Again some great progress for Month 3. I'm unfortunately going to be bowing out due to personal reasons and not having the time to continue with my Nurgle. But rest assured I'll be continuing with this for everyone else and the Battletome of your choice prize for the best looking army at the end is still on offer!

Month 4 budget: 100

Month 4 spending:

           $40 for Battletome Ironjaws

           $50 Megaboss

Remaining budget $10. 

Battle toms is not fancy but as a gamer who is new to AOS it is essential. The Warboss on the other hand is a beast cannot wait to have him on my paint station. WIP will be up soon.

Month 4 budget: £50

Month 4 spend: £50 start collecting nurgle

 

The plan is to try and paint these up using mainly washes, trying a technique I wouldn't normally use, have made some progress already, and will hopefully get them done fairly quickly. Naming my war and the 'Unstiched bowel'.

Month 4 Budget: £50 (Missed last two months, so I'm just going to start again)
Month 4 Spend: £32 (They are plastic black orcs, so there is only ten but rebasing costs and all that I'll just say 32)
Remaining Budget: £18

Right, really can't go failing again. Sticking to ironjawz now, and have these ten ready for rebasing. Also in a similar thing with people I've met at GW so all the more reason!

Army - Destruction
Month 4 Budget - 50£
Month 4 Spend - 90£
(Actually I started the project 2 weeks ago so the extra 40£ can be like saved from Month 3)
Remaining Budget -0£

This is my entry for Tales of Sigmar so I am pretty excited as this kind of competition always helps me with speeding up with painting project. And this time it is big. I plan to make a whole Bonesplitterz army, using most of the models from GW (and not only) from 80s till recent plastics. As I want to use it in the games right now I will be adding some other Destruction models probalby to have some army working until I finish pure Bonesplitterz.
I plan to collect a Drakkfoot Warclan, so the theme is going to be Aqshy based, lots of blood, ash and skullz;) Regular Savages and Arrerboyz are going to be the models from 80s-90s (right now I have most from the old metals I could find on eBay) and in case of Arrerboyz I'll need to clone them in finecast (I plan to go for 30 first and then expand even more). All the Morboyz and Maniaks will be the modern plastics, as they look more Big'Uns standing next to the old savages.
The main colors for the clan will be reds so I also decided to pay tribute to the old school painting style and paint all the wooden weapons in ...RED;)
Here goes the first battle line:
10 Savages from the 90s, 1 Savage Big Boss (from Avatars of War), and an extra no-Bonesplitter ForgeWorld Standard Bearer - for the Army Warboss -before I go pure BS.
The cost of the first 12 (most of them from eBay) with bases was ~90£ :
First pic from 2 weeks ago:

By now all of them are basecoated and I have also added and basecoated the Banner bearer. More pictures coming soon.

Army - Destruction

Month 4 Budget: £84.75
Month 4 Spend: £65 Ogre battalion box

Total Spend: £65
Remaining Budget: £19.75

So for month 4 I'm leaving the ironjawz behind, that's a lie I will still be painting them in between painting ogors. I was lucky enough to buy an ogre battalion box set from my local games workshop which was an awesome bargain so in it I got 6 ogres 6 ironguts and 4 leadbelchers now I find that as I have to pay for 6 leadbelchers if I have 4 I think I'm guna try my hand at converting one of the leadbelchers into a butcher which would round of the ogres nicely as that's 980 points for £65, ill update more when I start working on them properly but I cant see myself adding lots more to the ogres except maybe a tyrant and of course some maneaters but that will have to wait until month 5.

And so the Dryads are done. Im not sure about the Wyldwood? Should I add the canopy? It will be a nightmare to transport and I kind of like the way they look now.

Here it is. lucky for me month 4 was a light month from a hobby perspective cause real life got in the way. I did however manage to get my Megaboss painted.20161106_230448.jpg20161106_230457.jpg20161106_230503.jpg

 

His base remains unfinished as I am waiting to finish my army. I am ordering tufts from shadows edge miniatures and I only want to pay shipping from the  UK once. Also I used blood for the blood God for the first time. Love the effect but went a little overboard. I will be getting the battle force so I will get another shot another making another boss  he was a pleasure to paint.
