Thanks D I didn’t think it would grow in the beginning, but I’m glad it did.
Thanks to your comment earlier I decided to link them so to make it easier to find what you are looking for.
But those LOTR miniatures look amazing; absolutely love the shading on them you are like a new age Michael Angelo. :thumbsup:

An awesome conversion merenwen, really dynamic and well painted! I personally don't like cotton wool (or whatever that is) on bases, but that's just personal preference. The model itself is stunning!

Cheers,

@ Dogmar: Those Spirit Hosts look AWESOME! :| Makes me want to see the LotR movie once again. :) I don't have Spirit Hosts yet but I've thought of buying those LotR ghosts when I'm not too busy. Top notch work. :thumbsup:

@ Merenwen: Those scratch-built Hosts look great, and the cotton wool works well with them IMO. Goog job. :)

- Cheers, Skarsnik. :thumbsup:

Thanks! :)

Merenwen: Thank you! Still like yours better than mine thoughxD

Valdiroth: Hehe, thanks man, army shot when I'm finished.. Only 60 ghouls and 20 grave guards and 5 blood knights to go:innocent: Although, that's just what's remaining in terms of unpainted miniatures, I have an army fully painted, but that was my 7th ed army. Now working on completing all my VC miniatures since I tend to use many different lists now to find out what works and what don't.

count kill a lot: Actually its shadow grey drybrushed with space wolves and skull white, simple but effective. Thanks!

Skar that’s an amazing paint job you’ve done their, they look great and they work beautifully with the water effect it’s as though they belong with one another.

good idea to keep the eyes darker,Skarsnik, did you go for a white undercoat with several black washes before doing the green or did you do it like Seth described and then added a black wash in the recesses before doing the green?

Very nice work.

Thanks! :) I painted these like Seth, so I started from black and highlighted it into white. The heads and the shoulders of the Spirits were painted with pure white, but I left the eyes, mouths and the rims of the chainmals black.

There are some fantastic hosts here. I have to say I like them all, but Merenwen, your scratch built hosts are awesomesauce. Greenstuff? Or paper? Tell.

I kit bashed my Spirit hosts and tried a different kind of colour scheme where the spirits looked murky and grimy, tell me what you think.
