Warhammer Underwear: The Farstriders

My arms are acting up again. (Curse you, painfully inflamed carpal tunnel ligament-thingies!)

So I will have to put painting a bit on the back burner for the immediate future until the pain clears up again. Hopefully soon…


But I was able to finish the Shadespire Farstriders, the Stormcast Vanguard-Hunters variants. Basically Cybermen with pistols. And a bird.




These ended up being a bit lazy uninspired. I found them to be slighty too busy, and that made them just a bit tedious to paint. So I dropped the superdetaling and rather just finished them off to get them done.  A “Tabletop+” paint job would be the shorthand, I think.

I went with the same general colour scheme I used on the Steelheart’s Champions, and that I probably will be using for my Stormcast Eternal army, if I ever get around to painting it.



Sanson Farstrider. The Birdman, and the leader of the warband. I did Polly the Aetherwing as a blue/gold parrot. Sanson likes to feed it Crackers.



Elias Swiftblade.  Space Marine Scout with combat knife and bolt pistol, ahem, Stormcast Eternal Vanguard-Hunter with Storm Sabre and Boltstorm Pistol.



Almeric Eagle-Eye. The classic Hero pose with foot on rock stump.


These cybermen are well hard, with only three miniatures to a warband. The Goblins were nine minatures!

Bonus: The Walking Dead All Out War objectives

These have been a long time coming, lying around half painted for ages and cluttering up my painting space. So I decided to finish them off. Simple stuff but nevertheless effective.

These are Objectives representing supplies to be searched, scavenged and fought over in the game.
