NIGHT HAUNT – I

NH title

Hi everyone,

For today I have the first post of my Night Haunt project. These models are great and are responsible for me getting into AoS. They are easy to build, have loads of converting possibilities and are fairly quick to paint, each model here took around 3 hours to complete. They are also the first models in a long time I haven’t cut up and kitbashed, but I will eventually as like I said they have great potential.

First we have an image of the first one I painted to get the colours right. I went for a fleshy look to them with the use of the new wash Hexiwraith flame as the spot colour. It’s a pretty intense shade and it looks like it could glow, so I watered it down a lot and blended it in to the flesh tones. The scythes are rusty and so are the bits of chain mail, chains and bells. I used pigments for these.

Next up are some scene shots with terrain I have recently painted up. Enjoy 🙂

  1. Very nice, I like the more beige look of your ghosts. The toned down shade, and spare use of glowing shade, looks way better than what’s on the GW site. Love how the glow emanates from the bottom of the mini, giving it a spooky floating feel.

  3. Looks absolutely gorgeous! I’ve just pretty much sat and sped built an almost 3k point Nighthaunt force over 2 days… Now they’re just sat here… because I haven’t got a clue in what direction I want to take their painting.

    1. Thanks you. Yeah I saw that did that on Instagram. A modeling frenzy must have taken hold 😉 I like painting in a very limited palete as you can achieve great results fairly quickly. Choose a colour, it’s shade and a highlight. I tend to steer away from using white as a highlight and instead go for really pale greys or blues.

      1. It does remind me of Blanchitsu, the colour scheme looks more morbid and more scarier (and not cartoony).

        Just recently I’ve brought the AoS Tempest of Souls box set, and I’m really enjoying painting the Nighthaunt models, the design team have done a fantastic job designing the range.

      2. Blanchitsu all the way!! Yes thats a great box set and I nearly bought it myself the other day but other things caught my eye. The design team and GW in general are on fine form. It’s a great time to be in the hobby.

  4. Looks awesome – great choice of colours and nicely subtle compared to many I have seen. So tempted to get some of the new GW undead, but I’m saving to the new Titanicus and a Wedding soon!

    1. Cheers mate! The temptation was really strong and I caved with a big smile on my face 🙂 The new Titanicus looks great and I’ll get it eventually but I’m waiting for Rogue Trader first. A wedding hey? Congrats mate. We need to get together again soon and maybe throw a few dice.

      1. Yeah – the new Rogue Trader box does look pretty special too. Would be awesome to catch-up, but I probably won’t get chance now until after wedding so sometime in Sept would be good – hopefully it will be cooler by then – finding hard to paint at the moment with the heat!
