    She’s a good looking cow!!!

    I would probably carryovers the yellow for the tip (it looks like there part of the same piece)

    And as for the gems I think I would stay away from the red.... been the volcano guys colour and perhaps go with a purple, it works great with both greens and yellows and make her look more like a her instead of a him...

    Keep up the good work!!

    I like the purple idea! I bought the green waystone technical paint, I'm wondering how that will look over purple? Guess we will find out ;) I also bought the blue gemstone technical paint, blue ajd purple would also go really well I think? Definitely gonna use purple in some fashion I think though!

    As for the yellow, yeah, agreed, all over will be best I think after looking at it again this morning.

    Thank you! Im beginning to like her more than my Avalenor lol

    As I wait for paints to arrive to do other parts of my Spirit of the Mountain, I have begun working on my Rebirth themed Truestone Seneschal:
    20201009_215313.jpg IMG_20201010_001003_038.jpg
    Still a lot of work to be done on her, but definitely coming a long. My Alarith units will be in these two Rebirth & Destruction themes, while my Vanri units in a different but similar scheme as the Destruction theme.

    Im having a hard time going from Seraphon where you can do almost any scheme... to Lumineth where everyone typically does 1 scheme all the way through... mine oer usual will be different lol but similar enough overall that ita not Crazy

    Let me know what you think!

    Last night I started my Scinari Cathallar with one goal: Only Dry Brush & Shade work. This is thus far the progress, pretty pleased!

    So, some happy news!

    Both Slann's and Stegadons are back in stock on my region, so I snagged 1 of each! The Slann is exactly for that, a Slann. However, the Stegadon I am planning to use for bits primarily for some future projects :) plus this way I can have a Stegadon with a Skystreak bow now ;)

    The other, more immediate, good news is that the paints ive been waiting on have finally arrived! I am now able to continue my Spirit of the Mountains :D

    Using Teseract Glow & Warp Lightning (with other colors) am able to finally start the middle glow I've wanted! I have also begun early progress of her weapon

    Great work!
    I still kinda dislike the infantry helmets. I wish the bull head thingies were either on the back of the model or not there at all.
    But you did a good job on them!

    Thank you!

    I personally like the helms, however, I could also have been very happy with a Bull Icon instead like you said. The Bull Icons on the banners are pretty cool, as example.

    From a Narrative army building stand point I like the helms, it has allowed me to match my Stoneguard and will allow me to match my Stonemage to the Mountain spirit they follow. So that's pretty cool as someone who likes to write stories and backstories for their armies. From a practical standpoint? Yeah, they're weird and would totally get caught some some trees lol

    Lovely, the Glowy green ties the Yellow in nicely with the Green.
    I see you are still indecisive on the shoulder tips ;)

    The puprle-ish piece of cloth, to me, represents the waterfalls of the floating island

    Grrr, Imrahil

    Thank you! Im really happy I decided to wait for the paints, they actually came sooner than I expected, they didnt update in the tracker and showed up with another package!

    More like avoiding them haha they're gonna be yellow, but I have a whole lot of yellow to do... so saving it for towards the end:D:p
    It is funny you should say that! That is exactly what her loin cloth, banner and tassels are meant/going to be colored to represent! The cleansing rivers that flow off and through her mountains and onto the lands below! Great minds ;)

    My current WIPs for my Renewal/Rebirth half of my Lumineth's Alarith units. I've been working primarily on the Spirit of the Mountain, I've made good progress on all her central areas and also her weapon, the crown from the Scinari Cathallar is also turning out much better than anticipated! For the loin cloth, banners and tassels I am using them to represent the cleansing rivers flowing off of her mountains to the lands down below. Such a fun project, looking forward to a full army sometime in the coming months!

    So,

    All of you who are familiar with my blog(s) and how I work will know that I do many different projects at a time. A normally have 3 primary projects and then anywhere from 3-7 side projects, so around 10 active projects at a time. I attribute this to ADD and just having a lot of active ideas and wanting to work on all of them, ha! I of course aim to finish all said projects, it could just be months (or longer) til it does get done, so I apologize now for the many unfinished projects you've all have wanted to see done for awhile... they will get done!

    If you have a specific project you want to hear about, let me know!

    So, speaking of side projects and kitbashes! As you all know, I love to kitbash... its my jam! And the Lumineth will be no different than my Seraphon, except for the moment I'm rather limited on bits for LrL kitbashes. However, something I have wanted to do for a long time I am finally able & have started tonight! I'm a long time World of Warcraft player and I love the lore of the Tauren, and given that the Lumineth now have Bull oriented lore... I thought it a perfect time to bring a Shamanistic non-Chaos Minotaur type race to the Mortal Realms.

    This is my very early WIP kitbash making my own Tauren Race for my Lumineth, these will be a Kroxigor equivalent. The Place Holder Unit Name is the Guardians/Preservers of the Mountain, this is meant to be the leader & also a AoA hero. I still have a lot of greenstuff work to do, along with reshaping the shield into a leaf or a bit more Hysh like and possibly adding a banner to his back.

    What are your thoughts?

    Wow dude, this is amazing and so well fits the Lumineth army. I like the shoulder armor made from the shields.:cool:
