Underworlds: Godsworn Hunt

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.

Grundann Blood-Eye

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.

Shond Head-Claimer

That sword just look uncomfortable to carry around when not in battle.


The best warbands have a little critter to help out.

Underworlds: Magore’s Fiends

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.

Magore Redhand

I haven’t done a lot of Khorne. The red and bronze is a nice look.

Ghartok Flayskull

As with most of my Underworlds, the bulk of the models are done with GW Contrast paints, with some highlights from regular paints.

Zharkus the Bloodsighted

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.

Underworlds: Steelheart’s Champions

After a Beastgrave interlude, let’s go back and fill in some Shadespire warbands.

Severin Steelheart

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.

Angharad Brightshield

I painted them very much to match the Nightvault starter warband, Stormsire’s Cursebreakers.

Obryn the Bold

I have to admit this big chunky armor is starting to grow on me a little.
