Scaverous and Erebus

This week I've been working on three Slayer Helljacks for my Mortenebra list. However, they aren't done yet (really...just got them assembled and base coated), so I'll have to blog them later. In the mean time, I finished off two Cryx models from the Wrath expansion that have been in the "nearly finished" state for several months.

So, this week we have Lord Scaverous and his character 'jack, Erebus. That's Scaverous on the right.

Back to the rust & dust shenanigans using MIGS weathering powders.

Scaverous is a huge model. Why they stuck him on a medium base, we'll never know. Hell...he's at least as big as Erebus, who gets a large base.

Erebus is Scaverous' soul collector, and to help him out, he has the Overtake ability (allowing him to move 1" after killing an enemy model).

I'm still struggling a bit with Cryx necrotic green. I'm a little too timid to slop some ink around and make it "glow."

Out of town next weekend, so I'll post the upcoming Slayers the week after. In the mean time, hope you're all doing well. I see that subscriptions to this blog recently ticked over the 200 mark. If you readers out there are looking for anything in particular, please let me know and I'll shuffle it into an upcoming post.

'Til next time!


  1. Well since you asked, I would love to see a detailed how-to on the weathering you've used on your Cryx. I've never used MIG products before, but I love the results on your Cryx.

  2. OK Nick. I'm rusting the three Slayers I'm working on right now, so I'll incorporate a weathering tutorial in with the next post. Thanks for the suggestion!

  3. Great job on these. I really like the necrotic green. Even though you didn't add the lighting effect, it still stands in a very nice contrast to the models.
