Re: Sturens Painting Log (updated July ‘21 – the 7 Year Update)

Anyway, great to get a proper sized game, and next time I'll have something painted to show, promise! Oops… I have done a good bit more work on my Phoenix Guard but they're in that chasm between "nearly done" and "done" which can be a long one, and I'm determined to wait until t...

Re: A New Blog

That is a proper retro army, looks fantastic! Only missing vintage goblin green around the bases :wink:

I love the desaturated green and the character you can get with those dark black lined shades!

Re: A new painting blog - Mangler Squigs COMPLETE

Love these! You’ve got a great painting style with all that contrast, and the old school checkerboard on the boss is super. That hot pink is inspired too!

Re: Sturens Painting Log (updated July ‘21 – the 7 Year Update)

A brief battle report from my 2000 points against a fun balanced Dwarf list. In the end I changed out the list above, dropped 10 Phoenix Guard and some Swordmasters to squeeze in a basic Archmage with a bound spell and the +1 power dice Jewel of Dusk. Made the list really magic heavy and troop light...

Yeah the challenge is probably numbers. Back in the day we had enough people it felt like a big thing without being so big as to be chaotic! And fantasy character models, at least for elves, are now collectors items on eBay :shock: I’ve got a list to have a work on for a game this weekend. It is suf...

Looks great: impressively smooth and clean painting, even the white in my opinion! Your blends aren’t too flashy, just really well executed and used exactly where needed. That head swap makes him look very menacing. Have to say that grass looks pretty healthy for being next to a big plume of magic f...

Thanks all! It was certainly a one sided battle: really he had nothing that could stop my dragon princes except great rolling on his bolt throwers. Once he gets a BSB for rerolls all will be well. I’m sure the dark elves will return with a vengeance, I’ve already seen a painted bolt thrower so he’s ...

Re: Warhammer: The Old World

Personally I’m more excited for models than anything else. The WHFB death has broken the link between GW rule releases and player preference, and with any luck that will continue. If the rules are good, people will play them, if not they’ll stick to 6th, 7th, 8th, T9A, KoW, or whatever else they’ve ...

Welcome back Sturen. :) Sounds like you're starting to get back in the swing. Interesting model, the way you've done the inside of the cloak gives a striking contrast. Thanks! I felt a little intimidated by all the open cloth areas so I thought bold colours, a simple freehand, and the fiery sword (...

I’m back! Drifted away with AoS and being a student, but now having been graduated and working for a couple of years, and especially locked down, I turned back to Warhammer! Turns out I’d sold almost everything except the elves, so a lot of the models above are gone. But there are enough elves to pa...

Thank you very much Nyeave! I love it! It is an awesome model, the GW single pose plastics are almost all great imo.

Your photography also blows mine out of the water ;)

A magnificent Wight King from Santa!

There's a lot of very interesting discussion and I must say Seredain you make some good points.

Yes and No representatives who were there said those were simply uncounted votes waiting on the No table.

Pretty strong No vote. However still a strong Yes vote, stronger than was expected when the referendum was agreed to I'm sure.

I think I would agree with this sentiment. When I think of EU "enlargement" I think countries like Turkey, their entry has been discussed since I was in the UK last in 2003, Serbia, and Moldova (?). In reality accepting Scotland into the EU really wouldn't be enlarging it's just another n...
