Army of the Month: February

Late installment of the second month of the Army of the Month project.  But as they say:

It's not how you start, it's about how you finish.



Read on for the details and what I plan for painting


Model list:

30 Liberators

9 Prosecutors

9 Liberators

1 of each:

Lord Castellant
Lord Celestant on Dragoth
Lord Relictor

This allows me to play the " Thunderstrike Brotherhood" Warscroll thing, which allows most of my units to "deep strike" and be deployemnt in -hopefully- advantageous positions in any of my movement phase.

The Dragoth dude is quite powerful, but where he really shine is his Hero power, that prevents battleshock.

That's about as far into the gameplay of AoS I've went into, sadly.  So here goes the painting plan

As explained in the video, I'm going for a " Pretty from afar but far from pretty" type of look.  It's also something I've called the overnight army, because that's how simple it is sometimes.

For the average model:
Undercoat black
Gold spary paint ( airbrush/shaker can, not sure yet )
Alaitoc blue shield, cloaks and hair thing.  I might highlight bigger surfaces with Hoeth blue
Silver on some details
Zandru Dust on the scrolls and the skeleton banner guy ( I'm good with names and description)
Ulthuan Grey on the Stormcast symbols

The dragoth I'll probably paint with Skavenblight Dinge and highlight with a 50/50 mix of Ushabti Bone

Army painter Strong tone Quickshade on the whole thang like there's no tomorrow.

For the bases,   something like cork the make rocks easy, and then get a lava thing going  with orange and yellow.

For more pop, I might airbrush a simple OSL on the models from the lava.

Simple and effective.  Also, soon for sale.

No excuses, hobby like a champion!
