Now that my swamp base is done I've been working on some shadow hounds to occupy it to define my night stalker army style. I wanted something dark, nightmarish, black and evil but also a little colour. Eyes aren't really enough colour for me, but the Tyranid models that GW use have lots of areas that I can set to glow with the inner purple power of these creatures.
I used loaded brush a lot on these guys to get the blending of light gray to black to give them some depth. The purple is simply white and then layered up to purple and a drybrush OSL. I wanted a good effect without spending a month on each unit and I'm happy with the result.
Next step for me is the second unit of these Shadowhounds. This unit is the lead and the second troop will be behind. The scenic bases will match and join together with magnets when done to make a regiment.
On another note, I've added a subscribe link to my blog in case you're interested in hearing about what I'm working on.
