"Shadespire is a great game. It's also really easy to paint up a warband for it since some of them are only 3 models, like these Stormcast Eternals Steelheart's Champions. The fun part with that is it's a great time to experiment with painting techniques, to try something different, like this rust effect technique I decided to use on the miniatures.

I'm not a bit fan of the good guys in games. I prefer those who walk a grey to black line, not a white one, so when it came time to paint Steelheart's Champions, I decided I wanted to change it up. Instead of the typical gold armor with Stormcasts, I opted for something gritty, something that didn't scream we are humankind's saviors…."
