  1. Nearly everything that was on a 40x40mm square has moved onto a 50mm round base so far - perhaps this would be a better guideline size for that transition?
  2. @Marc Wilson Could you add Team Rocksteady to the reserves list please. Thanks Regards, John
  3. On Wednesday we had our first Skirmish campaign at work, which was great fun to get several small games in the same evening for a change. Terrain seemed important so i looked around and put together this quick project that I did over three evenings - mainly to allow for drying between each stage. The work each evening was quite small. Stage One Looking around I finished off a bottle of sparkling water and that seemed the perfect base for a kiln/chimney for a small workshop building. With a few pieces of foam card I roughly formed the shell of the building and stuck some thin wood pieces over the joins to hide the connections. I then piled up filler around the base and let it set overnight, I forgot to take photos at this stage. Stage Two I cut up a box into small square to use as roof tiles and bricks on the chimney and stuck them all over the correct places to give some form. I used the box folds to create the gutter looking areas. Greenstuff was used to create the thicker brick stucture at the top and add some sticky out bricks. Stage Three Once dried and after a quick cheeky spray, to create a more realistic finish I rubbed astrogranite debris over the 'bricks' so that it collected in the gaps between the squares to get a mortar look. And sand and glue mix would probably of worked too. Once that was dry - it was pretty fast i thin just splattered on some paint quick and built up some fast layers of drybrushed highlights. Gave that a few minutes to dry then started working washes over the model. the final touch was some flock and tufts... Final touches were a couple of random assets from the bits box. I hope that gives some ideas for quick and easy (and very cheap) terrain

    My Beasts of Chaos army once was comprised of Beast Herds, Shaggoths and Chaos Ogres... but when the 7th Edition army book came out it removed those units from the army and so project warpig was started. I had a bunch of spare boar heads in my bits box at the time as the tuskgor chariots always came with alternate heads. These pigs needed a leader and aside from the shield, i also built my first full greenstuff model for the doompig. Unfortunately i never ran them much so never finished them off fully. With Age of Sigmar, i've ran them a few times and with devastating effect if they get into enemy lines. In honour of some of their most recent successes i've started to scratch build a piggy-mum (will count as a Ghorgon) to fill out the brood. Pig-gors Doompig Ghor-pig Size Comparisons Next hobby tasks for these: So i'm rebasing all of these to rounds, i'm going to do some more conversion work on piggsy (the pig on the square base) to turn him into another standard bearer. I need to finish basing and painting the DoomPig and obviously there is still a lot of modelling to go to finish the mother pig off. Her arms are going to have large bladed weapons bound on, i need to add a cloak to her too, buckles and detailing to the straps, additional armour plates and then i'll see what else needs adding after that.

    Cheers for taking time to make comments The rocks for the bases are made out of FIMO. I roughly cut some pieces the right shape and baked them in the oven for a while. After they were cooked, but still warm i hacked away at them with some modelling tools. The flakes that come off leave them with a rock like finish. They are then pinned together with steel wires and some greenstuff barnacles added along with some resin crystals. The ropes on the boat are picture hanging wires. I feel i need the red as a punch colour - i'm going to keep the blue as the colour for aethermatics, but yup the windows are not working at the moment. I was trying to do them with the gem paints and i haven't really found the result i was hoping for so far. My warherd units are all pig themed - i'll put a blog-post up with an introduction to the family
  6. Slowly but surely the switch from square to round bases continues. One of my favourite models still in the GW range is the Shaggoth, this metal version is probably heavier than my entire Kharadron force will be when complete. The harpy is a daemonette and tyranid gargoyle conversion. As for the Kharadrons, i've been playing with colour and basing options and i've got to a point where i think i'm happy to start painting the rest of the force
  7. Could you put me down for this too please... John Southgate Thanks
