    Dunno the exact list of models yet so its going to be a little sketchy at the start, however the first month(section) is 4 converted Blood Knights.

    The total list to date:
    4 Blood Knights
    20 Ghouls
    1 Aristocratic Vampire (Slight Conversion)
    Edit: Pics!

    I like it! Blood Knights, even though I don't field them, are always fun to see painted.

    The Tale is a Go! Get your brush moving, and good luck to you!

    The Blood Knights are;
    Head: Wood Elf Glade Guard
    Torso and Legs: Cold One Riders
    Arms: Empire Knights
    Horses: Empire Knights
    Shields: Vampire Counts
    And a little green stuff as filler.

    Ive got some time today and will try to get some WIP pics up as soon as I get some more glue. I wanted to theme the army colors based on the knights so they ended up being the first to get painted.

    So simple when you tell the parts. But it takes imagination and a picture in ones head to come up with it. I look forward to seeing what color they end up and how this all grows into a full army.

    The blood knights are looking ace so far. But I think I can see some of the horrible mold-lines that all GW models come with on the horses legs. You should get those sorted out before painting them, the effort is worth it when you get some paint on. :)

    Ooh yes, make sure those mold lines are removed. The conversion look ok at the mo, though I assume it is the head that will make them look really like vampires?

    Just got a great idea for a special character: THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN!!! Defs special rule being Killing Blow and throwing pumpkins (counts as a throwing axe, flaming attack)

    Other than that i like the blood knights. IMO id say add a bit more "evil" to the horses but you dont have to, they look badass as it is. good job.

    Darn it I was going to say your headless horsemen looks better then mine. A wonderful start on the blood knights I love the colors you used. A bright red that really catches the eyes. Looking forward to more.

    New pics? blink* blink* Uh sort of... I got a really cool idea for a paint scheme and it got through my testing regime so the red might.. not be red much longero.o Also classes started up for me so my schedule just got buried, will see what I can do though.
