With the start of a new project comes the fun rifling through multiple bits boxes, going back up into the loft, finding an army case you forgot you had, using dettol to strip back some old miniatures you want back in there, basing ideas you have to draw a line on; plus all the other fabulous things that jump into you head and theme.

Well here is the outcome of that so far:

Please meet The Stormkeep Breton Guard. A veritable lone fortress in the heartlands of Ghur. The Stormkeep defends the Tane Realmgate; The Sons of Breton Stormhost call this fortress their home, just they very rarely inhabit it for long due to the myriad of problems in Ghur they are called upon to solve.

When the Stormhost is deployed on missions, a small contingent is left at the Stormkeep overseen by the Lord-Castellant himself. Whilst in order to defend its great walls, and patrol its streets the Breton Guard are called to duty.

The Stormkeep itself has been under siege lately by a huge Bonesplittaz tribe, and the Stormhost are to intangled in present conflicts to return and relieve the siege.

It has been a long and grueling siege, one that no one thought the Boneslittaz tribe would stay for. Stay they have however, and the time to sally forth has come. The defenders having been whittled down one by one, are taking the fight to the enemy. In the hopes they can delay the inevitable and get message to the Stormhost to return in time.

Without further adieu, here is my initial concept and what I have built so far:

Hope you guys like it and want to follow along on this journey. Again this is another army I want to take to WHW's GT in season'19. Failing any viability I will always take my Sons of Breton Stormhost.

Oh and give @luvvo09 a little look on Instagram, as I've finally setup shop over there!

Grats on the GT, attendance, nomination, placing and all. Glad it went so well, enjoyed sharing a bit in the journey to get there. New crew looks cool, interested to hear how not-Stormcast do on the field.

Really pleased the GT went well for you! Great to see the development into what it is now. As for current projects I can't wait - that tester model already looks pretty smart. Nice stuff!

If you can't believe in yourself, believe in me! Believe in the Dakka who believes in you!

Your color choices are striking, in a good way. The purple plume provides a great splash of extra color on an already great color scheme. What is the white... stone thing? your test model is on?

I look forward to what else you do with your Breton Guard. Especially the banner bearer.

Heya @Salvage, thank you for the continued support! I swear it feels like I only maintain the Plog for you most updates!

Thanks @Warboss - Hope you enjoy the progress. I'm at WHW for the AoS doubles tournament his weekend so progress has been slow. Hoping to get stuck in soon. Aslong as my SCE 2k list tweaks following the GT don't get in the way!

Hey @Captain - Not sure if you have stopped by before. Welcome to the plog! Thanks for the colour pallet approval! I nearly went white with the feather, but wanted a nice tertiary to make them pop.

The white is actually kitchen worktop edging. It has a white marbled finished, with grey streaks, but its very hard to show up on the pictures.

It's kind of like this:

Thanks again for stopping by!
