Wow, the harlequin pattern is really great. She looks amazing... and really scary! I can't wait to see a full unit of these, flawless job!

Quick update. Been struggling with motivation and forward motivation the last couple of weeks. Anyway the Wood Elves release and the flood of podcasts it has brought have helped me over the finishing line.

Anyway here are 5 more witch Elves bringing the completed number to 11. I am going to do a few cold ones now to shake it up.

For those who asked for more details and gave such great feedback on the sister I will try to write this up when I move onto the next one.

Working away on the Cold ones. The scales are done on two of them now and about half way through a third. Really like the way they are coming along

I love that edition of the executioners minis. I don't own any but need to. You did them justice too, very nicely done.

This is really nice, all of it. Great colour combinations and beautiful painting.

Excellent work. The contrast with the cold ones and the pink is lovely.

You make me regret I went with greens instead of pink. Very, very nice.

Beautiful work - what made you go with the pink as one of your army colours, its quite unusual colour for a DE army? Nice cohesive army - well done!

Its not a huge jump from purple to the pink purple I went for. I have always liked the Slaneesh color scheme and felt it would look great when applied to a DE army in a more uniform fashion.

Thanks for all the nice feedback

Very nice work indeed! I wouldn't have thought to use pink like that - but you made it work beautifully. I just spent several enjoyable minutes looking at the whole army, thanks for posting it and I look forward to seeing more.

Whoo another update. So noticed I had missed the gems on the executioner champion so I went back and fixed that. You will have to wait for pics for that. What I did manage to get done is 3 Cold one knights.

These guys took forever...well the cold ones did. The knights actually weren't to bad.

Really happy with the way these guys have come out. Really helping me to push on with the next set of models. :)

Let me know what you think.

Lovely looking CoK's. Colour scheme works well and you have executed it nicely.

Any chance of an army to date shot?

Really nice looking :) I love the pink of the cloth and the blue scaled cold ones together.

Here is a bad army photo for you. With the size limitation of this area just not sure how I can get a particularly good one.


The Executioners at the back aren't actually in my initial army list but instead are planned as the first swap out option for the Black Guard if I fancy a change. I have only assembled one dark rider so far and actually need to do a bit more green stuff on him. There will be 6 of these. Also missing from picture are 5 Doomfire Walocks and 7 shades.

The keen eyed amongst you will notice that there are now more than 2 executioners painted. Started work on the last 3 coldones as well.

Thanks for the army shot. Looking very cohesive, which is exactly what I look for in a well painted army.
Looking forward to the next update.

Your army so far looks really striking, you really make that pink colour work well with everything else
