Ghost Stories – Part 5

A couple of weeks ago I painted up a warband of Nighthaunt for Warcry. By the time it was finished I had seven Chainrasps, almost enough for a squad should I ever fancy expanding the collection into an Age of Sigmar army. Of course if I wanted to do that I’d need another three, and sure enough here they are.

Horus Heresy fans will recognise this one for its famous impersonation of Iron Hands’ primarch Ferrus Manus!

And here we have them, a full squad of ten little ghosts.

These aren’t the last ghosts on the painting desk either so expect to see a few more pop up soonish.

    Great work once again, I especially love how the swords came out

  • theimperfectmodeller

    Excellent as always. An awesome group for sure. 🙂

    Lovely stuff mate, I really like these. You know, looking at them together, I’d be tempted to put a little of that spooky green on the base where the minis touch the ground, just to give a subtle bit of OSL…

  • Pete S/ SP

    Those are great- I really like them. Inspired me to keep, rather than sell, the ones I have and get some paint on them.

    I particularly like the one holding its own (presumably it is its own) skull. Was that your own conversion or does the miniature come that way?

    • Wudugast

      Cheers! Yeah, that one tickled me too. I presume it’s his head but as he’s clearly lost his head how would he know? Maybe he’s unwittingly picked up someone else’s head and is wandering around with it?
      It’s not a conversion, the model just comes like that. It’s one of the ones from the Warhammer Underworld’s set.

      • Ann

        That’s true, could be a replacement head as easily as being its own. I wasn’t sure about the sculpt but I had to ask because this sort of thing is something I’d definitely see you doing as a conversion.

      • Wudugast

        Well, to be honest it’s the sort of thing I’d have wanted to convert and would have poured a lot of thought and effort into finding a way to do if GW hadn’t had the courtesy to just make it and save me the job. That’s really the story of most of my conversions these days, I’m no longer compelled to convert things just because, it’s more a case of trying to make the things I can see in my mind’s eye but for which models don’t yet exist. If there’s a perfectly good model for it already then that’s fine by me. 

      • Ann

        That makes sense, though despite all of that when I think of you and your work, you’re “That Guy Who Does the Great Conversions” in my model lizard brain.

  • Kuribo

    I still really like the color scheme on these ghosts. It really catches the eye. I also appreciate how the members of this squad look coherent but are still unique from each other at the same time which is really what all of us wargamers want!

    • Wudugast

      Thank you! Yeah, I have a bit of an obsession with making sure that every member of a squad is unique but that the overall result looks coherent. I don’t think these would be too easy to convert though so I’m glad whoever designed them took the same attitude! 😀

  • patmcf

    Love them mate ! I still cant get over that amazing result you have achieved with the blues and brilliant green!

    • Wudugast

      Thank you! I’m really pleased with how this colour scheme has worked out actually, it’s relatively straightforward and the results look good (so the best of both worlds!). I’ve found a few more ghosts which were haunting the bottom of a storage box, I’ll try to get them painted up soon(-ish!).

Speak, damn you!
