Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.

In need of a little project with a definite start and end, I picked up the Shadespire box set; 8 miniatures and 6 hexes of terrain to build and then It's done.
So here's the first of the warbands from the box - who will obviously double up as an age of Sigmar Skirmish warband.
For the palette I took my cue from the italianate baroque masks the Stormcasts have been saddled with and looked at Venetian Carnival costumes. From there I got the green and gold with purple and turquoise accents.
Strictly speaking, following this the masks themselves should be white but I HATE THEM SO MUCH I didn't want to draw attention to them.
Painting was very simple- a zenith prime followed by a thin glaze of dark green then a drybrush of yellow-green. The whole then had a green wash added as a filter to tie it all together.
The bases were painted using the same techniques and palette as the various bits of scenery I've been doing for Caliburn Fell which also happens to match the Shadespire boards.
As an aside the bases in this kit are bloody brillant.
Enjoyed these and the Khorne nutters are next.
