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.



If I did it again, I'd definitely do the whole cork board thing I've seen in others' lava armies. I'm not sure what to get for basing materials though. Unfortunately I live in an area where I cannot physically access a hobby shop of any kind, so I have to order a bit blind on the internet. "Cork board" and "polystyrene" seem like common names thrown around for basing/terrain building, so I'm thinking of getting into that.

Did you put them on 32 mm bases?


Hey Sarouan, didn't see your question :-)

Just 25mms, Burlokkson is on a 32 though and it makes him look super badass. I'll post pictures once he's got a bit more paint on him.

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

Thanks, Disco, about 100 leagues beneath your painting skill! I call it the Tampa Bay Lightning colour scheme, as I pretty much copied their colours.

Gee thanks,appreciate the words dude but I do just what Duncan has taught me to do thru those fanatastic How To Paint videos he does.AoS has got me wanting to paint each figure as best I can now and has me wanting to repaint all my legacy armies so they too can look as good(it'll never happen tho with all the new stuff I want).

Those are great vids indeed. I didn't paint a whole lot when I was into the hobby as a teen. AoS got me back in so the last 6 months have been me re-learning everything. I've only begun exploring highlighting in the last couple of months. Lots of practice to go, and AoS has me more inspired to make all sorts of little war bands than I've ever been.

Finally caved in to my desire to do a haunted forest force. I wanted to go for a treeman army back when the big plastic treemen came out, but given I wasn't playing back then I never did. AoS readily goes for mixing stuff so the haunted forest has been beckoning and after getting bored of dino painting have found some old dryad sprues in the garage (from when they first got released as plastic). Bought a GW woods (can't be bothered making terrain) some spirit hosts and a banshee for now. Will add a treeman ancient later some more dryads and spirits and bat swarms.

Reasonable happy with the paint for the dryads, still experimenting with the bases. I'm wanting a marshy/swampy/flooded forest look but haven't done water effect type stuff before. Not sure my first batch are going to work out yet.

UHU seems to work well for spider web effects, though need to practice a bit more on that.

Like the new 32mm bases. That extra room is nice for putting some detail in.

Need to work out what model/scroll to use for the main dude(ess), Was wanting the evil sorceress in the evil forest, hag/witch/enchantress, type thing. Neferata has rules that I like and goes with the other undead, but not sure the big mount works though it would be a cool model. Isabella (drop the vlad rule) might go better. The dark elves might fit as well, looking at them I like the sound of the witch elves and cauldron of blood hidden in the 'dark forest', plus the models for the hag looks nice, though they are bit more combaty rather than magicy. Big hydra in the marsh land as well!

Obviously some goblin spider riders and the big spider are on the horizon - all haunted forests need big spiders.

Start of the haunted forest force. Water effects not come out quite as I wanted, need to play around a bit more about that. Of course photos always immediately show bits I haven't done yet and forgotten about!

Also need a better selection of grass/tufts, going to get some more of those. The current stuff is a bit to 'vibrant'.

Its the army painter ones I'm using. As someone who hasn't done any great mini stuff in a few years, and who never did more than throw a bit of static grass on, I find them very nice. But I only have a couple of variants at the moment so don't really have the more muted colors I would prefer for my feeble attempts at a marshy/flooded ground look.

If you know of some you think are better in some way then please let me know, I just went with what I found first and could get easily.

Heres a couple of places Ive been looking at-

http://www.tajima1.co.uk/index.asp?pageid=282517

http://www.sceneryexpress.com/Prairie_Flowering-Tufts/products/1056/

The second one are probably more realistic looking but also more geared toward model Railroading and likely don't have any real sort of "fantastic" color range.

Still hoping for an RZ AOS report sometime, though in the meantime I'll admit your interest in the gaming has kept me with one foot in round-base fantasy land. Have been thinking about rebasing my 6E-8E 'Skaven' army over to round bases to see how AOS handles 100+ models in an army ...

I'm getting ready to start my varanguard unit, have pulled some slaaneshi icons out to make a slaaneshi varanguard, and then archaon himself.

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.

Great pics in here. I've been building a unit of 8 Plague Censer Bearers from Plague Monk boxes. Those are great boxes and come with a load of extra censers, rats and bits and bobs. It's kind of funny how they set it up and you get like 8 sets of command sprues.

It's kept me watching, too (although unlikely to play - Kings of War is a very good fit for me / our group right now) hoping for that same RZ AoS report

Got these 10 Duardin Thunderers finished off at last!

And I put together a quick guide on the steps I went through, as I work from White Undercoat so it's a method ever so slightly different from GW's Black Undercoat - Base - Wash - Base - Layer - Highlight approach as it cuts out half the steps (and so is great for a speed painting).

Spoiler:


Step 1 is to paint the highlight colour straight onto the white undercoat. For example with the flesh, where I would have started with 'Bugman's Glow' I now jump straight to 'Kislev Flesh'.

The advantage of the white undercoat is layer paints get good enough coverage straight away - and if the undercoat does poke through, it's white rather than black and so adds to the highlights later.


Step 2 is to apply all the washes. For example the flesh has Reikland Fleshshade painted onto it. Because the models were so bright to begin with this stage is akin to dipping. I think if the bases were tidied up this would make a fine table top standard.


Step 3 is to highlight all the colours, using that layer paint again and then mixing it 50/50 with Pallid Wytch Flesh for the final highlight. You can see the highlights are bold and crass under scrutiny, but from table-top eye level they look great and really pop.


Step 4 was to do all the NMM and finish the bases - viola!

@Bottle- thanks a ton for the step by step! I am definitely going to experiment with a white undercoat on the next army! Those are some incredible results.

@RiTides/Boss- Thanks for the kind words, as usual. I will be looking to get some kind of report out in 2016, haven't decided whether to make it a traditional battle report, or something else altogether.

Don't know about you chaps, but I managed to get a lot done over Christmas. A lot. I need to finish off some bases and whatnot, but it is going to end up being the best part of 200-odd minis when I am done!

I started off with a brand new Seraphon force, kicking off with the Skinks and their supporting cast. As always, painting notes and more piccies here: https://ttgamingdiary.wordpress.com/2015/12/31/skink-city/


Sixty Skinks and their leaders!

The heavy boys.


The leaders.
