WarGods Amazons for Cancon 2020 (Jan 26)


Recommended Posts

So I'm going to see if putting together a diary helps me with motivation in getting this army completed in time for a tournament in January 2020.

 

First of all, the idea - in Canberra, Australia we have a convention (Cancon) every January, it's been going for something like 30+ years, and for about the last decade we've had a WarGods tournament running.

 

After a Kickstarter I have an Amazon warband sitting in bare metal so I decided that for 2020 I'll take that Warband. First of all I have to work out the army list, then prepare the models for painting.

 

So, onto the army list:

Amazon Demigod of Hecate, Ka 2, second Ka power Skin of Marble

 

Still have to work out what to equip her with, but with the Ka power she can't take armour...

 

13 Hellhounds - using Reaper's WarPugs - 12 War Pugs based in pairs with a Reaper Foo Dog as the leader

 

5 x Outriders - Horse Archers

5 x Outriders - Horse Archers

12 x Peltasts

Mother of Serpents (effectively a Minoan snake priestess)

That takes me to about 905 from a maximum of 1750 points, so I'll need to work out what to use the remaining points for, I do need to take some basic warriors, which will set me back 25pts/model (so I can potentially take 30 of them), and I may take some Raiders instead of outriders (they are spear-armed cavalry)

 

Anyway, I'll try and get some photos of the basic models tomorrow and go from there...

That's an impressive army!

 

Not yet...Maybe when it's painted!

 

Running the numbers, for my Amazons I should have

1 x Demigod

1 x Mounted Demigod

2 x Honor Guard

36 x Spearwomen

12 x Peltasts

12 x Archers

2 x Hero/Champion

10 x Swordswomen

10 x Raiders (spear cavalry)

10 x Outriders (horse archers)

1 x Herald

1 x Musician

 

That's the specifically Amazon figures, on top of that I also have demigods for Hecate, Athena and Artemis that I can use (that is demigods specific to those goddesses, the one above is supposed to represent Queen Penthesilea)

Well, I did get some painting done tonight, but no photos (maybe tomorrow when the light is better).

 

Warband ends up being:

Demigod

13 x Hellhounds

10 x Outriders (horse archers)

24 x Spearwomen (2 units)

12 x Peltasts

2 x Heroes

1 x Manhunter (Specialist hero)

1 x Mother of Serpents

 

So far I've managed to get the cloth on the Spearwomen (GW contrast Iyanden Yellow), Peltasts (GW contrast Militarium Green), Outriders (GW contrast blue) and the Heroes (Army Painter Red Tone over Reaper Fresh Blood) done, as well as get some grey liner on the Hellhounds so I can paint

 

Plan at the moment is as follows:

Skin: Reaper Flesh Wash over Reaper HD Caucasian Flesh (Reaper Fair Maiden for the Mother of Serpents and Demigod)

Armour: Something using a Gold base, exact details to be determined

Spear Blades/Swords: Black Wash over Reaper Tarnished Steel

Horses: Reaper Ruddy Brown with a wash of some description over it, TBD

Wood: Reaper Ruddy Brown

Leather, shields and hair: TBD
