Those look fantastic Meowstalker! Such clean bright colours. What are you adding next?

Matt, that table looks very atmospheric!

Bye bye Dakkadakka, happy hobbying! I really enjoyed my time on here. Opinions were always my own :-)

Got the foot troops of the Bleak Horde done (36 of them!), along with another unit of Retributors;



Also got a seriously cool game of The Ritual yesterday that came right down to the wire - a great showing of what Age of Sigmar is capable of: https://ttgamingdiary.wordpress.com/2015/11/20/battle-report-the-ritual/

Matt your painting table is like a production line at the moment, nice work buddy.

Like the metallic blue too, I've found that tricky in the past.

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.

Just finished 20 Bloodreaver of Iron Horde(?), featuring black steel and scarlet groves/gauntlets/wrist guards.

Anyone have idea, why every cannon fodder made by GW take so much work to paint!!!

Anyway, I pick Iron Horde 'cos they background sound cool, much like Celestial Vindicator.

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?

@Matt, the keep looks fantastic, especially the red glow of the interior. How did you accomplish that?

And Meowstalker, superb work as always. Your colours are so smoothly highlighted.

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...

Love those Drones I need to get some of those boxes for myself.

Heres a bunch of things I have been working on for AoS that I post on the modeling forums but I will update this thread too just with some AoS sugar.

I have been rebasing my O&G and also adding some stuff to my army.

I added a count as Doomdiver because I do not like the current stock model, so I used a FW model instead.









Then Im going to do a 2nd arachnarok and I will use a model that I sculpted a few years ago for Otherworld minis.
Size comparison pics.

All metal goodness!

Then I finished up a Orc Bully to keep the Doomdiver working faster













And I just did a small tutorial on How to sculpt that Whip

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.

Playing around with my Khorne and Nurgle forces in my dusty apartment. I still need to go around the bases with black and clean them up. So much hobby stuff to do. Ordered Bloab Rotspawned. Looking forward to putting that together. Great pics above, love seeing full armies on rounds.

I've been working on the Khorne Bloodbound in the starter box. So far, I've finished the Bloodreavers, Blood Warriors, Bloodsecrator and Bloodstoker.









Khorgorath is up next!



I like this thread. So many great-looking models! It's been an inspiration.

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!

How interested are you in being able to paint? I ask, as I have _no_ talent for art. None. Zero. However, there are a few tricks and tips (and they don't take long!) that can give results that are at least decent, and I am sure everyone here would be happy to share.

Seriously, a trained chimp could paint as well as I do!
