  1. Firstly - who's giddy with excitement? Secondly - how am I the first to think of creating this thread? I'm sure you know the drill by now. This is a convenient place to discuss all things Disciples of Tzeentch - particularly tactics, rules and hobby. Change-oriented puns will be encouraged but not mandatory*. *Subject to arbitrary revision at a moment's notice.
  2. I’ve bitten off a way bigger project than I can chew and am working on a large force of Tzeentch models, between Slaves to Darkness, Daemons and Arcanites. While I work on assembly (which takes me forever thanks to being a perfectionist with mold lines, gaps, subassemblies and separate basing on some models), I’m practicing my paint schemes with some models off of eBay. So far that’s meant this Kairic Acolyte- I’d love C&C from anyone working on a similar army, or in general, as I puzzle outhoe to replicate the GW studio scheme (which coincidentally fits my favorite fluff from the Battletome, the mutation-obsessed Cult of the Transient Form). People on the AoS subreddit night have already seen this; I have a short list of problem areas I know how to do differently and some things I’m still working on: 1. The cloth: I need to do a recess shade after the initial layer of Celestra Grey instead of layering up to Ulthuan Grey and thinking I can clean up an all-over wash. 2. The skin: this is Rakarth Flesh, all-over Reikland Fleshshade, Flayed One Flesh layer. For the next one, I think I’ll get better, less stark results by layering up to Flayed One first, washing with thinned Reikland and then layering Flayed One again and Pallid Wych Flesh for highlights, but I’m totally open to feedback and suggestions. For full units (and at least one of my three remaining eBay practice models) i want to mix in darker skin tones as well. 3. The gold. It’s too bright on the mask; the shield is shaded but not layered yet. I start with Retributor Armor and Reikland Fleshshade (washed at the same time as the skin) but a layer of Liberator Gold is too bright and silvery. I’m going to try a layer of Auric Armor Gold, leaving Liberator for highlights and Stormhost Silver for fine points, though I’m a little worried that might look too much like the Stormcast color scheme... 4. The visible mutations, in this case the mask and feet. I’m a little annoyed that the multipart Acolytes don’t have bird feet and from what I can tell the masks don’t seem melded into their faces like on this guy but rather just seated on top, with flesh visible around the eyes on some, but I’ll figure out how I want to make it work. This is just a wash of Carroburg Crimson, which left some unfortunate tide marks and uneven finish on the applied areas. 5. Finally, and his is just personal preference, the gems. I’m not really sold on the gemstone paints, and this model (and the Tzeentch range!) has enough uneven shapes, like the “eyes” on the belt and dagger hilt, to make the gem paints physically difficult to apply. And the metallic finish makes it that much more difficult to paint a pupil on the “eye” gems and have it be legible. I’m going to try the old school approach on future models and see where that gets me.
  3. Skyfires.

    First test unit completed, there is so much fine detail on these things it makes it painful on the eyes to paint, but they are such magnificent minis.
  4. Path of the Changer

    Tzeentch be praised!! Welcome to my Tzeentch AoS PLOG. To start with, a little background. I'm based in Manchester in the UK and I've been on these forums for a few months now, mainly as a lurker but also an occasional poster. I've recently moved house and have been itching to get back into painting - all of my stuff has been packed up for a couple of months now. The birth of my son last year really impacted the amount of time I had to paint; but I suppose that's what comes with fatherhood. I've decided to start this PLOG to give me an additional incentive to find time to paint - I'm a painter first with my hobby, and a gamer second. I've been to numerous Throne of Skulls tournaments held at Warhammer World, where my armies have been nominated for best painted twice and I've won the coveted award once. I'm a perfectionist, and I've been known to strip a model and start again just because I've not been able to get a blend right. Anyway, enough of that rubbish. My favourite Chaos god has always been Tzeentch; the magic, the mystery, and the fact that even in the face of losing game after game I know that it's all part of Tzeentchs' plan. I've had Silver Tower since it was released - I love all of the models in that box and really wanted those to form the basis of my AoS force. I want my force to be striking, and draw the eye - basically, I'm aiming to paint an award winning force again. I've decided to start by painting the Gaunt Summoners (I have both the one on foot and on disc) and the familiars to get a feel for an overall colour scheme. From these, I'm starting with the familiars - basically because if I ****** them up I have replicas from the box. So without further ado, here's a completed Blot, and a WIP of Slop. Bases will be completed at a later date, once we have a better idea of how the realm of metal looks. C&C is always welcome.
  5. Villanous updates

    It has been far far too long since I updated here. There have been some excellent releases recently that have reignited interest in painting. The main theory was that the two Warhammer Quest boxes provide a fairly varied starter set for a small Arcanite force and shouldn't need too much adding to bulk it out a bit more. Anyone that has had the misfortune of reading my threads over on Dakka know that I have lots of ideas and only occasionally get around to fulfilling them all as I'm very easily distracted... so hopefully you can keep me on track with some semi regular posts. I've been experimenting with colours for the Arcanites and the theme appears to have evolved into a combined Chaos force (Tzeentch/Khorne) under the command of a demon known only as the King in Yellow. No-one (least of all me) is quite sure how he has persuaded these two groups to join forces. I have plans for the King, but won't go into them here and now as they need a bit more fleshing out. The prototype Arcanite is this Tzaangor: For the Khorne forces, I've started putting paint to the Gorechosen figures. The yellow of these is actually what started the whole King in Yellow theme. I know there are a couple of other yellow Bloodbound forces on here and really liked the very different take on Khorne, so thought I'd give it a try on one Once he was complete, I needed to find some way to tie him into any other Chaos forces that I did. The Khornate forces are now amore orangey yellow, grey skin tones, black and steel; Tzeentch is a more lemonn-y yellow, purple/blue/turquoise and silver. With those rules now set, I attacked the next most common Slaughterpriest to see if it still flowed through. So, do you think it works?
  6. Time for another character for my chaos army. This one nicely blurs the line between sorcerer and beastman,,, The Ogroid Thaumaturge! Mainstay of The Silver Tower and Tzeentch Arcanites (he wouldn't look bad as the magic support in a Warherd army either...) I was quite happy with the wet blending on his skin, although I could quite happily never have to paint another one of his eldritch sigils. I'm not sure how I feel about his 'looking over the shoulder' pose. It's nice to have a different sculpt to 'looking straight ahead', but there doesn't seem to be a single, best angle to view him from (hence all the photos), and I think he works best in three-dimensions. He's off to command a mixed Chaos force in a five-game tournament this weekend, so I hope his sigils are fully-charged!
  7. Tzaangor prototype

    Tzaangor prototype; follower of the King in Yellow
  8. Yesterday I started to assemble my box set of Tzaangors. This 10 model kit is really something. Every part is interchangeable. It is fairly easy to build your great weapon builds, your mutants, your twistbrays with great weapons. Different heads, tentacles, arm poses all come together. If you read my earlier blog entries you will see what a mixed unit weapons wise this unit will be and mine unit will be 30. Can't wait to put them all together! This unit is going to be sick!
  9. So I have been giving a lot of thought to the guts of my Disciples of Tzeentch army. I am going to start by using Tzaangors for this. Unit of 30- 540 points. Tzaangor Shaman-120 points. 1- Twistbray with Shield Thinking about giving him a great blade. 1- Icon bearer 1- Brayhorn with Shield 6- Muntants paired savage blades. 12- Great blades 9- Savage blade/ Arcanite shield. Would you change anything on this make up?
  10. Greetings all. First time blogger here. Been doing minis since the 70's. Then last year was very exited about AOS. I am a servant of Chaos and the gods I pray to are Khorne, and Tzeentch. I also have a good start on a Slave to Darkness army that will all have the Mark of Tzeentch. Currently I am building a very heavy Tzaangor list and here is my first pic. Going to be sharing my thoughts on this army construction all the way to 2000 points.
  11. Hi guys, built the list I'm planning to bring to a tournament in may. I've got quite a few Slaves to Darkness models but after trying to fit all my new stuff in along with those old models I realized there wasn't much StD left... so in the end it became an Arcanite/Daemon list. With SEVEN wizards (including the Pink Horrors) I'm going to be slinging spells left and right and fuelling some mortal wound output from the Tzaangor. The Skyfires and Shaman will hang back and shoot key units while the Pink Horrors and Tzaangor advance up front, taking objectives and being in the way, and the Enlightened and quite fighty Lord of Change deliver the follow-up punch to take stuff out. While all this is going on my wizards are lighting up the battlefield like it's Mardi Gras. What do you guys think? Anything you would change? Too few bodies and too fragile? Leaders Lord Of Change (300) - General - Trait: Incorporeal Form - Tzeentch Daemon Hero - Artefact: Phantasmal Weapons Ogroid Thaumaturge (160) Tzaangor Shaman (120) Chaos Sorcerer Lord (140) - Runestaff Gaunt Summoner of Tzeentch (120) Battleline 10 x Pink Horrors Of Tzeentch (140) 10 x Pink Horrors Of Tzeentch (140) 20 x Tzaangors (360) Units 3 x Tzaangor Skyfires (160) 3 x Tzaangor Skyfires (160) 3 x Tzaangor Enlightened (160) Battalions Tzaangor Coven (40) Total: 2000/2000
  12. I wanted to do something a little different with my Balewind Vortex to tie it into my Gaunt Summoner. He seemed like the type of guy to surf a screaming column of space magic, y'know?
  13. Hi everyone. Warhammer Quest Silver Tower has brought me back to the hobby after many years. In the past I have been a Chaos collector (and occasional player), though my first love were the lizards (which is the last time I seriously tried painting). Since then it has been Cult of Slaanesh, Chaos Daemons and Skaven, though all largely unpainted. So here's my first batch painted, and its Tzeentch Daemons + Arcanites vs a lone warpriest and his hound. Someone's not making it home tonight! Apologies for the poor photography.
  14. ... I think I would go with this painting scheme. It was painful to do and took me ages to finish this model. Still I really like the mix of purple and bright blue. So Tzeentch Arcanites, this is the way I would have a go with you Tzeentch you have been warned Model was done long long time ago in a galaxy, wait, stop! No "Force" nonsense in AoS forums! It was done for ebay, just to try something different, and was hell of a ride to do. With Tzeentch Arcanites on the horizon, with Silver Tower models just released, he seems proper blast from the past entry
