40K: Apostles of Contagion Characters and Drone

These long weeks are a proper killer! Done at last:

Lord of Contagion

Malignant Plaguecaster

Noxious Blightbringer

Foetid Bloat-Drone

A few conversions amongst the characters; i removed the nurgling and the horns from the LoC, put the Plaguecasters spew as fire from his hand, and the Blightbringer is arm swaps with a duplicate plague marine champion.

Shadespire: So hyped for this!

So the release date for Shadespire has finally been given, 21st October with preorder from the 14th! I cant describe how hyped i am for this it looks an amazing concept and game!

For me its been the play through videos that truly hint at the potential for the game, rather than something like the picture above, seeing the combos and strategies unfold on screen has got me wishing for a time machine haha.

Also announced are the release of the first two expansion warbands for the game, both released on the 4th November with preorder the week before:

These will provide not only new decking building options for the Blood Reaver and Stormcast forces but also whole new playstyles themselves with the Ironjawz being more aggressive versions of Sigmars boys and the Sepulcral Guard offering swarm tactics and recursion to overwhelm the enemy. GW also released this handy chart to give a rough break down on initial four factions:

We know that there are eight forces coming very soon, they are all mentioned in the rulebook and are previewed here:

Fyreslayers and Skaven are completely new, and the 7th/8th warbands are further Khorne and Stormcast forces with a box of Blood warriors and a Flesh Hound along with a box of Vanguard Hunters.

I will be going balls deep into this so expect painting and battle reports over the coming months!

Lord of the Rings: Hunter Orcs completed

Finished off my 12 Hunter Orcs today:

Not Golden Daemon by any stretch but they are serviceable hehe, and that takes me to 730pts fully painted!

I'm going to add a couple more heroes soon, and hopefully GW will release a warband pack for the Gundabad swords and spears like they have for the Lake Town models... and saving me 20 pounds in the process too.

Lord of the Rings: Gundabad Orc Army

Ive finally been convinced to start playing Lord of the Rings SBG hehe, its only taken two years of nagging by people haha!

I looked over the various forces and decided that a Gundabad Orc army was for me, these are the ones from the Hobbit trilogy rather than the original films:

Ringwraith of Dol Guldur (Using the Dimerlaik models)

Gundabad Orc Warband with Captain, Swords and Spears

Gundabad Ogres

Gundabad Berserkers

Bolg, Castellan of Mount Gundabad

I have a warband of twelve Hunter Orcs about half painted so will have them up shortly too. This all gives me just over 700pts, and our standard games are 600pts, but i want to add in more of the lower level heroes and another warband of troops to give me more options!

Black Gate Miniatures: Ogre Characters, Yetis and Savage kin

These are the first casts of the second kickstarter campaign which smashed it out of the park and funded the rest of the entire Ogre army:

Ogre Hero Pack

Ogre Shaman Pack

Ogre Savage Kin

Ogre Yetis

Again great fun to paint and very characterful, ive seen the Hill Giant and the Mammoths as well and im very much looking forward to painting them up for Black Gate too.

Age of Sigmar: More Hexwraiths

Yet again work has been a killer, and in the week following our tourney ive only managed to get the following 5 Hexwraiths completed:

At the event i picked up a few more bits to round out my force, so more updates on they army soon... hopefully!

Age of Sigmar: Nighthaunt Army

Busy busy busy over this last week!

Literally all my free time has been spent on this project:

Yep that is a 2000pt Nighthaunt Army for AoS that ive built and painted in just 8 days haha... I had 14 to do it in as i wanted to take a new force to a tourney on the 16th rather than my Khorne so it had to be a quickish project. Seriously tho, Nihilak Oxide is amazing, and if the army were already built i could have done maybe 4000pts in the same time!

Anyway, here are some individual unit shots:

Cairn Wraiths (Heroes)

Tomb Banshees (Heroes)

Spirit Hosts

Spirit Hosts




Mourngul took a bit of a hit with the GHB17 update and are now just good rather than stupid, i dont feel bad taking two of them in this force... if i have the time and it arrives i will try and get more Spirit Hosts and Hexwraiths painted rather than use the second Mourngul tho.

Age of Sigmar: Khorgorath

Behold! The third Khorgorath in my collection is now complete:

This guy completes the force i was planning to take to the Essex Fury event, but now there is a possibility that a mate of mine might be using the Khorne... i've started another force, can i paint it all in two weeks! We shall see haha, updates to follow!

Age of Sigmar: Bloodletters

Well August was a bit of a shitter for painting with work and holidays! Lets hope September is a big improvement... starting with these bad boys to give me a complete 30 strong unit of Khorne's footmen:

I have a third Khorgorath and 20 more Bloodreavers still my Bloodbound are complete... till i get Valkia and Skarr Bloodwrath of a mate that is hehe

Age of Sigmar: Khorne is back!

And im back to painting some moar Khorne for a tourney on the 16th! First up is a new general model in this Lord on Juggernaut:

On the paint station about half done are 20 Bloodletters to add to my existing 10 man unit... proper sized to be effective on the board at last!

Guildball: Farmer's Guild Team

Long have i had to wait patently for these models to arrive, but they have and they are amazing!

Grange (Captain) & Windle

Harrow, Jack Straw & Bushel

Ltd Ed Tater & Peck (Mascot)

Terrain Piece, Goal & Ball

Anyone with concerns about Guildball moving to plastics have nothing to worry about, these are superb sculpts and great casts too.

Age of Sigmar: Sayl the Faithless & Nightmaw

I feel a little dirty painting up these two... Sayl is a staple of many chaos tourney lists for his amazing spell that can fling a unit up the board very fast.

Ordinarily he wouldn't fit in my Blades of Khorne lists as he would break allegiance, but with the new allies system coming in GHB2 next week i should be able to add a Slaves to Darkness model to my force so figure what the hell, and i have a tourney in a couple of weeks to paint up for hehe:

Once i get my current project done i will be back on the khorne for a bit to get the force changed for this new event :-D

40K: Beginning a Primaris Marine Army

Ive been a bit sneaky... whilst working on the Apostles of Contagion and recent commissions i have been putting together my Primaris force, and now sit at about 2000pts of them.

At this point its all built, undercoated and first basecoat bar the Repulsor i picked up yesterday, but ive not got many models of it fully painted:

Redemptor Dreadnought

Primaris Lieutenant

My scheme is the Celestial Vindicators from Age of Sigmar, a striking teal and gold combo that i really like. This project will plod along in the background as im happy with my force as it stands and Primaris wont see anymore models for a while i imagine... I have no interest in painting more mini marines to bulk out the force as they look stupid along side them!

40K: Apostles of Contagion reinforcements

I'm still alive!!

Ive been on holiday for a bit with the horde and was snowed under with work but im back on it and recently finished filling out my completed Plague Marine squad and also these extra Poxwalkers:

Most of those marines were done in June but i filled out the squad to 10 men with the new easy build models and a few conversions hehe.

The poxwalkers are also easy build and im really tempted to pick up more to fill out a 20 man squad as the green plastic creates a great effect under white spray!
