  • Hello folks! I am happy to say I have (finally) finished some of the models I have been painting for the Avras campaign! Got a character and 3 units all done at the same time so think its best to show it all off! Now there are some things moving forward that I may add/tweak to the models so I can't say they are 100% done and never to be touched again - especially as VC seem to be my next main tourney army I will be using (spoiler alert) quite soon in the future - but for the purposes of the campaign I can consider them complete.

    Anyway, let's get straight to it!

    Overview. The horde is begun...



    Sophia von Hesselink

    I quite the the colour scheme and how the pink has come out, although it's not as clean as i would have liked. I think this comes down to using my old paints rather than getting new ones, but also because i tried a lot of 'trial & error' colour combinations and techniques. First I tried out just making her dress white with a red wash to creat the pink, but that came out too similar to the red of her breastplate so took that off and tried to mix colours to create the shade i liked. Havent ever done mixing before so i'm pleased with the outcome, but becuase of all the messing around with the actual model i feel its not as smooth as i could have made it. Similarly, the face is the first time I have looked at getting proper details out of it and 'trusting' my painting skills on it. As a result it looks a bit blotchy and a bit 'cartoony' (as normally i would put faint colours in the areas i need detail and then do a wash to cover over the cracks) but its not terrible so i'll take it. The eyes were hard to do and ended up doing them several times before I was 'happy'. I imagine she will be constantly tampered with as I go on, but this is as good as it gets for now! Below is her with the rest of the von Hesselink crew...


    Ghouls

    Pleased with these because when i put them next to my other 20 ghouls they look pretty similar and can easily make 1 big block by mixing the two in. Used the same techniques but did a little more detail on these, and picked out the rope and metal more than the previous 20. The only thing I would do with these is add some detail to the mouths and give them a wash to darken them up - but i will need to look at the whole group to see how best to do that, so once again for now they are complete!

    Skellies

    Pleased with these and the only alteration/addition for these will be adding a wash to the bases. Otherwise I think they came out quite nicely and are near identical to the last ones I've done which will help when adding them to future armies!

    Vampire Spawn

    Will not likely change these at all now so this really is the finished article for these boys. I have some regrets as I believe I was a bit heavy on the white dry brushing but as is the trend it appears, they look like my previous 3 i had done and painted up so now make a nice looking unit!

    I will leave it there for now. Still to paint are 20 zombies and 5 barrow knights who are in the early stages so need a few more sessions before i can get anywhere near complete, but they will come in time! There is 3 months after-all before the campaign is complete so plenty of chances to get them involved at a later date. In my final stages for my last character fluff too so will be hoping to update you all early next week on the characters and the start of their journey back to Avras! Oh i'm so excited!
