I finally picked up my character warbeast, Typhon. Most beasts are non-unique, and you can have as many of them as you want in an army, or you can have a certain number per warlock. Character warbeast are, obviously, characters, therefore you can only have one in any army. Let me divulge a small portion of storyline so that you might better understand my seemingly strange color scheme. In the world of hoardes, dragons have stones called athancs inside of them that contain their life force. The legion of Everblight is lead by a dragon, ironically named Everblight. Everblight was destroyed long ago, but his athanc was found by an ogrun named Thagrosh (whom you might could see in a later post, if I ever get around to painting him). Thagrosh and the rest of my warlocks now each have a shard of Everblights athanc in their hearts. Anyway, later on, the Legion goes and kills itself a dragon. Thaggy yoinks the athanc of this other dragon, named Pyromalfic, and consumes it. Thagrosh later goes through a transformation and becomes a large draconic monster, during which all of his flesh peels off and he rips the athanc out of his chest and cuts a tiny portion off, which falls into the big pool of blood and skin at his feet. Part of this mass of flesh rejoins Thagrosh's body, but the rest becomes Typhon. So, Typhon not only has a piece of Everblight's athanc, but also Pyromalfic's. Thus, he still retains much of the Everblight blue theme that I have with the rest of my beasts, but also has a Pyromalficish element introduced.
Typhon was a beast (no pun intended) to assemble and paint, what with all of his long necks and two-piece heads, and all of his limbs all convoluted in by his underside, but, after many days of painting into the wee hours of the morning, I finally finished him.He is an awesome-sauce model. I haven't played with him yet, nor have I played with Epic Lylyth, but I really want to. The only disappointment I have with Typhon is his 4 Fury. Everblight has yet to get a 5-Fury model, but that's okay, and I really shouldn't be complaining after all of the other awesome-sauce stuff we've gotten.

Lylyth, Shadow of Everblight

Lylyth, Shadow of Awesome Sauce

I just bought this model yesterday and went on a painting rampage into the wee hours of the morning. It was pretty fun. I stayed up until about 2:30. This is definitely the fastest paint job I have ever done, completed in under nine hours from the time that I bought it. It is also one of my best paint jobs. I'm not sure if it's quite as good as Vayl, but I'm still immensely satisfied. Anyway, this is my first epic warlock. You may recall an earlier post about Lylyth, Herald of Everblight. This new model is the same person, but withmore experience and better weapons and spells. Epic Lylyth is definitely better painted. As to which model I like better, I am more obsessed with epic Lylyth right now, but that's mainly just because I just bought her. They both have their own Awesomesauceness, but I think I like the epic version better, although it's really hard to decide.

Vayl, Disciple of Everblight

This is one of my warlocks. She's pretty awesome sauce. She dies to a stiff breeze, but she has awesome sauce spells and a crazy-high fury, which equals a crazy-high control range. Anyway, this is by far my best painting job so far. She is amazing (as far as my work goes, anyway) and I am extremely satisfied.

This is my heavy warbeast. I actually finished painting him several months ago, but haven't posted it until now. He is very large and meaty and can take several hits. I include him in pretty much every army I play, and I am satisfied with my paint job. Here is a picture of him next to one of my roughly human-sized warlocks so you can get a scope of his fattyness.
