The next unit up in the Night Stalker army creation is the Needle Fangs. I had a vision of this swarm as a plague of void creatures skittering through the deeper and denser parts of the swamp taking on the guise of the greatest insect fears, arachnophobia.
The models are Warhammmer Quest spiders. I've had them for 20 years and never have they been close to a paint brush until now. I've followed the same formula as the rest of the army. I decided in the end not to overcrowd the base as I just didn't think it would have the same effect.
The base follows the same scheme as the rest of the army. It's a bit deeper in resin swamp water and has no land to represent difficult terrain. The rocks are real rocks as usual, all painted of course, and the stick is a real stick also sealed and painted. I really like the reeds so I'll be doing more of them in the future but perhaps the base could have used a little more colour.
I now have a regiment, two troops and a monster. All the ingredients of a small army. My next post will have a progress group photo. The next unit I'm working on is the Doppelgangers, and here's a small spoiler you can expect to see the return of some of the Warhammer Quest miniatures. What's more scary than old Warhammer Quest miniatures lurching out of the swamp to come and eat your dreams?
