Consider it punishment for how dirty of a player you are for running 15

But seriously, that head swap works really well. If someone did not know the miniatures they would not even see it as a conversion.

I only painted them for a major GT as BoC when DoK/FeC was top armies and before Disks was nerfed, went 2-3, not bad for fighting DoK and FeC... lol

Well the Goblin painting project, though it's gotten a bit bogged down here near the end, is very nearly complete.
Some misc pieces, around 15 goblins (mostly detail work), a mangler squig, & 12 orks to go. Oh, and I figured out a color combo I really like for my squigs - so repainting 15 of the little beasts....

Up after that I have some easy Sylvanth/Cities Of Sigmar stuff to finish off by July.

And then it'll be onto my DoK stuff - a min. sized Melusai Nest Battalion + Hag - build & paint 22 models by roughly July 11th. Once I settle on a skin tone that'll be a really quick project.

I got the shiny new elves and pulled a all-nighter to get them built and almost completely painted.



The Vanari Wardens have 3d printed total war shadow warrior helmets that I found online and modified in blender.


I am aware of the mold lines and don't really care.



I also gave an isle of blood mage a spare Dawnrider helmet to use as a Cathallar




*sips caffeinated beverage* I'm glad I don't have to work tomorrow.

Such brilliant minis. I like the scheme you've gone with.

The dark steel and yellow look fantastic, I love it.

For myself, I did some practice on Sisters of Averlorn, and going to have them as stand-in Sentinels. Going with mostly the box art, but darker gold, and I'm going to end up doing black robes, instead of cream. Still got to wait til Tuesday for my stuff to arrive. The ones in purple were me testing out schemes, and deciding I didn't like it.

Very striking scheme you've gone with on the sisters. I'd have been tempted to go with orange magical bows for the contrast with the blue but the green you've gone with looks nice too.

I'm not a fan of the new archers so if I end up collecting them Shadow Warriors can pull double duty with my City.

Looking great! Got any more big conversions/kitbashes planned?

Also probably of helpful if you end up collecting Lumineth, the Shadow Warriors/Sisters of Avelorn are just about the same size as the new Warden models, so their scale won't look off or weird when they're side-by-side.

Thank you. I'm doing 10 quick Irondrakes for my July pledge to leave plenty of time for August to be devoted mostly to my take on Teclis.

Original sculpt
OOP FW Dragon
Aetherquartz
160mm base (Pretty sure that's what he's on)

Cheers for the scale comparison. I love most of their range but nice to know the classics fit in if needed.

That's really nice clean work. Can't wait to paint him myself.

And this big badboy has been finished: It's a 3D printable model from Fleshcraft Studios that functions as a mourngul stand in.







Some chainrasp for scale:

That mournghul looks awesome, such a high quality print too, wish I was able to get results like that with my own printer.

@Elmir - I must say the finish and texture on that miniature is absolutely beautiful.

A new member on the thread here! Hopefully going to play AoS with a friend who has already started collecting their army.
I just couldn't make up my mind on a force (I keep jumping between all of them!) so have ordered the big hardback rulebook - I feel I need to learn some of the background, look at the pretty pictures and hopefully get inspired!

So just to say have enjoyed reading a good bulk of this thread and seeing what other people have been doing, hopefully will have something of my own to contribute before too long!

More Irondrakes for my City:






And possibly the start of a new army but could also be a "Counts as" Alarielle for The Living City.

With the new anvil allowing for custom hero’s I’ve decided to bite the bullet and get this guy done.
It’s been nothing but cursed from the start though.

First incarnation was dragged up the garden and chomped on by a pet.

A while later I began to rebuild it slowly.
After getting to roughly where it was in the first place I moved house.
Sadly it got crushed by the company that were helping us move (2 warhammer cases got crushed, despite being labelled fragile)
To make it worse, some of the parts had got free in their truck, leading to missing parts.


Finally begun to rebuild it yet again though, hopefully getting it finished this time especially since I can use it in games.

Mounts mostly done (just some finishing touches & snow on the base) for my old school Arkhan conversion. Rider's about 1/4 done. Been working on this on and off for months now, will finally be finishing it just in time for the petrifex nerf to make him no longer good. :p

Memo to self: Do not photo green models on a green table.

However, made a start on my new all-Troggoth army - getting ready for a new narrative campaign!

All-trogg is pretty dam strong for a narrative campaign (they go 4-1 at tournaments), but at least there'll be pretty models to look at!

Consider; Games Workshop rules not so much games but as toolboxes for players to craft an experience from, and open/narrative/matched play just examples of how things can be put together.

We'll be using this as the base for the campaign: https://www.warhammer-community.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/-jW22-Nj~Am44oF~.pdf

They get pretty well hobbled enough to make it fun!
