Vampire Counts - Hexwraiths

I've been making some progress on my Vampire Counts. I think I can get them finished, or at least the army build I currently have in mind, by the middle of May. That should give me enough time play the army enough so if I do take it to the Quake City Rumble I won't have a repeat of The Colonial.

I really like this kit. I think they did a good job of giving enough details to both the Hexwraiths and the Black Knights so they look different from one another. This kit, more than most, had a lot of mold lines and cleaning mold lines is probably my least favorite thing to do in this hobby.
I don't know if it's because of Slimer from Ghost Busters, Scooby Doo, or some movie I saw as a kid but whenever I think of ghosts I always think of them being green. All of my ethereal in my Vampire Counts will be green because of that, and I think it looks pretty good.
I really like the idea that they're green ghosts with ghostly blue flames, but that the only thing they carry that is physical is the scythe blade.

I think moving forward I'll be doing another unit of these guys as they're solid in the game and I really like how mine came out.

For the rest of this week, however, I'll be finishing up some odds and ends for my Tomb Kings. I've been using Khalida with them and having a lot of fun with the army, so I'm happy to play them for another month.
