So after a month I have finished the get started stormcast eternal boxed set.
I have had so much fun and satisfaction painting them up and can thoroughly recommend the range.
My inspiration comes from listening to the hallowed Knights audio dramas and the tales of Tarsus and his mission to seek audience with Nagash!
Its an awesome set and really gets me immersed into the background.
This is very much just the beginning of these and I'll be adding plenty more narrative themed
After a lengthy hobby break I'm back!
The audio dramas have been a huge inspiration for me and I got the stormcast bug!
Chatting with local Rotherham GW manager Liam (awesome dude!) he mentioned they had started an AoS event based around building a new force and expanding it over several months.
Picking up the stormcast getting started box I've been really loving the models. And they are a joy to paint!after the getting started box is done i'll be adding judicators and some more
It's been a while sadly, so busy in non hobby life!
My latest efforts have been to get a couple more blood reavers finished, my mighty lord of Khorne completed and purchased Gorechosen for yet more awesome models!
Not a great deal I know but some progress!
Ive also assembled 10 blood warriors to join the ranks of the bloodbound.
So my current plan for the rest of the year is me trying to be realistic. Finish 20 blood reavers, Bloodstoker and 10 blood warriors.
Time is flying by this month!
So with the new White Dwarf enjoying awesome, and deserved, success, I have cracked on and finished my free slaughterpriest for my bloodbound. I have admittedly already painted one up for my warband so this time I thought I would add another character.
The aspiring Deathbringer is currently being sold with the old Champion of Khorne model so I thought I would update is presence on the battlefield with something new.
May I present my Aspiring Deathbrin
After a few crazy weeks at work I return!!
Finally got some hobby in this week and finished all the base coats and shading on my first batch of blood reavers.
I am really enjoying building my bloodbound. AoS is infectious! My small warband is growing and creating its own character as I paint up units and characters.
Ive managed to catch up on all my pod casts and particularly annoying recent topics regarding painting time and optimising painting opportunities.
picked up my ne
A quick update...
So, frustratingly, I have not gotten much done last couple of weeks.
Real life stuff etc...
Anyway, I have managed to get some more done on the blood reavers and really love the new bloodbound range.
However, just recently I picked up a couple of audio books starring the hallowed knights and one mannfred von Carstein!
I am completely enthralled with the character and built this guy...
Still early days but I think I'll model him in such a way h
We have those moments when we realise out painting style has changed. This is normal over time as we pick up new skills as improve outr hobby life!
It seems overnight my paint style has changed and it's all a bit weird!
I picked up Scyla Anfingrimm recently to enter into my local GW store competition.
It seems I've changed tack completely on how I approach miniature painting but only a week or so since I painted my last mini!
I'm putting this down to inspiration so will chalk
What a week!!
Just when I needed to get in some painting I have hell of a work week!!
Still, got my blood secretor completed and started my blood reavers.
And this horror is getting ready for paint...
I want to get my initial warband painted but No! Endless obstacles!
But I battle on and here I present what I will have done to start my global campaign battles.
Mighty Lord of khorne
Slaughter priest with hack blade
Working weekends...yeah! But I managed a bit of hobby on my break!
Ive got a couple of weeks until global campaign begins.
My humble force will be around 40 models with a mix of bloodbound and Khorne daemons made up of units I like the look of.
My store is using an escalation campaign so I can keep adding to my force.
I managed to get this chaps base colours and washes done today. I'm totally blown away with the new GW models, they make the older stuff look childlike in compa
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
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
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
