Shadespire has a really low model count. Only 8 models in total and boy are those models great. Each one has the detail and dynamic pose of a character level model. For that reason, I took my time with the Bloodbound and I love the results. Undeniably Khorne worshippers with their Bronze and Red armour. Their ruddy skin complexion really helps sell their angry demeanour. Individual close ups and a recent Warhammer Store experience after the jump. 

I realized I haven't posted a follow-up for my Ultramarines Company Command Squad yet. I put them on hold so I could start my Sepulchral Guard, but not before completing the two models in the front (well, apart from static grass and transfers). How do you like them?

Now back to painting Sepulchral Guard...

Hey guys, Big Sam from United Painting here again. This guy was a pretty fun model to paint. I really enjoyed painting the woad markings in his face, and in general painting the face was a blast as it was ripped from a Chaos Marauder Horsemen kit.

Looked perfect for my idea of what a lone wolf would probably look like. I tried to pose him as if he was counter attacking and smashing a skull with his hammer. I really tried to keep it simple and also clean with the paint job minus the battle damage.

Do you remember my post about selling my Anti-spill paint pot holders? Well I've expanded my range with these fun, hobby orientated tea coasters. Immortalising the words of the talented Mr Rhodes these coasters/beer mats are a tribute to the Lord of Layers Duncan. I've actually posted the very first one off the print bed to Duncan as a gift, I hope he likes it. More colours after the jump.

On Tale of Painters we are in a Shadespire frenzy! Like Banzai1000, I picked up the Sepulchral Guard set. I really loved the former Vampire Counts range, especially the Skeletons (now known as Deathrattle), and I was pleased to see that their aesthetic didn't change in the Age of Sigmar. So far, I've painted a test model (sorry, it's a bit out of focus but you get the idea) and will now proceed painting the remaining six models in two batches. I went for rich purple and black as spot colours. How do you like my scheme? And how are your warbands coming along?

Wow it's been a while! The last time I posted about painting was on the 24th of September and I still haven't finished that Primaris Ancient! I have bought the excellent Shadespire core set and dived straight in and started painting the vicious Blood Bound warband. I'm hoping to get these finished soon and either go back to the Primaris Ancient or start painting the Shadespire Stormcast warband. What do you think I should work on next?
