Had a thought this weekend - with everyone messing around with Age of Sigmar, might it be fun if we posted what projects we are currently working on? With luck it may get some ideas passed about, and you might just get that last bit of encouragement it takes to get a model finished!

Bonus points if you back up your reports with photos of work in progress and the finished articles!

To kick off...

On the painting table I currently have a clutch of Bloodbound characters - the Aspiring Deathbringer, the alternate (with shield) Exalted Deathbringer, Slaughterpriest, Skullgrinder, Miss Valkia and Skarr Bloodwrath. The idea here is that I can put the Bloodbound to bed and get cracking with other forces. Aside from the Skarbrand, Skullreapers, Wrathmongers and Mighty Skullcrushers that have not been done yet...

Also got Festus half done, along with a couple of other Rotbringers that have only been undercoated.

Next stage - sort out the aforementioned Skullreapers and Wrathmongers, do another unit of Plaguebearers and Bloodletters (really quick and easy to do, will be the last lesser daemons I need for a while), and carry on with the long-running project, the Chaos Dreadhold. Managed to put together the gate and a few walls over the weekend;



So, what is everyone else up to?

Is there a codex out for vampires yet? I was thinking about updating my old army for the game, but need a codex before I start and can see the lists to build an army.

Couldn't really see anything on the GW that looked like the right book.

@MongooseMatt, really nice force!

Looking forward to seeing what you do with that dreadhold wall.

@Fenrir, it would have been better to create a topic for that question rather than put it on a unrelated one.

Carrying on, Age of Sigmar doesn't use codexes anymore but allows free downloads for your armies.

As for me, I've already talked about my campaign map so I posted links to my Bretonnian army (still a WIP) where I'm currently making a knight for each realm and a link to my army's backstory on how it came to AoS. (Caution: lots of reading)

My painting focus has shifted to getting my 40k campaign army ready. Around spring I will be painting up the chaos fortress. I have the whole thing minus three towers but I'm fine with that i suspect it will take me all spring to conclude.

How's that second mortgage coming along, mate?

Seriously, it's looking good so far. Can't wait to see it painted up. Say what you want about the Sigmarines but the new terrain GW has put out for AoS has been really good.

I myself am painting up some Warriors of Chaos. I have about 48 Warriors, ~16 Mauraders, 20 Chaos Hounds, 5 Knights, 6 Skullcrushers, a Hellcannon, a Chaos Lord and a Sorceror in need of paint. It's going to be a looooong autumn.

Thought for the day: Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
13th Legion: 3000
Bolt Action Soviets: ~2000 pts
The Empire : ~60-70 models.
WMH CoC: 40 points (30 fully painted!)

Nice thread I like the idea

I have been rebasing my stuff and adding some bits to my goblins.
This weekend I finished a count as doomdiver...



Now i need to come up with some ideas for the rock lobba and spear chukkas.

On the table I have a bully to finish up.

I have lots of projects on the go! (I was going to start 40k AdMech but Age of Sigmar came along and threw that all out the window!)

Anyway, a quick rundown of the projects on the go:

Project 1 - Death army - here are the painted troops right now:




On the painting table:
- Cairn Wraith
- Hexwraiths

My Death army picture was number 1 in the Games Workshop flickr pool a week ago:



Project 2 - Re-basing my Empire army (this was my 8th edition army)



Re-basing is a loveless task! I still have 10 Swordsmen, 5 Outriders and a cannon to rebase...

Project 3 - Duardin! Having fun finally being able to play with my old BFSP models.



Now all these projects are big, so in the meantime I am combing all the models into a single force called "Siegfried's Desperados":



And if you would like to find more out about this force, I made my own Battletome, which you can find here.

It's a great time to be in the hobby

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

Any chance you guys will show some battle report pictures of your amazing armies when you two meet on the battlefield? I think we'd all really appreciate it.

I'm currently painting up my Empire Army for Armies on Parade and a local Escalation League stating early November. I am also building a display board for my brother and myself. My brother is entering his Bloodbound and we are doing two separate display boards that join up into one big display. Empire are defending their fort from the Bloodbound who are pouring out of a Realm Gate. Unfortunately no pics as they are on my phone.

To date I have painted:
2 Generals (Sword and Shield)
20 Swordsman (Full Command)
20 handunners (Full Command)
8 Greatswords (Full Command)
1 Wizard (Jade)
1 Priest
1 Cannon and Crew

Currently on the painting table (to be completed by the 24th):
1 General (Standard bearer)
4 Wizards (Bright, Amethyst, Heavens, Misc)
13 Greatswords
2 2x2 display boards
1 Castle (Gatehouse and 2 towers)
1 Realm Gate

Mostly just trying to polish off my Stormcast Eternals from the starter set, though I did cave and buy 2 more boxes of Liberators. One box of which has them all with dual wield hammers. Not sure where to go with the other box. Suggestions? I'm thinking dual wield sword and parry blades.My painting has recently been derailed by a rather large Imperial Knight Warden kit, stomping its way to my hobby table for my birthday.

Here is my kinda current project. I went deep when AoS came out (quiting all gw 3 years prior)

Last remaining thing to paint is 5 Paladin Protectors. My Dropzone commander kind of slipped in though and took over last week.

I also have a mass amount of khorne that is 99% bare (so many things to paint..)

And my third (god help me last) AoS project is ForestSpirit Warhost but with a twist. I use the AzyrComp ruleset for armies so I build my forces off that. It will be a mix of spirits, mostly bad. All the Dryads, treemen, and banshees, and vampire count spirit hosts. Theme is haunted woods that want vengeance. Possibly might have wood elves, but they will be painted like ghosts

I picked up two boxes and went dual hammers and dual blades too - I want to add the blade/shield combo at some point, but with two units (from the starter set) with shields, the dual weapons seemed to be the way to go.

Your Stormcast look amazing, but I really want to say the Haunted Forest idea is simply EPIC. I would love to see that!!

This weekend I'm actually working on the first draft primer for the Age of Sigmar event for NOVA 2016.

We got some great feedback from the last year's attendees and looking to make things even better with a multi-game nightly narrative campaign where two forces will fight for control of the realms, and a 3 game, one day tournament.

I am also working on getting a blog setup to finally get some battle reports posted, so if you have any particular mission requests you'd like to see played out by all means let me know!

Slay the Beast? Seems like a pretty interesting one to me, although it almost feels like two different scenarios smashed together.

“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.”
