  1. Hey there! I am starting a new army and since this will be a conversion heavy project I thought I could make a blog to share it. Hope you find it interesting! We could call this army "scourge privateers re-imagined", or Realm Ravagers as I am calling them. An elf-pirate army based on corsairs and 40k dark-elf aesthetics… heroes, infantry, sea monsters, sailboats all still to come! Let me start sharing the first heroes I am working on.
  2. One great thing about gw kits is the little character full animal sidekicks/ scenery bits that come in them. They're great for making servitors or daemon familiars out of and they all look pretty great so i was hoping tga could come together and compile a list of all the little dudes and which kits they can be found in.
  3. Hi all. Working on turning a freebie Sequitor into a Lord-Ordinator! Raided my bits box, ordered some hammers, nail art cogs and gears and picked up some leather cord. The plan is to replace each hand with a hammer hand, head swap for the female Sequitor head (son's choice of the 3), replace a shoulder pad with the lion shoulder pad, and use the cord and cogs to make those final Ordinator esque details. The Stormcast I own are technically my son's, but he's very happy to have me paint the characters for him. Thinking of a celestial painted tabard when assembled. So far:
  4. I have some mortal nurgle units and am working on kitbashing some nurgle chaos warriors out of blood warriors and leftover blightking bits, but I'm having trouble thinking of a good way to "de-demonize" some plaguebearers. I'm not a huge fan of the super weird nurgle bits, nor am I a fan of the demon aesthetic, so I'm wondering if you all have an ideas on what to try and throw together for a "counts as" unit of plaguebearers. I had to buy extra bits to make sure my blightkings werent too gross, but still gross enough. I'm thinking of either getting a bunch of free people's and throwing bits from the plaguebearers on them, but I'm not sure that a mix between a unit of guard and bearers would work out. Any suggestions? Thanks!!
  5. Once again we join for the third ever Kitbash competition. This months theme is "Battleline" So this month contestants are to create either a new battleline/elite unit for their faction of choice. You can post 1 model which would be the basic format for your new unit or you can make a whole unit with new leaders special weapons and whatever else. If you're after the completed projects thread its over here Here are the rules 1. The finished model is not to be painted but photographed as bare metal/plastic/whatever but if you have painted/primed it black and white photo's are okay 2. Its got to be to the 28mm scale of warhammer, no foot high beautifully sculpted monstrosities. 3. Greenstuff can be used anywhere from gap-filling all the way up to a full sculpt. 4. Each entrant can post Multiple entries without limit 5. 1 calendar month build time so anytime between today (1/05/2018) and a month from now (1/06/2018) 6. Have fun How to enter In the participation thread post something along the lines of "I (insert username here) undertake this month's challenge to build at least one new unit for (insert faction here)" In the participation thread feel free to post WIP pictures and swap ideas but once you have finished your mini/unit post in the completed projects thread stating that this is indeed one of your projects and a series of 5 photo's as shown below. (for multiple units stick them in a line in the one photo and then organise them dramatically for you final photo with individual photo's for special weapons/leaders) 1 Front view 2 Right view 3 Rear View 4 Left View 5 Dramatic angle (not necessarily this angle just an angle that you feel best shows off your mini) Once the challenge closes I will run a poll to decide and audience favourite as the grand champ and I'll declare a personal favourite as well.
  6. This kitbash challenge thing seems to be working well but I'd like to throw open the choice for this months to the community. I've had a few ideas but I'd like the community to weigh in before i start this months competition. As such here are my ideas. A new battleline/troop unit for your chosen force A hero but it must use an easy to build unit as the base A priest A small skirmish warband (~3 models ) Feel free to tell me if you've got any better ideas I'll start the competition next weekend with the consensus favourite unit.
  7. So I've had a -lot- of fun today, building up myself an engineer and a volley gun for my freeguild!! Any fans of the monster hunter franchise will notice that gunther's long rifle is actually a gunlance! Complete with stabby bayonet and a scope for the range finding optics. I'm quite happy with this guy, he looks truly mad and ecstatic with his big guns! And next we have the volley gun! Known as Die Grosse Kanone (the big cannon in german) this is gunther's personal volley gun he built himself and as such is ramshackle and full of love (and gunpowder) The big gun will also get an eccentric crew built for it soon too so look forward to that! I might add some more components onto the gun too. Like a big crank on the back!

  9. After the roaring success that was last months thread (12 entries 8 of which weren't my own which was awesome ) We are on again for the second ever monthly kitbash/competition thread If you're looking for the participation thread its over here This Month's theme is Wizards! Using whatever materials you deem useful you are to create a single model that has the Wizard Keyword on its warscroll, is not a named character, and is on foot. Here are the rules 1. The finished model is not to be painted but photographed as bare metal/plastic/whatever but if you have painted/primed it black and white photo's are okay 2. Its got to be playable, that is identifiable as the unit it would be played as, not necessarily warscroll perfect as the rule of cool applies and to the 28mm scale of age of sigmar. no foot high beautifully sculptured masterpieces please . 3. Greenstuff can be used anywhere from gap-filling all the way up to a full sculpt. 4. Each entrant can post Multiple entries without limit 5. 1 calendar month build time so anytime between today (23/03/2018) and a month from now (23/04/2018) 6.

  11. In advance of a club campaign, I have finally started building some Stormcast! The Redwolf Covenant are a chamber of disparate units, brought together under the Redwolf to continue their unceasing war against chaos. They are therefore slightly less homogenous than standard Stormcast. If I'm honest, the fluff lags behind the modelling! Anyway, here are my first two units of Liberators, and my first two heroes - a Lord Relictor, and a...nother hero. I haven't decided what he'll count as yet. If anyone is interested in buying any of the Khornate parts of Thunder and Blood off me, send me a PM EDIT: Sold
  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. I've started tinkering with AoS28 around the edges of my Inquisitor projects, just to get away from the lasers for a while. This thread is a little project log. First up, a group of seven marsh-dwelling Plague Hunters, stalking Nurgle's abominations with fire and steel to keep their people safe. Little do they realise how ineffective a mask is against the favours of Grandfather Nurgle... This next group is a classic set of D&D adventurers, this time from a desert Realm. They too are masked to avoid the contagion of Chaos - a Priest of Ghyr, a Realmgate mage, a knight and a ranger. My Shadespire Stormcast, both a conversion pic and a rather blurry end result. Finally for today, a Witch Hunter and some of the vengeance-seekers he has gathered to his cause.
  14. While the veteran first company of the Rereksfjiord proudly bears thier ancient arkanaut armour, the second has embraced the newer uniforms and equipment commonly seen by the greater sky-ports arkanaut companies. While working for the same employer, the arkanauts of the Rereksfjiord company competes fiercly to outdo each other on missions. This is by the orders of thier captains, Toddrich of the first company and his younger brother Borvick of the second, whom are both sons to thier companys owner Geilda Rereksfjiord. The brothers both whishes to impress thier mother so one of them can become the companys next owner. After the kitbashed first arkanaut company the next was mainly built from GWs official kit. The only bit from another kit is the head of captain Borvick which is a spare from the gyrobomber.
  15. Anyone have a picture of a Tzaangor next to a Kairic Acolyte? I'd love to give Kairic Acolytes the waist+thigh armor of the Tzaangors to up-armor them, but keep the rest of the Acolytes. Kairic Acolytes are a bit light on armor, and I want to get an idea if it is possible to do this as part of a Chaos Renegades Blood Bowl conversion.
  16. Hi guys, here's a complete progress of my Errant-Questor, kitbashed from various bits and pieces I am left with, or purchased from bit sites/ebay. Just a bit of a background, AoS is my first foray into this whole wargaming hobby, and I started off with the stormcast eternals because I love the idea of an angelic host made from humans who have a bone to pick with chaos, guided by a (mostly) benevolent god-king. My first few minis are horrific, but I've tried to improve with each iteration, learning how to basecoat properly, wash, dry brush, make my own bases, glazing, wet blending, NMM (wasn't very successful), and edge highlighting. The Errant-Questor is my 40th painted mini since 4 months ago, and represents the cumulation of all the techniques I've learnt since then. Enjoy!
  17. Knowing how the Gnarlroot Glade loves all things magic and prizes artifacts of sorcerous power above all, I was thinking of thinking of incorporating some relics from the end days into their arsenal. The most popular seems to be the Celestial Hurricanum, but I would imagine finding some Wizards from the Collegiate Arcane not exactly willing to follow around a Sylvaneth army. My idea is the Sylvaneth come across a long forgotten, and most likely damaged, Celestial Hurricanum that they wish to press into service. Rounding up four strong Stags shouldn't be too much of a problem for them, and a Kurnoth Hunter might even give the wagon a push. Riding atop the Hurricanum would be a Branchwych and a couple Dryads in attendance. I don't think I'm the only one with this idea as I could swear I had seen a picture floating around the internet like it. I want to give it an ancient feel with rusted and moss covered parts. The many candles providing illumination of the pristine wagon would have long melted away, and would be shunned by the Sylvaneth anyhow. In their place would be lanterns of Faerie fire or Fireflies. For the planetary objects of the original would be instead replaced by Spites of varying shades. Gamewise, all of the abilities of the original Celestial Hurricanum would still apply. Stags attack like war horses, Dryads attack like Acolytes, etc. Do you have any thoughts, opinions, or ideas on kitbashing one? I'll need, of course, a Celestial Hurricanum, Sisters of the Thorn kit, Branchwych, couple Dryads, maybe a Kurnoth Hunter if I can get him into a pushing pose, and several Spites from the Treelord kits. For a base, the largest oval from GW is the 170mm x 105mm. I don't have the Hurricanum yet, so would it fit on that base with all the other models? All advice and inspiration is appreciated!

    Silver Tower Mage Conversion

    Converted up a battlemage from the silver tower set to be in theme for my Stormcast Eternals.

    Tempestor kitbash

    This one was super simple, just an extra lord-celestant from starter set trimmed off the weapon hand carefully and had to trim the crossbow hand a bit to get the angle I wanted.
  20. Finished up converting/kit bashing my lord-castellant from leftover bits. Pretty stoked how it came out.
  21. I've always loved the Forge World Colossal Squig model and it seems to me to be an absolute must for the Moonclan Grot Squig army. After building the model I felt it seemed a little bland and it didn't seem to fit with the hectic rabble that I envisioned Moonclan Grots to be. I like the idea of the crazy grots eating too many mushrooms and trying to out do each other in dangerous shows of bravado. I also find it difficult not to kitbash/convert models to individualise them to my army, so I set about adding on some bits and pieces. The old metal Fanatic models are perfect for adding a bit of humour and momentum to any squig. I also added some grots from many different decades as a bit of a homage to the Moonclan Grot/ Night Goblin range. With the addition of lots of chains & balls and chains I was slowly building a narrative that hinted at the method of controlling and directing the movement of the Colossal Squig. Total weight of the model so far is 368g, a true heavyweight Squig. and with base coat, washes and some highlights on the Squig itself. This is a real challenge to paint albeit very enjoyable. A very old fanatic model becomes the proverbial carrot on a stick. Some work on the base. The idea is that the Squig has just landed on a massive mushroom and has broken it, I had planned to have a grot fishing sitting on the mushroom being catapulted in the air but not sure now. I also wanted the base to be very robust to support the weight of the Squig. The Squig, mushroom and base are all pinned with coat hanger wire. This is currently where the model is at, plenty of work left to do. I will upate this post as progress happens. Thanks for looking.
