IT’S ALL IN RUINS! (GHOSTHAMMER PART III)

And things were going so well.

I had painted up another reaper, the five glaivewraiths from the box and another couple of chainrasps pushing up the unit to twelwe strong. I was on a roll! Maybe I could actually finish this little army of mine.








And then Kill Team came along...

It started small with testing out the new sector imperialis ruins. They turned out rather well and from there it just started to snowball. At the time of writing me and a few mates are planning a killteam campaign, I'm building a gameboard and are working in parallell on a Deathwatch killteam based on the sergeant and shotgunner I've made in the last year - and that's just one of several kill teams I'd like to cobble together.







The small number of models needed for the game is absolutely perfect for my style of painting and modelling - so I've got a feeling this will be the main 40k game for me in the foreseeable future. It'll allow you to try factions I've never messed with before, like necrons and tyrands, and using proxy rules you could field just about anything - xenos mercenaries, Adeptus Arbites, mutant uprising, renegades, navis nobilite, deathcults etc. etc.

But I'm gonna finish those damn ghosts at some point! Mark my words!

  1. Amazing! Of course I feel the struggle.. There's too much to do, as always! But damn both your new night haunt models are great (I like them even better than the first you did) and the terrain is gloriously decrepit. How do you paint the metals?

    1. Cheers!

      Yeah it's really hard to stay focused. Fortunately ( in some stange way) the Kill Team book itself isn't super inspiring - otherwise I'd be lost completely. But the premise, as well as the promise, of the game is extremely enticing.

      The ruins are undercoated black, then sprayed grey at a slight angle and finally dusted with a fine spray of skull white. The metals are painted with typhus corrosion and then drybrushed with ironbreaker. Finally I paint on some rust powder in the recesses.

  2. Great results for such a simple recipe. What rust powder do you use? It's a really cool effect. And do you paint typhus corrosin all over the metals or only in the rusted areas? Sorry for spamming you with technical questions but I can't help myself.

    1. I use a vallejo pigment. It's called rust oxide or something to that effect.

      The corrosion paint is slathered all over the metal areas.

  3. LOL.. I’m right there with ya. At least I’m not tempted by the new titan remake so maybe I’ll have a respite..

    1. Yes exactly! I, for some reason, have never had the least interest in Epic, so the release of Adeptus Titanicus feels very much like short respite from the comstant barrage of new awesome stuff. The are the new Cawdors though...

  5. Hi:)

    I really love this paint scheme. You promised somewhere that you would do a tutorial on the yellowish cloth. I am really interested. Could you explain how you did it? Even just the colors would be great!

    Thanks so much.
