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 is based on the Reaper Tanned Skins, my most standard of tones.
Garrek Gorebeard (a GW character name if I ever heard one) is Reaper Fair Skin, because why not have a pasty white leader?
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.
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.
