A few things will change, like the furr bits that cover their privates... They still need highlighting, but the skintone is mostly done. The highlights are pretty near pure white for the final stages anyway...

Got another update of stuff I'm working on for this army:

I already mentioned that this army is designed mainly for Armies on parade next year. So I'll need to design a board to go with it. Now I'm spoiled for time on this project, so I decided to make it scratch build.

It will feature quite a few pieces of the GW premade fantasy terrain, most noticably the garden of Morr kit. I just love the look of all the fantasy buildings, and I'm particularly fond of the big slabs of slate used in their architecture.

So I'll be connecting most of the buildings, mausoleums, fences, etc... using my own tiles made out of plasticard. It'll take a while, but like I said, loads of time for this project.

Here's a few shots of what I mean:



This will be the central entrance to the castle/graveyard that the ghoulkin has taken refuge in. I plan to connect all the pieces with the white bits. They are ground down pieces of plasticard (using my dremel and sanding paper) to recreate the slate pavement used in many of the WHFB terrain kits.

A close-up:



And finally a WIP shot of the statue of the Garden of Morr:





Cu next time!

I would try to dull down the statue some, not really making it rusty, but not so bright. If it's a grave yard taken by the undead I couldn't see such a bright statue in the middle. I'd also try to square off the tiles you make a bit more to they match a little better. The ones on both pieces of terrain you have look like they have sharper corners, it would help the flow a lot.

Other than that it looks like a brilliant start, it made me think of a scene from Diablo at first. I can't wait to see the finished board.

Some small update on the scenery and a layout plan for the board that is in the make:



the base of it still needs doing, it'll be integrated on the board with some polyfilla, so it'll be messy! No point in doing too much detailing on the bottom now...



You'll notice I carefully dremeled out the tombstone in the bottom right corner of the statue. That tombstone is going to find itself on the corner of one of the unitbases, so it integrates fully into the gaming board.



And finally, using my ultraleet MSpaint skills, I make this little layout plan for the future of this project. The 2 mausoleums from the guarden of Morr will be integrated on a base wich will have the terrorgheist looming over it.

The courtyard will have a unit of 30 cryptghouls in it, climbing over some tombstones. The tombstones used will be dremeled out of the bases of the garden of Morr scenery. So far, this is going quite well...

The idea is to place all the units inside 3mm thick foamboard that will cover the surface of the tripple layer board. Bases will be placed "in the scenery" to be less obvious. The wall sections will be covered in plasticard and will have similar stone structure sculpted on them (to mesh in with the garden of Morr kit).

Hope you like it.

Update of some more WIPs:

I started this centrepiece for the army:



And a shot of the legs and one wing assembled, posing with his crypt horror buddies...



And here are some WIP shots of the ramp I was doing to connect the lower tier with the higher tier of the presentation table. It's almost finished now, but the paint is still drying, so pictures will be added very soon.

And yet more WIP of the board itself. The ramp is finished in these shots and I started work on the coverplate that is made of 3mm thick foamboard. This allows me to fit in the bases so the surfaces sit nice and flush...



And how it looks on the actual displayboard:





And a little preview of how the terrorgheist will look when mounted on the base.



The left wing will be completely upright in this pose and looks quite impressice (height wise). I'm quite happy with how it's turning out. Both feet are solidly on the buildings this way, and the right wing is clamping onto that little "tower" quite nicely this way!

It's a mix of UHU type universal glue (the stringy stuff) with some red ink and some scorched brown or sepia ink in it. It's then applied with a toothpick and the bloodstrings are drawn with it.
