About this blog

This is my second round with AoS and also my first AoS blog. I hope I can match the greatness that exists here. Not that I wanted to stop but my hobby adventures came to an abrupt halt a year and a few months ago. 
Im starting with the continuation of my idea of a state called Matorea in Ghyran. The realease of CoS has allowed me to expand the  idea to a proper Greywater Fastness affiliated city state and surrounding areas. A Stormcast chamber will be present as well. 
 
A start in the right direction I hope.

Shivertooth hits the scene

A more urbanized area. Decided that since it was Duardin’s defending, it may as well be defending the steam powered generator  This is an actual steam engine. It used to take water in the boiler, heated by a tray with fuel oil in it and it powered a type of anvil with a conveyor belt that is now lost. This was the type of toy from my childhood (where it showed up for Christmas one year years ago (!). Yes , a toy with oil fire and steam. What could go wrong? Anyways, it’s now scenery on a tab

The noose tightens

Krasbog was really hurt. He was happy with the victory and thinking that he should expand his work. Time to bring in his good smashin buddy Shivertooth  and his heavier fist while he healed and waited for the bulk of his Squig army to muster.  His plan was dead cunnin. Let Shivertooth maul the Duardin force, bleed himself silly and maybe if he was lucky, find his head rolling down the gutter. Nottin simpler. The survivors of both armies would make a fine bbq while they moved in.  The targe

Matorea is Attacked

I had a meeting engagement with about 990 pts each of Gloomspite against CoS Krasbog is the Loonboss on a Squig and General LaTouche is the freeguild General on a griffon.    Time for a proper (if not smaller) bashin. Don’t feel like using the Fort just yet. This will be a vanguard of the mushroom popping squigs of Krasbog. I’ll call it his welcoming committee.  The Rubyville Auxiliaries are going out to meet them. Kind of on the outskirts of town. Some farms and what was a

GitStuffed’s Clan of Resentments

The first AoS army I started was a mixture of skaven and beastmen. Since acquiring Warcry, I can now add a chaos contingent.  Matorea requires nothing less than many antagonists to test its metal over and over. Here will be 2490  pts of angry creatures ready to wallop the order forces and then each other when it’s done.

Fort Stanley

Seeing as Rubyville to the east got some buildings and a ruby, the west is starting to cry favouritism. The beginnings of Fort Stanley. The roofer left behind some blue sm. Didn’t quite make it to the dumpster. The walls have got a start with ideas about a front gate and a tower I made/had from awhile back.

Some more Fluff

I feel the fluff flowing. There will be a town between the Duardin mountain deeps of the Maddening Whorl and the city of Matorea. It will be called Rubyville. Tentatively because the Duardin gifted the town for coming to their aid and saving the contents of a valuable caravan that was heading for the port. It was never discussed as to the contents but it had to be valuable as they gave them a mined ruby of incredible proportions. This has nothing’s to do with the fact my eldest cat is named Ruby

A brief history of Matorea

Decided to add some fluff to this would be city state. Props to @Baron Klatz for coming up with the realmgate ideas.   This also adds a future grievance between the Lumineth and the Deepkin as the difference between the high born and the failed experiment resulting in the Idoneth.    Matorea  Located in the realm of Ghyran on the Northern Peninsula west of the The Battle of Pale Gorge and North of the festermere realmgate is the city/port of Matorea that has a Greywater Fastness af

The Matorean Lodge of Greywater

Came up with a proper name for the Duardin!       These are from the Skulls Pass starter set (?). I remember getting 2 sets of the dwarfs and I still can’t locate the mule train.  it’s the next project and I’m waiting for 100  25 mm bases from China for the 80 stabbas and shootas and I just ordered 100 slotted 25 mm bases from Spain. Think I’ll be waiting awhile for both. Until then, it’s the square bases.  Also, a squig ran from One the herd’s awhike back so I had to import

Some new recruits

I’ve been reading through the GH 2019 on the narrative campaign theme. A broader plan is forming. The Streets of Death sound amazingly good. I need more terrain. I have lots of 40K buildings and unbuilt boxes. Wondering if anyone has any ideas or seen conversions of this material to AoS. As I’m not playing 40k for the foreseeable future, I might be able to convert some of these buildings. some objectives will be needed as well. Made one and added a battlemage, a madcap shaman and an unmounted. L

First Battle for the Relocation Orb

A force of 2000 each of Matorean Disciples  and Shivertooths Headbangers  are taking a chance to bash each other up. I have very little terrain, all of it homemade and I need. A lot more.  first round, Matoreans don’t like to run, but the guns were doing some damage. Tank with commander managed I kill with the repeater handgun, 2 with the steam cannon and 7 with a 3rack hellblaster. 4 more ran after but there are a lot of them. The other hellblaster doubled and wounded itself. Other tank misse

Matorean Disciples of Sigmar

Finally finished a project that had its roots in 2005 white dwarf 302. A devoted army. That became the calling card for my warhammer experience. When AoS came about, I could put all the units into an army. As it progressed, I converted all my units plus added some.  Today, this group can be a legitimate Order army (with altar and warrior priest) or a Grey Water Fastness army with some modifications. What other game can allow this to happen? This is the reason I became a fan and will suppo

Hobby room finished for now

I had planned for an 8’ table to complete the scene but I’ll hold off till I get the feel for this layout. Some shelves for armies and terrain and a cabinet for my much reduced book collection.  Very economical shelves - painted aspenite and cut up old cabinet doors for braces. Cost me in total $22 and my time.  Now to unpack, build/paint models and delve into some much needed terrain.

The Growing Workshop

The table is in. Very high just as I want it. The old GW tables were a lot lower and my back was nearly broken after each game. As a new rule that just came to me, only finished models are worthy of being on the table. A self imposed rule to finish my units.  Next on the agenda is an ikea wardrobe thingy that will be for books. After that, wall mounted shelving, 8’ x 16”, 5 rows to hold terrain and unused army’s. The final piece will be an 8’ table. Definitely no urgency on that.   Also of c

Krasbog’s Antagonistic Looney’s

The army so far. True AoS miniatures are the 40 scuttlings (acting as shootas), 10 spider riders, (I lost 10 others and 2 Scuttlebosses in my move + my gryphound!) 5 Boingrots, Loonboss on a Giant Squig. I just hauled over the 19 squig herd (lost 1guy as well), 10 squig hoppers, 3 rockgut trolls and the puny Giant From my old night goblin army.  40 more shootas and 40 stabbas still need to cross the isle. The Looncurse box still has to offer up a squig herd and 5 more bounders.  The night go

Boss Krasbog of the Looncurse Antagonists

Is this guy freakin cool or what?  I think only a boss on a mangler could be cooler 😺 I hope I don’t mangle his paint job.      ‘Let me read to you a passage of your imminent deaths you  illiterate Boingrot Bozo’s’

Lord Aquilor and 5 more Liberators

Here is the General of this group.  since the vanguard hunters are battleline with him, he’s it. Never mind the fact that I don’t own any hunters...,yet.  Most assuredly, this army will look good as a group and seen 4 ft away. What I imagined and what the reality is, is very different.  Also, the last of the leaders   the Lord Exorcist is next on the line

Antagonist- Boinggrots!

Just assembled 5 of them. First time with the new glue bottle and it saved what little sanity I have left. Don’t know what my fortes is but it’s not building. I find it a pain. Necessary but painful. My son used to build everything. He didn’t like painting and I loved it although I’m never really happy with the results.  havnt decided on colours yet but was wondering if there’s a hierarchy in colour. For the cavalry, maybe white?

First Model

My first Matorean Knight Excelsior Chamber hero.  This model is the one that put the Stormcast hooks into me. Loved the model and the fluff. Very much the same way the 40K Librarian started my whole 40k adventure.  I still need to touch him up and base him but I am very happy to see him battleworthy. Next up is the Lord Arcanum.

Matorean League of Disciples

So I’ve dragged out the Cities of Sigmar Greywater Fastness army 2430 pts.  I figured with Stormcast like the Knights Exclesior sharing their city, there are no shades of grey so a Sigmar dedicated army would fit there judging eyes. I only have to convert the steamtank with commander to a more dedicated look.  As the Matorean Chamber grows, they will augment their army with worthy cannon fodder with these fanatics.  I really cheaped out on the basing for most of this army so now I have to

Cause I like them 3 Liberators x 5 1 castigators x 5 The Looncurse will fill out my gloomspite and add a few allies from the woods near the city. Krasbog’s Gitz are most of my old night gobbo’s repurposed plus the looncurse will give me a gobbo army of 2480 points   Shivertooth’s HeadBangers are my old ork army repurposed to the big waagh. 2480 points of
