Thank you! I really enjoyed painting them. I like crazy colours on destruction armies.
Not much time today, but worked on the bases for my human Blood Bowl team. Gotta finally finish those.
I should be splashing contrast paint on the remainder of my first horde of clanrats, but have since got caught up in painting an arch-warlock instead. Playing around mostly with Gryph-Charger Grey over a near-white silver base layer.
Won't have much time around today for anything, but assembling a next cold one is on my radar. I want to try mass painting for the first time BTW.
Ask and you shall receive.
I still have a lot more to do on the model, but the blue-black colour on the armour plating was what I was trying to go for as a bit of an experiment. Kind of coming up with some silly fluff of my army being from an Eshin clan that did a hostile takeover of a Skryre clan and have since been lurking in Ulgu.
That looks.... eerie.
Can't wait to see it finished!
Loving that rendition of Ikit Claw!
As for what I'm doing today hobbywise, do you remember the joblot of old Night Goblins from various editions I managed to snaffle for a good price last September? If so, I'm working on those now (if not you'll see them quite soon I expect ) - the 8 with spears and 3 with bows from the ancient 4th Edition boxed game are going to be interspersed among my existing units to make them slightly bigger and more survivable, and the old multipart ones who preceded the current plastic kit are being made into extra Squig Herders, a Warboss and a Battle Standard Bearer!
Painting a Nurgle Chaos Lord. Messed up my Nurgle Chaos Warrior a bit, so I'm going back and trying to fix that.
Painting an Arch-Revenant for my wife's army.
Finishing 2nd unit of Fellwater Troggs.
Finishing assembly of my Ironjawz
So far I have
1 Megaboss on Maw Krusha
1 Weirdnob Shaman
9 Gore Gruntas
5 Brutes (love the guys, but don't like them on the field. I just got them to convert stupid Ardboys)
Is it the plastic one that’s a favourite of converters and kitbashers alike, by any chance?
Also, thought you weren’t keen on Nurgle?
The Chaos Lord is the old metal one, slightly converted.
Fluff-wise, definitely not. However, I do like the the Mark of Nurgle in the WoC book from a rules standpoint.
Huzzah, my HPA (Hell Pit Abomination) arrived yesterday! Just gotta come up with a name for him/her/it! A friend suggested "Abby," short for "Abomination." I am a little curious as to why it needs training wheels though!
Finished building these two models in prep for a 3v3 2500pt game.
The army I'm bringing is an Aqshy list built around Eternal and Thunderquake starhosts:
Slann Starmaster with Cleansing Brooch, Arcane Might, and Stellar Tempest
Saurus Sunblood with Magmaforged Blade
40x Saurus Warriors with Spears
Eternity Warden with Ignax's Scales
5x Saurus Guard
5x Saurus Guard
10x Saurus GuardThunderquake Starhost
Stegadon with Skystreak Bow and Alpha Skink
Stegadon with Sunfire Throwers and Alpha Skink
Hunting Pack with 1x RazordonDread Saurian
Malign Sorcery: Malevolent Maelstrom
Not much on the hobby side but I got some more Anyaral: The World of Twilight in the mail from the recent Kickstarter.
I was sitting with my mum and found a website that does payment plan on sheds. Got given the idea of probably getting one for the hobby, have the miniatures on display and having a gaming table to take proper pictures of armies.
But I am thinking currently on it, mostly due to costs. Got the garden space for one.
During lunchtime taking a stroll through the local garden store, admiring all the winter wonderland Christmas-displays. thinking to myself what a wonderful world what can I use of this stuff for a Warhammer diorama!
...and I thought to myself, what a wonderful WAAAAAAAAAGH!!!
Building an Empire Fortress out of polystyrene for 40k. I'd say Apocalypse level (2 main walls, each 47" long).
Basecoated and shaded my last 3 Fellwater Troggoths
Painted a Weirdnob Shaman
Painting 3 Warchanters, 80% done. 3 different main colours (Black, Gal Vorbak red, Stegadon Scale Green).
Managed to set on light skin tone for my Ironwaz, similar to the box arts (Deathworld forest-> Biel Tan Green -> Elysian green -> Ogryn Camo -> Krieg Kakhi -> Flayed One Flesh
Still freaking out about how to paint my regular dudes' metal plates. Skull White right shoulder pad is guaranteed for every bloke in the party, for uniformity
