Hello!

Some of you might know of a little game called warhammer: age of sigmar, itis the successor of warhammer: fantasy battles. When Age of Sigmar (AoS) came out i didnt care because i didn’t play warhammer just 40k and the stormcast and new khorne units in the beginning of AoS where not what i wanted to collect. But later they released the Khatadron Overlords and man i loved those models, they where the type of high fantasy idea’s i like and ever since then i have been looking into the lore of AoS and i like it.
So then i┬ádecided i wanted to start an AoS army but i didn’t know what army i wanted to play so i just put it into the back of my mind until: Total War: Warhammer! To be exact the DLC where they released Skarsnik. For those who are not familiar with Skarsnik:
Skarsnik is a warhammer fantasy battle night goblin warboss and he has a giant squig as a pet also he wanted to be a ruler of a place called karak eight peaks in the old world, but that is about all i know about him. But Skarsnik is not the best part of the DLC to me it was that with Skarsnik you could have night goblin only armies in Total War: Warhammer. So that made me kinda wanna collect Night goblins but since Tomb Kings got canned and Night Goblins had not received new units in AoS i wanted to wait a little bit untill i saw what GW wanted to do with the night gobbos.
Then Malign portents got shown on and one of the 4 new models was a Night Goblin Shaman so i look into getting a night goblin army this had a few problems:
1. If i wanted a full unit of 20 bow man i had the have a lot of them have a bow pose i didn’t like or i had to get 3 boxes of goblins to create 1 full unit of bow gobbos and 2 full spear gobbo units.
2. the squig (hopper) models are old and mono pose.
3. There wheren’t any goblin warboss models on the GW site i liked.

But every problem has a solution and the solution to some of the former problems is: the Battle for Skull Pass box, this was a warhammer fantasy battle 5th edition starter set that has night goblins (with a few spider goblins) facing dwarfs. The set has goblin archer models so that fixes problem 1 and as leaders a goblin shaman and a goblin warboss with squig wich is my favorite goblin warboss model i have every seen so that fixes problem 3.
So of to eBay and other similar sites it is!
So about 1 week of looking online for the box set got me a guy on a dutch eBay like site that wanted to sell some battle for skull pass gobbos and it was really cheap so i bought it thinking i got my archers and spear goblins sorted now. well when i arrived it also included the warboss and the shaman from the bos set so that’s a win!
This coupled with a box of fanatic, night goblins, and the new shaman model i bought at my local GW got me:

-1 unit of 40 goblin archers
-2 units of 20 spear goblins
-1 goblin warboss
-1 goblin shaman
-1 goblin fungoid cave-shaman

Now some of the goblins from the battle of skull pass had square bases so i wanted to rebase all of the spear gobbos to round bases as they look cooler so here is a pic of before:

And after:

So some gobbos in the back have white striped on the base, these are strips of very thin platicard same as i used for the tomb king chariot. The platicard was used since those bases where 25mm slotta and these stripes covers the slot! You will also see this used on the fanatics in a later picture!

Then i tested my pain scheme wich is based on this Warhammer-Community post:

I am happy with how they came out since i have not painted a full model for over a year. They still need some more highlight and some parts and basing.
So here is a pic of the army as i have it now:

EDIT: i now see my shaman still has all the basing stuff for all the warlord on has base with putty so dont mind that as the squig is part of the cave shaman, the stalagmite is part of the warboss only the cauldron and the pot are part of his base they are just all on his base as i wanted to paint those bitz separate from the gobbos bases.

Some things i want to add are some more fanatics, cave squig and squig hoppers but the squigs need new models i think.

Anyway this was a long post about a project i have been wanting to start since October of 2016. Please leave feedback about this post cause i feel it might be a bit to long.
Anyway have a great day and i hopefully post again soon!

A little update!

Hello!

This 2nd post took longer to strat writing then i would have liked, but real life just didn’t give me anytime to work on anything.
Anyways last saterday i got to play in an apocolypse game at a friends house, if you want to read about it go i will write about it at the end of this blog post!

After the apocalypse i got to look at my friends bitzbox, wich was huge but i would expect that for somebady who has played since early 2nd edition 40k. I got some bitz from his i will be using soonish so you people hopefully see those at some point on my blog, but one thing i already used was a broken tomb kings chariot. The chariot base was split in 2 parts one of wich was bent and has a big cut in it.
So afther a little cutting, glueing and a little bit of plasticard i repaired it as best as i could here it is:



This is the beginning of a project i will show soonish and no it won’t be a tomb kings army for warhammer fantasy or age of sigmar.

Now for the Apocalypse battle!
The apocalypse was an awesome battle between: my Iron Warriors (4k points) and my friends World eaters (16k points) against 3 imperial players: 1 Smurf player (ultramarines), ad mech and guards with marines mixed in. Both sides had a reaver titan here is a pic i took from the strat of the game:

Sorry for the lower quality foto, but as you might be able to see the table is pretty full.

So now for my favorite part of the battle:
I set up here on the table (and a bit to the side of this foto):

As you can see the guard player has set up in a awesome building, so my own personal mission for the game was to siedge and capture this building!
To make this building useable in 40k games there where a few rules in this game:
1. All masurements for range are done on a flat plane so heigth does not matter (otherwise nobody almost nothing could hit the marines sipers in the higher buildings)
2. This massive building had a stare case (red doors) and a working lift inside (white doors) you can use the starcase to go up to 4 floots higher without movement costs if you are within 3 inces of the staircase or the lift to go to anyfloor you want for no movement costs if you are within 3 inces of the door.

The game started with me and my friends losing to go first and this was bad. And i mean bad as in the first shooting phase the imperial players killed our titan, it exploded and that explosion killed half of our own army before we could even use it haha.
We did bring it back at the start of our 2nd turn (the pic below) but it was to late…

So yeah we lost but it was still fun And most importantlly i had the most models in the massive building at the end of the game so i count that as an personal victory!

So hope to have a new post up around friday!
Have a good day people and if hope you enjoyed reading the weird blog post!

First!

Hello!

This is the first post on this blog!
So as you might have noticed this blog is pretty empty so lets start filling it with stuff!

Current projects:

-My iron warriors.
My iron warriors are my main 40k army i had quite a few models in this army before the release of the Burning of Prospero box set, but i have started to rebuild the army since.
The main focus for the IW at the moment is just building and painting enough i can can start playing some games with a fully painted army.
In the spirit of that i got this guy earlier this month for KrautScientist:

He is my Exalted champion and want to put him, a Dark Apostle and 8 Khorne
Berzerkers in a rhino as my CC/Warlord killer unit. I have already started on 1 Khorne Berzerker:

As you can see he is just a mkIII body with a normal Chaos Marine helmet and a Khorne Berserker chainaxe.
Now i just need to build 7 more Berserkers and paint them and the Exalted Champion.

-Necromunda.
I bought the new necromunda box set when it came out and i have build all the models in them. Then i played some games against my girlfriend and i found out i liked playing with the Eschers more than the goliaths, so i want to pain the 10 Escher gangers from the box set to use in friendly game until the Orlocks come out as that will be my main gang i think.

-Shadespire.
I have been playing quite a few games of Shadespire as it is relatively quickly and easy to pick up also because i am really digging it! The 2 warbands i own are the Sepulchral Guard and the Gerrek’s Reavers. I have already quickly painted the main skeleton from the Sepulchral Guard just need to finish the base:

As you can see it is not the most amazing painting every but its a simple and quick paint job that i am happy with. The other 6 skeletons are ready to be painted so i hope to finish them in the near future!

-Dungeons and Dragons.
I am going to be a DM for a DnD group of friends starting this sunday. It is just going to be a character creation session but since we have al planned the whole day for it it will probably also include a little bit of playing so i might make some simple terrain for it i might not, but i will make terrain for later sessions.
Just don’t expect very detailed terrain most of the terrain i make for DnD i just simple cardboard things for on the battlefield.
Also i might make characters for each of the player once i know what they are gonna play hahaas i can’t do that without knowing what they are gonna play haha.

 

So yeah that everything for this post i hope to have a new post soon!
In the meanwhile let me know what you guys think about the Bezerker i build!
