Need some advice from modellers with flight stand experience here.

Me and a friend have decided it could be amusing to build some niche armies for local 2v2 tournaments.
He’s decided to run steam tanks (command tank, 2 normal, 1 converted to be a hurricanum)
Original plan was then for me to do the same, but the new KO book as sparked some ideas.

Since he has land covered I plan to run air.
Having had the airships before I know the flying stems border on weak on all except the Gunhauler.

Has anyone used clear rod on an ironclad or frigate at all please?
If so, how did it work out?
I previously used some ruins along with the stem to support an ironclad as the stem alone is stressed badly by the weight.
This time though, I want to have it look as if it’s flying rather than grazing against a rock pillar.

Just get acrylic/metal rods, they go from 1mm tup to 25mm thick,s o any size you like really.

Here is an example from amazon, note i'm not saying buy this one from this person, just use as an example

That looks pretty decent actually.
Assuming the best way to attach it would be to file it down into a taper near the top like the normal stands and drill a hole in the ship.

The stand it comes with is the same one as the Gunhauler and that is just about good enough for the hauler.
The frigate is delicate at best but the ironclad just wont stay on it.

Getting anxious just looking at them.
Assembly and cleaning will take long enough, the painting will likely kill me lol.

If I can pull it off though, there’s 160 chainrasps done.

That's quite an elephant there. It makes it easier if you break it up by the basic box size and focus on just that one group at a time.

Finally taking the plunge and starting AoS with Nighthaunt. I have 60 chainrasps and 12 mymourn banshees to get through and I'll hopefully have a 2k army by the end of the year (so I hope).

Well, building a CoS army (mostly for my team event at a major event) decided to go full 2k, going to paint a full 2k army in 6 weeks. Here is what i have now.

My main AoS project for 2020 is:
Continuing to grow the local shops AoS scene. In a 4 month span we've gone from 2 of us to 9 players (with a 10th trying to decide what faction he wants to join in with)

It started back in Oct.
Myself & one of the guys I play Pathfinder/D&D with decided to play some actual AoS. Put some of our long dormant WHFB stuff + some of the cool new models GWs been releasing to use beyond on our D&D table.
And so we set up game on a free evening down at the shop....

A week later we were joined by another of our D&D group who had the Skaven 1/2 of the 8e(?) WHFB starter box - picked up cheap for use as wererats awhile back. His only WH xp to date had been with the Total War PC games.

And so we set up another game down at the shop. His tiny Skaven force + a matching value of my own ancient Skaven vs the undead.
One of the guys watching us play has Nurgle demons (mostly from playing 40k)

Now there were 4 of us. So we set up a Path to Glory campaign. Night Haunts, Skaven, Nurgle, & my own Fyreslayers.

As we played, this attracted 3 more people. So our 2nd (current) PtG campaign consists of 7 players: NH, Skaven, Nurgle, Gloomspite (me, I switched forces) + Khorne Demons, Tzeentch Demons, & a brand new, 0xp, Seraphon player (who's eagerly awaiting his new Tome).
Great fun is being had.

We now have 2 more players (Beasts of Chaos & Sylvanth) looking to join us for PtG III.

And now we've begun playing general Multi-player AoS games on Saturdays as well. Our favorite way to play most minis games at the shop on Sat evening is 2 -3 players per side on the 8x4 table. So for AoS we're looking at "Bring about 1k pts."
This has attracted a 10th player - no WH/AoS experience, but like the models, so he's doing his research on what to join us with.

My goal? Add +1 player per month through 2020.


Other than that?
*At some point this year I'm going to build a Bonereaper force. I just like the models too much not to.
*I've got to paint up another Mangler Squig soon. The running joke in my circle is that my models have to "Earn their paint" by doing something notable during play. Well this guy? He earned it. He entered play with a primer base coat. He then proceeded to eat 2! Bloodthirsters, a units of Bloodcrushers, 1/2 a unit of Blood Letters & then exploded all over a Slaughter Priest in our last game.

Ha! Those are great fun. Fantastic idea!


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Took a year off painting to get my house fixed up to sell, had lots of time to think of new ideas.

Here’s my Hurricanum / Bloodwrack Shrine, which will have two different crews, depending on whether I’m fielding it in my Daughter’s of Khaine army, or my Cities of Sigmar list.





This is about 90% complete, still need to add arm and reigns, greenstuff some gaps etc. Then build a second crew.

Well, my main goal of adding +1 player to the shops pool remains on track. (I seriously thought I might miss it here in Feb!)

But Friday we welcomed a new Stormcast player to our ranks.

Social media has been a great tool in helping my scene grow. Meet-ups every 2nd week, various games between, take pictures of the games and the playspace with the people gaming, post them on public hobby/boardgame groups and we usually get a few people interested and some even want to join in.

In hobby-ing related things, I'm working on Arkhan the Black, and trying to make him not the wobbliest piece of gak in the world. I'm going to pin one of the mount's front 'hands' in to one of the Stormvault scenary brazier pieces, and make a smoke effect billowing up from the brazier and around the claw. The pin itself has gone well, now comes the hard part of making the solid smoke. THEN painting the whole model and base

Sure, that'd work too. Especially if all I was aiming for were more players.
But doing it the old fashioned hard way: face to face selling, 1 person at a time, preferably to people who aren't already AoS players (or even miniatures gamers) is more fun

Been working on a Beastman warband. I rebased them onto 25mm bases because I prefer them, and will be using these for Age of Fantasy from 1 Page Rules (I hope people don't mind me posting them here, the 1 Page Rules are a direct port for AoS). I had a Beastman army in 6th and 7th edition Warhammer, but sold it when I moved country back in the day and I have regretted it for years, so getting these guys painted up has been really nice for me. I love Beastmen. Planning to add Frostgrave Gnolls to this as well, and convert some Centigor from Marauder Horsemen, and a metal Reaper Demagorgon for a Jabberslythe stand in.


Bestigors were hard to paint!


Ungor with Bows, not a thing last time I played Beastmen but a good addition.


Gors, the classic.


Cygor, with an excessive amount of skull based fashion accessories.

Nice dude, I like those bases and the overall color choice. The Cygor in particular looks great.
