I started working on my Ironjawz about 9 months ago. Got some done on the army but as always life gets in the was. So it’s now 2018 and I want to get at least the 2000 point list finished. I don’t play a lot of 2000 point games but I would like to have the option. I prefer AOS Skrimish right now just for the fact that the games takes 30-45 minutes. So I wanted to show the progress of my Skrimish Warband. My game group is starting off with 30 renown. I’m currently trying to get everything table top ready and the after to go back and pick out more details. My color scheme is light gray, dark gray and orange. I’m going to name the Warband Gorrukz Dragonz. Got the idea and the color from Andrew Wiggin’s Dragon Army from Ender’s Game. My starting warband consists of a Warchanter, Brute with Klaw and Smasha, and a Brute with Gore-choppa. So that’s my first 30 points and will have more soon to come. Our next point limit is 50 renown, then 70 and finally 100 renown. But without further ado. Here are some pictures of my 30 point Warband.

Got at ‘Ardboy my table top ready today. Got a bunch primed and base coated but nowhere close to being finished. Was thinking to do what I did today and just work on one at a time till finished. I’m thinking for my next 20 points I will do a Gor-grunta, another Brute and a Ardboy. That would put me at exactly 50 points.

50 points almost table top ready. I’ve had some good luck so far with my Warband. Went up against 2 different Bloodbound Warband. One was a Slaughterpriest with 2 Blood Warriors and 2 Reavers. Did really well. The main reason I think I wan that fight was the Slaughterpriest could not pull off Blood Boil. If that happened it would have gone a lot different I think. The second fight was with a Bloodstoker and 14 Reavers. Lots of models but my Brutes and Warchanter made some awesome saves to wounds when the took any. But won both matches so I was pretty stoked about it. But here is the list for my 50 point Warband. We will be using those next month. Almost have them ready. Go some more detail work to do on the Gore-gruntaand ‘Ardboy but they are at least ready for the table.

Nice job there! Also nice to see someone else who actually enjoys AOS (My LFGG has way too many naysayers)!

Are the bases done with the Citadel technical, or is it something else?

I really like to be the bad guy, unless i'm a terrible good guy!

Thanks LtChrispy.

I was a naysayer back in the day. Hated Warhammer Fantasy. Was all about 40k and nothin else. But finally gave it a chance. The local shop owner was so sure I would like AOS that he sold me the starter for half price. Man was he right. I love the rule layout the turn sequence. Easy to pick up as well.

And yes I used Agrellan Earth. I found you have to put it on a little thick if you want a larger earth crackle. I prime it again after. Also learned if you don’t it tends to break off. So then Baneblade Brown is a really close match to the original color wash with sepia and then dry brush with bone.

Thanks CK. I want to get them table top and then take some more time on them later. Clean up a few edges and highlights. I really like the orange on the orruks. What’s kinda cool are your grotz also use the orange. If you have any tips with orange please let me know. Your truck and track conversions like the rest of the army are outstanding. The grab and smash is awesome for taking out Heros.

I'd love to help you out with the orange, but GW discontinued macharius solar orange . If I get my new recipe sorted out, I'll let you know!

One tip that still applies: use a fleshy colour for highlights, that makes it less yellowish.

Got some work done on my warboss today. Not nearly finished but coming along quite nicely. It took me 3 time to get the base how I wanted it. Kept messing it up with to cork. Hoping to have it completed by the end of the week. I keep getting distracted with other thing I find in my collection of bits. My son who is 5 likes the Stormcast Eternals. I have all the ones from the starter set so I put them all together today. Got one primed and base coated. He is a huge transformers fan and told me I had to paint the like Optimus Prime. I did a test model last year but never went any further with it. I changed it up a little bit but not much. Just did away with the white and and used silver instead. As you can see I the pic it’s on the citadel model holder. Was a skeptic at first but the local game shop let me use theirs and I love it. And for $8 not a bad deal. Also found a crypt haunter in by many boxes of bits I didn’t realize I had. So I’m gonna play around with him just for fun. I’ll get a pic of that up once I’m done with it. Thanks again ever.

Not my orruks but did some more work on the Stormcast Eternal and the Crypt Horror. Need to get back to my Orruks but wanted to pint some other colors to break the monotony. And I think it work. Had a a lot of fun with these so far. Not done yet but will be soon and then back to the orruks.

What’s funny about him is if we are painting the models it’s cool. But when I start to assemble then he always tells me I’m a nerd. I respond with you paint them. And he replies painting cool but your still a nerd dad. He has a few of my old chaos sm that he painted up. There not great but he is 5 and starting with the hobbit about 16 years before I picked it up. He does like playing Shadespire. Getting kind of good at it as well. We just don’t use the cards.

Ok back to the Orrukz. Working on a new group of Brutez. This will be the third group of 5. And with each one I’ve done a little more converting. With this one I am giving a shot with some green stuff work. My goal with this one is to scrap most of the upper armor and give them more of a barbaric look. There is a lot of detail that gets hidden under the armor plates. I like how it’s going so far. Hoping to have them primed and base coated today if time allows.

Thanks CK.

Got some work done on some ‘Ard Boyz. The plan is 10 of each. Shield, 2 hander, and 2 weapons. 30 in total. Also planes on 2 banners and a drummer. It’s coming along slowly but I think once the whole army is done it will look nice on the table top. But a full account of what I have.

Mawchrusha
Warboss
Shaman
Warchanta

15 Brutes
6 Gor-Gruntaz
35 ‘Ard Boyz

That’s everything I have so far. Really not a lot of options for Ironjawz. But they are fun to paint and are a great looking line of models. But maybe we will see something new this year. One can only hope.

Thanks again CK.

I’ll have to get a picture of the whole army. One with everything I have and then one with just what is painted. I’ve got a good amount painted so far. Just haven’t posted pics of everything on this blog. Need to finish up a lot of detail work on some stuff but for the most part it’s table top ready. I started working my ironjawz back at the end of may. I’m hopping to have them all table top ready by may. I think I should be able to. I have mawcrusha to start. And finish the last 5 brutez. 2 got-grunt as that need finished and about 25 or so ‘Ard Boyz. And hopefully by then the new Ork 40k rule book will be out. Need to get Da Brazen Klawz back out and dust em off. Got some ideas for some new conversions for them as well just have to get these done first.

For your Transformers fan son, you may want to wait a few years before you let him watch the movie. Seeing one of his heroes die is bound to traumatize him if he's too young.

DS funny thing about that. He has seen the a few of the Michael Bay movies. But he thinks those are crap. He has been watching G1 for about 2 years now and loves the 1986 movie. One of his favorite songs is “The Touch” by Stan Bush. I think I cried more when Optimus Prime died when I was 7. He was sad about it but his 2 favorites are Sideswipe and Bumblebee. I still say the 1986 is still better than anything Michael Bay has done so far.

I’ve been collecting transformers for him for about 3 years now. I figure when he gets old enough I will give them to him for his birthday. Got most the dinobots and all the main characters from the 1986 move. Ultra Magnus, RC, Spriger, Kup, Blurr and Hot Rod. Even got him Rodimus Prime. I think he will be very happy with it.
