Rebased - Nightstalker update - Hunting evil Northern Alliance 🐉

Last weekend I broke out the hobby factory and punched out my updated “new” Nightstalker army. Well, it was a refit of one I had back in Jan prior to Masters. I created this because I loved the Green necro-ghost look. I didnt get the results I really wanted, so I decided to take EoD to Masters instead, but that was a different project.

Here was a pre-Masters test game I did - I was a bit short on time to get the army built and do testing, So I went back to my EoD Army since I knew how to play that and tried to keep the a similar theme.

JAN 2019

This was the start, but I can do beter than this…

Here is what I turned up with at Masters.

I got lots of questions about it and since Ive sen a number of ghost armies. Thats cool!
But I only pulled the Night stalkers out a few times since, I do have a number of projects I started Since Masters. Big events are very inspiring.

Cyrstal Song Forest: Crystalsong forest - Nature project - Mike Grant
Frostmoon Goblins : Frozen tundra with big blue bully project
Demigod Ogres: Mythical Demigod - Ogre army project
And about 5 others…

So its about time to pull that original Nightstalker project back out. Lets start with the idea! Saw this at a local game store - I was like… thats cool. Look at the clocklike runes and the ghost are defending it. Then I saw David Griffin’s Undead, I was like ! I can do that!

So I picked up a greenstuff world texture roller and started knocking it out this saturday and got almost done by sunday night. I have a factory mindset of doing it all at one time.

I’ll let some pictures do the talking.

In the afternoon on Sunday I started adding the models and working on the green mist at the models feet. That is taking some time, so I couldnt finish that,

…but I did also make time to start this guy - still need more time for the paint, he is my Terror.

Another great army project, and a salvage job at that, my favorite :wink: I also love that acrylic bases are becoming a thing, bless you and that one dude who posted the abyssals or whatever on orange acrylic for helping legitimize acrylic for KOW. I also really appreciate that this army isn’t entirely glowy green, IMO that look tends to fall a bit flat, prefer having some more substantial colors for the green to contrast against, like your cloaked phantoms (?) and boney armored terror.

absolutely! Thanks for the nice comments! much appreicated.

Testors makes a flurescent green color for airbrush paint.

I did something different here, the Phantoms are at the top Left in Horde formation. I did Butchers using the Grimghast Reapers for example. Different take. I hope it looks intuitive on the field. The size felt right and the big weapons seemed to fit. I might replace all the swords with Scythes … like grim reapers.

Anthony Leslie… His stuff is amazing. Can’t give him enough props.
He does commision work too. But we spoke about a few projects and obviously his stuff looks great in pictures, in displays, and in person. Got a chance to play against one of his armies recently too. Tip top. And a great sportsman and player!

Here is some of his stuff.

The Bone creature is a combination of a number models.

Pricy kit bash, but interesting.




I hadn’t seen the Stormies before, another great basing example. Y’all have me wondering at what point I give the same a shot, but I don’t know if it’s in the cards for me, with such an extreme backlog of MDF trays already :confused:

Impressive collection of kits in that terror :cold_sweat:

Nice army! I really like your projects, so full of character, sometimes quite unconventional. I also like the acrylic bases of the Abyssals by Anthony Leslie. So keep your models coming, very inspiring.

I got to say though, this is no political forum. It is an international forum about KoW and other miniature games by and for a great community. I don´t think it´s the right place to celebrate an american, or any other, veterans day. That said, I am by no means a moderator or otherwise in charge here, not even a bit.

Dass Sie Deutscher bist, kann ich verstehn. Vek gemacht.

I changed that. It sounded a bit anti-american before, which wasn´t my intention .

@MikeGrant Thanks. I didn’t want to offend in any way. But I don’t think I have to explain, your comment pretty much nailed it :wink:

I just noticed the acrylic bases you used! A really nice touch!
