I finished up my second Shadespire warband this evening, the Stormcast faction that comes in the core box. Before I started on them, I was a bit lukewarm, and mostly because of that decided to just “stick with what works” and paint them up exactly the same as my Marines. And lo and behold, they turned out OK!
The sloppy names on the base rims are mostly because for the foreseeable future, this warband (along with the Chaos one) is going to be for demoing, and one thing I’ve noticed in games with new players so far is confusion about which model is which. If I can find a finer-tipped white pen I’ll redo them in an instant.
Next up is the Chaos warband, an easy-build Redemptor I picked up for my marines, and a growing backlog of terrain, whee!
