Sylvaneth- Kurnoth Hunters with Greatswords WIP

Edmonton recently enjoyed some above zero weather so I took full advantage of it and primed some models.  First up on the painting table is Kurnoth Hunters with great swords.  These are fantastic models with lots of detail.  It’s no wonder they made it to front of the line.


I have one problem with these models and it’s the dynamic poses.  Well, I like dynamic poses the problem is how little of the model is actually touching the base.  I’d like a little more stability at a sacrifice to the dynamic.

For the bark I used Scorched Brown and applied a wash of Nuln Oil.  Then bring on the drybrush.  I used Scorched Brown, Dark Flesh, Sylvaneth Bark, Graveyard Earth and conclude with a light dusting of Terminatus Stone.  The inner exposed bark is Rakarth Flesh with a coat of Agrax Earthshade.  The flowers are based with Screamer Pink.





I painted white into the ruins and use Guilliman Blue glaze over the runes, swords and sprites.  I drybrushed white over the swords and sprites.  Retributor Gold and Burnished Gold were used on the hilts.  I will use a 50/50 highlight of Mithril Silver and Burnished Gold to cool the gold down.



Stay tuned.  These models should be finished next week.  Then I’ll paint the Kurnoth Hunters with bows.  Thanks for reading.


  1. I love how the wood effect you do ends up on them. Thise models are without a doubt the best thing to cone out of AoS, just a wonderful range.

    • Thanks. Yeah, it’s a fantastic range to paint and play. Now, cleaning the models of mold lines is a different story. There are a lot of delicate parts. I’ve lost of few branches.


  2. Looking good. I agree with Rory, the bark just looks awesome.

    • Thanks. I have to bring up the brown bark quota. Most of my Sylvaneth are grey bark.

  4. Looking good so far. It’s awesome to see how quickly you can get these to look good with all that texture. The blue really shines as well.

    • The detail on these models are fantastic. Thankfully drybrushing works well with them and highlights the detail.


  5. Amazing as always.
