  1. 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.
  2. I have wanted to mount an Ironjawz Megaboss onto the Magewrath Throne for a while, sitting in that brooding, slightly slumped position you see Conan sitting in (or any of the Jarls in Skyrim...). Thing is, I am: a) paranoid about cutting him up and getting it wrong b) concerned that the angles will all be off c) worried that the megaboss is the wrong model So, in light of all of that, are there any decent tutorials or help that can be offered? I have scoured you tube and not seen anything that makes sense or fits what I am trying to do. Eventually I want to use it as the centerpiece for an armies on parade type entry of a cave of treasure and the armies about to march out to war. Or something like that. Any help, hints or advice would be appreciated.
  3. Hello everyone, I've been lurking here for a short while, watching all painting and modelling threads. Slowly trying to stay motivated and keep paiting, I've had lot of trouble finishing units/models, this year however it got a little better. Firstly, here are my first 3 stormcasts out of 5, but after number 3 I ran out of motivation. All 3 separately and family photo. Secondly my 3 Screamers, I experimented a lot on them, mainly with the horns, which I painted for the first time, still not sure how to do them. First is the Alpha screamer, then other 2 and family photo Next I'm onto painting a blood warrior, hopefully I'll have some photos soon. Any comments are greatly appreciated

  5. Hey there folks! So I've had a bit of hobby block recently with My Age of Sigmar order army. I'm building a mixed army using the Hammerhal allegiance, though it is a free city of my own design using the Warhammer community free city builder(https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/09/26/make-your-own-free-city-the-easy-way-sep26gw-homepage-post-4/) . But I just can't seem to think of how to put things together, especially since order is made of so many factions broken up and after seeing images of Chris Peach's Hallowguild and Duncan Rhodes' Solakian Guard (https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/10/04/converting-your-own-free-city-oct-4gw-homepage-post-3/), I would very much like to make my army look more 'Age of Sigmar' than Warhammer fantasy. I'm not sure how to achieve this though with the newer kits looking so much better and in some cases slightly larger scale than the old ones. I would like to ask how you guys have converted or painted up your armies in age of sigmar, please post images if you can! It would be awesome to see everyone's work Also apologies for my bad writing skills, it really isn't my forte!
  6. Hey all, I'm in the process of producing some mdf bases - and something rather interesting struck me while working with my caliper and doing some laser work : what is the true base size of our beloved games? A 40mm base is actually something like 39,25 mm wide, so should I aim to exactly duplicate that measurement for playability or simply ignore that and go for a "true" 40mm diameter?
  7. Hey gang, I'm building my Maggotkin army and am considering investing in 40x marauders. Unfortunately the models aren't the freshest of the bunch. I'm thinking about kitbashing a few units together (all within the Nurgle theme). Most likely using marauders, zombie & beastmen. - it seems fluffy to have decrepit mortals in various stages of decay (Plague Garden by Josh Reynolds is my source of inspiration). My question is; will other players, especially tournament players be cool if the models aren't their generic build? I don't want to dish out the dosh only to be told that I'm not allowed to use "proxies." Thank you! Imperi-um.
  8. So in order to avoid me spamming the malign portents tale of ?? With all my project photos I have instead decided to make a topic to share my painstaking tribal themed daughters of khaine conversions with you all! These are trying to be designed with both being a fun army project and also a first forray into AoS28 with some of them, trying to capture character and a bit of a dark edge in the girls (painting is gonna make all the difference I think) Anyway without further ado here are the girls so far!!
  9. Hi all. I guess that this may well boil down to 'depends on who you play', but to what extent are people OK with proxying weapons or models? The reason I ask, is because I've gone back and forth with my own army lists. Up to 1750 ish points is fine, I can remain Order Serpentis, Anvilgard etc. However, I'm then struggling to make 2k without buying another dragon and hydra and so on. I just want to learn to play, go from 1k to 2k eventually, but use what I own - keep costs low. That means, if I bought a box of Corsairs, I'd have 30. That means I've got a list of 3x10, if I can proxy, Darkshards. All for the low price of £15 or whatever they are and I have standard battleline for a regular Order list. Corsairs already have crossbows, but the handbow variant = proxy #1. They have no shields, but I'd proxy the cloak as a shield instead. Is this pushing my luck? Alternative, and this would depend on bits cost, would be to buy proper crossbows and probably rob shields from my other models. I'd prefer to model them as Corsairs as much as poss, because I guess I then also have 30 Corsairs should the wind change direction and my list change again! Would you play someone who had done so? I know my mate who I'm learning with would be absolutely fine, and I too would be - especially if there's a fluffy reason for it. In interests of chatting - what have you proxied with regularity, and why?
  10. 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.
  11. So first up we have my chaos lord, the Black Khan. Converted from a varanguard! Don't get too excited with my love of mongolian naming, not sure if the warband will end up having any mongolian aesthetic to them (though would be great if I could manage to find some ways! Perhaps some nice hats!) Next we have the darkoath warqueen, she and her marauder march alongside the khan as part of his Warband, interpreting the portents of the gods and cutting down any who stand before their thunderous march! No conversion on this girl as I really like the base model. Then we have the marauders! These boys have a slightly gladiator theme to them because I saw some conversions done before and then I saw the blood reavers and I couldn't resist making some characterful marauders to bring numbers to the horde!! Happy with how these guys are turning out so far. I might try adding robe bits to my warrior and knight conversions when I do them. After all what golden horde is complete without horsies?? Might try freehanding the total war mongolian banner symbol onto them when I paint them. Have been wanting some kinda mongolian themed chaos boys and girls for aaaages Probably going to use knight bodies for the warriors to allow easier posing and converting, will play around and see. Regardless I'm looking forward to having a fun little band!
  12. Welcome to the Innaugural monthly Kitbash/Conversion Challenge If you're looking for the participation/wip thread its over here I have stolen this idea wholesale from the people over at bolter and chainsword, It has had some success there and I hope that it shall over here. This months theme is chaos. Using any plastic GW miniature create a chaos champion/ general on foot (that is any hero model from the chaos grand alliance that is on foot) The Rules (stolen wholesale from bolterandchainsword) 1-The finished model is not to be painted the conversion should be bare plastic/metal/resin/greenstuff stealing a few small pieces from painted models is okay though 2 It must be identifiable as the unit it represents , preferably with all the weapons and artefacts that would be on its warscroll. Of course if a few things are missing or changed rule of cool applies 3 *redacted by order of the knights excelsior* 4 Green stuff can be used from individual components and gap filling all the way up to a full scultp 5 Each entrant can post multiple entries without limit 6 You must declare participation a minimum of 24 hours before posting your completed model over in the completion thread (a bit of head start is allowed but i don't want models you've been working on for years painstakingly sculpting each individual component posted in the completion thread competing with stuff people have cobbled together this month) 7 1 calendar month build time so anything built between today (22/02/2018) and one month from now (22/03/2018) 8 Have fun How to enter In the participation thread post the following "I (insert your user name here), undertake this months challenge to build at least one chaos hero unit" In this thread feel free to post WIP pictures and trade ideas but once you have decided to declare your model as complete post it in the completion thread with the following statement "I (insert user name here) declare this as one of my entrants in the chaos hero challenge" And a series of 5 photos 1 Front view 2 Right view 3 Rear View 4 Left View 5 Dramatic angle 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. Bonus points for my choice will come from using using basic kits rather than hero units as a base

  14. Does anyone have any good looking objective markers or ideas for some? I've gotten sick of using blank bases
  15. The idea for this project arose shortly after the Daughters of Khaine teaser video was published. There had already been some discussion around the Greek influences evident in the Malign Portents Shadow Queen video and the new teaser reinforced those thoughts. I tried to think of different ways I would paint the new models, but my mind was suddenly consumed by the image of a Greek temple. My initial thought was to do a faithful, 28mm scale representation of a historical Greek temple. I quickly did the math, however and came to the conclusion that such a building would consume nearly 1/4 of a 6'X4' battlefield, so that was clearly out of the question as I wanted a functional piece of terrain. I got to doodling (I am by no means an artist, so please be gentle) and sketched this basic design: After thinking through the basic dimensions, the next step was to find the columns. After doing some research I headed to the local crafts store and bought these: They are designed to support tiers on a wedding cake, but they are durable plastic, fairly inexpensive and perfect scale. That's all for now! This weekend I'll be hitting the hardware store for some high density foam insulation for parts of the structure, and a piece of MDF for the base. Then on to the art supply store for some foam board for the roof. Morathi is an unforgiving Queen and she'll accept no excuses if I have not completed her temple by the time she returns to the mortal realms.
  16. There is no doubt that we have chosen a hobby that is more expensive than most drugs, but should this stop us playing the game? I say NAY! Don't have the money to buy that hero you have your eye on? Want to create a hero that looks unique? Have a fairly large bits box/ have a friend that does? Well this is the thread for you! In this forum thread i'll be posting cheap (relatively this is warhammer after all) ways that I've discovered to create hero's that will either result in you owning more models than you would if you just bought the hero but for the same money, or having said hero but spending less (and hopefully ending up with more models) Also the reason I've made this a forum thread rather than a blog is because i want other people to post their ideas so i can steal them.
  17. So inspired was i that i finished our converted wight king from yesterday and painted him Not half bad right
  18. 3 little chaos warriors sitting in a box A nice cheap way to get involved with the hobby, also not as open to conversions as other boxes but we still have options Swapping heads is always quite easy and by using a plume from another unit you can add eldritch fire and make a Wightking with tomb blade Looks pretty good imo I used one of the other ones to make an inquisitor I have one more to go and I'm not sure what I'll turn him into but I'll think if something
  19. After a failed attempt to seriously get into AoS a while ago which was totally overrun by the release of 40k 8th edition, I'm back into the AoS train! And this time I've actually bought an army as a proof I'm here to stay : I'm going to do an army either usable as Hosts of Slaanesh or as Daughters of Khaine, thanks to the similarities between the models and a liberal use of greenstuff and magnets! The fluff idea behind them is a bit twisted, they'll basically be the remains of a dark elf Cult of Slaanesh from the old world that supposedly turned to Khaine when Malekith rose, but still the cult remained beneath the surface and, when the End of Times came and Morathi revealed her true allegiance again, they returned to the Dark Prince in search of power. However, in the Mortal Realms, with Slaanesh gone, and the cult of Khaine divided, they turned to a new master, Malal, the Renegade god, who promised them the power they had lost. Because of this they're the Divided Host, followers of three powers but not entirely of none, which fits perfectly the Invaders trait of the Hosts of Slaanesh. I've already posted my lists in both the Let's Chat threads of the Daughters of Khaine and Hosts of Slaanesh, but also wanted to have a thread to post the AoS version of the models (you can check my thread at the Bolter and Chainsword for 40k-related things, daemons are usable in both systems after all), and that's why I'm posting here. I've already finished a Cauldron of Blood/ Chariot of Slaanesh. The chariot version can either be used as a Herald on Exalted Seeker Chariot: Or as a non-Exalted Chariot by removing the seekers and extra armour on the sides, which are magnetised: And then there's the Cauldron of Blood version, which exchanges the lash for a chalice and adds... well, a cauldron of blood, as you could expect: It's all done based on the Cauldron of Blood box, which is a truly amazing kit and I couldn't recommend it more. I've basically turned the staircase outwards, the rack that should hold the frontal wheels upwards with two steeds of slaanesh chained to them and the armour plates that normally are beneath the stairs I've put on the sides with another two steeds, this ones with daemonettes riding them. The steeds are all done with a press mold of the classic Juan Diaz sculpts and retconned a bit with greenstuff to differentiate them and fix the many errors that a press mold leaves. As for the witches/ daemonettes and the hag/ herald, I've carved off the nose and the "tiara" they have so that their faces are like the old daemonettes, converted the boots into clawed feet and changed a knife to be held sideways, mimicking the shape that a daemonette claw would have. Also the Herald has a magnetised arm that can either be used with a Flensing Whip or a Witchbrew, and maybe I'll make a Deathsword option later on if I need to. What I'm debating right now is about how to paint them, though I more or less have a scheme thought: I still need to try a more human-like skin tone, though I like the one I did here a lot, so will probably end up with it anyways. My main doubt right now is with the hair, should I paint it white, black, black with white points? Any opinion would be appreciated! Other things I'm contemplating are the colour of the eyes, I'm tore between glowing green and pure black; and will try different tattoo patterns later on to see how they look. Also take into consideration that the one on the left is mostly finished, but the right one isn't. Anyways, hope you like it and comments and constructive criticism are always welcome, hope to update with more models soon!
  20. Hey everyone, recently i'm working on a 2000 points list of skaven skryre, so since it's about a lot of gunny, crazy models, i thought it would've been good to get some feedback about the project! Tonight i finished building up and painting an old Warplightning Cannon i had already finished; but since i'm not too fond of the weird triangular "structure" they based the whole model around, i just turned some bits around, so that it would look more like this.. It still needs the whole crew, and it has to be based. Anyways, i'd love to hear what you think of it, and since i'll have to re-base a lot of models, i'll probably be uploading quite some pics through these days, but the real wip and paint fun should be a bit ahead, like two or three weeks from now. Hope you like this first conversion anyways! I add that i've just completely made up the name, like right now, and i don't have any idea about the background, so, i'll be trying to write something down asap
  21. Hey folks, So I've recently been struck by an interesting idea for some slaanesh conversions. I've been thinking about how I might be able to make some cool mermaid/siren/nautical themed slaaneshi models. So I'm considering either using greenstuff or waiting for the DoK gorgon models and making some mermaids to function either as hellstriders or as fiends of slaanesh (alternatively spear gorgons could be used for helstriders due to spears & can use daemonette models & sculpt fish tails for the fiends.) However I'd also like to try and come up with other ideas for demonette and slaanesh models in general to keep the fun nautical theme. Can easily add fish tails and possibly gills onto my seeker mounts but no idea whether there's anything I can do for regular demonettes? (Besides possibly adding the fish bits onto their existing tails like with seekers) I'm also open to using some 3rd party mini's like reaper for cool characters or monsters e.g. demon princes. Or parts for building some. The main thing is wanting to go for rule of cool so I'm totally open to conversions for units that aren't considered too good as I'd love to have characterful models regardless
  22. The chaos cultists have shown up in more blanchitsu articles than almost any other model (lord of plagues being the most common one, the amount of times that guy has shown up is almost comical). So let us see what AOS heroes can be made from within the exceptionally cheap box. Well the most obvious hero I could think of was the necromancer, with a few skulls, a wildwood ranger head and some other bits, one can make a passable necromancer. We still have 4 models to go in the box but I'm going to increase my bits box slightly before I commit to any more conversions. Next time: more chaos cultists
  23. So I finished the bootleg knight questor. Next time, we have the chaos cultists box.
  24. you see plague marines? i see a multitude of options... buy multitude i mean 3 with 3 easy to build plague marines and some bits and too much time with a damn pocket knife and pair of clippers one can create a Lord of blights A lord of Plagues And a putrid blightking Or just 3 putrid blightkings, with more skill and some green stuff these options could be even better. Cost of the official models Lord of Blights $40 aud Lord of Plagues $22 aud Putrid blightkins $18 per model (box of 5 for $40) our cost $25 plus bits
  25. The storm of sigmar box is a good value little box and pretty decent gateway drug into age of sigmar, unfortunately all the models within are of the "easy to build" variety and i thought had limited options for conversion, That was until i started tearing them to Pieces and cutting all their limbs and heads off. So what parts do i have out of the box 2 retributors 3 Liberators 3 Blood Warriors 5 Blood Reavers What can we make out of these? Firstly the stormcast models are all sort of based around the same set of Chassis either a liberator or retributor body and from that base we can build quite a few of the stormcast heroes Firstly, the most easy is the knight questor We can see that the base is pretty much the liberator prime So after some cutting and filing and with a spare power sword and a pretty unnecessary head swap As you can see i did some stuff to the other liberators but they may soon have their bodies scavenger in order to make something else Next up we have the retributors and they are pretty versatile Forming the base for the Lord Relictor and the knight vexillor Among others but seeing as you only get 2 retributors in the box As for the bloodbound we've got some fun stuff you can make lords of chaos or khorne skullreapers Wight kings And Sigmar War priests/ excelsior warpriests So for out of a $55 australian, box I have wrung approximately $232 aud of heroes which all look adequately fancy and I've still got a few units to mess around with As to where this blog is going now, I've got my eyes on the easy to build Plague Marines box and some chaos warrior parts we'll see where it leads. Know of any kits that are perfect for turning into other stuff? Know of any kits full of bits I can use? Know of any cheap kits that just kinda maybe look like more expensive ones if you squint? Then tell me in the comments and I'll muck around and see what I can do.
