  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Welcome back to part 2!

    In this episode, fanboys are treated to listening to Kristoffer and Henry discussing Narrative games and scenarios as a method of deciding the winner. You can see below some of the scenarios we have come up with.

    The second part is a bit more interesting. Kristoffer discussed his Kingdom of Equitaine list and gives some tips with regards to army selection.

    Henry talks about his Vampire list and some of the elements of Vampire Covenant army selection (by no means an expert opinion).

    The 6 primary scenarios you can find here:

  • Welcome back to Ammertime!

    This podcast is a bit of an amalgamation of last months events.

    We talk a bit about what we are doing in the hobby.

    Henry discusses his trip to England and the games at Pigmar Wargaming Club in Bath.

    www.pigmar.co.uk/

    Kristoffer has a wee rant about 1.2

    Henry interviews a coupe of Danish ETC guys to hear about their build up to the ETC next year.

  • 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]


  • Welcome to Episode 17.

    This is a quicky about the new KoE release. There has been a lot of negativity about the book so we thought we should share our slightly more positive angle with the community to get a balanced view out there.

    Hopefully this will give you a little more faith in the lady to keep you going while you test the new book.

    Ammertime team. [Read More]

    Lastly they talk about Henry's new "Raging Fire" HBE list.

    Enjoy! [Read More]

  • Hello all!

    Sorry for the hiatus. We have been very busy. From Ammerhammer to ETC warm up and various other 9th age goodness we have finally gotten round to bringing you AMMERHAMMERRRRR!!! (Ammerhammer)

    For those who dont know, we ran a tournament on the 5th of June in Copenhagen. We love you 9th age peeps and we always want to give you something back. Therefore we did a live stream of table 1 at our tournament (well table 1 for the first two rounds and table 2 for the last round). If you missed the live stream (we assume that people have more interesting things to do), we recorded it and now you have ammerhammer on demand! Well, we actually lost game 2, however this wasnt the most interesting game (it was really long and it was mostly just Henry talking to himself and tommy tucker for 3 hours).

    But with no further ado. We give you Ammerhammer!



    Game 1



    Game 3



    We would really like some feedbackso that if we choose to do this again, we can make the experience better for everyone who is watching! So please give us some feedback, both positive and negative is appreciated!

    You can email us at ammertimedk@gmail.com

    Also here are some photos of Mads Ingvars winning Demon Legion army, and his army list.
