Well the list is:

4x spirit host bases(lotd models)
5x blood dragons (full command)
2x corpse carts (1 balefire, 1 lodestone)
2x Varghulf (1st one is ready, one more to go)
25x Grave Guard with great weapons (full command)
6x characters

I will begin with Spirit Hosts and today or tomorrow I will post a pic of them assembled xD

Good Luck to all and may Naggash give us strength, motivation and imagination:vampire3:

Good luck to you! Those are some impressive hosts, I must say...they're much better than the default version. Are those LotR models?

It's time to start painting, so make those ghosts...ghosts! :ghost::ghost:

Yes, indeed they are LotR models and they are excellent in comparison to the original Spirit Host models. And now, you can see them painted. I have used SethDrallitoc's technique which is easy and effective :thumbsup:

The Lotr army of the dead models are slightly larger then some of the other Lotr models.

Excellent work on the hosts, I think I may have to get some for my army, I look forward to seeing more

Thanks for your kind words all!

As for the models if you really like them don't worry about their scale. If you put them next to your other units you will not see any difference on the size. Except that you can make 6 monster bases with four models on each as the box contains 24 models. It is a beautiful and economic solution xD

your next victum eh? Looks like it is assembled well, I had many issues assembling mine. Good luck with the painting.
I have a slight problem putting the corpses on the cart but I did it after some tries :redface:

I expect that it will be difficult to paint since it is assembled and I have to give some nasty curves on my brushes but that's life if you want to play with the models first :)

Love the wraiths, I never liked the real spirit host models myself :thumbsup:
I never liked them either, I think we need some fresh models especially for spirit hosts, fell bats and bat swarms.;)

Doing the cart without corpses on it for painting reasons ourselves. Then I plan to glue them on. It seems to be making it a bit easier. Least with the primering stage. But yes that is the life of a modeler.

next step is to finish the zombies to the front, then do the fires (I have really been testing again & again how to do fire effect) and finally the metallic rusted parts of the cart. I hope that I will make it soon enough!

Hope you like it:lol:

For my zombies I have used a technique that was one of the Invocation issues. Part of this zombie painting tutorial was how to paint the wooden parts, so I did it in three stages:

1. Scorched Brown (basecoat)
2. Scorched Brown:Khemri Brown mix (1:1)
3. Pure Khemri Brown

Stage 2 and 3 were done with light drybrush

I hope that this will help you :)

I am glad that you like the result. I have spent many hours mostly testing the fire effect and to be honest it could look better.

As for the fire technique I have used as a guide mostly for theory this

FIRE TUTORIAL

Have in mind that fire goes from white on the bottom to red on top.

1. Basecoat the flame white
2. Drybrush with golden yellow
3. Watered Golden Yellow making a glaze in the recesses of the bottom flames
4. Watered Blazing Orange making a glaze in the recesses of the flames on the top/middle of the fire.
5. Drybrush with Blazing Orange
6. Drybrush with Blood Red
7. Drybrush with Red Gore
8. Drybrush with Scorched Brown

Stages 5 to 8 will be done going higher and higher on the flames and maybe you can see it on the flame I have done and even better on the fire tutorial.
