Hi all,

I've been working on this army since AoS was released and have a ton of pictures that I've not been keeping a record/plog on. Thought it might be a good idea to kick one up, to show you my progress into the system that is AoS. My thoughts on the models and the game!

So here's how it all started out:


Basing up the boys!


Base colours going down on!


Started work on the flesh.

That's all for now folks. Up next: More work on the Bloodreavers, Mighty lord of Khorne (Mini conversion) & Much more!

Update Two:


More assembly!


Starting on the Skull reapers/Chosen, and Mighty lord. Slight conversion, swapping the hound over to his right.


WIP on the Lord!


More join the cause!

Went for a different skin tone on the second unit of bloodreavers to differentiate between the two.
Also started on my blood warriors. Seems I didn't take any progress shots though!



Bloodreavers almost there. Edging and highlights to go!


Thanks for taking a look!

Played a 2 v 2 AoS game with the majority of my army about 2 weeks ago now. Took a few snaps to share:


View from the Order battleline!


Battlelines drawn. Aelf on the order left flank, and a ton of stormcast on the right. Enough for a very large two rank deep liberator unit.


Bloodreavers raving in the Hellfort to Khornate death & blood metal! - They don't move the whole game as the objective was to hold the fort.


A true Khornate charge. - We decided to halt the order advanced and keep them away from the Hellfort aslong as possible. Snatching the initiative on turn 2 secured us that charge!


I fly my bloodthirster up when the main battleline is engaged. He wipes a 5 man liberator squad, and with his incarnate Rage bloodily explodes a few more stormcast within 8".


Just a quick army shot, of a second 100 wound match I played. My opponent brought Archaon, Skarbrand, Blob .... needless to say I was totally out-summoned. Now considering a wizard of sorts just to keep units rolling in. Not very Khorny but...

Thanks for looking.

Fantastic work! That game looks excellent, and your paintwork is brilliant.

Another blog that makes starting AoS a constant temptation! You and Bottle keep this up and I'll have no choice but to start Sigmaring it up!

Hi Paradigm,

Thank you so much. I love your thread, and especially the realism you go for on some of your work, so coming from you that's awesome!

And as AoS goes, whilst the system is interesting, the options for lore and paint work is still there!

Thanks again!

Thanks EDC!

I toyed with the skin tone for ages before I settled on something a little different from the normal red. I also didn't want the Armour to get lost to much with the skin, hence the blue.

Still more to go on the bloodthirster!

Thanks again.

Hi all,

I managed to get my first game in under the SCGT comp rules. Must say I much prefer them. Certainly in regards to pool point count, summoning rules and general army setup.

Here's what I captured so you can see how the battle panned out:












HOLD THE LINE - I love how the liberators look in this format. My opponent did really well to line them up to deny overlap.








Ah yes the Retributor lightning stirke!







At the end of turn 5 I only had my Bloodthirster left on 12 wounds.

Lessons learnt:

We went on the ruling that my bloodsecrators do not stack. So I may replace one for something else, however they were not targeted in priority so having two in other games is still not a bad idea in-case they get sniped.

I was anxious to get my 20 Bloodletters in asap, this was possibly a mistake as 10 came in turn 1 and a following 10 turn 2. Meaning they still had a lot of the board to cover in re to movement when I could have utilised them better when needed.

I left my Daemon Prince exposed (Subbed in for a Khorgarath) it died to the Grpyhhound presenting all kinds of units to shoot me. (Btw that Judicator Prime, wow that's a lot of shooting to die to)

A unit of 40 Bloodreavers, was nice, but just to many to maximize my attacks. I will take them as two units of 20 instead for the purpose of maximization and utility.

Hellcannon was and IS all kinds of awesome. It took 10 wounds of the stardrake which is lucky from its wound rolls, but still that was my VIP.

Other thoughts, I might try to maximise more skullreaper units from spare wounds, like dropping the 10 blood warriors. Skull reapers are all kinds of awesome.

Many thanks,

Awesome stuff. Out if curiosity why did you decide the bloodsecrators don't stack when the rules say that all modifiers are cumulative? I run three specifically to stack them.

It was something to do with the SCGT comp rules I think, although I cant find them on the rules sheet!

An extremely common ruling is that abilities with the same name do not stack - Mystic Shield is culprit #1. Personally I'd say 'Secrator +1A doesn't stack either.

BUT that's an awesome photo recap, great stuff! Kind of stunned all your stuff evaporated so quickly, but that's what 8-9 rounds of combat will do for you I guess

Post by: Luvvo


Yeah SCGT states that cumulative or unique named abilities do NOT stack.

This is where I will be looking to take Wrathmongers to generate an additional attack though as a replacement. Their passive ability when they die is amazing if I can get them 2" within a enemy Hero/unit.

Dear enemy Hero please now attack yourself, as one of my wrathmongers is dead. Excellent berserk elite! -yes that could be applicable to his stardrake as an example.

Hi all,

Just in case anyone was interested I thought I would list my current SCGT Khorne Bloodbound army:

I'm 4/5 wins at the moment, Vs Bretonnia, Tomb Kings, Goblins/Orks, Empire. The one loss was Stormcast.

2 Bloodthirster's of Insensate Rage 24
Daemon Prince 7
Mighty Lord of Khorne 5
2 Bloodsecrator's 12
Blood-stoker 3
3x5 Skullreapers 24
1x Wrathmonger 8
2x20 Bloodreavers 12
2x10 Bloodletters 5 (Summoning Pool) -100 Pool Points

How is everyone else's lists shaping up?

Thanks,

I used to run with a Hellcannon. After some swapping due to it being a "legacy scroll" I had 18 pool points to play with. That was an easy decision for another Thirster, then some tweaking elsewhere.

Within SCGT, the portal of skulls don't stack, however on a 4x2 I pretty much have an entire army not taking battle-shock and benefiting from the +1 melee attack. Almost a 36" wide bubble. Anything out of that is normally a single character or I can flip Inspiring presence on them.

Here's the next installment from my last match Vs Tomb Kings:

It was my first time playing TK under AoS/SCGT. Last time was back in 8th.


My battleline. Off to my right is the bloodreavers and second Thirster.


My battleline


Aerial View.


The chariots advance.


Settra and Lord Vharak Khovar face off. Being in full cover I have a 2+ AS. Unfortunately no reality splitting Axe came off.


Chariots get melted!

Unfortunately that's all I took. It was a fun battle, relatively convincing for myself. It was my opponents first game under SCGT.

Skullreaper's and Wrathmonger's are the mainstay of my army. Can't argue for having them more!!! A bloodstoker re-rolls though's wound rolls of one so you can almost guarantee daemon-forged blades causing additional mortal wounds on 6's and not taking damage back on the 1's.

If you can get the Reapers in against a squishe unit first you can rack up the kill count and then re-roll hits and wounds. Which is amazing, as you are 3+ to hit 3+ to wound, Re-rolling. PLus re-rolling 1's on the charge. Gorelord them and thats a 3D6 charge as well.

My Wrathmonger's in that game, made Settra and the Spyhnx hit themselves. So I can't argue against that!

I did a recent conversion on my Bloodwarrior's to Wrathmonger's which I can share, as I wanted to save some money with the amount of spare bits I have.


I have loads of info but at work so rushing at the moment!

Here's the converted Bloodwarrior's to Wrathmonger's.

Very simple, but great for me as otherwise these models would sit at home on the shelf. Also saves me £35 on a new box! If only Bitz sites had the spares I could have made another 15 Skullreaper's/Wrathmonger's.

Hi all,

I've been working on my Bretonnian list. After a few test games they felt really lack luster, and/or to expensive for their capabilities.

As such I think I may have found something that is fluffy, but could still work on the tabletop. Let me know what you think.

Louencouer
Fey Enchantress
Paladin Standard Bearer
Damsel of the Lady
40 Knights of the Realm

100 Pool points under SCGT.

Using everything in conjunction at a *maximum potential can create a lovely charging deathstar.

Under this scenario, assuming all are in range to attack and have charged. Inclusive of these hero abilities/spells:

FE: If that unit is Nobility, you can add 2 to all these hit rolls instead.
FE: Mystic Shield
Aura of the Lady: In your hero phase, select the Damsel or a Free People model within 6"" of her; that model heals one wound. Supreme Aura of the Lady: In your hero phase, select the Fay Enchantress or a Free People model within 6"" of her; that model heals D3 wounds."
LL: Do not take battleshock
DoTL: If successfully cast on a 5, within 16" whenever , when that unit suffers a wound or mortal wound. Add 1 to that roll if the unit is Nobility. On a 6 or more, that wound is ignored.

So that's...

40 Knights (1 Gallant) 81 attacks @ 2 Damage, no rend, 2+/3+ to hit and wound. Saves of 2+/5+
40 Chargers 80 attacks @ 1 Damage, no rend, 2+/4+ to hit and wound.

Failed Attacks Successful Attacks Succesful Wounds Enemy Save Rolls (*4+) Potential Damage Output
14 68 45 23 45
13 67 33 17 17
Sub-Totals:27 134 78 39 62

I would then retreat in subsequent rounds with a 10" retreat move, and re-charge to maintain the bonus'. Scenario dependent. But if I win priority it might be more beneficial for me to do so.

Thanks,

Afternoon all.

Played another match yesterday, Vs Skaven this time. It was composed of, what I can only describe as an Elitist - Shooty army bar, a Verminlord and Hellpit. I'll see if you can call out the units, there were a lot of interesting conversions in his list!

I'll let the pictures tell the story though! Enjoy.


Deployment after my initial move and run.


Angle 2.


Angle 3


Surprisingly he actually moved forward. Was not expecting that.


Angle 2. I was trying to rush for the cover to get what saves I could against the shooting.


Won priority on Turn 2, but still lost a lot to his first shooting round. Ouch Bloodthirster's!


Khorne does, what Khorne does best. My Insensate Ragethirster swings first, and causes 3 mortal wounds on enemy units in an 8" bubble after wounding on x3 6's. Shame that doesn't stack!

He was unaware of the Wrathmonger's abilities, so piled in with the Verminlord who then hit and killed himself, after taking the mortal wounds from the Ragethirster.


More shooting thins me out...


Closing the gap.


Skaven last stand.


I pulled off the win. but I was super anxious about all those shooting attacks.

Taking me to 6/7 wins now. I'm hoping to get a rematch with the Stormcast player as my list has change fairly significantly and i think i can take it.

Thanks for taking a look.

Luvvo.

That Skaven army: HOLY. FAKK.

(As in the modeling is stupendous; actual composition a bit high on the douche, and as you say, not very interested in engaging in the game. Filthy rats )

Doublethirster continues to be pretty nifty (and dead killy)

It was a very interesting Skaven army indeed. Most if not all models were individual in some way, and very nice conversions!

Last time I played them was back in 8th so was a bit of a wake up call for me. Sooooo much shooting, and only the one Mystic Shield

I believe that was supposed to be a hell-bit abomination. In fact it definitely was, as it had the 5+ rule it comes back to live!

Thanks Chaps.

I'm not certain on the horses/ All I know is that when I have tried to get through a regiment of 9+ when in the old school lance formation I almost lost hope when going over each individual horse.

And I have to admit the celestial steed was hella easy and for an ok/decent effect. When it comes to 40 of them I'm leaning towards keeping the same colour scheme. However i could potentially look at character mounts, the Damsels and BSB for example.

@WarbossDakka - I think I have a close up version on my Night Lords plog that's worth a look if you want a close up!

@Paradigm - I truly hope so. The last few games i've play tested against my Khornate army the Bret's have just not been able to stand up against it. This way I have taken the deathstar unit into a deathstar army escalation! Can't wait to get it ready to play with!

Hi all,

New match update for you. This time Vs Vampire Counts/Death. I'm also due to play a really nice Nurgle army tomorrow so will update you on that as well!

Enjoy!


Battle lines are drawn. I'm elected to go first. Khorne advances.


Advance!


Death's view


Death's Advance







Seems I missed a few pictures here, as it goes from a full board to half empty.

Conclusion, I had another victory wiping the whole table.

Thanks!

Hi all,

I promised a good match, and I definitely have one!

Nurgle vs Khorne


Drawn Battlelines

















































I think that takes me to 8/9 victories in SCGT AoS. I'm looking to tweak my list, possibly by replacing the Deamon Prince and the bloodletters summoning pool. Not to sure what with yet. Perhaps a Gaunt Summoner.

Thoughts?

*Will be back later to give some thoughts on where I went wrong in this match up.

Hi all,

Quite a big update today.

I had a rematch with the Nurgle army. Both of us with a few tweaks to our lists, so enjoy that one.

In regards to the tweaks, I've included a Warshrine, swapped my Mighty Lord for a Jugger Lord, and a Skullgrinder. After the battle I've further tweaked again. Also need to run some mathhammer on my Wrathmongers vs Skullreapers.

One thing I did notice though, was that my opponent had missread the rule for Plague Bearers being at -2 to hit in combat as opposed to shooting. This is a majoorr deal!! As even my skullreapers are now hitting on 6's!

Round 2 FIGHT!:


















At one point my Wrathmongers caused 19 wounds. He saved 18!!!!







And now for the conversions and tweaks to my list:


Gaunt Summoner/Tzeentch Sorc Lord - With Khorne hound to keep him in check!








Still a lot of work to go on this badboy.


Thanks for stopping by!

cant wait to see where the warshrine goes.
does it do well for you?

looking for the results on you skullreapers vs wrathmongers.

cant believe he made 18 saves... yikes!

The warshrine is excellent.

A 6+ ward on all mortal units within a 9" range really makes a difference. Especially as most of my army is mortal!

That and the Favour of Khorne is very nice. On a 3+ the ability to re-roll ALL failed hits packs a punch!

My Skullreapers vs Wrathmongers is coming down to running either a:

A) 10 man unit of Skullreapers with a separate 5 man, and seperate 5 man Wrathmonger. OR

B) 10 man unit of Skullreapers, with a 10 man Wrathmongers.

I was running them all as separate 5 mans so that I could benefit from their kill tally much faster and get those re-rolls on wounds. but having them in larger groups allows me to maximise my Hero abilities/buffs so the kill tally is outweighed by this.

Including a Bloodsecrator, Jugger Lord, Stoker, and Warshrine on the two 10man variants:

Skullreaper's have a damage output of 22 unsaved wounds on models with a 4+ save. (This is using Deamon Weapons)

Wrathmongers have a damage output of 25 unsaved wounds on models with a 4+ save.

Hi all.

New match up for you.

Khorne Bloodbound Vs Death



















I ended up losing the game. That's two losses in a row from a previous 9 win streak. Perhaps I need to stop mucking around with my tweaks and go back to my core list. The warshrine will stay, as hit ability to re-roll all failed hits is a big deal early on. Inclusive of the 6+ ward on mortal units.

My main mistakes here, were over-exposing my Bloodthirsters when it was not necessary for me to do so. That and not using my bloodreavers to soak up the first Blood Knights charge bonus. My thirster made all 5 attacks and wounds on the Zombie Dragon (Mortarch) but he saved all of them. That could have been a game changer.

Dat Mourngoul though. Not 100% on how to take that out yet.

Thanks,

Hi all quick update:

Working away on my Bretonnian army for an escalation campaign, pre the summer campaign and the Generals Handbook. Although with all the leaks online, I've allready built out my 2.5k list for AoS, and can't wait to play it in store.

Here's a little glimpse into on of the games and the Paladins I'm working on.





Also here's my current list, I'm looking to escalate to, and have ready for the summer camp.

King "Samuel Luuvigne" 400 Leader
The Fay Enchantress "Isylte Aeleis" 160 Leader
Damsel of the Lady "Athelisa Belsant" 100 Leader
Paladin Standard Bearer "Tedric Hardouin" 160 Leader
Amber Battle Mage "Corban Mils" 100 Leader
Knight-Vexillor "Hoel Virrus" 200 Leader
24 x Knights of the Realm II "Gabryell Laive" 660 Battleline
10 x Paladin Protectors "Covean Mord" 440

2,220 Points at the moment.

How is everyone else's shaping up, would love to know!

Thanks,

I think that's your Vexillor? Conversion looks ace

List looks strong, I know there's a lot of synergy backing up that KotRstar. Feels like a ton of characters? But that's pretty fluffy for Brets, and I'm sure it fits in the comp limits.

I'm excited to roll into the campaign with my Ogres, but sadly I've only seen the beast stuff leaked for them

Hey Salvage,

Thanks for stopping by.

That man there is actually my Paladin protector prime.

Here's a new shot on the rest of the unit, 5 more to go.

My Vexillor is in front.



The list is based around a hard hitting KotRstar, absolutely right. Providing all my spells go off, and I charge that's:

48 attacks at 2+ to hit 2+ to wound no rend, but 2 damage from the Knights.
A further 48 from the chargers at 2+ to hit and 3+ to wound.
With a 2+/5+ save.

All first round of combat of course due to the charge. Mathhammer its a fairly reasonable 43 wounds after saves at 4+'s.

The paladins I will drop to deal with any big scary monsters, as my knights lack of rend struggles to knock down big wound count models.

My last 280 points is exactly enough to drop in two concussors to strengthen my Knight charge and support.

Character heavy and just on the limit at 6 >_<

Thanks again.

Hi all,

So I've kicked off my escalation campaign at my local GW as well as merging into the GW summer campaign with our escalation armies.

We started with 35 pool points, gaining 2D6 for a loss, and 1D6 for a win. This gained a D6 if we used a scenario or the summer campaign scenarios.

Here's a few snap so far:


Third game in Vs a mousillion Death army.


I over expose Leoun here, he dies to a Blood Knights savage charge. As well as the Fey enchantress getting snagged by the Mourngoul.

I lost this matchup.


This was a 2 v 2, Order vs Death. (Fyreslayer allies ftw)


I did much better with my charges here, also winning priority. Charged into the Mourghoul with Knights and Leoun. But still didn't kill him. leaving me open to a Blood Knight, and Grave Guard counter charge.


The objective was to have more models on the middle terrain piece, as it held a magic item. The winning army would then honour duel it out with its generals.


Leoun won! Check that item out!


Progress shot of the Knights, and more paladins.


This was a 2 v me match up as I'd accounted for more pool points. using the first summer campaign scenario.


I smashed through the stormvermin killing them outright, as well as lightning striking my paladins in to take out Durthu.


Enemy turn, and they line up to take out the knights.




Seems I missed a few pictures here, but I won!


This was a 1v1 but with a strategic objective. My opponent went with assassinate. At first I bunkered as expected some lightning deepstrikes. Fortunately he didn't have the pool points yet to spend on the battalion/vexillor.


So I advance! Dropping in my paladins on his Venator to snipe him. I designated attacks elsewhere and he ends up retreating out on one wound.


I make use of his slow infantry, bu the prosecutors hold me up with a flank charge. i kill them, but its done enough. My opponent tries to line up more shooting time, with the Venators star fated arrow, and the judicators into Leoun.


Unfortunatley the shooting isn't quite enough, and with D6+1 wounds back thanks to my hero setup Leoun is back to full health!

It was just a matter of cleaning up from there.

Thanks all, really enjoying the GW summer campaign so far. Hoq is everyone else doing?

Hi all!

Its been a little while since my last update.

Have atleast two battles to show you. Both using The General's handbook at 2.5k lists. With the second match using the Border War game type. Hope you enjoy, firstly though here's a few conversion or other bits of work:


Paladin's finally based up!


Pegasus Knights!


Closer look at the pegasus knight.


Questing Knights. Lady forgive me for some of the headswaps!

++ Battle Reports Incoming ++

Vs Sylvaneth












24 Glorious Knights of The Realm






















Allariellie causes 15 wounds with her Beetle alone. All of a sudden my frontline doesn't look as strong.







At this point I conceded. Allarielle, and more specifically her beetle is a beast!

Vs Death












His General on *zombie dragon dies to the paladins efforts, but reanimates on a 6 and comes back on one wound. Subsequently retreating.


But not from a 4D6, 2 highest 12" charged from the Pegasus knights!


The charge hits home into the accursed Mousillion ranks!

[imghttps://s9.postimg.io/fg41shbf3/WP_20160818_20_27_53_Rich_2.jpg[/img]




The knight try valiantly to hold Mousillion back and contest the Victory Points.


The Pegasus Knights do the same and fly an impressive 21" retreat to cover the questing knights vs the Blood Knights.


We hit store closing time at this point and so had to extrapolate the game out.

It was a close win for me with 2 Victory Points!

Quick update:

I have finally got around to my AoS Death army. More specifically a Soulblight Vampire list. There are a few things I need to iron out. Like making the list actually viable, but here is what I would like to base it off:

Mortarch Mannfred
Wight King w/ Infernal Standard
x 30 Blood Knights
Mournghoul

2540

Two concept snaps of my Blood Knights so far, whilst things are on order:





Would love to hear your thoughts!?

For paint scheme I think a classic red, but worked up to a tamia red clear, so lacquered red armour will work well.

With dark nightmare steeds, and maybe a few OSL effects on eyes and hooves.

Thanks,

Fantastic interpretation of a Bretonnia army. Was always my favourite in fantasy but due to neglect by GW on the model range and an intense dislike to metal and finecast models, I never got past an initial knight errant unit.
May steal this kind of idea for a future AoS army

Solid kitbash, great improvement on the (rather pitiful) standard yeomen for sure. Funnily enough I just saw a Kislev army yesterday (for KOW) that used chaos ponies to make better good-ish human mounted bowmen ...

Hi all,

I have a new battle report for you!

Khorne Bloodbound Vs Death Mousillion

This was a 3000 point match, following the Gift from The Heavens pitched battle types.
Spoiler:


Deaths deployment


Khornes deployment






Magewrath Throne - With a fat Wight King!


The massed Bloodbound ranks advance.






The Bloodbound severely underestimate the mobility of a Death army. That 4" free move in the Hero phase closed the gap much quicker than expected!


Gaps start to appear in the Bloodbound battleline!


The Black Knights and Mournghoul chew away at the Bloodreaves frontline.


The Blood Knights get a long charge into the Bloodthirster, then pilling into the Skull crushers, negating a savage counter charge.


Death win priority turn two and the skeletons join the combat. The white line on the empty base is Mannfred! The Template is the Meteor landing.


The Bloodbound right flank is fully engaged. Belakor lurks on the extreme right. using his Dark Master ability on the Mournghoul. Unfortunately the Mournghoul was undaunted a rolled 4+ every time.


Mannfred joins the fray


& then leaves the fray Really solid rolling from the warshrine. Those clubbed fists are -2 rend! Wrathmongers, and Khorne lord contribute as well!


The vampire on Zombie Dragon is free from combat on the right flank!


& so sneaks in behind the Bloodbound meteor to contest the Victory points. Deaths landed on their extreme right, and near unreachable for the Bloodbound.


Last shot I took of the game. The Wrathmongers and Warshrine kill the vampire Lord on zombie dragon, but the Ring of immortality sees him come back within 12" somewhere.

Before I finish my turn 3 we call it there due to store closing.

5 VPs - 5 VPs

It was too close to call as anything could have happened from there so we drew.

*One scenario I would like help on however:

The Mournghoul was on one wound remaining. In his combat he killed a Skullreaper, and so should immediately heal D3 wounds.

However the Skullreaper caused 2 mortal wounds back to the Mournghoul in his death throws. Which is delivered when killed.

Effectively these actions are carried out at the same time. So the question was, does the Mournghoul die, or does it survive due to the heal?

We 4+ it in the end, as we could not decide.

Many thanks,

Afternoon all...

I really want to get a kick start into this army, but my basing and painting concepts are holding me back.

Does anyone have any nice gritty vampire schemes that would work for a Non-air brush user?

I've also tweaked the list for a pure Soulblight one as well:

Vampire on Vampire Dragon
Coven Throne
Vamp Lord x2
30 Blood Knights

2540

The guys at Awaken Realms seem to do a really nice job, but I'm certain its air brushed.

Quick update: Working on a 1500 slayer themed list for my Disspossed. Using a collection of models from Scibor Miniatures, and Avatars of War.

Thanks guys.

I was thinking of doing some OSL on the runes, and doing more of a snow frozen base as it will contrast really well with the light cyan colour of Kharak Draka's main colour.

The Scibor miniatures have a ton of character. Can't wait to get stuck into them. They are definitely slightly larger than the GW dwarfs, but as hero characters I think that should be ok.

I played a 1v1 Gift from The Heavens with my Freeguild list. I was taking on a Daughters of Khaine list.

My List: 1680 Points

Empire General
Grey Battle Mage -Mistifying Miasma
Master Engineer
Gryph Hound
x20 Greatswords
2 x10 Sword Guard
x20 Handgunners
x2 Great Cannons
Celestial Hurricanum



My deployment.




Aelve Deployment


Aelves advance.

I targeted the cauldron of blood as soon as I could. It buffs the witches something chronic. Unfortunately I did not roll high on my D6 dmg from the great cannons so it took two turns. A few snipes from Long Rifles and it went down.



The witches win priority turn 3 and charge on in. I don't mind this to be honest, as my Handgunners have the Stand and Shoot reaction. 19 shots hitting on 2's and wounding on 2's is simply crazy with a -1. That's insta dead witches. I target the Executioners however as they are more of a threat.

The ensuing combat sees me lose, 5 Swordsmen from my left most unit, 1 from the right, and 1 Greatsword. By the end of my turn 2 I completely wipe all of the aelves, and due to battleshock they take heavy losses. The executioners go down to three models atleast.

I also managed to get off the Mystifying Miasma onto the executioners negating their double damage mortal wounds on 6's to hit. This turns out to be mega otherwise I would have lost 16 greatswords due to his rolls. Instead I retain a save of 2+. 4+ basic, +1 for mystic shield, and +1 for being behind the wall.

Lessons Learnt:

Its incredibly hard to win scenarios that rely on VP to win the games. You have to really consider your deployment and placement with what is a very static army. The general premise is to bunker up nice and tight and let your Great Cannons snipe scary things, or solo characters to stop them capping Objectives. In larger games at 2k, you could take four great cannons which is awesome.

Combat armies are going to have to come to you. I've yet to play verses a shooting list, like Savage orcs but even they have a relatively short range.

Many thanks,

Morning all,

I won the campaign battle! Turns out it was not quite the Apocalypse scale we expected. With only a total of 12K on the table. It was a close run thing to the end though. 7 VPs to Khorne & 6 VPs to Mousillion. 5 VPs to Order, and possibly 3 VPs for Destruction.

The last contested tile on turn 4 came down to a shared wound amount of 53 between us. -What are the odds!

After the snaps, I've also posted what I'm working on next. In other news my Avatars of War Slayers arrived today! Yay!

Here's the pictures though:








I used Sayl to fly my bloodletters up, completing a subsequent charge into the flanking move from the ork boys and brutes. I have to split some of my attacks, but I take 10 Brutes down to 3. Sniping the banner with the Hellcannon on 6 mortal wounds as well. The boys and the remaining brutes run due to battle shock. Mortal wounds on 5+ to hit is nasty. I think you can make that 4+ to wound as well when combined with the "Lord of War" trait!




Those pesky Grot netters are nutz. My mighty Skullcrushers as a consequence are now hitting on 6's! I'd also charged my wrathmongers into the Gobbos' to give them an extra 30+ attacks back :(


Work on my new Khorne 2k GT list starts!


Rebasing my bloodreavers on 25mms to use as Khorne Marauders. I figure for the same points cost for 10, you lose the rend an Totem buff. But gain a 5+ save, and two ranks fighting instead of the one due to 32mms. With effectively the same benefits.


A quick conversion/bits swap for my sorcerer on mount.



Also I love the army painter spray range... but this is the third can this has happened to me now. Plus its half full! :(

Many thanks,

Hi all,

I've been working on a ton of new things at the moment. (I should really dedicate my time to getting one army focused on!)


Scale picture from GW Duradin warriors and AoW Seekers.


My alternate model for Ungrim. A lot bigger for scale, but I don't mind that.


Also doing some minor conversion work on my Bloodreavers into Marauders!


First concept for my Kraka Drak slayers




Really love the new Tzeentch blue paint range.

Would love feedback on the slayer. Really want the runes to pop more on the base, but not sure what colour to use.

Many thanks,

60 Bloodletters... that took a lot longer than I expected to build. Soooo many mould lines, and on almost every sub-part. #NeverAgain

Been a while.

Following an AoS skirmish campaign I started my Dispossessed army in earnest.



Going for a much darker dwarven armour, using a white marble for the basing to make them pop!

Hi all,

New project incoming!!

I'm starting a 2k GT list for the heat 3 tournament in June of next year!

To get your head around it think Thunder Warriors but in the Age of Sigmar. As such I've written a little context to get myself hyped!

~~++ The Son's of Breton ++~~

The Son's of Breton can be traced (for those that know how to do such things, after all the history of ages and worlds is long lost) back to a time after the elder ages of Dwarf and Elf. A race of man forged by Sigmar's own hand in his mortal form. Yet their story does not truly start there. For if that was so, you would only be eating the lie that ruled the Son's of Breton through the Ages.

Thier truth starts with Lileath, the Maiden. Lileath was the High Elf goddess of dreams, magic energy, innocence, and fortune. She was the daughter of Isha and Kurnous, and thus was the older sister to the entire Elf race.

In the death throws of the Old World Lileath, was also known as another by the Son's of Breton. She was known as The Lady.

Lileath strove to create a new world, a rebirthed Old World. Born among the Age of Myth. She spent her efforts and power strengthening her daughter by Araloth, to open a portal to a world innocent of Chaos' touch. With the last of her strength, she imbued Araloth with deific energies and sent him through the portal, there to join their child and guardian spirits, fashioned from the souls of Bretonnia's greatest knights.

However the vampire lord Mannfred was freed from his prison by Be'lakor in exchange for exposing Lileath's true form. For an elven Goddess is far to tempting for a prince such as Be'lakor to turn from. Be'lakor tracked her down,and discovering her plan, destroys the re-birthed Old World, resulting in the Age of Sigmar.

Lileath in turn is discovered by Jerrod, Last Duke of Quenelles. Whilst defending her from Be'lakor he decides to abandon Lileath with her lies, and die attempting to return home to Gilles le Breton & Abhorash with the Red Duke in tow; rather than participate in the final battle at Middenhiem.

Lileath is shortly sacrificed by Teclis at her request, and so ends her hold on Bretonnia. it is most likely she has been captured by Slaneesh! This would more than explain his absence, whilst he toys with a Goddess of such power.

Unbeknownst to Lileath, Sigmar did not sit idle. His sons, and warriors he fought shoulder to shoulder with to defend the Old World would have their ancestry left to despair or consumed by Chaos. Risen to the Godly Pantheon Sigmar plucked the guardian spirits from the ether and smote them into the first true Stormhost. The Son's of Breton....

The Son's unlike most of Sigmar's Stormhost's were given a mighty gift. The power of memories. This is bother their curse and blessing. For each time a Son is reforged from battle another precious memory is lost to them. In turn the fight all the harder for a God that they truly believe in, whilst to protect thier memories of ages forgotten.

~~++ The Son's of Breton Army List ++~~



~~++ The Son's of Breton Concept ++~~

This was my first concept, but I'm actually going to stick with individual heraldry on each model!



Humble Beginnings

Hi all,

Quick update as I'm working on a concept for the main colour scheme. Work In Progress at the moment.

Liberator with *Grandhammer:





The main thing I was struggling with is what to paint the bracken to create a good contrast. Ideally I wanted a similar theme to the guys who work on The Dark Age of Sigmar so nice and swampy/gritty.

Water effects, moss, and reeds yet to come!

Hi all,

A brief battle report from last nights *Errantry War*

I've been testing out the new tweaks to my list following an absolute pounding playing a 3x30 Tzangorr list!

This one went much better for me, and the new mobility/alpha is an absolute godsend!

We rolled the mission with two objectives, of which only Hero's and Behemoths can capture. Playing on a 4x4 does restrict things, but I'm looking to get a 6x4 soon!


Deployment, plus first turn.

I deployed most of my army behind a 10 man Protector shield. Unfortunately the terrain I was standing in was mystical and everyone passed the befuddlement apart from my front rank. Meaning my movement was very limited. I then failed my Relictor Pray so couldn't move them that way either.

In the end it was an advantage to me, as it gave my opponent the misdirection to advance towards me, and my Longstrikes!



Here you can see me winning priority for turn two, and maximizing the use of my Hammerstrike Battalion. My Decimators make a 12" charge that sees them into the bulk of the skele spear unit and the archers in the back-line. My Retributors smash into the chariots flank. My Relictor prays go off, and whilst my Protectors fail their befuddled roll I move them up with the pray instead.



Seems I missed a snap from the ensuing combat from here. As you can see it advanced quite a bit. My Decimators make short work of the Skeletons but start to take wounds, especially from the stalkers that come up on turn 3. A second stalker unit charges my liberators on my right flank.

My Retributors make a charge into the Sphinx, and my Paladins now not befuddled make a charge into the second chariot unit.

My Longstrikes come into play and nuke a casket of souls, trimming wounds of chariots and Sphinx as they go. ~These guys are straight savages!

Afraid that's all I took from there, but I learnt a hell of a lot. Next time I'm asking my opponents to take GT orientated and bent lists so that I practice against tough armies.

#BretonniaForever!

The Reforged Brets are looking good, and I like the concept quite a bit. I also appreciate that you keep blogging these despite the lack of replies - I've got next to no interest in AOS these days, but I do enjoy your modeling and desire to do cool things and tell us about it

Thanks Salvage,

I've been quite inconsistent with which army to stick with, but I see the Son's of Breton leading into my future for sometime. Hopefully that generates some consistency for the viewers, and something to comment on!

I couldn't stop myself last night, and whilst the model is a WIP I went ahead and did a test base.

Heavy inspiration from James Cameron's Avatar. I wanted to improve upon the typical dark swampland and add a little magical hit.

Its still drying when I took the picture but heres my first pass:

Hi boys.

Calling him pretty much done.

Wondering about adding some green OSL to pop from his greatblade?

Had a nightmare with the water effects. Found out the resin base was a little to thin so it leaked. Will have to tape it off and do it again.

Hi all,

Next battle report for you!

I replayed my first opponent, the Tzaangor army I mentioned previously. This time the game match was Knife to the Heart instead of Starstrike.

I got my ass kicked from like 28 VP - 0 last time. With a few lessons learnt and tweaks things went differently:


My deployment. 9" away from enemy deployment zone. 18" gap. That means I'm safe surely!


Enemy deployment. Yes that's 90 Tzaangor!


Tzaangor get first turn and advance across the line. Apart from the third unit in the rear.


Whats this? Oh that's a 4 on their advance and move roll. Whilst still needing a 9/10 to make it in for a charge. Two destiny dice later and both units are in my face turn 1.


The paladin protectors take a solid beating. Losing all but two, and subsequently running. My flanking liberators also take losses. That hurt!


The tide starts to turn with the Hammerstrike Battalion coming down. My Retributors hit hard and fast, whilst my Decimators are caught before they can swing and lose a few. My Longstrikes and prosecutors take out the supporting Gaunt Summoner and shaman. That reduces the Gors ability to wound now on 4+ from 3's.


The thinning out of the horde continues.


Starkly reminded of the third unit yet to come!


My opponent wins the second priority turn and advances his third unit. There's not enough destiny dice to make their charge this time around though! They are left out in the open.

At this stage I mop up the remaining Gors, and we move into turn three. I looked to achieve a Major Victory, but even with the Lightning Storm pray going off I cant get close enough to contest his objective.

As such I go for the Minor Victory (Kill points). In the end there was a solid difference of 300 points in my favour which would easily turn to 700 after taking out the handful of Gors left in the third unit.

We ended the game there as a Minor to me!
