Empire of the Dead Vampire Faction part 1

Finally got rid of the lurgy to get a good painting session in Saturday night and Sunday. Finished two bat swarms and the three Thralls from the Vampire boxed set. The bats where quite easy really various drybrushes of browns and greys followed by a dark wash and another lighter drybrush of grey and they where done.


The three Thralls where basecoated, I ended up changing the colour of the ones grey/blue jacket as it was throwing me off and was much happier with the three once it was done.





Changed the jacket on this the grey was to much.


The first five members just the characters to do next.

    1. Thanks Michael, I've not had to paint many creatures before so it was a lot of fun especially on such characterful pieces.

  11. Nice to see you working on a new faction Simon. I wasn't fond of the vampire faction wen I first saw them, but your paint job on the thralls is endearing them to me.

    1. Thank you! Robert. I do know where your coming from with that its partly the reason they where the last set I bought. I've just got the zombies to get and a few of the G&J's to get from the first wave.

      I've seen some nicely done alternatives. I may still do a couple myself.

    2. The Zombies are great! They and the gentlemen where my first choices.
