After about seven months of off and on work, I think my Ogres are finally done.

Am strongly considering adding a couple of Gargants down the line.

The blue bases are an unusual but very cool choice. Those look like fun to paint - Los of personality.

I’m working on the Warscryer Citadel at last. Needed a break from Nurgle and Gaslands. It is not a great model- like a lot of GW’s older scenery kits it has weird shifts in texture and it doesn’t fit together all that well. It looks pretty neat overall, but it is definitely an “arm’s length” model.

PSA: Waystone Green is such a magical paint I’m thinking of rubbing it into my eyes to see if I become a less mediocre person, because what it’s done to a mediocre paint job has made me a less unhappy person.

I’m telling you, I owe it all to the way Waystone Green and Nihilakh Oxide interact. I could have practically blindfolded myself and got a pretty good result.

I started on my Nighthaunts...I’m using the new paints. I tried the “battle ready” style that Peachy has in his video, but I thought it didn’t look good- he was doing Hexwraith Flame I’ve over the whole thing and then Nighthaunt Gloom over the cloaks. They looked sort of one dimensional. So I decided to do the cloaks black, and now thy have more of that “Haunted Mansion” look I wanted. I really don’t like painting black because I have trouble highlighting it, but so far the four I’ve done look decent.

I like the models (Chainrasps)...but they have this kind of inconsistency that GW models sometimes have. They kind of don’t make sense. Double fabric areas, a bone face, spectral arms...it’s sort of a mishmash. If you do the skull bone color, then why are the arms spectral? But if you do the arms bone, it’s weird because they aren’t skeletal. I get that the effect is supposed to be that they are sort of between ethereal and corporeal...but it’s sort of awkward.

I did Keldrek too...very easy and fun to paint.

The new paints are good- they are basically different colors of Nihilakh Oxide. Hexwraith Flame is CRAZY bright green, but dry brushing Ulthuan over it gives a good result- you have to go pretty steady/heavy over it. Nighthaunt Gloom is tricky- it’s really like a very liquid Thunderhawk Blue so it has a dusty gray hue- not really a “spectral” color. The guidance is to paint it over Ionrach Skin and highlight with Deepkin Flesh, but I’ve found it too dark. It’s probably better if you want a less Haunted Mansion look.

I’m really curious about the new paints, but am already deeply committed to the Oxide thing from my previous death models.

I found the Chainrasps a little vexing, too. Mostly, I worry that there’s not enough differentiation between them and other Nighthaunt models on the table. In the end, I’ve decided to just let them be caspery ghost-type ghosts. They fit in with the official Myrnmourn look this way.

Watched Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans and quickly fell in love with the grunt suit.





Very impressive kit also. It had inner frame, which usually HG 1/144 kits don't. Not many accessories (just the axe and rifle), but extremely cheap kit. I recommend this to anyone wanting to try gunpla.

We have a few of those Graze dudes, they are really cool. I think the dark green one (female pilot) is the best one.

Painting ghosts is fun.
