The Grymwatch

The Ghouls, aka the Flesh-Eater Court faction’s warband was the first to be released seperately for Beastgrave, the third season of the Warhammer Underworld game, apart from the warbands in the Beastgrave game set that is.

As soon as I saw these, I knew I had to have them. Still, it took me several months after building and undercoating them until I got around to actually painting them. Much like most minis I compulsively buy. I still have first and second season warbands to paint…and most of a ghoul king army…

I did these in the same sitting as the Reaper Bones Hungering Dead. Luckily, ghouls can be really quickly painted with good results.

These I had undercoated black with white zenithal when I first bought them, before standing around gathering dust for a few months.

Duke Crakmarrow is ostensibly the leader even though he has no cape. Serious foot on rock, though. And the larger 32mm base.


The Duke’s Harriers, his pet bats. Where he gets the batshit to go with his crazy. 32mm base.


Valreek the Tracker. With uncovered female details, creepy Ringu-hair and all. 25mm base.


The Night’s Herald. Let’s hope he doesn’t go down like a total punk, as the Night’s King did. 25mm base.



The Royal Butcher. Taking the concept of Meat Hooks slightly too far. 25mm base.



Master Talon. Looking guiltily up from his little unsanctioned snack break. 25mm base.


Gristlewel the Greatsword. Magically induced delusions are powerful things. For example, they let a bludeoning giant femur cleave it’s victims in twain just like a giant sword would do! 25mm base.


These I painted using several different contrast paints and shades over the zenithal undercoat. When dry I lightly drybrushed the topmost bits, did the details and bases, and done! All in one sitting. Black eyesockets with a single white dot for eyes make them really creepy and evil looking.


Looks like meat’s back on the menu, lads!
