I wasn't able to do as much as I would've liked to do hobbywise over the break, I just haven't had the time, but that's not to say I've not done anything, I have a few things to show, for starters I finished my Spyder finally!

I've also been looking into starting my Royal Court as well!
|Harbingers of the Storm and Despair, work in progress.|
The second Cryptek, however, is the first model from the "4 Horsemen" project I briefly mentioned in a previous post. The idea is to model all the Crypteks in the Court except for one (i.e. The Harbinger of the Storms) taking inspiration from a different Horseman of the Apocalypse, in this case, Death. The cloak, scythe type staff and the skulls really give the image of Death himself I think, and I think I've represented a Veil of Darkness and Shroud of Despair pretty well on the model too if I do say so myself.
On top of the Horsemen theme, I will also be basing each Cryptek on one of the 5 elemental spheres each, and I will do this through the bases, colouration and, to some extent, the model themselves. The above two will be based on the elements of air and spirit (in that order) - I plan on the left model to have a mini snow drift on the base and the right model will have an Ulthwe Craftworld helmet on the floor (I believe Ulthwe is the Craftworld that use loads of Wraith Guard/Lords - please let me know if I'm wrong!).
Anyways, that's all for now, I will hopefully be picking myself up a Realm of Battle Board this weekend and a Necron Lord I plan to convert into my Harbinger of Destruction...
