A Tale of Four (Cambridge) Warlords
So end of November has crept up and the painting has gone pretty well for me. I managed to get all the paint on the models but not quite been able to finish the basing (this seems to be a trend). So here are pictures of my battalion the namarti corp which consists of 2 units of thralls, 2 units of reavers and a soulrender.
December is going to be our last month for this AoS tale of four gamers and the theme is to doing a centrepiece model. For my idoneth there was only one choice, the eidolon of mathlann! I am also going to try and paint something for my stormcast so going to try and paint up the celestant prime model I've had sitting around for over a year as my stretch goal for this month.
So my post is a little late for last month due to a holiday but I'm happy to report that I completed my pledge (the small amount of it that I actually had to do). The first part of my pledge was to complete a battalion, for which I chose the Execution Horde due to the low amount of models I needed to paint to finish it off (being a unit of Spirit Hosts and a Lord Executioner).
With those models done I had my completed battalion, with my Lord Executioner now ready to remind those warlords foolish enough to oppose Nagash of the fear of Death
As well as the battalion I also wanted to start clearing up the small amount of additional models I had so I chose to also paint the anniversary Guardian of Souls to add another spellcaster to my force. Another cracking (if very expensive) Nighthaunt hero that was a joy to paint. I tried to blend the cloak like I'd done with the Knight of Shrouds and Lord Executioner to tie them all together and I think it came out quite well.
With November now done however we move into the final month of the Tale and with the task to paint a fitting centrepiece there's really only one model that will do - Lady Olynder, Mortarch of Grief
This will be a real challenge for me as I want to apply everything I've practiced with all the other models I've painted to really do this model justice. I think this should be a fitting end for my Tale with the Nighthaunt and will leave me with very little left to paint in order to make out a tournament ready list for a Throne of Skulls next year
