Godtear: Rhodri Ironheart & The Household Guard

Yes Godtear! My models arrived during the week and having spent much of my free time constructing them and all the dice & tokens it was finally time to start painting!

I picked Rhodri and his followers as my first unit to paint, i had a simple scheme in mind for them and was itching to get my teeth into this project:


Rhodri Ironheart, Thane of the Forsaken Hold


The Household Guard



The models were supplied with round bases; 40/50mm for the Champions & Golem, and 25mm for the followers, but given that the game is played on a hex mat it seemed appropriate to base them on hexes; 50mm for Champs & Golem, and 25mm for followers.

The whole kit has been built, undercoated and shading washed so its ready to go!

Age of Sigmar: Knight of Shrouds

More Nighthaunt! The Knight of Shrouds is a great new addition to my Nighthaunt army:






The first Nighthaunt hero with a command ability (And a good one at that!) means hes going straight into my lists hehe.

Legions of Nagash is also out now and ive had a bit of time to digest it.... The short of it is whilst most of my warscolls have had a boost with improved or increased mortal wound output, i cant use any off the Legion abilities unless i add some regular "Death" battleline models such as skeletons or dire wolves etc, and this will dramatically change how he ary works but will make it masses more survivable with a billion dice of regen hahaha

Age of Sigmar: Crypt Flayers finished

This has been my worst week for work in a very long time, and its not going to get better till near the end of February! I think it will be one post, maybe two, per week at best till then d'oh!





These three finish up my Crypt Flayers unit, but having seen the Daughters of Khaine previews and the fact that the leaked Death Warscolls show the Necromancer no longer working effectively with the Flesheaters i will be shelving this project and selling it on.

Happy New Years: 2018 Pledge

Well happy new years everyone, we crashed out about 10pm but next doors fireworks got us up again to see the clock roll over haha.

In 2017 i painted a total of 802 models, down from 2016 but still a mighty haul, ranging from three warmaster armies to walking dead, guildball teams and a 40k space wolf army! I wonder what this year will have in store for me?

My three resolutions from last January were:

1) Fully painted Mechanicum 30K
2) Fully painted Disciples of Tzeentch
3) Play more Guildball

How did i do?

1) Mechanicum were fully painted at around 3000pts before i sold them on, i didnt get on with them in the game doh.
2) Sold my Tzeentch before i painted a thing haha, really didnt get on with the playstyle and Khorne were released shortly after!
3) I started strong, played 10/15 games by march but not much more since doh.


This year im going to try something different, rather than go for specific projects i plan to reduce my lead and plastic mountain by at least half! Ive gone through every unpainted model i own and i believe the pile to sit at 676 models! I know there will be new purchases and sell offs over the year but i want to reduce my December pile down to a much more manageable level.
