  1. I've started around ten armies before, in all sorts of games, but I've never so much as finished a unit of anything before moving on. Until now! I came back to the hobby just before lockdown 1 hit this year, and it's genuinely been the best thing that isn't my cat through some very dark times. I picked up individual models from Age of Sigmar and 40k, but didn't love painting Ogors and Space Marines, and kept chasing the meta a little bit which resulted in some uninspiring hordes of plastic. So I sold that stressful backlog and did a proper dive into the lore and when I read Gloomspite that was it. Grimdark goblins! Then, the Mork rules appeared in White Dwarf. The Gloomspite range is one of the few in the GW world where I love literally every model, which I realised is the most important. So I bought some hoppers and the Loonboss on squig, and got going. I went through a ton of colour ideas before going with what I have. What really helped was writing a little story about who my guys were. Ahem: This made things easier. This was a gang of grots that hadn't seen the sun, and lived in damp puddles it's whole life. Their weapons are rusty, their cloaks rinsed of any dye, and their squigs are that awful colour slightly nicked from the Morlocks from The Time Machine. I painted up the boss first, because why start with an infantry model? He turned out like this: And here's his terrible bum. I was SUPER happy with him. I love painting browns and muted earthtones the most, and I thought it was a nice contrast with the ridiculous model. So then it was a case of painting the hoppers. These aren't the best photos, but finally for the first time in my hobby career I had a full actual unit: I have a squig herd and some Boingrot Bounders primed and ready to go. I'm really hoping that keeping this blog will make me stick with it, and actually complete enough to learn to play this game. Hope you like em!
  2. Thanks for the input! I'm going to delay buying the spell and revenants and use the 30 dryads (20 and 10) I already have for now, like you've mentioned. Pretty happy with that!
  3. Hey everyone, Just came back to the hobby recently, after giving up when I was poor and 18, though I never played a game. I'm now 34 and just super into so much of what I see GW doing now! I picked up some Nighthaunts and Ironjawz to get back into it, and basically want to collect everything! But I've finally settled on Sylvaneth. Love the lore, the insane models, the relative ease of painting, and am really looking forward to finally learning how to play. The guys in the Games Workshop here are really nice, so I'm excited to get what I have so far painted up and ready for a demo game in the new year. Learning a LOT from hanging round here, though I've no idea what people are talking about sometimes when maths gets involved! Loads to take in, so I thought I'd join up. Cheers!
  4. Hey guys! I'm really new to AoS, wargaming and Sylvaneth. Painted a few Nighthaunt and Ironjawz but my heart lies in the woods, so I'm starting Sylvaneth to actually play with. I've got a box of Dryads (my paint test subjects) and have a Start Collecting on the way to start with. I don't imagine I'll be competing anytime soon, but just for my satisfaction, I'd like to aim for a 1000 point list first. I've not met any other players here yet, and don't know who I'll be up against. I've been through this thread and others and tried to piece together what I can, so I hope this isn't ridiculous! Allegiance: Sylvaneth - Mortal Realm: Ghyran LEADERS Treelord Ancient (300) - General - Command Trait : Gift of Ghyran - Artefact : The Oaken Armour - Deepwood Spell : Regrowth UNITS 20 x Dryads (200) 3 x Kurnoth Hunters (200) -Scythes 3 x Kurnoth Hunters (200) -Greatbows 5 x Tree-Revenants (80) ENDLESS SPELLS Quicksilver Swords (20) TOTAL: 1000/2000 EXTRA COMMAND POINTS: 20 WOUNDS: 67 (Plus a buttload of trees)
