    The Painting Contract - March 2019

    Hi all, first time pledge on here. My goals this month are the following: 24 Squig Herd fully painted Convert a second Loonboss on Giant Cave Squig (from the mangler kit fitting on a 50mm base) Tidy up the conversion of my first LoGCS (same as above) If I meet my goal before month's end I'll build some Boingrot Bounderz.

    Smashin' Squig Gitz

    Hi all! So with the Gloomspite release I went absolutely squig mad pre-ordering 5 Hopper boxes, 2 Squig Herd boxes, 4 Mangler boxes and a few other Gitz that took my fancy, one of the Mangler boxes I am butchering to create 2x Loonboss on giant squig (not a fan of the finecast model and don't want to buy two copies of the Forgeworld 3 model set). So quite a lot of squigs to work through but it's going to be fun! With most of the minis built now I am beginning to paint them up! so thought I would post my progress here, I have decided to go for the classic colours with the pale grot skin shown on boxes and I want to try doing the armour plates in yellow when I get to those. So far I have fully painted one model, I felt compelled to do the Squig Gobba as my first Gloomspite model and I must say I am very pleased with the results, I've had my eye on that model for years... it's so full of character! Next up will be my 24 Squig Herd. Hope you guys like the Gobba!

    best weapon loadout for brute squad?

    I've tried a unit of 10 with gore-hackas recently and within 2 combat rounds they minced up 10 liberators and 5 retributors whilst only losing 1 in retaliation, so in my opinion it's pretty solid and the more reliable choice if you want 10+ brutes maximizing attacks, 2 gore choppas and the klaw+bash combo always helps. It is a great unit to throw warchanter buffs on.

    Just received my order of squigs, I was not expecting it but the squig dice seem to be made of rubber... so be careful, THEY BOUNCE!!! 🤣

    Wow! What an incredible army you have, I absolutely love your paint style / technique and the basing is superb also, keep up the great work!

    AoS 2 - Gloomspite Gitz Discussion

    The base of my list is probably going to be something like this. What I'd like to do is add a caster or two (Maybe Fungoid Shaman or Skragrott if he fits) and trying out some of these endless spells, I'm also interested in splitting that mangler squig set into 2x Loonboss on giant squig to follow my Manglerboss around. The Dankhold Troggoth isn't necessary but I love the model and it gives a nice bravery buff I assume. Leaders Loonboss on Mangler Squigs - General Command Trait - Fight another Day Artifact - The Clammy Cowl - Insert Caster Here - Battleline Squig Hoppers x20 Squig Hoppers x20 Squig Herd x24 Other Boingrot Bounders x10 Mangler Squigs Mangler Squigs Dankhold Troggoth Battalions Squigalanche

    I would only take the Loonboss on Mangler as your general if you plan on going full squig with multiple hopper units (I sure will be!). The bonuses you receive for using Skragrott the Loonking as general is otherwise too strong to pass up for a lesser leader in my opinion, not really worth using the Manglerboss for 1 unit of hoppers, also note Manglerboss command ability can be used without needing to be your general. So really depends how you want the core of your army to be.

    Some Smashin' Ironjawz

    Finished my first brute, he's an albino and will probably stay unique in my army, at some point I'll probably add battle damage to both this guy and the megaboss. His pale skin made the other ladz uneasy at first as everyone knows green is best, this fella overcame persecution with fierce savagery and a few good 'eadbutts. The ladz have noticed enemies cowering (more than usual) at the sight of this pale orruk as he charges their lines, leading them to believe it is a blessing from Mork.

    Hoppers are on 20mm I think? So very expensive for models that small (if they only come in 5's) in my opinion.

    AoS 2 - Gloomspite Gitz Discussion

    I have my fingers crossed for 10 hoppers per box, especially at the propose price above. Going by the first image they showed with the reveal, although there are multiples of the same squig body they can be built unique from one another with plenty of face and rider options. I can't see 5 being more expensive than 10 regular squigs with herders so that is my hope. *Waits for hopes of fielding 2 units of 20 to be shattered*

    Some Smashin' Ironjawz

    Thanks guys! Really appreciate the feedback. I'm going to be honing my skills at painting orruk skin with the brutes and experiment on different tones, I want to try an albino orruk using nurgling green as the base tone and build up brightness with pallid wych flesh perhaps. The skulls in that set are all separate so I had to place each one individually and build up to fit the Megaboss' pose, took me roughly an hour as there are about 100 or so skulls there.

    It's on the WarhammerTV youtube channel, Destruction Rising Teaser Trailer. It looks very Moonclan focused but who knows!

    Some Smashin' Ironjawz

    Brutes will be next up for painting with 15 built and 5 more after Christmas, these will be set up as 2 units of 5 and 1 unit of 10. In the attached picture you see I have personalised one of the bosses to stand out above my 2 others, this is so both I and my opponent can easily identify and remember who the Ironfist Big Boss is.
  15. Hi Guys, I have only very recently dived into AOS both with the models and gaming which I enjoy very much so far picking up the Ironjawz as my main army focus. I am looking at building towards a sizeable WAAAGH! of 2750 points mainly to play with my small group of friends, I have so far played at a maximum of 1260 (winning every game I might add) but something feels off since I am using a mostly unpainted army. The paint scheme I have gone for is pretty much the Bloodtoofs as when I first saw the Ironjawz models I immediately decided on red armour and yellow details (A scheme I had used long ago on a few 40k Orks). Now I'm the kind of person who doesn't want to just follow the existing fluff to the letter and would rather my army have their own fluff so my current Idea is that several fists of the Bloodtoofs led by a particularly strong and impulsive Megaboss have broken off from the others to rampage in the Ashlands of Aqshy smashin' against the forces of Khorne for endless fun! (I may be slightly inspired by the story of Tuska Daemonkilla from 40K) Anyway! the point of this is to post painting / modelling progress for my army ( C&C very much appreciated) and to expand the fluff taking opinions into account. Now lets start with some pictures of my Footboss which is so far the only painted mini in my Ironjawz collection, I do feel as though I probably should have painted some brutes first for practice but I was so darn excited!
