I picked up a Venkhalt the Soulreaper from Fireforge for a more traditional wight king, and while I was working on him I dropped his shield carrying arm and can't find it. Once I do find it, I'll have 500 points ready to field and paint. Might pick up a bunch of heater shield sprues, haven't decided. Classic me.

Any recommendations for a weapon? Thinking mace, but the sword is iconic. Have an axe as well.

Edit: Decided to go with the sword.

Sword was the right choice, but now I'm regretting the kopis I gave the skeletons. Hrm.

Getting ready to apply green stuff to the mounted and infantry wight king model. Wasn't sure if I was going to run the mounted version with a shield, but this looks good. More than good.

I was going to put the book in his hand, but it ended up not fitting correctly... so I went with the floating book trick.

Really like the custom necro - the floating book trick would look awesome if you can paint him with a glow from his hand? The roses perhaps detract from the overall feel of threat, but again this is probably just something for the paint work.

Where have you got to with your Wight King?

I think black, purple, or marble roses would look appropriate.

I was working on that Wight King just before GW announced their new model, and when they did I lost interest. So now I'm waiting for the Start Collecting box to drop. I needed the other models in it as well, so it works out.

if you could get the roses to actually look like marble, with the veins, that would look brilliant! 👍

Fair enough, look forward to seeing more additions when you get hold of the box
