Thanks for all the comments!

To be honest I wasn't 100% happy with them, but seeing all the positive feedback is nice Smile

As I said, I'm painting the Mortifex now and I'll need some advice. I thought that he would look best, if I paint his robes with 3 different colors:
- his "skirt" (lower part of body) is purple - just like with Necromaguses (Vallejo 70.960 "Violet")
- his main robe is really dark blue (Vallejo 70.899 "Dark Prussia Blue")
- armor is of course black

And now I don't have an idea for his "scarf" (part hanging from one hand to the other). What do you all think? What color would look good and keep with White Walker / Ancient Roman theme? I thought about a red for a while, but it could make too big of a contrast.

Good painting! I'd see a bit more highlights on the skin and on the dark armour, but still they are fine Smile

You could try a bit more colors on the Mortifex skin to add more weirdness to him, some purple and red glazes in different places, maybe some red close to the eyes et cetera Smile So he won't be just plain blue.

About the scarf - maybe we'll talk in real and discuss it Smile

And last but not least you have a really nice idea for the army Smile
It will be great to fight against them, especially that mine Reavers are inspired in the wildlings / Free People from GoT, as you know my Tyrant is named ThoRmund the DestRoyeR Wink And the Cyclops can be my version of Giant Wink

Our battles will be awesome...
Once we'll paint our armies Tongue

Damn, I hate photos, they're getting the worst out of minis :/

Anyway, here's totally not Night King himself:

[Image: IMG_20160710_174328_HDR_zps6xwzxg2j.jpg?t=1468079472]

Decided to went with red scarf after all. And dark blue, after applying wash, got almost purple. Curious.

[Image: IMG_20160710_174359_HDR_zpswtavyjab.jpg?t=1468079501]

After all, I'm quite happy how he turned out. Camera doesn't give justice to my models Tongue

And whole White Walker squad:

I think they blend in just nicely with the rest of the force:

[Image: IMG_20160710_174536_HDR_zpsz8nswiro.jpg?t=1468079513]

What's next? Definitely some undead stuff, but I haven't decide yet with one - big or small Wink

Dammit, it's been over a month :O Time to go back from the dead!

I may have been quiet for a time, nut that didn't mean I haven't paint anything. Apart from the other game (Infinity to be precise) I started painting the Legio Mortum troopers.

Rotten, rusted, decaying backbone of any Magistratum army. They were quite nice models to paint to be honest, I had much joy with them:

[Image: IMG_20160822_193302_HDR_zpszdzwgo6o.jpg?t=1471801964]

And four of them even got 360 pics:

[Image: IMG_20160822_193425_HDR_zpslogviolm.jpg?t=1471801945]

Big thanks to Kędzior for tips and tricks for painting rust and battle damage!

Also, mages got another skin colour. Less shiny blue, more icy cold:

[Image: IMG_20160822_193521_HDR_zpsvnswhho6.jpg?t=1471801869]

Mortifex has so flat face that I simply treat it as a mask Tongue But on Necromagus's you can see that this skin is better then previous one. I like it a lot.

And whole Magistratum painted so far:

[Image: IMG_20160822_193120_HDR_zpsdvpqrkjr.jpg?t=1471802035]

I know - it's not a lot. But I promised to myself that I won't paint another Godslayer mini until I paint all the Legio Mortum. 6 done, 14 to go Tongue

Nice to see your Legion growing (after every battle there are few more zombies to revive, no? Wink ).
The new blue is really cool, you pulled it off well Smile

Good luck with the rest of Zombies and remember - we are waiting for something sepcial.
Something BIGGER.

Damn, another month :O Well, to be honest, for the last two weeks I hadn't had the time to make some pictures.

Anyway, another 7 Legio Mortum are done:

[Image: IMG_20160925_203212_HDR_zpskdhrtujv.jpg?t=1474743867]

[Image: IMG_20160925_203225_HDR_zpshihkbnpp.jpg?t=1474743900]

[Image: IMG_20160925_203244_HDR_zpsm06ktf75.jpg?t=1474743892]

[Image: IMG_20160925_203300_HDR_zpsltkyyudw.jpg?t=1474743886]

13 done, 7 to go. This means that I have one fully painted unit:

[Image: IMG_20160925_203408_HDR_zpsdofxntxo.jpg?t=1474743874]

With some luck I should have fully painted Legion and Magistratum by the end of the year. Wish me luck Wink
