    Endless Spells of the Harrowmark

    Thanks! I am currently building the next two spells and I hope to start painting the tree soon. I'll post an update as soon as I have one!

    Endless Spells of the Harrowmark

    Most of the Harrowmark is covered by virtually-impenetrable forest: Seemingly endless leagues of dark, tangled, gnarled and unnatural woods. It is a corrupted land: the dead trees are warped by death-magic, skull-formed rock formations tower over the forest canopy like islands in an arboresque sea. The symbols and motifs of death are everywhere. Deep in the abyssal woodland there are even darker places. Some ancient trees seem to form a locus of evil energy that seeps up, out of the hundreds of graves below, into the heartwood of the tree. Twisted and corrupted by Death magic these Trees of Woe attract all manner of dark creatures, who venerate and worship them as altars to their dark gods. ~ 🕱 ~ Not an Endless Spell, but for the same Skirmish campaign. I've started work on a Tree of Woe to add to my scenery collection for The Harrowmark. Making a "Death Tree" was something I have thought about doing since the Feculent Gnalmaw kit was announced but, strangely, is was the news of the forthcoming Battletome Beast of Chaos (and a suggestion by Viktor) that got me to actually start work on it. ~ 🕱 ~ There is a long history of "Death Trees" in Warhammer. Beasts of Chaos and the various undead factions often have them portrayed in their artwork: The John Blanche painting above was used as the box-art for the plastic Skeleton Horde box in the late 1980s. But he is still drawing similar trees! The illustration below is from his recent "Voodoo Forest" project: I've tried to place the branches of my tree in a way to echo the windswept curves John has used. There is still a lot to do but I am happy with the results so far!

    Endless Spells of the Harrowmark

    The Aethervoid Pendulum Sweeping suddenly into existence like a grim reaper’s blade, the Aethervoid Pendulum cuts through armour, flesh, and even the fabric of the realms themselves with equal ease. With a dread invocation, the fabric of reality is torn by the swinging blade of one of the legendary Aethervoid Pendulums, it slices into the realm as if from nowhere, eviscerating everything in its path. A single pass of the pendulum’s blade is enough to decimate enemy ranks, sending out gory showers of severed limbs and decapitated heads as it swings. ~ ⦽ ~ I'm really pleased with how the blade seems to be solidifying from the aether at the cutting edge or dissolving into it at the tail. All three so far:

    Endless Spells of the Harrowmark

    Malevolent Maelstrom A swirling vortex of Shyishan magic, a tempest that sucks in sorcerous energies and the souls of the dead before exploding in a cataclysmic nova. I wanted to make it look as though the black void of the Maelstrom was crashing through the forests, and taking earth and branches with it, along with the souls of the dead, ripping them out of the ground as it passed over and through them. The two Harrowmark Endless Spells so far completed together: ~ ⦽ ~ And I have made a start on the next one. I'm really pleased with how the spirits appear to be "riding" it! Aethervoid Pendulum

    Endless Spells of the Harrowmark

    The Burning Head The first of my Harrowmark Endless Spells is completed. I really enjoyed painting it but I've realised I need to take a bit more care in hiding the joins when I make the next ones. I used baking soda and superglue to cover the join with texture, after I had "finished" painting it - which meant I hadn't finished painting after all. I'm happy with the results though and I'm looking forward to the next one! I've been thinking about coming up with a few names for Burning Heads that might plague the malignant forests, names that the locals might give them after a few weeks of being tormented by one. I might make a list and roll to see which name we use at the start of each game...
  6. Back in May we read this snippet in the Endless Spells Rules Preview on the Warhammer Community blog, and it caught our imagination immediately: So later this year we are headed to the wild hinterlands of Realm's Edge. With each of our warbands led by a bounty-hunting wizard, accompanied by their retinues plus a few local guides, we are going to hunt down and bind Endless Spells for coin and renown. It will be a Malign Sorcery AoS Skirmish campaign called Spellbreakers at Realm's Edge. But more on that later... (we have our Tor Megiddo campaign to play first!). In the meantime I have to build and paint my Endless Spells! ~ ⦽ ~ Inspired the Umbral Spell Portals made by theempyrean_ I realised I needed to make my Endless Spells specifically for The Harrowmark. Death-forest themed magicks of black voids and ghostly blue-white fires, with lots of roots and branches and mud - so basically the same colour palette as my scenery. So, here is the beginning of my first predatory spells. The Burning Head Malevolent Maelstrom I've started painting them already and I will post an update as soon as one is done!

    I can't see it as a fail if we hyped ourselves - it's not their fault! 🤣

    The Badfangs - Bonesplitterz of Aqshy.

    Thanks! I was going for "painterly" I will keep updating this thread but the warband has been pushed down the painting queue a little bit by other projects. I'll get back to it as soon as I can

    Adm'rul Kurgan and The Ironfang Pirate Fleet

    I know, it's been a while since I updated this thread! The ironfang Fleet have not been idle though! The Ogresuns tried to salvage the wreck of The Rotmoon's skyship in the Harrowmark forests: The Rotmoons then got entangled in the schemes of Nagash's servants: This Autumn the Cleavermaws and Kaptain Mogrum will go hunting Endless Spells at Realm's Edge.

    Adm'rul Kurgan and The Ironfang Pirate Fleet

    Kaptain Mogrum - Weirdnob Shaman! Da Cleavermaw was a hulking conglomeration of different wrecked and captured ships, cobbled together over many years from their victims and any old junk they could salvage. The prow and stern were completely mismatched and it rode through the air in an ungainly, awkward way. It looked like a dog, steered like a cow and smelled like a slum. Luckily it also packed a punch like a prizefighter: it was equipped with strange mechanical contractions to grapple and board an enemy and vast amounts of heavy artillery. For years Kaptain Mogrum was completely obsessed with closely examining the captured papers, maps, charts, orders, logbooks and letters - he had standing orders for the crew to gather them from captured sky-ships. He hoarded them in his cabin and, along with his clerk, poured over them for hours in the night making details notes and trying to fit them together or to make sense of them as a whole. Some months ago Kaptain Mogrum received a near-fatal head injury in a boarding action - a Kharadron skypike split his skull. He was not expected to recover, so it surprised everyone when he woke up and exploded the cabin wall by vomiting up a green lightning-blast of Waaagh! power. The head wound he had survived had unlocked a connection to Gorkamorka and the Waaagh! energy that was generated by the orruks around him. Mogrum embraced his new role and his new powers when he found he could punch holes in enemy ships just as easily as he could scatter enemy crews! This is the old (Orruk Warboss) version of Mogrum, alongside the new (Ironjawz Weirdnob Shaman) version. The next chapter in his story will start this Autumn when we begin our Malign Sorcery AoS Skirmish campaign: Spellbreakers at Realm's Edge.

    The Rumour Thread

    I have spent far to long doing this! 🤣 I have collected all the Rumour Engine images and any confirmed reveals together on one page on my blog. I will do my best to keep it updated and new images are published and when new releases tick them off the unsolved list. http://warbosskurgan.blogspot.com/p/rumour-engines.html
