    The Hag!

    By Eevika

    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 this model I felt like it really needed another color to make it pop more so I asked some people what would be best and after many recommendations I decided to go for a nice bright orange and I think it really fits nicely. This picture also shows well the addition of mushrooms all over the model. Even though my Troggoth army is based on swamp themed bases with lots of water effects the mushrooms really tie it to my Grots and Squigs that are based on more rocky bases but with lots of mushrooms. The base on this model was definitely one of the most fun parts of the process of creating it. Here we see a detail shot of the base with the small Free Guild soldier hiding from the lumbering Hag. I love the base I did here. The water effects came out nicely and the base that comes with the Hag looks really nice after I added all kinds of fun stuff like mushrooms and skulls to it.

Starting the Jalopy of Doooooooom!

Honestly, I’ve been hesitant to start the altar for a couple of years. I love painting warriors and wizards and creatures... but machines, not so much. I rarely feel any real inspiration for colours or styles. Strangely enough though, last week I finally got struck with a bolt of inspiration  and realized I’d better run with it immediately before I lost it.  I’ve been painting my cold one knights and corsairs with dark blue-grey armour, and ended up applying that to my bolt thrower. I figured that might still work for the altar, along with magenta flames and runes to help tie it into my welves. So far, so good! In fact, I’m actually enjoying painting the sharp edges with high contrast, it’s fun to figure out lighting angles.    I’m using mostly GW paints for the blue-grey, but decided to add a bit of Vallejo prussian blue to each step of stippling to add some colour saturation. I think some if the blades will be light grey NMM, so the blue helps with the contrast.   The OSL for the runes and flames are fairly subtle, because I’m too scared of overdoing the effect and having to repaint everything. These are gaming models, so I’m trying to boost my productivity and complete these for table.    I’d love to get this completed inthe next two weeks, minus the Avatar of Khaine, guardians and hag/slaughter queen.    Doesn’t this look like something the Addams Family would drive? It’s the Jalopy of Dooooooom!!

30 days of hobby: Blood for the plastic god!

So Friday did not have any building or painting due to being at Warhammer world all day alas and Saturday I was also out and busy most of the day.   However I did manage to build valkia the bloody and half a unit of blood warriors. Not much but still something! And that's what counts.   My chaos force is building up nicely. Now just need to get more paint on stuff.

The Hunt

>>>>>  This story start righty after the Malign Portent story "To End the Everwinter"  <<<<<   “Bjorgulf was no more.” His words carried a heavy tone of grief, shared by everyone on the dimly lit hut. Háma sighted heavily. He is tired of this. For months he could barely rest, the non-stop dreams troubling his already troubled sleep. His back aches, more than it ached during his long life. He is used to pain since he was born, but the piercing stabs on his malformed bones are reaching new levels… He must endure… For he is The Hands… The assembled council stays silent, as if waiting for his next words. “I told him not to go. It was too early. I told him that if he wants to go, he must stay true to the true enemy. He was too reckless…” “Who felled him, Wise One?” asked Hartha in his rumbling voice, already baring his gold plated teeth. The Frostlord was huge, a giant among giants, standing quickly as in defiance to an unseen foe. “The Carrion God?” “No Hartha. The Carrion God still lingers in his black fortress, doing his dark deeds. His foolishness felled him. He picked up a fight where he should have picked up allies.” “WHO… FELLED… HIM?” the tone now full of threat and spite. Everyone backed up, as they know that Hartha’s anger can be like an avalanche. Everyone but the hunchbacked ogor in the middle of the hall, still staring intently at the huge amber crystal glowing on a bone armature, ignoring the angered brute. “Calm down and sit, Frostlord. We don’t need a second Bjorgulf…”  The voice was husked and dry, but carrying a commanding tone. The hulking ogor grumbled with himself, looked around for support, and founding none, sit again in a dark mood. “Something is amiss...” “What?” this time the question came from Hrothgard, the Hunting Hand. Covered in pelts, his Blood Vulture perched on his shoulder staring intently with beady eyes as the conversation unfolds. The First Hunter pointed at the crystal. “What are you seeing, Háma?” “The Everwinter. The storm is still raging. Bjorgulf’s Allfrostum doesn’t walk the paths of the living anymore, but yet his storm still lingers. They walk in the twilight, between life and death. That is an abomination.” Everyone looked around in disbelief. For the curse of the Everwinter always follow their kin, but abates when the cursed ones fall. “Badoun, cast your bones. We need to see to where this leads.” As if waking up from a dream, the huge Gargant sitting crouched on the corner of the hall grabbed a pouch from his belt. Covered  in bones and fetishes, the giant shaman threw at the floor a handful of carved skulls from his oversized fist, looking intently at some unfathomable pattern they formed. “Hummmm… Ommmph… Hummmm… Me sees deff… Dat ya ‘now… but…” with a finger the size of an arm, he moved around some skulls “Foul magicks workin’… Ole Bjorg will ‘now… Even ded… Me sees him ‘ere… We need him ta speek… He found sumfing…” and absentmindedly the Gargant start carefully to collect the skulls back into his bag… Háma started walking on the hall, with his peculiar shambling gait, leaning on his staff, thinking. “To Shyish we shall go. Find Bjorgulf. Or what was left of him. Hrothgard, ready your skals. Small group, take some sledges with you, we need to move fast. You must find him. If there is one that can do it, it is you” “Aye, Wise One. I shall be the Hand that Hunts! Should I bring him… whole?” “Yes. And for that part Hartha will be going with you.” With a snap the Frostlord moved into action, with a speed that defies his bulk “My spear is yours, Wise One! We shall bring him!” “Bring him… Whole! Take Blackrock with you. Stay back until Hrothgard finds a lead. Then bring the husk that once was Bjorgulf here. I shall see what he has to tell me, and will give him a proper rest with the Winds.” “Svard, how much time we have until the Howling Gate opens again for the Realm of Death?” Adjusting his prized duardin-made googles over his nose, the old Hand of Winds searched into the satchel hung on his shoulder, bulging with books and scrolls, and grabbed a well-worn leather-bound tome on one big hand and started looking at it. “According to my calculations, if the Amber Moon is really at the peak, then the gate will open for Shyish by next night. Of course this may change depending on the tides of…” “Enough time” cut Háma, before the old and wizened ogor started once again one of his endless speeches over the winds of winter “Hasten the preparations, the Horandrár shall ride soon!” ******* Háma walked into the pens. Hartha is preparing his mount for the long and dangerous journey, the enormous black Stonehorn impatient to be released. “I remember when you brought Blackrock to the encampment… Only you to tame such a foul tempered beast…” said Háma in his usual rasping tone. “Yes. It was a little difficult to tame, but here it is…” replied Hartha, without turning, still concentrated in placing the many leather straps of his big saddle. “Little difficult? When it came crashing to get you he only stopped after you put your spear through one of his eyes! And even so you barely managed to mount him!”  “Nonsense. Everything was under control… Besides, now I have only one eye too… Heh, don’t they say that the rider became like his ride?” “Yes. Only that you lost ours not to a spear, but to that Orruk you was choking.” “It was well worth it! If you could feel the sensation of that ****** kicking in your hands you would know what I am talking about…” “It surely do, as you kept choking him even when he was gouging your eye with his finger!” A sound like two big rocks scrapping together came from the big ogor. It was a long time since Háma heard Hartha laughing. “That ******!” “That ******!”, agreed the Wise One, laughing too. Háma came closer to put his hand on the beast long black fur. Stonehorns normally have  white or pale grey coats, to better blend on their icy surroundings… Not that the creatures had many natural predators, but this one is pure, jet black. This is very rare. A king among his kin. A giant among giants. A survivor. Like Hartha. “Why all this talk about the past? If you came here to command me to be cautious on my mission, Wise One, there is no need. I will be. I will bring what was left of Bjorgulf back to you. Whole. No unitended fights…” “No Hartha. I am not here as the Torr Kønig, the Wise One, commanding his Frostlord. I am here as your brother. Asking. Please. Be careful, we need you.” Turning to stare back for the first time, his face becoming a little softer when he gazed at the ruined body of his twin “Aye, Little Brother. I know. I don’t want to end like Bjorgulf. We will prevail. The Winter will end. You will see.” “Yes… The Winter shall end…We shall see…” replied Háma, already lost in thought… _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The Hunt,  a story by AJ ( @Antonio Rodrigues )

Rise of the Witch Elves

I’ve always loved the Witch Elves... they were one of the units that really defined the dark elf personality and helped differentiate them from the high elves which were ubiquitous in fantasy, even back in the 80s.  But a few things kept me from adding them to my delf army: 1. The price. 2. Low armour (glass cannon doesn’t suit my play style). 3. The price. 4. Liked the corsair models as well, and they cost less while having higher survivability. 5. Did I mention the price? $70 CDN was ridiculous, and still is. But now that they have a competitive list that’s also fun to play, it’s more worthwhile to make the plunge. I have to admit, I was getting tired of getting crushed because of the basic list available for the delves. I’m really bad for painting and repainting models, trying to figure out colour combinations. I’m never satisfied, always feeling like there is a “correct” combo that’s just out of my grasp. It’s terribly inefficient when it comes to finishing models, but... whatever. It’s my thing.  So it took me a couple of years to reach a colour scheme that satisfied me with my original delves. I finally settled on dark purple and golden yellow, with dark blue armour and white hair. After all that work, I was finally happy, and started repainting all my stuff for a final time...  ...but I was underwhelmed when I applied that scheme to my welf.  It was ok...ish. The golden yellow really popped on my other models because the rest of the palette was so dark. The contrasting colours really worked. But when applied to a model that was 80% skin, the yellow was lost. So, time to experiment again. The pink hair was a model I was making for a Blood Bowl team a couple years ago. Liked the colour, but decided I wanted to keep the hair paler. More vibrant than my first model though; these murderers are defined by vanity and visciousness, so I wanted a little more colour than silver. So, I finally figured that out. This is where they currently stand:

Welcome to Age of Blogmar!

Here, I plan to write about my involvement with Age of Sigmar. I am getting into AoS for the first time, after having played Warhammer 40,000 off and on every few years since the early 2000s. Currently I am just beginning to collect a Maggotkin of Nurgle army and learn the lore of AoS. In this blog, I will detail my thoughts related to both the hobby and strategic sides of the army, sharing my progress with pictures and, eventually, battle reports and more! I typically go deep into the hobby, and I attempt to paint amazing miniatures. I may also decide to write some fiction about the army as I develop its backstory, especially if there is demand. Tournaments may be in the future, so some posts will explore current Nurgle tournament lists and ways to iterate on them or theorycraft completely new lists. I plan to check the blog regularly for comments and feedback. If anyone has any questions or comments, I'll try to address them, so feel free to ask anything. About me: My name is Hitch, and I am 30 years old and live near Chicago. I have a passion for gaming and worldbuilding, among other things (Go Bears!). One of my dreams is to write a worldbuilding sci fi/fantasy series in the line of Dune/the Malazan Book of the Fallen. I have two great cats with opposite personalities and a wonderful fiancee.

Prologue

Alright, here we go... So I’ve been painting minis for over thirty years now, and I think I’m finally getting the hang of it. At the very least, it’s a hobby that helps me achieve some level of zen meditation, a way to block out the real world for a little while.  Not that the real world’s terrible, or at least my little corner of it, but it’s always a nice break to escape to the realm of Sigmar for a fantasy recharge.  I’ve loved GW’s versions of the dark elves since Trish and Aly Morrison broke off from GW to form Marauder Miniatures. They were a couple of the original GW sculptors, who also share the ignominy of sculpting the original Nagash. Well, everyone has at least one skeleton in their closet to hide...  As I was saying, they made the first complete, fleshed-out line of delves, complete with some really characterful mastiffs. If anyone is familiar with the Dakka site, that’s where I picked my “Mastiff” moniker from, when I’d post my 40k projects. Anywho... I always have had a soft spot for the delves. Surprisingly, I’ve never picked up a single Drizz’t novel, nor read any Malus Darkblade. But I’ve always gravitated to bad guys with a sense of style (team Empire over Rebellion all the way!) and these guys had it in spades. Unfortunately, my painting productivity is best described as “glacial”, so  completing the hundreds of figures required by a WH Fantasy army was itself a fantasy, so I stuck to 40k.  Until AoS. I still held out for a while, not wanting to get involved until they had point values for armies. I kinda assumed they wanted to kick around the rules for a while before committing to figuring out relative costs. In any case, when they finally released the  “proper” game with pts, I dug up my half-completed delf units to see what could be turned into an army. Congrats on reading this far, thanks! Here, have some photos of my Dark Elf army, which has been put on hold since the Daughters of Khaine finally gave me a fun and competitive army to play:   Damn, GeeDub really made some amazing models for the delves. Really hoping they revisit them some day, I’d love to field corsairs and cold one knights again, and not just as allies. In my next post, I’ll start talking about my Daughters of Khaine and post WIPs, which is what the blog is intending to cover.

30 days of hobby: Chaos for daaaaays

So yesterday I didn't get much time to paint but I got some good stuff done. Finally got some paint on my priestess and lady of slaanesh as well as getting a bit of paint on some blight kings and doing more work on archaon! Still plenty left to do though.   (Apologies for picture quality. Light in the room was not the best for photos and I was tired)

28-12-2018 Update 3

Previous count -3 Additions since last count: 1 Daughters of Khaine Battleforce - which I'm going to count as 5 boxes worth of content (it includes 2 khinari, 1 melusai, 1 witch aelf and 1 cauldron kits) Completions since last count: 0 ; chipped away at a few models here and there, but no block completed.  Current Count 2.    So Christmas has hit and with it a storm of content in the form of a Battleforce which has fast pushed my count back into the positives. I fully expect this to have a lingering impact as until I hit the painting side of things I'm likely to leave the cauldron and the melusai mostly incomplete since they require more painting in separate parts before assembling (at least to make the painting a little easier). So that will be at least 2 boxes that will last for a time. That said I've got only 3 more Doomfires till I complete another box and I've started on the fragile Khinari from the Battleforce. Looking to make them into 10 more Heartrenders. I've also plans to add a second Battleforce to my  collection which would round me out with all 20 of each type of Khinari that I think I'll need (whilst I love the models I can't see any reason to take more than 20 of either kind at present); 20 Blood sisters (one full unit of them); 4 Cauldron kits in total (more than I'll need in leaders and cauldrons and even Avatars so that's a nice completed block of purchasing). Plus the Witches from two battleforces means I only need to add one box of additional witches to complete my third block of 30 Witch aelves. Tempted to make them twin daggers as they look great like that, even though I'll admit that bucklers is likely the more versatile build choice.    Hoping I can knock back the count to 0 before January, I've also come up with a new "rule" for myself - no buying models* unless my count at the time of buying is 0 or lower. Who knows if I can keep up at the rate I am currently I might even be able to adapt that rule to a lower value threshold. It would be great to see it at something like -10!    *exception for Kickstarters, limited release models and supreme good deals that are insane to avoid.

30 days of hobby: Dorghar, varanguard & acolytes

So today being Christmas and living with my family meant that I didn't have too much painting time today. But I still got a decent amount done!!   First I added blue to my acolytes and even did their scroll which I'm rather proud of. Now mostly need highlights and basing.   I also managed to wash and drybrush my varanguard, something different compared to my last unit but certainly an interesting style. And a rather different colour scheme. Need to start getting detailing and other colours on them.   And finally this evening I managed to get started on the big mans horse(monster thing?) himself! Dorghar!! Still lots to do before friday though!! So shall get cracking again tomorrow.

Halfling GREATSWORDS 2.0

Hi there again,  Finally got a little more hobby done. This time it’s an addition to Halfling  greatswords!  I still need to complete a standard banner, and then a unit of 20 will be complete.  These are part of a small force for a local escalation league that starts in January. Next are demigryph knights and a free guild general!  Also, I know I promised Halfling crossbowmen last time, so here’s a little WIP shot.  Hope you like what I’ve got!  Untile next time.

30 days of hobby: More varanguard and a start on kairic acolytes

So as per usual I have continued to work on my beloved varanguard. With 2 of squad 1 almost finished and squad 2 now base sprayed caliban green for something a little different. Figure hey why not really differentiate the squads, get that proper multiple bands coming together as everchosen feel. Whew that's a lot of photos of beefy horsemen!! So let's have something a little different. I started on batch painting my 10 kairic acolytes I'll need, doing them very quick and dirty because I need to teach myself not to spend hours on single footsoldiers who are gonna be surrounded by lots of others and die in droves. They're far from finished but definitely a good start and mostly now just need smaller details, feathers and then highlights.   Though I plan to do more later I am taking a break for now in order to play a game against my dad to try out my list for Friday's Warhammer world 2v2 where me and another man of the same name playing khorne will square off vs my dad and another guy playing bonesplitters & ironjawz. (Fun fact, all 4 of us have names beginning with J) Wish me luck!

Straddling the Divide

I made the trip to my local game store this weekend to pick up my wife's Daughters of Khaine battleforce, and my Wrath and Rapture box. Pleasantly, the Lord of Slaanesh on Daemonic Mount I ordered was also waiting. Once I got home I promptly opened the Lord kit and started prepping it for assembly, blithely ignoring Wrath and Rapture until I had reached the point where the Lord required conversion elements I did not have on hand. Oh Thanharath, someday your raiding band of daemonic pirates will ply the seas and coasts, someday. I finally committed to a basing scheme for my mortals and daemons, the pirate themed mortals will all be based in the wood plank theme, while the wholly daemonic models will use the alien invasion bases. This will allow my daemonic host to straddle AOS and 40K without looking like they should be in one game or the other. I expect the Emperor's Children codex to drop sooner or later, and that's something I'm very interested in.

Back to Wrath and Rapture, the Fiends and Infernal Enrapturess impress, and with the reinforcements from the box I'll be able to start playing 500+ point games this week. It's been a few years since I last played any unit oriented tabletop and I'm anxious to see my "ladies" cavort across the battlefield.

30 days of hobby: More varanguard painting!

On friday I did a little bit of building a nurgle gnarlmaw which isn't worth a photo really. On Saturday I was too busy tabletop roleplaying for painting alas but today... Today I have continued to give glorious cover to the strongest of all chaos warriors!! THE VARANGUARD!   This first squad is slowly but surely getting there. I can only hope it'll prove quicker for other ones so I can try and get them ready for friday!!

Introduction

Hello and welcome to my blog. I will spare the introduction to myself; who cares. I started a gaming group about two years ago, where we met to play the dungeon crawler Star Wars Imperial Assault. After playing through four campaigns, I felt like I needed a more even competitive game and when one of the players got his brothers old Chaos army, it quickly took off.  We split the old starter set, I got the Stormcast and a third friend got into Undead and quickly bought everything. After the Maggotkin released, I became a follower of Nurgle. We went to our first tournament, a small local one with only eight players, where I played my army with Rotigus, GUO, Lord of Blights, Slimux and a Sorcerer with 60 plaguebearers and five Blightkings. I used to the competitive magic and had a fun T1 deck on the side called Parfait that created a lockdown combo, where the opponent couldn't ever do anything but draw his card and never play a thing. Fun! I had hoped my Nurgle army would function a bit like that, but it never happened. For some reason my units could be killed, even though they couldn't do much themselves. It's probably my lacking skills or a poorly build army, but I found it dull to play. After the first three battles I decided I wanted an army of eels, so I at least could pull some fun alpha strikes instead of slowly grinding the armies down. On the second day I won the best painted award (out of six painted armies) and I decided then that my goal was more in that direction, rather than to win games. I bought a pack of Namarti Reavers on Black Friday to get started while waiting for the Deepsurge Raiding Party to come out. Recently I bought 10 thralls, an Akhelian King, a Soulrender and a Scryer used.

22-12-2018 Day 2

Previous Count 0 Current Count -3 Completed two boxes of Doomfire Warlocks, 10 more models done! Though technically they are only part done as I want to paint some parts up before final assembly. But they are as close to done as they will be before paint is applied. I also completed a 1 model blister of an attack dog from Wild West Exodus, neat little dog and well cast.  I've also been chipping away at some metal chaos dogs and khorn hounds in metal. Be nice to get one or two boxes of those done and another 5 Doomfires before Christmas. That would leave me just Melusai and cauldrons on the Daughters of Khaine front and have done the brunt of chaos metal that I've got in stock.

Hedonytes: First Recruits

This is the first batch of my Slaaneshi acolytes; my 'Hedonaughts'. I want to proxy them as daemonettes (as I like the rules, but want the majority of my force to be mortal). Painting this starting batch of five has made me try several new recipes and techniques, to various degrees of success.  White Cloaks Easily my fave aesthetic of the lot. The only negative to wet blending is that, in painting the cloaks first, I ended up getting errant smudges on them I would have to cover with more stark colour transitions. I like how the white is darker than the white of the shields, as this makes it feel like real clothing. I'm not sure whether the edge highlighting was advisable, but at least it fits with the TT style of mini.  NMM Gold This was something I'd never done before. While not perfect (mainly due to my iffy judgement lighting values),  it at least looks gold-esque. And it didn't take me too long. I'm mainly talking about the shield designs here: when it came to small and complex shapes like trinkets I muddled through, and it shows.  NMM Steel I  tried a kind of NMM metal once before, but that was for an ethereal effect on Shadespire Guard (see below). I tried something more conventionally metallic, and the results are mixed. It's too similar in colour to the cloaks, which is especially noticeable on the axe. I painted the sword with a more blue hue, which was a slight improvement. Let me know your NMM steel hacks.  Gemstones This is one aspect which will be present on every single model in my army, so I had to get it right. I was surprised at how quickly the difficulty of achieving the effect becomes (booth because of brush control and visibility) at a certain size. The big gems be a little dopey in terms of verisimilitude, but I prefer them because I was able to paint them properly.  Skintone I decided to go with an easier, layering system to save time. My Shadespire Targor pic below is probably my best flesh paintjob, and, while I'll be using a similar colour scheme for batch 2 of this unit, I've accepted that I need to keep it simple if I ever want to finish this project.  Overall, this was a good learning experience for my project going forward. As you can see from the pink mowhawk dude (the first test mini I painted, which I dropped within 10 seconds of the final brushstroke and snapped his horn...)I was planning on free-handing cloak embroidery but it didn't quite work. On the other hand, I was nervous about the workload going into making the weird 'bumps' on the armour (easily the strangest aspect of the idoneth aesthetic) gems, but it turned out to be the most fun part of the project. I overdid the splash effects of the waves here and there, so I'll be more restrained in the future. And I kind of haven't nailed which direction the river is going, which makes it a little confusing to look at as a group. Ah well, live and learn. 

C&C welcome!

The Lord Ordinator

This one is a kinda tragic story. I bought him to accompany my artillery. Obviously. In Malign Portents he had a command ability which let him pick an artillery piece which could fire twice this round! WhoopWhoop! With AoS 2.0 there came the possibiliy to spend more than one command point each round. So the idea was to make a really cannon heavy list with around 1600 points to get 8 command points for the remaining 400 points. With these command points you could have made your 4 cannons shoot twice in the first 2 rounds. I guess this would have brought a lot of fun. At least on my side. (You can read about this in the Ironweld Arsenal discussion Thread started by @Double Misfire) But GW was aware of this fact and changed his warscroll in the new Stormcast battletome. Now he has some ability about battelshock immunity for stormcast units only. Its a real shame because I put a lot of effort in this model. But on the other hand it`s not that bad. I also had a lot of fun painting him and he looks good on the shelf

So that`s the story of the Lord Ordinator. Here are the Pictures:


I think I done quit well with his cloak and really like it. It looks even better if you turn the miniature in the light.

The Empire Great Cannon

This one was also bought in a our local shop. Afterwards i realized how lucky I was because this gorgeous model is no longer officially sold 
In my opinion this is the most beautiful artillery piece on the whole GW range. It`s just a cannon how a cannon should be. I`m searching ebay for an unbuild one ever since. I need a second for symetric purposes

Here are some pictures

I really like how the crew turned out. You can see in the faces what kind of guys they are.
The seasoned gunner with a long beard and grim look commanding the crew, picking targets and firing the cannon:
The normal cannon crew member, having seen his share of the battle. Being determined in his duty:
And the greenhorn without any facial hair. Maybe it`s his first fight? Having a more shyish look and hasn`t earned some individual equipment pieces yet. At the moment he may only do the most easy work and carry those heavy cannonballs:
In the end I`m really happy with this model.  If you got an unbuild sprue of it at home. PM me, I`d be glad to take it

30 days of hobby: Bring forth the knights of ruin!

My goal of 9 varanguard is nearing completion... 4 of the 6 i was building are finished! Decided one unit will have daemonforged blades, I know they're kinda crappy but I love the sculpts and I can always count them as ensorcelled weapons sometimes too. That will give me 6 spears and 3 who don't care about charging (If I need someone tough to objective sit) I've also done more work on the slaughterpriestess, couldn't find a good head with hair to hold so instead she's torn out the spine too!! I'm very happy with it And finally I have almost finished my lord of slaanesh on foot, some escher legs gave a lovely punkish slaanesh feel may have to shorten the sword though but I do love her dancing esque pose  All in all I'm really happy with how this lot are coming along

30 days of hobby: Conversion time!!

So yesterday I began work on some conversions which are all in a WIP state but I'm having fun building. The first is my slaughterpriest/priest to sit atop my warshrine made from a darkoath warqueen. She's getting there and just needs a victims head to hold, his body also needs some greenstuffing. I shall endeavour to get better pictures once done. Next we have MORE VARANGUARD. Once these and another box are done I shall have 9 total, because I'm terrible but I love them so much. Not much to say here as they're all non converted besides a tentacle to replace the hand I used for the queen. Finally we have some very WIP conversions for some lords of slaanesh made from idoneth. One on a demonic steed and another on foot. I'll definitely need some ways to chaos these two up a bit more. Besides just shields. Hopefully they'll look the part when finished and painted! I shall be doing more work on them tonight so hopefully will be able to show you all soon!!
