    Perhaps a corpse grey? Looking good though!

    AoS 2 - Idoneth Deepkin Discussion

    I'm using the shattered dominion bases which happen to have peg-holes underneath, so rather than stick the curved stems on top of the shattered dominion detail I've decided to go with these peg stems and drill up into the eels after snipping off the nub underneath: https://www.games-workshop.com/en-IE/Citadel-Flying-Stems-with-60mm-Flying-Bases An expensive extra but what else is new? Having said that I did also try sticking the flying stems to the eels as provided (i.e. the claw and the nub, using plastic glue) and in fairness they do seem to hold well enough - after some precarious balancing until dry, mind.

    Tips for painting skin?

    A single base colour with one or more washes can give a really good tabletop effect (without blending issues) if you're not going for a higher standard than that, a common choice being simply corax white primer with thinned (so it settles in the recesses better) reikland fleshshade on top. If you'd rather something sallower for your dwarfs there should be plenty of simple variations on that approach that get you there, e.g. three or four coats of fleshshade on white instead of just one can really darken things down. I've recently taken to trying things out on old test models before settling on a scheme and it's helped a lot with this stuff, really quick to do when you don't care about neatness and you find yourself much freer to experiment when there's no pressure to get it right first time!

    AoS 2 - Idoneth Deepkin Discussion

    Hi all, looking to finish off my 2k Deepkin army. Before I splash (...! 😀) the cash any thoughts on these options? My goals for this force are variety, fun to play with and against, low model count (painted asap), middling power level (neither fully optimised nor weaksauce). Already have (1320 pts): Akhelian King (general) Tidecaster 10 Thralls 6 Morsarr Guard Allopex Leviadon Option 1 - balanced? (+620 pts): Soulscryer 10 Reavers 6 Ishlaen Guard Akhelian Corps Option 2 - harder hitting? (+680 pts): Eidolon of the Storm 6 Ishlaen Guard Option 3 - fewer eels? (+640/680 pts): Eidolon of the Sea/Storm 3 Ishlaen Guard Akhelian Corps Option 1 is my original plan but when I saw I could drop a Soulscryer, 10 Reavers and the Akhelian Corps for a Storm Eidolon that seemed like a good trade. And then dropping a further 3 Ishlaen to bring the Akhelian Corps back in, have the option of Storm->Sea Eidolon and make it less eel-heavy is tempting, but perhaps comes in at too low a model count? Set me straight fish-friends! 🐟👍

    Wow, compared to that Wood Elf they really are huge! D'ya think maybe Sigmar's dark secret is that each suit of Stormcast armour is really a tiny mech with the feet of each 'umie inside only reaching down as far as the knees? 😀 Great work!

    Late pledge alert! Having just abandoned Tzeentch (has Tzeentch abandoned me I wonder...? 🙂) I've decided to drive hard towards table-ready Deepkin instead, keeping things as quick and simple as possible by relying on coloured primer, basecoats and washes for the most part. Very happy with this test model for the time put in (just basecoats plus an all-over Coelia Greenshade wash on everything except the skin which got Nihilakh Oxide, both thinned with Lahmian, base is equally simple), let's see where I am in a couple of weeks!

    That purple sun is incredible! 😲👍
  8. So just to make sure I have this right, it appears to be the case that all GW brushes (most other companies too of course but GW's where I've been buying up to now) use hair from a member of the weasel family? 😕 Thanks in advance!

    The Painting Contract - June 2018

    Thanks very much man, I worked quite hard on them and am definitely happy with how they turned out. Part of the deterrent is that up next in the plan was 10 converted female acolytes to join them for a bit of gender balance which feels a bit daunting now, so I've been looking at a 37-model strong 2000pt. Deepkin list which is really quite tempting, could do them to basic tabletop standard comparatively quickly then come back to this lot. I'm not down and out anyway, that's for sure, thanks for the encouragement and suggestions! 👍

    The Painting Contract - June 2018

    Late update from me, even ignoring that these were supposed to be done for the May contract! 😄 Ah well. These were fun and a good challenge but I think I'm done with Tzeentch for now TBH - the models are just too detailed for my painting speed (6-7 weeks for 80 effing points! 😥), and the new summoning rules mean an indeterminate amount of extra models are needed... so my July pledge is now to regroup and return with a less ambitious painting project.

    Love the terracotta/turquoise (if those are the right things to call them) combo, what paints did you use? Looking for ideas for Deepkin critters at the moment, might attempt something similar. 🙂 Hope the finger's on the mend!

    The weapon profile should really say "launcher" then, rather than "launchers"... Anyway, 12 shots is more like it. 🙂

    Thanks man, I missed that detail. RAW I'd say you're right, but hopefully they'll errata it the other way.

    Yep turn 3 is late alright, especially with heroes dying off. At least with horrors it can be 4 fate points plus 6 horror points or whatever which potentially gets 'em in earlier. I don't see summoning being massively OP at all in practice. Feels a lot more like hard work than free stuff!
