Shadows Over Hammerhal feels like I haven't finished a painting project in a long time. And when I look back, it's true. Well, finally off the painting table is the first batch of 10 figures from the new Warhammer Quest game, Shadows Over Hammerhal.

I started with the Bloodreavers. Here they are assembled and based on some resin inserts.

Hammerhead is different than Silver Tower, in that it uses a GM to run the game. Not sure how that will go down with the game group. Well, we'll time...once all the damn figures are painted!

Assembled figures were primed white, as usual.

And then they got the floor wax treatment.

To speed things up, I sprayed on the skin tones, and some dark brown for the pants.

Then I worked on the skin for a bit. Basic wash, and some bruising around the scars.

Large areas of base colours went down next. Red and metal, mostly. Also worked on the bases at this point.

Then came all the detail and finishing work (including some highlight passes on the skin). Once everything was done, I dropped the resin base inserts into the base blanks (thanks Cool Mini Or Not). And the first enemies of the Hammerhal set are complete.

At the same time, I painted this Slaughterpriest figure that came with the relaunch issue of White Dwarf last September.

Pretty cool figure, actually, and you can use it in Silver Tower.

 Well, that's all for today.

'Til next time.


  1. They look great Kevin! Your bruising effect is superb!

  2. Nice work! The way you did the scars looks great!
