Lord Baltazar Khepri, Master of the Order of the Coptic Stag

As promised I present my first new AoS post.
Lord Baltazar Khepri, Master of the Order of the Coptic Stag. Once the leader of an order of knights dedicated to seeking out and ridding the world of ancient necromantic lore Baltazar delved deep into the mysteries of ancient Khemri and unlocked secrets not known since the time of the Black Pyramid. Baltazar eventually corrupted the rest of the order and one by one the knights were turned to a new purpose and became lifeless corpses serving Baltazar Khepri in gathering lost necromantic texts for safe keeping. Once the Order was wholly converted Khepri presented them in their entirety to Arkhan the Black to serve as his personal guards. He has remained Arkhan's loyal servant ever since.

  4. I think I might have to do a tutorial on how to do paint like the shield. But for now I will say that I stared by painting parts of it with Agrellan Earth technical paint and then painted some of the flat parts with bronze and the rest white. I then painted the stag beetle on it followed by a wash and then used dried pigment on top of it all. The bronze was gone over with wet pigment. The next time I do a shield like this I will take pictures and make a tutorial. Thank you guy.
