After many hours of experimenting, failing, cursing and praying to the chaos gods I finally made 11 whole bases! I know right?! amazing so here they are! I am so please with how these came out, personally I think bases are far more important to the story of a miniature than colour scheme. I really liked the idea for my brayheard that they lived in a vast dark forest, seemingly never ending, but the happened to stumble upon a long forgotten and decaying ruined temple to the pantheon of chaos gods. In the centre of a ruins stands a realm gate which is where the true story of my army will begin. I wanted broken runes and the idols of chaos carved into the stone floor that has been broken and weathered and almost receded into the forest. I used the dark runes textured rolling pin on super sculpey to create the effect I was looking for. This project was unbelievably both fun and frustrating in equal measure, wrestling with the super sulpey and my oven so the thin sheets came out just right so they were brittle and could be snapped for the ruin effect but not burnt by the oven took a hell of a lot of failed attempts, but it is so much more satisfying when it goes right after such a struggle. Painting was simple and then adding details like the static grass and leaves really brought the bases to life and the end result was better than I expected. Thankfully I also took delivery of my beastlord model and I really love this sculpt, the name of mine is Gor'bix and he will command my army! I decided a shield looks much cooler in my humble opinion and a plus to survivability is always good for generals so after a very simple conversion here he is ready to be primed! Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully next week I will actually start painting a unit!
I have recently begun working on a brayheard force and was wondering which weapon set-up you guys thought was better for the beastlord. The dual weapons because the high success rate of attacks? The two hander for rend? or the shield so he has more sticking power? thanks
Unfortunately I am still waiting on the delivery of my textured rolling pins so I can get on with basing, so as I didn't want to entirely waste my day off I decided to put together 10 of my ungor raiders and I have to say this kit was pleasantly surprising. Now these model, especially by AoS standards, are tiny. But I was glad to find that they were full of character. The hunched bodies and disgruntled faces are really lovely and honestly I wasn't expecting it at all. When I bought my battalion box the ungors seemed like a chore but now they have won me over. Loads of options and accessories and really varied posing, something which I sorely miss from the new kits where you get very little choice of how a model is posed. Ranged attacks are sorely lacking in most all the chaos forces in AoS so these guys, although seemingly weak, could be wonderful especially due to their insane movement!
So after a few months away from hobbying I have finally got the motivation and time to jump back into my Brayheard project! I have always loved the beastmen but the old Warhammer fantasy battle was always far too daunting for me, now with AoS I decided it was finally time to show my love to the true chaos army. I managed to pick up a battalion box at a random toy store for 20% off after GW discontinued the box and a few other boxes too. Currently I have built 10 gors, 10 bestigors and a bray shaman (ready to be painted). I have also decided to include a contingent of thunderscorn (a box of dragon ogres and a shaggoth). I'm also debating if I should add chaos trolls (river trolls) and chaos ogres ( iron guts) too the force as well. I have 20 ungor raiders, 20 more gors and 10 bestigors still on the sprue and I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of the beast lord. This is a very large undertaking for me but I hope to complete 5-10 models per week. I have decided to make and paint all the bases separately, I ordered two of the textured rolling pins from Green Stuff World on etsy, the runes one and the dark runes one aswell and will use these to make an ancient chaos ruin theme for my bases. Hopefully the rolling pins will arrive shortly so I can spend a day making the ungodly amount of bases I need in one batch and then hopefully prime them and all the models I currently have built. hopefully this blog will keep me on track, nothing else seems too work!
