Sounds wise, it's too iconic a colour combo. Purples maybe? And as for "counts as 1" I feel that way whenever I finish something giant

Here’s the newer color scheme.

Also the new test color for the sylvaneth, basically grey and then splotchy grays, greens and browns. The broken trunk on the base will get a similar treatment as well.

Also skin for the rhino thing is started.


More when I can.

Thanks, no the rhino is from this months (October 2021) patreon from Lost Kingdoms Miniatures. $13.00 for all the files in this picture

As well as the welcome package of 7 other samples of their ranges (the female wood elf I printed iron the previous page with the owl on her arm. It’s all pre-supported or not if you’d prefer to do it yourself. This thing still needs its howdah printed, though I will likely just print the bottom part with the double barreled cannon and not the next two stages upwards. These guys are called the Magmhorin, I missed out on their Kickstarter a few years ago, but it was the reason I finally bought a 3D printer. This month is an obvious tribute to the 300.

Pans labyrinth is a movie I will have to rewatch, it was spooky, which I think suits the Sylvaneth well.

Calling him done.


While I like the idea of the bugs carrying stumps full of arrows, I just don’t like the execution, so I’m going with these broken stumps from Epicbasing.com. I just downloaded some trees from them and as I have the basement tonight I will be printing a plate full of trees . Big happy trees.



I was going to make this army for Kings of War, but then I got thinking (I know I shouldn’t do that ), I’m more likely to ever play AOS than KOW. Even though Sylvaneth are supposedly low tier, things tend to change quickly, so I might as well give it a shot.

Sadly I will probably never play AOS either, but since the FLGS won’t stock or support Mantic, I have a greater than 0 chance with AOS.

I stayed up later than normal, hopefully I don’t pay for it tomorrow . But I accomplished a lot in my mind at least.

I like the greener guy more, but it isn’t terrible to have the variation between the models.


At least the basing looks fairly cohesive.

Just started the next set of prints of large trees for basing and cleaned the old basing off a tree Lord and gave him the base grey for painting.

Chaos Dwarves will be on hold for a bit. I got an idea for Orruks again, and with the latest FAQ, they are even stronger, so I may HAVE TO go buy a mawkrusha or two ...possibly three .

Thanks Paradigm

Started repainting a tree lord. Still need to drybrush when the wash drys.


I may have dropped a couple hundred dollars today on more Sylvaneth .

Got 2 of the next Kurnoth hunters assembled with swords. 2 more boxes of these guys along with a Warcry Souldrain Forest box (which was 2 of the sets of woods Terrain, some scatter terrain and a double sided map for $100/ or $85 from miniature market) along with some more paints and washes.


While these take a while to assemble, I really like the way they turn out, as oppossed to the Dryads which take forever and look like way too much fiber in my poo.

Took a half day today, office was driving me crazy and all the providers are off this afternoon anyway. Plus I had new things to assemble, base and paint.

Still not totally happy with the big guys sword, but he works for now.

Finished assembling the last of the three sword guys.

Stirland mud is still drying, as it I started also drying on the guys with great weapons.


I think it’s all working really well together.

Thanks guys, chill weekend, lots of time painting.

Sylvaneth are growing quickly.


So I will probably change the weapons at some point, but for now these are done.

TreeLord, Branchwyche and 3 units of Kurnoth Hunters.

Just assembled the tree parts of the Souldrain forest, I have not attached the limbs yet so I can paint up the trunks.

Here’s are the trunks of one set of the wyldwoods, the other set is at the same level of completeness.


Couple more drybrushes and possibly some of the flower tufts to add.

Also got Drycha rebased and covered the old paint scheme with initial layer, no pics of that.

I like the level of detail on those, particularly the mushrooms. On an unrelated note, is that a guitar-playing orc in the background?

It is. It’s a print I found on another forum by Warmill.
https://www.warmill.co.uk/
It’s an alternate Warchanter for AOS Orruks.

Here he is next to actual models from the range.

He’s a bit larger, but he’s also on a base, but since Orruks/Orcs get bigger as they get tougher, I think he fits right in.

There are also Gangster-wizards and a few others that fit the army that I haven’t bought or printed yet, but might once I get back to that army.

Those walking trees are coming along quick and very nicely! They look really great and seem to paint up fast and the good thing is that you can bring some variance in with different browns and greens and still have a cohesive army.

Thanks everyone, really hoping to get some good painting time in this weekend as the wife and youngest are at another weekend long Lacrosse tournament out of town. My son got his drivers license FINALLY, watch out when you are walking on the sidewalk no matter what country you are in.

unfortunately I have another Funeral to attend to at church in the morning which throws off my calendar for the weekend, so we will see. Also the Orruks have begun a nasty chant in my mind...I now want to make a Megaboss on Mawkrusha named Roy Kent "He's Here! He's There! he's every Krumping Where! Roy Kent!!!" (God I love Ted Lasso ). I've been trying to come up with a new paint scheme in my mind for Ironjawz and maybe that is them telling me to paint them like the AFC Richmond Greyhounds .

Sometimes it’s the repetitive work that needs to be done that gets you going.



Lots of basing set up for Dryads....I hate dryads....I don’t like their look...And most importantly I HATE assembling them. Too many tiny pointy bits that don’t feel like they fit together nice . Almost makes me want to go and snap twigs off of bushes and glue them to bases. They’d be preassembled and repainted that way.

Long relaxing day with headaches, so what’s better than painting the things that give you headaches...Right?

FN dryads...


Probably broke 8+ of the 15 off of their bases while painting them, such small attachment points , even tried gluing them back onto the bases with an arm glued to the tree stumps. Still they are brittle as hell.

Just need to add the yellow flower clumps to the bases to bring them all together.



Kurnoth Hunter for scale, also I screwed up and used the wrong base color for the dryads...then I covered them with a second wrong color ....and possibly a third .

Yet another reason to write down your army color schemes that I keep telling myself to do.

In the back of the dryads is my version of Drycha. I’m still not sold on the spirits infesting the trees aspect of the Sylvaneth army....or the bugs. Drycha needs another drybrush or two before completely done, but was good enough to join the photo

I have another Treelord and more Dryads to repaint and rebase, as well as the Underworlds warband of Sylvaneth. I keep thinking of the next project...probably Orruk Ironjawz, but since the Maggotkin book is due out in December and I have a huge amount of them they might be next. I was at Miniaturemarket today and nearly bought 2 Megabosses on Mawkrushers to lead my Orruks, thinking of repainting them in the AFC Richmond Greyhounds colors (I have just finished watching Ted Lasso with my wife and we immediately began rewatching it ). I did manage to walk away with only buying a couple more paints, even having picked up the Mawkrushas and a great unclean one (then putting them down)....multipletimes.

Picking up the oldest daughter from work shortly, then Tylenol PM and sleep.

Good night.

Hope the head is better! The army of bark looks great and too bad about the attachment to the base. It's always frustrating when the minis don't stick on it.

So it's about to happen again . Making good progress on something, Sylvaneth, and then I get a bad idea which starts to develop in my head. This usually spells doom for a project .

Over the years I have not spent too much time delving into the story of AoS, I have no idea about some factions, and have some wrongly developed ideas about others. So the other day I started looking at eventuallu building the Orruk army after Sylvaneth. I should be getting close to 2000 points of Sylvaneth pretty soon with the models I already have, and looking at Orruks I think I can safetly make 2000 points, especially if I add my 3d printed Rogue Idols. That handles Order and Destruction. I have a bunch of Maggotkin, easily 2000points that I can eventually repaint, But I do not have Undead to any real levels. So I started looking at the different factions of Undead...Soulblight Gravelords is new and everyone and their sister is building them. I kind of want to build them also, but I want to go wolf heavy and I do not like Belladomma and the sprue from the cursed city group is $125 , and you need the main character to field that unit, which even without him is like 700+ points, so no . The OBR does not appeal to me...I'll leave it there. The ghosts with big clown Lord Skeletor also does not draw me in, If I was in England with the Hatchette magazine subscription to make building it easier and cheaper, then possibly. The last Death option are the Flesh Eater Courts. I always just thought of them as zombie and ghouls.

...Oh was I wrong . I started watching some videos about them and my fragile little mind is blown . How did I not know that they see themselves as Knights and Aristocricy. Seriously they look at themselves and see themselves as knights on horses charging at their enemies which are all evil/chaos (Including that Sigmar). The height is because they are these huge hulking brutes, not because they are on horseback, but thats not what they see. The Carrion King puts these visions in their heads as he himself sees it all that way because he had once Looooooooooooooooooooong ago been a knight. They see the crumbled castles as beautiful mansions and they do not see the cannibalism that they perform. It is insanely AWESOME.

I was never a fan of Brettonia and I get people wanting them back, but these guys believe that they are the remenants of that society. Complete with Holy Grail and quests. So where the models may be 3 Crypt Horrors charging at the enemy, in their minds it's 3 knights on their steeds in resplendent attire and armor bravely charging the enemy. Who know, the Terror Geists could be their ideas of a knight on a Hippogryph. Zombie Dragons could be a Knight on a pegasus or a Noble Dragon. All the Ghouls are just the men-at-arms bravely holding the line.

Utter psychopaths, but it really gives me more of a feeling of a fun army to play. Plus the Starting costs are cheaper on them than some of the other armies to create, especially if you do a terrorgeist horde. So while I have some Sylvaneth to finish painting, I am afraid that I will shortly be buying some FEC models .
