I ain’t afraid of no ghosts – although actually, I probably should have been. Before I tackled the Spirit Host model several people warned me what an absolute nightmare it is to assemble and you know what, they weren’t wrong! Lots of tiny fiddly joins, lots of weight resting on very small connection points – generally they were a huge faff but I got there in the end. After that painting it was easier, it wasn’t quite a case of “just dunk it in a bucket of Hexwraith flame and call it done”, there was also all the careful highlighting that came after – along with holding my breath and praying that none of those fiddly joins broke (again…). Still a lovely miniature but a real exercise in frustration at times!
Now whilst I think I’m quite justified in worrying about building and painting more Spirit Hosts at least I had no need to fear the (Grimgast) Reaper, which turned out to be very straightforward to paint and which I hammered through in short order.
With these two done I’ve just got a Banshee to fill out this warband, plus the Crypt Infernal to complete the ghouls and we’re golden. The weekend is looking a bit busier than planned but all being well I should find a spare hour or two to attack them, otherwise they’ll be my focus for an evening or two next week.
