    Literally bolt gun metal with a green wash I've had since the hexagon paint tub days, nothing more.

    Nice. I've tried many times to get that type of effect, but it's always looked wrong. Thanks for the colour scheme though. I shall try it xD

    I really like the rich red of that Wight King - works very good with that green sword :) Did you find a suitable shield for him?

    That army shot is fantastic, I love the chaotic riot of colours contrasting with the few orderly regiments. Keep it coming :)

    Might be taking a little break for a bit to paint a Khorne daemon army I just started but still have plenty of VC to paint so will drop back in with stuff in the near future.

    I really dig what you've done with the base for your Papa Varg!

    @Zacharias Cool Vargulf and bat swarm - two things I'm inspired to pick up by seeing CN members' minis (yours included!) Wicked army shot too!

    A very nice expansion! Your army is truly impressive :) And seconding - that base under a Varghulf is really interesting! What is that? Some specialist base or something much more mundane?

    So I got bored of painting Khorne after 10 Bloodletters but will struggle on and continue them at some point. With Cry Havoc in Dunfermline coming up I decided to play as the Death Grand Alliance for the first time (yes I am playing AoS now as well........ but will never surrender to the oval bases).

    With this decision made I needed to paint up the Skull Catapult I purchased on E-Bay many months ago. Little bit rusty and painted in a hurry but results below:

    Not my finest work but difficult to achieve much with the a war machine that is predominantly one colour. Remaining to be painted:

    To Go:
    2 Morghast Archia (New purchase)
    Wight King BSB - Forgeworld
    70 Zombies
    22 Skeleton Archers
    Mortarch Mannfred
    Krell
    Zombie Dragon
    Terrorghiest
    3 Varghiest
    Corpse Cart
    10 Blood Knights
    6 Black Knights
    Mourngul (Still to buy)
    Second Skull Catapult (Still to buy and checking E-Bay)

    Countless old character models and whatever my ridiculously sized bits box can comprehend.

    Think I enjoy painting undead a lot more so this blog might become more active again over the next few months.

    What a great looking classic army you have there! I especially like the basket you added to the catapult. Might have to do something similar with mine.

    So I came 13th out of 32 at Cry Havoc with my friend that topped me for 1st in the last ever 8th edition tournament (see photo in previous post) coming 12th. I will beat him one of these days and taste the sweet nectar of beer as he drives home for once (loser drives home).

    Anyway with that behind me I started to think I achieved a pretty high ranking position considering the list I took was thrown together and I didn't have any faith in it. It was:

    Wight King on Skeletal Steed with Ruler of the Night and Cursed Book
    Necrotect
    Varghulf Courtier
    Necromancer
    30 Ghouls FC
    10 Skeletons FC + Spears
    10 Skeletons FC + Spears
    1 Skull Catapult
    1 Terrorgheist
    30 Grave Guard
    3 Spirit Hosts

    Some good synergy with the Varghulf and ghouls / Wight King, Necromancer and Grave Guard / Necrotect, Skull Catapult and Terrorgheist but when writing it I wished I had more painted (even with a 6000 point 8th edition army painted). So after watching a number of other Death players I noticed something that everyone has that I was missing, I present to you my nearly finished Mourngul!!!!!

    Just the basing to do once I get back from holiday and then I'll update again. Think I'll be painting a number of larger models over the coming months (Zombie Dragon, Terrorgheist and Mannfred).

    As always all comments, tips, suggestions welcome.

    Awesome! I've always had eyes for that model. Did he come together quickly? Sounds like you sent 8th out with a bang, does my cold heart good to hear it.

    hey Adam, the Mourngul is a hobbiests dream. Easy to put together, easy to paint, especially considering I'm stuck with the ethereal wash and highlight technique that I've been doing since my blog started, but the theme works I think.

    Looks great, man! I may have to pull the trigger on that model finally. Thanks for the inspiration!

    So decided I did not have enough time between returning from holiday and heading off on holiday again to paint one of my larger models. Although I did manage to get my Wight King BSB painted:

    The banner was incredibly tricky and not really happy with the outcome of the bat but couldn't be bothered re-painting.

    I like that red you're putting on the BSB, very eye catching. Nice touch putting green flames on the catapult too. Awesome work!
