@Mastiff I'm absolutely in love with your take on the snake spell. Those colours are downright gorgeous together and the scales are so beautifully rendered, great job!

@Elmir Dude those skellies are amazing! They are dark and moody but without making them grimy to the point of looking messy. You somehow managed to make them look old and worn but with such a clean paint style that should not have worked for that look. I'm very impressed, great job.

Thank you for the kind words folks. I've meanwhile continued with the first unit of 5 hexwraith alternatives from FleshCraft Studios:



A much better match for the current NH aesthetics than the old hexwraiths imo.

Rn i'm workin on a 3-4 rogue idol bonesplitterz list, making the idols by taking a bunch of rocks, smashing em with a sledgehammer, then hot gluing em into shape. I'm just waiting for one to fall apart, the rubble crushing some other models on the table like they do in the rules

Well, our map based campaign finally got off to a start.
We'd originally thought that we'd have 5-6 players. Needed up with 8 (two of wich are brand new to the game).

1st evening was largely explaining the campaign system/rules, plot initial moves/attacks on the map, followed by 1 small game to teach the game rules to the new kids.

Finally got hold of Astreia Solbright in Mortal Realms today and spent the afternoon assembling the model.

Its a fabulous model that only cost £8 but there are a few noticable seams around the Dracoline's ankles and snout, which a tiny amount of milliput should fill them nicely. Oh, her left shoulder pad and the rock ontop of the statue head is also in need of filling too. The overall model - especially the base - is incredibly detailed and would recommend the kit even at its full price of £25.

Just an observation but on the website and some videos Astreia has gold plastic, but the one I picked up today was gray.

Game wise she'll be one of two Lord Arcaniums leading a unit of Sequitors, while the other Lord( riding a Gryph-Charger ) leads a unit of Liberators. I'm two Sequitors short of a minimum unit and I think I'd better hurry up and purchase a small pack of ETB sequitors - possibly Storm Strike - before they become discontinued with 3rd edition taking over soon.

In the coming days I have 2 units of sword/shield Skeleton Warriors (LoN tome as the new SB wasn't out yet when our League games began) to paint up beyond their basecoats.

Squad #1 tar pitted a unit of Bone Reaper cav - and killed 3! of them.
Yes, all the skellies were eventually destroyed. But this allowed another unit to A) hold an objective just long enough, B) by killing those 3 riders they ensured that the only way the cav could take that objective was to kill virtually all of the other unit. And there just wasn't time to accomplish that.

Squad #2? This unit stood their ground against Arkhan, put a few wounds on him, and urvived the battle with only 1 model remaining.
Most importantly that 1 model tipped the balance of who controlled the objective in this quadrant.

So TWO rando units of humble skeleton warriors have earned their paint this week.

My Stormcast model collection, by means of Mortal Realms magazine, is shocking leaving most as understrength units.

3 Sequitors including a Prime.
9 Liberators including three Primes.
2 Prosecutors including a Prime.
3 Retributors including a Prime.

...Not much I can do about the Prosecutors nor Retributors but there was an option for the Sequitors and Liberators; the ETB pack of 3 Sequitors and Steelhearts Champions. The later is pretty cool as I only need two standard Liberators and Steelheart himself is practically a Knight-Questor with a bit of conversion work, which would be £17.50 alone but I just ordered all six models for £22.95.

Nighthaunts fared much better with the odd overstrength unit by only a single model, but I've got 9 Grimghast Reapers. By the looks of it the Cairn Wraith is practically the same and I can get him for £8 whenever to make up the whole 10 models. But even without the Reapers I'm still looking at a 1,000 point strong army. Hurrah!

The new Orcs and Goblins aren't my cup of tea, but if the 40K Recruit Edition is anything to go by, the next small starter set for AoS ought to be a great way to expand the Stormhost.

Elmer, you have convinced me to order Radukar! Fantastic work!

I've been thinking about swapping Radukar's head for that of a Fenrisian wolf, but not sure if it would be too big or too small. He looks a bit too much like Kratos from God of War for my liking...

I have been having weird times since april. April I finished almost 240 models. After that...0.

On the flip side I have tons of models started! I have the 6 stegadons and 3 bastiladons nearly done, 6 lumineths+terrain good start, Sigvald started and now got 10 bloodwarriors, 2 priests, whip guy, soul grinder and bloodthirster to most of colours base+shade.

Too many projects clearly!

At least Seraphon are nearly done...just bastiladon crews and then skulls for all monsters + hanging heads on stegadons.

Mate, the amount of models you bang out you must have a team of assistants or at least a Butler taking care of business.

I've been painting up my Sylvaneth in anticipation of 3.0. I've never played AoS before - I played Wood Elves in Warhammer Fantasy from about 4th edition all the way through to the End Times, so Sylvaneth were an obvious choice for me I'm really happy with the colour scheme - I went for a spring theme inspired by cherry blossom trees for those gorgeous light pink leaves.

Surfing the Tervigon Wave...on a baby.

Took me a bit but I got Kemmler done to go along with Krell after he was featured on the Hobby Roundup.

My Soulblights are not only now becoming a painting project... seriously, more effort than my Lizards... but also found themselves themed by Krell and Kemmler as a narrative - it's a Cairns army. Almost entirely Deathrattle, the few Vampires being outcasts and exiles - the Zombie Dragon Lord is going to be a 'black knight' as it were and the 2 Underworlds Vamps are going be painted with tattoos and brands to mark them as escaped prisoners or traitors. Ruleswise as tempting as Legion of Night is (ambush being the armies emerging from the cairns, the immune to battleshock trait etc) I think Legion of Blood just...works better for the Deathrattle buffs.

That is a nice K&K! I like how you stuck to a muted palette but still used a variety of different colors. I hope you are able to fix whatever mishap happened to Krell's axe, it looks like he was out in the sun a bit too long!

Krell was very much a rescue that I got for free - involved having to pin the Axe, clean him up and redo his back a bit. I kind of like the curve. It's subtle but it works. It's grown on me to be honest, the idea that the handle is just a bit warped and not perfectly straight seems more organic if anything.
