The gloomy crypt of Noctis in Shyish is the setting for Warcry: Crypt of Blood. The box contains six new terrain pieces, and I didn’t miss the chance to paint them for my terrain collection. Find out how in this showcase post.

In my review of Warcry: Crypt of Blood, I criticised that the box was a bit light on contents. Nevertheless, the Soulblight Gravelords themed graveyard terrain was a perfect fit for my Shyish-themed Age of Sigmar terrain collection.

The walls, fences, and statue of Neferata complement my Legion of Blood Skeleton Warriors well, and also look great as a backdrop for my Nighthaunt. I hope we see a separate release and/or an expansion of this terrain theme at some point.

I chose a jade green paint scheme, with grey rubble for the bases, to match the cardboard gaming board from the original Warcry starter box. For the sarcophagus, I created a subtle marble effect with my airbrush, using the wet-wipe method.

I explain how I did the marble and painted the walls and fences in detail in my masterclass tutorial of the Crypt of Blood terrain. You can find the PDF in my Patreon shop, or you can access the tutorial along my other resources, such as my paint charts or the masterclass tutorial for my Skeleton Warriors, by joining my Patreon as an Aspect Warrior tier member.

Hope you enjoyed my take on the Crypt of Blood terrain, and maybe this post inspired you to spend some time on your own terrain collection. Make sure to check out Garfy’s Crypt of Blood post here, who also painted all of the warbands from the set.
