  1. So In my shop we are doing a tale of X gamers. We will be sharing our proggression together via our FB social group but I thought I'd share some of my progress as we go on. I have been drawn to Bonesplitterz for a while but a bit put off by potential model count. But having just finished the drama of painting Nagash an Infantry horde is quite welcome and if all goes well I may plan to add a stone Golem in at the end to take my list up to 2k at the end of the year. I really like the look of Arzog the pale orc from the Hobbit. So the paint scheme should be straight forward by glazing a thin layer of rakarth flash and then washing, rubbing at the extremities to 'cheat' a gradient highlight effect. I know this will work in theory but I'm worried that there won't be enough contrast against the light bone colour too. The stone parts (weapons etc), i'm not worried about because they will be painted black to make them look obsidian. I love the contrast of red blood against light white, this always looks quite striking and so wanted to lean heavily towards red in regards to their tattoos. Fluff wise I can justify this by doing the Drakkfoot clan; "The Drakkfoot Warclan hunt their prey among the sprawling Gorelkes of the Ashlands of Aqshy. The lakes are a relic of the Dark Gods dominion over the land, and each crimson pool bubbles and boils with slain souls. The Drakkfoot Orruks use the glowing red blood of the Gorelakes to paint beast tattoos on their bodies, its strange magic mixing with their ambient Waagh! power. We officially start on Monday so cant throw myself into it yet but here is my first test model which i'm fairly happy with. I want to change the basing slightly so it looks like actual blood inbetween the cracks of the Martian Ironearth. So that needs some work.
  2. Good morning all, I thought it was time I got a thread together to gather all my thoughts and progress on my Ironjawz army (perhaps branching into Destruction in a broader sense). I will be including modelling, painting, army lists, battle reports etc etc, I didn't want to do it as a separate blog or anything as I like the idea of keeping it within this Destruction sub forum (which for my money is the best part of the forum at the moment - some great chat, really enthusing me for this army). Hopefully @Ben and the Moderators are cool with this decision. As well as this thread, you will also be able to hear about my exploits on my podcast - The Black Sun. You can find all the most recent episode on this forum, or check out iTunes or www.theblacksun.co.uk - It's not family friendly like most of the other podcasts out there, but is entertaining I like to think. Also I am reasonably active on Twitter, and usually like to post photos of most my games etc. Follow me @the_black_sun I do actually have armies for all 4 of the Grand Alliances in AoS and whilst I am working on all of them simultaneously in various ways, I've definitely noticed my focus begin to increasingly shift towards Destruction. Disclaimer - when the Dark Aelves are released in whatever guise they may be, I am likely to abandon ship and spend all my time in the Order sub forum, being that they are my true Warhammer love, but for now, I'm all about the Ironjawz! I've always been a fan of Orks in Warhammer 40,000 but have never actually played Orcs & Goblins in WFB. So whilst the detractors and troggoths bemoaned the pseudo 40K look of the Ironjawz, I think for me this aesthetic really drew me in and got me going green. So I have already actually played a bunch of games with Ironjawz, having gone "all in", as they say, on the release, but these were all at 100 SCGT points and included a Magma Dragon just to make up the points (oh, and its pretty good!). I figured with the impending release of the General's Handbook, now was a perfect time to draw a line under what's gone so far and start afresh with the new system. We won't get into all the recent allegiance nonsense, you can read about that in other threads. Suffice to say, the Battleline "unlocks" for Ironjawz and the Destruction traits and artefacts make for a pretty nice combination. I'm not saying Ironjawz are going to be out there winning events (certainly not with me using them, if my abysmal results at Call to War are anything to go by!) but I am hoping and somewhat confident they can be competitive...and we have a pretty extensive thread on that right here in this forum! So this is pretty much just an introductory post for now. I have already painted some models (not as many as I would've liked); Megaboss Krunk, who can be found in the gallery and 5 Brutes. I will take some better photos and add them to this thread as soon as possible. I am reasonably happy with the level of the paint jobs and whilst not my best work, believe the army will look nice upon the table. I've intentionally kept the basing quite plain, though I am consider scraping off some areas and adding the flavour of the month; Agrellan Earth, just to add some interest. Using my 40K Ork bitz box I have been able to customise my models and this combined with some reposing has allowed me to make all 20 Brutes so far individual. Just a bit of a shame I got my Gore-gruntas after the Brutes as mixing in their Jagged-Hackas would've been super cool. Considering another 10 Brutes just for this purpose. This weekend (Thursday night to Sunday) I am attending Bossfest, a camping, drinking, gaming extravaganza. Whilst there will be various games being played, I am hopeful of getting in a good few games with Da Black Sunz, which will be the only AoS army I'll be taking. These will be my first games under the General's Handbook and will be played to 2,000 points using the Matched Played Battleplans. Many people in attendance will be practising for my 1 day event, Rain of Stars, which is removing the army restrictions and adding a sideboard (as the event is two weeks after the book drops), so we will also allow that over this weekend, therefore some of the armies I play may not be exactly true to the book. However, this should allow for some solid competition and really stress test the army. The list I use personally will be General's Handbook legal though. For now, my pool of Ironjawz models is; Maw-krusha (happy to use as Gordrakk or Megaboss), Megaboss, Warchanter, Shaman, 20 Brutes, 10 Ardboyz, 3 Gore-gruntas. I am not adverse to buying more though! 2 more boxes of Gore-gruntas are definitely happening after assembling some this past weekend - amazing models. It's worth pointing out that aesthetics are definitely a consideration to me in this army. Here is the list(s) I am currently considering for the weekend; Da Black Sunz - 2,000 points Gordrakk - 700 Megaboss - 140 Warchanter - 80 Weirdnob Shaman - 120 10 Brutes with Jagged Hackas - 360 5 Brutes with Choppas - 180 5 Brutes with Choppas - 180 10 Ardboyz - 180 Ironfist - 60 Total - 2,000 points Nice to hit the 2,000 points dead on really! That seems a challenge in of itself under General's Handbook. The main change I am considering is dropping Gordrakk for a baby Cabbage. The 180 point difference is nice as it allows another battleline unit - in this case Gore-gruntas (mostly just to get all my models on the table). If I wanna keep the big man in there, I can also include the Gore-gruntas by dropping 5 Brutes. What do people think on this? Seems small to me! I'll leave it there for now. This afternoon I'll add my thoughts on Command Traits and Artefacts! Thanks for reading, Chris
  3. Forever Young

    This seems a nice place to start up a blog after deserting warseer! I will start it off with a recently finished Maw-Krusher. I have had a lot of fun painting this guy and it surprisingly didn't take too long to paint. I pretty happy with most of my it although I really need a lot more on the glory effect. I am happy to call him done though and move on to the next one.
  4. Hello I want to share my army list for the tournament 1500p, hope you can give me your feedbacks Of course the Overtyrant is joined! Destruction allegiance, Overtyrant, general, ravager, battle brew - Ogre Kingdoms 160p Bruiser Standard Bearer - Ogre Kingdoms 140p Butcher w. cauldron - Gutbusters 140p Butcher w. cauldron - Gutbusters 140p 12x Ogors w. pairs clubs and blades, battleline - Gutbusters 400p 3x Ogors w. iron fists, battleline - Gutbusters 120p 10x Orruks w. bows, battleline - Greenskinz 90p 6x Yhetees - Beastclaw Raiders 240p Gorger - Gutbusters 60p Have you seen how Bruiser Standard Bearer's lastest update? His Banner of the Great Maw does great... choose a point on the battlefield within 18", roll a dice for each enemy units within 6" of that point, 4+ then that unit suffers D3 mortal wounds.. FTW! Overtyrant?! Yeah he is badass since the warscroll has been updated! with ravager will make him a lot better, take a check on my previous topic "Overtyrant is better than Tyrant". The reason to bring two wizards with cauldron is: Cauldron's abilities do well, can cast his unqiue spell Great Maw and the other cast Arcane Bolt for the extra mortal wounds or Mystic Shield. An unit of 3 Ogors with iron fists, they are doing to be dead yeah but they can just run close to the enemy, stacked by Mystic Shield, maybe also in Cover so they have save 3+, Iron Fists increase by 2 so 4+ instead of 6 for doing mortal wounds! Six Yhetees can just run forward into the strong enemy and distrupt that, just don't forget to use Overtyrant's bribe to subract 1 hit on the enemy unit, that makes very hard to hit on Yhetees. 10x Orruks is the only option to defend for heroes or go for the objective. Later, there will come a big cheese - TWELVE Ogors, reroll 1s to hit, reroll to wound if models are more than 10, if Cauldron does the good job, they can increase to wound for Ogors OR heal them.. I mean 12 Ogors for 400p instead of 6 Ironguts for 400p is a good reason to pick up. Gorger with 60p can be wasted for point BUT that makes enemy gets more targets, less hit on Overtyrant, Butchers, Bruiser and Ogors! I love my army list, now one thing is how my dices will do.. a bad or miracle day Sorry for my grammar but hope you understand me!
  5. Da Crimson Crushas WIP

    An "as is" WIP shot of my Ironjawz army. It's not finished, but it's a good view of how things are looking. With the exception of the Megaboss on foot, everyone of the models in the picture were either primed black or bare plastic just a month ago.
  6. Hello! Im italian fan (sorry for bad english) of all gw universe and miniatures game in general... but mostly gw . Greenskin since the start of this passion more than ten years ago, with the release of orruks in aos my happines raises a lot and i felt like glorious old time, i were literally impatient for that release! So now here we are; im always been very slow to paint a personal army but little by little i hope to raise a modest orruks force to smash some heads in mortal realms! May i present you my orruks tribe: the Ice Klaw Klan. For now i painted 4 gruntas, one missing because i try to heavily convert it and now i need some bits to fix it, but we dont care. The next in processing are 3 gore gruntas and the megaboss that ill show you in next days, im converting it at the moment. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH! to all A little intruder:

  9. Da Bad Grinz - Ironjawz

    Hello there traveller, This is slightly overdue but alas here we are - Da Bad Grinz - I won't lie, it took me a lot longer to come up with the name (In fact it came to me one particularly unpleasant night during some sort of fevered dream state) than I care to admit, I'm quite particular about naming things so I don't want to commit and decide to change in a months time! Similar to other topics of this sort I'll be posting progress as well as thoughts and questions to those of you who have more answers than myself. As such any feedback or help you are willing to offer - please do! I'll also make an effort to comment on certain things I struggled with and any solutions I found so that others may benefit. My Ironjawz consist of a start collecting box, a Weirdnob warband, a black orc big boss I recently acquired and another unit of brutes that is constructed of other models within the GW and FW range. Another thing I don't care to admit is how long it has taken me to assemble all of this, it seems I'm quite slow and overly thorough with mould lines, even going as far at times to scrape edges when I know they're there but can't see them. Anyway time to attach some bad pictures of grey plastic dappled with milliput as I'm currently in the process of filling every gap that I can see, probably making more of a mess in the process. This is Megaboss 'Daddy' Waaghbux - Not 100% on the name but it makes me chuckle. Apologies for the blutac, I haven't attached his hands as I want to magnetise them both for future ventures, and the skull parts too as I'm in the process of sorting any gaps first. Also different head on this guy which was fun and satisfying to do. Here we have my Weirdnob who has no name, probably because I like calling him a Weirdnob. And my Warchanter Garth whose chest pieces caused me an absolute nightmare as I decided it was a good idea to glue them together so sub-assembly purposes, in the end I've pinned both and drilled his nips ( managed to go straight through one chest piece with my drill which was rad cool) Brutes, they were all a dream as I was able to stick their chest pieces together separately for painting purposes, and still manage to wriggle them into place for when I do eventually glue them. All apart from peg leg there second from the right, he's the only one who won't do that and as such I've had to leave his chest pieces separate to get them in - which is why they look weird propped up in there. Okay so technically I've lied, I have only constructed five out of my fifteen 'Ardboys. I plan on having them all with two single handed weapons, and I'll probably get another Weirdnob Warband to round them out to 20 'Ardboys and for the other Brutes too. I've also decided not to bothwe with any Milliput goodness on these guys as I'm going slightly insane with it, and also the joints aren't bad at all, none of them are over flat pieces of armour so I'm chill. Very Excitingly I've done a minor addition to my drummer and added a spare axe to his back for cool factor and also so he legitimately has two weapons. I've used two small lengths of wire and twisted them tightly using an electric drill to get this rope effect, and after a bit of manipulation I'm happy with the results. Gore-Gruntas are super super cool models, the number of gaps in their faces and undersides annoy me, as well as the backs of the riders themselves having lots of joints to fill, also on the two normal pigs the ears were fairly frustrating. In fact the one on the right didn't go in properly before the glue set so I've had to fill a couple of mm here and there around the ears but it makes no difference now. Also the boss has a second choppa, because he's the boss and gets an extra attack so it's fluffy or something. The weapon was an unused one from my Brutes and fit perfectly. And finally my rag-tag band of Brutes from across the realms. Featured as the Brute boss with claw and smasha we have Grumlok and Gazbag in the centre, the friendly Moonclan Grot offering emotional support in the bromance. Either side of Grumlok we have Badruk on the left and Grimgor on the right (Jagged Gore-Hackas), both direct descendants from their name-sakes (or so they tell everyone). And finally the two resin models from Forgeworld have yet to be named, for the one with the big axe (Gore-choppa) I'm thinking Ludwig 'Eadhunter, and for the one with the wyvern wing standard (Jagged Gore-Hacka) I'm thinking 'Blahblah Wyvernsmasha' or something along those lines. And that's it for now! I'm putting them all on Shattered Dominion bases, I'm looking to use a colour scheme that compliments their skin and armour. But this post is probably illegally long or something like that now so I'll stop here. I'm away for the weekend so progress will be slow for a while. I'm super stoked to get them on the table but that won't be for a long time yet as I don't want to put them on their bases until everything is basically painted. I've pinned all their feet for painting access and drilled some pieces of wood for them to sit on. Okay seriously I'll stop now, if you've read this far then thank you for feigning interest. Thanks team Will x
  10. Oi! I thought I would follow everyone else’s example and start my own painting thread, highlighting (pun intended) some of the things I have been working on. Short background, I’ve been seriously painting minis for almost two years, dabbled in 40k stuff when I was a kid, few years ago I painted some Orks, but this period is my first time actually trying to learn how to paint. The hobby aspect of AOS is I think the thing that really motivates me, I’m not the best player but I love to paint and think up conversions, so basically I see myself as a hobby hero, which absolutely informs how I create armies and play. Right now my project is...IRONJAWZ! I picked up the Ironjawz originally when they first dropped, I was new to AOS and I’ve always loved Orks in 40k, so this was a no brainer. I painted them up, played one game, and then moved on to Skaven (love those little ******). I’ve came back around to the Ironjawz and stripped my old models, bought some new ones, and am currently trying to get ready for a local tournament here in Alberta. I’d like to take the Ironjawz but I have to do a LOT of painting in not that much time, so we will see. First batch of Ardboyz here, I knew I wanted a red colour scheme, but clearly this is A LOT of red. Next batch is coming up soon, should be a bit more colour variation.
  11. Part 1: Prologue Thunder rumbled and echoed over the distant ragged mountain peaks that surrounded Wortbad. One of the moons pierced the heavy black clouds that rolled and writhed over them and silver light picked out the tops of tangled dead trees. The woods that filled most of the land between the Evernight Peaks and the village were dark and foreboding, even in daylight, at night they were full of terrors. Horrific things prowled the winding paths between gnarled and clawing branches. Spirits of the restless dead, flesh eating creatures, ghouls, ghasts, wolves, bats, vampires and worse. ~ ~ ~ The chill Autumn wind scoured Sorrow Fen and whipped the long coats and tattered robes of the Nachtjägers. Professor Fangmorder pulled his broad brimmed hat firmly down on his head and squinted with his one good eye through a small brass spyglass. After a few minutes of studying the boarded-up doors and windows of Wortbad and noting the numerous crude wards, made of string, twigs, bones and dried flowers hung from door and window frames, he closed the spyglass with a click. He turned to Grimming and nodded sombrely. “It is as ve feared. The willage is deserted again and looks wery much like it vas overrun by Deadwalkers recently.” he said with a heavy Harrowmark accent. Grimmig took a long breath, as if to ready himself. The Shaman-Priest hefted his grandhammer and said “Den dere is da Holy vork of Sigmork to be done!” with fury in his eyes. ~ ~ ~ Godfather Viktor and I are about to start a five game campaign for the Halloween season. In the past we have always aimed to play a themed game to celebrate Halloween but for lots of reasons they have never happened. This year we decided to play a mini campaign over a few weeks to make sure the seasonal game takes place, even if we can't play on the 31st of October itself!
  12. Adm'rul Kurgan Grimjaw and the Ironfang Pirate Fleet don't all come from one Realm so they don't like to be tied down to any location and always have one eye on the horizon in search of the next drink/loot/fight. The fleet is often scattered around the oceans and seas of the Mortal Realms. They have used Blackrock, in Ghur, as a base of operations and meeting point for many years (and if you believe the old Adm'rul, he says he was Pirate Prince for a while). Before that they also used an uncharted island chain known as Hell's Teef, somewhere in the Sea of Serpents. Adm'rul Kurgan is a veteran of a hundred campaigns in every corner of the Realms: from the steaming jungles of Ghyran to the ruined cities of the Hysh; he has burned ports along the Rotwater Blight, raided the islands of Okkam’s Reach in Ulgu, besieged fortresses in the Endless Desert, endured the perpetual snowstorms and barren wastes of the Silverglades in Chamon, battled on the rivers in the heart of the Jade Kingdoms, looted the Baneskull Islands of Shyish and engaged all manner of foes on land and sea. All the while stealing anything that wasn't nailed down, and having a go with a claw-hammer at anything that was. He and Da Ironfangs are always ready to run away from whatever the world throws at them! Adm'rul Kurgan Grimjaw, Orruk Ironjawz Megaboss The Cleavermaws, Orruk Buccaneers of Ghur, led by Kap'n Mogrum Da Butcha, with his first mate Mr Sludga and Navigator-Shaman Lost Uzzog. The Rotmoons, Swashbuckling Orruk Privateers of Chamon, Led by Kapitan Alunzo da Leeva, with Explorer-Shaman El Doctoro. The Chimeras, Orruk Corsairs of Hysh, led by Kap'n Sinbag, with first mate Big Uluc and Mystic-Shaman Weird Khaaan. The Four Pounders, Ogor Leadbelchers Da Wreckers, Fellwater Troggoths led by Trollumbus. Grapeshot, the Rumguzzler Gargant.
  13. Da Black Jawz

    Da Black Jawz I should probably find a more Orruk version of Black for the name, just Blak perhaps? Anyway lets see if I can get some motivation together to actually see this project through to its completion? I have been very much a hobby butterfly since Age of Sigmar dropped. As I have almost no local players it has been tough to stick to one project and I have just been jumping from one unit or model to the next as I saw fit. For the year before Age of Sigmar dropped I had been collecting and painting a huge Destruction army. I am not yet brave enough to rebase it, especially as I would need three hundred bases. Who knows it may eventually happen. What I hadn't painted yet was my Black Orcs. Now that they are 'Ardboyz I took them out and just started painting. I am trying to keep it quick and simple so that I don't lose motivation. The models are great and so that has helped enormously when it comes to the painting. I haven't rebased these guys off of their square bases just yet as I don't know what way I want to do their bases. My order forces are all based on a ruined sigmarite temple theme but that doesn't fit here and I want something a little easier as the greenstuff bases takes ages to do. I have done forest bases to death at this point and while I like them I think I need something else. What I definitely won't do is snow. I hate snow bases, they invariably look poor and I also don't have any snow terrain.
  14. Svens Drakkfoot Warclan

    Started a Bonesplitters army, making a thread to show my stuff (and motivate myself to update regularly to finish). Big Boss with Magmarite Cleava. (Based in the blood rivers in Aqshy.)

  16. So Destruction huh... I rebased my Ogres the minute AoS dropped and have been using them exclusively until SCGT 2016 when I re-based my demons. But before this madness began (don't we all just love re-basing an entire army!) I had bought some Orcs to add to my Ogres. The Orcs will be painted up in the same scheme as the Ogres (The Meat Men ofMitzmanheim) and are slowly coming together. Here are some photos of what is finished and a couple of wip shots of my troll unit.
  17. Hey all! So I'm a new Bonesplitterz player and I've been trying to build some lists for various upcoming events. I'll get into list specifics in a bit, but given that I'm still new to Bonesplitterz, hell, DESTRUCTION as a whole, I wanted to make sure I'm coming from the right "philosophical" standpoint first if that makes sense. (I'm sure some of you are already like "Philosophical? Well you've already failed at Destruction" :P) SO! The questions; Given that we have trash saves even at our most durable, do we need to rely solely on numbers, or is there some hidden gem I'm missing? How do we balance quantity with quality? Or do we even bother? Is this just statistics spam the faction? If it's worth any context, I've played Tyranids in the past in Warhammer 40k, so I understand the whole "quantity is a quality all it's own", but I'm used to having some linchpin units in my army to ensure that my opponent doesn't just have to focus down, say, one or two arrow boy squads. Also, having units that can go toe to toe with higher save armies like Stormcast seem like an important thing to have. It feels like Bonesplitterz are lacking in the mortal wounds and rend department. (barring Big Stabbaz) Do we borrow from other Destruction factions? Am I just overthinking things, and in practice we don't need them? TL;DR Got my Kunnin' Rukks, whats next?
  18. I played this list: - 3 thundertusk huskard - Savage boss - 40 man kunnin rukk archers - 2 units of 20 screen goblins with fanatics - 1 unit of screen orruks The army is 240 shots at 4+/4+ and 18 mortal wounds from 18" Against my stormcast, I charged first turn with 2 paladin units, fulminators and prosecutors. one fanatic stopped me for the most part so I did mostly nothing, then all of it was dead after his shooting. I was at a big disadvantage this game because escalation lets him basically take the corner so I have no way to get to him, and puts him especially far back so my shooting is all out of range. The only thing i can think of would be to keep my entire army in the celestial realm and make him move up, create room for me then strike down and hope to get some charges in the right places.
  19. Hey guys! So I've been painting seraphon for a tournament on the 16th, but the whole time I've been thinking about my game the other day with a friend and I think I might wait to bust out the seraphon... Need some more practice, I don't think the list I was going to take is for someone with as little AOS experience as myself. So I was back at the drawing board, looking at my collection I saw that I had a large collection of greenskinz sitting in the lunch bags they came in (bought them second hand) and thought maybe they might be alright. I know they're not as good as savage orruks with their shiny battletome, but 5+ re-rollable in CC seems alright (mine are the ones that come with shields, the snap together orruks). So the first thing I looked at was what battalions are available to me. Since I knew the army would probably have a load of drops I'd like to try and reduce these if I could. In the AOS app there is only one, the Greenskinz big mob. I noticed that the battalion uses different keywords for the units, but the app still says they're legal choice when selecting the orruk boyz, so that was good enough for me. The list: Greenskinz big mob battalion Orruk warboss - Waagh banner - General, talisman of preservation Orruk great shaman 30 Orruks with shields and choppa - full command 30 orruks with shields and choppa - full command Boar chariot - Would have loved to take boar boyz, but don't own any and I like the older models and can't seem to find them anywhere for cheapish 20 arrer boyz - Boss Frostlord on stonehorn - battle brew 3 gorgers Rock lobba So the list functions similar to my ogor list which incorporates the frostlord. You throw the frostlord and gorgers in the opponents face, causing as much disruption as possible. The other elements of my army move up and capture objectives and kill any survivors. Its a pretty effective strategy with my only losses coming from people who have accidentally cheated to kill the stonehorn (one guy used some plague spell, but dealt a mortal wound every phase instead of when he caused a wound (think its miasma?) and another used van hels in his and my turn as well as dual artifacts when he didn't have a battalion). I think that I might place higher this time around then with the ogors as the orruks feel like they might contribute a little more. Will see though! Crispen out
  20. Savage Orruks Strategy and Tips??

    hey im new to playing as savage orruks just after some strategy and tips on how to use them, also would like to know what weapons people have in a 30 unit savage orrukk unit i was thinking 15 chompas and 15 stikkas
  21. Hey guys and gals! Thought Id put up a blog here too to get some feedback on my minis and mayhaps some inspiration to get stuff done. I have a load of armies going on, some actually decent sized and some Im just pretty much beginning, even if I have a load of unbuilt minis for some armies waiting. These wont be in any chronological or w.e order and I tend to paint a mini from here and there, I seem to lose my interest in painting the same colours and minis from beginning to actually having something to call an army. So, I might upload a pic of a new dryad and next an Orruks Brute and so on But my back is killing me atm so Ill keep this short, pic time! First up are my speedpainted Nurglies, these are mostly done by washing and drybrushing with the occasional highlight. I painted these with a rather limited pallette, just to keep it simple and quick. The big guy himself The Lord of Plagues and my tiny Sorcerer I do have some close ups too if someone wants Blightkings Warriors Dragon Ogres, theres a third one too but its more or less the same. Ten of these doggies, all the same Then something with a bit more effort put into them, my few ready Stormcasts So there, some of my works Atm there are some Sylvaneth coming, whenever I have the time actually paint and my back has gotten better and whenever I get around to taking pics of the few Ive actually painted already and I have a pile of Orruks too, mainly Ironjawz coming sometime in the future. I have 5 or so 40k projects too but dont think ill be spamming them here, you can see some in my Instagram profile though, routaminiatures. Feel free to hit the follow if interested. I will try and keep this updated when I get stuff done, might take a while sometimes, especially if Im painting 40k. But enough jabbering, feedback is happily received, be it good or bad. -Routa
  22. So whilst I'm waiting to see how cool the new Air Pirate Duradin are, I'm still quite tickled by the Destruction Grand Alliance and thinking what sort of things I can do in it. Some of these ideas are taking a step away from my beloved Stonehorns and Ogors and trying something new. This has led me to trying out Orruks as we all know Orruks are the best! So sticking with the new battletombs and what is cool, I've come up with the followuing.... Allegiance: Destruction Orruk Megaboss (140) - General - Trait: Bellowing Tyrant - Artefact: Battle Brew Orruk Warchanter (80) - Artefact: Talisman of Protection Savage Big Boss (100) - Granite Choppas - Artefact: Talisman of Protection 15 x Orruk Brutes (540) 5 x Orruk Brutes (180) 5 x Orruk Brutes (180) 10 x Savage Orruks (100) 10 x Savage Orruks (100) 10 x Savage Orruks (100) 30 x Savage Orruk Arrowboys (300) Ironfist (60) Kunnin' Rukk (60) Total: 1940/2000 So a very simple list using the Kunnin Rukk to take advantage of the shooting and then having a load of Orruks to throw at people. List should be fairly fast with the Destruction moves and other things it can do, and hit quite hard. I'm quite tempted to have a go with this list but wondering what you would do to improve it or tweak things?
  23. Hello all. I have a fully painted 3k point Ironjawz army for sale. I'm in no rush to sell it but I will definitely let it go for the right price! The list is as follows: 1 x megaboss on maw krusha (magnetized so he can go on a base or on the krusha) 1 x megaboss on foot 1 x Weirdnob shaman 3 x war chantas 30 Ard Boys ( 15 2-handers, 15 dual-wield. Shields available but unpainted.) 20 brutes (4 units. All units have 1 gore Choppa. 3 have a Klaw and smasha, one has a boss Choppa.) 3 units of gore gruntas, magnetized weapon options between the Choppa and jagged gore hackas. Some poor quality pictures as follows. PM me if you have inquiries or want better pictures! Also have an 'ard case available for them.
  24. Greetings. I am currently building an Sylvaneth army. In the future I am planning on going to tournaments with them when I have learned how to play them. This project will be slow paced and I really enjoy painting them so that will take some time to paint them all. Meanwhile I want a fighty army that I can play now as I learn more about the game itself. And I am looking at Ironjawz and Khorne bloodbound. Both armies have some pro's and con's. Ironjawz + Hardback battletome + Great models + Low model count + Seems easy enough to play + Good fluff - Few unit options - Quite expensive $$$ Khorne Bloodbound + Hardback battletome + Great models + Good army bundles + Fun synergies + Good variety of units + Cheaper $$$ - Lots of bodies (will take longer to paint) - Don't know anything about the fluff (except that they like to kill stuff) I dont know how competitive they are. But Ironjaws are quite popular in Sweden, Bloodbound are rarely seen in my area. And I have a good idea of how I would like to build and paint both armies. So I am in quite a pickle here! What du you think? Any good advice? Thank you for looking and feel free to leave a comment below
