  1. The Rumour Thread

    The armor doesn't go away if they are taken alive At least, that's how I've been justifying it with the trophies.
  2. The Legions of Morximinus Thrash

    Got the base coats down last night (except the Orc skin) and highlighted the reds. Next up are washes.
  3. The Legions of Morximinus Thrash

    Thanks! I think the ears helped out a lot more than I initially thought they would. Looking at the sculpts, it seems like they went for a blending of boars and rhinoceroses, which didn't look all that good to me. I hated the models when they were released. I even trimmed the under hair as it didn't look all that right to me.
  4. The Legions of Morximinus Thrash

    Ok, so I ended up working quite a bit more since the last post. On Black Friday I bought myself the Start Collecting box primarily for the Gore-gruntas. Originally I had planned to do them like a Scholae Palatinate/Palorkinate unit, which in my head would look a lot like the Brutes above. However, why not take it further and take on the Cataphract or Clebinarii look of the late Roman period? So, as a result, the pigs got barding and the only Orrukish skin showing are the hands. I did a video on how I sculpt the lamellar/ scale mail as well: My YouTube video I also leg swapped 2 of the pigs. In addition, I started on a Ballista and took some proper photos of the Brutes, Thrash, and Senator.

    Oh, the Santaur Claus. Some people hate them, some find them oddly endearing.

    Group shots without the gladiators. Revisions to Bash a has caused them to be delayed in their painting. I bought a bunch of plastic card to make either a ballista/scorpion, but a lot of Christmas projects may delay that production (pic of examples from last year below).
  7. The Legions of Morximinus Thrash

    Think I've finished with knocking together my Ironskull's Boyz, though I am not 100% committed to how Basha looks. I may have to change the weapons to the skull like maces in the gladiator scene in Rome. I just need to check my bits box.
  8. The Legions of Morximinus Thrash

    Thanks Chris! Twitter is @theTyromancer. As a whole, I wanted to take something on that was to the same detail as your army, but using David Soper's skin scheme to the best of my ability. Every model would be modified in some fashion, which this theme forces me to do as each Orruk will undergo Romanification if they are an Ironjawz unit. The warchanter's face will likely be the best as he was the first and I got to experiment until I found something that worked. Everything to this point has been trying to copy the process as I am one of those fools who does not write down recipes. But I am ok with that. As for the Brutes' backs, going full chain on all the combat troops was a must for me. I remember hearing, possibly on TBS, that it was an area that a lot of people had skipped, so therefore I specifically wanted to make it an area that received detail. I had originally wanted the chainmail to be worn and have holes, but the Brutes are the elites and it felt silly to not have them in top form, gear-wise. Thanks! Steam says I've spent nearly 20 full days (479hrs) on the 3 versions of Rome Total War that I have installed there. To be fair, I have it on while hobbying, since it is a turn-based game and I can start/stop as needed. I pretty only play Total War games now for this reason. Everything else is a time sink that takes away from hobby time. Elder Scrolls had their empire which looked Roman, but I don't know enough about the setting to speak to that. Funny you mention Guilliman, he was the specific model I was going for with the Megaboss. The pose, the base where he can be removed, all of that was inspired by the FW model.
  9. The Legions of Morximinus Thrash

    So I changed the tunics to red and they look a lot better and inline with the rest on the army so far. I've nearly finished the paint job on the weirdnob and have settled in calling him the Weidnob Senator. His actual name is still to be determined. I've also picked up the Shadespire crew and will be converting them up like gladiators. In Skirmish and standard AoS, I will just use them as regular 'Ardboyz until i get more of the normal models.
  10. Order Draconis Post GHB 2017

    @Blish well, if I find, if you don't like just parts of the model, kitbash or proxy. Like using Dragon Blades heads on the model (but cutting out the necks on the DB) or painting Black Guard similarly to your Dragon Blades, and letting your opponent know which models they represent.
  11. Order Draconis Post GHB 2017

    I tend to side on having more dragons or behemoths. Dropping 1 set of the dragon blades and a battalion gets you close to having enough for another dragonlord, which has more wounds and a better save than the blades. I've had to learn not to send everything forward on the charge as it usually ends up going poorly for me unless I can get the key pieces of the enemy army removed, like the blood secrator. Adding in a frostheart instead of the other dragonlord could also be beneficial and seems popular. So far as the Shadow Warriors go, you may think about Phoenix Guard. They don't have the extra movement or shooting, but they will stay put based on their saves/ignoring of mortal wounds. Saves you 40pts as well.
  12. The Legions of Morximinus Thrash

    It's been a while since I last worked on the Legion. I had been focusing on my AoP board, but now that is done, I can return to the Orruks. The Praetorrukian Guard are finally getting paint as I am also using purple on some of my Aelf models. I need to include red on them somewhere, so they are either going to get red capes or I will likely repaint their tunics from purple to red. C&C welcome on these. Only really the skin is done at the moment. Everything else needs highlights or glazes. On a side note, the silver and gold base coats were all done with gel ink pens. .
  13. Cavalry in Age of Sigmar (includes some whinging)

    Drakespawn should have gotten the discount as well. They are nearly the same as the Dragonblades, but now they are more expensive with fewer attacks. I've been playing both the Aelven Orders for the last year or so and one thing that has been mentioned as a means to make the cav in the game more effective is to give them rend on the charge as well (or any at all for Drakespawn or Dragonblades). Armor piercing was a factor in WHFB due to the strength bonus, but all we get now is the damage output. That being said, Wild Riders are quite useless for the points as they lack the bonus damage, shield, and hero bonuses. At least Drakespawn and Dragonblades get rerolls to hit, wound, or save depending on the shields and command abilities. If going into close combat prevented a unit from shooting, then their run and charge could be useful. Now it really only helps versus warmachines and taking out the light armored crews.
  14. The Legions of Morximinus Thrash

    Praetorrukian Guard Centurion, Gore Choppa, and a Jagged Gore-hacks done. Work started on the weirdnob while greenstuff cures on the other brutes. Toga is done and I've removed the horns. He'll either look like a priest of Jupiter in the series Rome or a senator.
  15. The Legions of Morximinus Thrash

    He's missing some fingers, so i may leave it as an old would, but part of me thought it would be fun if the Brute had bit them off. Or if i find another grot in the bits bin add that it to the base and have that one be the biter.
