  4. Spent an hour or two washing the leather tonight. Then thought I'd see if this army will fit on the display board left over from my last Stormcast Army. Thankfully they do just fit. I'll just need to order a new plague with Sigmar's Stormcrows on it to replace the old one. Signed up for a local GW event in 2 weeks, mostly to give some practice before The Howling in 4 weeks time. Should still be plenty of time for further detailing including metals and shoulder icons.
  5. Since I've gotten all the models to the same 3 colour base standard I've started on the detailing, beginning with the leather, and the beaks. Adds a splash of colour. I wouldn't normally paint an army in this whole batch kind of way, but I'm enjoying it for a change. Also not worrying too much about shading, blending or highlighting and just slapping down some drybrushing and splodgy blocking in is oddly freeing. Tempted to say its the most fun I've had painting an AOS army in a couple of years.
  6. Another 24 chaos drybrushed and based. That only leaves 15 Castigators to spray drybrush and base then that's the whole main army to that basic standard. After that the whole 64 models will get dirty metal trim, nightmare inducing yellowed beaks, and leather and scrollwork etc coloured in too. 5 weeks till the event I'm aiming for so should be very doable. Might even have time for practice games, even if only against myself.
  7. Judicators progress, got my big drybrush out along with a pot of skavenblight dinge.
  8. Rest of my castigators finally arrived. As did a selection of new basing tufts which I'll show off once I get to basing.
  9. Just some sandy bases on some Judicators/Castigators. Still waiting on another dozen castigators to complete 'the list'.
  10. That creature caster boy is a big fella! Really like the red drogors. Well done.
  11. Another couple of hours tonight working at the Soul Mills building battle line.
  12. Bare plastic progress. Tonight was leg night for 30 boyos, then took 6 to completion.
  13. I've decided to put my money where my mouth is and am building a shooting focused Stormcast army. The hope is it'll shake up the local meta (a lot of dominant Slaanesh), be a bit of a different army style for me (last three armies were evocators spam, Thunderscorn and quad Verminlords) and hopefully be good fun too. As this is my third Stormcast army I wanted to do something a little different as I've done vanilla Stormcast the first time around and the second time around I mixed and matched a bit with vampire/hooded head swaps. So this time I'm going with a crow/raven/bird theme. I'd call it AOS28 but think it falls short of deserving that label, although sticking bird skulls on anything does make it about 20% more John blanchey. I ordered a job lot of raven helmeted heads from the fantastic Zinge industries, and will be using these on all my Stormcast. The heads are a bit space marine-esque at the moment but I'm confident that'll change once I apply paint with brush. I'll also lean heavily on the bird skulls from the citadel basing kit, and apply my limited green stuff skills. Anyway here's some pictures of the start of the project. Two Lords Veritant with attendant Gryph Hounds, and a bakers dozen of Castigators, the poor ****** children of the Sacrosanct chamber, but a unit I want to try out. My target is to have 2k painted and pretty for The Howling in October, so less than 8 weeks all in. Always find a plog helps, so here we go.
  14. I would be incredibly surprised if Bonesplitterz got squatted. Just don't see it happening. Think they're much likelier to see a new battle tome than get squatted. Until then though they're not the most competitive and could possibly take a further hit next month if the new handbook and subsequent faq hits things like command point stacking. But by god are they fun to play!
  15. You are reading it correctly. He doesn't have to be in the battalion and it affects any entire destruction battalion.
  16. Sadly Gorrdrakk doesn't fit in any battalions other than an old realm gate wars narrative one. He's most commonly seen leading Gorefists and other battalions of that ilk, but as an additional choice not within those battalions.
  17. Astral templars for the +1 to hit monsters. But that's a whole change of storm host.
  18. Wall of text battle summaries. Game 1 was against Slaanesh Daemons. Keeper, 6 Fiends, a 30 and two 10’s of Daemonettes, 5 seekers, Epitome and Enrapturess, he also had the mesmerising mirror. The scenario was starstrike. We set up fairly normally with me setting a unit of 6 drogors off the board and I gave him first turn. He advanced up the board and pushed out his mirror in front of my group of shaggoths in the middle. I went and threw a wildfire Taurus into his line of fiends and charged into him. I used the darkwalkers command ability to teleport two shaggoths away from the mirror. Some fun interaction between the bull, mirror, herdstone and the slaanesh allegiance abilities really all messing with our charges and combats meant things didn’t quite go as either of us planned. I killed the 20 daemonettes and the fiends, then got the double turn to kill the enraptures, the epitome and almost kill the Keeper. Alas, leaving the keeper on two wounds after a Shaggoth died charging away from the mirror. This allowed him, going into his turn 3, to chain summon a herald, then an 2 enrapturesses, then 30 daemonettes onto my objective defended only by ten summoned hounds. That was game. But what a fantastic game it was, close and bloody and hilarious. Game 2 was against DOK, Morathi, 2 20’s of spear-snakes, 2 5’s of heartrenders, 2 hags and a Medusa. This was places of arcane power and we both set up on our lines ready to have at each other, aside from 6 Drogors that sat in ambush. I took first turn and ran full tilt at him. However after failing all bar one of my charges I lost 6 Drogors to the blender that is the Melusai. His turn came and the blender started spinning faster, as each unit did about 30 wounds a phase to my poor army. Even the one shaggoth at the back on the leftmost objective wasn’t long for this world as he was murdered by the ten Heartrenders. A short and bloody game that showed me the horrific blending power of the snake ladies. Again, opponent was a fantastic gent and probably the friendliest chap I met all weekend. Game 3 was against Nagash, Arkhan, Necromancer, 2 40’s of Skeletons and 2 5s of dogs. He also had the spellportal and the gravetide. Nagash and Arkhan were rocking all the debuff spells. Scenario was Total Commitment so I duly lined up my drogors on the starting line. His whole army bar 5 dogs sat on his left objective. I went first and took his other objective and proceeded to hold three objectives for the next 4 turns. Over the course of the 4 turns we played I killed 5 dogs, while his Curse of years killed a whole 6 drogors, and his artefact killed my general who was hiding off the board on a wound. One of the shaggoths got a hand of dust to the face through the portal. Good solid win but gave up something close to 1100 Vps. Another lovely gent, in only his 3rd or 4th game of AOS. Game 4 was shifting objectives against Bonesplitterz. He had a Rogue Idol, three wizards, 4 big stabbas, 30 arrerz, 30 morboyz and 10 maniaks. We both lined up on the starting lines, I chose to go first and smashed into his lines. Only the rogue idol and 4 flying big stabbas ever made it out of his deployment zone, and they were mopped up by my shaggoths and drogors in short order. Bonesplitterz without a Rukk are in a pretty bad place at the moment. Hopefully a new book sorts this out soon. The rogue idol looks great but went down without much of a fight to a few drogors and a shaggoth. Another fun opponent, his army was very pretty too. Game 5 was against a gavespawn desolating beastherd. Beastlord, 3 shamen, 10 ungor, 30 raiders, 30 gor, 30 bestigor, 6 minotaurs and a ghorgon. He also had the Taurus and the shackles. Scenario was focal points. I was a bit wary of his punch after running into the Melusai blender in game 2, so I kept my three 6s of drogors off until turn 2 using darkwalkers shenanigans. He won the roll off for turn 1 as we were both 1 drops and he gave me 1st turn. I spent the first two turns messing about and we only really started swinging in turns 3 and 4. I’d left it too late to catch his score and couldn’t quite get through his numbers in time. I could technically have caught him in turn 5 but we were out of time and it would have taken a supreme feat of warhammering. First AOS tourney game I’ve played that’s ever gone to time, but we both had a lot to do and think about. Another fun chap to play, we’d even had a bit of pre-event banter on Instagram, so was obviously kismet to meet in battle.
  19. BOBO over and I didn't get many pics. Won 2 lost 3 so not great but a fantastic experience and learned a lot. Pic 1 is my deployment in total commitment vs a Nagash army. Pic 2 is me smashing up a Bonesplitterz army in shifting objectives.
  20. Quickest possible 10 Ungor for summoning. Not the best summoning pool but it'll have to do as we set off for BOBO in 10 hours.
  21. I'll no doubt get army shots next time I get them set up for a game, or failing that at their first event in a week or so, at BOBO. Very quick rush job to get a cockatrice to minimum standard whilst my toddler has his nap today. They're only for summoning so not too fussed. I'd still like to finish the 10 warhounds and 20 or 30 ungor in the next week. Otherwise I'll only be able to summon once I lose some dragon Ogors.
