  1. I picked some tufts up, adding them this weekend. I'll have progress shots up probably Sunday!
  2. Once I had the bases down I needed to start coming up with a color scheme for my army. I wanted to go pale and more ghostly at first but then after browsing around online as well as trying out a couple test models I came up with this general look: You might ask yourself where I came up with that scheme? I would love to pass on a great video that inspired me to give it a try, I took this video as my starting point down the path of creating a color scheme for the army: I loved the look of those ghouls, the only thing that sucked was the paints were all in the old style paints so I had to go about and update my painting list but overall after spending a couple days on the models this is the progress I made: 1 Crypt Ghast Courtier 10 Crypt Ghouls 3 Crypt Horrors 1 Crypt Haunter Courtier Started on the Zombie Dragon Here are some shots of the progress: Finishing up the week with starting on the Zombie Dragon (I started playing with the wing)...
  3. I was lucky to have a few days off work... So I set off on a bid to try and get most of the mundane items finished. I've included some of the various shots of progress through those days (No Particular order): I have to say that after the first week I was quite happy with my progress, getting the mundane stuff out of the way helped push me forward and ahead. I was now itching to try and get some of the models painted... I finished the week with the near completed base: (Next post I'll show you some progress shots of the actual miniatures!)
  4. The first thing that I needed to do was figure out the right basing technique for my army, I wanted something out of my comfort zone and that would add to the overall presentation of the army. So off to YouTube I went in hopes to find some ideas. One video that caught my eye was: I wanted to do something like that but wasn't sure if I could pull it off. I watched the video a few times then went off to Home Depot to pick up some wood filler and the necessary dyes. Here are the results from two test bases I made (the hole is where I decided to be pinning the model): * Also note that in order for the cracked paint to do the work it needs it requires pretty much overnight to set. The first image was after a couple hours of drying and the rest of the shots were after I put some paint to them and added the bits of grass: I was feeling pretty pumped, I found the style I was going to use! I quickly checked it against a couple of the models that I had built to get a better idea of how it would look.
  5. Hi! This is my first blog ever... I am hoping it'll be interesting, informative, and also might inspire one or two people. I am going to document out my very first large project. Preparing the Army (What I ended picking up): 2 older boxes of Crypt Ghouls (10 in a set) 1 box of Crypt Horrors 2 boxes of the King Vlagorescu's Ghoulish Host Flesh-Eater Courts Battletomb Some random bits of information: Took me about 3-4 days to clip, clean, and put together the various models so I could get them ready to prime Had to be very careful when figuring out what units that I would assemble, I was pulling my hair out trying to get the right combinations! In the end the units that I went with were: 1 Abhorrant Ghoul King on Zombie Dragon (He's going to be fun... *Grins*) 1 Abhorrant Ghoul King 5 Crypt Ghast Courtiers 2 Crypt Haunter Courtiers 1 Crypt Inferno Courtier 2 Varghulf Courtiers 1 Terrorgheist 2 units of Crypt Horrors (Had enough to do 2 separate units with a max of 6 Horrors in each unit) 2 units of Crypt Flayers (3 Flayers in each) 4 units of Crypt Ghouls (Total of 80 ghouls with the option to do up to four separate units)
  6. I just joined up, I'm near Northgate. Trying to get out to Redclaw at least once a week to play AoS and play weekends at my place.
  7. Indeed! I love that group, I'm Jordan on that side! Kinda jealous of the group you have down in Calgary lol!
  8. I'm representing death as a Fleshcourt army. Seeing as I'm in Canada I am hoping we can bring down the Living City! *Grins*
  9. Hello everyone! I recently got back into wargaming in a way I never thought I would! (Was an avid warhammer 40k fan previously and swore never to touch Fantasy as the lore in 40k was just amazing) Up until last year I would have classified myself more as a "hobbyist" who spent most of his time painting and collecting the odd models here and there. (I also had boxes and boxes of unfinished starters.. lol) When Age of Sigmar came out I had a friend nudge me to try it, mostly because he had a ton of fantasy models he hadn't been able to use in ages! I picked up a starter Nurgle daemon force (that way if I didn't enjoy I could always shift back to 40k.. heh) That was months ago... I've played easily two or three dozen games collected large Nurgle Daemon, Rotbringer, and Fleshcourts forces. I have a bunch of other projects on the go and am loving the switch to a much more streamlined and less clunky game. I'm in the Edmonton area in Canada, always looking to meet new folks and am enjoying the idea of sharing my enthusiasm on this forum!
