Polished off a group of Khorne characters last night!



More piccies and painting notes here: https://ttgamingdiary.wordpress.com/2015/10/16/the-usual-khorne-spects/

Next up on the painting, and hoping to get them more or less done over the weekend (these are simple models, so not too daunted about their numbers);

5 Wrathmongers
5 Skullreapers
10 Bloodletters
10 Plaguebearers
3 Nurgling bases

Also have Festus the Leechlord half done - he may get put to one side in preference for the above units, but should be able to get at least a few more colours on him!

Speaking of Heroes, I got a batch of Death Heroes done for my Death army:



I also got to play my Death models as a complete army for the first time this friday at the local GW. We had a 4 player game of around 35 wounds each. It was very fun :-D



Onto current projects, here's what I have been working on this weekend:



More Empire coming off the square bases!



And here's the round bases they will be moved onto.



Here are some already on the round bases. The bases are awaiting a wash, drybrush, static grass etc (and a touch up to their boots).



I really enjoyed painting the Duardin cannon from my old Battle For Skull Pass set, so I decided to paint another batch of stunties. The Grudge Pony looks sweet on an oval base, I must admit :'-)



Two High Elf characters I am working on. I hate finecast. This was my first experience with the stuff and it has been horrible. At times I am tempted to just throw these models in the bin, but I'll keep working on them and hopefully they'll polish up with more time spent on them.



Some Hexwraiths I am working on. Only the metals are finished right now. They were going to be purple/pink to match the skeletons, but they looked like the Grim Reapers of Ribena, so I decided they will be black to match the Cairn Wraith instead. Another coat of Eshin Grey (I start my blacks with grey) is needed to get rid of the pink.

So, there are all my current projects! What about you guys?

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

There is not this idea.

I... think I need that grudge pony. Not for any particular army, it just looks so neat.

I'm finding painting gors to be a chore (rhyming!), even when I'm painting them in a multitude of colors. The ungors seem to have more personality.

Awesome work as always, Bottle. You do your bases in a similar way to me, but put a lot more work into them (it shows!). Might have to revise the way I do things myself...

I finished off another ten Bloodletters and Plaguebearers this weekend, along with another three Nurgling bases - with 30 of each of the lesser daemons, I think that is about all I will need in the foreseeable future as in the published campaigns, daemons tend to get used as support forces for the Bloodbound, Rotbringers and Bleak Horde. That said, I have an idea to create a brand new campaign with Valkia on one of her hunting expeditions - need to figure out who she is fighting though.

I also just about finished a unit of Skullreapers and Wrathmongers, need to do just a few details and their bases to wrap them up. Piccies should be done around the middle of the week!

Next on the table will be some Chaos Hounds and a Blood Throne, and I might have to do Skarbrand as well. Oh, and I have some Plague Toads and Pox Riders to put together as well... However, we have a group painting day coming this weekend, and I might take that opportunity to do the Malefic Gate and wall sections of the Dreadhold I put together a short while ago (top of this thread, actually - good to see the progress!).

Finally, I had a bit of 'luck' on eBay this weekend. I have been after a bunch of Chaos Warriors to act as the foot troops of both the Rotbringers and Bleak Horde (the Bloodbound do just fine with their Bloodreavers and Blood Warriors), but aside from a little unit of 12 I managed to pick up a little while ago, I kept getting outbid. So, this weekend I decided I would take no prisoners and put a bid on every Chaos Warrior lot I could find.

Yeah, you guessed it, they all came in So, now I have the best part of 100 Chaos Warriors on their way, which will more than cover what I planned to do for the Rotbringers and Bleak Horde. Not sure what to do about the remainder. Could just have more for both Nurgle and Tzeentch, I suppose. Don't think there is much point making them Slaanesh, as when that force appears once more, I am guessing it will be with a whole new miniatures range...

^ I've recently put together a Skull Cannon myself. I took the Herald for the Throne and put him on a 40mm base to use as my Bloodletter Hero, to go along with my 20 Bloodletters, which I also switched to 32mm bases. Saved me a few bucks and I think he looks pretty good. Haven't started painting the cannon yet but sure does look like a lot of little parts.

I've been finishing up a general Khorne force, which includes the starter box, war hounds, Bloodletters and Bloodcrushers. I just put an order in for some Plague Monks and Plaguebearers to start a Nurgle force, not sure on how big I will expand that one.

Going to add a Bloodthirster? Fun model, both to paint and play (and it is nice to have to one side, just in case your opponent takes something silly!).

Speaking of Nurgle, last week I managed to bag the eBay deal of the year. I have been wanting a Great Unclean One for my Nurgle force for a while as the war in the Realm of Life kinda needs one (if you are following the storyline). However, the current Great Unclean One is not... completely awesome, especially when put alongside the Bloodthirster. It is too small and almost looks like Gardus could step on it! So, that meant getting the Forge World version, but there was no way I was going to lash out the £120-odd it costs.

(I had seen one of these models on a bring and buy stand at a show earlier this year for £50, and was kicking myself that I had not picked it up).

I had been looking for one on eBay but, being a cheapskate, I kept getting outbidded the few times one popped up, even when they were missing the odd part.

Until I went onto eBay Poland - last week I managed to snatch one for little more than £30, including postage, and it arrived today!

The question, I guess, is whether it is a recast - and having looked at it, I have no idea. The weight 'feels' genuine, and the seller does not have more on sale. I have therefore decided not to think too much about that, and instead concentrate on how I am going to paint it.

Moral of the Story: eBay is your friend!

Bit torn... the completionist in me would love that as the perfect centrepiece, though I'm not huge on the model. But the price is hard to justify, and I don't actually like assembling and painting big models. For the same cost I could get a few boxes of regular troop types, and they bring me more hobbying joy.

In that case, for a bit of daemonic leadership, you can't really go wrong with Valkia

I've been kicking around the idea of a "Forrest primeval" army.

It would be an army of Bacchus (using Daemon Prince rules,) with sylvaneth forces, beastman, and Forrest goblins.

pretty much treemen, dryads, spider riders, gors/ungors/bestigors, Wolves, giant spider, and will-o-the-wisps. (using spirit base rules.)

The background would be a Native entity (Bacchus) raising up forces of everything that lives in the Forrest to fight the incursion of Nurgle into the plane of living. His questionable apperance gives good reason for him and his army to fight most armies.

Finished off the Wrathmongers and Skullreapers last night;



More piccies and painting notes here: https://ttgamingdiary.wordpress.com/2015/10/22/skullreapers-wrathmongers/

Was going to do more of these guys, but there is not much variation in the kit (other than the Skullreaper/Wrathmonger split) and the joy of AoS is that if you don't want to do certain models, there is no gaming reason to do so!

It turns out that our group painting day is going to be next weekend, so the addition to the Dreadhold is going to have to wait a bit longer. However, I have just put together Skarbrand, a Great Unclean One, a Maggoth Lord and a bunch of Chaos Warhounds, so I have plenty to be getting on with! I have also almost completed Festus (will be done this weekend) and I have nearly 100 Chaos Warriors (don't ask...) on their way from eBay, which I might get to leapfrog over the other models if they arrive before the weekend.

Busy, busy, busy!

Oh, and everyone else see that AoS seems to be getting another release window in a couple of weeks?

Nice pics! I finished my Bloodletter Herald from the Skull Throne box and am taking a breather on all this red and lava I've been painting and switched gears to some Plague Monks. It's nice to paint green. I got a box of them with Plaguebearers, and depending on which unit I like to paint more will probably determine if this is a Pestilens-heavy army or a Nurgle-heavy army.

I must say my order got literally run over by a truck on its way to me - Canada Post gave it to me in a bag, as the box had been destroyed. Somehow the sprues all got bent out of shape and snapped but the actual bits I needed had a 95% survival rate, and it was easy enough to glue two swords back together to make it out without casualties.

All my other projects are slowly coming along, and now that these 10 have been moved off the conveyor belt, we see a new project take it's place. Currently working on a Garden of Morr! (I have to say, wow the kit has loads of scenery for £30!)

You know how you sometimes get that one model on your painting table that is half-done, you intend to finish it, but other projects keep overtaking it? For me, lately, that was Festus the Leechlord, and last night I finally got him done!



More piccies here, as always: https://ttgamingdiary.wordpress.com/2015/10/26/festus-the-leechlord/

I had hoped to get more done, but if I can spare a few hours this coming week, I am hoping to also finish off a bunch of Chaos Warhounds (just need their horns and faces completing), a Blood Throne of Khorne (bigger than you might think, but also quicker to paint than you might think), and maybe, just maybe, Skarbrand as well.

I also managed to get a whole bunch of 'prep' work done for future models, mainly building and basing - a veritable horde of Chaos Warriors and Gors, along with the Glottkin, which had been sitting in its box for a long time, making me feel built every time I walked past!

This weekend, however, I have a big project planned - a substantial portion of the Chaos Dreadhold...

I'll do my best to remember to take a photo when I get home. Working on the Starter Box Stormcast Eternals in the Celestial Vindicator paint scheme. It's turning out to be more Sotek Green than turquoise like I had hoped. But, it's looking good anyway.

EDIT: Completely forgot to take a photo last night. My bad on that one. Blame HALO 5. I'll try to remember tonight.

The Blood Throne is an awesome model. I like the skullcannon variant much more mostly because it doesn't have the two bloodletters in front of it.

@Matt: Last night I was going through the old 4th edition 40k book and the kill team rules left me with the impression that they'd not be out of place reworked for AoS. You may want to have a glance at them as your next Battleplan. Alternatively if you can't, I could do it (mainly because I want to see a battle report with them and to tell the truth I won't play it myself), but I'm sure I'll be doing a much sloppier job than you.

I'm almost finished painting my Stormcast from the starter set. I won't bother posting a picture because they look exactly like every other gold-and-blue sigmarine. I was thinking of breaking out with my next set of Liberators and going for one of the purplish-crimson ones (Astral Templars or Celestial Warbringers). Is there a place where the set of paints used to get that color is mentioned?

Just got the AoS app and I'm perusing the Lizardman warscrolls. They look a bit tasty. Used Teh warscrolls site to get a 20pt force together. Just trying to arrange my first game.

Does that count?!

Then, if I enjoy it I'll look at rebasing...
