    Wow, if my army wasn't already painted I'd ask if you do commissions! I love the brightness of your models and the great job you did highlighting them. The chariots are my favorite unit, I really like the color choices you made with them.

    Thanks for the kind words :)

    This month I finished my Casket. The base was already done so I worked mostly on the crews and some touch-up;

    aimageshack.us_a_img832_1746_tklog165.jpg

    And since I was done early with my Casket, I also made and painted those wounds markers;

    aimageshack.us_a_img594_8404_tklog168.jpg

    That was a relatively smooth month after the Sphinx, so next month I'm gonna paint my Hierotitan. Should be fun, and I'm actually excited to paint it!

    Wow, black is the hardest color to highlight but you did a tremendous job. The best heirotitan I've ever seen. Well done, sir.

    I am all kinds of impressed with that titan... serious kudos there! The rest of the army looks good too, and I am really fond of the old mummies unit - classics in every sense. I will be popping back to see how you get on :happy:

    Absolutely stunning :O

    The black is great! Do I detect some space wolves grey or something similar?

    Super nice job on the titan, it's not too often you see someone who can both convert and paint to a high standard.

    Why thank you, really glad that people love it!

    Since last update, I've started to paint my unit of old mummies (count-as Tomb Guards with halberds). Still not done (I do about a rank per month) but here's what it looks like at this point;

    First rank done in November;

    aimageshack.us_a_img824_1745_tklog173.jpg

    aimageshack.us_a_img32_572_tklog174.jpg

    And in December;

    [​IMG]

    aimageshack.us_a_img72_4028_tklog182.jpg

    But I also kept some time during these months to alternate between painting and building. In November I spent my time on finishing a lot of my TK characters. There's quite a few of them so let's go!

    Generic Liche;
    aimageshack.us_a_img607_3299_tklog175.jpg

    Generic Liche mounted (stand-in horse, real one will be different);
    aimageshack.us_a_img87_8420_tklog176.jpg

    Liche with Lore of Death (that's an old 5th edition Necrarch body here);
    aimageshack.us_a_img528_6977_tklog178.jpg

    Liche with Lore of Death, mounted (this one is a 6th edition Necrarch, they really do make great Liche material!);
    aimageshack.us_a_img689_4707_tklog181.jpg

    Generic Tomb King/Prince;
    aimageshack.us_a_img339_8273_tklog179.jpg

    Generic Tomb King/Prince (made him a scorpion shield to go will all the scorpion icons he have everywhere);
    aimageshack.us_a_img541_6290_tklog180.jpg

    Mounted Tomb Herald;
    aimageshack.us_a_img26_2671_tklog177.jpg

    In December I gave my attention on some VC units (you can see them in my other log), but I also just finished a TK unit tonight! To go along the mounted Herald above, here's a Horsemen horde;

    aimageshack.us_a_img152_981_tklog183.jpg

    Fear the horde of crappy Horsemen and the average hero's fury!

    Wow! This is seriously the sauciest desert corpse army I've seen. Great work! The black on that titan is amazing!

    Here's the latest update for this month.

    First, I've finished up my mummies at last (Tomb Guards with halberd)!

    aimageshack.us_a_img12_8528_tklog184.jpg

    Then I've painted a scenery for my TK;

    Thanks!

    The stone were base-coated white, then washed with watered down Karak Stone. Then I gave it two coat of Seraphim Sepia, and it's pretty much it!

    Aw, that's a GREAT unit. Were I to do a tomb guard unit I'd do exactly the same thing. Nice conversion with the standard bearer. I see uyou've even got the old Heroquest mummy in there!
