Age of Sigmar: Gloomspite Gitz - Endless Spells: Scuttletide

Another of the Endless Spells that has been sitting, half-done with some paint on it for an Endless amount of time today – the “Scuttletide” from the Gloomspite Gitz (or Night Goblins to you and me). As with the other endless spells I’ve finished recently, this one was started some significant amount of time ago, got delayed for whatever reason (most likely I got distracted and enthusiastic about some other thing – then shoved out of the way, put into a tub and then forgotten for several years

I went with a fairly bright scheme for the spiders here because I live with an arachaphobe, so they need to be unrealistic enough so that they can be on the table with Marouda playing a game. I mean, I’m not especially fond of the creepy little bastards myself, so this works as a game piece. I also dulled down the smaller ones with a few extra layers of wash because the whole piece was just a mess of visual noise, and now the larger ones do at least stand out a little. I also painted fake shadows on the undersides of their legs so that they look a litle more like legs as opposed to walls of plastic.

I didn’t have any painted goblin shamans handy for the size comparison pic (they’re all put away in a case somewhere), so you get a Savage Boyz Shaman instead!

  1. Fantastic work mate, and the added shadow works wonders at covering the excess plastic. as for the colour choices they look very much like the ones I used on my alien spiders ( Don’t tell Marouda, I based mine of a real spider ! LOL)

  2. GW did a great job sculpting these as it really does look like a swarm of spiders heading towards you! I would imagine it wasn’t the most exciting thing to paint but it certainly came out nicely. I think the color scheme fits the faction really well too.

  3. I don’t envy you having to paint those! I’ve got a smaller Reaper Rat Swarm that keeps getting a pass over and over. The mini looks good though and your little touches help sell it. The last pic with the Shaman is definitely the icing on the cake! 😀
