Stormcast Eternals!

I was going to write about basing, but that can happen tomorrow after the greenstuff has dried and I have finished the bases. Instead, I want to write about the Stromcast Eternals I have just finished from the Soulwars box set. It does mean I have painted an entire boxed set of miniatures, which I feel is an achievement of its own. Today, I finished the last of the Stormcast.

I am less then enamoured with Push-fit miniatures. I found that more often than not, it didn’t. I might go so far as to say I would rather work with finecast… I ended up clipping off the push fit bit and just working the miniatures together in the usual way. I also had to use greenstuff to fill gaps – I did learn that I need practice in this area.

Anyway, that small gripe aside, here are the miniatures. I’ve already sold several units so I cannot take a group picture, but here they are individually:

All in all, I prefered painting the Night Haunt part of the box set, but these weren’t bad – I’d paint them over skeletons any day!!

Tutorial: Bones

A friend of mine recently asked me how I painted bone, so instead of telling them, I said I would create a tutorial for them to have so they can refer back to it. This is how I paint bone on skeletons and other actual bones, rather than freehand. I will do a seperate tutorial for freehand as it is slightly different.

Step 1: I use these paints for bone:

Step 2: Collect the miniature and apply a base coar of Rakarth Flesh.

Step 3: Wash with Agrax Earthshade and let dry

Step 4: Drybrush with Ushabti Bone.

Step 5: Drubrush with Screaming Skull.

Done.

Of course, you can go lighter than this but I like my skeletons to look a bit dirty. Nothing comes out the ground clean after all.
