    Dracothian Guard
  1. I'd look at one of the Stormcast Dracothian Guard Desolators riders, with maybe some Nightlord Space Marine shoulder pads. That'll give you big and bulky with ease If you'll consider non-GW, try this one and work off some of the more Space-Marine like features http://zealotminiatures.com/zealot-shop/#!/KoL-Dark-Knight/p/34168092/category=8326656
  2. Honestly, that Elf is ambitious for a 6 year old. Starter set Stormcast are definitely a good option, those flat surfaces with detail that comes out with a wash is a definite confidence booster. My advice, pick up a starter paint set, and a pack of £10 Stormcast.
  3. I'd love a deluxe 3D board, Hexagons of varying height, but slowly increasing in height towards the centre. Something resembling either basalt or clear crystal.
  4. SoH contains a better framework for ongoing campaigning, it gives a better feel for what occurs between adventures, and allows you to build a more traditional RPG experience.
  5. https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/04/08/vortex-and-slaughter-the-beasts-are-back/ Awesome news for Khorne and Tzeentch generals, we can now include Slaughter Beasts and Vortex Beasts in our armies without sacrificing our alleigaince boni
  6. The ruins are seperate to the plants, you can build it without actually using those parts
  7. Not convinced it'd work leaving the Eldar symbols in. You're better off making some Lustrian stepped pyramids.
  8. Definitely my best kitbash yet. Orruk Megaboss with Hammer and Boss Klaw (ish!)
  9. I've been involved in GW products since the age of 10, with my first exposure being Heroquest, and a couple of White Dwarf magazines. Ironically, due to parental mishap, I also got started in RPG's at the same time due to asking for Advanced Heroquest one Christmas, and recieving the D&D boxed set. Like many players, there's been times when I've put the hobby down and moved onto other past times, but it's something I keep coming back to. No other hobby offers a mix of creative, and social aspects, whilst still also allowing for time alone, something ideal for someone who has difficult relating to people. One area where I differ from many of the old guard, is I'm not sold on the idea that the rules or experiences were better in the past, 2nd Edition 40k was a nightmare to play with any real number of models, and however nostalgic I might get for my first Space Wolves, or plastic Ork bowmen, the quality now is a huge improvement. Even better, we're seeing vastly improved support for new players, and the GW staff are far less sales orientated. Still remember my 13th birthday, taking my money in and being convinced by a staff member that since they had a sale on, I should spend all £80 because it gave me £120 "worth" of miniatures, resulting in me buying a load of metal Ork minaitures that I struggled to put together.
  10. Metal Buscuit tins are an option, leave them open for the taller miniatures
  11. I like this for appeal, lotsa boyz running across the field, the 'Ard Boyz follow Grimgor to stack the bonuses (up to something like 2+ re-rolling 1's and wounding on 3+) Spear Chukka might work better as a War Dokk Allegiance: Destruction Leaders Wurrgog Prophet (140) Orruk Megaboss (140) Orruk Warchanter (80) Grimgor Ironhide (140) - General Battleline 20 x Savage Orruks (200) 20 x Savage Orruks (200) 20 x Savage Orruks (200) 20 x Orruk Ardboys (360) 3 x Orruk Gore Gruntas (180) 3 x Orruk Gore Gruntas (180) War Machines Grot Spear Chukka (120) Battalions Ironfist (60) Total: 2000/2000
  12. Geez and I thought it was bad chucking an Idol of Gork into a 1000 point army....
  13. Yup, pretty much my suggestion but a little more limited to specific units
  14. The Fire one would work well as a Wingless Bloodthirster, and model on additional flame effects using Flamers of Tzeentch
  15. The usual helpful materials are cork, balsawood, left over sprue and a couple of types of cat litter (usually far cheaper than basing gravel) With those you can create a lot of varied surface textures and heights on which you can paint the colours to give the effect you want.
