    Those look fairly spectacular dididoolandas, although the metal bits seem a bit bland. The basing looks great though, and the ethereal is good, but the metal seems to lack the same depth.

    They look lovely but the metal bits do look a bit of out place. Though I realize that if you change that then they might look bit...too green? but then again they are supposed to be all ghosty O_O

    Ah well, overall lovely!

    Yeah to be honest I'm not super into the paint job on these, just because I tried to go faster than usual and I don't think the drybrush/wash is smooth. That being said, the metal is actually my favorite part, because I layered it smoothly. xD But to each their own. Maybe if I do more of these guys I'll layer them thin and do more of a blend from green to metal?

    Like them too, I think I will change the metal parts of mine in that style too, the hexies look too much like my spirit hosts without the metal details. Nice work here :thumbsup:

    Wanted to take mine in a different direction. These are my representation of Hexwraiths riding their hellhounds, which burn with a cold blue fire.

    Ouh, well this is a great idea Drakhaol! Very nice, this brings out the hunting character of the hex wraiths very nice! Would like to see a group shot of your army soon!

    Thanks Theerteen, that was definitely part of the effect I was hoping for, and I've seen you've already found my army pics.

    As a side, and not that I recommend modeling for advantage, but by mounting my hexies on the direwolves they now receive hard cover from the vast majority of our core. The lower profile compliments the idea of a sleek hunter type model.

    Hexwraiths are perhaps the unit that pushed me into thinkin 'I wanna play Vampires' - so I was really looking forward to painting them. I was right too, they were bags of fun to paint and, at the risk of sounding immodest, turned out okay.

    Well, the caprissons leave me cold, but the wraiths themselves work.

    Great job, Minty! I would be interested in the way you painted the bones ;)

    People keep asking me how I do my bones. I mean, I take it as a compliment, but it's weird...

    It's just Bleached Bone and Devlan Mud. Is there some other way? I mean, it's not even highlighted or anything.

    Hehe.

    Here are my "Rime Wraiths", for my Army inspired by the Scourge from WoW. Hopefully one of these attachments will work :redface:

    Also copied Egg here, but hey - it's a damn good idea! Went with a white base, then washed in the new nihilakh oxide, then lightened back up with ulthuan gray & highlights in white scar.

    Looks good, and a change from the Ethereal=green theme. I like the fluff on the bases. Really ghostly.

    Yep, cotton wool always seems to workj a treat.
    They are looking good, on a personal note i would of gave it another wash or two with the paint but it does look nice.
    Keep up to good work.

    I love the Hexwraiths, Theerteeen!:thumbsup: The background really suits and adds to the image, and the colour scheme is good (+ not auto-green for Ethereals, using some imagination). Excellent work. Keep going!:thumbsup:

    Thanks man :) in fact they were standard ethereal green (on page 1 in this thread) but then I wanted to seperate them from my spirit hosts. The models are way to cool for one color (though there are badass single-colour schemes here!) . The background is the box from the game "betrayal at house on haunted hill" ;)

    Great hexies there, man! I love the combination of white and green ;) It really fits them and adds much to them :thumbsup:

    Also - a word to Vectra from the previous page. Those are awesome! The idea with the horses and the painting and the scheme! Inspiring!

    Well here they are, my babies. Lots of sweat and tears in this conversion. Started with a box of HE Dragon Princes of Caledor, threw in some GG GW, and finished with some green stuff that hopefully reads as ghostly flames xD

    Awesome Hexes Jimmy, and yeah, I'd say green stuffed flames work quite well. :thumbsup: Gotta agree with Theerteen regarding the BK's as well!
