Keldrek - Knight of Shrouds (Malign Portents)

Postby sjjones » 10 Feb 2018, 15:49

Couldn't resist earlier with collecting my pre-order of Legions of Nagash.

Will update this thread as he gets built.

So reasonably easy to assemble, but some green stuff needed to plug gaps with the base. Certainly a great looking mini.

For anyone else building this model, I would also suggest finding something to weigh it down - it's a little top heavy and falls easy. I've managed to plug the gap using some spare bits I had lying around... I found a few spare nuts and a couple of washers to fit within the base gaps. Will be covering these with some more green stuff too.

Used a white spray primer before applying base coats. Detail on rocks on the base done. Coat of Nihilakh Oxide on the main part of the model too to start the ghost effect effect - this is where the white primer really helps.

Some tidy up and started to layer him a bit now. Also done a bit of work to the ghost bits too - will need some white highlights after. Pleased with how he is coming out.

Gave Keldrek some quality brush time tonight, really pleased with the result now. Added some little details such as corrosion etc and based him. Only thing to do is seal him :)

Finally completed. Matte sealer with a cover of ardcoat on the ghostly bits which smoothed it off and gives a bit of a shine which I like on my nighthaunt models. Also some highlights on edges etc.

Looks good!

Why don’t people acknowledge other people’s work on here?

It’s so dead :roll:

Awesome model that one! All this Malign Portents talk is really making me want to pick up an AOS start collecting box!

I've got to agree with Si! so quiet around the WIP Forum.

Thanks Si,

To be fair, not been a lot of activity with WIP in general. A shame really, but then I guess it comes and goes. None the less, still quite like browsing over the posts every now and then for inspiration :)

Do it! I really enjoy AoS, just wish a few more folks would play it at the club - always a pain with it to some extent with limited transport on the bike - so can't bring both 40k and AoS... The starter sets are a great way to start out too.

Thanks man :) Would love to build up a nighthaunt army when money and time allows too.
