Indeed, he's a cracker!

One thing I'm missing on his special rules though; why is he A 4(7)? Where does the 7 come from?

Otherwise I think eternal hatred and killing blow might be a bit too much, I can see opponents not being so keen on that. And Valek's rune does absolutely nothing for your king. If the deamon has a toughness of 5 or less, his strength is already 5 so the rune does nothing, if 6 or more then the rune of might renders it obsolete by making him S10!

I like the rune upgrades for champs, that's a nice touch. May be worth specifying that it doesn't replace their wepon's normal properties though (so a champ in a unit with GWs still has the GW rules).

@Thane Morgan: Honestly I copied that stat sheet from another Lord description so I don't quite know either. As for the other points you made, I do agree and will think about some changes.

Wonderful stuff, the prince is really impressive. For some reason I also had missed your prior update. It's some mind boggingly amazing painting! Very nice work and really lovely warm colours! :clapping:

Great army! I like your idea with using empire bits- they look fantastic, and painting is also very good :clapping:

Go right ahead. What crests in particular you thinking about? I use both Empire and Bret. I'm excited about using the new Demigyphs rider crests though.

These look awesome and the depth of the color and NMM is great. my only nitpick though is that the gold NMM can't be fully appreciated on the dwarf with the blonde beard. The yellows seem to blend together.

I'm going to attempt to copy your wood and leather work. I've only seen a handful of people go all out in texturing poles like that. :yes: Amazing!

My NMM Gold (copied from Scibor):

1. Base coat in Vermin Brown.
2. Take it to it's darkest shade with watered down layers of black or brown.
3. The hardest part is deciding which direction to fade from shadow to highlight. On big flat surfaces I do opposite of what you would think and keep the shadow on the top part and fade to the highlight on the bottom part (i.e. the Hammer). On smaller surfaces I do it normally, highlight towards the top and shadow at the bottom (i.e. Pig Helmet).
3. From Vermin Brown I blend to Blazing Orange and use two coats off increasing Blazing Orange in the Vermin Brown to do this. A do a final coat of pure Blazing Orange that should leave around 2/3 of the surface fading to that pure Blazing Orange (the first 1/3 of the surface is dark brown beginning to fade to Orange, the second 1/3 of the surface is continuing to fade from brown to a pure orange at the division between the second 1/3 and the final 1/3). On the final 1/3 of the surface I blend quickly between Blazing Orange and Sunburst Yellow. It is important to keep the proportion right here, you want a little less than 2/3 of the surface to be brown with only around the last 1/3 of the surface being pure orange and yellow.
4. Finally I highlight all the edges in Sunburst Yellow. This is why you paint the large surfaces blending from shadow to highlight opposite (shadow where you usually paint the highlight) because metal has weird quality of going from highlight to it's deepest shadow. So by following the opposite fading policy, when yo put this final highlight on you have it sitting right next to your darkest shadow area.

Let me know if that helps or is just confusing.

Right now I'm painting a skaven invader and using the same method on his weapons but instead of orange I am using green to give the weapon a wyrdstone feeling. I'm pretty sure you can use this method with any three colors as long as the three colors fill the shadow, medium and highlight color ranges.

agreed golds are excellent, are you doing the chainmail in NMM too? Wood grain is the bane of my painting (amongst many other things), yours is great!

The chainmail is not NMM. I start with a base of a dark royal blue, then I dry-brush on chainmail silver paint and finally a highlight of mythril silver paint.

I am thinking of doing my silver in NMM soon though.
