Hey Ghrask! Nope that’s one of the alternative heads of the cairn wraith. :mask


I love your painting style, Ishkur. It’s so clean and nice. I want to attend a painting workshop taught by you. :wink:

What’s your recipe for the grey rocks? :slight_smile:

Ishkur Cinderhat:

Wow thanks! But seeing how slow and long my painting sessions tend to be, I think that would be a rather tedious event! :slight_smile:

My recipe for the rock colour: chaos black basecoat, drybrushed with a mix of vallejo light grey, then lighter mixes of light grey and vallejo sky grey, finished off with some very light strokes of skull white. I dust on some olive weathering powder here and there for a little extra colour.

Ishkur Cinderhat:

Here is what I have been up to around the weekend.

My Cairn Wraith - the green witch fire I paint for some bling in my army does not seem to look really ethereal, so I’ll probably try something else with the Banshees on the Mortis Engine once I get these…

Right now I’m working on a small unit of zombies, not overly enthusiastic about the models since they are sooo bad and sooo old but as a fledgling necromancer you just have to have some around I guess. :slight_smile:


Nicely done. That’s a pretty neat model.


Thats a cool model indeed, and a very nice color and paint job!!

Kera foehunter:

very nice !!

LOVE the Cairn Wraith. The witchfire looks much better than the traditional ethereal look.


Jaw dropped!

You make the new GW mediocre (IMO) grave guard look absolutely amazing!!! Entire army is awesome, want to see more!


Lovely work Ishkur, keep them coming!


truly nice work, thanks for sharing

Ishkur Cinderhat:


I really wasn’t too enthusiastic about painting these, but it had to be done. I feel they are some of the worst models currently in the GW range, the ridiculous hairstyles, the metres-wide hands, the casual-style clothing… but they are kinda necessary in a VC army and I had the models lying around anyway.

It was a bit difficult to paint them with differently coloured clothes so that they are not too uniform and still stick to the overall appearance of the army. But I guess they turned out OK, what do you guys think?

Now I look forward much more to painting the dire wolves and corpse cart still missing in my 1000 pts list! :slight_smile:


The painting on the entire army is awesome, I’m jealous of your skillz (with a Z). I don’t like the zombie models either, did you consider mantics zombies? I dabbled in a VC army awhile ago, bought 120 mantic zombies, really cheap. If you haven’t already, you should check them out :slight_smile:


And thats what I call nice!!

Kera foehunter:

you made gw worst figures into a master piece

they look great Ish


Yeah, they are old models, but your unit looks great none the less.

Ishkur Cinderhat:

So this is what I have been painting last week. Pretty much every evening of last week, that is. :slight_smile:


Stunning! Nice work Ish!


Sweet! The green eldritch flame works great!

Kera foehunter:

Woooooooooooooooooooooooooow !!! i give you a 9.9
