Thanks. I like how it came out too. The beards also provide some coloring (they will either be black or red randomly)

I got spoiled with plastic all these years. Super gluing resin models is the suck!

A close up - not my best work by a long stretch, but I had approached these thinking the painting would suck - pleasantly surprised to find it easier than I thought

Some updates for anyone who is blog-averse! Brass Stampede is taking shape and my Khorgoraths are shaping up.



Here is the guy with the normal banner.



So I gave one guy a back banner, instead of having three dudes all carrying the same standard. I have snowflake syndrome and it shows. Each of these is unique to one another.



The heads of the hornblowers are unhelmeted because how else can they blow the horns? Also, I used two of the way cooler Skullreaper heads because... snowflake.



And here is a pic of my two Khorgoraths. The one with just Tamiya putty needs some greenstuff work, but I love the skull heads from the Necrosphinx. The horns give them a more Khorne feel, imo.

Anyhow, thanks for looking. More updates throughout the week, I hope. Take a gander at my blog too, if you want to read up on my motives, musings, and all that.

Well, I finally got duped into starting sigmarines (after reading up on the fluff, I've decided it's largely doffy (like most AOS seems to be now ) BUT I do like parts of it, namely, as 1d4chan puts it: That they are Necron Space Marines, with emotion)










I like the Brass/Blue mix and the models, but I'm still hunting for C&C before I start on the bulk of the models.

You are the first (and only) person I know who does!

And as a tiny update, I have been slowly converting my Blood Warriors from the AoS Starter to have twin axes. It has not been easy or fun, as I am rather bad at conversions and terrible with greenstuff.

I have 5 more Starter Blood Warriors, but I am holding off on assembling them until I get some Blood Warrior boxes so I can mix-and-match a bit easier to make them more unique.

I of course love the color scheme (my stormcast are stormhost silver with the same teal blue)! My big suggestion is find something else to replace the white. Not only is white a PAIN to paint, but it can be easily replaced with something more interesting. Try a bright silver or a gold on the shield lightning bolts, and consider having the cloaks the same color inside and out.

Painting looks very good too!

So close to the Murderfist Tribe or the Iron Horde. Wouldn't take much to make it into one of those, if you cared to follow any of the existing factions.

Finished off a Daemon Prince of Nurgle this week. I wanted something a bit different from the usual plastic kit (already have a couple of those for other forces of Chaos), so went with the Horius Heresy model from Forge World.



Incidentally, this model is dead easy (and quick!) to paint, and would recommend it to anyone wanting a variant Daemon Prince for their Nurgle force.



Oh, and for Age of Sigmar - just double its Wounds and wound brackets to reflect its size and Nurgleness (we do the same thing for the Forge World Great Unclean One).

@Davor it's looking great! I would neaten the base edge with a coat of black paint, and on the skin take Reikland Fleshwash, a detail/layer brush and just paint it in any deep recesses, like the cracks in the fingers and the tops of the finger nails. It should really add some depth to the skin of the model.

I had to cut and re-angle most of the leg joints, in order to change the pose from standing to moving. The whole model is tilted slightly forward as well. For the weapon pose, I used one of the cocked arms from the sprue (the one with the sickle), cut it off at the wrist and attached the glaive hand to it with a bit of wire and modelling putty. Then I cut off large parts of the neck and attached the head directly to the torso, a bit lower than normal, to give it a more hunchbacked appearance. The horns were way to prominent for me, so I used only the tips and fitted them behind the skull with some more putty.

All that's left to do now is finding a pair of ram horns, add a point to the other end of the glaive (because that part was originally stuck in a rock) and closing all the remaining gaps.

Tomorrow I'll try and make better pictures, including the backside, so you guys can see how all the parts align.

If you are good at cutting metal, I would recommend a "harvester of saluel" model from confrontation, he has a good set of rams horns on his helmet.

Short Preview of whats to come: (Hint: I just got my hands on the new WD, one week after it sold out!)


Spoiler:


"Lord Khagast!"
Hearing the doors open, the men clustered around the burning throne turned. Standing in the archway, their silhouettes illuminated from behind by the fires raging outside, stood three figures.
The cry was heard again:
"Lord Khagast!"
The man closest to the throne stepped forward. He was presumably their leader, his armored frame wrapped in rich silk that had, until this evening, adorned the walls of the throne room.
"Who dares speak my name."
He spoke softly, his voice barely audible over the crackling of the flames. He to a step forward, his footfalls echoing about the hall. His followers, clustered behind him, begann inching their way towards the exit.
The intruder spoke.
"Azag the Wanderer, Curse of Gyran, Shadow of Nurgle and Lord of Heruzlem wishes to make his presence known!"
Khagast stopped. He had heard tell of Azag, slayer of Men, Aelves and Gods alike, and many stories of his deeds had been told around the campfires of his warriors. He knew that Azag was one to be reckoned with.
Khagast laughed.
"I am Lord Khagast, Drinker of Blood, Bringer of Death (Couldn't resist a Terry Goodkin reference .)! I crossed the wilds of Ghur, destroyed the Fortress of Thorns and have now laid waste to Sarep in the name of Khorne!" He drew his sword. "I killed Karsten Quickfingers, last of the Kings of Sarep, and burned his throne! This tapestry that i clothe myself with was, until recently, his complete lineage, which I alone have ended! My warriors have destroyed the last remnants of his armies, and are now burning his city. Sarep is gone, and it is Khorne that may delight in its destruction, and not the twisted monstrosity you call a God!" With this last word, he charged at the men standing in the doorway, screaming an indecipherable battle cry as he did so.
The intruder remained unmoving.
"Azag is already here."
Khagast dropped to the floor. His followers rushed towards him, but stopped as they saw the figure standing over him. Clad in green-brown armor that seemed to change its exact hue as they stared at it, pulled its sword out of their leaders back.
"Azag..."
The men bowed their head, some dropping to the floor in anguish. Although followers of Khorne, they knew when they had found an enemy even they could not hope to overcome.
Azag turned.
And spoke:
"I am Azag the Wanderer, Curse of Gyran, Shadow of Nurgle, Lord of Heruzlem. I have killed Lord Khagast, Drinker of Blood, Bringer of Deat, who crossed the wilds of Ghur, destroyed the Fortress of Thorns and who laid waste to Sarep in the name of Khorne, killed Karsten Quickfingers, last of the Kings of Sarep, and burned his throne." He wiped the blood from his hands "I am now lord of Sarep, and all within it, including you. Just as I destroyed the followers of Khorne in Marienburg." The men at his feet had never heard of such a place, but remained where they where.
"But I have not come to shed more blood. I am above such primitive practices. No, I have come for a tribute."
Azag paused. He glanced at the Bloodbound.
"Who offers themselves willingly?"
His laughter echoed around the chamber.

To be continued...

If people are actually interested I can post pics that are actually decent and not taken from Whatsapp I'm just posting them to justify the next part of my post.



Is there a painting guide or at least a rundown of colours used for those sexy, sexy Bloodletters? I love the harmony of the colours. For the first time I want the plastic 'letters for their own sake and not just to use their legs in conversions On my own I'd start to wetblend the swords when they're clearly just basecoat, wash, edge highlight, however, so I need a guide to restrain myself.

Also, just wanted to get a few opinions.
Finally started to paint my sylvaneth army and wanted to start with the 30 dryads first.

Should I keep them all the same colour or should I mix it up a bit so there's variation in the units?
While I like the uniform look of an army, I feel that there may be slight variations in the colours.

I would just have a spot colour that identifies them as being part of the same unit, Jackal. So maybe colour each unit's leaves/runes differently?

That would work actually.
I wanted to keep them uniformed while keeping a natural look to them all.

Or keep the runes/leaves the same and paint them with different colour wood. You could try giving some birch bark (dunno how) and others with gnarled, oaky wood, but give them all blue runes to show they are all part of the same awakening.

Got that?

Loving all the inspiration here. Nothing to report for myself, been focusing on 40k for a bit, playing my first actual game in 16 years today to see if I want to invest fully in AOS or split between the two.

On a project note, if I decide to go full in on AOS and skip 40k, I'm highly considering starting another faction as I'm not sure Flesh Eater Courts really appeal to me playstyle-wise (I was never a fan of a lot of chaff troops), but painting skin is a lot better than painting flat armor. I'm highly considering a Nurgle project that's going to be a throwback to the old Realm of Chaos; a mix of daemons, mortals (Blightkings, love those models), maybe Beastmen and Skaven (Pestilens of course) all together in one large filthy, putrid warband, or if I don't go that route then it might be Ironjawz and/or Bonesplitterz done with a WoW-esque theme, haven't yet decided. The Nurgle idea sounds like it'd be loads more fun and visually appealing

Its 2000 points matched play.
-Vamp on Zombie Dragon
-Necromancer
-10-man Zombies x3
-Mourngul x3
-60 points in reserve to summon either 10 more zombies or a cairn wraith, based on the needs of the scenario.

Bases are square to keep costs down, this whole army ran me $125 and round-basing everything could easily have kicked that up by 30% or so.

I've finally started to put a dent in my Bonesplittas.
Looks like about 2/3 of them painted. I got started, stopped and a few weeks ago started again. I'm only painting 5 models at a time right now and it's keeping me from getting frustrated or overwhelmed.
I figure I'm 15 to 20 models behind schedule, we lost power for about 2 and a half days last week, due to the hurricane.
When I get them all table top ready I'll post them to my blog and post a link to those pictures.
I'm still not decided about how I want to base them and I'm trying to come up with some interesting warpaint ideas for them.

I'll start getting through things then get distracted massively with either another project or something completely different.

Had a unit of spites on the desk for over a week now and only around half way.

To make it worse I got over 150 zombies still to assemble, let alone paint.

I think my collection is only just above 90 models 90 + the few characters. But the boar riders.. should count as two models.
I'm getting close to being able to put them on the table and my copy of Silver Tower has just come in. another 50+ models to paint! If I get these done that's next months project!!!
I am really looking forward to playing some games of both.

So I only got one day this week to do some hobby stuff because of work. That said I got the last 10 bases in (no pic, but nothing exciting).  I got 45 of the Horses built and stopped because the 10 bases needed to dry, and 45 is enough for a 1.5k list.  Started to sand the bases and got 20 done before I got another distraction.  


So one of the other players saw my Army and left.  When he came back he said that he only bought it for the Sorceress and didn't need the rest of the kit.  So this got added to my force.  Of course I had to start putting him together, and admittedly, might end up painting him sooner than later as well.

Really did do well so the basecoat is drying now lol.


Did however die turn 6 to another lord of khorne who managed to get a wound through, followed by a roll of 6 with his mighty axe of khorne, sending it I to oblivion :(

I like how the red markings on their blue tabards look, it really helps distinguish them as a unique band of soldiers. The slightly muted tone of the blue, meanwhile, helps that their heraldry doesn't take away from the magnificence of their armaments. Truly these are valiant warriors,, standing disciplined and ready to bring retribution upon the barbarous hordes that assail the fair lands of their king!

I'm working on a 1,500 point Ironjawz army for an upcoming tournament. I still have a TON of priming and painting to do, but I'm pretty happy with the way the army is looking. I'm not a huge fan of the Orruk Megaboss or his $40 price tag, so I'm working on a conversion using the Disney Infinity Green Goblin as a base. I added a ton of Orruk themed bits. I think it'll tie in pretty well when I get some painting done. He's big, but I think that's ok. The army could use a chunky model.

The barrel he's holding is his Battle-Brew artefact.

I must admit, they do line up rather nicely, but this guy's more a follower of the "excessive pain"-creed than the "extreme narcissism" that Slaanesh is more known for Also, it'd be a bit silly for him to carry a hand mirror on a chain, wouldn't it?

Have you considered giving him a whip instead? It seems like a more Slaanesh-y weapon than a big ball of metal on the end of a chain.

Something like this, maybe?

Whatever you decide to do, I'm sure it'll be awesome. The model looks really nice already.

More Chaos! Chaos is All-Consuming!!








MOAR CHAOS!









The Slaughterpriest was my weekend project, the images rally don't do the mini justice. Just the highlights on the chest (My first attempt at painting that skin colour, and my first human mini with that much skin) took a few hours, and the brass was time consuming as well. The bell was more straight-forward, there are only really seven (YAY Nurgle!) colors on it, the wood, the bronze and silver, the blue (verdigris), the orange (rust) and the green of the warpstone and smoke. Its size was hard, and painting all that rope was one of the most annoying things i have encountered in my years of painting. But still, they turned out great, and I've been able to field them once already. Enjoy!

I'm sure there's a little more to paint that hasn't come to mind now. And of course still plan to add War Paint/ Body paint as an end goal.

Here's the start of my current project, a warband of Liberators for skirmish gaming, with a mix of weapons across the unit. I wanted to make them have more personality and look a little less like fantasy cybermen, so I am using bare-headed Space Marine heads on some of them, and the rest will get Retributor helms with the face painted in fleshtone to look more like open-faced helms. I think the added humanity makes them look eerie, because alongside other minis they look like regular people, but massive.

This is my test mini using the monopose that comes with the getting started book- I wanted more of a knightly look, so I went with a dark, bare metal, with shoulders and a shield that would look more heraldic. Still deciding on an emblem for the shoulder pad, thinking of using the four-pointed star from the Liberators, but with a black half on the green and a white half on the black.






This is my barebones conversion of the Lord Relictor, using a Retributor head and a Grey Knight standard topper, as I always thought the existing icon on the mode was ludicrously oversized. I thought after the fact that it might make a great Lord-Veritant with a weapon swap, also.

"Umm, Alarielle, who's that guy? He doesn't seem quite right..."

"Oh that's just my crazy uncle Jimbo. Don't worry, he's harmless. Occasionally."



Of course the real travesty here is how those robed humanoids make it more difficult to see the excellent shading of the skulls. The contrasting yet similar color of the bone against the perfectly highlighted ground is truly something to be admired.

It would be fun to play a narrative game with all these guys fighting together, don't you think!?


That scenario is ready made for you.

Just need a village setting, lots of poor villagers who count as Victory points and a horde of raiders hell bent on killing them..

Hi! So, I've decided to actually start an AoS project, tentatively.

the issues: i don't have to many fantasy models, and the ones I do have are Brets! specifically, I have about twenty footmen, twenty archers, two... damsels, i think, and five knights. So it's small and an army that they basically dropped, from what I've heard?

issue 2: i am not able to spend that much money right now for a variety of reasons. No new stormcast for me, or at least not for a while.

Is this enough to work out some games?

Yes, for core (non GHB) AoS you should be fine, just find an opponent who plays similar size and you should be GTG.

Its a bit of a pain to rebase whole units/armies from square bases to round bases, but in the end its a good result based on the amount of effort taken to rebase, and gives you a beter base from which to add round based models to your previously square based army. And I'm sure Bottle will go googly-eyed over seeing square based models being rebased to round bases!




















Base.

I say forget 25mm bases. Seems like everything will go to 32mm. If 40K is going to 32mm I can see AoS going to 32mm bases as well. So is that an option for you?

I tried congrats on 32s, but they look stupid. I judge the correct base by its ability to sureound the whole models silhouette from above. My WoCs, Skaven heroes and weapon teams on 32s, with the Chaos Lords (or equivalents) on the bigger terminator sized ones.

Neither 40k nor AoS are moving to 32mm bases. You won't see an Imperial soldier on a 32mm base and you won't see a Goblin or Skeleton on a 32mm base.
Super-humans in atomic powered servo-armour or chaos-infused barbarians, though? Yeah, they go on 32mm.

The consistency of overall tone across the bases between the two units really ties them together! That the cavalry bases are so much less obscured by the lumpy objects above them is a big plus too. Not to mention the excellently random-but-not-too-random placement of static grass!

Thanks man! I usually don't deviate much from official schemes so it was nice to come up with one myself. I think the ginger hair works well with the green, and green is my weakest colour so it was good to try and improve that too (I highly recommend the Waywatcher green glaze to get a rich colour).

i'm currently still doing some rebasing. most of the archers are done! (huzzah) but I can't do too much about the knights because I don't have any oval bases. I do really like how the archers look on the round ones though, nice and skirmishy.

I'm coming up with a vague backstory as I always like to do, these Brets aren't going to be quite Brets, less peasant conscripts and more a citizen militia, if that makes sense.
