The latest issue of the 9th Scroll is here! You can read all about it in the news.
Thanks dude. I agree, the original model is a bit bland, i hat ethe crew, especially the gimp at the back with the cloak, he's awful. Not sure why they decided to make the crew look so boring. Why didn;t they just make them look like the regular warriors of chaos? At least i've got plenty of bits for the bits box now.
I'm back but i've been far from lazy since i last posted. I have recently attended the Midlands GT where i won Best Painted by Judges Choice and got 2nd Best Painted by Player vote. So happy with that and it's good that all the work i've been putting into the army is appreciated. Anyway for this last tournament i decided to get my Daemon prince and my Bloodbeast painted as they have been sitting around all grey and unpainted for ages.
The Daemon Prince was an absolute delight to paint, the level of detail on the model is phenomenal and it just made itself much easier to paint, especially those wings. Shame he sucks on the battlefield as i'll now be cursed to use him forever as he is easily the best thing i've ever painted.
The Bloodbeast on the other hand was a complete horror to paint. That top carapace was the stuff of nightmares, it's all spikes and large flat round surfaces. I was trying to go for a beetle style black carapace and make it shiny like an insect so i put some gloss varnish over it. think it turned out alright. One day i might go back to it and tackle it again but it's unlikely as there is plenty more on the painting table.
I've also got a mini tutorial prepared for how i do my bases so i will hopefully put that up in a couple of weeks but first i need to write up the battle reports for the Midlands GT, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Thanks for reading.
Be sure to hurry up with the tutorial. Those bases are amazing!
I've recently been invited to join the Content Team which i obviously accepted! I now have a blog over on the blog part of the forum and i have just done my first post on there which is a guide to how i do my bases. So you can read that here. I will continue this blog but mostly with updates of new units for my army. The Fallen are next on the painting table and i've finally caved in and decided to try using a Sorcerer!
I'm going to use the other Blog for Modelling and Painting guides as well as other hobby related stuff.
I have also finished my latest tournament battle reports which was a slog and took me the best part of two weeks to complete but that can be found here. I'm also going to be writing battle reports for the ninth scroll so make sure to check the next edition of that out when it's released.
Good evening all.
I have recently been at a tournament this weekend gone so i will hopefully start writing that one up soon. It was a 6 game tournament so it is going to take even longer to write than normal.
Anyway, i decided to introduce a new unit to my list so i could paint that as well actually getting round to painting my Fallen that i converted months ago. So here they are:
These guys were kit bashed together from a variety of different GW kits, the Wrathmongers, the Blood Warriors and the old Forsaken sprues were used. I wanted them to look like my other Warriors so that's why i didn't want to go with just the Forsaken models and wanted to add in some flavour from the other kits. Also i like converting.
The other model i painted was a Sorcerer, not Wrath i know but an important addition. He's just the Wizard model from the GW Manticore on a Chaos Knight horse. Nothing fancy but looks good i think.
until next time!
Stunning miniatures and paintjobs! Makes for a very coherent yet impressive force on the tabletop, I imagine.
Makes me wanna switch to full wrath with my warriorsMoreover, I consider that the Seven Sins should be destroyed as an army background.
That cape is awesome! Really nice paint job.
Also, I just read your batrep in the scroll. It must have felt really good playing up against someone who obviously puts as much effort into the look and feelof their army as you do."The combination of lemon and habenero peppers was confusing to me.
