Wow, Wraith, you are an amazing painter. I love the army so far, it looks fantastic :eek:k:. Looking forward to seeing the rest of it. Keep up the good work.

Just a small update. I have my 5 man mounted Marauder unit about halfway done now, in the same paint scheme obviously. Tried to take pics to post and my camera died. Once it charges, pics will be forthcoming.

Camera is back up. Here is a couple wip shots of my mounted Marauders.

Yeah they are. Adds to the completeness of the army in my mind.

Blimey, I haven't checked this project in months and yet you're still going and brilliant as always. If anything I'd say you've improved, certainly seems that way looking at your marauder horsemen, the horses particularly look spectacular. And as always, you're metallics are spot on :)

Sorry for the immensely long delay to this reply Az. When it comes to painting, I use fairly watery paints in general. This means a few more coats but not as many as you would think. What really smooths it out for me is that I make HEAVY use of GW's washes when I paint. In fact, the skin on the horses for example. That is quite literally 3 coats of paint that ends up significantly brighter than the end result followed by more than a few layers of washes. The way I paint, I build up my layers to a fairly bright level and then use washes in successive coats to darken the model down to where I want. Hell, even the metals are done in the same way with mithril silver being added to the main colour before I use washes to darken down to the look I want. It is nowhere near as hard as you might think and the thing to keep in mind with this army is that the paint scheme is quite simple and very easy and quick to achieve.

Here is the latest stage of the Marauders. They are finished now for the most part with just a few minor details to be picked out like earrings and such and the bases need doing. I intend to base the entire army at once which explains why they aren't finished yet.




Also, here is my sip Warshrine based on a Chaos chariot with the new Knights pulling it along. The new Knight models are SO much better than the old ones that it was a no brainer to use them as the steeds for the shrine. Not done yet is a pile of skulls that I want to add to the bed of the chariot itself to disguise the banner pole going through the base of the chariot and into the base itself for stability. Both riders also come off for storage purposes.

Very simple. White basecoat, Devlan Mud wash, Gryphonne Sepia wash.

First..., the army is coming along great! Having seen these on the table they are truly first rate tournament ready:eek:k: Looking at the war shrine again, however, I really like the work that you have done on this so far but I still think that the chariot needs something more to fill it in a bit. Not overboard mind you..., just a little something-something!?:victory:

Perhaps another warrior standing in the front before the banner?

Maybe. But it could end up looking like just a fancy chariot. Is there something else that could be put in there that would scream "I'm a war shrine"? (Perhaps the remains of sacrifices or some relic?) I don't know..., anybody else have some ideas?
