  1. Presenting the Killaboss on a Great Gnashtoof (GW come up with some pretty terrible names at times), he's a leader for the Kruleboyz faction from Warhammer:- Age of Sigmar by Games Workshop, and he's pretty hard to take a decent picture of. Had a lot of fun painting this one, even if it did take me a long time to get him finished. Tried out some of my new basing stuff, I don't think those giant grass tufts will see much use! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  2. The no nonsense but lovable father figure of the Blacktalons. While no longer in his prime as a warrior, he is the man with all the plans and the experience to make them work. Formerly a senior trainer with the Order of Justicar, his own experiences growing up in one of the most dangerous and crime-ridden areas of the great city of Leoplain gave him a knack for taking recruits from similar “troubled” backgrounds and turning them into, mostly, well-rounded knights (Including Neave and Shakana). This has left him with many friends and allies within the Order that are still willing to help him out, despite his current fugitive status. Presenting Hendrick the Silver Wolf, part of the Blacktalons character set for Warhammer:- Age of Sigmar by Games Workshop. Pretty pleased with this one, even if my satin varnish insisted on drying pretty glossy in places, just need to paint the remaining four members. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  3. Thought a project thread might help get the hobby juices flowing (Not that I have a great track record of actually finishing them), and what better project than my new centrepiece mini from GW (Something else I don't have a great track record of finishing...), the Lord of Gluttony! Eventually it'll look like this:- But it starts off like this:- At the end of day one, I've built most of their platform thingy:- Couple of minor gaps to fill, but it went together surprisingly well. And got the first Big, Crawling Dude put together:- Let's see how much further I get tomorrow!
  4. Presenting Yndrasta, a Stormcast hero from Warhammer:- The Age of Sigmar by Games Workshop. Glad to finally get this one finished! Her wings aren't great and I forgot how to paint her armour partway through painting it, but overall I'm happy with how she turned out. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  5. A practitioner of the obscure art of Mirror Magic, by capturing a person's reflection in her mirror she can look into their mind and conjure up what she sees. For years she used this talent to entertain the idle rich and now works for the Hedonist Society, giving its members a safer method for creating new experiences. It is not just a party trick however, in combat Polyxeni can use her mirror to delve deep into the darkest recesses of her opponent and confront them with their greatest fears. Presenting Polyxeni (AKA a Shardspeaker of Slaanesh), a mage from the game Warhammer:- Age of Sigmar by Games Workshop. Been working on this one on and off for a while (I've had to repaint bits of her danged cape so many times), but I'm pretty pleased with the end results, still gotta practice more with my gems and orbs though! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  6. The unrelenting, swarming, terrifying tide that is known as the Skaven... Also known as "skrit skrit of death-death to all, but maybe save a few bakers as they make delicious cookies and cupcakes!" I'm playfully blaming a wolf for this thread, but it's a different one for a change. This time it was @Chaoswolf! This is going to be a looooong project. Arguably it already is, since most of the initial contents of this army were purchased over a decade ago, but I have a tentative goal in mind of "fully finished by 2020" which gives me a year and eight months to work on it in between all my other projects - a goal I hope I can manage. It was originally supposed to be assembled six weeks after I purchased the 25th anniversary army box, and then there'd be a campaign, prizes and whatnot, but being stupidly busy with work kind of prevented that from happening back in the day and I wound up backing out of that event/tournament. Later on, Isle of Blood was added in. Either way, I've always wanted to have a big, GINORMOUS HORDE OF DOOM, and the Skaven definitely portray such in my eyes Always did like their lore, and more importantly, the models, the fluff, and the fact they're murderous, backstabbing buggers! Eshin has always been my favourite, but Skryre is definitely a close second due to their shiny shiny blasty murder-kill anything in their path. Why the focus on Pestilens though? Well, truth be told, any good kill-kill stab-stab from the Skaven is going to be comprised of the various different factions, but the biggest part is that their models are some of the most eye catching to me. That and I already had a bunch of them, so I figured why not! Their siege weapons are also rather lovely, at least the Plague Furnace. I'm still debating about the Plagueclaw, but for now I still plan on having two in there for symmetry and versatility At the moment, I only have about half (or so) the units I'd like to have, but I'll work on acquiring the rest over time. What do I have right now? (Spoilers added to be friendlier to mobile users) (So.... Assuming I counted correctly, we're talking 201 238 minis) And what's being added in? (So.... about another 243 small models, 2 small siege units, and 11 siege weapons/behemoth added in bringing that to a grand total of 444 481 small units, 2 smaller siege units, and 11 large siege weapons. It's 454 491 small models total if you factor in the Mordheim models I probably have kicking around somewhere o_O) Just for my own calculations, I'm writing down in a spoiler what I think will wind up being the entirety of the army... ...I kind of figured that if I'm going to go in, I'm going to go ALL IN. Sure, it's technically an army that's illegal to field due to too many leaders (18/8 if you include the on foot Grey Seer, 17 if you don't), and too many behemoths (7/5) with the new AoS rules, but it will give me that nice variety I crave, and flexibility to play in pretty much any size game. It will also look downright insane on a shelf once it's done I suspect. Technically, it's also a 8,940 point army as currently written, but that's just using info from the Warscroll builder, and not making use of any Battalions, which could theoretically change the composition of this army, and have me add (or possibly subtract) models. Come to think of it, odds are I'll wind up taking a good look through the 9th age's website to get ideas for various other miniatures, because while this is technically an army I might field, I just want a nice, varied horde, and nothing says varied quite like adding in minis from several other companies ...Doubly so when some of their miniatures are a lot nicer looking (like say, the Jezzails, or even rat swarms). For example, Otherworld, Reaper, and Windmaster all have models that can easily fit in ~_^ Now... No good thread is without pictures, so here's a part of the reason why the next several orders from Reaper are going to have a decent amount of bases in them... ^That there is what I've been able to round up so far that isn't still in a sealed box. At least most are assembled, but there's that one annoying thing... They're all on 20mm square bases, and Age of Sigmar tends to prefer them being on round bases (most being 25mm, but some being other sizes)... Not to mention the fact i tend to prefer circular bases anyways. Thankfully, I used superglue for almost all of them, so that will help IMMENSELY. I'll also be doing up bases for each and every one of them, which is probably going to chew through a decent amount of my various supplies, given that the last time I did up some bases (earlier this week) I chewed through half of the 200g of Magic Sculpt I have (although to be fair, there were 2x 60mm and 16x 25mm bases for my Tau, even if it was just the broken concrete stamp it still uses up a good amount of putty). I also greatly prefer the nice lip that Reaper's bases have, because it lets me try and have the added in designs be relatively flush with the "expected" height, unless I otherwise plan on having them be higher (like say, for heroes and/or leaders) ^ So here we have the bases for what was originally going to be my Censer Bearers, but it turns out those are supposed to be on 32mm bases, so instead these will be for my Poison Wind Globadiers, which rather works out because those haven't been based yet ...Happy fox to say the least. ^The top most 40mm base is for my Warlord (which will feature a decent more rubble on top of those cobblestones), while the other two are for two of my Rat Ogres. The 18x 25mm splintered deck bases are for my Night Runners. When I make the other 22x bases, I'll make sure to have more raw material so the details don't get squished when stamping. Most of them turned out alright, but some of them you could tell I didn't have enough and/or really should have had the stamp against something solid instead of my fingertips. Up first will be the poison wind globadiers.... Once I clear up a bit of room on my cutting mat anyways, I kind of have a bunch of gnolls, kitsunes, and minotaurs taking up that space right now ^_^;;;;;;
  7. Aunt Vanya:- Uncle Gregor:- While most members of the Family despair at their lost humanity, Vanya and Gregor have embraced becoming the monsters they always knew they were... Presenting Vanya and Gregor, a pair of Ghouls from Games Workshop. These two took far longer to paint than they really should have, but I'm pleased with how they turned out. As always any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  8. A mountain of a man in life, he was still an imposing figure in death. Presenting Jakob the Giant (The name doesn't make a lot of sense when he's solo like this, but he is somewhat larger than the rest of the skellies in the set), he's part of a Warhammer Underworlds set I've named Reinharts Deaths Heads. Pretty happy with this guy, think I managed to make his armour look well worn without going the rusty route, now I just need to get the rest of the Deaths Heads painted! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  9. I've made no secret about my opinions on Games Workshop. Though my painting box is full of their miniatures they were always bought second and sometimes third hand (I never wanted GW to get any of my money). Even my previous Cadians were bought from my local games store that has no affiliation with GW (I also know those sets and blisters came with the business when it was bought almost twenty years ago). Now I find myself in the unique position of building a Cadian army. My wife and I used to play weekly in D&D Adventure League but with the birth of our first child it looks like that won't be possible (We want to continue gaming at our current store but its a bit of drive and the kid is at the rolling stage so she doesn't want to be held or sit in her seat; she wants to be on the floor and we all know what gameshop floors are like). I've offered to watch the child so she can go or to switch off each week but she only wants to go together. Gaming together has always been part of our relationship, and she doesn't want to lose that. I couldn't agree more, its good to share a hobby with your spouse. That's when our friends started trying to recruit us to play Warhammer 40K with them. At first I was resistant but our friends get together often to play and in our area its always possible to find a game (Depending on the size it can be played fairly quickly in comparison to D&D too). After some discussion we decided 40K would give me something to paint, but it would also give us both something to play and eventually something to play together. Which brings us to this new project. Since I figured watching me assemble miniatures would be pretty boring I'm starting this thread right before I prime them. So here is most of my assembled starter set (I've got quite a few cheap sets of bits arriving over the next couple weeks and I'm not exactly sure what unit I'd like to create next so that's why I have so many unfinished figures). I'm still not a big fan of GW but having an excuse to see our friends more often is pretty nice. In a way we're kinda trading one gaming group for another (that sounds pretty mean but I think you understand what I'm saying).
  10. Presenting the Skeletal Guard Captain (He has a name but I can't find it) from the game Warhammer Quest:- Cursed City by Games Workshop. Rather pleased with this one, particularly his cape! As always any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  11. Presenting a Chain Lord, the head of the Slaver Guild set for the game Necromunda from Games Workshop. Had my eye on the Necromunda range for awhile, but bad past experiences with Forgeworld resin put me off (Still the triangles haunt me!), the stuff's not too bad now, still a big pain in the bum to clean up though! Anyways, really pleased with how this guy painted up, just got the rest of the gang to do now. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  12. Just to be clear I'm doing this by special request of my buddy @Glitterwolf. Here is my little dude all finished off.
  13. Wanted to get a quick paint in tonight. Saw this guy on my table and figured I could knock him out fast. This was 3 tests: 3 colors only (and black) NMM Light source I'm very happy with the results. I ended up basing him too, so here's the finished one.
  14. Lady Florence, a member of a more proactive side of the Order of Justicar, who research and seek out lost knowledge and forgotten relics, hoping to secure them before they fall into the hands of evil. She is aided in this task by the Light of Truth, a magical lantern that not only illuminates but reveals things that are hidden. Presenting Lady Florence, one of my many, many, many Warhammer:- Underworlds minis I have to paint up. Not my best work, I kept finding bits I'd missed, but she's done and that's what's most important at the moment. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  15. Got another one of these polished off. I really like these vampire models from GW. I'm also very happy that Spooktober is forcing me to paint more.
  16. Presenting Erik the Grim along with Vadis the Thorn Hound, 2 of the many Warhammer Underworlds minis I'm slowly trying to paint. Pretty pleased with both of them, but mostly I'm just happy to get something finished! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received!
  17. Presenting Torgillius the Chamberlain, one of the big bads from Warhammer Quest:- The Cursed City by Games Workshop, and is the latest result in my attempt to (Very slowly) get the game painted up, as documented in my WIP thread. Despite making life hard for myself by painting his animal minions first and then having to try and paint everything else around them (The fox? got in the way a lot!), I'm really pleased with how he turned out, particularly my attempt at a bit of writing on his noticeboard thingy. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  18. Wanted to have another crack at getting all my Warhammer Underworlds stuff painted up (I've got almost 200 to do now). Rather than doing them in big batches, which can get overwhelming and then go unfinished, I'm going to try and paint each team, starting with my Hedonites:- A group of pleasure-seekers and obsessives brought together by a mysterious entity, the Hedonites endlessly pursue new extreme sensations and experiences when not carrying out tasks for their unknown leader. From left to right we have Vasilios (Obsessive hunter), Despina (Thrill killer and Vasilios's sister), Polyxeni (Mistress of mirror magic), Leonidas (Broken soldier) and Dimos (Drug-addled mutant). I'm starting with Poly:- She's not an Underworlds mini, but she fits in with the set. Made a start on her skin (Rosy Flesh with a Flesh Wash), not looking forward to getting in under her fancy hat to paint her eyes.
  19. I recently acquired the latest of Games Workshops Warhammer Quest games:- The Cursed City. I'd actually like to completely paint one of these things for once, and thought a project thread might help! First, I built everything (Well, maybe everything. Games Workshop continues to be kinda weird about this game, so I'm not sure if it's getting expansions or not):- And then made a spreadsheet. I can't batch paint, so even simple minis (like the rats and skeletons) I've put in small groups to help maintain momentum. I rolled a 5 (actually I rolled a 30 and then a 32, but I know this project is doomed if I start with a rat pile instead of something interesting):- Brutogg Corpse-Eater, unusual Ogre:- I've made him a simple base (I've been spoilt by all the integral ones I've been dealing with lately), mostly sand with some broken flagstone patches made of putty, and gave him the usual White Primer and Brown Wash undercoat. Leaving him to dry overnight.
  20. Hello everyone, here's the fifth dwarf of my Slayer unit. This model was sculpted in the mid-90s by Aly Morrison. Since I have two of these models in the unit I decided to convert this one. He was a standard bearer, I swap his banner for an axe. It was ll painted with Reaper MSP Color, here's the list;
  21. Hey everyone, this is the fourth Oldhammer dwarf of my Slayer unit. It was sculpted by Aly Morrison. All painted with Reaper MSP Color, here's the list;
  22. Hello everyone, here's my third Dwarf Giant Slayer. This model was also sculpted by Aly Morrison. All painted with Reaper MSP Color, here's the list;
  23. Presenting Celine, an Elf archer from the Luminth warband in the Warhammmer:- Underworlds game by Games Workshop. Lots of fiddly bits on this one, but she came out alright in the end. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  24. Was rummaging thru my loose figures when ran across this old classic and thought it might be a little fun to do after Oman, his long, lost brother.
  25. Presenting Jelsen the Vampire Hunter from Games Workshops Warhammer Quest:- Cursed City board game. Pretty pleased with this one, I was worried about how to paint certain areas (Like his little tucked away face), but I think he ended up looking decent. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
