Only the swift: Stormcast Vanguard

Recommended Posts

Hi all! Recently started playing and painting a stormcast vanguard chamber force. I really enjoy the look and feel of the newer models! 

So far I have the following1k force built:

Lord-Aquilor

Knight-Venator

2x5 Hunters

3x Palladors

3x Lonstrike Raptors

 

In terms of painting, I'm currently working on gryph chargers and absolutely loving them - making it up a bit as I go along but they are really stretching me and making me try new things. Here's how the one with the most work done to it looks:20180119_232812.jpg.6901168e8e1de53292c2027dd4e2d2ef.jpg

Looking forward to getting this one finished - the other 2 and Aquilor shouldn't be too far behind ?

Pallador is looking great!!

The Gold works great with the Charger colors.

I'm working on my own Palladors and doing the same, making it up as I go.

Keep at it!!

Cheers guys! Managed to get a 1k game in against some seraphon this week. (1020pts actually!) We played knife to the heart, which I discovered is fairly hard to win a major on with this force. A tanky bastiladon clogged up his objective the whole game - hard guy to shift that one!

Really fun though and scraped a minor with the raptors surviving the charge of a teleporting sunblood and taking down a carnosaur in the last turn. 

I am working through a commission at the moment but will hopefully get some vanguard time soon!

Thanks!

Charger is:

Celestra grey all over

nihilakh oxide all over

watered down coelia greenshade all over

drybrush ulthuan grey all over

then skin just glaze with watered down nihilakh and feathers/scales keep adding coelia greenshade.

Finished putting together the last models for the 2k army including a kitbashed Azyros and a small conversion on the raptor prime.20180312_085353.jpg.357651608e762c267b88782df6c200cd.jpg1520845463915808121354.jpg.6ba2f1d1c998dff057773759683d1a2a.jpg15208455110921219694823.jpg.538aaa19247bebb472c072daf9f9aa19.jpg

Started work on my aetgerwings - 3 almost done and another 3 well on the way. Good fun to paint - tried to paint mostly using washes. Also, they are rather tricky models to photograph ?20180316_230204.jpg.aba2352c930c3aecfeb8e866f5a284a5.jpg20180316_230338.jpg.22ddce4598dff19efa8922092a3b2909.jpg20180316_230241.jpg.0500f625fb81d44a5ecffcf1e6c1a927.jpg

Love those Aetherwings. Couldn't decide whether to vary the feather patterns, or change the ribbon colour to help tell the squads apart of my own and this hasn't helped because you've done both and both look good ;)

@Tzaangor Management Thanks! I've only basecoated 3 of the ribbons and was going to keep them all the same colour...but now you've given me food for thought....

Haha, oh dear. I'm looking on my phone and thought you'd gone for pale trees and ribbons!

Well now you say it, I quite like the idea of pale ribbons - As they will be used as 2 units or 3, that could be a cool way to mark them?

After me receiving some good news, my lovely wife took me to town (Southampton, woo!) and told me to pick something up from GW - not being one to disobey, I obliged ?

With all the models I need at the moment purchased, I decided I'd pick up a box of azyrite ruins. My bloodbowl league gang are just about to start a path to glory - so figured some extra terrain would be handy.

Got to say, I'm impressed with how far it goes - it's a reasonable price too. I picked up a load of textured plastic sheets from a local train shop closing down so they made a nice easy base for them - I always like terrain on bases, helps it seem less plonked and will be made to match the board.20180317_231451.jpg.a25b5b912a8e6d91ce76f80b01ef9acf.jpg

The ruins look great based up like that! Even though there aren't any more of them they look much more substantial than the individual pieces laid out separately, which to me just feel so bitty...

I got the ruins finished! Good fun project - nice change of pace @Tommy totally agree - Wouldn't take many kits to make an awesome ruined cityscape. ruins.jpg.848cf6d9232a37ab0669a32d757de90a.jpg

You know what the sheets were called? I have 4 boxes of ruins and looking to do bases for them also but wanted to do it in a different method then I usually do

The maker is called 'Wills' - I used a crazy paving pack on some and cobble on some - they are fairly small sheets that need gluing together and aren't seamless - hence I used sand etc to cover up joins.

I was scrolling though the thread and thought this guy's body and wings were a really good greenstuff reccast at first glance, before realising the starter set models now come in gold plastic. That'll teach me for being colourblind! O.o

The force is looking great @Ademo. What do you have in your 2k list? :)
