Re: From Chracia with Love (and a Hawkship)

He’s awesome Olthannon, the colours are spot on. Your photography leveled up too! Those shots are so vibrant, good job on those colors, they're incredibly striking! I particularly like the sword :) Btw at some point I needed tails for my horses too and I bought some from a UK-based seller of metal ...

Re: Azaam's journey to his full painted army

Great work Azaam! The bone colour of the armour is really cool. I think my favourite is the turquoise seaweed. The contrast makes that colour pop so beautifully. They will look great as a unit.

Re: From Chracia with Love (and a Hawkship)

I think I missed it but the round shields... are they from dwarf minis or somewhere else? Hi Nicanor, yeah they are from the old Dwarf sprue, can't remember which ones exactly. The round shield works great with the axe. It's a good find for the looks you're going for. I was just taking a look and I...

Re: From Chracia with Love (and a Hawkship)

Thanks for the kind words folks!

Quick update to show off my second reaver, the musician. Three more till this first unit is completed. I also gave the first one a shield.

Enjoy!

Re: From Chracia with Love (and a Hawkship)

Looks great. It's becoming an impressive force. I had the same realisation at some point. I was always painting individual units and it always felt like slow going. Until I put everything together. At some point I calculated the points of all the painted models I could field and I got somewhere ove...

Re: Warhammer: The Old World

I read an article recently (possibly BoLS?) that sounded about spot on. Won't get model previews till mid next year according to a leak. Stuff at the start will be more definitely Old World (dwarves, Bretonnians, Empire, Chaos etc) and then it won't be for a while before we start getting the more ou...

Re: From Chracia with Love (and a Hawkship)

It looks fine Olthannon but I’d have been tempted by red. Thankee kindly, yes I am also thinking either red or possibly a navy blue. I like him, and I agree that the axe is a nice touch. As for where to get greenstuff, there's a fair few online stores that have it. Ebay is a pretty good source for ...

Re: From Chracia with Love (and a Hawkship)

Hi everybody, Finished up one of my Ellyrian Reavers. Pretty happy with the result, I was thinking of going for a more colourful helmet plume but in the end I just kept it white. Of course with a Chracian army, I thought they would suit cavalry axes better than spears. Maybe somewhere down the line ...

Well, I figures when they said in that earlier article about it being 28mm and such, they said about wanting everyone to be able to use their old models. So I think there will be some releases, mainly of Empire and Bretonnians (?) but the lore will be there saying that other armies are there so go a...

Re: Warhammer: The Old World

I think perhaps not, but if you happened to see on the Border Princes map they released, right in the south corner there is a Scarab emblem, so that suggests some sneaky Tomb Kings.

Re: Fitzlock's High Elves - The Glittering Host of Avelorn

Good luck with those Dragon Princes, I never actually bought some myself back in the day but I quite like the look of these newer ones. Hadn't thought about the fragility of them but that sounds like a nightmare!

Re: From Chracia with Love (and a Hawkship)

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update with the other 3 spear elves.

Next up I'm going to put together an army shot finally to show off my Chracian warhost so far. Next on the paint station will be a mixture of my Ellyrian Reavers and some white lions too.

Cheers
