This sight pleases my eyes. And I love that WP sticking out of the turret. Such a cool, little addition to the model. :biggriin:

I did, but only for grey areas during the base coat.

Those griffons are really nice looking. I like the riders as well. I see one from Ostermark. Where are the other two from?

They are generic, for the moment. Maybe in a future, I will add a shield to them, with specific heraldic colours

I got one of those models, and at some point would like to get it painted.

The colors on your griffons look good and well blended!

Wondering how from back of the head forward to the beak that the brown to tan to yellow achieved.

Airbrush effect. Yellow is Balor Brown and brown is Rhinox Hide. You can achieve similar effect with a brush, but you'll have to invest more time; but if you have to paint only one model, that will be no problem! Go for it!

Your Job is amazing sir!
I only have one question regarding the griffon Riders... At what point of the leg exactly did you cut the original elf model to achive the conversion?

Thanks Green Knight.
Here the bits of the Island of Blood griffon:



So, I cut the elf rider on his knees up. Then I take a regular empire knight and cut off his entire legs. Finally, green stuff to homogenize the model.

Love the satin effect on the robes.
The legs for the amber wizard are clever.

However the blue wizard arms and head look a bit awkward?

I'm liking the creativity of the conversions here!

Does the yellow wizard not have an arm or is that just how the photo came out?
