It's really great work all round.  Even the bases are coming along so well.  You really have got the aesthetic for this army just right.

Impressive, especially the white. How did you paint that? Asking for a hundred-odd 28 mm tall friends in white trousers and cross belts. ;)

Wraithbone base, vampire fang from Duncan's Two Thin Coats layer, and corax white thinned with Lahmian medium, painted with minimal paint on a small brush and a very patient hand.

Not quite the painless answer I'd hoped for but I'll take it. Don't you just hate painting white too? :)

Nice job on the skitarii!

Thank you!

Honestly, corax white and lahmian medium make it much easier lol! And patience!

Current army for lumineth! I have an enlightener, calligrave, and Avelenor on the way.



Finished another Riverblade!









I took the Wardens out that I attempted to paint several months ago. Working on saving them and this is what I came up with so far:

High Warden!

These have come together very well.  The colours are spot on.  They have that really regal 'High Elf' look that takes me back to days of yore.

These look very nice indeed! I was thinking the same thing about them being reminiscent of High Elves.

Got a new set of terrain in for Age of Sigmar and Old World if I ever get to it.

Went ahead and also laid out all the terrain I have for Age of Sigmar currently.

They are wonderful.  It's particularly good work with the blue.  Have you highlighted it using white or is that a trick of the light?

Trick of the light, no highlights on the blue yet!

I hope to have more coming up soon!

Started work on an Avalenor, primed a little roughly - bought him off ebay. Here's where I got with him tonight.

Looking good.

I took my DoK against the luminith last night.. fun time. I tabled him but it was a hard won victory. My first time out for both of us with these armies.

The Avalenor is a very impressive model and you've certainly done it justice! It must be a fun break from painting the rank and file.

Thank you, Pax! It is, but there are so many rank and file left to paint - have to get back to it!

Got some more units touched up and based. I've 2 more riverblades remaining!

These are so impressive.  They have that rather curious combination of Greek and GW Fantasy style to them that works, kind of.  It certainly works with the paint job that you have chosen.

Thank you, I'm really enjoying how they're coming out!

Finally have a Caligraph painted up!

Once again very nicely done! I keep being amazed both by the paint jobs and the sculpts.
