  1. Hello folks and welcome to the Painting Contract for February 2018! If you don't know the rules they are: Each month you post an amount of models that you agree to try to paint/build/convert/sculpt. This can be terrain, models, Warhammer Quest Silver Tower/ Shadows Over Hammerhal, Blood Bowl or Shadespire as well as AoS of course. On the 28th of the month the contract closes and you can then post your progress images so that they can be critiqued, shared and boasted about. It is a great way to get involved in the community and to get inspiration. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone share their progress! Enjoy! @Mohojoe & @TheOtherJosh
  2. Smooth sand ripple basemaking

    Hi all! I am starting to get decently swept into painting a bulk of my Tzeentch army. To go with that shimmering magic blue, I’m looking to create gold smooth desert bases in the same spirit as these. My guess is, I need to for the finest sand I can find but I’m not quite sure how to obtain that ripple effect. My first thought is to use green stuff, but I remember having trouble back in the day to create decently sharp edges in green stuff. So, how would you go about it?
  3. The Warhammer Community article on Malign Portents mentions a community paint along that will be happening across the world and I thought it might be fun to have a rolling TGA Community post for. Having already been planning a new army for the New Year, as I suspect many of us are, I thought that this could be excellent motivation if other people were interested... If not, it'll just be me on my own I guess The Community Site article can be found here and I think it's almost certainly going to be the same as the new White Dwarf A Tale of Four Warlords article: https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/01/04/malign-portents-the-time-is-nighgw-homepage-post-1/ With the specific wording: We want to make sure that by the time the Malign Portents are fully revealed, everyone has an army to face the coming tide of darkness with. To that end, we’re inviting you to take part in a worldwide muster over the next few months. By following along with each step, you’ll have a fighting force worthy of the challenges to come. For your first challenge, we’re asking you to paint a Start Collecting! set of your choice. Perhaps all this talk of Death has you wanting a Deathrattle skeleton horde of your own, or maybe you fancy ransacking the realms with an army of Ironjawz. Every Warhammer and Games Workshop store around the world will be joining in (and there may even be some prizes on offer), giving you the chance to show off your newly recruited host. If you don’t live near a store, don’t worry – you can follow along with the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Facebook page. You’ll be able to showcase the first part of your army on the 10th of February, where we’ll also be announcing what you need to paint to join in with the next stage of the muster. My only amendment to the above, will be that you can paint the equivalent of a Start Collecting Box, if your army does not have one, or if you prefer not to use the pre-built boxes. This would normally be at least a battleline unit, a character and a specialist unit, but I think, as this should work for you, the painter and collector of the army, then whatever you think is appropriate. So, having received a reasonable haul of Stormcast Eternal Vanguard Hunters for Christmas and in lieu of a Start Collecting Box , I will aim to paint: 1 x Lord Castellant 1 x Gryph-hound 5 x Vanguard-Hunters 3 x Vanguard-Raptors with longstrike crossbows 3 x Aetherwings I hope others are interested and I look forward to seeing what this community can do!
  4. Blightwar all Done!

    After my bout with real life disease I have actually finished the whole of the Nurgle half of the Blightwar during my recovery. I managed Horticulux, the ten Plaguebearers, three Nurglings and three Plague Drones, and I have managed to throw in a Feculent Gnarlmaw as well just for fun. I'm going to take them down to the Rotherham GW store tomorrow for the Malign Portents painting competition. As part of my #365challenge I was wondering how close I have been getting to having at least one of each Maggotkin Unit. I'm well on the way to achieving this, although my issue will be finding the funds for two Great Unclean Ones and also getting two more of the Maggot Lords. Here are the Plague Drones in their finished state: So I took these down to the Games Workshop in Rotherham today for the first month of the Malign Portents painting competition. I was impressed with the quality of the other entries. Having been down for Armies on Parade and other events I haven't been blown away by the standard, but this seemed to be a little better. There was a very nice Moonclan Grot force, some good looking Khorne and Ironjawz forces. Month 2 is a Harbinger so I'd better pick up the Darkoath Warqueen!

  6. With the new Nurgle releases I've been inspired to dust off some mothballed Nurgle units I've had lying around for some time and with that I figured a painting blog would be fun. Here are the models I currently have which I will be painting up in the coming months. Glottkin 10 Plaguebearers Herald of Nurgle 3 Nurglings 3 Plague drones Gutrot Spume Lord Of Plagues 10 Blight Kings For once in my life I will do my best to avoid going out and buying a bunch of new models and then succumb to some sort of painting depression brought on by having a seemingly insurmountable heap of models to paint (fingers crossed) So I intend to paint everything I have above before getting a new and juicy Great Unclean One for instance. I'm a very casual gamer but I do enjoy a game or two with friends so I thought I'd start painting things in an order that would allow me to start fielding the army as soon as possible. So I'm thinking I will try out a 1000 pts army containing Glottkin, Gutrot, 10 Blight kings and 10 Plaguebearers. I suspect this is probably a pretty bad list so if you have suggestions on other list made with the above units I'd love to hear about it. Now enough talk and let's start of with the first pics of the blog: I started off with Nurglings because I wanted to get a feel for the painting scheme I will be using for the green flesh on my Plaguebeares and my Glottkin: For the skin I started off with Ogryn Camo which I followed up with a recess shade of Biel-Tan Green. Then after a glaze of Waywatcher Green I layered Ogryn Camo back on (here it helps to thin your paint with Lahmian medium to make it easier to get a smooth result) then I added Flayed One Flesh to the Ogryn Camo mix to smooth highlights on open areas of the skin like the top of the head, shoulders etc. Finally I did a finer edge highlight of Flayed One Flesh. Next up will be five of the Blight Kings so stay tuned for that =)
  7. Hey everyone, recently i'm working on a 2000 points list of skaven skryre, so since it's about a lot of gunny, crazy models, i thought it would've been good to get some feedback about the project! Tonight i finished building up and painting an old Warplightning Cannon i had already finished; but since i'm not too fond of the weird triangular "structure" they based the whole model around, i just turned some bits around, so that it would look more like this.. It still needs the whole crew, and it has to be based. Anyways, i'd love to hear what you think of it, and since i'll have to re-base a lot of models, i'll probably be uploading quite some pics through these days, but the real wip and paint fun should be a bit ahead, like two or three weeks from now. Hope you like this first conversion anyways! I add that i've just completely made up the name, like right now, and i don't have any idea about the background, so, i'll be trying to write something down asap
  8. So in order to avoid me spamming the malign portents tale of ?? With all my project photos I have instead decided to make a topic to share my painstaking tribal themed daughters of khaine conversions with you all! These are trying to be designed with both being a fun army project and also a first forray into AoS28 with some of them, trying to capture character and a bit of a dark edge in the girls (painting is gonna make all the difference I think) Anyway without further ado here are the girls so far!!
  9. Recently I participated in a 1 day event just as the new Maggotkin of Nurgle dropped. I used the book, but my army was still pretty much the mish-mash of Demons and Rotbringers made feasible by GHB2017. Leading my army, as in times before the battletome was Morgo, my Great Unclean One. He fell in the final game of the tournament under an onslaught of Korgorath in a blighted wood nestled in a forgotten valley. His mission was accomplished despite his banishment, so Grandfather Nurgle (and I) decided that he should be regrown into a new vessel, and to be unleashed once more upon the mortal realms...
  10. Hello everyone, I've been lurking here for a short while, watching all painting and modelling threads. Slowly trying to stay motivated and keep paiting, I've had lot of trouble finishing units/models, this year however it got a little better. Firstly, here are my first 3 stormcasts out of 5, but after number 3 I ran out of motivation. All 3 separately and family photo. Secondly my 3 Screamers, I experimented a lot on them, mainly with the horns, which I painted for the first time, still not sure how to do them. First is the Alpha screamer, then other 2 and family photo Next I'm onto painting a blood warrior, hopefully I'll have some photos soon. Any comments are greatly appreciated
  11. Heyo! I'll be using this thread to document my progress as I convert, kitbash, and paint my way through however many hordes of Skaven the Great Horned Rat ask of me. First up is the chainsaw-slingin' yet-to-be-named and properly painted, Arch-Warlock. He's rocking parts from genestealer cults, skitaari, and Ironjawz. I am very unsure on what his color scheme should be, so any suggestions on where to go from here is very welcome
  12. Hey there folks! So I've had a bit of hobby block recently with My Age of Sigmar order army. I'm building a mixed army using the Hammerhal allegiance, though it is a free city of my own design using the Warhammer community free city builder(https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/09/26/make-your-own-free-city-the-easy-way-sep26gw-homepage-post-4/) . But I just can't seem to think of how to put things together, especially since order is made of so many factions broken up and after seeing images of Chris Peach's Hallowguild and Duncan Rhodes' Solakian Guard (https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/10/04/converting-your-own-free-city-oct-4gw-homepage-post-3/), I would very much like to make my army look more 'Age of Sigmar' than Warhammer fantasy. I'm not sure how to achieve this though with the newer kits looking so much better and in some cases slightly larger scale than the old ones. I would like to ask how you guys have converted or painted up your armies in age of sigmar, please post images if you can! It would be awesome to see everyone's work Also apologies for my bad writing skills, it really isn't my forte!
  13. 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
  14. Please post pictures of the leaders of your army, along with their story, tales of their endeavours and tales of their follies...
  15. Hi everyone, I'm hoping the community can help me out a bit here. I got an airbrush for Christmas, and I'd like to start using it, but I'm a bit nervous about getting started. Can anyone recommend some resources for someone looking to learn airbrushing? Mainly looking for beginner resources, but really any resources are appreciated.
  16. Cheeky Nurglings

    These were a fun little speed paint. The Nurglings were primed Caliban green and then zenithal sprayed with Deathguard green. I then dry brushed them quickly with a mix of Organ Camo and White before glazing the whole model with Waywatcher Green. This gives a really nice vivid green colour. I then went back in and washed the recesses with Athonina Camo Shade and Nuln Oil. I did all the eyes, mouths etc at this stage too. Once this was dry I painted the tongues with screamer pink and then watered down a mix of screamer pink and wild rider red which I used for all the sores. All of these got washed with Drucji Violet. Blood for the Blood God went on all the sores and they were highlighted with white to make them look glossy. Horns were Rakarth Flesh and a quick highlight with Palyd Whych Flesh which I also used for the teeth (just a careful dry brush with very little paint on the brush). The most time consuming part was dotting all the eyes with yellow. One thing I did with these was not to base them. I usually use the cork bark for the bases, but because of how these models are made I didn't want to do this as they wouldn't sit flat on the bark well, so I went back to the traditional way of sanding afterwards and then brush painting the base. This is very annoying! I will try not to do this again. It is much easier to make the bases first and then attach the models to them. When you get a somewhat dubious looking join you can just go in with the foliage and use this to cover up any of the gaps that you may ave left.
  17. Hullo folks. I am hopefully on the path to rounding up my slipshod Nurgle Army before I move onto the new Sky Dwarves, so I fancied collecting the various photos I'd taken into one place (everyone else has a plog!) as well as ask for some advice on where to go next. I only got back into the hobby at the start of 2017, after a 10 year leave of absence (although I didn't particularly paint much before) and so painting is pretty new to me. There are a lot of places to go for great advice, including GWs own videos. But I want my dwarves to look top notch, and I think that means levelling up my technique a little. So I want to know what the best advice you have is. I find that I have the most trouble with gradual blends or colour fades the most. I have recently invested in some Lahmian Medium, and also 2 Windsor and Newton 7 Series brushes for details (they really are excellent), and for my Dwarves I have kind of planned my palette and basing style in my head. So yeah, Criticism and Feedback on stuff would be very appreciated, as well as links to videos or blogs on technique and style. I think due to work and uni I have been a little impatient in some instances so I know that has led to some errors, but specific advice would be welcome (unless it links to that Next Level Painting guy. as good as his stuff can be his voice and demeanour just ruins me. On to the photos! This is the whole bunch, so far, shelved. I don't have close ups of the drones yet: My initial 3 heroes. Order of Completion was Lord of Plagues, Herald of Nurgle, Lord of Chaos My Blightkings, which I am proudest of, by far., but I am not too happy with some of the bruising. Chaos Sorcerer which was done recently as a reward for shifting a metric tonne of essays out of my way (this one appears to have been hit by some bad compression?) As per the other thread, this is my WIP Epidemus. I didn't actually buy this myself, it was a gift from some friends so It has taken a lot of psyching up to paint because the detail is intimidating and granular, which I find quite different from the regular GW plastic cast heavy contrast detail. (Apologies for messy thumbnail) I'll try and sort a lightbox or at least a proper white background for the things I haven't got proper pictures of: Warriors, Plaguebearers and Plague Drones. I think I have at least, with Nurgle, managed to attack a variety of different textures and techniques, some better than others, but would still be curious for advice! Thanks!
  18. Hello folks and welcome to the Painting Contract for January 2018! If you don't know the rules they are: Each month you post an amount of models that you agree to try to paint/build/convert/sculpt. This can be terrain, models, Warhammer Quest Silver Tower/ Shadows Over Hammerhal, Blood Bowl or Shadespire as well as AoS of course. On the 28th of the month the contract closes and you can then post your progress images so that they can be critiqued, shared and boasted about. It is a great way to get involved in the community and to get inspiration. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone share their progress! Enjoy! Mohojoe & TheOtherJosh
  19. Hi Guys! I figured I would post some pics of my first Witch Elf I painted up as a test model. I absolutely loved painting this fig! The sculpt was awesome, super clean and dynamic posing! This is the first female model I have ever painted and would love to hear some feedback as this will be the army that I begin painting up this year for the tournament circuit. I plan on keeping everything to this standard as I have set a personal goal to win a best painted award at a GT sized event this year. I apologize for the low image quality the camera on my phone is total ******. -CB
  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. Turragor's Progress

    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.
  22. So finally finished (besides her base) the horse mounted version of my vampiric big boss Cassia. Still not sure on a full name though I'm sure I'll think of something! (Any ideas do let me know!) And of course it wouldn't be Cassia if she wasn't covered in the blood of her victims... She will be getting her inaugural games in tomorrow as we practice for our path to glory firestorm campaign and I will try to post some battle reports here. Hopefully with pictures though most will be unpainted alas... (Sorry, it's a long process!) Anyway here she is in all her gory glory!
  23. Hey everyone, I really love the Bloab Rotspawned paint scheme from GW and wanted to copy it as best as I could. However, I can't find either the paint scheme or a guide on how to do it. Before anyone says anything, I've looked through youtube, Discords, Whatsapp Groups, Facebook etc and haven't had anything but smart answers (no the end times maggoth lord painting video does not include Bloab). I've even contacted GW Customer Support and they said they couldn't give it to me apparently. (It's the white and green paint scheme) Any help is appreciated!
  24. So we're back today with more dynamic death... Deatherizers (okay I'm bad at alliteration) because after painting dragon Cassia the only logical step is to paint her up some blood knight bodyguards right? (10 of these buggers to do...) And of course a neigh neigh horsey riding version of Cassia because I don't always want a dragon riding general... Especially not for our upcoming path to glory / firestorm campaign where the general must be the same in each game! (But I'm totally allowed to field her as a vamp lord or lord on dragon) As you can see this random mounted vampire lady I made a while back works well for cassia (just ignore the slightly smaller nose... Necromantic vampire magic for you...) And you may have noticed this well dressed Cassia doesn't have her dinner all down her well have no fear, once she's finisher I will go mad with the blood technical paint and make her suitably red I'm planning to go ethereal looking with the horsies hence the green for cassias horse and the grey initial coat for a bloodknight. You also get to see Cassia's progression over the course of this evening. (Alsowhat you can't see is one knight has a broken lance... Budget cuts and all... I might try and fix it later but tbh he is easier to transport like this)
