Hi all! Been about a month or so, so time for a quick update.
Hobby has been progressing quite nicely on all fronts. Finished off the hurricanum, invested in some contrast paints and vallejo basing paste (huge fan), and binge-watched tons of youtube painting videos. Also had a bit of a change of heart with the list and so I'm now going for an elf-centric Tempest Eye build.
Overall pretty pleased with this. Easily the most complex painting project I've taken on so
Been about a month since the last update. My 1k army is coming together quite nicely. Finished off the darkshards and added snow basing to both units. Just got to work out some heraldry for banners and source a few more freeguild, then the battleline are good to go.
I've also started thinking about how to bring it up to 2k. Current plan is 3 scourge runner chariots, knight incantor, beefing up the darkshards to 20, more dracoths, and a 30-man block of one of the elite infantry choices. Idea
To take a break from painting my darkshards I've made a start on the celestial hurricanum. I think the model holds up very well considering its age, there's lots of great detail and bitz to keep hold of.
It's also probably the most complex kit I've worked on so I thought I'd keep track of my progress.
I've made a couple changes to fit with my army narrative which I think work pretty well. The main one is the replacement of the cart horses with a mutant ogre.

Time for the first blog update! Been pretty busy with real life stuff recently but still managed to get some hobby in. Really enjoyed painting to podcasts in the evenings.
The last couple weeks I've completed my freeguild guard and built up the darkshards. Pretty rusty at painting so took a couple models to get back into it, though overall very pleased with how they turned out. Learnt a couple painting tips along the way too!
Here's all 14, went for a blue and white colour scheme
So I've recently started getting back into Warhammer following a 8yr haitus. Back in the day I used to be a big fantasy player (dwarves, ogre kingdoms, orcs and goblins) and while I was initially a bit miffed on discovering the cataclysmic death of the old world, Age of Sigmar looks like a lot of fun. Plus the models are great.
Having perused the different army tomes and dug out some my old bitz from the attic, I've decided that Cities of Sigmar is the one for me. I like
