A Tale of Many Gamers Part 5!
We have been very busy this month. Many of us getting ready for the Battle of Copenhagen. Here's what some of the guy's have been doing this month:
Battle of Copenhagne came and went, I think in the end I switched lists around at least 20 times. Adverse effects of this was that I didn't focus my painting at all and ended up with 5ish unfinished projects. In the end I decided to make it easy for myself and take a necroguard star list. The only thing I needed to finish up was basically some characters. So this month i finished a Harbringer and a Pharaoh.
At Battle of Copenhagen I got a lot of helpful comments about my army, mostly my bases so I decided to jazz them up a bit. I've changed the edges to black, which quite frankly I don't know why I didnt do earlier and I added some tufts. In the future I will probably add some variation in the vegetation as well but for now I only had one color.
My army the night before Battle of Copenhagen... and the discussion we had about count as models.. and the the army at the tournament
I went to Battle of Copenhagen with a WDG Chosen army that I started working in mid January.
Wrath Lord on Chariot
Lust Lord on Steed of lust
8 Barbarian horsemen of Lust
14 Warriors of True Chaos
5 x 10 lust chosen
When I started in January I had the 14 warriors and the 8 horsemen done and nothing else. Everything else I have to be assembled and paint in 1 month and here is the result.
This was the first time I tried my new airbrush for something other than a base coat and I think the result I okay. The base coat of on the cape on the lust lord is black, then at purple with airbrush, purple wash, a little lighter purple with the airbrush in an angle and in the end a new layer of white.
The Chosen of lust
I got the last 40 chosen for my Army just 3 weeks before Battle of Copehagen so those 3 weeks was very busy for me. All my spare time was spent painting but who needs a social life
Basecoat is black, lots of gold, flesh and purple, Washed with nuln oil, highlight, purple wash and more highlights. All swords and axe have blood (blood for the blood god) on them. I still think that all the models need more highlights and all the bases need more work.
I have been super hobby-motivated this month. I have been very productive. As well as a casual third place in a pretty big tournament I have been working on about 3 armies.
I repaired Daisy the Dragon from the damage she sustained on the flight home from the UK.
I also had some Varkolak Inspiration and gave Polly a facelift and a makeover. For those not following my Vampire blog the-ninth-age.com/index.php?th…&postID=208236#post208236 Polly has a pretty in depth back story and is 90% scratch built.
I have also finished a couple of witch hunter wraiths. These have an ACTUAL story!
I also finished a chaos Chariot/hero/mauler for my Wrath army. These pictures aren't great but you get the idea
That's it for last months painting.
If you have any questions about any of the models/techniques/inspiration in this months blog, please get in touch either in the comments field below or send us some mail to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Ammertime team x [Read More]
Tale of many Gamers Part 4!!!!
This month on the Tale of Many Gamers, the Ammertime team prep for the Battle of Copenhagen Tournament coming up at the end of the month:
This month I have been very busy with the VC. I have finished my unit of skeleton halberdiers (the Templehof Mauverines) and a unit of bat swarms.
Wip shots of my tuskers, I opted for more red than the rest of my ogres so far, mostly to break monotomy. Everything is magnetized, and if I could say so myself, my magnetizing skills make up for the painting!
Just preparing for the tournament.. painting details and putting on magnets!
"He rips your head of and eats you heart as a snack" . "Bathing in the blod of his enemies, leaving his armour with a filthy smell and a horrendous rotten look" .
[b]This month Ive started work on my Tomb cataphracts again. I made this unit probably in the middle of 8th edition but never finished them. But now Im trying to go back in time for Battle of Copenhagen. The snakes are circled arpund wedding cake pillars, making them a bit tricky to build but quite nice in the end. Theres some details added like a greenstuff banner.[/b]
That's it for the hobby from last month. You can expect a pre tournament and post tournament podcast coming up in the next few weeks so stay tuned.

Its the 30th of the month (give or take) and that means only 1 thing! Tale of many Gamers is back. This is what the Ammertime guys have been up to the month of December!
Dread elf Fleet theme, corsairs assault from the sea!
-ed- Rasmus has themed his Dread Elves to be assaulting from the sea as merciless raiding pirates. This unit filler shown above sits in the back of his corsairs and give his unit a lot of character. It is made from a GW Dark Eldar ship and the corsairs are jumping out of the ship onto the shore. The sea and waves are built up with white miliput.
This month has been very busy for me. I have started a new job been back to the UK and had Christmas and New year. Nevertheless I have been a bit busy in the hobby.
I have continued to work with my Warriors of the Dark Gods, Mono Wrath army. I was struggling for models in the last game so I made another "generic unit filler" for either Warrirors, warhounds, knights, crushers etc. It made from the "Dolmen" from kinggames.dk (fantastic company by the way) and a lot of skulls and green stuff. It comes ready with the old Khorne symbol which fits perfectly with my theme. The skulls also fit in with my skull bases.
I have also done some work on the Vampire army. You can find it on my army blog: The Von Karlsteins
Not so frosty frost-cow in the african bush! Lowering enemy's initiative solely by it's coolness factor!
Some stone trolls for my orc army!
-ed- Ulrik has used the new GW Orc models for his stone trolls. They are large enough that they fit nicely onto 40mm bases.
This month I have devoted my time to answer customer requests, which have resulted in two great products for my company: https://www.facebook.com/Magnetic-Movementtraycom.../....
The first product is a movement tray for 5x2 (25x25mm) or 5x1 (25x50mm). The Chaos warriors you see in the picture is painted by Thomas Kyrsting.
The second product is a set of two movement trays used for 5 skirmishers (20x20mm). It is a two part tray, so it is easy to change formation during a battle.
This month I will try to finish my company website (future name: www.movementtray.com)
The holidays always mean plently of travel for me. As such I haven't been able to do any hobby at all. So I thought I would show you a picture of my colossus with scales. The base of the model is a kratos action figure with som warsphinx parts added on top. The model is quite tall but does look suitably imposing. The picture is from when it was nearly finished so there are some small details missing.
This is a slow time of year in Denmark. The days are short, the nights are long and there is little motivation for gaming (1.2 has had mixed reviews in our gaming group....podcast coming soon).
Nevertheless I bring to you the second iteration of our "Tale of Many Gamers."
Kristoffer's Assassins Creed Project
I've been working on 2 things: infantry and unit fillers. I'm making a unit of 50 pikemen out of the old riccos republican guard models from the dogs of war range.
Another dogs of war unit is braganzas besiegers.. The pavise crossbowmen in case you were wondering! Keeping the assassins creed theme, a unit champion is about to fall prey to an assassin hidden in a heystack!
In the same way, an assassin will be making his way through a unit with his three lovely companions distracting anyone looking. Haven't quite figured out which unit though.. Ideally it would be a unit standing at the ready..
Also I've scrounged up a unit of early empire crossbow men. This unit will not have any fillers as there is always that fine line of not using too many fillers in an army.
Henry's Wrath Warriors
Now world champion of Denmark, I have taken to my hobby side of things. This means, not playing a whole lot and enjoying some of the project that have fallen to the wayside. My Mono Khorne/Wrath army has had a few new editions in the last few weeks but this one is the only one which was finished this month.
The Wrath Priest (the reds look very orange on the photo. Not too sure why).
Casimir's Undying Dynasties
So this month I have a semi WIP picture of my first unit of Tomb reapers. It's a simple conversion blatantly stolen from @jouso , but I think it does feel egyptian enough. It's made out of the flying guys in the AoS starter set, very cheap on ebay, and some tomb guard parts. So far I've only done the highlights for one of the three.
I also put the finishing touches on a unit of carrion.
Oliver's Ogre Khans
First unit almost done for my west-african themed ogre army. Lots of bright colors inspired by the dahomey culture of Benin.
Not all units are african, such as a giant taken as a slave. Needless to say the giant is not acustomed to the climate. My first attempt at finding a way to create a sunburned look.
I been working on 30 of these ever since spear dwarfs came into the game. These are currently WIP.
Lasse "The Master" Blichfeldt Andersen
This month I have been working on my private project: Corrupted Sylvan Elves. Just finished my archers and Sentinals.
For my company (https://m.facebook.com/Magnetic-Movementtraycom-1554361148188992/), I have been working on movement trays that can help players to use 40k and AOS models for T9A.
That's a wrap for this month. Give us some feedback on what you see here. You can write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or post here on the forum.
The next podcast episode will be discussing the Danish ETC team (interview with Rasmus (player) and Dennis (coach)), tournament report from the Pigmar Wargaming club and also a bit of a rant about 1.2 from Kristoffer.
All coming soon on the next episode of Ammertime Podcast (sorry about the delay).
