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 managed to finished round basing the Grots for this unit. I have also constructed a magsnetised display/ transport tray for these guys similar to the Squig hopper unit.
I am happy with how these have turned out, I was trying to achieve an individual, characterful look to each Grot.
A full-time job... part time study... and on top of that I decided to register for a tournament in just over one month... What was I thinking?! Looks like I've got my work cut out for me, and so I've decided to make a blog to talk all about it and to trace my progress.
The army marching to war is a member state of the Freeguild, and I need to paint roughly 2000 points for this tournament (I'm also supplying the majority of a stormcast army for a friend... so I'll be working on that too!)
Progress already? Yer damn right.
Finished building my Spawn, the losers of the chaos army. Frankly I think they are totes adorbs <3
I was able to do these with only one box of spawn and a couple extra bodies I got off eBay. They give you so much stuff! Pretty much cleared the sprues.
I only need three for my army tho so I made the fourth one into a hat!
So no pictures today and instead some meandering thoughts.
I'm sure there are many like me who work, married, kids, pets...it goes on! So where do we find the time for out hobby? That fine balance of real life and the 'other' life of pushing, or in some cases throwing, our lovingly painted armies into war!
On most days I manage to get between half an hour and an hour painting. This includes any assembly so time is short! Army building is troublesome but I'm working hard to get my colle
Being the kind of person I am, I likes to plan out an army before buying a ton of ****** (I miss my employee discount ) I decided to start by making a list based on what info we have from the Generals Handbook. It's a 2500 point list with a Slaves to Darkness / Slaanesh? Allegiance. Tried to put in all the stuff I like without too much worry of whats competitive or uber powerful. I like to play for fun not WAACing people do death
Sorcerer Lord - 140pts
Exalted Hero - 80
Finally all the bits and pieces arrived in order for me to be able to make the base, pictured right, for my dragon ogre shaggoth! Every time I sit down to build/hobby/paint I push myself to try something new and to surpass all my previous work (this is a serious curse sometimes). So looking at the bases I made for my brayheard, pictured left which I made a blog post on previously, I decided the main thing I wasn't 100% happy with was the way things felt like they were stuck on top (probably due
Just a quick update today. Some more work has been done on the Orruks, but none of it is interesting or photogenic... it is just sticking together the bodies of 5 brutes and continuing to greenstuff the shoulders back onto the Boss. Maybe sometime I'll get the sculpting part done to a stage that makes it clearer. At some point I need to sort out better photos too
While the greenstuff is drying, I did a bit more painting; mostly going back and revisiting the Questor and mini horrors to neate
A quick entry today.
So recently got my hands on a Darkoath Chieftain and painted him up. A fantastic model with lots of character and great fun to paint.
Having painted this cheerful chappy I decided i must get a copy of the whole game! Which would no doubt lead to all kinds of projects...which is likely a reason I don't own it yet ;D
But having finished this model I realised I really need to paint some mobs of reavers for my bloodbound. I don't have much in
I just thought I would add this in here as it is hidden away in the blog title page.
I will be documenting the progress of this army here and will post WIP pictures more regularly on Twitter via @Bishmeister1.
This army was commenced early last year but enthusiasm for it waned when Age of Sigmar was released and round bases became standard. After much deliberation I began to rebase the army and now love the round base aesthetic and its potential for more base embellishment.
Another blog! Yes indeed
I hope this will be the perfect tool to help me keep my hobby on track!
Many years ago I started a chaos army and the coming of AoS has thrown all kinds of fuel on my hobby fire!
Initially I started a slaanesh force. I knew the current fluff of the dark prince but I've always loved the garish and excessive nature of them.
So I've got a few of my slaaneshi goodies pictured below. Not much admittedly (that comes later!) but I love painting them.Oddly en
Any good chaos dwarf force should consist of 30%dwarf and 70%other stuff (yay for fluff)
for those who dont know, hobgoblins are basically yellow skinned human sized Asian organised goblins. For mine im using different lord of the rings figures and gnoblar heads.
i have two finished who will be crewing my skull cracker along with an dawi engineer.
They have been half painted, so apologies for lack of detail and weathering
In the beginning
I made some resin forest bases (these have now been made into 25mm round bases)
I painted some test models, Grots and Squigs and these turned out okay.
I cleaned all the mould lines from the models prior to carrying out a mass undercoat and base coat using an airbrush. To do this efficiently I pinned each model (I will be using homemade forest resin bases) with a long paperclip to a cork to create a cork spraying carousel. See image below.
So unfortunately I can only give a small update on my progress because I only managed an hour or so total hobby time this week (trying to work out a colour scheme + baby + working lots = sad hobby time).
After much deliberating I decided the scales would be purple as I thought this would be both complimentary and contrasting to the sickly skin, as always the pictures are not 100% true to reality because phone cameras just never are. I am really happy with how the wrist scales really brin
Hello, my name is SuperHappyTime... and... I'm what you might call a netlister. (Que "Hi SuperHappyTime”)
For those not familiar with the term netlist or netlister, it's a derogatory term used by a player-base to insult a group of players that build their gaming playstyles/profiles/lists not based on personal experiences, but on internet searching. More specifically, they look at winning playstyles and build their said lists from them.
Now this will generally cause hate from a numb
i was lucky enough to attend warhammer fest... and got ,y hands on the big cow man
Huge aint he???
for his hat i used the hat of the tauruk, with the addition of the cloth banding and a few more horns i was on track. His derpy cow hands didnt fit my theme so i kitted him out with some leather mittons.
So far i have his base painted, nice of forge world to give us a nice resin base....
Also attached is a custom warscroll for a spec
hello guys and gals welcome to my bloggy blogy of chaos dwarf fun. Note how i say chaos dwarfs and not leagion of azgorh, these guys are back to there roots. Lets hear it for big hats..
i base a lot of my style of this art work
mainly the turban style hat and classic chaos dwarf look.
The first big thing i did for this army is a taur'uk
Lots of sculpting later he is still sat in my box, half painted...
any hoo... not wanting to go w
So I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Khornate Chaos Warriors as they always had some really badass looking models but I'd always managed to resist buying into them, until now. With the arrival of Silver Tower came the perfect excuse to pickup one of the meanest looking dudes of recent times...
Slaughterpriest with Hackblade and Wrath-hammer
I've always shied away from blood effects but as I've decided not to use a traditional red colour scheme on this model it seemed like
I haven't been doing a lot of painting lately, mainly just frustrated from hitting my head against the wall with my last job owing me money and some family worries, and organising travelling back to the UK, and fighting a shop who I think are a scam (a geeky shop, hence my WordPressblog post to warn anyone who might like their products, to be careful. My WordPress blog is for Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40K, but it can also be for all types of geekiness (but there is on
Hey there guys! Just doing a quick update entry to show off the banner bearer. His main body section is now finished, apart from maybe some touch ups (Like the bright silver on his left foot is too thick!). I've decided that the green colour, whilst not maybe as nice by itself as a yellowey natural green, works better with the dark metallic armour, as it is the primary source of colour. The skull on his pauldron seems a bit washed out unfortunately but the rest seems to have been caught well eno
