The Troggoth Hag is definitely a piece I believe every Troggoth army needs. It's amazing as a model and amazing on the table.
I rarely do such detailed eyes and faces but when working on a model that is the centrepiece of your army you want to spend some extra time just to make it special. This is surely the best work I have ever done on a models face and I think there is just a lot of character and emotion on the model.
My smaller Troggoths are just green and blue but for t
The first AoS army I started was a mixture of skaven and beastmen. Since acquiring Warcry, I can now add a chaos contingent.
Matorea requires nothing less than many antagonists to test its metal over and over. Here will be 2490 pts of angry creatures ready to wallop the order forces and then each other when it’s done.
So, been a couple of weeks and quite a bit of progress on the stonehorns. I have pictured the paints used in the photos, the leathers have been done with Zandri dust, Skrag brown, Mournfang brown, Baneblade brown, Dryad bark and Steel legion drab, washed with agrax and layered back up,the browns still need an edge highlight. Quite happy with the results. The Hoofs and bone trophy racks are a traditional method of zandri dust, agrax, ushabti bone, and still need to a layer of screaming skull and
So, that Slaanesh news, huh?
After reading broken realms, I decided to finish my squad of chaos warriors. I'm glad I did, coz those painbringers manifest the exact aesthetic I've been trying to recreate.
My slaanesh project kinda sputtered to a halt, mixture of life stuff and losing enthusiasm on such a mortal-lite roster. Well, that's changed now. I'm kinda glad, because now I have many WiP mortal models I can finish before 2021.
I guess the only thing now is to rename the mortal
Just finished this little holiday special from GW. Really had a lot of fun painting him and a few nice places where I could challenge myself a bit like the face and beer window. I really think this is some of my finest work I have never been really good at painting realistic skin/faces but I think it came out great on this little guy.
I've started around ten armies before, in all sorts of games, but I've never so much as finished a unit of anything before moving on. Until now!
I came back to the hobby just before lockdown 1 hit this year, and it's genuinely been the best thing that isn't my cat through some very dark times. I picked up individual models from Age of Sigmar and 40k, but didn't love painting Ogors and Space Marines, and kept chasing the meta a little bit which resulted in some uninspiring hordes of plastic
After diving into Tzeentch, both Mortals and Daemons and having played the Army for some time now, I figured I would write a guide for people looking to start the army in 2020 and possibly into 2021, due to a few people on TGA asking the best way to start the army.
This is being written just as the Broken Realms: Morathi book has been released, no Dec FAQ being released and no extra cool rules in the Broken Realms series that will ultimately see Tzeentch get somethin
My LGS started a slow grow league for AoS and I decided to join up with up Kharadron Overlords. I have had the models for this army for a while now but never got up to painting them. Now with the arrival of my airbrush and this league I hope I can keep up with the 250 points a month goal. My list for the first month is an Aether Khemist and 5 Grundstock Thunderers. Because Grimdark is the trend right now I decided to try playing around with it myself with this army going for a very worn down loo
Right up front it is worth acknowledging that the tournaments I played these two armies in were structured very differently. Blisterskin was played in an Escalation based tournament that started at 1K and went to 2K in 250 pt increments. Guild of Summoners was played in a three match tournament where you had a fixed 1.25K list and got an extra 250 points to customize to the battleplan and match up. That said I think there were some key takeaways regarding what works and what doesn’t when play
A recent WiP I've been doing, a cool little khinerae hero for my DoK who will have a chariot to drive around on (when she's too lazy to fly)
I'm also hoping to make her able to be mounted on foot as well for smaller point games
My intent had been to track all the Zoom League games we’d been playing but found that I either had time to play the games or write about them afterwards and, unsurprisingly, chose the former.
But with our third Zoom tournament kicking off next week I thought I would check back in and provide a broad update.
The first Zoom League tournament was a Death & Destruction Escalation League that pitted Ironjawz against Boulderhead and Blisterskin. We started at 1K and with 250 point incr
T1I outdrop and let him go first
Nothing much going on here aside from him giving me about 5 FP and sending out Geminids. I made sure all my Wizards would be out of range, but the Kairics on the right were wiped out in shooting from the 3 Salamanders that teleported.
My turn has the Terradons brought down to 4 remaining while the Salamanders get taken down to 1 (well, 4 models with Skinks). Miscellaneous Skink deaths in the middle and right via shootin
So, been a busy week with hobby progress, got quite a bit done, nothing completed but progress made. Hope you all enjoy.
First off, my other two boxes arrived from just play games, I would highly recommend them for purchases, Great prices, fast delivery and fantastic communication.
Couldnt resist the chance to take a full army picture. After it was all built and sprayed black.
Bases Sprayed and ready for paint
The rocks were painted using mechanicum standard grey, an
So, A few months ago I was listening to the Just play podcast when Ian was talking about his heat 1 mawtribes army, and the idea of a small model count army appealed to me. I currently have a Legions of Nagash army which includes Nagash and 80 skeletons, A stormcast army including many wings, Nighthaunt and my pride and joy, the Kharadron Overlords. So fast forward a few months and I decided to bite the bullet, I got 1 start collecting box from a friend when he had only used a couple of the garg
Some of you probably heard about wonderful AoS campaign, Animosity - two months of great hobby content, narrative building, backstabbing. Today is the last day of small sub-campaign "Root of all Evil", inspired by Turnip28. In this Halloween campaing each plyer created a warband that tries to prevent (or not) destruction of small shyishian city Bolyany by cursed turnips and other horrors during the paranormal event called Mallusnacht. Each submitted painted miniature, battle report and work of a
A small army of ghouls sat around a recently constructed camp, thin, pale figures in the distance feasting on blood red corpses. Flesh eating degenerates, their presence answered any questions Caith could have about why the scouting party they were out searching for had not returned. His town's colors laid on the ground, green and black heraldry strewn about next to damaged weapons.
"Alarielle's breeze…" Caith cursed, the aelf taking his eye from his telescope and turning to Luz, "P
It turns out that small children made a mockery of even my modest painting goals. However! Like the Stormcast themselves, I persevered in the face of noisome opposition and recently managed to complete a small expeditionary force of the Dawn Arcus. The models have been painted for some time but I've finally managed to base them out.
These were the models where I finally learned not to be scared of edge highlighting and Just Did It. That said, while I might not be scared of it any longer, it
He outdrops me and elects me to go first
I manage to get 9 FP and kill the Starpriest via a Blue Scribes 2+ roll on the portal and the Slann failing to unbind Gift of Change. I put the Chaos Spawn within range of the Carnosaur and both Knights units, but it ended up dying from the Carno.
On his turn, the Slann does 3 MW's to the Changecaster and 1 to the Scribes with Comets call, otherwise everything just moves up a bit.
3-3 Tie end of t1 T2
Finished up a set of phoenix guard and related heroes / champions recently. 29 models in total, certainly the most I've ever painted in a single batch... some fatigue when I got to all the gems! The units span 3 generations (4ED / 6ED / 8ED WHFB) and are irregular sizes because I cribbed them together from eBay lots, but as display units I love all their sculpts (even the old ones)!
Bonus: three heroes (Anointed, Caradryan and a generic hero with sword and shield) ready to lead the charge!
T1deployment He outdrops me and goes first.
He runs almost everything up to the center of the table, except for the 2 Runesons who are actually able to reach my Kairic Acolyte units on the right side, killing them and 3 Pink's.
On my turn, I use a combined 6 with DD to cast Balewind and the Scribes rolls a 2 to cast Spellportal. I then use another combined 6 to get off Daemonrift which crashes into both Runesons doing 10 MW's to one (after being bla
I finished these guys really quickly compared to everything else I have painted lately. I went for the color scheme I used on my first chaos army back in 2003 as a throwback to my Warhammer roots. I had a lot of fun painting them aside from the green scale thing and the super old ones I had in my bits box. The hunchback one was made from several broken guys I had from when I started way back when. The sorcerer was a quick paint last night. He was one of those models I always wanted but neve
I have been working on these guys for a while now and I am happy to say they are done. The pinks and blues are brighter than my older ones and don’t have the varnish on them but I am fine with the way they are. The two units of pinks I have are on different size bases( I think my first set was an old 40K box before they introduced the 32mm bases). It is not much of a bother and I doubt I will use all 21 of them at once. I also got the slaves to darkness starter and I love the new sculpts esp
It's been a bit since I've added more Bonereapers, and that's because of 40K. As you can see, Necrons have pulled me back in.
I'll be back to my bone guys soon, but at least I'm working on something!
Hi all! Been about a month or so, so time for a quick update.
Hobby has been progressing quite nicely on all fronts. Finished off the hurricanum, invested in some contrast paints and vallejo basing paste (huge fan), and binge-watched tons of youtube painting videos. Also had a bit of a change of heart with the list and so I'm now going for an elf-centric Tempest Eye build.
Overall pretty pleased with this. Easily the most complex painting project I've taken on so
