More work on the Cabal
I had some more time to work on my warband. This time I painted up two Cabalist and the second Spire Stalker. I am now two thirds of the way done with my warband.
The first Cabalist has the familiar. This gives the model a extra ability to send out the bird to harass an enemy fighter. This keeps the fighter from disengaging. It is a handy ability if you want to keep a dangerous foe away from a key fighter.
The second Cabalist was the second spear wielding one. The extra inch of range the spear gives came in handy this weekend. The Cabal doesn't have a lot of range so having a 2" reach on these guys helps to relieve that a bit.
While painting him, I had some trouble painting his chest. It didn't turn out well the first time so I decided to repaint it. as with all contrast paints, I had to lay down a base before painting the contrast layer. The fisrt layer didn't cover the base completely so had to use a second layer to get it to look correctly. Unfortunately, This gave it a bit of a darker look. Over all I think it looks good but I do want to get a better base than Seer Grey. It is to dark and doesn't match my primer well. something to think about.
I did get in my first game with the Cabal. The game was fun and quick. I can see getting in a few games in a night instead of one 40k or AoS game. While that is cool, it will not hold my attention like 40k does.
Let me know if you have any questions ? Have you tried to play Warcry yet? Will the sisters come out before Shorehammer? What do Squigs taste like? I look forward to your answers.
