The group pics are here.

Models are on the tiles for scale. It’s a big board, right? In one corner, the King of Babies. In the other corner, the big weapons of humanity. The Scribe as the ref.

They compete to see who is worthy of bathing in a pool of blood.

The last of the minis are done! These are miscellaneous models from the Iron Weapons sprue. I’m not sure if they even have equipment cards or whatnot associated with them.

Since they are Iron Weapons, I painted them similar to the weapons the Big Game Hunters have and made sure to make the iron cold. There’s some yellow to make the gold accents and the shield gets jade-like motifs.

The 3 survivor characters are now done. 2 Big Game Hunters and a Twilight Cloak.

Each of them did get a bit of a kitbash. The bundle came with a set of iron weapons. The male hunter got a spear, the female hunter is dragging a mace, and the Twilight Cloak got duel axes.

This was also one of my first times using GW contrast paints to give the iron weapons the tint of cold blue as well as the gold accents.

Get it? ARMchair?! Yes.

I have completed the Scribe and his handy bookholder. I went for a similar scheme to the box art. The desaturated turquoise for the arms lets the Scribe be the center of the piece and pop.

This was a particularly exciting model to paint because I used my new Scalecolor Acyrlics for the first time. I have the skin tone set and followed the instructions that came with the set. I haven’t used artist tube acrylics in a long time, and it felt great! Definitely different from your average model paints. I think it turned out great.

I looked up medieval ornate lettering to use on the book. I wanted to do what they used to, so I could make the book more interesting. Since the Scribe looks pensive, I left a page unfinished so it looks like he is still working.

Don’t you think he looks a bit like Bruce Willis?

Kingdom Death Board Commission Update #4 – The King of Babies July 2, 2020

One of the best models in the Kingdom Death range, the King. From what I gather, he is a being made of babies holding each other, with a bunch of arms that act as zippers.

I imagine the attack sequence being babies launched at the survivors, far deadlier than any bunny rabbit, and then he laughs in baby. A great take on the Knights of Ni. Wholesome yet morbid.

I wanted to make sure I had some texture on the cloak to make it look like tanned hide. There are a bit of tonal variations in the browns. Stippling over the entire thing gives it the texture I want.

It looks great! I added dirt, grass tufts, and a pool of blood.

The board is almost done. All the tiles are painted, just a few touchups are needed. The next thing is to add dirt and colour to the divets and wherever is devoid of faces. Though I think I want the middle of the board to be the traditional pool of blood.

I’ve been radio silent for a while now, and this is why. I’ve been working on smoothing out step lines from these 3D printed board tiles. Now, I am excited to show off the fruits of just over half the labour.

Since these are printed from a filament printer, the layer lines are quite obvious. I used UV curable resin to smooth the steps. Since that’s all done, they are now ready to be painted.

I’m excited to see it all done.

After a couple years, I’ve finally completed another warband for Warhammer Underworlds. Just in time for the second season to be released. Averon is the same Averon I entered into the Crystal Brush competition at Adepticon 2019, and ended up making the first cut (yay!).

I continued with the NMM gold scheme with the rest of the unit. Though the rocks on the base ended up a different colour than Averon. Maybe I’ll go back and make him compliant.

I think I will play in a couple Underworlds tournaments at the local GW with the Stormsires to get some mileage, but they are in my first 1000 points of my Cities of Sigmar Freeguild Hallowheart army. Keyword shenanigans can make them part of the warscroll battalion with other wizards, love it.

Progress on the commission. I think this is the last of the Frostgrave scatter terrain… and Goblins, now that I think about it.
