Yeah to be honest I'm not super into the paint job on these, just because I tried to go faster than usual and I don't think the drybrush/wash is smooth. That being said, the metal is actually my favorite part, because I layered it smoothly. But to each their own. Maybe if I do more of these guys I'll layer them thin and do more of a blend from green to metal?
Thanks Theerteen, that was definitely part of the effect I was hoping for, and I've seen you've already found my army pics.
As a side, and not that I recommend modeling for advantage, but by mounting my hexies on the direwolves they now receive hard cover from the vast majority of our core. The lower profile compliments the idea of a sleek hunter type model.
Hexwraiths are perhaps the unit that pushed me into thinkin 'I wanna play Vampires' - so I was really looking forward to painting them. I was right too, they were bags of fun to paint and, at the risk of sounding immodest, turned out okay.
Well, the caprissons leave me cold, but the wraiths themselves work.
I love the Hexwraiths, Theerteeen! The background really suits and adds to the image, and the colour scheme is good (+ not auto-green for Ethereals, using some imagination). Excellent work. Keep going!
Thanks man in fact they were standard ethereal green (on page 1 in this thread) but then I wanted to seperate them from my spirit hosts. The models are way to cool for one color (though there are badass single-colour schemes here!) . The background is the box from the game "betrayal at house on haunted hill"
Well here they are, my babies. Lots of sweat and tears in this conversion. Started with a box of HE Dragon Princes of Caledor, threw in some GG GW, and finished with some green stuff that hopefully reads as ghostly flames
