Inspired Soul Wars Collection: Prosecutors of the Gravewalkers Chamber

After finishing off my last unit of Sequitors for my Sacrosanct Chamber, I went straight onto painting my Warrior Chamber of the Gravewalkers, the Anvils of Heldenhammer who guard Glymmsforge. I thought it would be fitting to paint my Prosecutors based on the legendary unit led by Prosecutor-Prime Galen Sleekwing, who helped Glymm (now known as Knossos Heavensen) defeat Vaslbad the Unrelenting during the first war for Glymmsforge.

During the battle, both human and Stormcast worked together to face against Vaslbad the Unrelenting, who wanted to seize the Free-City of Glymmsforge’s realmgate so that Nagash can summon his undead legions into the realm of Azyr.

Galen Sleekwing swooped into battle and took away Vaslbads only defence from his immortal life, his protective banner he took on his skeletal mount. When he lost his banner, he was vulnerable against any blessed weapons that would kill any foolish Soulblight vampire.

Glymm rode to war with his blessed lance and impaled the cursed Soulblight vampire through the heart. A major victory for the defenders of Glymmsforge and it’s safe keeping of its realmgate, the Shimmergate. However, this would come at a price as Glymm himself was fatally sliced in half by Vaslbad, his valiant heroism and victory was cut short.

But Sigmar had seen Glymm’s heroic deed and reforged him as Knossos Heavensen, Lord Arcanum of the Hammers of Sigmar Sacrosanct Chamber.

Galen Sleekwing would later return to defend Glymmsforge when the Knight of Shrouds, Malendrek, led his Nighthaunt host into a seige warfare to take the Free-City.

Whilst it took me only two days after painting my Sequitor cohort, it wasn’t plain sailing when painting this unit. Originally they were going to be part of my Knights of Excelsior warband in games of Skirmish. However, after reading Soul Wars novel, I wanted the unit to be in this collection instead.

Since they already had a white undercoat, it was difficult for me to Prime it in black as 1) I needed several coats of paint and 2) I didn’t have much paint in the spray can at the time. So, I had to paint areas that didn’t get the Black Prime with Abbadon Black, which wasn’t as good as Model colour Matt black in my opinion.

Anyways, it took me some time to get the coating right, but thankfully the unit was finally painted in the end!

Next up, I only have a unit of two Retributors left to paint before I need to get additional models for the collection. It’s been ages since I’ve brought miniatures for the project as I’ve been saving up for Orktober (and golfing equipment, but that’s a story for another day!).

My plan is to get the Knight of Shrouds model and the Shadespire Stormcast set, which will not only add more notable hero’s to my collection, but finish off the series. Well more like a series finale as break, I don’t want to burn out doing this project for too long.

Anyways, I’ll get back to work on my Retributors. Until next time!
