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 all. In my first blog post, I want to concentrate on 'faction release' ideas, so I'll be talking about lore as it pertains to new models and story direction for the faction. Ruminating on how to fix the mess that is the state of the Duardin disunion, I came up with an idea for two releases to bring them into line.
Based on Skaven and FEC, it seems future AoS releases will comprise of at least a book, terrain and endless spells. Below are my ideas for revitalizing the factions with as li
And whilst my madness is still in full bloom the labour of love that gave it it's method is nearing completion. And it's really coming together!
My only issue is it's had to be more angled than I'd like to fit within the height bounds of the 'realmgate' but with the clouds it looks like it's rising up magnificently out of them! And I'm quite proud
I'm pretty proud I've managed to achieve this just gotta trim the clouds for the base and then finally add on my energy arcs f
The Dragon Ogors need some help. We've recruited a local Breyherd. This months figures: a unit of Beastigors, a unit of Ungor Raiders and a Beastlord to lead them.
Only need 250 points this month and after the last set of games, I figured I needed some bodies.
Assembled and started to paint. If I finish these early, I'll probably paint a Sorcerer Lord on Manticore that I've been meaning to finish.
So good news today. Even more work has been done on the ironclad! And once I get it finished and my special base done it will be ready to set sail at the head of my fleet!
Look forward to seeing this beauty rising up through the clouds soon!
Slowly but surely my work on my shadow pirate kharadrons continues currently with my ironclad. Unfortunately my ironclad and frigates were bought fully assembled so are proving a bit of a pain to paint. But we're getting there at least.
Almost done on this one, need to drybrush golden griffon to dull down the gold a little as golden griffon is paler and less bright. Then just crew and little details.
I think these grim ghost reapers have to be the fastest from sprue to paint that I have ever done. We got them last Thursday and now they are perhaps 3 more steps to completion. I threw in the Banshees in with them for the sake of it. I love the way the dry brushing looks on Nighthaunt models and makes it so much easier than picking out the lines with a small brush. I have so many large brushes that I can sacrifice as many as needed unto the alter of progress. I order Soul Wars and it shoul
Skaventide Warscroll Changes
All Clans Covered
Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls. Presented here for you, by popular demand, is a total recap of the changed to all the Skaven scrolls laid out by Games Workshop. To the regular readers you will notice the Pestilens scrolls are in here despite already having been covered in a separate article. This is so anyone seeking a total guide doesn’t have to jump between the two. If you’re Pestilens supremacist or an enterprising Nu
Won't lie to you fellow ratkin I actually forgot that the warscrolls get revealed a week before the book itself due to how the retail website works so waking up here in NZ to all these changes was like Christmas. But the kind of Christmas where you're not sure if the gifts are cool or terrible. Without further ado, let us get stuck into the warscrolls and talk about what’s different, what’s better, and what’s worse. As ever, we still don’t have points so a lot of this is potentially subjective.
Didn't expect to be back so soon, but GW is throwing spoilers at us hard and fast and you know i'll be there to catch them. Today's article centred on Skaventide Endless Spells, as well as the Gnawhole terrain feature. As always, I preface this saying we don't have the full picture, any of my predictions could be wrong here based entirely on what we get caster wise and what's big in your local meta. We also don't know the point costs of these (Gnawhole is terrain and therefore free) so that can
For anyone whose been keeping an eye on the Ironweld Arsenal fantome project, or avid fans of big guns in the Age of Sigmar we've put together the version one allegiance abilities, warscrolls, batallion and playtesting points lists for the Ironweld Arsenal. Below are our initial outlays and abilities for the faction that we'd love feedback and critique on aswell as any ideas that fresh eyes can bring to the concepts. These are the gameplay mechanics of the Ironweld, though feel free to check out
Hey there fellow Acolytes, figured I might as well do some posts relating to the rules spoilers we will be getting leading up to the battletome. To preface this, it's important to acknowledge all rules we are shown are in a vacuum, we have no idea what other changes may be coming that supplement or affect these rules. But that being said, let's dive straight into it.
Kicking off strong. Now "Overwhelming Mass" is exactly the sort of thing I expected with a new Skaven book, it both rew
Patriarch Ignatius, supreme head of the religious arm of the Church Of Saint Simeon leads a grand procession of the faithful zealots against the enemies of the Crusade. Bearing relics of the Saint himself into battle the Patriarch whips the faithful into a reckless frenzy before unleashing their righteous fury on the heretical foes before them.
Here are my converted Abhorant Ghoul King on Terrorgheist along with his converted Flagellant Ghoul followers.
Made a map using an awesome tool. Now first is to put the realms in general into context, this is a realm sphere of ashqy and the little circle is the map GW gave us for part of the realm.
Now here is the great parch.
So now we have context here is the map of Gathilee. (Which is in Chamon to clarify)
His eyes were drawn into the flames, the purple fires danced in the brazier and all he saw was better times. A time where he could feel the presence of his lost deity, it was so grand knowing that your god was there. The age of myth to him was a distant memory, one he kept revisiting. He stood on this very altar, his guards hefting him up high as he shouted praise to his glorious lost god. He became lost in that vision, his dulling mind burn alight with pleasure and sensation as he bask
Kronak takes a small vanguard of thunderscorn through the realm gate. Their first step towards finding a way home. They arrive in the realm of Ghyran and quickly discover five other forces to contend with. "To arms brothers and sisters."
We had a small tournament with 500 pt armies we built for the campaign. We played 4x4 tables with a bit of narrative. Realm was Ghyran and each game gave benefits to winners.
It was a bit rough for Kronak and his Thunderscorn. With only th
Marl Xarks carreer as an Arch-Warlock and Leader of the Great Revoluthing Army nearly ended during his first battle on Hysh. As a young warlock engineer the skyre army of his clan was beaten at the first contact with the Stormcast Eternals. Marl was captured and taken to Azyrheim, from which he managed to escape with the help of a team of eshin skavens. But he didn't leave unchanged. Seeing Azyrheim was an enlightenthing form him and from those days on, he wanted a better future for all skaven.
January is finished, and it's time to audit my numbers.
In December, I painted the following:
60 Stabbad: 360 points
Fungoid Cave Shaman: 90 points
Madcap Shaman: 80 points
Total: 530 points
In January, I painted the following:
Zarbag's Gitz: 160 points
20 Shootas: 130 points
Endless Spells: 210 Points
10 Boingrot Bounders: 200 points
Loonboss with Great Cave Squig: 100 points
20 Squigs and 4 Herders: 240 points
So i guess by the 60 notifications and 13 (a good omen) missed messages I woke up to on here it finally happened.
Pestilens review of the book to come, I plan to leave the rest of the content to more educated minds than me.
See you all then
Hello wargamers, lore nerds, dice fiends and 'that guys'.
I figured I'd open up the first post to this blog by talking about something I hadn't put much thought into until recently, player morale. Naturally we nerds like to share our hobbies with others and love to see more people get involved in our not so little game of toy soldiers, but sometimes people lose the enthusiasm that keeps us going through those downtrodden times of broken armies, sub par battletomes or lack thereof.
I finished the dryads and got them based. As I start to see what my painting looks like it the day light I notice that I rush through models very quickly and often leave mistakes that glaringly stare me down every time I get the models out to look at. Given I don’t have a proper place to paint and the lighting is usually bad when I do get to paint through the night until 5 am on my days off of work it becomes evident I need to get a place for myself that I can focus on painting more. I have n
