  1. Seeing as I'm currently collecting many different armies and painting , I thought I would just put them all under one topic. I'm currently painting Khorne for Alliance this weekend. I still have a Bloodstoker to finish and a Bloodsecrator to build and paint. Last night I finished Lord of Khorne on a Jugganaut. Looking at the pictures now, I think i need an extra highlight on the red.
  2. So my FLGS is embarking on an AoS slow grow league to get a player base established in the area. I have decided to play Disciples of Tzeentch, as I've long been an admirer of the changer of ways. I will be keeping my progress and results updated here as the league progresses, mainly as a way to document my experience and keep me motivated. The league itself will be starting at 760 points with a requirement of 1 battleline unit to begin with. I am playing daemons of Tzeentch, other armies I know of at this stage include 2 Sylvaneth, 2 Stormcast, Fyreslayers, nurgle daemons and ghouls. My force began with a Start Collecting: Daemons of Tzeentch box as well as an additional burning chariot and box of screamers. I chose the extra screamers over flamers because I like the models and like the idea of a fast, mobile army as a core of my early force. Not only do Flamers appear to be a bit too lethal but at 200 points they are quite expensive at this stage. My initial list is as follows: Allegiance: ChaosLeadersHerald Of Tzeentch On Burning Chariot (200)- General- Staff of Change- Trait: Incorporeal Form - Tzeentch Daemon Hero- Lore of Change: Bolt of TzeentchBattleline1 x Burning Chariots Of Tzeentch (160)- Tzeentch Daemon Battleline (Herald on Chariot General)Units3 x Screamers Of Tzeentch (140)3 x Screamers Of Tzeentch (140) Reinforcement Points: 120Total: 760/760 Not sure how this will perform, the only model I have assembled for summoning is an exalted flamers on foot but I'm hoping to exploit the mobile nature of this list. I have little to no experience with Age of Sigmar so don't have any real tactics in mind at this stage, but any suggestions would be welcome. Thats all for now folks, will update tomorrow with some painted shots of my screamers.
  3. I have finished the Scythes of Alleriel, very pleased with how they turned out, they're clearly part of the overall army while adding some golden armour to the sea of wooden bodies. They were easy to convert and easy to paint up, the only downside to them is how expensive it would be to add another 5 now that i dont just have the parts lying around. Up next you can see I have blocked in the colours for my Liberators, still have to highlight everything, but you can see the general direction that I am going for and I am pretty pleased with how its turning out. After these 10 I have 2 dracoth riders left to paint, along with the Prime and Knight-Venerator to build and convert, debating what i should do for those, as I want to give them some Sylvaneth elements on top of the paint job. Gonna try and see if the Kurnoth bow fits the Venerator well enough, mayb through in some sprites. On another note I still haven't started basing... my self justification at this point is that I will finish the army and then base it so that its all consistent, at least thats what I keep telling myself. Of course once I am done with the stormcast contingent I may very well be looking to add some flying dwarf backup. or even some Cthulu elves if they are cool enough. Comments and criticisms as always are appreciated.
  4. So I'm a slow painter by and large. I need to learn speedy tricks. I'm not going to post what I've painted to date (I'll include one pic I put in the display army thread elsewhere) but things I'm currently working on. The past two and a half weeks my evening hour or two has been spent on 2 concussors. These guys are quite the challenge to paint! In effect it's another LCoD from the starter set with a few more details. The first one is 99% complete and here he (or she) is! The 2nd concussor is maybe 70% complete and is next up. After that I've got 5 x paladins to build and paint, 5 x liberators to build and paint and then 4 x liberators to paint. After that, well I'm thinking of a style and faction change. Plus I've got Silver Tower to paint. We'll see! There's months of work ahead.
  5. It has been a while, but that is the school life for you. Managed to finally finish off the last of my Sylvaneth, unfortunately this means i have no more excuses and need to begin basing them. As you can see I had a little AoS painting break, but honestly the Visarch could totally fit in a fantasy elf army. For what is next for me? well on the the Stormcast allies for my tree people. I will either be converting all of them or painting them to look like they have received gifts from Allerial to give a running theme throughout the force. What do you guys think of the wooden shields? I am currently debating whether I should make all of their weapons the glowing blue I have done for the Sylvaneth, but that may be a bit much, thats gonna take some experimenting to figure out. I always enjoy rambling to myself here, so time to get started on the Scythes of Allerial, and basing... I guess. Comments and criticisms as always are welcome.
  6. 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
  7. So I've been through a roller coaster ride since I started this blog. Firstly, my friends bought 40k "Start Collecting" boxes each with the intention of playing again, I followed suit, but the enthusiasm seems to have died as quickly as it sparked. Then I purchased a faulty primer spray from an LGS where I play Magic, which set me back a week and covered my kitchen in Chaos Black! Then after my SCE finally got primed, I painted a test model for Celestial Vindicators. By paint I mean I base coated and shaded the armour. I wasn't very happy with the model at all, a combination of a non-basic colour scheme and my lack of recent painting experience made for a bit of a messy first try. I wasn't looking for Golden Demon, but I wanted to feel happy with what I produced. Then I found the series on Warhammer TV of a step by step painting of the entire AoS starter set. I figured, what did I have to lose? Base coat another Liberator in gold and see where we go. One afternoon of full on hobbying later and I'm here. With 5 Liberator's base coated and washed and I couldn't be happier. Yeah, every man and his dog is going to have a gold SCE army, but who cares? This one is going to be mine. I know these pictures are really not anything to write home about but it made me happy to actually make some progress I'm satisfied with. Going to throw some Auric Armour Gold (as instructed by Duncan!) tomorrow and build up some of the other models from the set. Baby steps people, baby steps.
  8. As time has gone on local gamers come up with funny comments and thoughts. One day I was at my local game store and referred to myself as the Sixth Lord of Chaos. How can I make this claim without a firm foot in the Chaos Aliance. So the starting point for my journey is going to be a Murderfist Clan. The list is full of hammers and anvils. Let me know your thoughts on the list, and I will keep you up to date on the build, painting, and playing. Here we go...

  9. Just a small update on my first bit of painting progress. The screamers were a nice simple model to assemble with only four pieces but the kit has enough options to really vary the different daemons you get in it. I initially went for a marine predator feel with subtle shades of blue but they looked rather bland so I've blended (well attempted to) the dorsal fins and spines with purples to add more Tzeentch vibrancy. The blending still needs a bit more work and I think I'll have to do the underside spines a little as you can see them on the flight base. I'm undecided on leaving the eyes pupil-less or not, I like the idea of a serpent like eye but they currently remind me of the sentinels from the matrix with just a red glow.
  10. Ok, so I maaaaay have forgotten to post my regular updates as However, I managed to get a game in last week in the local GW against a Freeguild Aelves alliance - really interesting force that I'm looking forward to see how it grows. The game was a proper back and forth affair, and I just managed to seal the win, thanks to my Crypt Ghast courtier unhorsing his general in an honorable joust. Or at least, that's what the Courtier saw from his point of view! I snapped a quick photo of the army post game. Really pleased with how the force is shaping up as a whole now. Continuing on with the theme of the courts and their deluded visions of grandeur, I converted up my Courtier to represent a knight leading the lowly men at arms to battle. Ser Retch Gribbleskin, Champion of the Crimson Vale: I quite like the idea that the courtier's madness has progressed to such a degree that he visualises everything from the trophy on his back's perspective, unaware that he's essentially acting as his own mount. I toyed with the idea of giving the skeleton a mask or draping a tattered cloth over the ghoul, similar to how the Bretonnian horses were garbed for war. However, in the end I think leaving it relatively blank and letting you fill in the blanks yourself adds something to the model overall. I'd also been toying around with how I could add something to the standard ghouls to make them a little more unsettling. I toyed with the idea of giving them all masks, but I quite like the idea of the masks being a conceit for the heroes of the force. So instead, I grabbed a few Goblin Town goblins i had lying around, did a few quick weapon swaps, added some greenstuff and the result is shown below! I quite like the idea that Neferata can't bear the sight of these foul creatures faces, and will only bear their presence if they hide their faces with elaborate courtly masks. Of course, the lowly peasants can't afford such highborn trinkets, so they are reduced to hiding their faces with mirrored masks - the better to reflect their queens beauty. Mirror, Mirror, on the Ghoul... The banner was an opportunity to practice an idea I've had rattling around for some time. It's a bit overwrought for a unit of blood thirsty cannibals, but I can always say its a magical banner reflecting an element of their delusions into the real world! The next Blog post should hopefully drop next week. I'm aiming to grab the Deathrattle start collecting box for Neferata and to convert up a unit of blood knights - again i'll be playing with the deluded nature of the flesh eaters so hopefully the result wont be what you expect! All going well I'll also have an update on my Golden Demon plans for this year - I think I've finally settled on my Age of Sigmar entries for the single miniature and the unit - watch this space! I'll leave you with a few close ups of the Crypt Hauter courtier and the necromancer for my force. The necromancer forms the core of my AOS28 force, along with the troupe of mirrored ghouls. I plan on adding a black coach in the near future to his band of performers - he needs some way of transporting his flayed skin big top after all!
  11. I bought myself Gorechosen for Taxsmas (a traditional American gift giving holiday that occurs around February or April or whenever you get your tax returns), and decided that I would try out LAVA BASES!!! I wouldn't post this tutorial unless I thought I'd come up with something I hadn't seen elsewhere. After doing my research, I found a bunch of advice for doing lava, but nobody doing the super easy thing I had been envisioning, so I tried it, it worked, and I figured I'd share it with the world. Step 1: Put your model on the base, trace out where you want your lava floes to go. I'm leaving flat spots on the base for this guy's feet, but you can do whatever you want for that (I think it depends heavily on the model). Here are my traced out lava floes and spots for feet. Nothing too wild and crazy or inspired, just some rivers of molten rock. Step 2: Glue down sand everywhere you didn't outline. Basically, we're putting sand anywhere we don't want LAVA! (or feet, feet are good too). I just took this picture so you'd know what you're even looking at. Which in this case is a headless Slaughterpriest. Step 3: Paint the lava. I started with Wild Rider Red (which is really a nice red-orange). This is the first step where I'm doing something kind of original, it is very important that we paint a wide margin of the sand with the Wild Rider Red, because this is going to get us a cool glowing lava effect later. Step 4: Fairly straightforward progression, we're going to paint the center of the lava flow with a brighter orange. I'm still using a pot of Fiery Orange that's probably 10 years old, but I think the newer GW color that compares to it is probably Troll Slayer or Fire Dragon Orange). Step 4.5: Continue to highlight the center of the lava, I used Yriel Yellow. Step 5: Paint the sand black. I've separated this into two steps. First, paint everything that isn't orange with Abbadon Black. Step 5.5: Then, drybrush Abbadon Black over the rest of the sand. Step 6: Drybrush the black parts of the sand with Dawnstone (dark grey) to make it look kind of ashen. And you're done! Here's another finished one below. The WIP Slaughterpriest standing on it (the flash on my camera is really bringing out the Wild Rider Red on this one, it isn't nearly this harsh in real life) This is the only one I've finished so far, so this is what the finished product looks like (this pic looks more like real life, probably because it's just well lit and has no flash). Last but not least, here are some related ideas I tried out when experimenting, first one with cork basing on the White Dwarf Slaughterpriest. And then the Damsel of Distress, who I wanted to match aesthetically, but had already been fully based. I just painted the lava colors in a few spots here and there, and then drybrushed the sand black to taste.
  12. Hey guys. It's been a while since I've painted anything or even taken pics for games so I'm making this post to help me keep track of exactly that. My Ironjawz are called Da' Black Hand of Kaz'gul and I had largely considered them being complete until now. I picked up a megaboss on foot by impulse and decided to paint him up tonight. The base is still drying!
  13. So a minor painting update, I have been swamped at school and am on my reading week, so I have only managed to get some base colours on my Treelord Ancient. I am thinking of making his claws ghostly to match the other Sylvaneths' weapons as i want his staff to be a vibrant flower. I am currently on my march break, and while you'd think that would give me more free time to paint, alas I am visiting family and all my paints are back at my apartment. On the upside though, I have finished building my Paladins, really pleased with how this conversion turned out, surprisingly easy, if incredibly expensive if I didn't already have the bits lying around. especially pleased with the Prime, go the idea for a wooden arm from the campaign book where the lady of the vines replaces a Stormcasts hand. This means not only does the conversion look cool, it also has fluff precedent. I am hoping I will be able to finish painting my Treelord Ancient and my 3 remaining Hunters before my exams start, but its going to be one hell of a rush to the end of the school year. (Spirit of Durthu for reference for what the Ancient will kind of look like once I am done)
  14. Hi all Looking to begin a small Ironjawz force. The faces and chests of the models seem quite obscured by the armour so I though of leaving the chest plates off of the models first and painting the flesh before completing the build. Only worry is that there will be visible gaps/lines once I put the armour on and I'm not sure how to fill those gaps having already primed and started painting. Any ironjawz hobbyists care to offer some advice. Thanks in advance!
  15. Daemonic reinforcements have arrived to the corrupted spires of the Mireguard, with still more on the way. Joining the ranks of the Horned Legion are the maliciously adorable Nurgle Chaos Furies (kitbashed) and the pustulant plague bearer horde. Keep your eyes open in the coming weeks. More is on the way in the coming weeks as well!
  16. Hello! New member here. Long time player of warhammer fantasy now AoS. After some time playing other miniature games while the End Times dust settled I finally committed myself to begin a new army in AoS (I know, I dragged my feet a little bit). My hobby group is fast approaching our next grow league and since I am a fairly slow painter I wanted to get a head start! Here are my first 5 liberators. Let me know what you think or if you have any questions! I always try to push myself with every new army I paint and do feel this is my best work to date, so be gentle. I would also like to shout out this forum, while this is my first post I have been lurking on here for quite some time. Great community, huge inspiration (some of the painters and sculptors on here are incredible!) just a wonderful place to get in touch with the hobby. Thanks for looking. -Eric
  17. So this is what I have painted so far. Basing is obviously to come. I could lie and say i was waiting until i was finished so that it would be unifying, but frankly I have no idea what I want to do for it yet, so bare they stay. I have three Hunters and a Treelord Ancient left to paint, then it is on to my stormcast, test conversion for the paladins has also been included, pretty pleased with how it turned out. CC very welcome along with good basing ideas.
  18. FLGS running a slow grow and was planning on running death for it and painted up these guys. Now having a wobble though so might be switching to chaos.
  19. Hello all, I am introducing a new painting log today where the work shared is everyones who wishes to take part. The main idea behind this is that you commit each month to painting a set amount of models and at the end of the month you post your progress and a little blurb on how you did. This is a great little way to get everyone painting more, sharing pictures and building our already fantastic community. I will post a thread each month with the date in the title and people can commit until the 15th of the month. after that the last three days of the month will be for posting pictures, progress shots and discussion. This is a great way to track each others progress and get tips and advice from the community so dont be shy and get involved! Mohojoe's January commitment: I commit to paint Ogre tyrant 3x leadbelchers Leadblaster cannon I am starting off light in January as I have a very busy month with uni hand ins and work. This is the basis of my tournament army for march so I need to make some progress on what I have before I can buy any more models. I also predict that the Leadblaster cannon is going to be tricky to paint and may take me longer than anticipated. Anyway thats mine, I look forward to seeing what the rest of you want to get done!
  20. Hi all, This will be my magical place for posting updates of my current painting mumbo jumbo. Hope this will motivate me to paint in more regular fashion Main subjects of my brush strokes are going to be those blood Khorne Bloodbound guys. So this week I have been mostly doing bases and undercoating on: - 20 Bloodreavers, - Bloodstoker - Slaughterpriest - Aspiring Deathbringer And this one big fella for a friend of mine: His base is already modeled and everything is undercoated. Goal for today is to paint the entire base and start off with wing or hopefully two We will see how it will pan out in couple of hours Will follow GW painting guide by https://twitter.com/ICantThinkEm not to the letter, as I have few alternatives in mind Regards Malin
  21. If you've stumbled onto this blog after plumbing the depths of the TGA community, welcome! You've tried the best, now try the rest! Little background for you before we get started. I've been actively involved in the hobby for the past 15 years. I first got hooked in on the Lord of the Rings back when the two towers was first released. Some of you might remember the fortnightly magazine series that came with the figures and paints - I learned a huge amount of my early hobby skills from those, and only ventured into my local GW after maybe two years of painting my burgeoning collection. Fast forward and I've now tried my hand at every game system and most armies for each. My main focus had revolved around 40k for a number of years. I fell out of love with Warhammer fantasy after the shift to 8th edition - I found the size of armies too daunting a task to paint, and my focus would always have been of a more painterly interest. However, the more free form of AOS drew me right back in. I dusted off my old empire armies, picked up where i'd left off on my elves (new and improved with vitamin A!) and dived right back in. Thankfully the game has gone from strength to strength in my local scene, so I've now got a reason to get my painting projects completed and onto the table. Which is where this blog comes in Last year I managed to start and fully paint a small flesh eater court force. This year, as part of my hobby resolutions, I want to expand that out to a full 2000 point force, with a view to taking it along to the Age of Sigmar 6 Nations in June as part of the Republic of Ireland Team. So to aid me in that, I'll be trying to keep an up to date blog with all my progress, stories of my games, and any other relevant hobby goodness I find relevant or diverting. A lot of my projects will start off after I latch onto a theme, or I'm intrigued by a story, and the background of the flesh eaters really grabbed my attention. I loved the idea that these "noble knights" were really slobbering mangy monsters. Picture a ghoul trying to curtsey, and you're on the right track for the ideas swirling around in my head. I also loved the idea of a really viscious swarm of monsters charging across the tabletop, similar to how vampires have been shown in things like Van Helsing or the zombies in World War Z. So I began to think what would make these horrible ghouls and monsters even creepier? Put them in clown masks of course! The eventual end point of the force would be based on a court of Neferata's admirers and courtiers (or so they would believe). However, the only way she would tolerate their loathsome "affections" is if they hid their hideous faces behind stylised masks. So with that theme in mind, all the heroes within my force have their faces hidden behind venetian style masks. The most recent part I've managed to complete for the force is the terrorgheist - a model I'd always wanted to build and paint, but never had the cause to. While i'm not sure I'd want to build another one, I'm really happy with how the beast turned out, and I'm now planning a conversion for the zombie dragon that my Crypt Lord will ride - I must be a glutton for punishment! I think that will suffice for now. As I say I'll try my best to stick with one project at a time - My hobby resolution this year is to finish more stuff than I start. What could possibly go wrong? ......ah.....
  22. Sooooo then..... this happened!... As we are all aware the awesome new lord of change mini is close to release now, and as soon as the first leaked pics hit the interwebs I was in love. My dastardly work colleague Martin decided to use this as an oppertunity to bully me into another age of sigmar project as I rather lost momentum on my last one sadly, and to be honest it didint take too much bullying. Ive had a pretty big Tzeentch daemon army sat in boxes for years now and they have always been one of my first wargaming loves ever since flicking through my brothers copy of the lost and and damned when I was little, so I have decided to dust them off and try to get back into gaming via Martins narative campaign ideas. Couple of Horrors I painted 10 or so years ago! The first step to this is to actually paint stuff though! Being a commission painter by trade you wouldnt think this would be a big issue, but oddly I dont think I have had a painted army of my own for about 10+ years, so who knows how far I'll get with this one. Hopefully blogging and such will give me more motivation to do my own hobby instead of everyone elses! So every new army needs a leader, and with the lord of change not being released yet, plus the fact that it would probably stall my painting straight away if I tried to paint one first I've gone for the sensible option of a Herald instead. I wasnt actually keen on this model at first, he was just a left over from a burning chariot kit however hes grown on me a lot over the years. I decided to try to paint a little out of my usualy grungy dank earthy painting zone with plenty of bright rich colours, although my bad habits and comfort techniques quickly snuck in and desaturated things quite a bit. Still happy with the final results though. More coming soon hopefully! I've got some stuff thats already finished but if I drop all the pics at once then I'll have to actually paint new things instead of doing work! -Hotdrop Gary
  23. I fancied painting something different from what I'd been doing recently so pulled a thundertusk out my 'to do' pile. As as it happens I was watching (well listening) to game 5 of the GE heat 1 and enjoying rob talk on the high skill required to use these finesse beasts as I painted it.
  24. I've recently come back to the hobby and getting into AoS. I already have a lot of daemons and Chaos stuff that could be used in any game system. I wanted to see if I could match in my Khorne stuff with the herd. I also want to know what you think about this first test model. There are still a couple of things left to do btw, like a final extreme highlight on the yellow weathering and some blood work etc.
  25. Continuing to paint more fluffy units to use with my TK. Vampire lord on abyssal terror, what 4x move on buffed necroserpents is fluffy...
