Sylvaneth- Kurnoth Hunters with Great Bows

I present to you my second installment for #Squaduary– Kurnoth Hunters with Great Bows.  I’m a fan of these models.  Now the bows haven’t done much for me in-game but they still look good on the table top.  They look great and have been a treat to paint.  For my first #Squaduary installment check out my Sylvaneth- Tree Revenant post.


I was having issues with the bows.  Initially I painted the bows brown and gold.  I highlighted the brown with different shades from the bark but the bows didn’t stand out from the model.  The I tried black with grey highlights but again I wasn’t satisfied.  I figured I would try the blue “spirit” look and out of the three attempts I was most satisfied with that rendition.  I can almost imagine the bows being activated like lightsabres; click a button and the weapon extends into a bow.






Here are some solo shots.  I’ll start with the Huntmaster.  This is my favourite pose out of the three.


For the arrow I followed the same process as the bows.  The brown and black shafts were not doing it for me so I also switched for a gold shaft.  It will be heresy if Sylvaneth use wood for bows and arrows.  Now gold on the other hand does constitute any moral dilemma.



A close up of the fungus and chest cavity of the Huntmaster.  It’s a pity there wasn’t more fungus sculpted onto the models.  It’s some nice detail added to the model.  If you are interested in how I painted the fungus I started with Scab Red with a highlight of Squig Orange.  I applied Agrax Earthshade with a final highlight of Elf Flesh.


And for the finale I present the Quiverlings.  I chose to go with the spirit them for these little fellas.  I think it ties into the army a lot better.  It’s a nice little addition to the base and adds some more flavour.  I painted the stumps grey to break up the brown.




So this concludes #Squaduary.  Thank you Rory at Stepping Between Games for sending the invite out on the interwebs and for compiling all the participants.  If you haven’t already done so go wander over to his site.  He has plenty of articles to keep you busy for a while.

This now takes us into #MonsterMarch.  Swordmaster at Path of an Outcast is encouraging painters to pick up their brushes and complete a monster during the month of March.  I have pledged Drycha for this event.  If you want to participate leave a comment on the article or send a tweet on Twitter.

If you collect Age of Sigmar and want to showcase your models please drop me an e-mail.  my contact info is on the sidebar.  Thanks for reading and thanks to all the #Squaduary participants.


  1. Lovely work as always. I really like the pink on the flowers and bases. You would think it would look silly, but it works really well.

  2. The ‘spirit saber/sabre’ bow would explain the lack of a bow string too, so its a win win. These look great, really dig how this army looks, nothing like the grimdark Carcharadons, well done mate.

    • I’m looking for excuses to make lightsabre sounds when I play games. On the subject of grey my Spite Revenants will be a grey bark. They’re next. Carcharodons, sadly, are pushed behind a few months.


  3. Truly beautiful man. Everything from the pink, blue and gold on the bows, to the basing just works so well, and the end result is just a beautiful set of minis

    • Thanks. I’m looking forward to what you have in store with your Sylvaneth.


  4. They look awesome Alex, I like the blue for the bows, and agree the gold arrows work really well to contrast with the dark wood.

    • Thanks. Yeah, it was trial and error but eventually found out a winning combination.
