Ok, so I maaaaay have forgotten to post my regular updates as However, I managed to get a game in last week in the local GW against a Freeguild Aelves alliance - really interesting force that I'm looking forward to see how it grows. The game was a proper back and forth affair, and I just managed to seal the win, thanks to my Crypt Ghast courtier unhorsing his general in an honorable joust. Or at least, that's what the Courtier saw from his point of view! I snapped a quick photo of the army post game. Really pleased with how the force is shaping up as a whole now. Continuing on with the theme of the courts and their deluded visions of grandeur, I converted up my Courtier to represent a knight leading the lowly men at arms to battle. Ser Retch Gribbleskin, Champion of the Crimson Vale: I quite like the idea that the courtier's madness has progressed to such a degree that he visualises everything from the trophy on his back's perspective, unaware that he's essentially acting as his own mount. I toyed with the idea of giving the skeleton a mask or draping a tattered cloth over the ghoul, similar to how the Bretonnian horses were garbed for war. However, in the end I think leaving it relatively blank and letting you fill in the blanks yourself adds something to the model overall. I'd also been toying around with how I could add something to the standard ghouls to make them a little more unsettling. I toyed with the idea of giving them all masks, but I quite like the idea of the masks being a conceit for the heroes of the force. So instead, I grabbed a few Goblin Town goblins i had lying around, did a few quick weapon swaps, added some greenstuff and the result is shown below! I quite like the idea that Neferata can't bear the sight of these foul creatures faces, and will only bear their presence if they hide their faces with elaborate courtly masks. Of course, the lowly peasants can't afford such highborn trinkets, so they are reduced to hiding their faces with mirrored masks - the better to reflect their queens beauty. Mirror, Mirror, on the Ghoul... The banner was an opportunity to practice an idea I've had rattling around for some time. It's a bit overwrought for a unit of blood thirsty cannibals, but I can always say its a magical banner reflecting an element of their delusions into the real world! The next Blog post should hopefully drop next week. I'm aiming to grab the Deathrattle start collecting box for Neferata and to convert up a unit of blood knights - again i'll be playing with the deluded nature of the flesh eaters so hopefully the result wont be what you expect! All going well I'll also have an update on my Golden Demon plans for this year - I think I've finally settled on my Age of Sigmar entries for the single miniature and the unit - watch this space! I'll leave you with a few close ups of the Crypt Hauter courtier and the necromancer for my force. The necromancer forms the core of my AOS28 force, along with the troupe of mirrored ghouls. I plan on adding a black coach in the near future to his band of performers - he needs some way of transporting his flayed skin big top after all!
I still need to name this Horde, but it still need to decide the direction its going. Until then the list only consists of the Khorne half of the starter set and the Slughter Priest from White Dwarf. I have painted 2 of the bloodreavers, not completely finished but enough for the moment. There's still a little bit of clean up and highlighting still to do. but here are the first photos .
Well this was originally the premise of my blog and after an intial surge of sign-ups it's died off to only a handful of dedicated people. So I'm going to be using my blog as my own personal hobby progress and also focusing on the podcast there. So I thought I'd try and run the Tales of Sigmar - Tale of Gamers here on the forums. It seems like there is an active community and would be good to keep each other motivated to get through an army, I know how tough it is to actually commit to one thing and make it work! I'm going to use it as a platform to start a smaller army that's not my Sylvaneth and progress through that in manageable chunks. So What Is The Tales of Sigmar - Tales of Gamers? Over the next few months gamers will be building, converting, painting and playing a new Age of Sigmar army and it will be all recorded here. The rules are simple: £50 GBP / $85 USD/ €65/ $140 AUD (damn Australian prices) a month to add towards your army. The prices don't need to be Games Workshop prices and can be 3rd party stores, purchases form eBay, Facebook Groups, etc. As long as you keep track of your monthly spend. Any money not spent in one month can be carried over to the next month, this will help with gamers wanting to purchase something a bit more substantial or you need to shift funds between months. Participants must post at least once a month to talk about their army, purchases and show the progress they're making with their army. There will be a prize of a Battletome of your choice at the end of the feature for the best army. This will be done as a vote on the TGA. If you want to take part, all you have to do is show your interest here by commenting. Start Date - Monday 11th July 2016 End Date - TBD - I'm thinking 11th January 2017 as it'll give people 6 months to get a new army built and painted. Thanks and hope to hear from you all soon if your interested! Chalmers
