I've been working on my Stormcast host on and off now for nearly a year, with the majority of what I'd call "bulk" units completed or in the final stages of painting (5 more vanguard hunters are finished but not pictured, I have 15 protectors and 5 decimators along with two Concussor conversions to paint) which frees me up to do the most enjoyable part of the army. Characterful Conversions!

I've just about finished the modelling on my Lord Commander for the host (Unique model, first of the host, general) who is in dire need of a name so suggestions are more than welcome. But most of all I'd love suggestions of characters, artillery pieces or monsters that people would like to see converted up that fit the theme of stormcast so that I can add them to the host!

C&C Welcome as always!

The Lord is mostly Lorgar, he's the most slight of the primarch models so seemed like the best fit though I fully intend to use Corax to make a Celestant prime at some stage. And I'm not sold on my basing scheme for the Raptors currently, it'll either be that or a dead earth and bones style base to go better with the Anvils background

Those are some lovely looking models! The basing looks awesome even if I'm not the biggest fan, to me it almost looks like the model and the base are melting together ( might be on purpose, still looking dope but not my cup of tea).

The one base I really like is your commanders, where did you get that?

Nice Paintjob. That gloweffekt is dang hot ;).

The only thing I'm wondering. Why du three of your Vanguard Hunters have 32mm Bases instead of the normal 40mm Bases?

That would mostly be down to batch building at 3 am :P

In all 5 of my 10 ended up on the wrong bases, which will be corrected once I do armywide basing so they just got left as they are for now as when painting it didnt cause huge impact.

Great to see you come over to TGA, Melcavuk!

What about the great Stormcast you made out of the Slaughterpriest? 

Can't await to see your Lord Commander all painted up!

I sold all my old Stormcast so I just have historic pictures of the old heroes sadly. Always a depressing moment looking back at a 3k army sold that I'm essentially building again

Cheers guys, having dug through my vault of photos here's the key heroes from my last Stormcast army!

If anyone has ideas for as yet unmade hero roles in a Stormcast army or unit types let me know and I'll get building!

Awesome work, Melcavuk!  I envy people who can get an army together anymore, I think I'm gonna be stuck in skirmish land for a good while.  I really like the gold and black scheme against the blazing of the weapon blades.  As I'm not a fan at all of the stock helms, I also like your use of Space Marine helms.  Do you have a hard time getting them to fit with the gorgets (neck armor)?  I've been thinking of using some MK3 helms for a cuple of my low-fantasy-feel Stormcast, but had been wondering.

Cheers, if you trim down the back of the neckguard you can situate the helmet fine. I tend to remove the neck piece of the helmet itself so that I can replace it with grenstuff as the ball of the head for marines is marginally larger than the stormcast sockets.

My full 15 protectors are now finished and based (barring cleaning up the rims) these mark the last of my prepped Stormcast being painted until I can replace my compressor to start on the next load!

Unbelievable, superb army - I love all the conversions (the new helms look so much better than the normal ones, and your Lord Commander is truly unique and imposing) and the paint scheme is both striking and beautiful!!!!

 

Really, really impressive, congrats...

I was wondering if U remember what head pieces you used for the Protectors (The helmets), because I freaking love it! Hopefully you still know, because I know it's quiet an old post already. Would help out a lot!!!
