Highborn Painting Update

So I've been working on trying to get my Highborn list fully painted before KingdomCon in April. Progress has been slower than I would have liked, but progress is progress, right? Anyways, at this point, I'm down to just a few things left.
1) Amethyst Rose Gun Mages
2) Anastasia di'Bray
3) whatever jack I find to fill in the rest of these points.

The list so far is this: (un/partially painted)
Points: 44
Ashlynn d'Elyse -6
Vanguard +5
Arcane Tempest Gun Mages (6) +6
Arcane Tempest Gun Mage Officer +2
Mule +8
Cylena Raefyll & Nyss Hunters (10) +10
Horgenhold Forge Guard (10) +8
Lady Aiyana & Master Holt +4
Anastasia di Bray +2
Master Gunner Dougal MacNaile +2
Rhupert Carvolo, Piper of Ord +2

So I'm fairly close to fully painted for this list. Almost all my solos are done (excluding Anastasia), my jacks that are for sure in the list so far are done, and I have a unit (Gun Mages) and a half (4 Nyss) left to paint. I'm trying to decide betweeen running a Buccaneer or 2nd Vanguard along with some other power solos like Eiryss. The alternative is to run a Nomad instead. Anyways, I'll worry about that later. Once I get the Gun Mages + Anastasia painted, I'll probably take the list for a test drive. So on to the interesting part, the painting update.

Holt's finally finished.

Highborn Solos so far

So I really like how the army is looking so far. Hopefully soon I can get a fully painted army shot.

After I finish painting up these Mercs, I'll turn my eye back to Cryx, probably starting with painting up Satyxis Bloodwitches + UA, then converting and painting up my Black Ogrun.


  1. Nice use of colors. I really like them.

  2. Thanks. It makes for a nice break from painting all the undead Cryxian goodies :p
