Age of Sigmar: Moar Khorne Heroes!

Blood for the Blood God and all that!


Two more of the multitude of Khornate heroes are now completed:

Skullgrinder


Exalted Deathbringer




These two wont see as much table time as the other heroes as in the Skullgrinder's case, his buffs are harder to apply as he has to kill someone personally to provide bonuses to your force.

The Exalted is kind of a super solo in that he wants to be closeish to your general so he gains bonus attacks, but then in the mix killing people. He doesnt really provide much to the force outside of being a beatstick tho... but, put the mark of the destroyer on him and he can go windmilling through units for days haha.

Age of Sigmar: Khorne Heroes

Two more Khorne Heroes completed today, i've added an Aspiring Deathbringer and a Bloodsecrator to my growing force:






The Aspiring Deathbringer (Top Photo) is a great buffing character with an awesome command ability of +1 attack to Khorne Mortal units within 3 inches of him... previously he would have to be your general to use it but now he can stay safe and that ability be activated through one Blood Tithe point hehe.

The Bloodsecrator is a key buff hero from the sigmar starter box, that big banner creates an aura of 18 inches around him that grants an extra attack to Khorne units within range, making him a staple of most lists!

Age of Sigmar: Khorgorath

Next up for me is a Khorgorath from the starter box:





These received a major boost in the new book with those claws now doing two damage rather than one! They also went up in points from 80 to 100, but having twice the melee output as before its quite acceptable haha.

I have another one on route from ebay, and possibly gonna pick up a couple more from a mate so will need to try out some variant schemes to separate the units of them.

Age of Sigmar: Bloodstoker

Completed Mr Whippy this afternoon:





Bloodstoker's are great support characters, they whip a friendly unit within 12 inches and it gets to reroll 1s to wound and add 3 to any run or charge rolls! That reroll to wound isnt melee dependant either so you can sit him behind a unit of Skull Cannons and reroll those important wound fails haha.

Age of Sigmar: Blood Warriors II

Here's the second half of the Blood Warriors unit completed:





For this half i decided to paint the bronze before the red to see if it worked out any easier and quicker... It was as i could be messier and more liberal with the bronze rather than have to pick it out.


I plan on adding either a 2nd start collecting Bloodbound or that Slaughterstorm box to my force to enable me to field a unit of 6 Skullcrushers so i will at some point have another 10 man unit of the Blood Warriors to do in this style.

Knight Models: Killer Frost

A quick paint up of Killer Frost as i needed the 50 levels of Injustice League ready for wednesday as im demoing the game to a couple of people:





Not the best by a long shot but good enough for now!


Back to the Khorne now....

Age of Sigmar: Blood Warriors

Finished the first half of a unit of Blood Warriors last night, these are more time consuming to do than the characters were haha:





The next five are WIP but i need to get one more DC model done for a demo game on wednesday before i complete them doh!

Age of Sigmar: Blades of Khorne

Well after that big post on the Kharadron Overlords you would be expecting me to start up them... but this book appeared too hehe.

I kept up with all the spoilers, digested the battle report and sadly came to the conclusion that whilst the Kharadron models are amazing, i dont think they will suit my play style as its a lot of dancing about and pure shooty with not enough smashing stuff in melee. I will still get the book and cards and may change my mind down the line but having signed up for a 2000pt tourney in July i need to concentrate on getting one force together and that is going to be Blades of Khorne.


First up is one of the best models in the whole AoS range, the old man of metal himself:


Exalted Deathbringer with Impaling Spear



Next is what passes for spirituality in a horde of bloodthirsty cannibals:


Slaughter Priest




I'm purposely building and painting these in small stages so it doesn't become too daunting a task to complete. I managed to pick up a start collecting Khorne Bloodbound (Where the Slaughter Priest comes from), and also a whole slew of the characters from a mate looking to trim down his collection so i have a good start.

Wasteman: Brutant and Chimera

A couple of bigger guys for Wasteman, a Brutant from the Gnar range and a Chimera from the MODz line up:





The Chimera is my second one of this kit as i made the one i got last year as a Hydra hehe, so naturally had to get a second one for completeness.

Warmaster: Empire Skirmishers

Another two units completed for this project:






Still plenty more to go from this but its a slower pace as i want to get a few other bits done at the same time.

Wasteman: The Deathcargot Cavalry

Another week of critical brutal fail has seen me only be able to get these three "beauties" done!






The Deathcargot are the elite cavalry arm of the Knights of Gnar and are some of my favourite models in the range, im thinking to add a further three to my force and reverse the green and yellow i have used perhaps.

Wasteman: Starting my Knights of Gnar

Here are the first seven models i've painted from Thunderchild Miniatures Knights of Gnar kickstarter.... i backed this one heavily and i've been waiting for a clearish patch in the schedule so i can get cracking on them.

Battle Wyzard


Relic Bearers (Yes, that is a tv remote and an Argos Catalogue!)


Rokka


Wild Necrolusks



The next batch are primed and ready to go so more on this soon!

Knight Models: Harley Quinn

Finished this today, really tried to get her to look like the Suicide Squad movie Harley!







Just waiting on Killer Frost to arrive and i can use 50 Lvls of Injustice League in my games :-D

April starts with a bang!

After a particularly savage week at work i was able to get back on the painting yesterday and completed all of these:


Sinestro


Empire Flagellants


Mechanicum Thanatar




Yep a proper mixed bag! Sinestro is part of my Injustice League team for the DC Universe game, and i have a Harley Quinn model to finish off today to go with it. The Thanatar is the latest addition to my 30K Mechanicum army, much quicker to paint than the two squads of infantry i still have to do!

The Empire Flagellants are the first part of some reinforcements to the the Warmaster Empire army commission i have painted for my existing client.

Hopefully next week will be a tad easier so i can get so more done in the week!

Age of Sigmar: My next project preview - Kharadron Overlords




I couldn't put this post up when news broke of this awesome upcoming release for Age of Sigmar as i was on holiday, but yes, i will be painting up a force of these as my army for the game. First up are the five shown characters:


Aetheric Navigator


Aether Khemyst


Arkanaut Admiral


Brokk Grungsson - Special Character


Endrinmaster



Next come the units of the army, three were initially named but a forth has subsequently been shown as a dual kit unit:


Arkanaut Company - Battleline


Grunstok Thunderers


Skywardens



Skywardens (Top) & Endrinriggers (Bottom)



Maybe we will see more troops in the battletome, but what is known is that the next three models are what really really make the force... the Airships:


Arkanaut Frigate


Arkanaut Ironclad


Grundstok Gunhauler





These ships are just amazing, i cant wait to paint them! These are why you will have noticed several projects missing from the list on the right hand side... sold as they cant compare to how awesome these models will be hahaha

Knight Models: Lex Luthor and Black Adam

I'm branching out into the super villain side of the DC Universe game with these next two models painted today:






Luthor is solid at Lvl 11 but will be overcosted unless your really facing superman i think, and Black Adam joins Sups/Sentry/Hulk/Thanos in the God level characters at 16 haha. I have Sinestro coming soon which will let me field 40 levels of these guys in some games.

Black Gate Miniatures: Ogre Cannoneers Ready!

Here i have painted up the next unit in Black Gate Miniatures 10mm Ogre range, the Ogre Cannoneers:






Again same as the warriors from last month, these are great to paint up, and if work hadn't been such a killer last week they would have been done a lot sooner! Looking forward to Armoured Warriors hopefully soon!

Knight Models: Green Lantern and Kid Flash

Yep two more recruits for my growing Justice League force ready for my next game on Wednesday:


Green Lantern


Kid Flash




Knight are starting to ramp up the releases for the DC Universe game, these next three are out at the end of March:






If you've not tried this game i heartily recommend it; its not as tactical or precise as say Guildball but perhaps it is more fun...


Thursday, 9 March 2017

Warmaster: The thunderous hooves!

Yep back again with some more Warmaster, this time five! units of High Elf Silverhelm cavalry:





Again the bases remain just browned as my client will be doing them to match his existing force. Next up will be,,, more Warmaster hehe

Saturday, 4 March 2017

Knight Models: Going Green for the JLA!

I painted these two whilst waiting for stages of my current Warmaster project to dry haha:


Green Arrow



Swamp Thing




Swamp Thing was a birthday present from one of my twins, she was very happy to see i had painted him up! These will get there first run out on wednesday against some Avengers at the club.

Guildball: More Morticians for me!

I lied, i decided to get these three Guildball models painted yesterday and today instead of moar warmaster haha, i needed them done for a tourney next week so ho hum:



Alternate Rage


Brainpan & Memory




Rage is the Steamcon exclusive alternate sculpt that can be used as either Rage or Veteran Rage (If i decide to do a Union team again), and Brainpan & Memory are the new S3 release for the Morticians Guild... used them last night and they are a lot of fun, plenty of annoying shenanigans haha
