    The Painting Contract - August 2017

    Sorry but a rather pants performance from me too. Did a little work on the Bloodthrone but still not finished and didn't even get to look at the guys from Gorechosen. Managed to pick up some wrathmongers at the weekend though. The backlog is starting to build up and not enough time to get it all done.

    dead monsters becoming terrain

    A very novel idea. I like it and think I might have a go next time I play a game to see how this will work. I like the re-animation idea as well although this might give undead players a major advantage. Exploding squigs/frigates is a good one. If they explode next to a piece of scenery it could damage it and become unstable. You can then give that piece of scenery a 'Crumbling' attribute like in Skirmish. Dead monster in a river could act like a dam (crossable, like a bridge) and part of the board could become flooded and stop a running and charging due to the boggy conditions. This simple idea could create a whole new way to play and bring in some fantastic new strategies. I LIKE IT!

    Real Talk about the Double Turn

    I like the Initiative roll off, it does give a strategic advantage to the winner. Taking a double turn is helpful but you cannot play your game pinning your hopes on getting it, like so many players do. The same could be said for forcing your opponent to take the first turn, giving them a false sense of security and hopefully fall into your trap. I have played a few games and also played the smaller skirmish games and have never thought that winning a double turn gave me the win, or vice versa. So my opinion is to leave it alone and play as GW intended.

    Water Effect Help

    I watched a video a month or so ago in which the chap built a waterfall. He used pva and a plastic sheet. Paint the pva onto the sheet in strips (width as required) and once dried peel of the sheet and apply with glue. Youvcan even make it thicker in places to give it a more natural look. Bit of an experiment but if you want a coloured translucent finish try mixing a shade wash into the glue. It might work. Sent from my E2303 using Tapatalk

    For this one I think I'll finish my Bloodthrone, for starters then I've got the Gorechosen game with 4 characters to do. Stretch goal: Sigmarite Mausoleum box set Sent from my E2303 using Tapatalk

    The Painting Contract - July 2017

    Very similar situation here as well. Got everything built as seen above and the ten Bloodletters are done and so are the Bloodcrushers. Sadly I've only got the base colours done on the Bloodthrone so not quite there. Still shouldn't take to long to get it to the battlefield. Although you can't see very well in my photos (must find a better way of taking them) I have had my first attempt at blending colours to go from Dryad Bark to Khorne Red on the horns. Quite happy with the outcome.

    @TheOtherJosh Moving slower than anticipated. Took a while to decide on a colour scheme for my Daemons of Khorne. That is now sorted and painting has resumed but slowly due to real life issues. Should get them done, fingers crossed. Bloodletter colour was plagiarised from this post: Really liked the dirty finish of the original. Makes them look like they are having fun bathing in the blood of their victims.

    Skirmish: chaos warbands.

    Played a skirmish game today as part of the local stores campaign. We have been playing the campaign from the book and today's was the last game. I started the campaign with the following: 1x Bloodstoker (16)- General 1x Khorgorath (16) 4x Blood Warriors (16) = 48 Renown A few games in I was able to add 4 more Blood Warriors (16 renown) and today I spent up most of my spare renown on 20 Bloodreavers and 5 Bloodletters. It was a long slog for a Skirmish game but very enjoyable. Sadly I lost the game by the narrowest of margins and if I had rolled better for my Khorgorath (who fluffed all 5 attacks and 2 underdog re-rolls) in the last round I would have won. At present I am still top of the league table, but one of my rivals has a couple of games in hand so I may lose the top spot. Hey-Ho for my first ever campaign I don't think I did too badly. I was also impressed with my 11 year old son who looks like ending at 4th or 5th place. Not bad for someone completely new to the hobby. He wasn't playing Chaos though he was playing Stormcast Eternals.

    Alternate Color Bloodletters

    I liked the dirty finish of the first. It reminded me of the white Martians on Supergirl. I think a gradient job ( dirty white to dark purple) to the horns and fins would contrast well. Sent from my E2303 using Tapatalk

    Your not the only one. This was my first pledge as well and I am not that quick or good either but this is just a bit of fun in this amazing hobby of ours. I'm just enjoying the moment. Hope you do too.

    For my first ever pledge. I'm going with a build and paint the start collecting set of Daemons of Khorne. 1x Bloodthrone / Skull Cannon 3x Bloodcrushers 10x Bloodletters I think that's enough for now. As an after thought! Which way should I go, Bloodthrone or Skull Cannon? Sent from my E2303 using Tapatalk

    New video on shadespire with the designers

    Can't wait for this. Being an avid board game player as well as an AoS fan this is looking to be just my kind of thing.

    Thoughts on Skirmish Tactics

    I have been playing the Shadespire campaign in the Skirmish book at my local GW and I have been fielding a Boodstoker, Khorgorath and 4 Bloodwarriors (1 being a champion). I went with this combination for a few reasons. 1. I only had the Starter set and a Valkia The Bloody model to go with. 2. I wanted as much hitting power per point as possible. In return I get the whipped to fury ability giving me extra 3" on run or charge moves and re-rolling 1 on hit rolls. Three ranged attacks from Khorgorath's Bone Tenticles. Six attacks from the Bloodstoker three at 1" and three at 3" range, five attacks from the Khorgorath giving two wounds per hit with a -1 rend, three attacks from my Blood Warrior Champion and two attacks each for the other three Blood Warriors. So overall I have a unit that can move fairly quickly and hit hard. The only downside is that I have nothing that flies, so no 12" movement. Why has Valkia not got a point value? She was made for Skirmish.
