Re: Ulthuan Rallies for War

Yeah, I think the biggest problem I had (that I didn't really solve) was how to hold it for painting lol I started with just holding it in my hand, but I have fairly oily skin, so I wore off some of the Chaos Black basecoat on the bottom. I tried just laying it on my cutting mat, but that moved arou...

Re: Ulthuan Rallies for War

Since I'm going to be participating in the Warhammer Fantasy Battle/ The Old World Discord army painting challenge, I've set aside my Skaven until July. In the meantime, I've magnetized and starting working on this Frostheart Phoenix. I've got a lot of snowflakes to finish on the top surface, along ...

Re: Ulthuan Rallies for War

I've done a couple of test models to figure out how I want to do the traditional High Elf "fans" on their armor and uniforms. Once again, regretting leaving these little details all for the end. Along with the eyes and gems, this is going to be slow going, but at least they're starting fro...

Re: Ulthuan Rallies for War

Done with the characters for the set, now I just have 20 more clanrats and the two weapons teams and I'll have a fully painted Island of Blood skaven set ready for battle!

Re: Ulthuan Rallies for War

And some of my favorite models in the entire Island of Blood set, the Rat Ogres. I really wish there were a third model with this sculpt style so they wouldn't look so repetitive if you want to do units bigger than 2 ogres.

Re: Ulthuan Rallies for War

Thanks, the definition is all thanks to liberal washes of Agrax Earthshade. I painted these with a speed paint technique so I can do their massive rat blocks in a reasonable time. So very different than painting High Elves. The shield in the back definitely looks grey in that photo, but it is indeed...

Re: Ulthuan Rallies for War

I'm in the process of painting up the Skaven half of an Island of Blood set so I can hopefully rope my partner into playing Warhammer since it's been difficult to find consistent opponents. But yesterday I took a break from those to paint up a model that's been primed and sitting on my desk for way ...

Re: Ulthuan Rallies for War

I've been using The Troll Trader, but recently, they've started listing things for eBay prices, which is really disappointing, but not surprising. I really hope The Old World brings back some of the newer High Elf plastics like White Lions, and Lothern Skycutters.

Thanks SpellArcher, I appreciate it. She'll have to do unless I manage to find an original that isn't an arm and a leg. I'll never know what possessed GW to make Finecast in the first place.

It's proven to be a lot more difficult to find opponents in the Seattle area of Washington state, so I've gone back to painting some models/units I've got assembled and sitting around in my display case. I've also been slowly working on adding eyes and finishing up gems on units that are painted, bu...

Re: Ulthuan Rallies for War

I think I remember reading that on a PDF. I feel like there's another similar scenario where the defenders are set to a certain amount of points and the attackers just keep coming. I think the win condition for the defenders is to have at least one single surviving unit on the table by turn 6? It co...

Re: Ulthuan Rallies for War

I agree with the others. It's a great looking army indeed. If you ever do get that 6k points battle played let us know; it will look epic! I don't think min-core will matter all that much at that points level. I think the game probably breaks as a tactical game above 3.5k or 4k points anyway and it...

Did you consider adding a phoenix Tyrren?
I actually have a phoenix assembled, and partially primed, but I need to magnetize it so I can field it as a regular Frostheart, or Caradryan on Ashtari. Maybe once I get back to it, that'll be the model I start with.

Like stated a few posts back, I'm taking a bit of a breather for the end of the year and for the foreseeable future. It's been a year and a half of collecting, assembling, and painting and I can say I'm very happy with my current collection. There's still so much to be done, so many eyes left unpain...
