Another batch of models are done!! Yay!!
(Be sure to click the pictures, they’re friggin’ huge!)
There’s a unit of Nyss Hunters here, converted using bits from Games-Workshop’s Wood Elves models. The conversion work was done by good buddy, @cutthroatcure. The only work I did on them was swap out all the swords for Nyss Hunter blades, and paint. The client wanted them to be inspired by the White Walkers from Game of Thrones, so they were done in muted blues with a slightly warm final highlight. We also kept them very simple, they’re 70% airbrush work.
On this side, we have the Dragoon solo, Skeryth Issyan and the dismounted version. I personally love shields, so I had a blast painting the shield here and calling out the emblems on it and the horse. There’s also a unit of Spears of Scyrah, led by Eyriss3. These girls were done in a largely greyscale scheme – something fun and different for Mage Hunters in this army. Lastly, Elara1 with her neon pink hair leads her new Harpy in to battle. (I think that one’s the Harpy… I don’t know what they are or what they do, I just make them look good.)
Aaaaand over here, we have the big boss himself, Vyros! His bird is painted like a peregrine falcon, black/blue on top and a creamy brown underneath. He’s flanked by some jacks – a Siren and a Banshee. They’re orange. What else do you want from me?
Up next is something completely different. Stay tuned!
The dust swirls around the long forgotten ruins, aloft on eddies of warm air stirred by the sun’s harsh rays. The distant sound of hundreds of feet marching on the packed dirt floor reverberates down the stone canyon, easily mistaken for far off thunder. Side-by-side in immaculate formation, columns of Exalted Immortals walk in lock-step. Each cohort is accompanied by an Extoller Advocate, a watchful shepherd of the ancient souls inhabiting the stone and metal bodies of the sleepless soldiers. Led by Zaal, the Ancestral Advocate, his Obsidian Staff alight with magical essence and purpose, the Immortal War Host of the Exalted marches tirelessly to battle…
If you’re a follower on social media (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram), this will be old news but there are two big updates to the Sunset Retribution forces.
First, in November, I painted Hemera. This is the last character jack to be completed for the army, and was done in a scheme similar to Imperatus.
During the month of August, I set commission work aside and worked on an entry for the Capital Palette (Nova Open’s painting competition), and Mayacast’s Q3 Masterglass competiton.
The model I chose was the Panoceania Father Knight model from Infinity’s Operation: Icestorm set.
Day 3 was another long class with Roman – Building a Display Base. It was the only seminar I had all day and it started at 10am, so I went and worked out in the morning before grabbing some breakfast and finally getting to the hotel for the class.
Roman started us off with a discussion on this piece, Frog X-ing.
