After a slight delay (of several months) it's time to start blogging about AGOM again!
Today we look at the progress of the raffle army for AGOMXVIII. Or rather, today I get the models out of a carry case and think about doing more on them...
There's still quite a bit to do on this lot, and since we have another event running at AGOMXVIII I have other stuff to paint as well (though less models) - more on that another time. I'll post updates as each unit is finished off.

Drakesworn Templar 2, with annoying brown smear on his armour (sigh...)
Now that the AGOMXVII raffle army is finished, I thought it might be best to add a few painting notes, in case the winner, or anyone else for that matter, wants to paint something in a similar style.
As can be seen (hopefully), the majority of the painting follows the Warhammer TV Beastclaw Raiders video, which can be found here. There were a few changes however, so I've listed the paints used below by "area" (so fur, skin etc.).
Undercoat: Halfords Grey Primer - you should be able to get an equivalent in countries that don't have Halfords (which specialises in car and bicycle products). In general, it's a mid grey tone, a bit darker than administratum grey
Stonehorn fur: Administratum Grey - wash select areas with thinned Thunderhawk Blue - drybrush Wrack White - re-wash select areas with thinned Thunderhawk Blue - drybrush Wrack White
Stonehorn Skin - The Fang - Nuln Oil Wash in recesses - highlight Russ Grey - Highlight Fenrisian Grey
Tomorrow (August 14th) is the The Crucible I, at The Den in Windermere. Details can of course be found on our website. We hope you all have a great time, and remember to bring your models, army list, dice, tape measures, warscrolls etc!
Remember that you don't have to have your models painted for this event - its not long since the general's handbook was released, and we know that this has meant that many players have had to introduce new units into their armies. We felt that it was unfair to penalise those with smaller collections - but be warned that everything will have to be painted for AGOM XVII in October.
Speaking of which, in case you hadn't guessed from the name, Lord Rafl's Raiders will be the Raffle Army at AGOM XVII. I've included a WIP of Lord Rafl himself - more updates on this as we get closer to AGOM XVII!
