This is just one main pic of my entire tomb kings stuff ... like said it's a WIP
(sorry guys who were looking forward to some finished pics of my Vamps... I needed money and had to sell em. but i can probably still a pic of the vampire with the bat wing that was actually finished.)
and this is my first time putting together and/or painting anything not on canvas...
and yes those scorpions tails are hand made... somehow my shipment lost them. and i'm impatient.

It looks pretty nice! Good luck.
The Great Plague meets The Devourer of The Galaxy. What does that make us?
someone should warn mild perfectionists to buy the 'How to paint' book for warhammer before they start to do it themself >< lol
Nice, I like seeing whole armies before painting, Did you use beetles for your chariots?
Looking forward to seeing how you go about painting all of this.
yeah i am hoping the scorps pulling the chariots will come out looking allright...
i plan on painting them to look like tyranid bugs, but painting a 'carapace' is something i'm working on, i want a light green 'film' look across thier back like folded scarab wings. any ideas?
i should have a pic uploaded soon of my counts stuff. it ain't much just a vamp lord with a wing, 10 ghouls, and 4 bat swarms. i already converted most of the skeletons to be Tk skelllies .
Edit: all in all thank you for the confidence, it's been slow getting them done but hey as long as they are painted eventually! lol
haha, i often do that aswell, im so into makeing one army that I use resources from others to add to it and when im done I realise that ive got barely anything left.
se you have base coated them all bone/cream how are you planning to make this bone washes? Drybrushing?
I love Tomb King armies and I can't wait to see yours done. Keep up the good work!
i dont think i'm going to actually do much more washing. i did a 1/1 balance of gryphonne sepia and water, and it didn't really show much against the bleached bone prime unless you look at them in your own hands. i think i'll likely do some dark brown or black inking of crevices as i've been shown on a couple other peoples undead models can turn out very nice for filling.
the highlighting is what's gonna throw me a curve. what's best to blend with bone white for highlighting over bleached bone? i was thinking a base looking grey?
as far as the weapons go on the skeleton units as you can see they are a yellow color... when i got the paint, i saw 'golden yellow' i for sure thought it would come out more golden less yellow. lol. so i got some shiny silver im going to drybrush over the yellow on the weapons that i've already done.
ishould have an updated pic of the army next weekend with a little bit more work done on them, mainly a prime coat of likely black on the remaining warriors i had just finished assembling when this pic was taken and some details to the heroes shown in front of the skatapult.

I really quick way of painting tomb kings is to undercoat them skull white paint the gold areas burnished gold, the red mechrite red the the silver chainmail etc. then wash the mini Non-watered down Devlin mud. then drybrush the bone 50/50 skull white-bleached bone and drybrush the gold and silver areas mithril silver.
if you want to have an experiment id try out that method on a single spare model, and remember dont dry the wash with a hair dryer because it will divert the washed normal movements into the recces.
