I bought the Dominion box set as I really like the look of the newer Stormcast Eternals over the older ones. I still hate the heads, so all of them will be either no helmet or they will have this style helmet on them, which I have 3d printed at home.

I prefer the figures with their masks, myself, so if you ever want rid of those let me know. I could always use the spares. I do like them with helmets as well. Just not a fan of the bare heads. Prefer their original animated automata vibe.

Paintjob looks pretty good man. However, I can heartily recommend these to help with your vision situation. I love mine.

That sallet helm really transforms the stormcast into a decent model, very nice!

Amazing what a head swap can do - I really didn't like the new Stormcast when I first saw them but that model has changed my mind. Great paintjob has helped too

Thanks everyone, another quick drop. Mostly done with the banner. I think just some basing to do, possibly some stripes from the “rays”.

They really do look much better with the sallets don't they? I ended up sinking the helmets in a little though as the bottom of the face should be at least partially covered by the front of the armour. (unless they have giraffe necks ) The banner looks really good in those colours

The knight helmet is much better than the old iron man face.

I think the helmets even work with the Annihilators, which is what I was worried most about to be honest.

Thanks everyone. Lots of work done today and also plenty of free time to paint.



I am really feeling this scheme. Special thanks to the man Duncan Rhodes, as I shamelessly pilfered these colors from his recent video on how to paint the Conquest 100 kingdoms knights of something or another.

Also finally watching Game of Thrones on my own while painting, so lots of good times this weekend.

Top stuff, Yndrasta is such a fantastic model and that colour choice on the wings is great!

Still not sold on the Annihilators as minis, but they certainly take your colour scheme very well.

Great work with all the Stormcast, the scheme is very cool. I was gonna go with metallic blue for mine, but the silver knightly armour has a great look. And damn you for showing those printed helmets. I don't even dislike the normal ones, but these are so cool

These Stormcasts look great. The printer helmets and the colours really help them straddle the New/Old World divide, especially with that banner! Great stuff Theo!

Progress isn’t progress no matter how little occurs.

Preators and Vindicators

Plus assembled the last of the characters and their gryph -hound


One major thing I have struggled with is buying stuff before my last project is done. It derails me every time. I have started dozens of armies in dozens of games, only to never finish one. I have been wanting to buy more to add to this army already, so far I have stopped myself. Hopefully I can restrain myself and finish up this half of the Dominion box set. If I can do that then I will look at buying the next box (either another Dominion Box, or the one that has the troops and the terrain). I still have not decided if I will keep or sell/trade off the KreulBoyz. While they can fight with all the Orruk I have, I still am undecided on their fate.

'No matter how little occurs'... that's half an army in a week or so, man! A rate that (almost) puts Graven to shame! Certainly looking sharp en masse though.

Excellent progress and fun to watch everything come together!

"One major thing I have struggled with is buying stuff before my last project is done."

This. So much this. For my first couple of years here on Dakka I was fairly good about following this rule. Then I found Kickstarter and was afraid some things would 'get away' before I was actually done with the current project. Of course, once you break a rule, it gets easier to break it some more. Now the rule is (to try to) work on only one project at a time. LOER helped me violate that one, as I'd try to complete an entry plus finish whatever I was working on before.

I'm slowly getting back into the groove and wrapping up a bunch of things that have been sitting around half-finished. Part of the delay is 3d printing: once I replaced the Ender with a machine that actually worked it was easy to lose an entire evening just fiddling with .stl files and getting a good first layer laid down. And certainly part of the problem was just less time to give to the hobby- it's been a very strange last 18 months.

Thanks for the updates and the inspiration, Theo- rock on!

I am loving the look of those helms on the Stormcast. Totally changes the look of those models in a good way. And the red and metal and gold paint scheme really works well, too. The overall effect is excellent.

Thanks everyone , I have been able to keep myself from buying anything new and derailing these guys. It’s been hard, but being too busy has kept me on the path.

Here is the horde

Close ups of a couple of spear and shield.

I think they all will be this blondish ginger haired color.

And the preatorians are in the back.


Still have the Lord and the wizard to do as well as the Gryph hound. After that then I will have to start considering the next step/purchase.

They're excellent, and they look like good, characterful fantasy miniatures rather than bonkers soulless robots of questionable aesthetic. Fab, simple, effective conversion work.

These look great Theo. It’s amazing how the headswap and colour scheme change the vibe of these guys so much.

They don’t actually look like Stormcast Eternals anymore. They look very much like they could appear in any fantasy game setting from D&D to even historical (if the proportions weren’t so “heroic”).

Top effort. They look fantastic.

I don't know if you did more than a head swap, but the changes you made and your painting make these the most pleasing to the eye Stormcast Eternals I have ever seen.
