While I was painting the other Shadespire-era Stormcast, I did their other blue friends. Plus, this one has an eagle!
After a Beastgrave interlude, let’s go back and fill in some Shadespire warbands.
Steelheart’s Champions were one of the warbands included in the original Shadespire box. I joined the part too late for that, but it’s still readily available as a standalone warband box.
I painted them very much to match the Nightvault starter warband, Stormsire’s Cursebreakers.
I have to admit this big chunky armor is starting to grow on me a little.
Morgwaeth’s Blade Coven is the other of the new(ish) warbands. In proper Games Workshop style, they feature giant hair.
Much like the studio paint, I used hair color to help Morgwaeth stand out as leader. She gets blue, while everybody else gets pink.
Only slightly more impractical than the giant hair are the giant headpieces.
One downside to the Blade-Coven is how much volume the models take. Good luck fitting it in standard infantry foam.
I didn’t have to transition between snake and woman on Kyrae. Her armor hides all that.
