Cult of Khaine Warhammer Army Blog

This blog is dedicated to my Dark Elf Warhammer army - The Cult of Khaine.

I have been collecting and painting models for the past couple of years in particular the games workshop warhammer dark elves. These are my favourite minatures out of their range and over the time I have amassed a rather large army. I thought it would be a good idea to blog my development of the army as It evolves to keep a record of my ideas and to showcase the models when I finish them. I will be posting various images, comments and links as I go and would love to hear any comments you have.

Finished the board

Well the board is now done after lots of dry brushing.

Final steps included a matt seal then painting water effects over the sea area.

A fairly quick job this one and looks great with the army on it. I will post more photos wen I get the chance. Can't believe I have finished this army after 2 years of painting it.

And the finished board from the top down.

Base Coating

Next stage is to give it a good base coat. I sprayed all the PVA glue areas with a white base coat first to seal the glue and make it easier to paint.

I also added some coarse gravel around the base of the rocks.

Then I gave it a good coat of black, blue and brown slowly building up the colours.

Blue is much easier to paint on a white background than black.

Further updates on the board

Step 3: Sand the board. I do this first by laying down a coat of PVA glue then sprinkling sand over the top and finally covering it again in a 50/50 PVA water mix to make sure the sand does not come off when I dry brush it.

Here is a close up of the water, again this is just PVA glue painted on with a brush to give the board some depth.

Here is what the road looks like from my PVA silicon mould.

Work in Progress Armies on Parade 2016

Well another year is here and I have two weeks to get a board together - crept up on me this year. I have the army ready to go but need to get a board done for it so here it goes!

Step 1: Start with 1mm thick MDF board cut to 600x600mm. Paint the underside Black and seal with varnish. Top side using Polystyrene sheet cut hill sections. From a mould I had kicking about I made some paving for a brick road out of PVA glue.

Step 2: Lots of PVA glue.... and more.  Glued the rock sections down and made the glue for the water section.
