I'm getting ready to start the entire dreadhold.

GW points don't bring balance. They exist purely for structure. You can get more balance from no points than you do from GW points. You however can get no structure in your game without points.

I love your characterful bases, coldgaming! They really make your forces stand out!

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

That made me chuckle, your next project is getting ready to do the dreadhold. Getting ready for that is a project in its own right.

Just working on my Battle For Skull Pass dwarves some more! Not the nicest miniatures ever, but they are shaping up quite nicely still. Can't wait to get some of the new Duardin/Slayers to add to these :-)



Need to finish the metal work on these, the silver, gold and bronze, which will be done NMM style.

Also need to finish off the bases, and then these guys will be done :-)

Bottle, I absolutely love those models. Skull pass with a box of Ironbreakers and a runesmith (new) are core of my dwarves for AoS...gonna add belegar later, but I love that paint scheme.

That might be the best paint job I've ever seen on the BFSP kit. I generally have a low opinion of that kit, but you have salvaged it and more, sir. Well done, Bottle.

Wow, thanks guys!

Still not finished yet, need to do all the metals and the bases.

It's one of the things I love about AoS. I bought BFSP almost 10 years ago (I think) and it's been sitting unpainted as I chose Empire as my army for WHFB - now with AoS both sides are perfect sizes in their own right, giving me two extra armies!

I love seeing all the Stormcast models. I've just ordered some more and can see quite a large army in my future. Great dwarfs and Disco, I wasn't even painting that cleanly at age 12! Or arguably even now.

Slowly finishing off the Prosecutors from the starter. Got a bunch of Nurgle on my to-do list and thinking about making a ghoul war band at some point seeing as I have a bunch of them laying around. Some of the sub-factions have incredible synergy. The ghoul band and the spider band stand out to me.

Thanks for the comments

Finished my Blightkings and decided to stick to the same base look as my Skaven just so they have a bit uniformity if the 2 armies are fielded together.

Very nice. Every time I see a nurgle army I want to do one myself, they have so many nice models.

Agreed, really nice work! Love those dwarfs Bottle, and your basing is really unique, coldgaming. Is that all just airbrushing effects, no added texture? A neat idea

Nurgle's rot is a great idea. I've been trying to get that look with resin and failing so thank you!!!

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.

That's even better! Could you take a closer picture, and possibly describe how you're doing it?

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.

Thanks very much . Love the green and blue especially! If you want to tweak the lava there are a lot of tutorials for it out there, but your others are quite unique and the step-by-step description is really helpful.
