Hi everyone, Tyler from Mengel Miniatures here! I always love a good forum and I used to post on the old Tomb Kings one all the time. Even though I post everything on social as well as my own site I figured I would make a thread here as well.

the Soulshard Expanse is my own little corner of Shyish for all my traditional Death armies (my TK are in the Endless Deserts). I came up with the name because all of my Death models have purple crystals on their bases which are supposed to be crystallized Death magic. I got that idea from the Mortarch of Night audio drama. I hope to actually flesh out the setting a bit more in the future, but for now I’ll use this thread for my Nighthaunt, Gravelords, and Bonereapers armies.

to kick it off here’s my latest conversion, a “Necromancer Lord” for my Gravelords. I’ll run him as a Vampire Lord in normal games, but I also plan on using the Anvil of Apotheosis rules to give him a custom Warscroll.

He’s based off the new Swampcaller Shaman mini from the Dominion set, which GW sent me for review.

Hope you like him and I’ll post up some more of my stuff soon!

First of all, welcome to the forum, glad to have you here! 🙂

Now that is one wicked looking Necromancer! Love the addition of the bird as well. To me, the Shaman is by far the best Kruleboyz model in the box, and now I'm proper tempted to steal it from my brother who I split the box with. 😁

Welcome Mengel, it's great to have you here! You are more than welcome to post links to your Painting guides here as well, they are really good!

The necro looks great! Awesome job on the conversion, I love all the details🤩.

Cheers,

That looks amazing, all your little additions and tweaks fit in so well. If the shaman gets an individual release I'd be very tempted to try something similar with the model!

Spectacular conversion!

I think the head is a bit on the small side... but it is a necromancer, so why not? Can't wait to see it painted!

Beautiful. I always love the wilder-looking necromancer takes and you really did something great here.
