Really not getting much painting done this week, but I did manage to pop this one out (not that it took a great deal of work!) - a Beastman's Herdstone!



Now I just have to do some beastmen to dance around it. And a Warscroll, I suppose...

As for playing Age of Sigmar, will be heading up to Nottingham tomorrow to try out their Doubles event. I'll see if I can do a report on Monday...

Matt that looks AWESOME!

Please share your warscroll for it too.

And how did you make? From mystical styrofoam?

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

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


Thanks! Did you notice it only says "Sigma"? Haha, I should be less lazy and go and change that!

Finished off my Harbinger of Decay, to give the Rotbringers a(nother) leader!





Next up, the Glottkin, a Great Unclean One and a Maggoth Lord!

Not technically a project update, but if anyone can get to Swindon very early, it looks like we have a space free in the car for the Rotwater Blight event at GW HQ on Jan 9-10...

Wondering Why the Emperor Left




Oklahoma City

FANTASTIC herdstone and Harbinger of Decay! I used the Cygors boulder as my Herdstone. It pales in comparision!

My friend got the beginner set so I took the Khorne guys and added some Chaos warriors, bloodletters, and skullcrushers.
I bought ten Blightkings, Festus, Morbidex Twiceborn, and converted some Chaos warriors with extra Blightkings parts.

I dont have any pictures of those yet but I am also working on a Tzeentch themed army. I repainted some beastmen and added Vilitch and six Screamers so far. I do have a pic of that. Lets see here...

Heres one more close up. I was planning on repainting all my beastmen to fill out the ranks of the 4 Chaos Gods but with the synergy issues dont think this will work out on the table. Oh well, they look cooler painted this way!

In the mean time, I see you a Maggoth Lord, and raise you a Great Unclean One!

Busy, busy, busy! Got a Maggoth Lord done this weekend;



Also got a very special something done as well, but need to take photos of that - piccies and report tomorrow!

Also surprised myself by also putting together six Plague Drones (not a fun job, as they are all legs and wings, but the painting should be easier), as well as making a very credible start on the Chaos Warriors and Lord of the Tzeentch Bleak Horde. Figure i can get those done this week/maybe next.

I don't do AOS, but I'm rebuilding my WHFB Vampire counts army. Been buying up mostly metals on ebay lately and stripping them down to make a truly massive unead horde. So far I have:

6 bases metal spirit hosts
60 metal ghouls
60 plastic skeletons
3 Vampire lordes on horses (metal)
2 metal wraiths
31 old dire wolves
40 plastic zombies
70 metal grave guard
3 metal necromancers
89 metal armored skeletons
1 metal winged nightmare
1 metal zombie dragon
6 bases of metal bat swarms
9 metal blood knights
30 cursed metal cursed company
2 metal varghulfs
2 metal banshees
4 metal wights
9 metal fell bats
20 plastic black knights
1 metal Heinrich Kemmler
1 metal vampire standard
1 metal Vlad Von Carstein
1 metal wight lord standard.

I reeeeealy like metals, as I'm sure you can tell. I'm hoping to get this whole force assembled, based, primed, and painted in the next year. Wish me luck!

How do you find the time to do all that painting, MongooseMatt? Are you a machine? You'd tell us if you were a machine, right? You don't want to... you know... kill all humans, do you?

Heh

There is a little trick to it. I like watching TV after work as much as the next guy - however, I find it very difficult to just sit there and veg out. Always want to do something with my hands.

Enter painting!

Give me a DVD box set or a new release on Netflix, and I'll crank out an entire army The recent Nurgle models were powered by The Following and The Last Kingdom...

The only real distraction is the xBox, but I seem to play that less these days. The key, I think, is to occupy your mind. If you can do that, you can paint for hours.

There's my problem. I don't watch enough TV - and the TV shows I do watch are filled with gratuitous, excessive, and sometimes obscene nudity that I wouldn't want to miss any of by dividing my attention. You know the shows I'm talking about.

I will post some progress pics when I get home, but I cannot for the life of me match up the Astral Templars paint scheme.



I used Rhinox Hide mixed with Xereus Purple as a basecoat, but there is no single color that will accurately create those highlights as seen in the studio scheme.

I tried lightening up the basecoat mix with some Genestealer Purple, but it was not enough to get it to stand out and was too subtle. I then mixed straight Genestealer with Xerus Purple, but the result wound up being more pink than the studio highlight.

Moreover even a straight black wash with Nuln oil is barely detectable on the model.

Granted I did this all on a test model. I'm leaning close to just scrapping the idea of Astral Templars and maybe going with Celestial Warbringers with or without the upgrade kits:

I finally settled on a scheme I like for my Stormcast. It's basically ripping off the Tampa Bay Lightning colours. So I'm repainting my Stormcast while also bolstering Chaos.

Finished Plague Monks, some Plaguebearers, Liberators and Retributors recently. Just got in the mail some more Plaguebearers and a Lord of Plagues. Can say for sure I'm painting more than ever with AoS. It encourages me to buy what I like. Even one unit from any faction can work in my armies. I'm thinking of throwing some Beastmen into my Chaos mix next, but also want Spider Riders, Ogres... There's too much. I found what used to happen with me is I'd survive a couple units into an army and just not have the will to finish 2,000 points. With this system I can dance around wherever my inspiration takes me.

@Mongoose Matt: Love that lit Skull Keep!

@FeydRautha: Is that first one yours or studio?

“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.”

@mongoose matt

Your creations are just insane!

I feel soo far behind as I haven't even assembled my Dreadhold pieces but your lighting certainly gives me some ideas

I do have the my Celestial Vindicator Thunderstrike brotherhood completed though--

There does not seem to be any official painting guides for these guys...

I have been messing around with a deep purple Manticore of late. For the really deep base, perhaps try Naggaroth Night with Druchii Violet shading. As for the highlighting... I might start looking at the Lilac they do to begin with...

The shading you have done, particularly on the Liberator's shields and Lord-Celestant's cloak is, well, masterful!

In other news, I have a game set up for tomorrow (will do a report!), finishing the Brimstone Peninsula campaign (Battleplan: The Ritual). Just wanted to show off the table we will be using

I've always found the cotton smoke/fire terrain very striking (and very easy to make). The table is very much in tone with the brimstone as I imagine it - dark from smoke clouds and the storm of sigmar, fires and barren ruins everywhere - perfect.
