Shadespire Stormcast Eternals


I was very excited to see Games Workshop release Shadespire. From time to time I have considered painting an army (Blood Angels or High Elves, naturally 😉 ) in order to play the games but the reality is that I know I’d probably lose interest before the first unit was painted! I can definitely paint three miniatures to a reasonable standard in a sensible time frame though, so Shadespire got my attention.

I have previously painted Stormcast in white armour and I wanted to try a slightly different take for these miniatures, so I made use of the Warcolours blue grey set to achieve a colder finish.

I’m fairly happy with how these have turned out considering the time spent. (Around 10 hours per miniature, which is seriously fast compared to the other projects I’ve been doing recently!) I’ve made a painting guide to see if there’s any interest in a slightly less than super high end display standard.

  1. Those look great! Clean and regal 😉 I am right there with you! I love the skellys and am painting them up as they are fun little dudes. I love the idea of the skirmish games. I will likely never play them but the little boxed sets of minis are awesome to work on!

    1. Yes, it is easier to get a smooth finish but you need to be aware that they behave quite differently to Citadel or Vallejo paints so it can take a bit of getting used to. Basecoating really requires either an airbrush or adding some flow improver to the paint. Beyond that you can apply the paint to the miniature quite thick and then you have time to blend it on the surface before it dries or you can smooth it out with a damp brush.
