Or, as they are known to most, Magore’s Fiends from the Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire game. It’s actually really, really good! The game is fast-paced, noob-friendly but deep enough, and cheap to pick up – although you’d probably want to have all expansions just for the cards.
So, with that in mind, here are my paintjobs for one of the last to have been released warbands.
First up we have Mr. Magore himself. I have elected to paint him up just like the rest of my Chaos models, in a colour scheme I first used on a Beastmen army years back (and whose whereabouts are currently unknown to me…).
Old colour scheme means old paints! For instance, I used macharius solar orange on the armour, scorched brown on things like the bases and the fur, and trusty blood red on this cloak. Likewise, the skin was painted tallarn flesh, dwarf flesh and elf flesh.
Unlike my old Beastmen, I did decide to add some more colour to the palette, so I used a sotek green – temple guard blue – baharroth blue triad on some spot details. I think this came out best on Magore’s chest cavity.
Finally, I opted to do something a little different with the flesh hound, so I used that spot colour as the basis of its colour scheme. The colours were successively drybrushed over a dark blue undercoat and finally glazed with coelia greenshade. I did go back in to highlight a few key areas with baharroth blue. Incidentally, the glowing effect on the eyes was completely unintentional and a happy byproduct of my clumsiness – I had painted the eyes white and skipped, so I decided to turn it yellow. I used an old brush to then apply a casandora yellow glaze, but applied way too much, flooding the entire eye socket. It ended up looking like this entirely by accident!
Hope you liked this post! I’m going to have a big update on a little Ancients project soon, so stay tuned.
