  1. Update: I finished building my bolter crews. I wanted them to look heavily armoured since they do get Stormcast armour saves, and also make a visual connection to both the corsairs and darkling coven troops. Here’s my old base and crew. I’m a mini-snob, so I’ve been wanting to replace the metal crew for quite some time, but just didn’t know what to use for parts:
  2. 1. I’m modifying a Tauralon for my manticore, and plan on using the black dragon rules since my army is all dark elves. 2. If you scroll up this page you’ll see my cold-one driven dark elf Hurricanum. I’m going to have an elf sorceress in place of the Medusa, who’s a temporary placeholder.
  3. Looks great! Really enjoying the cool colours and detailed bases. What city are you running these as?
  4. I’m still grinding away at my dark elves, and just about have my first 500pts completed: 1 Kharybdis 10 Darkshards 2 Celestial Ballistae 1 Sorceress That’s 560 I think. I still need to build and paint the crew for the ballista. Not sure why, but I’m really struggling with motivation for them.
  5. I was going to work on corsairs next, but got distracted by my old bolt throwers. These are the old metal versions. I built them about a decade ago, with the brilliant idea of putting in spaces for the crew to sit on the base. Of course, the rules for DE bolt throwers in AoS were lacklustre at best, so I only used them once or twice. Now, with Cities of Sigmar, I realized I could run them as Sigmarine Celestar Ballistae, and have decent rules with great old school models that keep my CoS army completely dark-elfanized. I needed to rebase them first, and I also wanted to replace the bolt heads to something a little sleeker and more consistent. I have some Wild Rider javelins that fit the bill perfectly, though I had to pick up a second box to get six for each of two throwers, plus spares for the crew to hoist around. I do love this hobby Especially all the plastic, which is so easy to work with. I had to remove the metal spears, and that took a whole night in itself; gave me flashbacks to doing conversions 20 years ago, when everything was metal!
  6. GHLUBLARGALGURGLE!!! 170 pts of tentacled horror ready to haunt my table. C’thulhu would be pleased. The beastmaster chaperone is not glued in place, just pinned, so the angle’s a bit goofy. But I need to move on to something new already. Going to update some corsairs for the army. This was a lot of fun to paint, but I kept repainting areas over and over. I just couldn’t get the dark plates on the back to work, until I realized the secret was to reverse it out, and paint a light colour between the plates. I’ve seen something similar on tortoise skin, where dark plates sit on light skin, giving a really interesting contrast.
  7. Thanks! Here’s my squiggly beastie, still a work in progress. Really having fun with the textures. It’s also been a fantastic trial for contrast paints.
  8. Well, here’s my first completed unit for my Cities of Sigmar armies. It will be all dark elves, but some units will be conversions of non-elf units for fun. Up next; finishing my Kharybdis.
  9. Thanks! Not sure about doing a guide, but I’ll try and get some close ups to help show what’s going on. Honestly, it’s a lot of trial and error, gluing together bits then ripping them apart when they don’t quite work. I had an idea in my head of what I wanted to do with the “balcony” and Drakespawn, but had to scrap other ideas that wouldn’t quite work with the pieces I had. It’s fun and frustrating in equal measure.
  10. What head’s did you use for the shamans? Vampire counts? Love the feral look they give
  11. Ha! Those are brilliant! I love armies with a strong, unique theme to completely different them from anything out there. White fur was an inspired choice, they really stand out well against the red armour, and give them a bit of an otherworldly appearance. Can’t wait to see more!
  12. Thanks! Yeah, I love the dark elves and eldar aesthetic, pointy spiteful malice is the best. I’ve been painting for... (oh god, math is hard)... carry the one... 32 years. Dammit. I’m older than dirt.
  13. Could you leave us old timers just a little bit of granularity in the game? Please?
