Yes! After many many months of saving cash, painting commissions and selling off older projects i am finally able to start up a true hobby dream; A full army of Forgeworld's Legion of Azgorh Chaos Dwarves!
I've been amassing them slowly over time and now with a deadline for a mates stag weekend of gaming at Warhammer World i have the time and impetus to get them table ready. Im building at painting this army in manageable chunks and this is what i have completed so far:
30 Infernal Guard Ironsworn
Infernal Guard Castellan
I figured i would start with the biggest unit in the force, the 30 Ironsworn, and then use the spare champion model from the command pack as a Castellan.
Next up will be a couple more heroes with a Bull Centaur Taur'uk (My General) and a Daemonsmith wizard.
I picked up three more Berzerkers after a mate said he was going to do a forgeworld order hehe, this takes me to twelve which is a good number to stop at! I have also added the Keeper of the Dungeons from the Dol Guldur list as a mid level hero... in between god level Azog/Bolg and the mediocre Captains:
This puts me at a tasty 1600pts of Legion painted up now... hopefully the War Bats and Catapult Troll will be a long soon! I am tempted to pick up the Necromancer and some Ringwraiths and use the force as a Dol Guldur one for a bit too.
So this project started on a whim, i saw the Goblin Town stuff from the old box set going cheap with a few mins to go on eBay so thought sod it, lets give it a cheeky bid and bam i won it haha, that gave me about 350pts for £15! I knew this would be a silly little game force so saw another box of the warriors that i could source quickly and they arrived the next day:
These only took a couple of hours to do so all going well i can field a fully painted Goblin Town force for my 500pt game on Wednesday :-D
You can tell that the kids of Britain are back to school with the lack of painting updates this week because of increased traffic making my days longer haha
I had these two on release back in 1994, and have had them again a few times over the years... now the previewed Beasts of Chaos Battletome is threatening to draw me in again!!!
I have a way of undercoating a lot of models that im really happy with now, using two different brown sprays to create a nice contrast... i use it on all the He-Man models too, and it would certainly speed up painting a force of these hmmmm
