To celebrate the new Nighthaunt vs Daughter of Khaine battlebox, I decided to update the paint job of my Warhammer Underworlds warband Lady Harrow’s Sorrowflight, as Arena of Shades happens to contain a unit of Myrmourn Banshees. Find out more in this post.

I painted these Myrmourn Banshees a couple of years ago for Warhammer Underworlds, but since then I changed the way I paint a few details. You can find a tutorial for the original paint scheme here:

As you can see, I used self-printed transfers for the bases because I always had a hard time telling the models apart in Warhammer Underworlds games. The updated jade green rubble matches my Dominion of Sigmar terrain collection, for which you can find a tutorial here.

Updating these models was a nice little palette cleanser and it made me like the models even more, I feel that especially the reddish-brown vines and jade ruins make the bases pop even more. The original paint job can be found here.

I have a couple more Nighthaunt models I have to update, but it’s always hard to find time for it when new cool models come out all the time. Games Workshop was kind enough to send me the Arena of Shades box, and besides the new Nighthaunt character model, I especially like the Craventhrone Guard, as they are the first missile troops for the Nighthaunt. Also, crossbows are just cool. These will definitely end up on my to-do list.

Arena of Shades is available to (pre-)order at a discount from our partners Wayland Games, Element Games and Taschengelddieb starting today, and if you use our links, you’ll be supporting us and the free content on Tale of Painters at no extra cost to you. Thank you!

Hope you liked this updated paint job of my Myrmourn Banshees, and drop me a comment below if you would like to see more Nighthaunt from me.
