The Godsworn Hunt is the first Underworlds warband I’ve painted that’s mostly just humans. Maybe extra fighty and somewhat magic humans, but no body spikes or snake hybrids.
They still have rad hair, though.
I tried brushing on colorshift paint for some of the metallics, like Grundann’s skull shoulder pad. It’s not as strong at shifting as when airbrushed, but I like it as a subtle effect.
The dirt is a muted purple, which contrasts against the greenery nicely without being too cartoonish.
Here again is the colorshift, this time on the blade on the shoulder pad.
That sword just look uncomfortable to carry around when not in battle.
The best warbands have a little critter to help out.
For whatever reason, Magore’s Fiends seems to be the most difficult to find (for a reasonable price) of the original Shadespire warbands. Patience paid off.
I haven’t done a lot of Khorne. The red and bronze is a nice look.
As with most of my Underworlds, the bulk of the models are done with GW Contrast paints, with some highlights from regular paints.
I went with purple for the stone on the base, instead of my usual gray. I wanted a bit more color, especially to help bring out the yellow skull river.
Riptooth had a nasty gap between his to main halves. It’s still there, but a lot better than when I started.
While I was painting the other Shadespire-era Stormcast, I did their other blue friends. Plus, this one has an eagle!
Now I have a melee, ranged, and spellcasting set of Stormcast Eternals.
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.
