AGOM XVIII raffle army progress

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.

Painting Lord Rafl's Raiders

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
  • Mournfang skin - Russ Grey - wash Nuln Oil - Russ Grey - Highlight Fenrisian Grey
  • Ice - White Scar (a few coats to make it smooth) - wash with thinned Calth Blue (Forge World airbrush paint) - drybrush Praxeti White - 'Ardcoat
  • Dark Horn, Hooves etc - Rhinox hide - wask Druchii Purple - drybrush Sylvaneth Bark - highlight Karak Stone
  • Wood - Dryad Bark - wash Agrax Earthshade - drybrush Sylvaneth Bark - highlight Baneblade Brown
  • Leather - Mournfang Brown - wash Nuln Oil - Highlight Skrag Brown
  • Red Cloth - Khorne Red - wash Nuln Oil - highlight Wazdakka red
  • Straps, ropes etc - Zandri dust - wash Agrax Earthshade - highlight Ushabti Bone
  • Ogre Flesh - Kislev Flesh (a few coats until smooth) - wash with thinned Bugman's Glow - Kislev Flesh - highlight Flayed One Flesh
  • Metal - Leadbelcher - wash Nuln Oil - highlight Stornhost Silver
  • Bone - Zamesi Desert - wash Reikland Fleshshade - Ushabti Bone - highlight 50:50 Screaming Skull:White Scar

The Crucible I

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!
