Finally, after a year of sulking I repainted the ugly blend of shadow grey, blue and dark angel green that I cooked up on this guy. I think Dark grey works much better here and I only wish I would have any idea how to paint such large and detailed horns.



This concludes the scarlet watch and old Templar models. It was a blast painting them, I couldn't contribute more than for the rulebook to the kickstarter so I will be waiting for rest of the orcs to be added to the online shop.

Finally exams are over and I am free to pursue painting Norsgard and hopefully playing it when most of it will be painted. I would post some models sooner but all of the bits went missing and the amount of cleaning I had to do find them took literrary a whole week so lets start from the starter box.

Our beutiful veil banshee being painted on in one crazy night among friends, she looks a bit off and will probably stay this way. Overall a great model  with a well made cloak that suits her much better than Varkof's. Unfortunatly I am still experimenting with doing sexy skin but  it always backfires into 3rd degree burns which is especially painful when it comes to Norsgard warrior women. There is only one notable flaw that the sculpt has in my opinion: namely no ABS. While arms do have some small biceps that are hard to flesh out unfortunatly, I was really hungry for some solid, well formed abdoment. I think the new commander that PaweĊ‚ previewed will satisfy my lust for female muscles in my toy solider collection.




And yes the horde is finally assembled. Only 6 more horde models to go.

Ok this one was a huge supprise. I was so excited to paint Nifl Guard and crimson champion that I totally disregarded him and his little hoody. The scout is a superb model with a lot of details and probably one of the best faces He might become my best looking model if I don't come up with an amazing paint scheme for the Ravyn Skaler.

Pros:
+Excellent wavy robe
+Small and light equipment shows off orc's massive stature
+Lots of acessories on the belt
+great shoes
+fantastic face

Cons
- Sword a bit on the short side compared to crimson champions one-handed weapon





I'm planning to start fighting on Isbranian soil in two weeks so there is a lot of painting to be done

I finally made a huge leap in my skin technique using a newly learned wet pallet  for mixing paints during long periods of time. Im very happy with the result although the hair which used a NMM gold technique should have been stopped after applying the second layer, Sepia ink and 5th layer of heavy gold destroyed the softnes and now the hair looks like a tangled mess with a lot of contrast. Overall it could've been better but I'm still proud of my twin lionesses as opposed to the skin burned veil banshee prototype. Soon I will finish my  Mistress of the hunt and return to the Ravyn Skaller for the time of battle is close at hand.

My latest orc. The Ravn Skaller, was an interesting model. He had lots of jewlery compared to his comrades and an animal companion. I choose to make him more of a fashionista with the Scarlet watch or maybe a collector of anything shiny.
