    Hey Aginor! Yeah, the lamp does make it look flatter, I'll try and figure out a better light source. Not all of them, the skink handlers I have are blue skinned with purple and red scales, the saurus warriors are a very dark blue with purple scales, and the scar-veteran on carnosaur I have is the same as the skinks. My plan was to give more special units differing color schemes, astrolith is purple, skink starpriest might be a blue.green, eternity warden might be green. The three main colors I'm using are purple, blue, and green for the army. I was hoping to kind of split them into three major groups based on that color but it's becoming more difficult to organize it that way.

    Hey everyone, just an update on what I'm working on. My Balewind Vortex came in and it has been a blast to paint! Not done yet but I'm getting fairly close to it. I know it's not technically a Seraphon model but it's themed after them and will definitely be used by Kroak. I'm still sitting on a Bastiladon but I'm not touching that until I get an airbrush set up. Finally I want to get your opinion on something, I've got $70 in store credit at a hobby shop I got to. I'm debating between getting more Seraphon models, maybe get 2 skink boxes to get that block of 40, or I have been thinking of dipping my toes into 40k and making a Salamanders chapter army, I watch a YouTube series called If The Emperor Had A Text to Speech Device and I absolutely love Primarch Vulkan and his Salamander Chapter. What do you all think? Thanks for reading!

    Buy Seraphon!

    Your BWV looks nice so far. Are you going to paint the stone and metal parts of the base like the ones on the platform?

    Hey Aginor and Crowsfoot thanks for the reply! I might try and do something a bit different for the base, I want the places the skulls rest on to remain black and I'm going to paint the metal parts silver again. What I'm running into is should I paint the skulls blue again, or should I paint them as regular skulls? As well as should I paint the stones that are jutting out from the base as purple again or as stone colors so that it would match the ground usually. I'm not too sure on either one yet.

    Done! The Balewind Vortex is complete. This is definitely one of the most fun models I have painted. All of my Seraphon stuff, excluding a box of Knights I'm trying to get rid of and the Bastiladon, are painted. Maybe now I should finish my Stormcast Eternal models...or maybe my Khorne models. We'll see what happens. Either way thanks for reading and hope you enjoy.

    I'm more of a fan of a firey vortex, but that looks exceptional
