Finishing the Blood Sisters

I decided to use the contrast paints on the Blood Sisters.  I am quite happy with the way they came out. I did do 2 coats, as just 1 gave inconsistency across the full body.

I did paint them with the armour plates off and the heads off.

Bases finished

That’s all the bases finished for now. Originally I had not planned to get anymore Daughters of Khaine, as they are for a medusa project, but with Warcry coming out I will now be adding a few more units.

All told, going for a Table top standard with using contrast paints it took about 5-6 hours to finish the Cauldron of Blood.

Before starting to put together the rest of the Melusai, I thought it was best to finish the Cauldron of Blood. This will also be the 1st project were Contrast paints have been used with other paints.

I did try to do a update from my phone like the previous one but it did not like adding the photo’s :3

This project got packed away along with the rest of my computer/painting room, when we had some internal building work done. While the computers and paints came back out of the boxes the temple nest did not. Then the list of Warcry warbands was released showing that Daughters of Khaine will get cards.

So this project is back.

I have got the base colours on to the cauldron of blood and started with the details

Going for the blue and red look for the boss

Once I had started with the red, I realized that the blood drops would not show up very well. So now I will be with this one. Once I had started with the red, I realized that the blood drops would not show up very well. So now I will be with this one.

I have been working on putting together the cauldron of blood to a point were it can be painted. I do plan on painting it in parts. I have also  used magnets on the blood and a base so that the bloodwrack can be on or off the cauldron of blood

I have also modified the avatars base to fit.

Painting progress has been slow this week because of planning out how the build and paint the cauldron of blood.

Ink work has been done.Ink work has been done.

The original plan for the cauldron of blood was to use magnets but the Avatar is too big, with small contact points for the magnets. So I have made a base topper that is the same as the cauldron top.

When I have used Green Stuff’s rollers before I have used them for all the base, but this time I wanted a more ruined look. So planed to make sheets to break up.

I also when with different thickness of sheets. Some with square edges and some with rough edges. Because of this I am using air dry clay.

1st bit rollered and cut square

This one had section that were thinner than others so I cut out the bit that did not have a inprint. Making sure the sheet is all of the same thickness is important.

Next is letting them dry. I have found that air dry clay will carl as it dry due to the top drying faster than the bottom. To stop this i use weights.  Next is letting them dry.

That’s the 1st box put together. I have been thinking about how to do the base’s.

As I am planing to use them for a RPG too, I am planning to go with a Greek thame, so I picked up a Green Stuff World’s Greek rolling pin. I have used there rolling pin’s before so plan to take lots of photo’s for everyone to see.

For the 1st box of Melusai I put them together as Blood Stalkers, as that’s what I needed for a RPG game I am running. Eventually I will be making 10 Blood stalkers and 10 Blood Sisters.

I was not expecting to get a full Cauldron of Blood so that is a bonus. I was not expecting to get a full Cauldron of Blood so that is a bonus.
This is what I had been expecting.This is what I had been expecting.

I went a little bit overboard with my buying when I needed a few medusa’s for a game. I have been looking at GW’s Melusai and Khinerai for some time. So used my need as a reason to buy the Temple Nest set.

There are a few member’s of my local club that play AOS. So I may end up getting a playable army. Espassaly as I have a very large collection of Dark Elves that can stand in for the basic troops.

So the first thing I did was have a look for unusual snake colours for ideas for painting.
