@Von Drak: Your Grave Guard look awesome, although if you wanted to go for the eerie balefire green glow look you could try basing them in Caliban Green, then drybrush edges with Warpstone Glow then highlight edges with Moot green.

Was testing on my camera on some of my newest members of my Grave guard, really like how the shot came out and how I painted them! I have 55 grave guard so they only are a portion, I will post more hopefully soon

Here's some of my old school grave guard from my teen years:

GG with great weapons:



A bunch of old metal GG with hand weapons:



My latest stuff is in this thread somewhere already but looking forward to sharing my latest once these green skins are sorted.

Like in the black knights thread...I love to see the old models again ;) I have them too, and the color scheme is similar (surprisingly xD ) A nice clean paintjob! Very good!

They seem more like Black Gourds to me xD Big + for the idea!

EDIT: Only later I saw that they are really Black Gourds! Awesome army!

There is something strangely satisfying about a grave guard regiment that is ancient IRL (as in mid 1980s, at least much of it) so that they've 'been around' a long while both in the game and real worlds. The paint jobs are very old, being made 'dirtier' sometime in the 90s.

In fact, some of these are so old that my brother might have originally painted them.
