Denizens of the Depths

As an excuse for the following, I would like to state that all of the following models were painted over a two-day period and that I do intend to go back and do touch-ups. I like the conversions, the paintjobs sadly show their rushed nature in my opinion. Miles better than playing a game with unpainted figures however, so swings and roundabouts.

I’ll begin with the paintjob I hate the most, in the hopes it will make the other miniatures look better in comparison.

Seen here in unflattering close-up.

Really, just didn’t work. He’ll probably end up being stripped.

The Heroes!

I changed the elves into women because of new quota requirements in the mortal realms. Or because having the party be all male is dull. One of the two.

From left to right: Archimaine the Gryph-Hound, the Lord-Castellant, the Cogsmith, the Loremaster and the Fleetmistress.

Strangely, the models I’m most happy with are the ‘stock’ henchmen. Maybe it’s because they look better en masse?

Some pallid acolytes.

Slightly less pallid warriors.

Okay, I lied. My favourite models are the Blight Kings, just because I love them as is. With some minor conversion work, I love them even more.

Big rusty fat blokes.

I had some fun with stippled rust and gore effects on these. They’re just so much fun to paint, even when rushing. Favourite model out of the lot has to go to the champion in the centre, with his great pose and awesome horned helmet.

    1. Thanks! I’ve never painted so many models so quickly.
      I like the Fleetmistress too, the Coven Throne heads are probably the best GW female heads. Shame you have to buy a very expensive kit just to get three of them.
