Had a thought this weekend - with everyone messing around with Age of Sigmar, might it be fun if we posted what projects we are currently working on? With luck it may get some ideas passed about, and you might just get that last bit of encouragement it takes to get a model finished!

Bonus points if you back up your reports with photos of work in progress and the finished articles!

To kick off...

On the painting table I currently have a clutch of Bloodbound characters - the Aspiring Deathbringer, the alternate (with shield) Exalted Deathbringer, Slaughterpriest, Skullgrinder, Miss Valkia and Skarr Bloodwrath. The idea here is that I can put the Bloodbound to bed and get cracking with other forces. Aside from the Skarbrand, Skullreapers, Wrathmongers and Mighty Skullcrushers that have not been done yet...

Also got Festus half done, along with a couple of other Rotbringers that have only been undercoated.

Next stage - sort out the aforementioned Skullreapers and Wrathmongers, do another unit of Plaguebearers and Bloodletters (really quick and easy to do, will be the last lesser daemons I need for a while), and carry on with the long-running project, the Chaos Dreadhold. Managed to put together the gate and a few walls over the weekend;



So, what is everyone else up to?

Is there a codex out for vampires yet? I was thinking about updating my old army for the game, but need a codex before I start and can see the lists to build an army.

Couldn't really see anything on the GW that looked like the right book.

@MongooseMatt, really nice force!

Looking forward to seeing what you do with that dreadhold wall.

@Fenrir, it would have been better to create a topic for that question rather than put it on a unrelated one.

Carrying on, Age of Sigmar doesn't use codexes anymore but allows free downloads for your armies.

As for me, I've already talked about my campaign map so I posted links to my Bretonnian army (still a WIP) where I'm currently making a knight for each realm and a link to my army's backstory on how it came to AoS. (Caution: lots of reading)

We're knee deep in our Brimstone campaign using Azyr Comp.

My painting focus has shifted to getting my 40k campaign army ready. Around spring I will be painting up the chaos fortress. I have the whole thing minus three towers but I'm fine with that i suspect it will take me all spring to conclude.

How's that second mortgage coming along, mate?

Seriously, it's looking good so far. Can't wait to see it painted up. Say what you want about the Sigmarines but the new terrain GW has put out for AoS has been really good.

I myself am painting up some Warriors of Chaos. I have about 48 Warriors, ~16 Mauraders, 20 Chaos Hounds, 5 Knights, 6 Skullcrushers, a Hellcannon, a Chaos Lord and a Sorceror in need of paint. It's going to be a looooong autumn.

I have lots of projects on the go! (I was going to start 40k AdMech but Age of Sigmar came along and threw that all out the window!)

Anyway, a quick rundown of the projects on the go:

Project 1 - Death army - here are the painted troops right now:




On the painting table:
- Cairn Wraith
- Hexwraiths

My Death army picture was number 1 in the Games Workshop flickr pool a week ago:



Project 2 - Re-basing my Empire army (this was my 8th edition army)



Re-basing is a loveless task! I still have 10 Swordsmen, 5 Outriders and a cannon to rebase...

Project 3 - Duardin! Having fun finally being able to play with my old BFSP models.



Now all these projects are big, so in the meantime I am combing all the models into a single force called "Siegfried's Desperados":



And if you would like to find more out about this force, I made my own Battletome, which you can find here.

It's a great time to be in the hobby

I'm currently painting up my Empire Army for Armies on Parade and a local Escalation League stating early November. I am also building a display board for my brother and myself. My brother is entering his Bloodbound and we are doing two separate display boards that join up into one big display. Empire are defending their fort from the Bloodbound who are pouring out of a Realm Gate. Unfortunately no pics as they are on my phone.

To date I have painted:
2 Generals (Sword and Shield)
20 Swordsman (Full Command)
20 handunners (Full Command)
8 Greatswords (Full Command)
1 Wizard (Jade)
1 Priest
1 Cannon and Crew

Currently on the painting table (to be completed by the 24th):
1 General (Standard bearer)
4 Wizards (Bright, Amethyst, Heavens, Misc)
13 Greatswords
2 2x2 display boards

Mostly just trying to polish off my Stormcast Eternals from the starter set, though I did cave and buy 2 more boxes of Liberators. One box of which has them all with dual wield hammers. Not sure where to go with the other box. Suggestions? I'm thinking dual wield sword and parry blades.My painting has recently been derailed by a rather large Imperial Knight Warden kit, stomping its way to my hobby table for my birthday.

Here is my kinda current project. I went deep when AoS came out (quiting all gw 3 years prior)

Last remaining thing to paint is 5 Paladin Protectors. My Dropzone commander kind of slipped in though and took over last week.

I also have a mass amount of khorne that is 99% bare (so many things to paint..)

And my third (god help me last) AoS project is ForestSpirit Warhost but with a twist. I use the AzyrComp ruleset for armies so I build my forces off that. It will be a mix of spirits, mostly bad. All the Dryads, treemen, and banshees, and vampire count spirit hosts. Theme is haunted woods that want vengeance. Possibly might have wood elves, but they will be painted like ghosts

I picked up two boxes and went dual hammers and dual blades too - I want to add the blade/shield combo at some point, but with two units (from the starter set) with shields, the dual weapons seemed to be the way to go.

This weekend I'm actually working on the first draft primer for the Age of Sigmar event for NOVA 2016.

We got some great feedback from the last year's attendees and looking to make things even better with a multi-game nightly narrative campaign where two forces will fight for control of the realms, and a 3 game, one day tournament.

I am also working on getting a blog setup to finally get some battle reports posted, so if you have any particular mission requests you'd like to see played out by all means let me know!

More piccies and painting notes here: https://ttgamingdiary.wordpress.com/2015/10/16/the-usual-khorne-spects/

Next up on the painting, and hoping to get them more or less done over the weekend (these are simple models, so not too daunted about their numbers);

5 Wrathmongers
5 Skullreapers
10 Bloodletters
10 Plaguebearers
3 Nurgling bases

Also have Festus the Leechlord half done - he may get put to one side in preference for the above units, but should be able to get at least a few more colours on him!

Speaking of Heroes, I got a batch of Death Heroes done for my Death army:



I also got to play my Death models as a complete army for the first time this friday at the local GW. We had a 4 player game of around 35 wounds each. It was very fun :-D



Onto current projects, here's what I have been working on this weekend:



More Empire coming off the square bases!



And here's the round bases they will be moved onto.



Here are some already on the round bases. The bases are awaiting a wash, drybrush, static grass etc (and a touch up to their boots).



I really enjoyed painting the Duardin cannon from my old Battle For Skull Pass set, so I decided to paint another batch of stunties. The Grudge Pony looks sweet on an oval base, I must admit :'-)



Two High Elf characters I am working on. I hate finecast. This was my first experience with the stuff and it has been horrible. At times I am tempted to just throw these models in the bin, but I'll keep working on them and hopefully they'll polish up with more time spent on them.



Some Hexwraiths I am working on. Only the metals are finished right now. They were going to be purple/pink to match the skeletons, but they looked like the Grim Reapers of Ribena, so I decided they will be black to match the Cairn Wraith instead. Another coat of Eshin Grey (I start my blacks with grey) is needed to get rid of the pink.

So, there are all my current projects! What about you guys?

I... think I need that grudge pony. Not for any particular army, it just looks so neat.

Awesome work as always, Bottle. You do your bases in a similar way to me, but put a lot more work into them (it shows!). Might have to revise the way I do things myself...

I finished off another ten Bloodletters and Plaguebearers this weekend, along with another three Nurgling bases - with 30 of each of the lesser daemons, I think that is about all I will need in the foreseeable future as in the published campaigns, daemons tend to get used as support forces for the Bloodbound, Rotbringers and Bleak Horde. That said, I have an idea to create a brand new campaign with Valkia on one of her hunting expeditions - need to figure out who she is fighting though.

I also just about finished a unit of Skullreapers and Wrathmongers, need to do just a few details and their bases to wrap them up. Piccies should be done around the middle of the week!

Next on the table will be some Chaos Hounds and a Blood Throne, and I might have to do Skarbrand as well. Oh, and I have some Plague Toads and Pox Riders to put together as well... However, we have a group painting day coming this weekend, and I might take that opportunity to do the Malefic Gate and wall sections of the Dreadhold I put together a short while ago (top of this thread, actually - good to see the progress!).

Finally, I had a bit of 'luck' on eBay this weekend. I have been after a bunch of Chaos Warriors to act as the foot troops of both the Rotbringers and Bleak Horde (the Bloodbound do just fine with their Bloodreavers and Blood Warriors), but aside from a little unit of 12 I managed to pick up a little while ago, I kept getting outbid. So, this weekend I decided I would take no prisoners and put a bid on every Chaos Warrior lot I could find.

Yeah, you guessed it, they all came in So, now I have the best part of 100 Chaos Warriors on their way, which will more than cover what I planned to do for the Rotbringers and Bleak Horde. Not sure what to do about the remainder. Could just have more for both Nurgle and Tzeentch, I suppose. Don't think there is much point making them Slaanesh, as when that force appears once more, I am guessing it will be with a whole new miniatures range...

^ I've recently put together a Skull Cannon myself. I took the Herald for the Throne and put him on a 40mm base to use as my Bloodletter Hero, to go along with my 20 Bloodletters, which I also switched to 32mm bases. Saved me a few bucks and I think he looks pretty good. Haven't started painting the cannon yet but sure does look like a lot of little parts.

I've been finishing up a general Khorne force, which includes the starter box, war hounds, Bloodletters and Bloodcrushers. I just put an order in for some Plague Monks and Plaguebearers to start a Nurgle force, not sure on how big I will expand that one.

Speaking of Nurgle, last week I managed to bag the eBay deal of the year. I have been wanting a Great Unclean One for my Nurgle force for a while as the war in the Realm of Life kinda needs one (if you are following the storyline). However, the current Great Unclean One is not... completely awesome, especially when put alongside the Bloodthirster. It is too small and almost looks like Gardus could step on it! So, that meant getting the Forge World version, but there was no way I was going to lash out the £120-odd it costs.

(I had seen one of these models on a bring and buy stand at a show earlier this year for £50, and was kicking myself that I had not picked it up).

I had been looking for one on eBay but, being a cheapskate, I kept getting outbidded the few times one popped up, even when they were missing the odd part.

Until I went onto eBay Poland - last week I managed to snatch one for little more than £30, including postage, and it arrived today!

The question, I guess, is whether it is a recast - and having looked at it, I have no idea. The weight 'feels' genuine, and the seller does not have more on sale. I have therefore decided not to think too much about that, and instead concentrate on how I am going to paint it.

Moral of the Story: eBay is your friend!

Bit torn... the completionist in me would love that as the perfect centrepiece, though I'm not huge on the model. But the price is hard to justify, and I don't actually like assembling and painting big models. For the same cost I could get a few boxes of regular troop types, and they bring me more hobbying joy.

In that case, for a bit of daemonic leadership, you can't really go wrong with Valkia

I've been kicking around the idea of a "Forrest primeval" army.

It would be an army of Bacchus (using Daemon Prince rules,) with sylvaneth forces, beastman, and Forrest goblins.

pretty much treemen, dryads, spider riders, gors/ungors/bestigors, Wolves, giant spider, and will-o-the-wisps. (using spirit base rules.)

The background would be a Native entity (Bacchus) raising up forces of everything that lives in the Forrest to fight the incursion of Nurgle into the plane of living. His questionable apperance gives good reason for him and his army to fight most armies.

Finished off the Wrathmongers and Skullreapers last night;



More piccies and painting notes here: https://ttgamingdiary.wordpress.com/2015/10/22/skullreapers-wrathmongers/

Was going to do more of these guys, but there is not much variation in the kit (other than the Skullreaper/Wrathmonger split) and the joy of AoS is that if you don't want to do certain models, there is no gaming reason to do so!

It turns out that our group painting day is going to be next weekend, so the addition to the Dreadhold is going to have to wait a bit longer. However, I have just put together Skarbrand, a Great Unclean One, a Maggoth Lord and a bunch of Chaos Warhounds, so I have plenty to be getting on with! I have also almost completed Festus (will be done this weekend) and I have nearly 100 Chaos Warriors (don't ask...) on their way from eBay, which I might get to leapfrog over the other models if they arrive before the weekend.

Busy, busy, busy!

Oh, and everyone else see that AoS seems to be getting another release window in a couple of weeks?

Nice pics! I finished my Bloodletter Herald from the Skull Throne box and am taking a breather on all this red and lava I've been painting and switched gears to some Plague Monks. It's nice to paint green. I got a box of them with Plaguebearers, and depending on which unit I like to paint more will probably determine if this is a Pestilens-heavy army or a Nurgle-heavy army.

I must say my order got literally run over by a truck on its way to me - Canada Post gave it to me in a bag, as the box had been destroyed. Somehow the sprues all got bent out of shape and snapped but the actual bits I needed had a 95% survival rate, and it was easy enough to glue two swords back together to make it out without casualties.

I had hoped to get more done, but if I can spare a few hours this coming week, I am hoping to also finish off a bunch of Chaos Warhounds (just need their horns and faces completing), a Blood Throne of Khorne (bigger than you might think, but also quicker to paint than you might think), and maybe, just maybe, Skarbrand as well.

I also managed to get a whole bunch of 'prep' work done for future models, mainly building and basing - a veritable horde of Chaos Warriors and Gors, along with the Glottkin, which had been sitting in its box for a long time, making me feel built every time I walked past!

This weekend, however, I have a big project planned - a substantial portion of the Chaos Dreadhold...

Nice work there, Bottle! Those Servants of Sigmar (since Empire is dead in AoS) look fantastic

@Matt: Great work on the Leechlord! Always liked that model. Has just the right amount of Nurgle to it without being OTT.

Actually they are misfits and sell-swords operating out of Azyrheim ;-)

As new models get painted up the Altdorf uniform will slowly get phased out.

Wasn't going to post these, but ended up being quite pleased how they turned out - a full unit of Chaos Warhounds.

Also managed to get the wings done on Skarbrand, but it may be the weekend before he is complete. However, the Blood Throne had its base done last night and is just waiting for a few details - will be done tonight or tomorrow night!

The Blood Throne is an awesome model. I like the skullcannon variant much more mostly because it doesn't have the two bloodletters in front of it.

@Matt: Last night I was going through the old 4th edition 40k book and the kill team rules left me with the impression that they'd not be out of place reworked for AoS. You may want to have a glance at them as your next Battleplan. Alternatively if you can't, I could do it (mainly because I want to see a battle report with them and to tell the truth I won't play it myself), but I'm sure I'll be doing a much sloppier job than you.

I'm almost finished painting my Stormcast from the starter set. I won't bother posting a picture because they look exactly like every other gold-and-blue sigmarine. I was thinking of breaking out with my next set of Liberators and going for one of the purplish-crimson ones (Astral Templars or Celestial Warbringers). Is there a place where the set of paints used to get that color is mentioned?

Magnetising Liberators. Just because I can and don't feel like setting with just one option. Though hammers seem to be better than swords. Unless 2+/4+ is better than 3+/3+ while fighting multi wound creatures.

Going to paint these as Astral Templars later on.

Though I have to say I dislike this new model design in general. I mean, knife A has to be slotted on body A and will not fit on body B. :|

They are nearasdammit the same (3+/3+ has a slight edge, but it is tiny for most Liberator unit sizes) - sword or hammers really comes down to personal preference rather than target

Say you have a unit of 30 Liberators (because this is how large you have to get before the difference starts coming through), they rush in against Nagash and, just supposing they all get to fight, dish out 60 attacks.

With swords (2+/4+), 50 hit and, of those, half will Wound - so, 25 saves needed.

With hammers (3+/3+), 40 hit, and two thirds will wound - so, 26 saves-ish, could round up to 27.

And that is with _30_ Liberators, remember

There is only a real difference between swords and hammers if you start applying re-rolls, and then it depends on whether you re-roll hits or wounds... Basically, go with what you like best.

I've decided to start my first AoS mini! I followed Painting Buddhas tutorial video and following Ben is just great, even if you feel super deriative. I like it so far, especially since it's only my sixth mini this year after I don't know how many years of not-painting. Wait, I finished a half-done mini last year! Wooohoo, take THAT, backlog Two of those minis wre 1:72 Vikings, but hey. Painting individual blood trails from a gouged eye in 1:72 takes al ot of time, too. Still struggling with the loaded brush, but I'm starting to think that the paper on my wet pallette is crap and needs to be replaced every day to stop it from getting its coating into the paint, that might be the reason why brush loading only works when I start with a new mini. After switching it mid-painting yesterday it it began working again.


Calves are proving troublesome, sadly, despite me loving the knee which is also round and should be the same difficulty to paint?! The thigh is finished, nor are the bolts of lightning on his shoulder pad. I kept painting but I literally missed my bus because of it yesterday and *still* didn't finish that second shoulder pad









I'm having trouble with the new imgur design, I can't find a resize option anymore, so you'll have to excuse badly lit cellphone pictures scaled with paint, which makes them kinda gritty and washed out looking. So many word to say "be gentle, please"

PS: Since you can't mix NMM with normal metals I'll have to paint some of my Sigmarines in NMM and some in regular gold. Good thing then that I have a second dracoth rider and starter Prosecutors to turn into flying Spartans, eh. But then I'd like to have the Spartarines in NMM, so I might have to cut of his halo and give him a horsehair crest. Don't you just love good planining before painting, huh?

6 bases metal spirit hosts
60 metal ghouls
60 plastic skeletons
3 Vampire lordes on horses (metal)
2 metal wraiths
31 old dire wolves
40 plastic zombies
70 metal grave guard
3 metal necromancers
89 metal armored skeletons
1 metal winged nightmare
1 metal zombie dragon
6 bases of metal bat swarms
9 metal blood knights
30 cursed metal cursed company
2 metal varghulfs
2 metal banshees
4 metal wights
9 metal fell bats
20 plastic black knights
1 metal Heinrich Kemmler
1 metal vampire standard
1 metal Vlad Von Carstein
1 metal wight lord standard.

I reeeeealy like metals, as I'm sure you can tell. I'm hoping to get this whole force assembled, based, primed, and painted in the next year. Wish me luck!

Heh

There is a little trick to it. I like watching TV after work as much as the next guy - however, I find it very difficult to just sit there and veg out. Always want to do something with my hands.

Enter painting!

Give me a DVD box set or a new release on Netflix, and I'll crank out an entire army The recent Nurgle models were powered by The Following and The Last Kingdom...

The only real distraction is the xBox, but I seem to play that less these days. The key, I think, is to occupy your mind. If you can do that, you can paint for hours.

I will post some progress pics when I get home, but I cannot for the life of me match up the Astral Templars paint scheme.



I used Rhinox Hide mixed with Xereus Purple as a basecoat, but there is no single color that will accurately create those highlights as seen in the studio scheme.

I tried lightening up the basecoat mix with some Genestealer Purple, but it was not enough to get it to stand out and was too subtle. I then mixed straight Genestealer with Xerus Purple, but the result wound up being more pink than the studio highlight.

Moreover even a straight black wash with Nuln oil is barely detectable on the model.

Granted I did this all on a test model. I'm leaning close to just scrapping the idea of Astral Templars and maybe going with Celestial Warbringers with or without the upgrade kits:

I finally settled on a scheme I like for my Stormcast. It's basically ripping off the Tampa Bay Lightning colours. So I'm repainting my Stormcast while also bolstering Chaos.

Finished Plague Monks, some Plaguebearers, Liberators and Retributors recently. Just got in the mail some more Plaguebearers and a Lord of Plagues. Can say for sure I'm painting more than ever with AoS. It encourages me to buy what I like. Even one unit from any faction can work in my armies. I'm thinking of throwing some Beastmen into my Chaos mix next, but also want Spider Riders, Ogres... There's too much. I found what used to happen with me is I'd survive a couple units into an army and just not have the will to finish 2,000 points. With this system I can dance around wherever my inspiration takes me.

There does not seem to be any official painting guides for these guys...

I have been messing around with a deep purple Manticore of late. For the really deep base, perhaps try Naggaroth Night with Druchii Violet shading. As for the highlighting... I might start looking at the Lilac they do to begin with...

I've always found the cotton smoke/fire terrain very striking (and very easy to make). The table is very much in tone with the brimstone as I imagine it - dark from smoke clouds and the storm of sigmar, fires and barren ruins everywhere - perfect.

Seriously, absolutely no skill required Base coat Ironbreaker, then do two washes of Guilliman Blue.

That is honestly it - no highlighting, no little detailed brush work. Use the biggest brush you can!

My WoC are all Khorne flavoured and Iv'e found the same technique with red washes doesnt work quite as effectively, so I've had to do more edge highlighting and 'battle damage' style chips on the armour to get some the metallic effect to show through.
I have tried tinting some of my High Elves with blue armour but haven't been happy with the results, so scrapped it.

Nice painting work. Never thought I'd be saying this, but I'm tempted by the Helfort scenery pack. It's actually a decent savings on buying the pieces individually, and it's a heck of a cornerstone for my gaming table, which as of right now is populated by tumbled rocks and styrofoam.

For people who never thought they could justify spending money on scenery instead of more models, how did you get over that?

Not to answer for him, but to me it looks like a combination of three things: proper use of an airbrush, very thin paints and a steady hand. Without those last two you can't really do clean highlights. I know I'm not good enough at doing straight lines to get that clean look for line highlighting.

I know where you are coming from, as I used to be exactly the same - armies before terrain.

Be careful going down this path though, as it is a sickness. Once you start collecting terrain, you may not want to stop I think the hurdle to get over is a) you may have a great looking army, but it will always seem 'less' if you don't have a great looking table to match and b) you buy a new unit for your army, it may only be used once every few games, but a good piece of terrain may pop up in nearly every game...

I ordered that big $200 paint set from GW - my most expensive mini-related purchase yet. I was just severely lacking in a variety of paint. No greens or yellows or browns, and very specific army P3 colors for Warmachine that don't work well for other models (I also like the Citadel base colors better as they don't require 7 layers to get decent coverage). I was looking at $25 worth of paint for each new figure type I wanted to paint, with a lot of it being really small things like single dots of yellow for eyes. It doesn't cover ever color I want, but for small things like sword hafts, plumes, or eyes, it should be close enough. It's basically just a combination of the four paint boxes (base/shade/layer/dry), complete with the associated brushes, stuffed in that giant, overpriced project box. I'm actually a bit excited because there's been a bunch of figures (both GW and WMH) that I've put off painting because I lacked basic colors. I also a bit eager to try out the new dry paints - I love dry brushing.

Outside of the Gulliman Blue glaze for the wings (the paint box didn't have glazes or technical paints), I should finish my Prosecutors from the starter set today. Just the Lord Cellestant and Lord Relictor to go. Then I'm going to return to WMH to finish my Khador army (7 figures). I also have done any bases yet - like at all, including the fifty or so Warmachine models I've painted - so I'm eager to try that out, honestly.

So many awesome minis in this thread!

I finally ordered a copy of the AoS starter set. I'm doing a 30k 2nd Legion using Word Bearers rules, and had already picked up the Celestant Prime model for use as the Primarch. These Stormcast models are awesome IMO, and though they're meant to look angelic, they look at the same time demonic to me From the srtarter set, the Liberators I'm going to use as a Gal Vorbak squad. I'll have to see the sprues before I figure out how I'm gonna get the shooty weapons on there. The 3 Prosecutors are gonna make a Cataphracrii Command Squad for the Primarch, and I'll use the Lord Relictor for a Standard Bearer. Not sure what to do with the rest at this point.

Now realizing this is more of a 40k post than an AoS post, but I've been dreuling over the models for a while, and I'm psyched to get the box.

That is very nice work.

Read your work in the other thread too - was going to say that another way of motivating yourself to paint is to set dates for playing the scenarios in the starter set - and then making sure the models for them are done on time!

For my part, managed to finish the Glottkin off, so my Nurgle guys have some proper leadership now!

Just ordered the Stormcast Eternals side of the Starter Set, so only in the planning stage. I am going to go with Retributor Gold and gray-blue (think the blue color on Space Wolves), either with the gray-blue as the main or the accent, can't decide. The Dracoth of the Celestant is going to get colored like a timber wolf (gray top with white bottom). I think I am going to paint the wings of the Prosecutors like hawk wings (dark brown tapering to white).

Mym, nice model, almost makes me think a snow base would be real fitting though. You have way more dedication than me to do those kind of multi-highlights. I think the black/white/light blue contrast from above will look nice on the tabletop.

Atol, I really like the grey and black you did on the lord's cape.

Disco, nice Hellpit and I especially like the base.

Plague Monks proved so useful to me in-game that I've ordered another 20, along with a Plagueclaw Catapult. I'll be making 2 squads of 16 monks and then 8 censer bearers. Also ordered Blightkings, never though I would, but my Nurgle army needs more hitting power. I've loved painting these Plaguebearers but I find they do almost nothing in combat.

Thanks man. Appreciate it. The yellow is just averland sunset, washed twice with agrax earthshade, repainted with averland sunset again and highlighted another time with a diluted 60/40 averland sunset to white. I really didn't want anything too difficult going on there, so the whole model has two layers of agrax earthshade to speed up painting.

Agreed, very nice although I was going to say the same about the red on the slayer. However, an easier way to increase the contrast might just be to apply a wash to darken the crevices a bit, then re-highlight the raised areas to a similar shade you have now (or maybe just a "hair" brighter ).

Hi, I want to share with you my Stormcast Eternals, the Gods of War.

This is my converted Lord Celestant on Gryphoth and some of my Liberators. The first one is an example of the basic Liberator, with the converted Centurion crests; the second is my version of a helmet-less Stormcast and the third is my version of a female Stormcast. Subtly different but still feminine.

I thought a giant centerpiece would be just what I needed to kick off a new AoS army, so I shipped my Greater Chaos Dragon to myself in NOLA while visiting my sister in Arizona. (she was holding it for me.)



Instead I got a 3-D puzzle for Christmas! gonna need a bigger glue bottle.

Yikes on the breakage, but good silver lining.

That zebra dracoth is awesome! It actually makes me like the model. That's the only model from the starter set that I'm not even bothering to paint...something about it I'm just not a fan of. But with that paint job it looks great.

Also really like those Seraphon and that Savage Orc. Makes me really tempted to make my next purchase some orcs. I've been hobbying so much more with AoS, it's off the chain. There are so many cool, thematic army possibilities.

I'm still finishing up the Stormcast from the starter set while assembling some reinforcements for my Nurgle army. This is the first Blightking box I've bought and I see why they're a hit. All the customization options are a joy, as are the models themselves. It's the first time I can remember I chose to forgo a standard bearer or musician because I liked the normal weapon poses so much better. If I like painting them too, I could definitely see another box in my future.

The Blightkings are great - though I think the big bell guy is really iconic and just had to go with him!

Wait until you actually try them in a game though - so far I have only had them used against me (my own models too!), and they are nasty!

Thanks, it's actually no airbrushing at all and I did use texture, stirland mud and astrogranite. I'm a pretty tabletop standard painter, but have been hooked on bright, swirly bases recently.

Not sure if closeups will flatter the style.

For the Nurgle: Cover base in Stirland Mud, make pools and streams with Warpstone Glow, fill in those pools and streams (but not all the way) with Moot Green, and then in a corresponding smaller amount fill them in/make dots with Flayed One Flesh, finally flood the base in Waywatcher Green Glaze.

For the Stormcast: Cover base in Astrogranite, paint it all black, make lines and whatnot with Kantor Blue, fill in those lines but not all the way with Calgar Blue, and then a corresponding smaller line of Ceramic White.

For the Khorne: Cover base in Stirland Mud, make areas in it for lava to pool or flow, paint it all black, fill in spots with Khorne Red, fill in with a smaller amount with Evil Sunz Scarlet, another smaller fill in with Wild Rider Red, and then finally the correspondingly smaller Flash Gitz Yellow. Now, these are the ones I did first, and I realized partway through that I think I got the style of lava wrong, in that the yellow would be where it's hottest and the red where it's coolest, but oh well.

If I did it again, I'd definitely do the whole cork board thing I've seen in others' lava armies. I'm not sure what to get for basing materials though. Unfortunately I live in an area where I cannot physically access a hobby shop of any kind, so I have to order a bit blind on the internet. "Cork board" and "polystyrene" seem like common names thrown around for basing/terrain building, so I'm thinking of getting into that.

Those are great vids indeed. I didn't paint a whole lot when I was into the hobby as a teen. AoS got me back in so the last 6 months have been me re-learning everything. I've only begun exploring highlighting in the last couple of months. Lots of practice to go, and AoS has me more inspired to make all sorts of little war bands than I've ever been.

Finally caved in to my desire to do a haunted forest force. I wanted to go for a treeman army back when the big plastic treemen came out, but given I wasn't playing back then I never did. AoS readily goes for mixing stuff so the haunted forest has been beckoning and after getting bored of dino painting have found some old dryad sprues in the garage (from when they first got released as plastic). Bought a GW woods (can't be bothered making terrain) some spirit hosts and a banshee for now. Will add a treeman ancient later some more dryads and spirits and bat swarms.

Reasonable happy with the paint for the dryads, still experimenting with the bases. I'm wanting a marshy/swampy/flooded forest look but haven't done water effect type stuff before. Not sure my first batch are going to work out yet.

UHU seems to work well for spider web effects, though need to practice a bit more on that.

Like the new 32mm bases. That extra room is nice for putting some detail in.

Need to work out what model/scroll to use for the main dude(ess), Was wanting the evil sorceress in the evil forest, hag/witch/enchantress, type thing. Neferata has rules that I like and goes with the other undead, but not sure the big mount works though it would be a cool model. Isabella (drop the vlad rule) might go better. The dark elves might fit as well, looking at them I like the sound of the witch elves and cauldron of blood hidden in the 'dark forest', plus the models for the hag looks nice, though they are bit more combaty rather than magicy. Big hydra in the marsh land as well!

Obviously some goblin spider riders and the big spider are on the horizon - all haunted forests need big spiders.

Its the army painter ones I'm using. As someone who hasn't done any great mini stuff in a few years, and who never did more than throw a bit of static grass on, I find them very nice. But I only have a couple of variants at the moment so don't really have the more muted colors I would prefer for my feeble attempts at a marshy/flooded ground look.

If you know of some you think are better in some way then please let me know, I just went with what I found first and could get easily.

Got these 10 Duardin Thunderers finished off at last!

And I put together a quick guide on the steps I went through, as I work from White Undercoat so it's a method ever so slightly different from GW's Black Undercoat - Base - Wash - Base - Layer - Highlight approach as it cuts out half the steps (and so is great for a speed painting).

Spoiler:


Step 1 is to paint the highlight colour straight onto the white undercoat. For example with the flesh, where I would have started with 'Bugman's Glow' I now jump straight to 'Kislev Flesh'.

The advantage of the white undercoat is layer paints get good enough coverage straight away - and if the undercoat does poke through, it's white rather than black and so adds to the highlights later.


Step 2 is to apply all the washes. For example the flesh has Reikland Fleshshade painted onto it. Because the models were so bright to begin with this stage is akin to dipping. I think if the bases were tidied up this would make a fine table top standard.


Step 3 is to highlight all the colours, using that layer paint again and then mixing it 50/50 with Pallid Wytch Flesh for the final highlight. You can see the highlights are bold and crass under scrutiny, but from table-top eye level they look great and really pop.


Step 4 was to do all the NMM and finish the bases - viola!

@Bottle- thanks a ton for the step by step! I am definitely going to experiment with a white undercoat on the next army! Those are some incredible results.

@RiTides/Boss- Thanks for the kind words, as usual. I will be looking to get some kind of report out in 2016, haven't decided whether to make it a traditional battle report, or something else altogether.

Don't know about you chaps, but I managed to get a lot done over Christmas. A lot. I need to finish off some bases and whatnot, but it is going to end up being the best part of 200-odd minis when I am done!

I started off with a brand new Seraphon force, kicking off with the Skinks and their supporting cast. As always, painting notes and more piccies here: https://ttgamingdiary.wordpress.com/2015/12/31/skink-city/


Sixty Skinks and their leaders!


Death from above!


The heavy boys.


The leaders.


I really like this guy...

Wow Matt, I can't believe you painted a whole new army!

They look great. Skinks are great models and I love the skink theme you have running through your force!

@Red_Zeke thanks man, and I really do recommend white undercoat. Have some fun with it!

Skinks weren't the only things I managed to get done for the Seraphon - enter the Saurus Warriors!


As well as these chaps, I have the unit of 20 Warriors I did before Christmas as a 'test' for the army, and hope to have another unit of 20 (this time carrying spears) done next week!


Just had to slide a Carnosaur in - couldn't delay it any longer!


And you always need a floating frog...


Really like the Sunblood model too!

You crazy man Matt!

Can we get a shot of the Seraphon army? I think you put this together at record pace even for yourself.

Everything looks fantastic. Love the Jungle terrain too

Cheers!

Not quite finished yet - painting up two Stegadons and a Bastiladon right now, put some Saurus Guard together last night, and have just this minute re-based 18 Saurus Nights. Oh, and a Razordon too.

Think I will call it a day on the Seraphon after that, already larger than I had originally intended (eBay purchases ended up winning more Warriors and Skinks than I really wanted!).

Oh, and the jungle terrain is dead easy. Those pieces are all supplies bought from a fish shop, and then just mounted on bases flock to taste.

It only took one Saturday afternoon to do enough pieces to cover avtable very densely.

On my side of AoS I modeled a Rock Lobber for my O&G force.

Navarro thats an impressive stone golem dude you got there.(mantic take note lol).

I've finished some Plaguebearers and they are much bigger than I imagined so I put them on 32mm bases.

@Navarro wow, that is amazing!! What a great take on the rock lobber!

I really like your Forest Goblin conversions too!

@DiscoKing cracking paint job, I think you're best unit yet out of everything you've posted in this thread so far. They really suit the 32mm too!

Matt, you just pushed me over the edge on getting the "Start Collecting Seraphon" box. I was tempted when the rumor came up, but money is tight... but man... those are some sweet looking lizards...

Jealousy apparently drives me more than I'd like to admit.

Pretty much the reason I started this thread - we can all encourage one another to bigger and better things!

For my part, I have some more Beastmen to show...


Ungors and leaders of the horde!


The Boss.


And someone to throw some spells about...

Seeing as lizards are in at the moment, a couple of my dinos. I am about half way through a stegadon which is looking good - but as ever I got distracted onto the evil forest theme army.

This may annoy some people - the Seraphon was not the only new army I managed to get done over Christmas Enter the Skaven of Clan Snikkit!


Just a small force at the moment, but already 'viable' for some games.


Pretty much used Duncan's paint scheme from Warhammer TV for these guys.


eBay provided a solid gunline for the rats...


With a Grey Seer to lead them!

Wow Matt, fantastic work again! I also have a skaven army but it's still on sprue and likely won't see daylight till well into 2016.

You must have 7 or so AoS armies now?

Umm, let's see...

Khorne (Bloodhound and daemons, technically two different armies, though with a lot of crossover)
Bleak Horde (Tzeentch)
Rotbringers
Stormcast Eternals
Seraphon
Pestliens
Beastmen
Skaven
Sylvaneth

Think that is about it for now, though I have already started getting models together for Manfred's Undead Horde, as well as a tribe of Aleguzzlers. Oh, and the Everchosen...

Did you know?

Mongoose Matt is actually a collective hive-mind with 20 bodies but only one consciousness. That is why he has painted more armies in 6 months than I have in 20 years.

Wow, what a great looking army! Love it Andreas and think you've sold me on getting some Grave Guard for my Undead! :-)

Hmm, I'll take a look at that...

However, there really is no great secret. For the Skaven, for example, I simply used the guide on Warhammer TV (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vp_vdo0AFhI&index=18&list=PLEaPE4sLDA7s-26V0v6SepDFiznb3y6hx) and did 30-odd rats at once The only change I made was to swap the Abaddon Black cloth for Skavenblight Dinge.

Would recommend Duncan's guides on Warhammer TV to anyone - if you follow what he does, you really will get something close to what he demonstrates!

That man is a national treasure. If you ask me, he's GW's secret weapon. Finally finished painting all my Stormcast, and they look amazing (by my standard). "Two thin coats" is my mantra now.

Very cool - where is the rather lovely Vampire lady from? Is she a conversion?

She is indeed a conversion of some dark eldar+coven throne+banshee+green stuff.

On that note, I really needed a break from the undead army, so I painted a dark elf. I have a dream of owning a few different armies for AoS since it is so easy to get one done.
Here is the first test model.

Coming to the end of my Seraphon stint, and this army is way larger than I had first intended! Still, just got Saurus Guards and Knights to do now, with a few other odds and sods, and then it is back onto campaign forces!

However, managed to finish off another unit of Saurus Warriors and a Bastiladon last night!





I think I will be taking these chaps up to the Rotwater Blight event this weekend!

That Bastilladon is bloody brilliant!

Can I be a copycat and steal your recipe for those scales? I am in love with them and I might just use that for one of my dragons.

By all means - I pinched it from the Carnosaur in the Lizardman Painting Guide, so I cannot claim originality!
