It’s my iNtent to put this army on parade next month. 17 more war dollies to paint, and then I’d have a 2000 point army to put on it, counting the 200 points for the gore pilgrim battalion.

Armies on parade requires a board, so I’ve started work on one. Never done any scenery before,  it why not jump right in at the deep end... First army, first board, lots of firsts in this project.

Couple of wips below. Still quite a ways to go, but I think it’s shaping up nicely.

Great work. Love the feel that you have gotten with the models!

Thanks very much. Classic barbarians are my favourite kind of barbarians.

As the progress on the board slows down - no one mentions the multiple 24+ hour drying times in the instructional videos, I’ve gone back to painting war dollies for the army. 

Shown below is my LoK on ‘juggernaut’, and the early wip of what will be a khorgorath. Definitely on track to have this completed by armies on parade next week. Really excited.

In Neil Gaiman’s ‘the Graveyard Book’, there’s a character called ‘The Indigo Man’. He’s the ghost of a Pictish warrior who’s haunting the graveyard. I love Neil gaiman, and I really wanted to make my own indigo man. I think of him as a ghost of one of my tribes old lords, kept aliveish by hate alone.

In game, he’s a khorgorath. I’m very happy with how it’s turned out.

So, I won gold at armies on parade. That was pretty cool. I also got to put my army in the cabinet in Warhammer Edinburgh. I’m really, really happy about that. When I was a little ‘un, it was always a goal of mine to have a figure in the cabinet. Now, I get a whole army!

Going to put a pin in this army for a while. There’s quite a few bits and pieces I’d like to add, but I need a break from painting bone armour.

And because I realise I never posted it here, here’s my step by step on making the scenic board. 

First time building a board, and I was pleasantly surprised at how well it went. One disaster when pouring water effects, but aside from that, it behaved. I’ll definitely look into making more scenery in the future. Still got heaps and heaps of supplies left.

awesome work  - both figures and terrain.

stream / waterfalls are brilliantly done.

Thanks a lot. Honestly, aside from the top of the waterfall not being secured for the pour and leaking, it was quite easy. I'd make it a lot thicker if I was going to do it again. The drop pools especially should have been quite a bit larger. I'd planned based on the bare polystyrene, and not accounted for the rocks I was going to add, which makes it look a little bit on the small side.

any blogpost / tutorial about for your work on the water?

Not really. Are you asking about the mini's bases, or the water on the board?

There’s an amount of doubling up here, and for that, I’m sorry.

 

a friend with a decent camera took some photos of the army in the cabinet, and I’m very happy. Hopefully this will be the last dump before I start my next plog. It’s a little more old school than this project. I’m a sucker for guys that live in forests, so wood elves were an easy choice for the next army.

My favourite thing about this army is that you play with them. Too many amazing armies never get to see the light of day, and other players don't have the pleasure of playing against them. Love every thing here!

While I’ve definitely built them with playing in mind, I have to confess- I’ve never played a game of AoS. The last time I played was in the bretonnians vs lizardmen edition. I do keep meaning to get round to it, but it’s been quite a solitary hobby for me since I picked up brushes again 2years ago.

Lad at my work plays, and we’ve been humming and hawing about having a game. Maybe some day soon they’ll see the tabletop!
