Hello everyone, this post will be different from my previous Nighthaunt posts with a little something to cut through the spookiness. With that I present to you Sevrin Steelheart from the Shadespire game. Like so many other painters here on TOP I really welcomed Shadespire with open arms, more if I had more arms. After seeing Lecoqadoodledo’s Shadespire Stormcast, I was determined to start painting mine but didn’t’ get far as I only painted one.
I decided to follow the box art as best as I could with the exception of the sword. i wanted to do a NMM crystal blade as I love painting those blades.I really love this model but I think Lecoqadoodledo would agree with me that this is one of the most frustrating miniatures we’ve ever painted. As I couldn’t do much in terms of sub assemblies I painted the mini as a whole. There were a lot of hard to reach places and painted the face took me quite a long time. I re painted the eyes over and over again and at the end am still not really satisfied with the outcome. In the end once the eyes got close to what i wanted I left it there.
I hope you like this version of the box art. If you have any questions of comments please leave them bellow. Take care everyone and happy painting!
I totally agree with you there Richard! It actually took me 1 hour to paint the eyes just doing it over and over and over again….. I don't think I've ever been so frustrated painting a model before. It's a same since it looks so good haha.
Beautiful Job my friend ??♂️????????????
Thanks very much mate. Waiting for some more versions to pop up on TOP haha.
This is inspiring me to finish mine. Great work.

Of the three stormcast, Severin is imo the toughest to paint, especially his face and eyes. I'm painting the face for the third time now, I might do the eyes first this time…
I've done the other two stormcast, which I'm happy with, but I am painting Severin in sub-assemblies.
