Boo! Seems like ghosts was what was needed for me to get out of my hobby slump!

I've been painting away the last couple of days and have managed to finish off five more chainrasps including the Dreadwarden champion, one reaper and the Spirit torment. Not speedpainting these guys either, though I do the chainrasps four at a time, so I think that's a pretty good haul for four days work.

Here's the chainrasps. Only a few more model needed for a minimum sized unit - I'm aiming for 15 to start with and keep the rest for conversions.

Here's what the Dreadwarden looks like just after he's recieved the undercoats.

There's three of them: I begin with a standard chaos black undercoat, then a lighter Zandri dust one on top of that that and finally a zenithal light white spray. After that I bring out the toothbrush and spatter the model with watered down mix of black and rhinox hide and then the washing and drybrushing commences.

And here's the first Grimghast Reaper:

Really pleased with how this one turned out. Its slightly converted by adding some spikes/nails hammered into his/its back, but apart from that its pretty much out of the box. These guys are just insane amounts of fun to paint.

Last but not least we have the Spirit Torment. Now this is one cool miniature but I felt there were a few things I wanted to adjust. To begin with I added a tombstone from the old zombie kit that connects with one of the tendrils of cloth to stabilise him somewhat. The original model only attaches to the base with one long thin strand of cloth which made the model sort of wobbly and springy. Any small movement made it vibrate which: A) makes it hard to paint and B) doesn't look very cool on the battlefield (I prefer my models static thank you very much). 
I also added some spikes and replaced the lock with some hooks from an old marauder.  I felt dragging victims screaming back to Hell using flesh-hooks was a tad grimmer than whacking them over the head with an oversized padlock. What I like about the Nighthaunt faction (apart from the miniatures) is that they're basically an army from Hell, so I want to play up the tormented cenobite angle whenever possible.

Then I painted it. It came out alright but there was something off...

I decided to repaint the carapace as I simply didn’t like the brass parts - rusty iron and steel seems to work best on these guys. Here's a crappy pic of what that looks like - I'm going to get some better pics of the final model.

Stay tuned! There's plenty more spooky stuff coming up!


  1. Beautifully done - I really dig those!

    1. Cheers mate! As do I!

    2. I want to give a testimony on how I was cured from herpes ii virus after using Doctor Patrick liquid herbal medicines for one month only, i found about Doctor Patrick on newspaper, I had to take his email and phone number and then contacted him, I explained everything to him and he assured me that he can help me and I will be free from this infection forever. He sent me the medicines and I started using according to his instructions, after two weeks of using the medicines, I saw great changes, I continued using the medicine until I used it all for one month, I was cured totally, no more symptoms and I went for another diagnosis, the Doctor gave me my test result and it came out negative, I want to thank God for making this come true and I want to thank Doctor Patrick for what he has done for me, contact this herbal doctor on and whatsApp number is +2348021312463.

  2. Very nice indeed - the brown robes work really well on them.

  3. The Dreadwarden is my favorite <3 I mean, it brings a candelabra on the battlefield! And it's very well painted!

    Interesting technique. I love the "dirty the colours and then wash" method too, it's so much fun when you have to make dirty models!
    But looking at the Spirit Torment, did you paint the black with actual paints or with nuln oil? The transition is so smooth! How did you do that?

    By the way, with the colour scheme you're using, rust is indeed better than blue oxide.

    1. Thanks!

      I blended the robe just using slightly thinned down black paint and dragging the brush in the direction of the transition - as the brush looses paint along the way you end up with a smoth blend.

  4. Those are gorgeous. Love the models, trying to figure out how I can use them in 40k. ;)

    1. Well... I’ve got plenty ideas for that, but I’m trying to stay focused on building the army.

      The most obvious 40k application is converting them into mechanicvm gribblies - something along the lines of my old Adept Prokofiev from all the way back in 2013:

  5. More fantastic work, Johan! The small tweaks to the Spirit Torment are quite lovely -- I am getting such a Mhorrigoti vibe from those dangling hooks on chains for some reason.

    And your small conversion also has the added benefit of giving you the lock and key bitz to use on some kind of INQ28 conversion at a later date -- they did seem such Inquisitorial bitz to me, even when I first saw the new Nighthaunt models ;)

    Anyway, fantastic work! :)

    1. Cheers Krauty!
      I’ve nicked quite a few ideas from my old Mhorrigot miniatures, what with the nails in their backs and general vibe. The flesh hooks only felt proper in that context. Interestingly padlocks are often used in mhorrigotii symbolism so it all goes full circle..

  6. Loving this stuff. Thanks for the painting insights.

  7. Great color scheme, I love the look of your ghosts! Can I ask how you painted the brown cloth? Thanks

    1. Cheers! I’m going to do a tutorial on the cloth soon so stay tuned...

    2. Looking forward to this, would love a step by step. Lovely work

  8. Hi Johan, not to be a dick, but could I bother you for some tips on the cloak? Got an old school chaos champion with long robes next in the painting queue and I would love to give your technique a go!

    1. Haha! No worries!

      What do you want to know specifically - I do describe the general technique in the article?

    2. Damn, I missed your reply. But I'm interested in color choices especially, I really like the brownish yellow you've got going on and I'm wondering what paints you used? And just, you know, a bit more on your general technique - several thin washes or a few heavy ones, do you finish or start with drybrush etc? Thanks for replying :)

    3. I'd like to second a request for the colours used. It's just so perfect, I'd love to have a try.

  10. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

  12. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.

  13. I'm so Happy to write this article because I know it will help a lot of people who are suffering from Herpes. I am here to testify about the wonderful and most safe cure for herpes . I was positive to the deadly Virus called herpes and I lost hope completely because I was rejected even by my closest friends. I searched online to know and inquire about a cure for herpes and I saw testimony online on how Herbalist called Dr Osamu who cured so many people from Herpes virus and other similar diseases. I decided to contact the great herbalist because I know that nature has the power to heal everything. I contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will help me with the natural roots and herbs. After 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure is ready and he sent it to me via UPS and it got to me after 4 days. I used the medicine as he instructed (morning and evening ) and I got cured. it's really like a dream but I'm so happy that's the reason i decided to also add more comment of Him so that more people can be saved just like me and if you need his help, contact him via Email: or WhatsApp:+2349012406016
