Nice wraiths. Perhaps you could use cotton wool on the bases (perhaps tinged with some green) to create a ghostly mist.

The wraiths are Great, I love the dark to light gradient. We do that sometimes but never use such a dark color I think we will have to try that now. Great job keep them coming.

So my skeletons are done ( the final wash is drying as I type ) but my camera is in the other room with my sleeping wife so no photos until tomorrow morning at the earliest.

nice skeltons you really made the green work well with your army. It seems so natural with them. My favorite is your wraiths though, They remind me of the old wight's from 3rd I think. the ones who seemed to float. I still have a few myself. But a beautiful army at this time, keep up the great work.

I think I'm in love....but the hubby would kill me if I changed his army colours now. (again.)

:redface:

Guess I will just have to drool on yours then. :tongue:

Thanks guys. :)

They did turn out nice, too bad I seem to have messed up the wash somehow. You see how shiny they are that is 12 hours or so after I painted them, they are still shiny now. :(

Don't get me wrong I still love them, I just wish they weren't so shiny.

Brush on matte coat will take the shiny coat away. Sometimes that happens with old washes or even too much wash. Not trying to say either is the case. But Ive had a similiar incident at times is all. Hope this trick helps.

Too much wash, I don't always have the right colour of paint, for example the only silver I own is Mithril Silver so I was trying to dull it down some.

I like it! How did you achieve the smooth transition (i.e. how did you do it, because I suck at things like that) :)

The light box makes a already wonderful mini even better. Very very impressive ivor. They are my favorite of your army as I said before. And to note I added one of my old wight's that they remind me of to my plog and gamers tale today.

Thank you. I saw SethDrallitoc's technique a while back and knew then that I wanted to use it.

Thank you! I love the Mantic models they are just great to look at. What is even better is the light box I used. I got the idea here ( slightly NSFW ), cost me a whole $4.50CAD to make. ( Note I used a rotary tool not a saw when I did mine, made it nice and easy )

Sorry about the lack of activity. We have listed my house on the market so lots of cleaning, followed by more cleaning to keep it shiny. Also I have been putting in some extra time at both of my jobs so very busy. Anyway I am going to paint up my other five wraiths and post them tonight or tomorrow.

I like them I so look forward to getting my own to do. I never liked the mantic wraiths till I seen them painted by you to be honest. Plus the extra detail you see in your pictures have helped. congrats on finishing them so whats next ivor.
