Today I’m showing you an older model of mine that I recently reworked slightly: Garkorr, Bladegheist Revenant, the limited edition Nighthaunt model that was released for the opening of the 500th Warhammer shop.

I use this pretty cool model as a Knight of Shrouds. I originally painted it a year ago, but after tweaking my colour scheme when I painted my Spirit Hosts, I had to rework Garkorr as well. At the time I had the problem of accidentally breaking the chain on the back, and of course, it broke again this time. So I had to re-pin it again and conceal the breakage with Green Stuff. It’s a shame, since it’s also a limited model, but I hope it will finally stay on this time. A problem I often have with Nighthaunt models: something always breaks off. Is it just me? Drop me a comment.

If you would like to know how I painted this model, check out my tutorial for painting my Nighthaunt paint scheme here:

However, as mentioned before, I made a few changes to my paint scheme since I wrote the tutorial. The recipe for the lilac spectral bodies has stayed the same, but the spot colours have been changed. Here are the updated recipes for reference:
