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
Hey there Neckbeards!
So I've been muddling through a number of projects, first of which is my Khorne army, which means a LOT of Bloodreavers. I finished up three more, which means I now have... 41 left to paint... good Lord what am I doing with my life.
On a happier note, I finally mostly finished my Daemon Prince, all I need to do is fill in the gaps with some milliput and paint those spots over which shouldn't take too long.
Overall, I think he looks... ok? He's defi
Can’t wait to put out all the lists for our new tournament format to see if readers can identify the winner in advance and thus test the list vs player hypothesis.
But as I wait thought I’d put out a few thoughts on the threads that I referenced in my last post. As I’ve discussed in previous posts I came to Age of Sigmar from historical war games and a lot of these thoughts fall into the dynamic of “Yes it’s is fantasy but...”
I’d be the first to admit that much of this in the end is
Well, after my declaration of what I had to get on with in my last entry, I decided I needed a centre piece for the stormcast and rather than going for that derpy faced tauralon, I opted for a stardrake. The rider is magnetised at the torso so I can use both options.
I was going to start on some space marine bases this morning but when I went to my loft, which is my boarded out hobby cave, to get some filler that i'm sure I had, I couldnt fin
Oh Boy! After a few weeks off for the Holidays during which I probably spent way too much time reading threads about how bad things supposedly are in Age of Sigmar land (there’s not enough diversity, there’s too much power creep, it’s being neglected, etc.) I am grateful to be back playing and having fun. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of thoughtful posters on all sides of these issues but reading through them in bulk just makes me incredibly grateful to have such a wonderful gaming group
Long time no post.
This time I'm posting a classic conversion of mine, which was inspired by the old marienburg landship forgeworld used to produce.
This great kit was unfortunately long out of production at the time when I started working on this army. Nonetheless I wanted to do a model which paid tribute to it, and a steam tank conversion seemed a ripe candidate (fun fact: the original fluff in WFB for the landship was that it was created as something of a crude imitation of the steam
So I have made abit more progress on the beastclaws, but I have been a hobby butterfly due to getting a set of the Series D brushes for christmas and, they are fantastic for drybrushing.
I thought I was making a good dent in my models to paint list including some terrain, a stompa for my 40k orcs. The one thing I forgot about was my last 2, maybe 3 months worth of the mortal realms subscription.
Anyway, hope you enjoy some pictures of my progress or lack there of......

Happy New Year! Here's to a better 2021
Recently been continuing work on my Cities of Sigmar. Finished the concussors and have begun working on the next centrepiece model, a freeguild general on griffon. I know the original sculpt gets a lot of love but I find its a bit too bulky for my taste.
Enter the magmadroth! I managed to get the kit on ebay for an absolute steal and I think it works pretty well size-wise. Here it is prepped for undercoating.
The base is built usi
Hey there Neckbeards! Welcome to the first segment of Painting for Chumps! Today we'll be looking at a quick and easy method to paint up some tabletop standard Ossiarch Bonereapers models.
A while back, while I was yet in my hobby infancy, I was quite the GW fanboy (weren't we all at some point though?), spending much of my time watching as many of Citadel's video guides as I could get my hands on. It was during this time that I came across this video, a guide on how to make your models lo
One of my conversions for my city of Krakenmund. I always wanted to have a monstrous mermaid-like creature in the army but I'd originally planned to base it on the DoK melusai kit. Instead I realised I had a nurgle nightmare hulk from the gellerpox infected side of the rogue trade kill team box, which had a wonderful tentacled arm. Combined with the top half of a sorceress and some other bits and greenstuff and we get the Sea Witch of Krakenmund.
well, its not been to productive of late, but more progress has been made on the as of yet un-named Beastclaw raiders warband, and mistakes were made......
So, I went to get the bases from the cupboard as I wanted to get them done so I could start attaching the stonehorns as they are a pain in the butt due to them being front heavy. Upon placing them on the table I noticed a bit of an issue with the filler I used.
All apart from 2 bases had large cracks and gaps in them, I
Looks like I haven’t added any pictures for about a year. I’ve got updates to my KO, my Gitz as well as the Warcry box set all done.
First up is my Ironclad which is finally done. The base is still not very secure so I think I’m just gonna superglue it.
Next is some more fleshed out Endrinriggers and Thunderers.
And finally for some Dispossessed allies, my Warden King
For the Gitz I’ve done my Loonboss, some Bounderz and the first mem
A more urbanized area. Decided that since it was Duardin’s defending, it may as well be defending the steam powered generator
This is an actual steam engine. It used to take water in the boiler, heated by a tray with fuel oil in it and it powered a type of anvil with a conveyor belt that is now lost. This was the type of toy from my childhood (where it showed up for Christmas one year years ago (!). Yes , a toy with oil fire and steam. What could go wrong?
Anyways, it’s now scenery on a tab
Krasbog was really hurt. He was happy with the victory and thinking that he should expand his work. Time to bring in his good smashin buddy Shivertooth and his heavier fist while he healed and waited for the bulk of his Squig army to muster.
His plan was dead cunnin. Let Shivertooth maul the Duardin force, bleed himself silly and maybe if he was lucky, find his head rolling down the gutter. Nottin simpler. The survivors of both armies would make a fine bbq while they moved in.
I had a meeting engagement with about 990 pts each of Gloomspite against CoS
Krasbog is the Loonboss on a Squig and General LaTouche is the freeguild General on a griffon.
Time for a proper (if not smaller) bashin. Don’t feel like using the Fort just yet. This will be a vanguard of the mushroom popping squigs of Krasbog. I’ll call it his welcoming committee.
The Rubyville Auxiliaries are going out to meet them. Kind of on the outskirts of town. Some farms and what was a
Trying to get back into the swing of things. I've had the metal slaanesh lord model kicking around for a while, and fortunately it's a perfect canvas to test out a colour scheme for the Myrmidesh Painbringers (side by side you can see the influence).
I've started to establish lilac as the colour used to distinguish leadership, whether unit command or heroes. So with the pain bringers, I might keep the cloaks white like with my warriors. We'll see.
The blending looks a little rough in p
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
