so I've had a fairly productive hobby weekend. I built the Vampire Count Coven Throne and am now worried whether I should have painted it on the spruce rather that after the building. I have kept the 3 Vampire's off of the mini for painting though. I also converted the 3 banshee's in that kit for the Mortis Engine into normal banshee's which I hope to use place in units in the future.
My main work though was the cleaning up and undercoating of two of my Vampire models. The first of these was the female vampire from Avatars of War. A model that I really love.

The second vampire I was working on during the weekend is mounted and comes from the great German Gamezone Range.
|Gamezone Mournful Knight 1|
The base does not come with the mini, but I have taken it from the Harry the Hammer limited edition release GW produced a couple of years ago.
|Base without the Knight|
I'm delighted with this little bit of a conversion. (Does a base swap count as a conversion) because I really think it adds a sense of dynamic movement to the model. Like the Vampire is charging over the useless ranks of skeleton's to get at the enemy more quickly.
Coming in the next post: Basecoats of the the vampire miniatures.
