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
I decided to paint this cheapo model before messing around with the 2 other Glott brothers so I could nail down the paint scheme for my Nurgle mortals and I think it turned out pretty fantastic. Practicing blends on this model was a lot of fun and I really how the helmet came out the darker edged really pull your eye to his face. I'm also really enjoying the color combination I have found here the green goes really nicely with the pale purple and the orange accents the green perfectly.
I started off my Nurgle army by purchasing a Glottkin and really making my list around that. I saw someone do this tree kitbash on reddit and decided to do it aswell and go for a Ghyran based Nurgle army. I got some tree trunks and stumps from Grabblecast and a ton of tufts from different places to make nice woodland bases and I think its coming along really nice. I still have to make the guys riding the big dude but It's already looking pretty good!
The back side on this model has to be my
The print of the ghould shoulders worked like a charm though there are two major issues I'd like to correct:
- They are big. This might not me an issue to some people but I'll release a version that is about 20-30% smaller.
- They are too thin: I'll double their thickness since the material is too brittle. (Most of them are rather stable but some experience some damage if you don't handle them with care...well this still fits the theme of the FeC but it shouldn't happen without yo
The armor was successfully printed. It's a bit of a hassle to place it and you should cut off the big spike-heads in order for it to fit perfectly (also works without cutting but looks less good).
In the images the armor has been dry-fitted, glued with super-glue and it has already been primed
Tarvad, the Knight of Shrouds, and his faithful Lord Executioner (or Cairn Wraith).
I can't decide whether to field Tarvad as a Knight of Shrouds, or Riekenor the Grimhailer, as he shares aspects with both. I've got more Nighthaunts, but they didn't have any conversions, so I didn't think it worthwhile to show them.
A Stormcast Eternal Lord Celestant is in the making, for any who want to see him.
(any constructive criticism is welcome)
Finally completed this months set of models that sees the Brayherd reinforcements. I went with a fairly straightforward paint scheme, partially because that is what I like and partially because of time. This competition really helps push to finish things. I know a bunch of "not quite finished" parts of these models but am still pretty happy with them on the table. Definitely better to be done.
I tried a bunch of different skin colors and a couple hair colors on the Ungors. Let me know
I finally finished the chainrasps and based the Grimghast Reapers as well as the shackleghiest. Aside from some touch ups they are done and I am moving on to the knight of shrouds. Next week will see the rest of the sheets done and hopefully a nice cohesive army
I've decided to change the converted characters to Death, to me it seemed that the aesthetic worked more with Death, than with Sylvaneth. I've created a Guardian of Souls, and Made some minor changes to The Lord of the Silent Cliffs (such as adding pieces), so I had to re-prime him, but it has worked out well so far.
Apart from changing LSC (The Lord of the Silent Cliffs), I've painted some death rattle/Nighthaunt models, along with using some green-stuff to make a skeleton match LSC
The Satirical Simulacrum, The Bullet AoS Lore Dodged
The following is a topic I've ruminated on my the precarious mechanics of 40k' as satire, but some Reddit bickering about female space marines crystalized my thoughts. While I like all of GW's IPs, 40k has always been my least favourite. Part of this is just preferring swords to guns, but I'm also put off by the fascist, racist, sexist (grimdark is wall-to-wall 'ist') Imperium of Man, the seeming 'protagonists', compared to the co
Welcome back to my blog- since the previous entry I have successfully set up my machine and run a few files off- in fact I now have enough parts for about 25 acolytes and 3 jezzails and more on the way!
For a first time 3d printer experience, the machine has been pretty smooth so far, with only a few failed parts...although it is both messy and unpleasant to clean due to the toxic resin, so I am learning a lot about gloves, masks and special filtration to keep myself from en
I hate February. It’s hard to keep any painting momentum going, when my brain wants to curl up in the fetal position under my desk and hibernate until Spring.
And by “Spring”, I mean June. I love Canada, but it sucks too right now . Sigh.
Anywho, here’s proof I’m still making some progress on the girls:
Overall, I’m pretty happy with how they’re turning out. A big reason for the slow progress is that I’m still figuring out my colour scheme. I’m moving more to dark blu
The humble Steamtank has been a staple of the Ironweld since the inception of Age of Sigmar and a beautiful model in the Empire range in the world that was, it was only fitting then that when I came to revise the Ironweld into a new iteration that it found only only one new warscroll but three to reflect the myriad of designs that Ironweld Arsenal can mount on such a reliable workhorse of an engine. One thing I wanted to emphasis in the lore was how vital the fleets of Steamtanks (Now referred t
With Artillery and Phalanx looked at I felt it was time to see how the diminuative Pressure rifle wielding Weld Riflemen could perform with the interplay of various abilities within the battletome. Their initial statline whilst reasonable is in many cases risking being outclassed by the cheaper Freeguild Handgunners, however it is the strength of the army as a whole that boosts the Riflemen into the lead.
-Starting from their own warscroll each Rifleman (barring the apprentice)
I have made some progress on my soul wars set. I have the chainrasps about 70 percent done as well as the spirit torment. These guys have been particularly easy to get through especially after all the other nighthaunts I have painted the last few months. Once these guys are finished it’ll be off to the reapers and stalkers with the other characters and then after that possibly the stormcasts. I will say that painting all these ghosts has been a lot of fun and I will feel a little sad once I
When desinging the rules for the Ironweld Phalanx I wanted them to feel different to your traditional Freeguild with Halberds, they are more robust and advanced but benefit far less in big units as they spend less time in trained military drills than their Freeguild variants instead relying on exquisite advancements in warfare to keep them safe on the battlefield.
For an army centred largely around shooting I didnt want the Phalanx to suddenly be combat monsters, they are a defensive melee
In my expansion of the Ironweld Arsenal it was important to me that everything seemed like a symbiotic melding of man and machine, each warscroll able to benefit from those around them and thus making no one more important than any others. In having modelled my Helblaster it gave me an opportunity to see how the new rules I had written could interplay to turn a good artillery piece into a great heart of an army.
So first we have the new warscroll, gone are the seperate crew that always got
So, first post, I originally started collecting the Wood Elves way back in 2002 during the 6th edition of Warhammer Fantasy as it was known then (and also when all of this around us was fields *shakes walking stick*). I played a few games with the Elves but was more into 40k as more people were playing that in my FLGS at the time and it was easier to get a game in as a result. This focus on 40k continued when I stopped going to the store for games and started gaming regularly with a small group
This blog is dedicated to my Skaven clan. Please excuse me in advance for the language errors, as I am not a native speaker. I am French but I will do my best to share my clan tales in English. I intend to combine fluff, hobby and play in this blog with stories, pictures of my models, battle reports and list building. I warmly welcome any feedback and hope you enjoy the read.
The story of Clan Prepnik originates from the one of Grey Seer Bouldrak, its chieftain. A
I finally got some shelf space cleared to set up my models. Seeing it now it seems like a lot of models but I know it isn’t enough hahaha. The chaos army is kinda lacking sitting in the back corner and that sea of dryads takes up a lot of space. It is really nice to see them all set up together for once.
Skaven are done.
And I realized that I forgot to put up a Blog uzpdate for the Gloomspite Gitz, so I'll link them too.
If you're waiting for Flesh-Eater Courts, a workable version will follow today. A minor update for them follows as soon as I get hold of a high res picture of the battletome cover artwork.
And of course, updates in a few weeks when the release errata drop.
