Painting Abyssal Seductress Model from Mantic Games for Kings of War Vanguard

I continue to work on finishing my Abyssal Warband for Kings of War Vanguard.  This time, I painted a Seductress.

This is a command model for the warband and has some interesting skills that will hopefully be fun to use in a game.

I like the look of the model and am especially please with the hearts she is holding in her hand.

I only have 1 more model to paint for this project and look forward to moving on to the next one.

Painting Abyssal Despoiler model from Mantic Games for Kings of War Vanguard

I'm nearing the end of my Abyssal Warband project.  I finished an Abyssal Despoiler for the warband and it is a real beast.

This model counts as "large" so I won't be able to use many in the army, but he looks to be strong enough that his presence will be noticed even if he is alone.

I'm pleased with how this model turned out and look forward to seeing how he works out on the table.

This is my 26th model for the warband and I only have 2 models left to paint.






Painting Abyssal Hellequin and Hellequin Blood-masque Models from Mantic Games for Kings of War Vanguard

Any warband could benefit from some cavalry units in their group.  I painted some Hellequin models to add some strength to my warband and a Hellequin Blood-masque to serve as a mounted command unit.

The Hellequins are support units, so as with the gargoyles and lukers, I can only use a couple of these in my warband. 

I didn't really care for the look of the paint job suggested, so I went with a little different look.  I like what I came up with and think these will look nice with the rest of the warband.

These bring my total to 25 models completed for Nick's New Year Painting Challenge.  I only have 3 more models to paint for the project.

With the warband nearly finished, I'm looking forward to actually getting a game played soon.

Painting Abyssal Succubus Lurker models from Mantic Games for Kings of War Vanguard

I continue to work on my Kings of War Vanguard Abyssal Warband.  This week I put the finishing touches on a group of Succubus Lurker models.

These are another support option for the warband, so I won't be able to include a lot of these, but they will give me a little more variety in army selection.

I like the look of these models, but I'm not 100% happy with how they turned out.  They are a little darker than the other models from the warband.  I'm not certain why that is, but since these are supposed to be sneaking around in the shadows, I just go with them.

I've now finished 22 models of the warband and have only 6 more to go.  Among the remaining models are several characters and a "monster" so they should go quickly and be fun to paint.

Painting Abyssal Gargoyle models from Mantic Games for Kings of War Vanguard

I've added some Gargoyle models to my Kings of War Vanguard Abyssal Warband.

These models are support models so I can only include a limited number in my warband.  They have fly which will give them a fair amount of mobility on the table.  Their regeneration should also help to keep them alive.

These models only have a single pose and I wish they some variation, but I like the way they look.

Painting Abyssal Guard models from Mantic Games for Kings of War Vanguard

I've finished some Abyssal Guard models to add to my Abyssal Warband for Kings of War Vanguard.

These are classed as warriors in the game and will add some additional combat strength to the warband.  These also have regeneration, so that should help to keep them going in battle even after they have taken some damage.

I wish these models had a little more variety in their poses, but I still like the look of them.

Painting Succubus Models from Mantic Games for Kings of War Vanguard

A batch of Succubus models have found their way to my paint table.  These are the next models for my Kings of War Vanguard Abyssal Warband.

These models are classed the the warriors in the rules and will give my warband a little more combat prowess.  They also have stealth, so hopefully they can get into combat without suffering too much from ranged attacks.

The models look good and I like the variety of weapon combinations on these models.

What do you think?
