About this blog

A place for my intermittent updates about my hobby.

Tzaangors

Tzaangors

The Tzaangors are ready to march!  I got these guys done over the last few weeks.  The newer set I made as many of the mutants and great weapons I was missing as I could and the paint job is a little lighter on the skin but it’s not all that noticeable.  I feel pretty good about how the two batches blend together.  I have got a few sets of enlightened and a shaman are on the way so I’m looking forward to assembling them and putting the paint to the plastic to finish churning this Tzeentch horde

Chanters of Change

Chanters of Change

I finally got the acolytes finished after 3 years.  It was surprisingly quick I suppose all the painting between then and now has paid off.  I plan on getting the eyes of the nine for the two extra acolytes to finish it at a cool 30.  Plus I would love to convert that magister as the head on it is awful.   I glued more bits to my objective marker aka flux cairn as well.  The crystal is something my older brother gave me many years ago before we both moved to separate parts of the country so it

Screamers of Tchar n army shot

Screamers of Tchar n army shot

I pulled these guys off in two days.  I gotta say they were a lot easier than the flamers and gave me a satisfied feeling once they had a healthy clunk when the basing was finished.  After these I think I’m going to finish the silver tower acolytes I’ve had lying around for a few years or start the rest of the horrors.  I might do an army shot later to see how it looks altogether.   here’s a few pictures of the army

Flamers of Completion

Flamers of Completion

I got the flamers finished and based as well as the curseling done.  The curseling was fun and got me thinking of doing some of the new chaos warriors if I could get my hands on some.  Next is either screamers or horrors, I haven’t made up my mind yet.

Flamers

I got a new hobby area in our new place and I decided to work on my tzeentch stuff while my wife is away.  I started late in the night but I got most of the bass coats done.  The heads and hands may look pink but they are a watered down dark cherry color that I am going to dry brush a lighter shade onto.  I want them to be bright and kind of silly looking so I want to try and paint light shades on them.

Treekin

Treekin

I finally finished these treekin after getting them in December and setting them in alcohol for 5 months.  The caked on glue just peeled off and I ended up with these.  I know they arnt really sylvaneth but I like these guys and painting them was fun.  I also converted a spellsinger into a branchwraith I think of as a thornwych like ylthari from shadespire.  
 

Progress report: Redux Quarantine Ed

It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here but a recent thread got me thinking of my unfinished projects.  I based a bunch of my treekin I had soaking some December when I got them as a gift for Christmas.  A cheap 20 us and 5 months and I gave a cool unit.  I plan on getting the treelord from that generation as well.  If I was to play I would hope my opponent wouldn’t care if I allied them in. Summon a lifeswarm next to them and they could do their job.  My next aspersions are to get 3 se
 

Contrast paint experience

This is the first time I’ve used contrast paint on anything and I feel like I used it the right way but the way it runs on flat surfaces and often leaves difficult to reach areas like the tops of these kurnoths is kind of frustrating as you need to use a light base coat for them.  I think it works better than just slapping agax earthshade on them but I’ll relegate this stuff to just another tool I can use to diversify my color range in my Sylvaneth collection.   As an aside here are some bett

Tree-revenants

I made a little progress on my tree-revenants and arch revenant.  I dry brushed a tan/grey Mix to try and brighten them up.  I did a little on the durthu as well.  Let me know what you think.

Duardin and Darklings

Duardin and Darklings

Due to being laid off at work I am having to get rid of a lot of my collection.  I’m not happy about it but you gotta do what you gotta do.  I was thinking about the history of my little project and came up with this.  Hope you enjoy. Deep under the surface of Arranoc a mutual bargain was struck between Darkling exiles and Duardin prospectors.  The Thrall hosts would dwell close the the surface and aid the Duardin in protection against their mutual foes as well as ample trade.  The Darkling

Brown teeth

I got some work done on my squig riders last night.  It’s been some time since I have painted so it was good to get back on track.  I started with some 40k Eldar that got me motivated to finished my collection.  These guys are not done yet but with some more time I think they will turn out good.

Slow moving

I dry brushed a few squigs with an orange and they as slowly becoming the tomato knights of yore.  It’ll be fun to see how they come along as a unit.

Recent Expansions

I haven’t had much time to work on my projects so I haven’t had much time to post any new progress.  My wife got me an Idoneth Battalion and another set of squigs and I bought a considerable about of tzeentch daemons doubling my chaos army which has been neglected for over a year and a half.  I still am not sure how to proceed with the squigs. I’m either gonna drybrush them or put a darker red wash on them.  I’m tempted to base coat them then throw in the contrast paint just to see what it

Squigalanche

I’ve gotten all the looncurse models assembled and I now a sizable Gloomspite Gitz army to paint up.  I’m waiting to get a red ink wash before I finish them so we will see how long that takes.   I was doing a little thinking and I’m thinking of having these guys come as a newly arrived faction to Arranoc that came while the isle shifted into the realm of life near the time the bad moon was near the area and after the moon left the squig herd found its way to one of the outer druid-kingdoms

Looncurse

I finally got my looncurse box today.  I’m pretty excited to get back on to working on Sylvaneth though I have started painting some of my Squigs.  Well anyway I took some pictures for anyone who wants to see.

I’m so weary of painting stormcasts

I’m so weary of painting stormcasts

I am finally getting around to posting some progress in here.  It took me over a month to do it but I got through the slug of painting a bunch of starter set stormcasts which though was fun replication my original method for hallowed knights on so many at once made even the smaller steps take hours.  The majority of them look really good for my standard of painting but that graph-charger looks hideous.  Once I get around to painting what’s left the second stromstrike box my wife got me out of th

Nighthaunts

Nighthaunts

I made good progress this week and finished the few remaining models.  All that is left are the banshees and that won’t take long.  I’m thinking of getting more as well as the mortarch and craven king to finish the army.  Once the army. Is at the 2000 mark I want to try a game with them and see what that looks like.

Reapers and rasps

Reapers and rasps

I finally finished the chainrasps and based the Grimghast Reapers as well as the shackleghiest.  Aside from some touch ups they are done and I am moving on to the knight of shrouds.  Next week will see the rest of the sheets done and hopefully a nice cohesive army

Chainrasp Horde

I have made some progress on my soul wars set.  I have the chainrasps about 70 percent done  as well as the spirit torment.  These guys have been particularly easy to get through especially after all the other nighthaunts I have painted the last few months.  Once these guys are finished it’ll be off to the reapers and stalkers with the other characters and then after that possibly the stormcasts.  I will say that painting all these ghosts has been a lot of fun and I will feel a little sad once I

Musterings

I finally got some shelf space cleared to set up my models.  Seeing it now it seems like a lot of models but I know it isn’t enough hahaha.  The chaos army is kinda lacking sitting in the back corner and that sea of dryads takes up a lot of space.  It is really nice to see them all set up together for once.

Nighthaunt ahoy!

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

Trees of all Colors

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

Sylvaneth

I have finished assembling and primed the Sylvaneth.  I’m thinking of using a few different shades of brown should give it a nice diversity.  I have been waiting for a spirit of durthu for a long time and I’m happy to finally have one.

Bladeghiests and Dreadscythes

I finished a few units of my nighthaunts the wife got me for Christmas.  They were surprisingly easy to paint after the two week affair with the orruk boys.  I got some new paints from the crafts store so the base color on the dreadscythes is different from the rest of the army but I am ok with that.  I really enjoyed painting the dreadscythes despite my appreciation to to hormagaunt arms they have.   When end I had primed the bladeghiests the spray paint had been sitting for too long

A little overdue

Hello everyone it has been almost 8 months since I have been able to post anything on my hobby blog.  In real life my wife has had both a tummy tuck and BBL in one year so as you can imagine the finances have been short in the hobby department.  Now that the holidays have come and gone I acquired several units of nighthaunts so I’m looking forward to painting some more ghosts.  Over the last two weeks I got motivated to paint some of my Orruks and I ended up finishing my close combat boys.  Here
