Hobby Update: Cairn Wraiths

I needed to revamp my Nagash list, I decided to go with 3 Cairn Wraiths to fill out the hero section. I used them list in the last Goldmine tournament, see how I did here: Link

 

These Wraiths were just “converted” Grimghast Reapers. The paint is mostly the same as my regular ghosts, however I put a black cowl on top instead of the dark grey the rest wear.

This was not a new paint it was just a re-base of an old 8th edition Cairn Wraith. That I have had painted for many years.
