    Looks like the Boltspitters and Star-bucklers will be the winners in the poll, the poll will be ending in about an hour.

    Also got my flagstone texture pin from greenstuffworld a few days ago. Will be using it for my Bloodletters, now to just get the effort to sit and roll the greenstuff out.
    I keep leaning towards them as part of the Armies on Parade board, with the MediEvil remaster in the works, part of my childhood and all. It will be a rather mix and mash display but I think it would be a nice tribute to the series.

    The much larger skeletal demon is from MediEvil 2, there is a theory that it's an Archdemon to the Shadow demons (pictured left) The Demon I could use a Bloodthirster.
    There are many options for this type of board, the games had a variety of stuff. Zombies, living pumpkins, scarecrows, imps. The list is quite long.

    Some work on some Hexwraiths

    I realised there could be an easier way to do the bases with the tiles so they are not as wonky but this was just pretty much using the card from the miniature boxes. They are not stuck down yet, thinking of whether to leave them off until they are painted. Might as add a few small rocks to the bases also.

    Been painting the Shadow Demons, I forgot how much yellow paint hates me, whenever I try to paint eyes that's the only paint that goes everywhere. Will be having to do some correction work later on.

    Plus doing my thoughts on what to include on the board, I hope fans don't expect me to include the Stained Glass Demon, most iconic boss from the game from many. Can't even think of a GW model that fits...

    Now with the diorama contest going on with GW and of course gives the opportunity to use spare Seraphon models, well the theme is Dual, can be anything right?
    So I have my idea already but which of the spawnings?
    Could be either the Swamp Lizards or Coa'Xoach vs the Chaq'Kai
    Maybe revealing the appearance of the hidden spawnings showing instead a Chaq'Kai vs that. Hmmmmmm decisions

    WIP, still working out on highlighting colour, hard to choose a colour as I'm trying to keep them more dark, might have to be a very fine highlight.

    Thanks @Chicken Lips
    Given myself these hard challenges right now, did post about this AoP board on a twitter I barely run and MediEvil fans went kinda (positive) crazy about me doing a 20th anniversary board
    Seems like I'm doing it now, time for full on planning and list of stuff to buy. :artist:

    It'd look cool if you were to give maybe the unit champ (one in the unit) a cool-blue glowing blade. It'd set him apart and cause the unit to be noticed a tad more on the table top. Some object source lighting from the glowing blade would be ace!

    Also, I'd stick with cool-tone colors since a warm color (red, orange, etc) will take away from the "Shadow" element.

    Thanks @Crowsfoot and @Chicken Lips
    Cause I didn't want to go with the Xereus Purple as it seems too purple. These are purple but shaded with a blue to make them much darker
    Glowing blade sounds great, I find the unit champ hard to find so this will help. Will be keeping that one warm tone which is the yellow, as working with reference, might blend in that bit once everything is painted.
    Might have to watch some gameplay to look at the Shadow Demons better.

    I really like the base grey of the horns. I'd try to stick to that same color scheme for other "bone" areas like teeth, claws, etc. as well. A dark shade and highlights will make him look awesome.

    I have to admit, I've always detested Warriors of Chaos and Deamons of Chaos, but seeing this concept, makes me STRONGLY consider accepting the darkness! The potential is HUGE! Great work!

    Many thanks! Just been looking at them in action in the game, they also still have the grey claws there. Teeth are hard to see but the model shows them being a near white. The Artefact they have is a purple of sorts, a more lavender colour.

    May also have to paint some zombies at one point, not sure how green would work though

    Maybe base coat them a medium grey(Dawnstone?) or a light grey (Ratkin Flesh) with a dark green wash (Athonian Camoshade) for a mossy, been-buried-a-while, look, then highlighting with a lighter green (Nurgle's Rot)? That could give the appearance of a lifeless corpse that has been waiting in the shadows for an unfortunate to come by.

    Might be worth a test pilot piece.

    I am replacing the glyphs on the side of my Dread Saurian to 2 larger square ones. I'll use the round one as a Dog Tag. Skink gives a sense of size. Not nearly finished but having fun! Fitted in on the Imperial Knights size base. Lots to do!

    I will post one of the zombies I am using as reference
    Thin_Zombie_2.png A lot of green haha, they are all green. I could wait till E3 if they announce the Remaster, all depends how accurate the developers are working. I do aim to get quite a bit done before E3 but I doubt that will happen haha, got a lot to do for the board.


    Looks great so far! Love the choice of dinosaur used for the Dread Saurian
