  1. Blogging hobby projects helps keep me motivated and any feedback/suggestions/criticisms from the community is always useful for improving. This is my first foray into the Age of Sigmar. I've been following the lore since the End Times and really like the 2000AD and epic metal influences. I used to play Warriors of Chaos, but the idea of playing the einherjer under the guidance of Marvel's All-Father Thor was just too tempting. I went with the Hammers of Sigmar paintscheme. It's relatively straightforward and looks rather nice. These folks came from two Hammerstrike Brethren sets. I converted the Knight-Questor into a Lord-Celestant. Sawed off the shield hand, added a pin, and test-fit with poster tac. I then replaced the poster tac with greenstuff. The hammer arm is from the Prosecutor sprue (I plan on giving them spears, because lightning spears, yes). Lord-Celestant Wilhelm Batsonius: A twice-forged champion of Azyr. His first death occurred when he called down seven thunders onto himself to kill a Herald of Slaanesh. Since his reforging, he has found the presence of a helmet to be claustrophobic. I think the fancy sword makes up for the lack of halo. The SCE remind me of Captain Marvel (the "Shazam!" one) in many ways so when I painted his cloak red I knew I wanted to name him after Billy Batson. Funnily enough it turns out William (Billy > Bill > Will > William) comes from Wilhelm, meaning "without helm." I'm using the second set of unit Primes for conversions into more heroes. The Liberator-Prime got chosen for Lord-Relictor duty and the Retributor-Prime for Lord-Castellan duty. Some plasticard and GS work for the relic box. It's hard to see in the picture, but the relic is a wrecked breastplate with "Sigmar" embossed on it, the hammer head, and the skull with halo. I plan on painting the skull as a skull in contrast to the rest which will be metallic. The two-handed hammer was the base for the lantern. The trick here is going to be painting the center area like it is glowing from the inside. The L-R has a ribcage and spine thing going on in the back and the L-Cas's halberd is from the Prosecutor sprue.
  2. Some pictures of stormcast and various order models in the same colorscheme
  3. Looking to buy a Stormcast Liberator Prime head (the one with the topknot blowing to the left as you look at the face) and a Stormcast greatblade from the Liberators or Prosecutors (or any other set I'm not aware of). Anyone got any spares available? Located in USA
  4. Welcome to my painting log, friend! Here you will mostly see Stormcast riding horses, taking dogs for a walk or out-and-about with birds. Those are, of course, the contents of Blightwar and the Stormcast Battleforce. The Palladors in particular are AWESOME. Also, 2000pts for under £200, and only about 30 minis to paint (ignoring the generous amount of dogs) — what’s not to love? So, here I hope to keep a record of my progress painting and perhaps get some advice to help me improve. My plan is to paint in the following order: (1) Hurricane Raptors: simplest minis and big crossbows, so I can practice the armour and the crossbows. (2) Vanguard Hunters: similar to (1), but smaller crossbows and additional cloaks. (3) Palladors: similar to (2), plus horses. (4) Miscellaneous: Aquilor, Neave, a flock of birds, couple of dogs. Not quite sure when I’ll be painting up these. Going forward, I also need to learn how to play these. I’d be really grateful for any link to a battle report with Vanguard or some other resource that illustrates how to play them. Below are some pictures of the Hurricane Raptors. They are not entirely completed, for example the crossbows are presently attached using blu tack as they are not painted completely. Although I am not really focusing on the bases at the moment, please let me know if you have any suggestion for improving them without too much additional effort. ( My apologies for the ‘background’ being out of focus. Not my camera, so I have no idea what I am doing, but still the best camera I have access to. So I hope the pictures are ok. ) Question: I used Vallejo Liquid Gold and found that the resulting surface is so smooth that a wash forms individual droplets rather than a smooth cover. Did I do something wrong? How can I deal with this? Question: The Raptors look too stoic and somewhat out of place when beside the Hunters. I am thinking of putting the Longstrike bows onto a set of Hunter bodies. Does anybody have experience with that? The shoulders could be tricky if I want to also use the cloaks. The (regular) Hunters are primed and maybe, fingers crossed, I can upload more pictures next weekend. Those guys were a lot more difficult to assemble than I had anticipated. The arms, the cloaks and the items carried at their belts are hard to arrange so that it all fits nicely. J
  5. I've started building a small warband based around a knight questor and his retinue of followers,minstrels, squires and scribes. I wanted him to have an old school heraldic knight look, as if he's been away from his storm host for many many years and has taken to the questing life completely. I'm hoping to run a small AOS skirmish campaign in the vein of INQ28 or inquisimunda using either the regiment of renown rules or the hinterlands rules. Let me know what you think and i'll post more as it goes.
  6. Hi all, As a break from a larger Dark Eldar collection (which is itself a break from a Blood Angels legionary army...) I've started a Vanguard chamber. The aim is a smaller force than my prior death log on here (the Ophidian empire) - looking at 1500 worth, along with the odd bit I fancy painting for fun (mistweaver?). Likely a unit of Palladors, a couple of units of hunters, some birds and shooty stuff and done. It's inspired by buying Neave Blacktalon separately, and having had so much fun painting it so far, I looked into the army book, made another purchase... and now that's it. Progress on Neave so far, and my second miniature/general (boxed). Aim is to buy/build a unit at a time - as a reward, to prevent 'half-finished' syndrome and to stop the volume from becoming overwhelming. This approach worked well in keeping disciplined during my undead project. On Neave - I'm trying a variant scheme based on a tip I had from Dan Latham a few years ago. Using reds and browns for shading. Started with chaos black, then a scorched brown layer, then 60/40 gold/brown, then gold, then 50/50 gold/steel for my layers Done a baal red shade, in recesses only but quite heavy, followed by agrax (lesser). Next up a dark black/brown before the higlights start to really get some depth. Probably will accidentally overdo this step and mess the miniature up somewhat! Will them move past the basic layers done on the other part and finish up, likely an hour or so a night til the end of the week. Think mixing 50/50 or so gold and steel really works as a layer. Leads to better coverage and a lighter gold that catches the light better than the 'official' Hammers of Sigmar scheme (as on the below box art). The red recess shades makes it warmer again without losing that brightness. You'd normally expect paler golds to have a greener tint, the red makes it more naturally unnatural in a way - perfect for sigmarite. For basic troops I may cave in and do the basic reikland flesh-shade wash to save time, unsure yet, this hasn't been the most time-consuming miniature to paint and I'm only look at about 40 miniatures in the army, max. .
  7. Hi people, I just painted a homebrew start collecting (our local shop let us choose to buy one or make an equivalent with other units) consisting of a Lord-Castellant, 10 Liberators and 5 Retributors. I'm planning to add, apart from the Lord-Ordinator, 5 more Liberators, 5 Judicators and, allied, a Repeater bolt thrower. In further games I'd like to use my Lord-Celestant on dracoth, and maybe buy a Lord-Celestant on stardrake (because I want to paint it, and it seem a pretty good miniature ingame). How can I make a decent list with all this? My limit is 2000 points and I also have some more Judicators, Retributors, 6 Prosecutors, a Lord-Celestant on foot and a Lord-Relictor. Thank you!
  8. Gaius Publius had served in the Sixth Legion for almost three decades when the end came. He was known to his comrades as the Wolf, and it was rumored that in his infancy he had suckled at the breast of a she-wolf and raised himself out in the bitter hinterlands of Illyria. Certainly, he bore the pelt of a massive grey beast he'd slain with his bare hands during the Ghur campaigns, thus proving himself worthy and winning the honor of carrying the Legion's standard into battle. Hard bit and unflinching, he was the best scout and tracker in the Sixth, and he would boast in all the Legions. Thus, he was out on patrol when the end finally came. Unsurpassed he might have been, but even he could not have eyes everywhere, and those who might have been able to see the Ungors creeping through the forest failed in their sworn duty. The first he learned of the Sixth's plight was when he heard the desperate rallying cries of its horns, and saw the smoke rising over its encampment. Hurrying back, he found the Legion already destroyed, taken completely by surprise and slaughtered in its tents. There was nothing he could do but watch as beasts and cultists picked among the ruins. Worst was when he saw the Legion's precious standard clutched in the unclean hands of a Bray-Shaman, a trophy of victory. When at last the herd moved on to new targets he ventured into the field of ashes that remained- only to stumble over a relic of the Legion, a golden horn stamped with a VI and an image of an eagle in flight. This was a sign, he decided, a directive from the gods. The standard of the Sixth would fly again, and this trumpet would sound in victory before he would abandon his war against the beasts of the forest. For four long years he stalked the horned ones across the forests and fields of Ghur. He became known to them as the Hunting Wolf, the Red Hunger, for he fought with a cruel savagery and the bravery of a man who has nothing left to lose. As he fought he saw the provinces and cities of Illyria falling into ruin before the onrushing tide of Chaos, but this did not dissuade him. His honor was greater than to one people or empire- he had sworn himself before the heavens themselves, and he would die before he would lay down his sword. This faith kept his mind safe from the whispering temptations of the Dark Gods, but his body still suffered as the taint that was overcoming the Realms overtook him. His once-mighty limbs began to wither and tremble, and his eyes grew dimmer as he suffered from plague and malnutrition. If he could not fulfill his oath soon, he would die with honor unsatisfied, and though he did not fear the end he was afraid of that shame. Thus it was that he prepared his last desperate assault against the herd that had massacred the Sixth so long ago, now swollen to immense size. He knew where the Shaman kept his tent and his trophies- all he had to do was live to liberate them. In the dark of the night, he prepared his tools- fire and confusion. The tinder-dry forest was prepared to burn, and he waited until the wind had shifted towards the camp before he struck a flame. Almost faster than thought the new inferno spread, burning brands soaring to land among the bray-herd. As the beasts panicked he blew the old horn of the Sixth, three blasts loud enough to wake the dead. Many among the enemy believed they were under attack, and in their alarm slew one another, even as the forest burned around them- and into this confusion strode the Wolf. Slaying all in his path, he cut his way to the trophy-tent, seizing the standard and planting it defiantly before him. This done, he called out a challenge to the shaman to come and face the wrath of the Sixth Legion, the blood of ancient Herculia. The enemy answered, swollen by the power of his fell magics into a great three-headed chimeric beast, but Gaius Publius only laughed. He had slain a wolf once, to win his honor, and that had been with his bare hands. Now he had a sword, honor redoubled, and no fear of death. He danced with the beast beneath a fiery sky, parrying and weaving and biding his time- and he soon saw his moment. His enemy feared to be slain, and flinched when the fire grew too close- but he had long consigned himself to an honorable death of his own making. He set the wolf-pelt on his back alight, and plunged towards the shaman, a blazing wraith of legend- and it flinched back, afraid to strike, and in that moment its end was upon it. He struck again and again, Illyrian steel drawing tainted blood, until it fell dead at his feet, a mere wretch of a creature once more. And as the flames grew closer he laughed in his victory, and just as he was about to be consumed he sounded the horn of the Sixth again, to let heaven know of Gaius Publius' approach so that they might open their gates for the Wolf of Illyria. ------ The storytellers call Brother Gaius the Hunter, the Wolf-Skinned, the Untiring, the Survivor, the Sixth, the Wolf in the Night, the Flame of Wrath, the Sword of Vengeance, the Herald, the Sworn Companion, the Beast of Illyria, the Last Legionary, the Oathbound, the Shadow.
  9. I'm sure many of you have come up with glorious/fabulous stormhosts with wonderous colours, backstory's and other fun stuffs. Mine are the Wild Knights of Ghur, clad in glorious purple and gold.
  10. So my friend that I am going to play a matched play game with soon uses stormcast eternals (more importantly knight-venator) because he always tries to pick the strongest good guy faction out there. Stormcast Eternals are obviously the single strongest army currently and having a super cheap hero that can attack across the whole map with dead accurate attacks is a huge problem for a nurgle army. What could I possibly play to beat him? Other than Celestant Prime and a few other units, knight-venator is one of the best units in the game and costs next to nothing to play. Any strategy to take out 1-5 of these guys?
  11. I’ve got all the bits I need. Thanks to everyone for helping me out. I’m looking to upgrade the Liberators from the getting started box. I’m first and foremost looking for Grand Hammers or Grand Blades. Beyond those I’m looking for right hand blades. Can anyone help me out?
  12. It's time to grind! Oh, wait let me back up. I'm currently basing my first AoS army (beastclaw in my other thread), and came across some headless stormcast on the cheap. What dynamic poses and great looking armor and details! The masks, while cool, rob them of some character though (I know that's the point, as a visual metaphor for losing their humanity during reforgings) and that's a fine choice, but My Dudes will be different. Gigantic, manly barbarians that worship Old Sigmar, the god of war, the uniter of tribes, the emperor who crushed nagash under the weight of his hammer. In short, they worship this guy: What they lack in religious etiquette they make up for in enthusiasm, and Current Sigmar, in his wisdom (and patience), reforges these mighty and misguided warriors anyway. So who's heads look sweet enough for barbarian lords sce? Fyreslayers! Huge beards, huge muscles, and huge mohawks - these stormcast feature me trying a bunch of conversions for the first time. So, back to the grind - I snuck my plastic army men into work and put them to the band saw and the bench grinder! Cutting a liberator prime and aspiring chaos champion in half, and grinding down collar, neck, and chest areas of 22 stormcast to make more room for the beards. I'm happy with how it turned out. Current progress: 10 Paladin Protectors, particularly happy with the protector-prime. The three currently handless heroes, from left to right: Lord Celestant, Lord Castellant, Knight-Heraldor. The celestant will have a retributor hammer casually laying over his shoulder like a woodsman's axe. I'm thinking of keeping the castellant bald I think it's a good look for him. The knight is an upper-half aspiring chaos champion with impaling spear and lower-half liberator prime with a ton of carving, greenstuff inside his body, and a belt from someone else. Yes, the toot horn will be held over his head like the mighty spear Up next: assemble the 10 liberators and get some stones for bcr bases and snow!
  13. Hey everyone, I've really been looking at trying to mess around with some of the Free Cities allegiances and have come to what feels like a solid competitive list utilizing some of the ideas from the Grand Tournament winning list, but with a heavier focus on saves vs Mortal Wounds since they dominate the meta currently. Let me know your thoughts! Drakesworn Templar (500) - General - Command Trait : Master of Defense - Arc Hammer - Artefact : Phoenix Stone Anointed Of Asuryan On Frostheart Phoenix (240) Anointed Of Asuryan On Frostheart Phoenix (240) Battlemage (100) Archmage (120) Loremaster (100) 5 x Liberators (100) -Warhammer & Shield - 1 x Grandhammers 5 x Liberators (100) -Warhammer & Shield - 1 x Grandhammers 30 x Phoenix Guard (420) 10 x Warriors (80) -Double-handed Duardin Axes & Shields - Runic Icon Total: 2000 / 2000
  14. These are strictly speaking still WIP. I need to finish the should plates and the bases still. However as I have made no progress with this army since January I think I can probably say that it will be a while before I get around to finishing any of these. I don't really like the metallic Stormcast Eternals so when it can to painting mine I went with a sky/weather inspired colour scheme. It is annoying as hell to paint. I seem to like punishing myself. I do like the outcome however. In the end when I saw the Stormcast Eternals book I noticed that the sceme is very close to the Celestial Vindicators. Not quite as primary perhaps and definitely lacking some contrast. I am awaiting more lore on the order but until that comes out I am happy calling them Celestial Vindicators.
  15. So I recently racked up some store credit at frontline and I am looking to expand my stormcasts. I am running into the issue of whether or not to pick up a Stardrake or a Vanguard Brotherhood box (the price is within $20 its not too far off)? On one hand, Super Cool Giant Monster, on the other a whole lot more bodies to expand out my current collection (I have starter+ get started box+blightwar) but im not sure how good a lot of vanguard would do. Im not looking to be super competitive but I am looking for a lot of fun. Baring that I could also buy one of each of the heroes to round everything out (but thats boring) what do you guys think?
  16. I painted a Knight Questor last year for WHQ: Silver Tower. At some point during that process I made the decision to put together a Stormcast force. This first batch represent a few experiments in assembly and painting. I hope that future additions will be a little tighter. I am pretty pleased with these all the same. This many figures will cover me for some Age of Sigmar: Skirmish games that I have planned for a couple of weeks time. Combined with the terrain that I have been putting together, it should be a very Mortal Realms themed affair. Some more to come soon I hope. More info on my blog for any interested.

  21. So the weekend just past was exciting. I travelled to Linköping to play a 1500 point AoS tournament at Defcon with a focus on good games and good experiences (a "soft" scoring tournament). Army composition: 1500 (1-4 Heroes, 2+ Battleline, 0-2 Artillery, 0-2 Behemoths, 300 p allies) My Army: I wanted to be friendly but I didn't take a list that wouldn't work out at all (so I knew it for sure wasn't 100% friendly) and I trimmed down my current 2,000 list to 1,460 and took away the Castellant so that I'd not have a stupid save on the SD and took a relictor instead (mainly for LC shenanigans and fun): LCoSD, Mirroshield, Staunch Defender, Didn't care about mount trait Lord Relictor, Lightning Chariot Lord Relictor, Lightning Chariot 5 Liberators 5 Judicators 20 Vulkite berserkers 2 Fulminators Match scoring: Open War Cards - 3 battle points for achieving the objective (both could unless it was exclusive) and 2 battle points for sudden death (both could claim this - even if the card said 'the match immediately ends and you win'). There was unique deployment conditions, and a twist for rounds 1-3 and a change in twist for the last 2 rounds. The organisers drew the cards for each of the 5 matches for the whole group. Then we had the scoring that decided the tournament winner which you awarded at the end by giving points (3, 2 and 1) to your top 3 opponents judged by their painting standard, sportsmanship, how cheesy their list was and how much fun you had in general during the game. Note - I liked this tournament format . Everyone played to win but it wasn't just about who had the best list and the most experience with the GHB scenarios. It was more who had the experience, know-how and list flexibility. And even if you had those things and won, if you weren't someone who stands out as extra, super nice sportsman 4 other really nice opponents (I mean, EVERYONE was awesome) you weren't going to win the tournament. You'd just know you played well and stretched your ability with the list or faction you took (which is a reward in itself). I'll include reports for each match. I have done a few of these here and the way I was doing them took so much time I couldn't get them all up. So now I'm going for the format - short description and highlights in text then a splurge of pics. I think that'll let me share more reports on the boards instead of dreading the idea of adding them (they were taking up to an hour before ha!). Match 1 - versus @Lysandestolpe and his sexy, sexy Khorne army (he already has his reports up here and they're also awesome). This was my match of the tournament. It had everything I wanted in the classic grudge match - the starter set taken to the next level - and ended dead even with literally nothing 'achieved' (oh how we tried) but our respective gods were drunk with satisfaction. Mayyybe mostly Khorne considering his aims and desires are sort of cheating in a wargame. The main objective was to kill a 'messenger' (in my case a relictor, in his case a model in one of his big troop blocks). The sudden death was to have no enemy in your deployment zone and to have some in your opponent's deployment zone end of game. Highlights include: My Stardrake just dying after charging (so no save bonus) alllll the reavers and taking 5 wounds and then getting blood boiled and finished by the reavers the next turn; Dwarves who would not die; A fulminator somehow managing to execute many khorgoraths; the epic "pray-off" of the priests (2 relictors and 3 slaughterpriests with a 90% prayer success rate or something); the full block of remaining reavers steaming into the messenger relictor and leaving him on 1 wound only to have me succeed with lightning chariot to escape and heal up with healing storm; experiencing blood bind for the first time; and finally the priest throwdown in the middle at the end where the relictor was blood bound, rolled a 1 for his run, didn't get blood boiled, took 3 slaughterpriest charges and fended them all off with the help of his converted pigeon (surely how it went down). Result - 0 - 0 Pic spam below:
  22. Hi everyone I'm wanting to get into AoS and it has been probably a good 15+ years since I've played any sort of warhammer so I figure I am coming into it as a complete newbie again. After looking over all of the various models I have fallen in love with the Stormcast Eternals and was looking for some advice on whether my planned out starter army is decent. I'm looking to have fun and be somewhat balanced so that I can both win and lose Also a question for stuff like Staunch Defender, does the entire unit need to be within the 6" of the Castellant or just a single model for the bonus to apply? Finally any suggestions/tips/ideas on how I would build this out to a 2000 point list? I'm pretty lost with the battalion stuff and as far as looks go about the only models I really don't like are the Vanguard Hunters. Love pretty much everything else however. This is what I am thinking about starting with: Lord-Castellant (100) - General - Command Trait : Staunch Defender - Artefact : Mirrorshield - Mystic Light : Lantern of the Tempest Lord -Relictor (80) - Prayer : Bless Weapons 10 x Liberators (200) -Warhammers - 2 x Grandhammers 10 x Liberators (200) -Warhammers - 2 x Grandhammers 5 x Judicators (160) -Skybolt Bows 5 x Judicators (160) -Skybolt Bows 3 x Prosecutors with Stormcall Javelins (100) - 1 x Stormsurge Tridents
