Looks great. It's becoming an impressive force. I had the same realisation at some point. I was always painting individual units and it always felt like slow going. Until I put everything together. At some point I calculated the points of all the painted models I could field and I got somewhere over 3.000. That felt pretty amazing. But it does sneak up on you (at least at my speed of working...).
Thanks! I really like how it looks as a whole, I think my painting style works better that way :D

Agreed. I like the brown basing, have something similar on my Wood Elves.
It took me a long time to decide on the basing, originally it was going to be snow themed, but most of my old armies had a snow base so I wanted to do something different. In my head, Chrace is a land of mountains, hills and massive pine forests and the like, so I thought a forest base would work.


So for more painting updates, my completed 6th edition shadow warriors! I love the cloaks, whoever sculpted them is a genius. Such depth!

Hope you folks enjoy, up next is more Reavers!

It looks fine Olthannon but I’d have been tempted by red.
Team red here too ! :D
I love the customization. It goes really well with your theme !

Congrats on the army shot, it looks great. As you said the photo could be better but it's still an amazing view with an awesome color scheme !

Thanks for the kind words folks!

Quick update to show off my second reaver, the musician. Three more till this first unit is completed. I also gave the first one a shield.

Enjoy!

I think I missed it but the round shields... are they from dwarf minis or somewhere else?

The round shield works great with the axe. It's a good find for the looks you're going for.

I was just taking a look and I like the colours for the Shadow Warriors, they have a suitable dark vibe.
And the axe and shield of the Ellyrian Reavers is a cool idea!

Hi Nicanor, yeah they are from the old Dwarf sprue, can't remember which ones exactly.

Thanks both, glad you enjoy them.


Another update today, just finished the Harbinger. Really happy with how this mini turned out, took a bit of extra time with the nice detail on the champion. Sadly his horsie doesn't have a tail but hopefully with some greenstuff on the way I'll fix that up.

Hope you guys enjoy.

Cheers!
