Underworlds: Garrek’s Reavers

The other warband from the original Shadespire box is Garrek’s Reavers.


I went with a variety of skin tones for these half-naked men. Arnulf is GW Contrast Darkoath Flesh, which is one of the thin style of contrast paints.

Blooded Saek

Blooded Saek is based on the Reaper Tanned Skins, my most standard of tones.

Garrek Gorebeard

Garrek Gorebeard (a GW character name if I ever heard one) is Reaper Fair Skin, because why not have a pasty white leader?

Karsus the Chained

Karsus and Targor are repeats, so there’s at least some consistency across the warband.


The hair is Secret Weapon rubbers, which ends up as a greenish gray. I like using them for grays that have some color to them, when I’m tired of the blues in Reaper Blue Liner.

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.
