Such a cornucopia of color! They, the colors, play well together. Rich and solid. I want to see a full army pic sometime.

Thanks, Dread ;D! I appreciate the compliment. The robes were originally supposed to be a darkened shade of pink, but I decided to try something different. Didn't really like the pink in the scheme too much so didn't want to apply it across the entire army.

Those three models are the only finished stormcast that I have so far. But I'm working on several more at the moment. Good thing about Stormcast is that you don't have to paint a ton of models to make significant progress in painting their army.

Hopefully I'll have more pics soon!

Like Dread said, absolutely amazing work Myen’Tal!  I love the choice of colours you used on those, and excellent paint job to boot!  I look forward to seeing more!  :D

Thanks Calamity, I've actually gone back and looked at the photos and decided that I could clean some of those models up a little bit! Some of the highlights are pretty chunky and be thinned down a little. Also there's some slight mistakes on the armor too. I appreciate your compliment on them!

So, update: I have hereby sold my Tau Empire and Gloomspite Gitz collections! Myen'Tal, are you mad!? I here you say, but I think that this is for the best. Lately, I've been kind of rolling on the Age of Sigmar bandwagon a little too much and want to dial it back a bit, for now! I have two AoS armies that need completing already, and plus, I have a third ambition for warhammer.

I've decided to sell my T'au Force, because I realized that I wanted to purchase this new Shadowspear Box Set that should be coming out soon. I was tempted by Genestealer Cult, but ultimately, they're not a faction for me. I don't want to be juggling too many armies right now, so I've sold off both armies and in return, will be able to start a new collection by buying two of the Shadowspear Boxes.

Not certain if I'll keep both sides of the box, but if I do, I'm only going to be focused on one for the near future. Plus, marines, chaos and Primaris alike, probably don't have as many models to paint like my Tau list would have required :P.

So, for right now, I'm just going to keep pressing on with my Stormcast and Deepkin.

Stay tuned for more!

Well bummer on the Grots but I understand. I used to have more armies myself but I saw more shineys, or bills, and I regret some of them. But such is life. So now you gotta get cranking on the ones you do have. Looking forward to them!

Shame to hear that you've decided to move on from the Gobbos Myen'Tal, but if you can't devote the time and energy, it's never worth it to hang onto them.

As for the Stormcast, I think they look good. As you say, a few of the highlights are too thick, but the colour scheme is striking and I think they'll look good once you finish a few more of them.

Keep it up bud!

I’m sorry about the Grots too, but I completely understand.  I’m considering doing the same for my Bloodbound.  They’ve never really floated my boat the way KO and GG do.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing what you do next! :)
