Miniature Monday: Lord-Celestant on a Stardrake

A long while since I made an update here, I needed a break I suppose. I won't go into why and what not because that isn't interesting. What is interesting is that I haven't taken a break from painting, It's just that I have had a hard time actually finishing anything.

Partly because of this dude I'm showing you today. My second large model for my Lions of Sigmar Stormcast army is complete, and it's a really big one, the Stardrake. The rider is actually magnetized If I felt I wanted a Drakesworn-Templar instead (haven't painted him up yet though).

Even if this model took a long time for me to paint up I really enjoyed painting this, and I'm really happy with the end result. Also he looks great together with the rest of the army.

Will try to do more updates in the future, but I will be moving this month along with a lot of other stuff so I can't promise anything. Anyway hope you like it.

Miniature Monday: Freeguild General on a Griffon

Yup it's that day of the week again, missed posting for some weeks now but have a lot of stuff painted and some big projects I'm working on at the moment. Anyway, today I finished my General on a Griffon. Iv'e had this model since it was released in 8th edition (it was 8th right?!) and I built it, loved the model. But it never go any paint on, sadly. However, now in AoS they are quite nice in the game, and still looks cool as ever!

You may have noticed I used most of the Karl Franz (RIP) parts to make this model, I think it works very well in the AoS setting and I hope it does goes well together with the rest of the painting scheme I have on my Order army.

Miniature Monday: Retributors and army so far

Actually finished these two weeks ago but I haven't had time to take new photos, I have almost finished one of my Fulminators (I totally forgot how time consuming the Drakoth riders are!!) and working on five more Protectors as well.

Have been ill as well last week so not much updates for the blog as I had hoped to despite all the great things GW puts out! Like the new Stormcast book, will maybe do a review of that or more likely put together some lists I looking at for my first ever upcoming Tournament in April.

Until then, here's some pics of the army as well as the finished unit of ten Retributors.

Miniature Monday: Retributor Prime

So just a quickie today and an almost totally finished Retributor Prime. Did an small conversion on this one. I added a Tzaangor head from the Darkoth Chieftain sprue from Silver Tower and put some green stuff on. Like the result and makes it a little more unusal. More pics of him and the rest of the unit in the next couple of days.

Miniature Monday: Second unit of Judicators for my Lions of Sigmar

Actually finished these two weeks ago but never got around taking pictures of them. Well here's my second unit of my Judicators, painted them up quite fast (for being me) and with a better result than the first unit. Not much to say really, no conversions or anything, but I used the Realm of Battles bases for all of them and they are actually really nice to work with. Just need to add some more texture, stones, dirt and what not, but I liked how they turned out.

Thats all for today, working on my Retributors next and most of the base colors are done, so probably finished until next Miniature Monday. Cheers!

News: New Stormcast Eternals Vanguard Chamber pictures!

Just saw these in the comments for a post on War of Sigmar. Gryph Chargers I believe they are called, much more dynamic than the Dracoth Riders, I like! And a unit with really big crossbows and a cute bird. Really cool stuff!

Miniature Monday: Converted Free Peoples Cannon

After seeing Chris Peach's really cool looking Free Guild/Peoples army I got an itch I needed to scratch. I wanted to convert something similar and looked through my bitz box and found this Thunderbolt Crossbow from my Judicators kit. So I tried on a Mortar and voila. Added some more bitz in there and painted it up with a crew. Didn't do as much on the crew though, but I liked how it turned out.

I posted the first pictures during the last week on Twitter and both Chris and Duncan Rhodes from Warhammer TV among many others really liked it! I was happy as a kid in a candy store.

I must continue to paint my Stormcasts, but I think I must squeese in a model or two for my Free Peoples army. Oh and I have some Tzeentch stuff coming my way as well! OMG not enough time. Anyways, hope you liked this little conversion, I sure liked making it and painting it up.

Recap of 2016 and Hobby Resolution 2017

For the people who have followed this blog for while may have noticed that I have posted much less content this year to prior years. 2016 was a rough year for me personally, and I won't get into details but things is slowly progressing for the better.

Posting on the blog haven't been a priority though, even if I wanted to post a lot more and do other things to the blog I just didn't had the energy.

I did have energy for the hobby though, and I have painted quite a lot the last year. Maybe not as much models as before, but bigger models, and I have really taken the next step with my painting as well. 

Recap 2016

Chaos, Free Peoples and Destruction

I have been rebasing and repainted a lot. Most of my Chaos stuff is rebased and repainted where I thought that was needed. I started to rebase and repaint my Empire army as well, but it takes some time, I really like the result though so will continue doing this as an sideproject. I also painted up a model that was unfinished since 8th, the Celestial Hurricanum, I dread the thought of painting up another one from this kit but I would like to have an Luminark of Hysh. In the later months of the year I also started to rebase my Destruction force and an extensive repainting here as well as I change the colorscheme altogether. I will add to this force when I'm bored with my other stuff.

Stormcast Eternals

My main force is my Stormcast Eternals and I did get quite a lot of them painted last year. I want to be able to field the Warrior Brotherhood and Skyborne Slayers battalions and I have all the models I need. So will paint these up and I'm also working on my Stormcast Extremis.

I will do a another more detailed post about this army though, and this is the army I want to be as complete as possible in 2017.


I painted a few pieces of terrain for AoS as well last year, will add to this but I have a quite nice board and terrain right now so will just add to it for more variation and because it's fun to paint. 

Hobby highlights of 2016

My best model painting wise was by far my Celestant-Prime, it took a lot of time to paint. But it was all worth it in the end, such a nice model and I'm super happy with the result.

I love that this model is finished, Iv'e had it since it's release but after I finished the War Altar and the knowing of how long this kit takes to paint I never got to finish this one. But last year I decided to finish it. It's a REALLY time consuming model to paint and with so many sub assemblies that I some times thought it will never be finished. But I did! and I really like the end result and it mixes in well with the rest of my Order force.

I know how I want to paint my destruction force! This is a side project for now though, but it was really fun to paint up something different from my Order armies.

Hobby Resolutions 2017

So what to do in 2017? Well I think there will be plenty of stuff to do for me hobby wise. I will as the last two years focus on Age of Sigmar, now I'm even playing it more and will hopefully continue playing even more games in 2017.

When it comes to armies, my Nr 1 priority for this year is to finish most of my Stormcasts, I want to field two solid formations in Skyborne Slayers and Warrior Brotherhood, and bring in other stuff for variation, mainly my Extremis Chamber stuff.

I will start a Disciples of Tzeentch army, hopefully I can use the Tzeentch stuff I already got as a good base. And then add all the new stuff with Tzaangors and Kairic Acolytes. Really looking forward to this.

All the rest will be smaller sideprojects, Silver Tower goes with the DoT stuff, I will do some more Destruction stuff and maybe even some Warzone: Resurrection models.

That's my plan for 2017 and it may of course change, but I think I can stick to it.

My Tzeentch force will get some more friends

Tzeentch pictures from Jan 17 White Dwarf!

Just got my latest issue of White Dwarf today, and there's a lot of Tzeentch goodies in there. Just the first couple of releases so far but also a lot of info about the new Faction for Age of Sigmar. Thought I'd share the pictures from all the Tzeentch stuff, hopefully this gets you as excited as I am.

Really decent prize tags!

We see some Tzaangor Skyfires as well

Fighting against Free Guild and Devoted of Sigmar

Cool art of the Kairic Acolytes

Lovely artwork here! And we are seeing classic dwarfs..ehm Duardin which looks like Ironbreakers and even Gyrocopters.

A lot of options for the Tzaangor, including a banner which isn't that common in newer AoS kits.

Lovely artwork, left one is a Silver Tower.

Back of the magazine shows an Tzeentch army in all it's glory. Added Slaves to Darkness units as well!
