  1. It's the age old problem with the anonymity of the internet. And the fact some hobbyists feel they are entitled to their hobby being more important, and so use this entitlement in well intentioned places such as this to educate us in what is wrong and why, GW in this case, is evil and bad! I for one embrace a place like TGA because it is a celebration of what is great about the community and why we all spend inordinate amounts of time and money on fictional toy soldiers! Also, what is the rush? Do people really expect everything to be released, fleshed out, reimagined and yes, perfectly balanced in such a short space of time? All our fan favourites will get their time....in time Think about how a post will be perseved and the audience reading it. What kind of response do you want? Is it constructive? Has common sense been engaged before pressing the button? Ben has imagined something great here. Let's all do it justice by treating it with the respect it deserves.
  2. So after a month I have finished the get started stormcast eternal boxed set. I have had so much fun and satisfaction painting them up and can thoroughly recommend the range. My inspiration comes from listening to the hallowed Knights audio dramas and the tales of Tarsus and his mission to seek audience with Nagash! Its an awesome set and really gets me immersed into the background. This is very much just the beginning of these and I'll be adding plenty more narrative themed units to them as the army grows. So here we are, the beginnings of my Hallowed Knights Alongside the warriors of Sigmar I also made a start on their unlikely ally who will 'help' them on their journey through the realm of shyish... more on this aristocrat coming soon...
  3. After a lengthy hobby break I'm back! The audio dramas have been a huge inspiration for me and I got the stormcast bug! Chatting with local Rotherham GW manager Liam (awesome dude!) he mentioned they had started an AoS event based around building a new force and expanding it over several months. Picking up the stormcast getting started box I've been really loving the models. And they are a joy to paint!after the getting started box is done i'll be adding judicators and some more retributors. i'm going to theme the force on the hallowed Knights 'Bull Hearts' from the audio books. I've got loads of ideas for adding units and writing scenarios for awesome games. more updates coming soon
  4. My first entry here. In April I pledge to paint the stormcast Eternal start collecting box and 5 additional Liberators. Great way to kick off my new army
  5. It's been a while sadly, so busy in non hobby life! My latest efforts have been to get a couple more blood reavers finished, my mighty lord of Khorne completed and purchased Gorechosen for yet more awesome models! Not a great deal I know but some progress! Ive also assembled 10 blood warriors to join the ranks of the bloodbound. So my current plan for the rest of the year is me trying to be realistic. Finish 20 blood reavers, Bloodstoker and 10 blood warriors. Should be possible but we'll see as I got a little distracted by the listening to the hallowed Knights quest to find Nagash audio books. And this happened...Only the faithful then... Be back soon I hope
  6. Hi TGA community My entry to the painting competition this month. Some amazing models and the imagination used has been incredible! Hopefully this will become a thing ;D
  7. Hi, Cheers for the comment The axe was pretty straight forwards. Using thinned paints I started with khorne red, followed by evil sunz scarlet. I added kislev flesh to evil sunz for the first highlight and then pure kislev as the edge highlight. thinned evil sunz was used for the slight glow on the blade. That's it really. I tried to keep it simple
  8. Cheers matey, totally flattered! To be honest I followed the painting tutorial from Warhammer TV for the flesh initially. Using thin coats over a black undercoat. Rakarth flesh in 2 coats followed by flayed one flesh in 2 coats. the aim to get a nice smooth skin. After this I washed it all with reikland flesh shade, but thinned with lahmian medium to keep the colour less vibrant. after this it was a case of layering flayed one flesh where I wanted it and working up to pure white in the highest spots. I then added another layer of shading in the really deep recesses using firstly carroburg crimson and then druchii violet, thinned again, to alter the skin tone. And that's it to be honest. Just took my time and thinned my paints. I've learnt to be very...more patient with my painting...
  9. Time is flying by this month! So with the new White Dwarf enjoying awesome, and deserved, success, I have cracked on and finished my free slaughterpriest for my bloodbound. I have admittedly already painted one up for my warband so this time I thought I would add another character. The aspiring Deathbringer is currently being sold with the old Champion of Khorne model so I thought I would update is presence on the battlefield with something new. May I present my Aspiring Deathbringer of khorne. I am extremely pleased with the finished model and I have received some extremely generous comments an Facebook and twitter. I can't stress enough how important it is to keep painting if you want to improve. I've been trying to do at least 1/2 hour a day to keep a brush in my hand and I hope its paying off! Hes going to get a flash picture for the competition running on TGA and then we'll see how I fare. My next project is the Mighty Lord of Khorne and a blood Stoker and assembling blood warriors, but that's for another blog entry...
