  2. Hey folks! So I just had this pop into my head the other day: what sort of ideas and themes would you like to see for new armies in age of sigmar? The game already has some crazy themes and concepts (Idoneth Deepkin, shadespire lore, Nighthaunt, the realms themselves!) Thought it would be fun for everyone to share ideas they would like to see used ? Recently I've been thinking of a reimagined free peoples with a more generic look to them and less puffy shirts to really make it easier for hobbyists to do their own thing with them, but also things like mixed duardin and human artillery crews, perhaps more mad sciencey stuff like a a small unit of handgunners equipped with fire rockets (a la total war shogun 2) and weirder steam tank variants, maybe even clockwork golems like the Thallax in 30/40k? A lightly armoured but skilled unit of duellists that go into battle with swords and pistols or a mixed unit of human and aelf archers? The possibilities are endless for them and I would absolutely love it if they looked a little like the freeguild fighting the darkoath in this piece of artwork ?
  3. In my first hobby post of the blog I'd like to show the origins of my longest running project, my pirate themed Anvilgard Allegiance list. I was given an unopened box of Black Ark Corsairs almost 2 years ago, and from there I was interested in the idea. The aesthetic was something I really liked, but I was disheartened by the rules available (Allies were not yet a thing and the Free City rules were but a glint in GW's eye) so I shelved them, taking them out only occasionaly as a palette cleanser. Over time I acquired more models for this army, always second hand and pre painted, old and forgotten models put aside during the rollout of Age of Sigmar. I hoarded these away an told myself I would get to it, eventually. I dedicated my time largely to painting my Skaven Pestilens force, and took them to every tournament. At first I got utterly steamrolled, by good players with better armies. But over time I learned how to make the force work, I started to catch people off guard, play objectively and even win games. And I thought to myself "if I can win with this goofy army, surely I can make a mixed order pirate list work". So I promptly filled a bucket of detol and dumped half a hundred models straight into it. Some were caked thick with paint by inexperienced painters, some were simply a scheme i didnt like or want to paint over the top of. Some made it through the stripping process in tact, others went to the surgery table to be modified with spare bits from other dark elf kits to become servicable again. Here's a look at a few being drained of their detol before some light scrubbing. Not pretty, but they would be eventually. Check back next time to see what they would go on to be, more pictures below.
  4. Striding above the lesser rats as they charge screaming into battle is a monster the skaven fear more than any other. Verminlords are the truest incarnation of the Horned Rat, be they ascended champions rewarded for excellence, shards of the Horned Rat given form and function, or the hideous Lord Skreech Verminking, an abomination formed from the essence of the entire original Council of Thirteen. These entities lead the skaven, from the front and from the shadows, and of their number none are fouler than the Verminlord Corruptor. A Nurgle Daemon Unlike Any Other The Verminlord Corruptor is the centrepiece model of a Clan Pestilens army. As the only unit in the book with a command ability, if they're in the list they'll be the general. Before Pestilens recoeved alleigance abilities this guy didn't see much use, he was an awkward out of place model that simply cost too much. Now, with a point reduction and command traits and artifacts that bring him into line with the rest of the army this chittering monstrosity makes for a formidable leader indeed. Disease Strides the Battlefield The Corruptor is best played thematically. He stalks behind a line of plague monks, casting his command ability on them while casting mystic shield to preserve nearby Plague Furnaces and unleashes his unique Plague spell on anything close, or anything close to his nearby expendable and targetable swarm. He only fights in close combat when victory is assured, and given his game changing command ability is willing to expend every last rat to preserve his own well-being. Equipped with the Blistervious, the Living Cyst and bearing the Master of Rot and Ruin trait this potent support general will stay alive on the back field, casting prayers and spells to support his minions and dealing with any enterprising assassins foolish enough to come close. Points to Remember 12 wounds and a 4+ save is not that durable. If the Corruptor tries to trade blows with anything bigger than a support hero, he will lose. The idea of this mighty creature cutting down hated Allariele the Everqueen is pleasant, until her beetle takes him out in literally one round of combat. Prayers used by a Corruptor who has Master of Rot and Ruin or the Liber Bubonicus cannot trigger Great Plagues. Can't fathom why, but rules as written he doesn't. Don't try it. We might be scum skaven players, but we aren't cheats. His unique spell can be chained through your own troops to reach the enemy. Not always smart, but always funny when it goes off and causes the enemy even more casualties. Parting Shots (With a Prehensile Tail) I've begun the hard task of repainting my corruptor, shown here in his original, if somewhat rough glory, and halfway through his new paint job with lovely crystalline horns.

    Paint Recommendation

    Hey all. I am looking for suggestions for a paint color for a project. I am painting some FEC Flayers and am going for a rosy, pick flesh tone for the wings. I have not been happy with any of the GW colors and have not been able to mix up something with the GW paints. Does anyone have any suggestions, either of color mixes or tones from other lines? Thanks in advance for any input.

    Scatter Terrain?

    I have plenty of ruins and buildings to play on a nice table but I feel I need some smaller stuff to throw around, stuff like barrels and boxes... What do you guys use and where do you buy it from?

    Morathi High Oracle complete

    She was done mainly by airbrushing. Her skin is Vallejo Model Air Skin Tone over Vallejo Game Air Barbarian flesh, washed with Reikland Fleshshade, then a thinned burst of VMA Skin tone followed by a thinned (and targtted) wash of Druchii violet. Her golden pieces are are Vallejo Metalics Copper and Gold. Based with Copper, highlighted with a 50:50 mix, then a final edge highlight (with airbrush) of Gold. These paints are an absolute dream. Stop using GW metalics and get these. Her boots and gloves are a mix of Vallejo model wash grey, nuln oil, abaddon black and incubi darkness. Her hair is the same mix but with more green (so that when she becomes the Shadow Queen the hair and snakes resemble one another). The fabric is Screamer Pink on the outside and Khorne Red on the inside. Both washed with Nuln Oil, Druchii Violet and highlighted with the original colour and edhge highlighted with Wazzdaka red and Slannesh Grey respectively. The Slaanesh grey was the tough bit. It needed significant clean-up and a targetted wash. I learned my lesson here - use a bigger brush! Her hair and cloth were the only bits not airbrush based and honestly I regret not doing that. It was becuase messed up the order in which I painted by starting with the metalics and then the skin - which is how I would hand brush (inside-out and all that) - but I should Have started with hair and cloth, then the metalics, then the skin.
  8. today I spent some time repainting my banners for my army. I have about 8 flag bearers so it's a long process. Here's a before and after.
  9. Hey everyone, I'm just getting back into the hobby after a long hiatus, got into warmachine last year and thinking about starting some small warbands in 2018. I know there are already generators out there for making warscolIs in various sizes, but nothing that fit the standard playing card sleeves I got used to using with my warmachine units. I decided to experiment and came up with one, using the lovable (moonclan) grots. Check it out, would appreciate feedback. I'm plan to make a set for my starting warband - and see how well I can fit the text for some of the more complex units Cheers

    Rats in need of Makeover

    decided to touch up my rats after a year of neglect. The rat on the left is from when I had a spurt of inspiration months ago, and the other one is from when I first started playing. These lads are in need of a little tender loving care to get them up to the standard the New Zealand scene often displays.
  11. Recently (since Blood and Glory) I have really struggled to get my hobby mojo back again. I think I burnt myself out getting all the terrain ready. Also painting and modelling the terrain is very different to painting models, which is my real love. However trying to get back into painting has been a bit of a struggle recently. I've reworked the hobby room now, but its been a bit chaotic and trying to find time has been hard. Coupled with the lack of motivation means I've found it hard to get anything done. So, what is the solution....? Firstly I went about fully reorganising the room. I then got out a bunch of half completed projects to tackle. Some of these are for my Wanderers Army, then there are some units to go into the Tzeentch force, and some more Nurgle models that are being done in the hope that a new Nurgle battle tome will be forthcoming. For the Wanderers I have been planning on doing some Warhawk Riders for a while. I finally got round to finishing these off. I have had the riders done for ages, but I needed to put the hawks together. I assembled the whole model and then taped off the plastic rod so I could spray up the rest of the models. Once I got the pale underbelly done and the top I just went a bit crazy with lines to add the texture. The painting is mostly done using very thin paint and washes. You can work really quickly as long as the brush has a good point. I didn't worry about the texture on the model as a guide. I just used my own feel for where the feathery effect should go. My Nurgle entry is the humble Plaguebearer. I have done 30 now which is a good number of battle line models, but I think I probably need to do another 30! This doesn't really fill me with excitement The models themselves aren't too painful to do though. I tend to do a two tone base coat and then wash the models and dry brush them up. I can then easily vary the greens on the model to get a lot of variation in the units. After this the models get finished relatively quickly as its just a case of picking out the horns and some pustules, and then doing the gore with Blood for the Blood God. These still need basing though. For the Tzeentch I need to increase my Horror numbers. I have the three lords of change which are all different colours, so I thought it might be nice to paint up matching horrors in the same colours. I have done the ten green ones so next up is the 10 red ones. I have base coated them brown and Mephiston red and then quickly layered on some Evil Sunz Scarlett. The beak, claws and tongues will all be picked out in white, and the red will have a final highlight of Tau Ochre to hopefully set it off and not make it too orange. The Blue Horrors have just been base coated blue and then had the highlights brought up to a bright Palyd Wych Flesh. I like these models a lot, although they are a lot smaller than I expected. All I have left to do after this are thirty Brimstone Horrors and the army will be ready for Sheffield Slaughter and Heat 1 at Warhammer World. If you have had your own Hobby Wobble let me know how you got over it in the comments!

    'Ere We Go

    So here we are in the Age of Sigmar. I must admit, to my shame, I was one of the first to denounce this change. I railed against the lack of points, I decried the aesthetic of space marines creeping into my fantasy world and I openly mocked the 4 pages of rules. I played zero games before I said these things. Then I read the scrolls. Yes, the silly rules involving talking to vampires, raising a goblet to the lady and gazing deeply into your opponents eyes may have been upsetting, but the layers of intricacy that the scrolls added intrigued me. I played two rounds of a game with High Elves (Aelfs) and an Orc & Goblin (Orruk) army and immediately loved it. A Giant (Gargant) ate my Pheonix Guard, (still Pheonix Guard) some Lion Chariots went rampant and Tyrion ran about shooting things with his fiery sword. It was chaotic and silly and ridiculously fun, but the store closed an hour earlier than we thought and we had to pack it in. Even though it was only two turns, I spent the next month trying to convince my regular group to join me in this brave new endeavor, but alas they had been seduced away by another game that still had points and square bases. Now I have to travel to the next county to get a game in despite living five minutes from a great gaming store. No bitterness here, though, I'm glad that my old gaming group from Lancaster were willing to embrace the game because they are some of the best people in the local gaming scene. Besides, the long drive gives me ample time to listen to AOS podcasts and the excellent audio dramas that Black Library have produced. Hobbywise, the shift has really ignited my hobby ADD. Earlier today, I had Orcs, Goblins, Ogres, Elves, Death, Bloodbound and Stormcast spread across my hobby desk, two tables and atop some large tupperware boxes. Paint bottles were strewn about, broken shards of square bases everywhere I looked and the baleful remains of neglected brushes seemed to stare accusingly every time I tried to paint. So today, I reached a breaking point. I decided to come up with a plan, clean up my space and started this here blog to keep myself moving. So. June 18th, my club is hosting a narrative event/tourney. The points will escalate from a 20 point SCGT to 60 over 5 games. The rough draft for round one is that starting heroes are capped at 5 points, units must be 6 or less and no duplicate units. Kinda restrictive for Stormcast, but that's the intent. I figure for 60 points my goal is to paint the list I've been running at that level. It includes a Lord Celestant on Dracoth as the general, a Lord Castellant, A knight Venator, 10 Liberators, 5 Judicators, 6 Prosecutors, 5 Paladin Protectors and a Gryph-Hound. So until the rules are finalized, those are the only models on my painting table. 4 weeks to get those painted to completion. Once that is done, I'm focusing on my terrain collection as the club has asked to borrow it for the event. Luckily, a number of models have paint on them, so I have a bit of a headstart. Here's a look at the paint scheme, going for the Knight's Excelsior. The last chapter of the Godbeasts book made me fall in love with this stormhost. "The Hallowed Knights wept to see what had become of the realm they had come to save, while the Knights Excelsior looked upon the destruction they had wrought and saw that it was good." I have two packs of the upgrade sprue waiting for me at my local hobby store. Quick note on terrain, I was listening to Vince Venturella's Warhammer Weekly Youtube show from April 13th with the terrain tutor. Good episode if you want some inspiration for terrain making. The terrain tutor was talking about building terrain on used discs, so when I found a scratched one in the random detritus of my desk I thought I'd try my hand. I have the Witchfate Tor model and it comes with a bunch of spare wall sections. I grabbed those and some spare bits and made myself two more interesting pieces of ruins to use in my games. Here are some WIP shots. One is on a disc, the other is built on a spare piece of plasticard. Going to need more layers of sand to cover up the bases that some of the pieces are attached to, but I think these will make some cool scratch built terrain pieces when I'm finished. That's it for this week, check back Monday for an update of my progress over the weekend.

  15. Hi, as the title and tags might suggest, I'm looking to upgrade my current painting tools. I'm currently using the standard gw paints and brushes. Has anyone got any recommendations for different brushes etc? As an aside I'm also looking into purchasing an airbrush. Has anyone got a recommendation of a decent mid range airbrush? Many thanks!

  17. I'm a big fan of square bases on certain units, mostly the archers that I keep tightly grouped and generally don't need to shuffle around much in melee. I was wondering though, with the GHB2 around the corner, are square bases likely going to be a problem? Should I just hold off on basing them for now?
  18. Why is it I always finding myself wanting to build models when I am painting them? Why is it that when I am painting such cool models I want to be building more? Seems this cycle never ends for me. Part of the reason is never being able to give as much time to the hobby as I would like to. Life certainly gets in the way and of course I have to work to earn money to buy new toy soldiers. Now I have never been much of a 40K guy in the last 10-15 years, but I was a huge Necromunda guy in it's day. Now GW is coming out with Shadow War Armageddon this week and I am totally stoked about this game! I went out and bought a box of Genestealer Cults Neophyte Hybrids as now I have a great excuse to run Genestealers one of my favorite factions to 40K back in the day. Naturally I want to continue my work on my Age of Sigmar projects which is the distraction. Any every take a hobby vacation before? Where you take a vacation and lock yourself in your man cave and just jam on building cool models and painting and listening to awesome music or watching your favorite movies or netflix shows? This is my dream...
  19. I just wanted to make a post to say that while I know Citadel primer is very expensive compared to others, it is so totally worth it. The way it comes out, the volume of the 'cloud' it produces, the coverage, the consistency ... all of it. So worth it. That is all.
  20. Hello all, I am introducing a new painting log today where the work shared is everyones who wishes to take part. The main idea behind this is that you commit each month to painting a set amount of models and at the end of the month you post your progress and a little blurb on how you did. This is a great little way to get everyone painting more, sharing pictures and building our already fantastic community. I will post a thread each month with the date in the title and people can commit until the 15th of the month. after that the last three days of the month will be for posting pictures, progress shots and discussion. This is a great way to track each others progress and get tips and advice from the community so dont be shy and get involved! Mohojoe's January commitment: I commit to paint Ogre tyrant 3x leadbelchers Leadblaster cannon I am starting off light in January as I have a very busy month with uni hand ins and work. This is the basis of my tournament army for march so I need to make some progress on what I have before I can buy any more models. I also predict that the Leadblaster cannon is going to be tricky to paint and may take me longer than anticipated. Anyway thats mine, I look forward to seeing what the rest of you want to get done!

  22. Hello! People call me Shoe. I played Warhammer fantasy using 40k rules as a teenager in the 90's. After completely dumping GW (and all of my 40k models) in '98, my kid and I discovered AOS the month it launched and I picked up the starter box and started playing. Since then, I had benefit from all of the salty WHFB players selling off their armies for a pittance and as of this month, (October 2016) I have restored & painted nearly all of them. 320 models so far this year! I have to say, it's been fantastic to get back into the hobby after years and years of brilliant sculpts, and to see GW's return to greatness. I'm really getting into honing my skill as a painter. I have so far left to go. My painted armies: Stormcast Warherd Slaves to Darkness Skaven High Elves (Island of Blood) Sylvaneth Warhost Ogor Gutbusters (Sold) Unpainted Armies Left to Do: Wanderers (Aelf) New Sylvaneth Rotbringers Death You can see more of my work here: https://www.instagram.com/televided/
  23. While sending out feelers on sponsorships/partnerships for Realms at War: Legends 2016, a thunderbolt of an idea struck me. The international AoS community is full of talented people, churning out unofficial supplements, rulesets, campaigns, etc, all in the name of Narrative play. Yet the majority of events being held worldwide are still focused on Matched play. I'd like to see this changed, with more events focusing on the story/hobby aspects such as Holy Wars, Realm Hoppers, and campaigns like the Season of War. So my immediate idea is this, to form an international affiliation with the following ethos: Inspire players to embrace the Narrative Host and promote Narrative play events Produce a collective fountain of knowledge & resources To be a supportive network of Narrative Heroes! Current Members (or at least those who've agreed to listen to me): HobbyHammer The Holy Wars Mengel Miniatures The Mortal Realms Podcast Realms at War Given this is all in an infancy stage, any thoughts, ideas, potential names for the group, functional aspects such as where do we host it, etc, are all free to be discussed here! Only with your help can we make this a thing. Thanks for your time and support!

    Doomsayer Tourney Prep Week Two

    So not a lot of time to type this week. I've been slowly adding elements to rank and file, but then halfway through today I found myself unable to put down the Lord Castellant. He and his Gryph-hound are up to tabletop standard. I also bought myself a Winsor and Newton Series 7 #1 brush. God, what a difference. I started using that and a Royal Langnickel at the same time and the Langnickel is just about shot. The winsor looks new. To be fair, I am treating it with utmost care. Alright, I'll go more in depth next week, but here are some shiny new pictures of the 5 models that are ready to rock out of the 33 I'm looking to get finished by June 18th. I have my work cut out for me, but I'm pleased with all the elements of the color scheme. I think I've even gotten an Idea of how I'll finish the prosecutor wings, so look for those next week.
