Blood Witches

It took me forever to paint these lovely ladies.  I started the basecoat on them last Fall, and though I've played with them a lot, I've only put a concerted effort into finishing them this past month.  Pathetic!

I must say, I love these models.  A couple of the poses are on par with many faction's caster models, and all of them are festooned in detail - which is one of the reasons it took me so long to get around to finishing them.

Though the color scheme is fairly similar to the studio scheme, its actually just adding red to my already purple-heavy army scheme. I left the eyes white because they're often depicted that way and I was just a teensy bit lazy.

Here's the awesome Blood Hag UA and one of the better single posed unit members:

The Wraith Engine Project

I've professed many times that Legion of Everblight range is one of the finest fantasy miniature lines available, but Cryx is right up there too.  As evidence, I present the Cryx Battle Engine:  The Wraith Engine!

I have multiple comission jobs running right now, but I've had this model sitting in the box for a couple months and couldn't resist putting it together.  Its so cool and evil, that it begs for paint as well as your soul.  Here it is on its hand-crafted cemetary base, but only partially complete.  The complexity of the model warrants a multi-stage painting approach.  I'll be priming and painting the side panels (which attach to the two peg holes above the head)seperately in order to catch all the detail that will be partially obscured once they're glued in place.
