be a bit more careful on the other models.

Being patient with thin layers/bad coverage of paint is probably the hardest thing to do imho. I'm forever regretting moments when the first layer doesn't go on as I'd like and then I'm like 'maybe I'll just do a slightly thicker coat....why God...whhhyyyyyy??!!!!'

As it is, I think you've done a good job. The palette that you've chosen is excellent. The vibrancy of the pink especially draws the eye in well. Everything else being muted acts as a perfect counterpoint.

Really nice start Myen'Tal....now, where did I put my Reavers...

Thanks for the compliments, Loosh, and thanks for the advice too, I'll have to use some extra temperance to let the paint dry ;D. I admit, I still really love the Fuethan color scheme, but I agree that there is a subtle dark beauty to the Mor'Phann that I too find really cool.
