Nephilim Protector

I really like the aesthetics of the Legion Nephilim warbeasts and the Protector is no exception.  The large expanses of armor were a bit daunting at first but I wound up giving them a similar treatment as my Warmongers, but instead of the flat black inner armor I went with a very dark metallic.  I think the result looks great on this sculpt.

Blighted Nyss Legionnaires

The Blighted Nyss Legionnaires are poster-children for how I grew unhappy with my Legion color scheme.  Technically speaking I was pleased with how my Legionnaires turned out.  But on the tabletop they just blended together in to a black and blue mass.  The color scheme - originally picked out to be cold and hard and evoke the Nyss' wintery homeland - wound up just not lending itself to pop on the tabletop.

Absylonia, the Terror of Everblight

Absylonia sports quite a bit of detail that takes painting well.  She's very similar to the Forsaken in that respect - made up of different design elements of different models.  It makes her relatively easy to paint as there's not really anything "new" to the Legion about her but the discord of her design stands out on the tabletop.

Nephilim Soldier

I tried something a little bit different with the Nephilim here compared with the rest of my early beasts. Instead of using a Sky Blue to highlight my Midnight Blue I use for a base coat I went with Rain Grey, hoping the result would be slightly more muted when compared with the Carnivean and the others. I think the experiment was a success, and the more detailed musculature on the Nephilim here really brought out the difference.

Carnivean

Ah, the Carnivean. If not for the lack of opposable thumbs, he would overran the lowlands and rid Immoren of Everblight's enemies long ago.

Carnivean

For my second Carnivean I decided to change up its pose in two ways - I placed the head on facing forward instead of to the side (filing and greenstuffing the neck to accomodate this change) and I put a wrecked bonejack on the base under his front foot. Minor changes overall but just enough to make my two Carniveans easily differentiated on the table.

Seraph

Although I like the new bend in the wings I gave my second seraph, quality wise I don't think the paint job lives up to his older brother. I was trying to add some more definition to the musculature and the end result looks more unpolished than anything else.

Seraph

This seraph was the first non-battlebox beast that I painted.  I wanted to get it on the table and use it but I didn't want to affix it to the base before I painted it queued up next out of necessity. The Seraph is painted just like the rest of my beasts with the exception of the wings, which didn't have any precedent yet.  I wound up going with a darker blue, similar to the color I used for the nyss' leather.

Strider Deathstalkers

Even though they suffer the "2D" affliction that's affected many of Privateer's recent sculpts, I do like the Deathstalker models. Plenty of cloak to play with blending cloth on and enough different surfaces that even a monochromatic scheme can be executed without looking boring.

Blighted Ogrun Warmonger War Chiefs

Enough time had past since I painted my initial Warmongers that I was worried about being able to match their skin tones, but the War Chiefs turned out pretty close when I was done with them. That's one of the biggest hurdle I've come cross as my Legion army grows - matching blends I did on previous models.
