Painting guide

Raise the dead by putting a brush to Nagash’s spooky faction of ghosts and ghouls – and learn how to make the macabre models your own



Following on from last month’s Stormcast Eternals guide, we take a look at their opposite number from the Warhammer: Age of Sigmar – Soul wars starter box, the ethereal Nighthaunt. A collection of macabre, haunting spirits, the Nighthaunt are a brand new faction of undead – and these miniatures do not disappoint.The ingenuity of these sculpts is really quite breathtaking, with the use of negative space maximised to really enforce their ghostly properties; you will only see cloaks and ethereal vapours ‘draped’ around the invisible body. It can be disconcerting at times to be painting a hollow figure, or the relief of a ghastly face in the folds of the cloak. Just like with the Stormcast, each figure feels like it has its own story, a history behind its look. This really brings the figures to life in a satisfying way.

This month we’ll be taking a look at painting the models in the ‘standard’ colour scheme, but also a few alternatives. After all, the Nighthaunt could have any look you wish – and that opportunity for personalisation is one of my favourite aspects of the hobby.
