On the perfumed wind

I do think that scrollbuilder.com has really given me back a lot of that casual list building/thinking-about-the-game time that I enjoyed in 8th (and prior editions).

“It was in lands of the Chi-An where she finally ran him to ground. There she kissed him deeply as he lay dying, and so stole from him his last, agonized breath.

On a delicate chain at her throat, she keeps it with her to this day.”

Spoiler:

Magnetising Liberators. Just because I can and don't feel like setting with just one option. Though hammers seem to be better than swords. Unless 2+/4+ is better than 3+/3+ while fighting multi wound creatures.

Going to paint these as Astral Templars later on.

Though I have to say I dislike this new model design in general. I mean, knife A has to be slotted on body A and will not fit on body B. :|

They are nearasdammit the same (3+/3+ has a slight edge, but it is tiny for most Liberator unit sizes) - sword or hammers really comes down to personal preference rather than target

Say you have a unit of 30 Liberators (because this is how large you have to get before the difference starts coming through), they rush in against Nagash and, just supposing they all get to fight, dish out 60 attacks.

With swords (2+/4+), 50 hit and, of those, half will Wound - so, 25 saves needed.

With hammers (3+/3+), 40 hit, and two thirds will wound - so, 26 saves-ish, could round up to 27.

And that is with _30_ Liberators, remember

There is only a real difference between swords and hammers if you start applying re-rolls, and then it depends on whether you re-roll hits or wounds... Basically, go with what you like best.

Thanks for math-hammering that out
I guess I'll go with the swords. To me they look so much better than hammers. Or, maybe, put those hammers on left hands just for "omg, that looks so kewl" thing.

I've decided to start my first AoS mini! I followed Painting Buddhas tutorial video and following Ben is just great, even if you feel super deriative. I like it so far, especially since it's only my sixth mini this year after I don't know how many years of not-painting. Wait, I finished a half-done mini last year! Wooohoo, take THAT, backlog Two of those minis wre 1:72 Vikings, but hey. Painting individual blood trails from a gouged eye in 1:72 takes al ot of time, too. Still struggling with the loaded brush, but I'm starting to think that the paper on my wet pallette is crap and needs to be replaced every day to stop it from getting its coating into the paint, that might be the reason why brush loading only works when I start with a new mini. After switching it mid-painting yesterday it it began working again.


Calves are proving troublesome, sadly, despite me loving the knee which is also round and should be the same difficulty to paint?! The thigh is finished, nor are the bolts of lightning on his shoulder pad. I kept painting but I literally missed my bus because of it yesterday and *still* didn't finish that second shoulder pad









I'm having trouble with the new imgur design, I can't find a resize option anymore, so you'll have to excuse badly lit cellphone pictures scaled with paint, which makes them kinda gritty and washed out looking. So many word to say "be gentle, please"

PS: Since you can't mix NMM with normal metals I'll have to paint some of my Sigmarines in NMM and some in regular gold. Good thing then that I have a second dracoth rider and starter Prosecutors to turn into flying Spartans, eh. But then I'd like to have the Spartarines in NMM, so I might have to cut of his halo and give him a horsehair crest. Don't you just love good planining before painting, huh?

Looking for a Skaven Doomwheel banner to repair my Nurgle knights.

Stockholm

Trying to complete some things I've left unfinished for way to long, such as my old grumlok orc. Also trying to finish my scratch build of a giant based on the witcher 3 ice giant. Can't decide on what he's gonna hold in his left hand though.
Sorry for the crappy pic, it was just something I took fast.

I hope to be starting on my nurgle daemons soon. Assuming I can put my infinity stuff aside.

Sold off my mortal nurgle to get more daemons. Will hopefully be adding some FW soon

I like that scratchbuilt giant. Little bit rough, but the head and upper shoulders look great.

I'm currently painting up a unit of 30 Dwarf Warriors for my Duardin.

I just finished painting my Stormcast Eternal army. My goal was to get a fully army table top ready using efficient batch painting techniques and as few colors as possible. Mission accomplished!

Your empire look great Nerm! Do you have any close-ups?

@Cowboys7y13 & Bottle & MongooseMatt, those models are amazing! I wish I had a fraction of that painting skill.

@Nerm86, I agree with Bottle, we need close-ups of your valiant soldiers.

As for myself, I'm in the Round Table's painting contest and I'm entering a sketch for it to go with the theme of Bretonnia in a new age.

Bretonnians in the realm of life before the coming of chaos.

No close ups of the Empire unfortunately, but plenty of Khorne! Unfortunately these were hurried photos taken on my phone but you still get the idea.

I was really happy with out the Realm Gate come out, I fear I wont be able to replicate it on its counterpart.

Yeah the realm gate looks fantastic, especially the warp trails. In fact your whole display board is epic. How did you do in Armies on Parade?

My latest update is more rebasing of my old 8th Edition models:





My regular army that I take to the store is now fully painted! Feels good man :-)

That looks stunning Bottle! Nice work. Quite liking the little bit of parchment paper on the cannon with the twin-tailed comet on

The Outriders are looking pretty great too- the highlighting on the horses is nicely done
