Such a cool army, and lovely battle masters mat as a back drop! Great work getting the, to such a good standard so quickly. I swear one of your spawns keeps getting another head in each photo.

@CK, that's the general idea I was going for - the wizard concentrates on summoning the raw magic vortex, his pet disc-monster then feeds on it to fly...or maybe he shoots it out...whatever!


Well, it clearly comes across . Loving the group shot, the army's got great tabletop presence!

Thanks guys! Glad you like them. I am very happy to have them at arm's length now instead of held up close while I try to dot the eyes...

Managed to squeeze two games in at the club on Sunday @ 1500 points - one vs Ironjawz and one vs Legions of Nagash.

They were both pretty relaxed, vs Ironjawz more so - we were playing a sort of capture the flag mission so numbers were always going to be an advantage for my dudes. His big unit of goregruntas ate my bestigors turn 1 and the smaller ones pulled off a couple other charges into my bullgors and razorgors. The middle became a bit of a slugging match - Ghorgon missed all his attacks two turns in a row - before I managed to clean them up and press onto his objective and summoned in some bestigors then to help finish them off his brutes & warboss. His mawkrusha did some serious damage but I managed to limit its kills to centigors and the Ghorgon. Beast boys took the win by controlling both objectives on turn 4

Playing vs LoN was a blast, very swingy - different mission where we had diagonal deployment zones and two obs each, extra points for holding your opponent's ones - I got first turn and made some stupid moves that meant bestigors failed their charge and got cleaned up next turn, centigors charged into some skellies sitting on an ovjective but didn’t clear the unit and forgot about the lord on zombie dragon sitting near him...

His next turn he ate half of my army but got a lot of things into charging range.

Ghorgon missed a bunch of attacks on one of his zombie dragons again, but the gavespawn doombull cleaned him up which felt awesome. My sacrificial Ungors got cleaned up so I didn’t have points for summoning til the last turn when my bestigors came back and ate the direwolves on his other ovjective but it was too little too late, lost something like 13-8 on points.

Doombull managed to dispel a few would-be-nasty spells with his gavespawn ability and the shaman actually performed really well on his vortex, managed to get a lot of mortals out with a combo of arcane bolt and stranglethorns.

Was really happy to get them on the table and learned a lot as I played 8-) I forgot a lot of rules and abilities and spent an exorbitant amount of time looking at my war scroll notes but the blokes at the club were great. Really excited for the next one!

I took a few pics on my phone and one of the girls at the club is a photographer (Elocin Photography - she does great stuff) who managed to take some awesome pics.



















I also managed to get a start on the next project - this time a small DKoK tank company. I know I said I'd come back to tzeentch, but I felt the need to get started on these guys - something gritty and realistic after the fantastic red-skinned chaotic orcs. I've made a bit of progress - I'm finding the resin super hard to clean and assemble - but happy so far. I've got my heroes - two sergeants, two company commanders and a primaris psyker for the DKoK, and the first squad with their own sergeant. Pysker needs a bit more work around the staff, then just basing left. Two more squads of guardsmen to babysit their sergeants and a couple of heavy weapons teams then the rest is tanks! I lacked sword/pistol options in my DKoK minis so I borrowed a few from an unpainted admech kill team - only to realise DKoK sergeants can actually take lasguns... oh well!

Thanks Boss and CK!

Bit of progress on the DKoK - finished off assembly for the foot slogging part of the army - even though it nearly killed me. There's still a bit of tidy up around the shoulders and flash removal to do; and their bayonets - though honestly I'm not sure I have the patience to clean and assemble 30 of them so might just leave them off!

I've got three vanilla squads w sergeants, the two marshals, primaris psyker, and a unit of engineers w the two flamer section guys counting as my heavy flamer team. I have enough spare guardsmen parts that I'm thinking I'll make six with plasma guns so that if needed I can play the engineers as 3 x command squads with double plasma and run them around in a chimera to eat some armour; as aside from my 3 russ commanders and two basilisks I don't really have any anti-armour in the list. Much happier with the psyker's staff now!







I have always loved the old metal Valhallans; they were always my favourite IG regiment, and I'm going to try and channel a bit of that in the paint job for these guys. I'm thinking same snow bases as tz and chaos orcs (because they look pretty good for minimal time & effort ) and the green scheme at the bottom right here. Going to try and paint up a test model this weekend.

Yeah, i'm still here and also here to give belated congratulations on getting the beast orcs done! They are the best, I want to hug all of them.

Also also here for this new project, while gritty and realistic aren't my things personally i like to see other people do them and these guys are great, the guy with the staff especially

(Valhallans were one of my favorites too, seeing pictures of them in the rulebooks got me into guard at first)

Thanks turtles! I may well come back to them later - they are not quite 2k points yet and I have plans for dragon ogres...but I need to clear out my hobby shelf first. Way too many unpainted minis still to go!

Here's some progress on the DKoK. All the infantry is primed and ready to paint, but I don't think I've posted pics of the tanks yet.

3D printed of course because I'm cheap and I have a mate with a good printer...

I went with the KV2 turrets because they felt very Kriegian and I'm happy with my choice. There was a hiccup somewhere along the line though and the hellhounds printed out larger than the russ chassis; so they've had their turrets swapped and I will play the punisher tank as a chimera w auto cannon. Still waiting on hull weapons and sponsons for the Russes before they get some paint. There is also an earthshaker carriage made from a $2 shop toy that I haven't taken pics of yet.



And a colour test for the guardsmen. I am pretty happy overall! The greatcoats are going to be a real test for me to paint; the ridges are so fine that getting my clumsy elephant hands to manoeuvre the brush in for highlights is a real challenge, especially around the chest and the skirt at the front. Oh well, they look pretty good at arm's length - and they're only.5 pts! - so I'm going to start batching them this week






I am totally stumped on what to do for the lenses. I thought maybe silver; but would look messy under the helmet. Don't want to go light blue as I think it's too cartoonish. Maybe just highlight them w a flash of white in the corner? Would love to hear your ideas!

Looking nice, especially the KV-2 turrets. On the goggles, maybe go for a tinted style, like a dark red, or a metallic or gloss yellow-green to play off the pants?

First Kreigsman looks cool. With the lenses it depends what you want, red would be a nice contrast to the green (opposites on the old colour wheel!), but Kreig are pretty gritty, so maybe yellow or grey/black?

Interesting models! Curious to see how those printed tanks will look once painted; I find the ridges on 3D-printed models to be quite the issue.

Thanks guys! I tried red on the lenses but with the green coats and snow it felt too Christmassy so I think I settled on orange. I also changed up the scheme a bit; painted the hose bone and changed the metal panel on the chest back to leather; then added bone again to the pack on the back. I think it helps break it up a bit and looks more natural. I think this is the plan moving forward




I also picked up some old Battle for Skull Pass dwarves - I know I said no more buying minis but I got all these for the bargain of $25...



I'm going to spend some time turning them into Fyreslayers as a Christmas present to a mate I play with 40k with who's struggling to find the time/money/willpower to get started on a whole new army in a new system. I did up a draft list and should be able to get to 1500 - perfect match for my chaos orcs.

Here are the WIP test minis - miners turned into auric hearth guard. Trying to go over the top with the 'fire' scheme to make up for the fact they are really just plain old dispossessed... 8-) I am tempted to leave the skin grey like dark iron dwarves from WoW; not sure what to do with the beards then.

OR I could paint the skin and leave the beards grey - will be quick and easy but not sure if it will ruin the effect. What do you guys think - any help much appreciated!

Cool dwarves, or should that be hot? . Neat idea on the grey skin tones, though they look like Chaos Dwarves to me, not that that’s a bad thing!

Just looked thru your plog, very nice work! Your AoS army is very cool, love the deep reds you got going on.
Kreig army is going to look so good in that color scheme, orange lenses will be fine, maybe just a dot of white to draw some attention to the face and eyes.
Fire scheme looks great on the dwarves, looking forward to more!

Looks like you've been busy Tzurk. I enjoyed the battle report pics, great to see the minis out in the wild. Looking forward to seeing the DKoK and dwarves progress. Orange on the dwarves really pops against the black, you could maybe leave them as is though their faces do get a little lost in the beards. Highlighting the skin with blues could work to differentiate from the hair whilst still giving good contrast with the orange

I like the grey skin, but i think the beards do need some sort of color to them.

Hey team! Thanks for all your comments - I ended up sticking with the grey skin as I do like the spooky vibe but also went ahead with amazingturtles' suggestion of colouring the beards. They got a quick wash of agrax and then again with Fuegan Orange - I think they break up the face a bit while keeping the colours quite muted. Good call gobert - we've played with a few lists and the minis match up perfectly to make a 1k chaos dwarf list as well

The project is very nearly finished after a couple of weeks - I am super happy with how they have turned out given the rush. Here are a few pics of the happy group (minus 3 crew members for the grudge pony turned Helstorm Rocket Battery who I haven't gotten hold of yet).

















No real progress elsewhere; with this finished I am tempted to do up a quick Loyal 32 of DKoK as a Christmas present for my brother before I dive back into my own army but will have to see how we go for time.

Thanks for looking!

Wowsers! They look awesome! Especially so given you only started them a few weeks back. Pretty kind of you to be gifting two amazingly painted armies to your mate.

You’ve also completely put my shoddy attempt at lava bases to shame too. looking at yours, I think the larger transitions work to help convey the heat better (if that makes sense?!?) by giving more of a glow.

I like the beard work, helps to add definition to them too!

Thanks guys!

It's been a while and there have been intermittent bursts of productivity in amongst all the cheese-eating and beach-going over Christmas holidays. I've finished off the DKoK bar some hull/sponson weapons that are still in the mail, got distracted and built a battlewagon for my brother in law out of a $20 toy, and started a new all-dreadnought army...fun times ahead!

First up the battlewagon. I was really impressed with the detail on this toy on the shelf and got thinking about 40kifying it straight away. I really only added the guns, cobbled together from a bunch of pieces I had lying around. I got it converted and painted up in a day as a Christmas present.

The original toy:



After the Big Mek got his hands on it:









The next project after the DKoK will likely be these guys (sorry tzeentch...and kill team table...) - a bunch of old box dreadnoughts that come together at a pretty neat 2k points, with no Troops or knees in sight! I have done a bit of converting so far, with more needed to remove the Blood Angel/Space Wolf markings. I am thinking either a custom chapter or Celestial Lions...

A furioso and a counts-as Murderfang



Counts-as Bray'arth and two chaplain dreadnoughts



Bjorn and two ven dreads with axe/shield



Another furioso and a potentially too-silly lion headed dread that will get quad lascannons soon...



Some more (awful) photos of the home-made axe dread next to the real deal





And a librarian





And finally the DKoK - I love how these guys look altogether, even if they are all a bit rushed - I painted the whole army in 3 days for a games day!

The whole army:


Engineers:


Marshal, primaris psyker, and a cyclops demolition vehicle:


Lots of armour!


Footsloggers


All the turrets are magnetised, and I put together a gatling cannon KV2 for my tank commander:


We're having another games day tomorrow, so will hopefully remember to get a few pics of the boys in action and do up a bit of a battle report for the next post.

Now, on to the next project!

Thanks CB! I batched the infantry in 22s across 2 days and got the tanks all done in a third. Holidays - well spent 8-)

Yeah the lifta was an eyecatcher for sure gobert - and thank you for the heads up, I have had a quick look and will need to check it out further. I do love the colour scheme!

I took another turn and went back to the tzaemons for a bit tonight, got a 1k game on Thursday so had to do up some exalted flamers and screamers. They've since been primed and hopefully get some paint on them tomorrow - my son's bedtime willing...I also slapped a bit of paint on the game boards, going to layer up a bit with sponges and sprays and then add some hazard stripes/metallic areas and finish with some washes. Hopefully get those done soon so I can start getting terrain pieces underway!



A few people have pointed out the suggestive nature of the exalted flamer shape... oops, bit late to change

Similar thought re: flamer shape But I appreciate the momentum the design has all the same.

But just generally excited to see work on the Tizz things! And yea, really impressive run on the guard - three days indeed

Hahaha - yeah I was surprised I didn't notice it before and now i can't unsee it...oh well!

I've got a bit of paint on them, still a bit of work left to do. You can half see in the background the daemon prince I've touched up a bit as well - he needs a repaint, washes are way too dark on him, but I tried to combat that by painting back in some silver. Gonna throw a black wash over the top and see how it pulls up.



The game boards are sponged up ready for some detailing - I was originally going to do some hazard stripes surrounded by plated metal areas on the short edges and maybe a strip through the middle but I'm tempted now to leave it as a sort of dirty concrete and just rely on scatter terrain to build up the industrial look...might build a few pieces first to see what they look like together before I go putting down anymore paint on the boards. What do you guys think?



It's also not technically hobby related but a while back I built this sensory board for my son - sacrificing some bits I was saving for terrain in the process. Building this actually gave me the idea to use the woodland grey fence paint for the game board - inspiration is everywhere



not sure where to go from here, the dreadnoughts are kind of on the backburner while I work on the tzaemons but I want to get a start on some terrain as well. We'll see where we end up...

Well, I’m going to be having nightmares again tonight with those new tzhapes! Cool sensory board though, I could have hours of fun with that myself. Once it’s done being a sensory board it might make decent terrain too!
