AoS Shorts: Your Essential Guide to Age of Sigmar

How I Paint Things – Speed Painting Nighthaunt

Today is a new video from Troy at Sonic Sledgehammer Studio about how he speed-paints Nighthaunt. How to get that army on to the tabletop super-quick and looking good. 

As I announced previously, I’ve partnered with Troy to add a range of Age of Sigmar painting tutorials to the site.   All part of the plan to be an invaluable resource for all aspects of the hobby.

Speed Painting Nighthaunt

When there’s something strange in your neighborhood, it’s probably got Nihilakh Oxide and Nighthaunt Gloom on it…

Chainrasps form the core of the Nighthaunt army, and these techniques will work perfectly well on other units of the same spectral make-up – add a little more to the capes to paint your Bladegheist Revenants, or less of it to paint up some Harridans. As a method of churning out large numbers of infantry very, very quickly, I don’t think you can beat this, with the added bonus that it’s a remarkably small number of paints and incredibly easy as well!

How I Paint Things Video Tutorials

How I Paint Things is a series of simple instructional videos designed to help the newcomer through some of the basics and demonstrate how the very simplest techniques can still give you some great results that’re easily replicated. Aimed at the beginner to painting miniatures, there might be one or two tips or tricks that help even you old hands!
