Cometh the Undead - Progress of House Corvinus 2

Further updates from my VC's progress. Finally I finished up with the Grave Guards plus a combat vampire using Vlad's model.

Initially I had only 10 GGs but with a bit of imagination and extra sprues, managed to get 20 in the form of freshly resurrected GGs. This is temporary while waiting my shipment from Maelstrom but I think it looked decent and playable. Also I flocked the movement trays with grass to match their bases.

My combat vampire, Carugarul Corvinus the Bloody. Spent a few hours on this bloke but I think it turned out nicely. I just love the Vlad von Carstein model and honestly I think is the best looking vampire from Citadel. Mostly Chaos Black and Boltgun Metal for the armor with a wash of 1:1 Scorched Brown and Chaos Black. The highlights of Codex Grey on the black portion and Boltgun Metal on the the metals. For the spectral cape, base of Chaos Black and wash of Warlock purple. Continued with a light layer of Warlock purple. Then highlights of 1:1 Warlock Purple and Skull White and further highlight of Skull White on the spectral faces. And finally a light Minwax treament to bring out the face portion of the model.

Enjoy the pics and will post with more updates soon. Till then laters..

Cometh the Undead - Grave Guards, Corpse Cart

Hi guys, finally I can do some hobbying after a month of assignments, projects, finals and blah blah..Seriously working and doing your Masters at the same time is beeeeaaatcchhh! Just got no time to hobby. Well I did some gaming at Slice & Dice and recently we had huge Warhammer game (i think it was like 15000 points per side..) but more on that later. I got a window of 1 week before my second term starts and frankly I have to finish my VC project, pronto! I think got to resort to a mini iron painter method to finish up. Well here's some of my recent progress from 2 days ago which are the Corpse Cart and some Grave Guards.

Grave guards are pretty easy with Bleached Bone, well on the bones, Boltgun Metals on the armor, some Dwarf Bronze on thier crests and helms, Blood Red on the cloths. Then the obvious Minwax dip with the matt spray after drying, finito!

For the Corpse Cart I have to put in a little effort on it. For the zombies first a basecoat of Bronze flesh, then heavy wash of Dark Flesh and highlights of Elf Flesh before dipping. This is to bring out some of that fleshy zombie vigour. Well I kinda like how it turned out. The wooden portion of the cart, base coat of Graveyard Earth and wash of Scorched Brown. Then the other obvious parts like the wheel and axle with Boltgun Metal and the dip will do the rest.

Thats my update so far. I think I will post some of the pictures of my gaming here in Bangkok in the next post. Good luck to you all participating on the Ghemeehal Legio Tourney, another great Legio event I can't attend, sigh..till then laters..
