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 was looking at my hobby stuff, not that much I have to say, and my eyes stopped on the old boxes from the 5th edition. I was something like 10 or 12 years old when my brother arrived, smiling at me, with a Warhammer starter box.
He used to play high elves since a while, and I was really interested in the game. Looking at those Lizardmen, they looked marvelous and I was so excited I built them that same evening, ready to play the day after.
My first game was a defeat, a big one, I onl
I colored outside the lines a little bit with my commitment to buy only one model per paycheck.
What can I say? I found a great deal on eBay and "saved" a few bucks?
Anyway, no one cares about that. A Maggoth Lord is a big investment and I really only have theories about how each one plays. I put together a survey so you can weigh in which Lord is the best. Two categories, one filth, one hobby.
Let me know what you think.
On Sunday I got together with my gaming buddies @Sunchaser and @Malicth at Odyssey Games in Scottsdale, AZ and we got in some games. Sunchaser was tired of beating up my Rotbringers so he split off and faced this dude George who was there and had some Stormcast Eternals. George hadn't played for a few months but was looking to get back in and had a very cool looking army that was coming right along in terms of painting.
I faced off against Casey, David (who wrecked my face previously with h
A quick update...
So, frustratingly, I have not gotten much done last couple of weeks.
Real life stuff etc...
Anyway, I have managed to get some more done on the blood reavers and really love the new bloodbound range.
However, just recently I picked up a couple of audio books starring the hallowed knights and one mannfred von Carstein!
I am completely enthralled with the character and built this guy...
Still early days but I think I'll model him in such a way h
I have had a long held fascination with Slaanesh but have never got around to doing a Slaaneshi army.
After getting my Alpha Legion Eternal Stormcast list to where I wanted it to be I took the plunge and picked up the bones of a Slaaneshi army from some fellow gamers that had no use for it.
Slaanesh has always been about speed, manipulation and a boat load of attacks that have some element of armour piercing to them, this is all true in age of sigmar so it felt like I was coming from a
Stomping, squirming and fluttering, from the deep dark corners of the oldest forests, madness arrives!
Pretty happy with this guy. I think I could have done the scales and horns better. I am happy with the skin and wings though!
While I was going to do up the Bloodscorch Bullgors next, I unearthed 10 more Gor. While the Warherd is a bit out of my reach right now (I'd need one more ghorgon and nine more bullgor), the Brayherd is alive and well.
With the release of The Generals Handbook I thought it was a perfect time to start a new Warhammer Age of Sigmar army.
I had started swapping out the bases on my Nurgle Daemons but that just is not the same is it.
I was thumbing through the Handbook trying to point out stuff I alread have and decide what to do when, like many of you I saw the Beastclaw Raider section. Having always been a big fan of the Stonehorn and Hunter Models I thought why not, I only
I decided to paint my AOS Stormcast Eternals in the Hammers of Sigmar colour scheme, so obviously my Knight Questor got this treatment as well. Following the Warhammer TV tutorial on painting Stormcasts, I painted his gold armour first and I really enjoyed it! But then came the cape... The blue parts went fine, but I had problems with the white because I was out of Celestra Grey. I had a few problems with getting an even coat, but eventually I got there. I finished the armour with a gloss varnis
I was able to get a nice weeknight game in with my buddy @Sunchaser yesterday at Odyssey Games in Scottsdale, AZ.
I still am holding at about 1000 points, having failed to assemble my Chaos Warshrine this week while editing my tablerop RPG podcast, Full Metal RPG.
There were an odd number of players so @Sunchaser (Sylvaneth) got funneled into another 3 player battle royale with me (MoN Chaos) and Sam, (Duardin). We were battling for control of an artefact in the center of the board and
Deep from within the caves of Ghur, an oddboy of exponential power emerges from the shadows. Dedicating his service to Gordrakk, Gurrbog fortells a great destiny to Gordrakk and the Blakkmoonz Warclan. One of power, fear, and annihilation. Madboy Gurrbog is more than just a Weirdnob, he is an absolute madboy!
I absolutely adore this little guy! He was fun and very easy to paint. I went for a more traditional look rather than the weird and amazing colour combos you sometimes find for Gryph Hounds. I mostly used drybrushing combined with washes on him. It only took about 20 minutes to get him completely done.
The second hero I painted was the Doomseeker. I wanted the orange tones to return all over the miniature so I painted his beard, hair, runes and the fire in his weapon all in a similar fashion.
I also use my Silver Tower models in AOS, so I give them the same lava-themed base as the rest of my collection. For the Doomseeker this works really well.
I'm happy about the way he turned out. He's really bright and stands out on a battlefield.
The Wellington Warlord's annual gaming event Call To Arms is this weekend, and they were kind enough to let us run Warhammer as one of the events on offer. We ended up with 11 entrants (plus one ringer player), and it has been great to meet with all the new players (over the internet so far, but in person this weekend) and share in their enthusiasm in the build-up to this event.
For some it will be their first tournament, and for others it will be their first games of Warhammer: Age of Sigm
Hey guys! Time for my next major project; Operation Clear the Backlog. Anyone who's been following me on twitter knows that I've been buying a ludicrous amounts of models. It's silly. But when you're offered Tomb Kings models for half of retail, you take the offer. Normally TK stuff runs for more than retail on Ebay, and the supply isn't going to grow anytime soon. So I've picked up a lot of stuff.
I feel bad letting it lie around though. These are toys, after all. So I decided to s
Excited about all the new Games Workshop ventures?
We are developing and expanding the Warhammer Digital department (apps and digital content) and we are looking for a Digital Sales Lead and a graphic designer.

This weekend I got in my weekly game with @Sunchaser at Desert Sky Games in Phoenix, AZ. I showed up with the same mixed Nurgle list I played last time. We had agreed that we wanted to try a Battleplan from the SCGT 2016 Tournament Pack and we set that game up. I can't remember what the Battleplan was called, but it's the first one in there and it's like, you have to control altars in order to move a storm.
Anyway, to control an altar requires a Hero or Monster and so @Sunchaser (who plays
As promised in the last entry, the update to the army this time is a Chaos Dwarf Daemonsmith from Forgeworld.
Forgeworld has done a great job with their Chaos Dwarf characters, they've kept the core elements from the previous ranges - the scale mail, curly beard, tusks, bull imagery - but updated it to fit in with the modern GW aesthetic. This also means that they fit in pretty well with the Chaos Dwarf ranges of the past.
A side by side comparison certainly demonstrates the advances i
Welcome to my first ever blog!
Recently I fell in love with the wonderful game and stunning miniatures of Warhammer Quest Silver Tower. I decided to share my painting process with you as a way to keep me motivated. I really like to paint miniatures, but being a full time working husband and father with a passion for photography, painting, graphic design, going to concerts, running, reading and loads of other stuff, my miniatures don't get all the attention they deserve. So this blog will ho
I take a look into what may be a massive problem with a new format of the General's Handbook. To let you know ahead of time, I consider points the primary consideration through this entire piece. Bringing up tactics like use of hordes, fast units, elites, summoning, and monsters is a good point, but I'm going to bust it open at the very end.
Did you choose Chaos for a Path to Glory Campaign? No! Don't worry! I won't judge harshly! Yet...
So which god did you pick? From what I'll show
While Shartok Dragonchewer continues his journey of bringing the Shard of the Herdstone to Beastlord Kaamagruul tribe, reinforcements arrive. Fooves pound across the plains, and drunken yowls piercing the treeline. The Sons of the Warhoof arrive - united in devotion to their father and a love of good drink.
Ghorros Warhoof - here to drink, fight, and rut.
The Centigor Herd - Born from regions across the Realm of Life, willing to defend their father with their
So time to get this blog going again. I've been spending a lot of time recently thinking about what's needed to build a competitive army list. These ideas are for any method of playing not comp specific.
1. A damage dealer
Every list needs something that can be relied upon to go out there and kill enemy war scrolls - this can be a big monster, a killer combat unit, warp fire throwers, anything that can deal consistent damage.
2. Better make that at least two damage dealers.
