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
Saturday came and went in a flurry of axe wielding cows and northern men from the Empire falling out of windows :-) We played 3 games of Mordheim and I’ve really enjoyed the Beastmen, however singularly you need to be when playing them!
Game 1 was fast, and my opponent heavily armed...4 archers & 3 riflemen. On top of that there are 2 combat heros and a couple of spearmen...we deployed in the ruins, Ross Howard (@rossymagic): https://twitter.com/rossymagic?s=09 took the
Lets kick this off with a little introduction!
I'm Adam, from Dorset in the UK. I have been in the hobby since around the time of the Dark Elves army book release in 8th. I have always been a massive fan of anything Orc related. In Warcraft 3, I always played them, WoW my characters were always orcs (apart from the time I played a blood elf, we don't talk about that), when I used to play Dawn of War with my friends at LAN parties, I could always be found yelling Waaagh in the c
To go along side my shiny new Stormcast force I wanted some of the new Age of Sigmar scenery for them to fight over. I have always liked making and painting scenery, it real quick to do and can look great with very little effort put in.
Before I started I needed to have an idea of where this terrain was going to be set, the Realms of Life and Beasts where the front runners and I didn't decide 100% until I got in to the painting. Life won out as I liked the greenery I could
Having completed the first test model - see previous post WIP - I realised the red scheme was a little too gaudy for my liking. So I sat down and assembled the rest of the box and while doing so decided on a new paint scheme, one that would be quick to paint and allow me to go to town with highlghts once the basic tabletop standard was done.
And here they are:
The scheme is nice and simple and will allow me to quickly paint new units once added. All the paints used are from the A
When I decided on seriously jumping back into AOS, I was torn between which faction to focus on. Focus has always been an issue for me - too many shinies pulling me in several directions at once; Nurgle, Bloodbound, Skaven (Clan Pestilence), Dwarfs. I could go on and I'm pretty sure a lot of you reading this are just as prone to Shiny-Toy-Soldier syndrome as much as I.
However, the Ironjawz release really grabbed me and after reading over them and dribbling at the new models, I took the plu
So I thought that I would open this blog by sharing my recently-rebased Tomb Kings. I have not purchased any models directly for Age of Sigmar yet, instead doc using on rebasing my existing collections. With the new Grand Alliance books, I'm feeling keen on the idea of adding selected units from other factions to my 8th ed armies in order to make a cosmopolitan force for the new game.
The pictures (hopefully they show up correctly) represent about two thirds of my total collection f
Tuesday I did some painting of the maw crusha and brutes since I knew I'd be busy in a few days so I'd have to work on them during the week. Tried the yellow over white primer, four coats in I really don't like the coverage of yriel yellow.
Wednesday small d1 (for my flgs) trials of ironjawz. Well I thought the fyreslayers were hurt in wound based keyword restricted games, well ironjawz are almost unplayable. Severely disappointed in that. Megaboss needs six units of ironjawz for his wa
So I'm playing my first game this Saturday and obviously that means writing a list. My end goal is to have a unit I can just add to my AoS games I'm looking for about 10 models total. As uploaded in other posts I'm using the PestiGor models which came out in 2003. these are mostly mono-pose with only a couple of sculpts. I own 5 PestiGor & the command models.
In Mordheim I will be using the Champion model as my Beastman Chief, Musician as my Sorcerer and will paint the standard to match
My first army was an Orc & Goblin force led by Gromm the Paunch from the Misty Mountain. This was for 3rd and 4th Edition and was the only army I ever collected, painted and gamed with regularly. This was back in the 80's/90's and it helped that I was working for GW at the time. We had a pretty good store campaign going which combined WFB, Mighty Empires and Man O' War to create a truly world-spanning series of games that ran for the best part of a year. Good times.
That world no longer
Club game tonight.
Slayer kills Warrior- dying Warrior kills a Slayer - Slayer kills another Warrior - that dying Warrior kills another Slayer etc etc A never ending fight until one unit is wiped out. Epic

Hobby goal month 2 - Rise of the Seraphon doubles campaign weekend, Warhammer World, Nottingham.
Six weeks after attending my first Age of Sigmar event at Warhammer World, I was back for an action-packed weekend of hobby in Nottingham.
My doubles partner was fellow Hammerer Mat (@MatMaslen) who brought his awesome Fire-Cast Eternals to aid my 'malignant' Seraphon led by the ancient Lord Kroak.
With just shy of x40 players for t
Skulls for the Skull Throne
Hobby Goal Month 1 - Throne of Skulls event, Warhammer World, Nottingham
Turns out, there is no better way to beat those new year (hobby) blues than by attending an event at the start of the year!
Exactly what was needed to ensure I am commited to completing my hobby target for 2016. - 12 AoS events over 12 months.
As my first Age of Sigmar event, I was really intrigued to see how the Warhammer world team would
Embracing the Madness
My 2016 hobby goals
January invariably brings out the blues in me, especially concerning my work/life balance in relation to my hobby. I never know how it starts, whether I just feel a little older, or just a bit defeatist that there's too many projects & not enough time to commit to completing them all.
My job in particular is high pressure & very stressful, which actually makes having such an immersive pastime invaluable to my sanity.
A brief history of (Hammer) time
Let's start from the beginning. Not my own, or my hobby experiences, but with the beginning of the Hammerers.
Back in the day (well, 5 years actually) having moved to the cathedral city of Winchester, I regularly attended 'veterans night' at the local GW store.
The upside was knowing that every Thursday night I had a place to game & plenty of clubmates to play against. The downside was that the store would often be responsible for introducing &
This is the start of a project log for Chaos beasties. I can thank Age of Sigmar for finally getting me started on these - there were always a few Chaos models that caught my eye, but I couldn't commit to a whole army just to paint them (and now I can ... slowly)
To begin with, the Cockatrice. I love the sculpt (although it does prove quite squashy on the battlefield)
A Mordheim warband is pretty simple to put together and because I have this small number of models that I'm not modifying it really makes my choice easy...
Chief, Sorcerer(using the musician from the unit) 5 PestiGor and a Centigor. Not much to paint and nothing to modify. The biggest issue I've had was to stick them to round bases, which was pretty easy!
Priming with Rust-Oleum Surface Primer Matt Grey
I'm specifically going to base these the same as my Skaven I brought to SCGT 2
About a year ago i bought a small job lot of Beastmen on eBay. Nothing major and nothing new, just some old models really. I specifically wanted it for the 8 metal PestiGor. These models are pretty old now but are from a time when Beastmen were originally given Marks of Chaos. The models are twisted by Nurgle and all pestilence, cloaked, hooded and wielding double handed axes.
I'm really excited to paint these though and doing these as a small warband, not even a full unit in AoS, means I c
The door was hung to day and the window frames assembled for the two windows which will open. The door is a nice old reclaimed one, which is about three times the weight it should be! T
That's all that'll probably happen this week unfortunately. There's going to be a delay now while we wait for the glass (double glazing!) to arrive. There might be some shots of the roof going on and more internal work though. I'll keep you posted!
