Age of Sigmar: Reinforcements and more

Not reinforcements in game terms just yet though. But I finally got my box of AoS from Wayland Games (it had been in the post office here for over a week without me knowing it :( ) Anyway, got some nice stuff in here so here we go.

My camera battery charger is still missing, so photos taken with my OnePlus One Phone will have to do.
So what do we got here, an Lord-Celestant on foot, and Lord-Castellant with his Gryphound. One box each of Paladins, Liberators and Judicators. The two AoS books (and I really like these), two new terrain pieces and an assortment of new round and oval bases.

So a lot of stuff, so far I have only checked everything out and I like everything, details are nice and crisp a lot of bits which is nice as we didn't have any with just the AoS starter box. Read through the books, not expecting much because of what many says about on the interwebz. But I really liked them, it's what I wanted really. More scenarios, more fluff and some nice pictures. Sure many pages are wasted on stuff we already seen, warscrolls, the rules etc. But I really liked to read them actually.

I want more stuff, like the Celestant-Prime, the Portals and some of the future releases for the Stormcast Eternals. But will wait with that order, for now I have plenty to do already.

Warzone: Resurrection - Two new limited edition books

Prodos Games announced two limited edition books yesterday, one is for about the Imperial Corporation is on 84 pages in full color. Of course you will have all the rules in there as well as background, new artwork etc. You can find it here. There is just 132 copies left when I checked one minute ago, so if you want one you better get it asap!

The other one is Heroes of the Solar System, which is the same as the PDF with rules to customize your heroes as well as rules for new units for all the Corporations and Dark Legion. This is book is 40 pages and in full color as expected, you get new artwork and fiction in this book, not sure if there is any new rules apart from the ones in the PDF though. This book is also Limited Edition, and only 145 copies left last time I checked. You can find the book here.

I have ordered both of them already of course, together with some new models for Imperial and Dark Legion.

Imperial Life Dragoons looks just like they should, totally awesome models!
Also purchased the imposing Praetorian Goliath, and his little....
friend, the Imp!
That's it for now, both books arrives end of September so looking forward reading the books and put together the models.

News: Games Workshop to come out with Airbrush paints

We have heard the rumors, and GW is finally getting their own Airbrush paint range. But.... just as with the Forgeworld Airbrush paints they are still not in dropper bottles. Crazy! I have a lot of Vallejo Air and Game Air and really like them, nice consistency and you don't have to dilute them just drop it into your airbrush and go.

Hopefully the GW colors will be the same, well accept the fact that you can't just drop into your Airbrush, you must either use an pipette or an brush to get it in. Why?!? In my mind dropper bottles are superior in every single way, and for Airbrush paints a nobrainer. Well well at least we have the alternative now.

I often use GW paints in my airbrush but I need to dilute a lot at least the new paints saves us that step.

Miniature Monday: Stormcast Eternals Lord-Celestant on Dracoth

The Miniature Monday curse does it's job still... Well, for you who don't now, I often want to show a new finished model each Miniature Monday. Everything is done, then something happens. Computer crashes, I drop the model and his head fell of, suddenly you can't take decent pictures, kids can't sleep etc etc. Well this day was one of those, the battery in my camera went low, and I can't find my charger!

I took some pics before, they didn't get that great though so this one without full focus will have to do for today, promise to take more and better pictures tomorrow! If I can just find that damn battery charger....

News: Stormcast Eternals Celestant Prime pictures! Updated!

More stuff for the Stormcast Eternals, the Celestant Prime is even wielding the Ghal Maraz itself into battle, and would probably be a beast in combat (and from the looks of it he is probably some kind of spellcaster as well)

Awesome miniature, and I will love to paint these fella up. Even if this miniature is the most unique looking for the Stormcasts so far I still think they all look so similar. Would love them to get something else (normal humans maybe having some kind of warmachine or something). But other than that I really like the look of this one, a mini Sormcast version of Nagash.

Got these pics via Faet212 and Plastic Krak.

UPDATED! I also found the Warscroll for him, he not a wizard but have some quite interesting rules. Pic is further below. Via Atias War of Sigmar.

My Warriors of Chaos army - Last time on squares

This is sad and exciting at the same time, here are the last shots on my fully Warriors of Chaos before moving on to round and oval bases for Age of Sigmar.

It's sad because I have always loved how big blocks of troops looks, and I have to cut these up as I want to keep the actual terrain on the bases as much as possible.

But it's also exciting, I'm really digging AoS. I like the simple rules, the warscrolls and so on. If you don't? Well we all have different taste, but this is a resurrection for me and my closest friends who now actually want to get involved into the game and build their armies. This is the most important bit for me.

Also, as I rebasing my troops I will also touch up the paint jobs on some of them. Most of them look good as they are but some minor tweaks here and there as well as adding some extra details to the bases. Because now they are seen much more and often you get some extra room on the bases as well.

And before some of you yells, you don't need to rebase becasue you can use squares on AoS, as well as 8th, Ninth Age and whatever. You are totally right, I don't need to do it. But I will play much more AoS than 8th and I don't know If will ever play Ninth Age, or even KoW.

And while playing AoS on squares works fine, it does not look good aesthetically for me. And I think that all this jazz about measuring from the closest point of the model is just a transition phase, and we will see official base sizes on rounds and ovals in the future.

Also rounds have some advantages of squares in my mind. First, it frames individual models better. And second, a unit of five normal infantry for example didn't look like a full unit or take even an odd number like 7-8, 13-14, I hated when an rank wasn't complete. If you now field an unit of 13 models in a unit, it does look better and more like an full unit of models. It might be just me, but that's what I think. And third, you don't need to think about their poses so they can rank up. Love this.

Anyway, I'm slowly going to rebase these guys. So here's last pictures showing all of my painted WoC models on squares.
