Hey man, I like how these guys are turning out. At first I was a little skeptical, but thanks to the rank going on here, they really do look menacing! Great work on capturing the essence of the Warriors! Even I felt awestruck when I was looking at them! Well done!

Good stuff Wraith. Skin has turned out well on the warrior too. I think a tribal, Mike Tyson tattoo could work well if you can pull it off, or indeed stubble as long as you don't do both. It seems a shame he's not bearded as that'd really suit the men of the North look I think they're taking on.

Got turned aside with some touch ups on my Tsons but I am back to this now. Going to finish off the snow bases for the warriors (and the tattoo on the bare headed dude) after I post this and then..... Mounted Exalted Hero! Got the model basecoated already and I will begin painting it up today and I am going to -try- to do a metallics tutorial with him at the same time. I said try though as I am really now sure how well my metallics method will translate into a tutorial simply because of how I do them. Stay tuned.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Looking great and give us a tutorial on the metals.

Did you mean for the cloaks to have a shiney/wet look?

Djinn: the cloaks look like that from heavy wash use unfortunately. Good thing is that the wet effect is gone for the most part now that I have sprayed the models with Dullcote.

Update to the log: new pics of the wip Exalted Hero. The three pics are all of the same model obviously, each one showing the next stage in the painting process (working on that tut Djinn ).



Basecoat starts out black and then straight dark brown is painted on the entire horse. The first pic is after the first layer is done with a mix of dark brown and Graveyard Earth.



Second pic shows the next layer with straight Graveyard Earth used for highlights. All the paints are put on very lightly and built up so each layer is roughly....5 passes to get to how I want it. Looking at the second pic you can see that the model is way brighter than the horses the Knights were on and that is where my latest painting efforts have led me. I now paint brighter and then use the washes to build DOWN to the colour I want instead of the traditional layering up.



The final pic is the horse after it has been washed fully. I took some pics of the in between stages of the washes but they don't really show up that well on camera, not enough to show the difference between stages. For me the washes are done in several layers, more so than the paint even. The results you see in the third pic were reached by several light, watery coats of Gryphonne Sepia (by light I mean at least 60% water) followed by the same using Devlan Mud. As I go through this and in the tutorial that will come about with this model, you will see that I use these two washes heavily on just about everything on the model as this is what helps keep the monotone, unified look. Thats it for now I think, more painting to do

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Really nice Wraith, this is going to be a fantastic army when it is done. I look forward to your tut you are making as well!

Absolutely loving that Daemonic Steed - it truely is second to the Big Man, and even then, Dorghar could take some Beauty tips...
