The Ruins of Fellnan

Recommended Posts

I decided a few months ago that my games of Age of Sigmar needed a narrative setting and to that end I settled upon the idea of an ancient ruined city in the Realm of Life that has recently been rediscovered and is now being fought over. The only problem was actually building the city. I had assumed that GW would release more Azyrite kits at some point so I took a leap of faith and started building up the kits they did have available into the beginnings of my ruins. Of course I couldn't just leave the kits as they were and some converting was done, firstly to incorporate a Realmgate.

I also decided that as the ruin would be over grown I needed some appropriately fantasy like trees. I have plenty from model railway kits and these just weren't hitting the mark. So having browsed the GW range I thought that the Shardwrack Spines would work well as trees for the setting. I recently finished up the first set.... these took a while to do!

Anyway my terrain journey continued apace with more ruins as the kits became available. The townscape sadly isn't as modular as I would have liked and so I only picked up a single kit. It's fine don't get me wrong. Its just that it only goes together in one way and I didn't want large duplicate pieces on the board.

As I started laying out what I had done I realised that I was missing an important element that would really tie the whole city together, some street surfaces. Well thankfully I was able to find an easy and effective way to build these and so I set about creating some streets. I've only completed four sections of these and I'll need a few more for sure. Again like all terrain projects, these take a bit of time to do and so I've only managed four. I was able to incorporate some of the recent debris from the newer kits and I think this works well to theme the pieces for what I've been doing with the Azyrite stuff.

Below you can see some ruins laid out with the street in place, its going to look good once its all together!

I picked up the Enduring Stormvault kit too when that came out. It's huge and storage is going to be a problem. Still it works so well with everything else how could I resist? D8FW5hmW4AEqCTS.jpg.5b96fb353aa62fddf5cedf1b60d50442.jpg

Finally the terrain kits for Warcry were releassed and these I am still painting. Again they are just great, more detailed than the original Azyrite stuff and that means that they don't match 100% when built together but side by side on the table they are amazing and I've been busy getting them done too...

Anyway I think that is enough photographs for now. Once I have a few more pieces done I'll update the thread and hopefully I'll be also able to get some battle shots soon!

Love it! Working on putting some terrain together as well mixing the Azyr ruins and WarCry terrain together. Where did you get the road/ground detail from?

Thanks everyone! I’m still working away on this and probably will be for quite a while. Here are  some recently finished pieces.

     @Redmanphill, what recipe do you use for your stonework? I’ve been brainstorming about how I want to paint my Ravaged Townscape and Shattered Stormvault warcry sets and have been leaning pretty heavily towards something like your beige stonework on at least one of them.

I finished the other half of the ruined prison above, at least that’s what I’m assuming the reason for the barred windows is. These pieces are nicely modular and I can form them up into a small square or instead join them the opposite way with the short colonnade pieces. Not sure what to tackle next but there’s still plenty to do!

...and another one done! It came together quicker than I thought. For this ruin I wanted to emphasise the overgrown ruins of Fellnan a little more and so I added a tree to the walls. I think it worked out fairly well, it adds some height to the piece and a unique character, it’ll stand out a bit more than just another corner piece.

I love the flooring you're giving your pieces, with the grating and the chunk of masonry... i continue to be inspired!

Great work
