So been a while since I posted. The festive period fairly put a halt to all progress but getting up and going again now, albeit very slowly. So finished the Wight King, a Ghast for my Ghouls and another 10 dire wolves (taking me to 20).
So I got bored of painting Khorne after 10 Bloodletters but will struggle on and continue them at some point. With Cry Havoc in Dunfermline coming up I decided to play as the Death Grand Alliance for the first time (yes I am playing AoS now as well........ but will never surrender to the oval bases).
With this decision made I needed to paint up the Skull Catapult I purchased on E-Bay many months ago. Little bit rusty and painted in a hurry but results below:
Not my finest work but difficult to achieve much with the a war machine that is predominantly one colour. Remaining to be painted:
To Go: 2 Morghast Archia (New purchase) Wight King BSB - Forgeworld 70 Zombies 22 Skeleton Archers Mortarch Mannfred Krell Zombie Dragon Terrorghiest 3 Varghiest Corpse Cart 10 Blood Knights 6 Black Knights Mourngul (Still to buy) Second Skull Catapult (Still to buy and checking E-Bay)
Countless old character models and whatever my ridiculously sized bits box can comprehend.
Think I enjoy painting undead a lot more so this blog might become more active again over the next few months.
So I came 13th out of 32 at Cry Havoc with my friend that topped me for 1st in the last ever 8th edition tournament (see photo in previous post) coming 12th. I will beat him one of these days and taste the sweet nectar of beer as he drives home for once (loser drives home).
Anyway with that behind me I started to think I achieved a pretty high ranking position considering the list I took was thrown together and I didn't have any faith in it. It was:
Wight King on Skeletal Steed with Ruler of the Night and Cursed Book Necrotect Varghulf Courtier Necromancer 30 Ghouls FC 10 Skeletons FC + Spears 10 Skeletons FC + Spears 1 Skull Catapult 1 Terrorgheist 30 Grave Guard 3 Spirit Hosts
Some good synergy with the Varghulf and ghouls / Wight King, Necromancer and Grave Guard / Necrotect, Skull Catapult and Terrorgheist but when writing it I wished I had more painted (even with a 6000 point 8th edition army painted). So after watching a number of other Death players I noticed something that everyone has that I was missing, I present to you my nearly finished Mourngul!!!!!
Just the basing to do once I get back from holiday and then I'll update again. Think I'll be painting a number of larger models over the coming months (Zombie Dragon, Terrorgheist and Mannfred).
As always all comments, tips, suggestions welcome.
hey Adam, the Mourngul is a hobbiests dream. Easy to put together, easy to paint, especially considering I'm stuck with the ethereal wash and highlight technique that I've been doing since my blog started, but the theme works I think.
