  1. The Realm of Ghur. The Flame-Blooded. From the writings of Herr Jaeger. To the north of Kislavia lies a seemingly endless rocky steppe. Across it roam vast herds of grazing beasts and packs of predators such as the Ursus and the Urserine. Some of Kislavia's more nomadic tribes, such as the Kalisha, will often journey here to hunt for meat and furs. The fauna are not the only danger here. The Flame-Blooded are not so much a tribe, but a religion. They consist of a number of scattered groups. Some are bonded by blood, others by friendship. What truly unites the Flame-Blooded is the hardship they endure. Icy winds and freezing temperatures batter them, weathering their flesh and numbing their nerves. Each group or band is led by a powerful, especially tough individual. The individual preaches in the name of Khorrire, the Lord of Fire and Battle. The religion of Korrire revolves around fire that consumes material to release blessed warmth and fire that powers one's spirit and allows them to endure the dangers of Ghur's tundra. Fire is a dangerous element, and battle is one of the most certain ways in which to stir both material fire and spiritual fire to warm the believers of Khorrire. The Flame-Blooded are therefore a fairly aggressive people and often incite battle in the name of their God and in order to bring warmth to their ice-cold homeland. The Flame-Blooded's warlike nature and beliefs often reminded me of the followers of the Chaos Blood God. Indeed a number of the trinkets and markings the Flame-Blooded adorned themselves with were similar in style to the marks of the Blood God. The Slaughterpriest, wielding the fire the tribe worships. Its been a long time since I tried Object Source Lighting, but I think it came out alright in the end. Ten Bloodreavers made from a variety of parts. They are meant to look like feral/barbaric versions of my Freeguilders. Most of them are assembled using the Flagellant kit as it has feral robe wearers. The Champion. Each champion in the army will carry fire as a symbol of their strength. Only the strongest are trusted to carry their god's gift. Horn Blower that was created in the style of my Freeguilders. The Icon Bearer, also in the style of my Freeguilders. The Icon is a Khorne version of the Freeguilder banner. Well, that's it for this post! Hope you like them. I have a few more Flame-Blooded of Khorne to paint, so hopefully those don't take too long!

    Slaughterpriest

    Slaughterpriest made from a Bloodreaver in the Sigmar starter box. His head is from the Flagellant kit, and the pieces he is burning are from the Fireforge Steppe Warrior kit. My Blades of Khorne are themed around tribes from the Wastelands of Ghur that worship a God of Fire who is actually an aspect of Khorne.

    Bloodreavers

    Bloodreavers assembled from a variety of components. Meant to be thematically similar to my Freeguild army of Kislavia.

    Bloodreaver Icon Bearer with a banner in the style of my Freeguild of Kislavia. This group of Reavers used to be a tribe from Kislavia before they turned.

    Ursus Lancers (3)

    If I remember correctly the Hussars had enough 'man-spread' to slot on top of the saddles, but I did sculpt some leather/fur saddles to help them fit better aesthetically. I think the naked Ogre saddles seemed a bit bare in comparison to the Hussar bodies.

    Ursus Lancers (3)

    I don't have enough time to highlight each hair! Here's what i did. All paints are Vallejo. White Undercoat Ivory Basecoat x2 (My Ivory was very watery, not sure if it is meant to be like that) Dark Prussian Blue + Heavy Violet mixed with Glaze Medium (Mix equal parts and wash the whole model to shade everything) Dark Sand (Heavy Drybrush) Wood Grain + Glaze Medium (tints previous colours brownish and blends the drybrush) Dark Sand (Light drybrush multiple times with very little paint on brush until colour builds up) Pale Sand (Same as previous stage but not as many stages so some areas remain darker) Ivory (Same as previous two stages, but even less paint on brush) That should reproduce the effect. Multiple light drybrushes of the same colour will blend better than a drybrush with a paint-heavy brush. My light drybrushes would leave very little paint if brushed on a tissue. Hope this helps.
  10. Great success! I actually finished the last unit I had planned for this project! I think this must be the first time I have ever fully completed a project! Here they are, the Ursus Lancers, AKA, Bear Cavalry! The pictures are not great as the light was poor when I took them. I really like the way they have come out. I love the Polish Winged Hussars with their feathered wings and their great lancers. I struggled with their saddles as the Mournfang saddles are made for Ogre bottoms, which are considerably larger than these small humans! I really like the way they have come out, and think they go well with the rest of the army. Hope you like these as much as I do! There's a few ideas for what's next to surface in the Wastelands of Ghur. The previously mentioned Flame-Blooded were an army I started but I was not happy with the way they were going. They have been slightly delayed due to a small retooling. Hopefully I'll work them out and have some ready by next week!

    Kislevite-style bear cavalry! Bodies from Warlord Games Polish Winged Hussars, mounts from Ogre Mournfang Cavalry. This is a unit I have always wanted to create, ever since that old White Dwarf Supplement featuring a Kislev army list! These are also the reason I wanted to make this Kislev-themed army.

  14. The Realm of Ghur. Ursaria Tribe. From the writings of Herr Jaeger. The Ursaria tribe is the smallest of Kislavia's Great Tribes. However, it is one of, if not the most, influential tribes in the region. Its members are renowned for their taming of the greatest predators of Ghur's tundra. The tribe will bring its heavily armoured lancers and their ferocious Ursus mounts to battle in Kislavia's defense. A regiment of Ursus lancers is a truly terrifying sight, with both rider and mount working in unison due to their mutual respect. Ur-Sak Boris is the leader of the Ursaria tribe. He is easily spotted with his bright red robes and his pristine gold armour. Many legends have been created by the great warrior, his gleaming white blade - Fang - and his enormous mount Kariina. Kariina is a great urserine, a species related to the ursus. Urserine's never stop growing, therefore their size is a great indictor of a specimen's age and exerience in battle. Kariina is huge, and those who are not wary of her will soon be crushed beneath her tremendous hooves or savage teeth. A nice update today! The General on Great Urserine is finished! I fiddled around with the fur and its lip and in the end I do not think it changed much. I think it turned out fine when painted. I really wanted the rider to stand out as a heroic figure, therefore I painted him in possibly the only warm colours featured in the army. His robes are a bright red and his armour a shiny gold, though he still fits into the rest of the army. The base is more or less finished, apart from the ice pond with a skeleton. Vallejo water effects are currectly working their magic their, but it will be a few days of layers before its ready. Next time I'll hopefully done the Ursus Lancers. I'm back at work again so my pace will be slower, but I hope it will continue. After the Ursus Lancers I will need a change of pallette. I am currently planning the next army. Rumours in Kislavia have mentioned the return of the Flame-Bloods... Ghur Travel Writer Herr Jaeger will no doubt be investigating them once he has finished his excursions in Kislavia!
  15. The General of my Freeguild force. He rides his Great Urserine, Kariina. Rider is from Warlord Games Polish Winged Hussars, the Urserine is a converted Stonehorn with a resculpted face and the Urserine's armour are shields from the Fireforge Steppe Warriors box.
