Lovely job there, Bottle! I like the transition from dark to light on the mohawks. Gives it a very fiery look! The skinhead guy looks a bit psycho! Ideal slayer material!

Wow, thanks for the overload of positive comments guys! :-)

A quick update for you all:



I finished rebasing another 10 of my Empire Swordsmen from my old Warhammer Altdorf army so they could join their brothers and be reborn in the Desperados.

This marks a milestone for me because these are the last of my Empire I still had on square bases. I stuck them all together for a photo and dragged in Siegfried himself as well as Wolmar Held:



They look badass (even if I say so myself). I love this about Age of Sigmar. This was a tiny tiny regiment in Warhammer, and it's now a giant rabble of nefarious types from all over Azyrheim haha. The paint jobs do look a little dated now, and I can't wait to show with you some of the new Empire models I am working on from white primer instead of black.

Whooo! I am always so happy when I get on (my 4th time now, and 3rd for this blog!).

I always take a screenshot to commemorate:



Thanks guys for notifying me of this. I wonder if I'll ever get into White Dwarf or Visions? Hopefully next time! :-)

Thanks man, the best part of AoS for me has been to collect and paint exactly what I want and not a figure more. Eventually all the Desperados will go their separate ways and be armies of their own but for the moment they are battling together. I hope to actually post some battlereps in the future like I did with my Necromunda Blog.

A quick post to say:

GROUP PHOTO :-)



I bought an A2 piece of paper so I could snap some cool group shots... Well that was the plan. Sadly it wasn't as easy as just using a bigger piece of paper, and the iPhone struggled to take a nice picture. Still, it's great to be able to post all my finished miniatures for Age of Sigmar in a single photo. I could almost convince myself this is a finished army...

...but really it's more like 5 unfinished armies lumped together :-P

I'm going to start fleshing out each of the different factions into its own force and then onto making a table and maybe even getting some battlereports.

Thanks for dropping in as always!

More to come...

Will you be playing Empire as their legacy rules, or the Freeguilds for GA:Order?

It's certainly an interesting question for me! I will definitely be buying the book (cannot wait, I have the Death one already and it was worth every penny).

But - I've now got 3 OOP units in my army... Alarielle, the Handmaiden and the Empire Cannon. I will likely use old warscrolls for the two high elves, for the cannon I'll see what the Dwarf one like in the Ironweld Arsenal and decide if I should play them both with that Warscroll.

For all the other units I'm going to use the warscrolls from new book. Love the name "Freeguild" and can't wait to start referring to my army as that. :-)

Your models just ooze with that Old World charm that a lot of the newer sculpts lack; even your take on the new Berserkers is great! I love your style, and you do great, characterful paintjobs on every model. Keep it up!

Hey everyone, thanks for your kind words as always! Really helps me keep motivated and working on my armies for Age of Sigmar. Speaking of which I have just finished off another unit!

Hexwraiths





Another unit to add to the necromancer Cornacaprious' disposal. The paint jobs are perhaps a bit quick and rough - maybe not quite up to the standard of my Fyreslayers but I am happy with them all so them. Actually, I am quite relieved to have them finished. I started these guys in... October? The robes were painted pink/purple to begin with to match my skeletons' rags - didn't turn out very well making them all look like the Grim Reapers of Ribena haha, so I repainted the robes black... but did so by painting them Eshin grey and then using Nuln Oil and Agrax Earthshade to get it to black. All in all a very tedious project that was ever put onto the backburner in favour of something else!

And with this unit my Death army is getting very close to becoming its own entity. I want to do a thematic battle report about Corncaprious' betrayal of Siegfried with full pictures. Similar to my Necromunda thread...

Well, that means I need to paint up some scenery and get a battleboard put together doesn't it... hmm....

More to come...

Cheers man. The skeleton of the horses was largely done by just painting Gryphonne Sepia (the old sepia wash) onto white undercoat, after that a bit of Agrax Earthshade is dabbed into the very deep recesses and Rhinox Hide is added to any parts the wash can't reach (like deep in the eye sockets). After that I did a few quick highlights in Screaming Skull and Pallid Wytch Flesh.

The metals were done with Skrag Brown followed by a wash of Agrax Earthshade and strippled Ironbreaker - Typhus Corrosion added sparingly and a drybrush of Ryza Rust in places, followed by verdigris created by Nihilahk(sp?) Oxide and then mixing it with Pallid Wytch Flesh for the lighter spots.

Black robes where done with Eshin Grey covered in a few coats of Nuln Oil and Agrax Earthshade with some quick drybrushing of Pallid Wytch Flesh and Karak Stone to create soft highlights.

The ethereal flames where done with Nihilahk Oxide over white undercoat with Biel-tan green drabbed into the shadows, highlighted with Pallid Wytch Flesh and then random placement of Waywatchers Green glaze.

That should cover everything :-)
