After finishing the Stormcast Eternals from the Storm of Sigmar box I decided to threat myself to something else than just the Khorne Bloodbound from the same box. I stopped by my local GW store and I saw this small terrain piece on the shelf. The Magewrath Throne is, I was told, a sort of release of terrain kit from Fantasy. Like half a kit or something. Oh, well, it doesn’t really matter. The Magewrath Throne is a cheap and pretty cool kit, I’m glad I picked it up. They should release more stuff in this price range really.
Ok, the piece was quite horrible to put together. Loads of flash, the pieces didn’t really fit and all that jazz. The experience of putting this model was rather different from putting the state-of-the-art models Games Workshop normally releases nowadays.
The paint job is simple enough. The watered down red on the gargoyles and the throne helped to age the piece. So did the verdigris. Rather than washing the piece in Agrax Earthshade and worked my way from there I decided to wash the entire thing in Thraka Green (old shade from a pot that never runs out). Green works great with red and gives the bare stone different feel. After drybrushing with Dawnstone and Screaming Skull I glazed the entire piece with Waywatcher to tie it all together.
The bronze is just Retributor Armour, Agrax Earthshade and Nihilahk Oxide. I wanted to keep the winter theme going so I topped it off with a dab of Valhallan Blizzard here and there.
Keep on trucking.
