    Wow Jimmy! This is crazy imaginative! And I love the composition of this dulled etheral green and rust!

    Jimmy and Skweenish's Hexwraiths are both very good!

    Jimmy, really liking that idea for the hexwraiths! they look very unique and badass. Also like the idea that you did skweemish, never thought about how you could really use anything for the hexwraiths like people have been doing with the spirit hosts. Just paint them up all ghostly :D

    Ho, very cool Wolf Child! First time I see "normal" flames, and it fits great with the black theme. Great job!

    Thanks Theerteen,I painted these fairly quickly because I wanted to use them in an upcoming tourny.The color match's my cairn wraiths so the whole ethereal thing goes together :) Great job on your hexies also,I particularly like the ghostly effect you got on the robes.

    So I'm working on a big Mousillon theme and really taking alot of Bret bits for converting. Here's my unit of Hexwraiths, which are failed Questing Knights. Skeletal Horse, even some of the noses are skeletal (hard to see in the pics). I have a second unit I'm working on now, but I'm really happy with how these came out. I hope you like them.

    They look great! And it must have been a torture to model all this ;) I got one conversion of a bret an a skellie horse, which I did years ago when my parents gave me a dremel as christmas present...was one of those "one time and never again" things :D

    Haha, thanks. They've been sealed in just a little bit of blood and skin from demmel work ;) Properly annointed, yes. I have 1 more finished and 4 more in the final construction stages. I wish that'd be it, but I then have 10 Black Knights lined up for the same work. Yep, its not something I'd ever do again, but once I get it done and primed, ready to paint, it'll be worth it. Glad to hear I'm not the only insane one out there (I'm sure there's plenty more so).

    Some purplish hexies. Planing to do another 10 of them in the future.

    "WE BRING YOU DOOM AND DAMNATION! YOUR SOULS SHALL BE OURS! ...oh, and by the way, how do you like our purple robes?" :)

    No, just kidding, as I said before in your plog, I really dig the purple! Cool choice, and far from using stale ethereal colours :thumbsup:

    I thought Hexies were an ugly model, but these paint jobs look great. Seriously considering grabbing some for my collection. :3

    I agree with Theerteen, love the purple. I should since I use it, purple, throughout my vamps army.

    That is some seriously cool work on the cloth, Schatt! Love the colour combination and the transitions. ;)

    Your Black Knights look great as well. :thumbsup:

    Thanks. I tried to paint the hexwraits in bright colors but at the end I realized that I prefer the style of painting of Dark Knights, so I'm going to continue painting my Undeads using dark and rotten color scheme.

    Its strange to think that we so many bret infantry models used as skeletons but never the cav in our armies, daft thing is it really works.
    Good idea mate, keep up the good work.

    I have plenty of Bret undead cav. using a mix of bits. You're right - it does work really well! Maybe I'll get round to putting up a blog eventually...

    Has anyone got experience converting chaos knights into Hexwraiths? I have five lying around and was thinking about using them beefed up with skeleton bits instead of forking out for new models.

    Thanks. I tried to colorize the smoke with shades ;) but I failed to make it natural.

    I love the color scheme, Schatt. And the bases are amazing!
