    Hi guys, first time poster, but thought I'd join up and share what I am doing!

    Here is my WIP shots of my first Morghast!

    My general plan is to roll with a lot of constructs and the newer undead models. I hate Zombies, so it's Wights and big bad stuff!

    @Malicht Hi there! You've done a really nice job painting up that wight king and Morghast so far. I used to be only into the skeletal stuff and never really took much to vampires, ghouls & zombies (all the fleshy stuff) but have grown to love (and buy loads) over the last several years.

    It's still a bit strange seeing undead on round bases. Keep up the good work.

    Brilliant painting Malicht! I was envious when I saw the Wight King, then I saw the Morghast... I especially love the posing of the halberd and the detail on the spirit's face. Also that colour scheme matches my stuff perfectly, I'll be taking notes!

    Thanks for the kind words peeps!

    My bone is done this way:

    Rakarth flesh > Ushabti bone > Aggrax earthsahde over the lot > Pic out the details in Ushabti, then highlight in Bleached bone > White highlight. Thats it! You can also use Aggrax to pick out certain areas to darken it. I used Lahmian medium and Aggrax as a glaze too, just to pull it all together! :D

    Hope it helps!

    Thank you for the recipe, when do you apply the glaze?

    After the final highlight. Basically when I am happy with the highlighting and feel I just want to pull it together a little more to take the edge of the highlights! :D

    @Malicht You paint your bone in a similar way to me, with a few added stages. I'll bare that in mind for larger models I do.

    Which blue colours did you use on your blue ethereals? I've been playing with a few schemes but haven't found one that I'm satisfied with yet.

    I base them with celestra grey, then I "wash" them with Nihilak Oxide. Once that's dried completely I then highlight it with ulthuan grey. It's pretty simple but I think it looks okay!

    Thanks man, and as above, I base them with celestra grey, then I "wash" them with Nihilak Oxide. Once that's dried completely I then highlight it with ulthuan grey. It's pretty simple but I think it looks okay!

    Hoping to get some more painting down on Monday and Tuesday, I will hopefully have more to share then! :D

    I love the colour of the bone on that wight king, it really looks like those bones are old and ancient. Also awesome work on the spirit coming out the back of that morghast it really makes the mini pop, I can't wait to see what you do next.

    Thanks man! Hopefully an update on the Morghast tomorrow. Should have him finished. I am hoping to have a small force ready to play games asap. So the paintwork will be a little rushed. Does mean I can focus a little more on the characters though!

    Okay, first Morghast done.

    I have had to rush this slightly for two reasons:

    1) I want to get a painted Age of Sigmar force done as quickly as possible.

    2) I have a bajillion things I need to get painted.

    I am still getting used to my new camera too, and I should really start using my lightbox again for better quality pictures.

    Anyway, here he is!
