  • Episode 11! Thats a year of hobby (I missed a month)! It would be great to get some feedback on this "series" if anyone actually enjoys seeing what we have done each month. Is there something you would like to see more of?

    Anyway. Enjoy!

    Oliver

    "Mercenary" WIP. I've always wanted to do a unit of Mercenaries, but since I'm a practical being, the prospect of modelling 7-8 unique models that all have to be magnetized was a bit daunting. I do love converting, but this specific project was just something that I had to push myself into. I decided to help myself with some easy bits, that had been used by many other ogre players, and if it turns out too "ordinary", I will have a new hunter model at least!




    Rasmus

    I have continued to work on my WotDG Pestilence project! To paint my once Chosen, I have used full Duncan's Painting Guides on Youtube, and the entire army is built around the colors he uses in those videos. My first thought was to make it a swamp theme with cliffs. However as I just bought a winter table (as you can see in the latest 9th Scroll), I decided to change the swamp to an icy lake. The Pox walkers behind the bases will be my barbarian regiment, along with some Games Workshop Nurglings. I used the same techniques for the walkers as I used for the Once Chosen. The Snails will be used as warhounds and were made from actual snail shells and goblin spider legs. I am hoping to have a game ready army for the Danish tournament Battle of Copenhagen in February.

    This month I have been really trying to clear my painting table for space. I have so many models and not so much space. I had half painted my Vampire Spawn so finished those off. They were a bit of a modelling project as I had lost 2 legs somewhere and re-positioning the models to fit the ruined building was a bit of a task! I like to add some humans that are getting eaten/killed etc to give the army a bit of character, and this was no different.

    The Bats were taking up a lot of space and only took a little time to paint. They were done using exactly the same scheme as the Vampire spawn, down to the eyes, to give coherence to the bats of the army. I also added some unfortunate humans being chased and carried off by the "Happy Bats"!

  • This months hobby progress from the Ammertime Team:

    Henry - Not much to show for this month. I have been in Mongolia for 3 weeks and organising a 100 person event. I found time to make a good start on my forest ranger conversions though :) They are built from a number of different GW kits but mostly a combination of the Shadow warrirors and leftover Wildwood ranger kits from my forest guards.



    Casimir - This month was the lead up to Giant Fanatic and as such I've been rushing to complete everything for my list. The list I started out with was quite ambitious, with a lot to be painted. In the end I didn't manage to finish a second sphinx but basically everything else was completed. I finally finished my Shabti unit which has been years in the making. Painted my second colossus, also made from a Kratos action figure, you might have seen the first one in the 3rd edition of the scroll. I added one more winged reaper to my unit and polished off my architect conversion. All in all its been a pretty hectic month.



    Lasse Giant Fanatic 2017! I planned to make an narrative army, where I only used my hero - and special points on minotaurs. The pictures show my 4 heroes! This was the list:


    Minotaur Chieftain [495pts] Battle Standard Bearer, Flail, Upgrade to Totem Bearer, Bronze Breastplate, Potion of Swiftness, Talisman of Greater Shielding


    Minotaur Chieftain [450pts] Flail, Upgrade to Totem Bearer, Aaghor's Flayed Hide


    Minotaur Chieftain [370pts] Flail, Eye of Dominance, Mithril Mail


    Minotaur Warlord [684pts] Army General, Beast Axe, Heavy Armour Crown of Autocracy, Hardened Shield, Talisman of Supreme Shielding


    1x21 Mongrel Herd, shield, Standard
    3x10 Mongrel Raiders - Ambush & Scout [120pts]
    1x35 Wildhorn Herd, PW, FCG, Banner of the Wild Herd
    1x7 Minotaur, PW, FCG, Stalker’s Standard
    1x7 Minotaur, PW, FCG, Aether Icon
    1x3 Minotaurs [261pts] GW
    1x3 Minotaurs [255pts] PW



    Rasmus - I have been experimenting with ice effects on my bases and completed some Once Chosen for my Warriors of the Dark Gods army!

  • Hi Guys and welcome to another installment of Ammertime's Tale of Many gamers!

    We are a bit late with a podcast which I am currently listening through and editing as I write this. Sorry about that. I have also been hard at work on the 9th Scroll the past month which hopefully will make up for it! The Podcast will be released tomorrow.

    Anyways here is the month in the hobby! Press "read more" to view the pictures :)

    Oliver

    Since our last tournament, the more time consuming part of painting the army has been begun. Everything was only tournament painted for Battle of Copenhagen, and seeing as the next tournament is only a week away, I found it only fitting to get some easy fixes to the overall look. Hence bases are getting some love. A single model top left has been shown for reference of the difference.




    Ulrik

    I been looking for some new Cave trolls for some time, but could not find any interesting models that I liked. When I saw these brutes from Games Workshop, I thought that they matched the profile of a cave troll pretty well with the plate armor being a good representation of the innate defense!



    Henry

    This month has been crazy for me! New apartment has meant a month of renovations, painting walls, fitting lights etc. As well as this, I have been editing the 9th scroll. Unfortunately I havent been able to play many games, however I did get some painting done this weekend.

    I converted a shapeshifter a little from Hidden dreams. Great model. Shame the rules are rubbish at the moment.

    Next weekend we have a tournament in Aarhus and I want to play with Treekin. I converted some from the Games Workshop Hunter models. I have bought another 3 so hopefully I can get them ready as well.

    I also started re-basing my Sylvan Elves. You can see my Dragons base shown with some birch seeds which look like leaves. The plan is to add the seeds to the whole army to give a bit more depth in the bases and a bit more colour.

  • Hello and welcome back to another episode of A Tale of Many Gamers.

    Unfortunately the podcast has not happened the last few months. I have just moved apartments and my energy has been put towards that end. However, we will be back very soon with some more content. In the meantime, strap in for some updates in the hobby (also a little thin on the ground this month).

    Oliver

    This month I painted army which was finished before Battle of Copenhagen. At the time, everything was painted quite quickly, but made so that I could return and do the finishing layers and touches at a later time. Here are the results:

    Ulrik

    This month Ulrik has made what can only be described as a "Combat Gauge!" Simply for want of a better word. This mad-genius-esq contraption can measure arcs of sight as well as the spacing between units and, I think the 6" panic bubbles. Made by hand from cutting and filing a metal sheet, Ulrik has engineered this to an almost Dwarven precision.



    His newly painted master engineer would be proud:



    Casimir

    This month I planned on doing a ton of painting, being really enthused after Battle of Copenhagen. But work, life and other stuff got in the way as it always does. I did however manage to get some work on my Pharaoh in chariot model. Even tough I'm not sure it will see any play for some time I really want to finish this awesome model before I move on to something else, lest it ends up forgotten in some box. At this point only the chariot is completely done but its coming along at least.

  • 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:

    Casimir

    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.



    Ulrik

    My army the night before Battle of Copenhagen... and the discussion we had about count as models.. and the the army at the tournament



    Andy

    I went to Battle of Copenhagen with a WDG Chosen army that I started working in mid January.

    The army:
    Wrath Lord on Chariot
    Lust Lord on Steed of lust
    BSB
    8 Barbarian horsemen of Lust
    14 Warriors of True Chaos
    5 Fallen
    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.



    The Characters

    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 :D
    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.



    Henry

    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 ammertimedk@gmail.com!

  • 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:

    Henry

    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.





    Oliver

    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!




    Ulrik

    Just preparing for the tournament.. painting details and putting on magnets!



    Simon

    "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" .



    Casimir
    [b][/b]
    [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.

  • Hello!

    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!

    Rasmus

    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.

    Henry

    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





    Oliver

    Not so frosty frost-cow in the african bush! Lowering enemy's initiative solely by it's coolness factor!





    Ulrik

    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.

    Lasse

    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)

    Casimir

    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.

  • Hello All,

    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.


    Ulrik's Dwarves

    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 ammertimedk@gmail.com 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).

  • Hello All,

    Something a little different from Ammertime Podcast this week! Welcome to "The tale of Many Gamers!" We on the Ammertime team are going to bring to you a fabulous tale of hobby frivolity as we begin new projects, finish old ones and create a regular stream of hobby porn for your faces.

    The idea behind this "Tale of Many Gamers" comes from that "Old days of White Dwarf regualr article" which is much commended by us not so old neckbearded 9th-agers.
    Basically what we will (try to) do is bring you a hobby update from the land of Amager ('Ammer) on the 1st of every month! This will usually be in the form of some pictures of our finished or WIP models that we are working on. We have a group of around 10-12 regular guys so unlike the much celebrated article of old, it will lack a little continuity, but I hope in time, I can convince all the guys to give me some material every month.

    Do not fear, our regular broadcasts will continue shortly.

    November 2016:

    Casimir:

    The thing that's always attracted me to the Undying Dynasties are the constructs. The idea of these cold emotionless statues coming to life and mechanically wreaking havoc on the battle field. Unfortunately in previous games' iterations of the Egyptian undead fielding a list with such a focus wasn't really possible. Now with the 9th age Shabti and Sphinxes are finally viable alternatives to Necropolis guard. So since previous times I have already amassed a substantial amount of skeletons, chariots and warmachines for my Undying Dynasties, now I plan to add more statues to the fray.



    For the first month I wanted to show the beginnings of the backbone of my army, the Shabtis. The theme I'm trying to go for with my constructs is a turquoise, black marble/stone look. I'm not sure how well its come through since there isn't a lot of room to do a lot of veining on these miniatures. The rest of my army follow a neon green and deep red colour scheme, this was shamelessly stolen from one of the sample armies in the 6th edition Tomb king book. I think the plating on the armour really benefits from the alternating colours, even though it's quite time consuming to paint.



    I also recently finished my first Sand Scorpion. This bugger was quite a beast to paint due to the whole thing being made of stone. I think the basic scorpion model can look quite wonky if just placed on a base so I converted it to seem like its climbing down a pillar. The pillar is a simple wedding cake plastic accessory and relatively easy to work with. I also never really liked the golden scorpion head, so I opted to simply make the whole thing in stone instead. Looking back on it perhaps it lacks a bit of contrast but I tried to make up for it by painting glowing eyes. I'm considering going back and adding those to all my constructs, but I haven't decided yet.

    Kristoffer:







    Ive been working on mainly bases these past weeks. I think the base of the miniature amounts to 33% of the overall impression of how good a miniature looks. Which (to me) means that a miniature cannot get a higher rate than 66% on its paintjob. Always paint the edge of your base a dark tone. I usually go with black but a dark brown works well with models that are more earth-toned. The bases of the tower guards are actually green marble that are made for bathroom-tiles. They are 20x20mm so fit perfectly. I plan to add more details to them, probably flowers like on the angels below. Those flowers are from railway-model company Busch, and are H0 size poppies and H0 Roses. They are a pain to put together so be warned!





    Ulrik:

    I got the idea for these forge wardens from another guy. I made a mold of the flame cannon crewman and then used som resin to make the models. The irondrake guns was found in a bits webshop.





    Lasse:

    Hi all,

    I'm currently working on a project I can use as a show piece for my company products. My friends told me, that I should make a blog about it, so here it is!

    The idea is to make a corrupted and dark Sylvan Elves army that isn't green nor brown, here you can see the results so far, please don't hesitate to let me know, if you have any comments or ideas!

    A lot of people ask me where the movement trays and bases are from, and they are from my company Magnetic. You can see more here: facebook.com/Magnetic-Movement…1554361148188992/?fref=ts

    Henry:

    This is a little different from my usual Vampire project or Elf collection. This is a WIP of my first commission piece that I am building for Rasmus. Rasmus is working on a Warriors of the Dark Gods army that will be themed as a Pestilence force. He asked me to make him a model which can be used for all the monsters, including an Elder Dragon Centaur. The first problem here was the base size. Although it is not shown here, I have magnetised a cavalry base which attaches to the front of "Baxter" (named after the villain in the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles who is… [Read More]
