The ghouls are starting with a medium brown basecoat followed by Agrax Earthshade wash, and I'm working on using a fleshtone on the skin right now. Each ghoul's taking a while because I want to make sure I do the least amount of touch up steps as possible.

I should have some pics up this weekend where they'll hopefully be done.

If I'm lucky, they're done today, if not, they should be done within the next couple of days.

Looking good! Are you going to do the bases as well?

Have you tried to add a few brighter, flesh coloured accents to make them look a bit more pale?
I could also imagine a bit of ,,blood for the blood god"-technical looking good on those creepy beasts.

AdMech: 2 Vanguard
Marines: 1 Rhino, 6 Primaris Intercessor, 1 Captain in gravis armour, 1 Scribbus Wretch

I will be doing the bases as well, I just don't have any of my basing material with me.

I'm getting some good progress on my corpse cart done. The frame is completed along with the fire for the Balefire and I'm getting basecoats on all the zombies and corpses on it.

I don't know if I'll be able to finish it before the end of the week when I leave to go to my home for the entire week. However, I should have stuff I can assemble and prime while I'm there.

I have my Terrorgheist and Skaven Warlord ordered now!

They should arrive around Wednesday next week, I'll post some pics of them assembled and possibly primed!

I'll also do what I can to bring the Grave Guard, Plague Monks, Warlord, Ghoul King and Krell to where I'm attending university to work on them.

I want to see my armies with 100% painted in my signature.

Sorry I haven't been posting lately, I've been roughly 500 kilometres from my painting supplies for the week. I have, however been able to get some things done.

1. Assemble Krell, aside from the axe, he's all put together and primed
2. Prime the Grave Guard and Plague Monks. After some issues with a brown spray paint primer I got, everything is primed and ready to paint.
3. Got Konrad von Carstein, he's all assembled and ready to go.

I am picking up the Terrorgheist and Warlord today as I missed the delivery to my house. Here's hoping I get one of the Emperor's Gifts.

Hey everyone, sorry for the late update, it's just that I wanted to post a picture of a completed model, minus the base. None of my basing material is with me right now.

But here he(?) is, Krell, the Lord of Undead.
