Quick WIP pic of my Warhammer Age of Sigmar Stormcast…

Quick WIP pic of my Warhammer Age of Sigmar Stormcast Eternals Lord Relictor. Armour done and base coats blocked in for most areas. I’ve left him in three pieces for ease of painting. Once the main figure is done, and some of the base work I can attach the scrolls to his back, then it’s onto the relic standard thing. I’m further along with this than I expected to be honest. So much so that I’ve got my Lord Celestant on Dracoth undercoated and have a couple of additional SC heroes sitting on sprues in front of me!

Crooked Dice Time Lost Heroes

Just a quickie. I painted up a few new releases for Crooked Dice recently. These are their Time Lost Heroes and feature a Flying Ace, Fortune Hunter, Time Traveller and Jet Pack Hero. I wasn’t initially sure what colours to paint the jet pack hero. All I knew was that it wasn’t to be painted blue so of course I kept thinking of blue. My next thought was to go with red but I thought it might end up looking a bit too much like another model I did a while back. Finally went out on a limb and picked a very 50’s comic book inspired colour scheme and it seemed to do the trick.

AoS Stormcast Eternals Liberators

Another post so quickly! Well I finished my fifth Stormcast Liberator yesterday which gives me a full, albeit small unit and I’m really chuffed to have actually got these done. I started the first model right before the new year and have been joking ever since that I might get the unit finished before this Christmas due to my rather slow personal output. Anyway, a few pics of the unit.

The bases are topped with flagstones made from plastic sheet. I wanted something that looked like it could be a ruined temple or a slightly fantastical city street so went with hexagonal paving slabs. Not an easy shape and sometimes I wonder why I had to make things so bloody awkward but I think it looks pretty good. I originally tried out the hex slabs on a couple of Melnibonean models I painted years ago so I still have the template I used. Couldn’t help thinking at times that the bases still looked a little lacking in some way but thankfully GW released new basing materials and they’re exactly what I needed. I’ve sparingly used the Barbed Bracken and just one skull but I’m sure I’ll use them more extensively on future models.

It’s been a bit of a learning curve working on these as previously I’d not touched any of GW’s current models. Whenever I begin work on a model that’s a different style to what I’m familiar with it can throw me a little and take a bit of time to get used to the sculpting and how best to paint it. Those first few Liberators came together quite slowly but the last two were a lot quicker and easier to work through. But, just as I get used to painting these they’re done and I’m ready to move onto slightly more challenging models. I have a Lord Relictor ready to start that I’m hoping isn’t as complex as it might seem and I also built a Lord Celestant on Dracoth which will be one hell of a job. I’ve a selection of other heroes that I’d like to work on as well before I delve back into painting additional troop types. Maybe I’ll get one or two things added before Christmas!

I was going to post this tomorrow but I’m all…

I was going to post this tomorrow but I’m all excited now so sod it! Finally finished my fifth Warhammer Age of Sigmar Stormcast Eternals Liberator giving me a full (small) unit. I think I started the first model right before the new year and my tongue in cheek threat of getting these done before this Christmas has come true! ­čśü

Originally I couldn’t help thinking the bases lacked something but the new Barbed Bracken basing materials have proved to be exactly what was needed. Even popped one of the new skulls in there too. Kept it pretty restrained but might use them more extensively on additional models.

Just a few months until the end of the year… I wonder if I can get this Lord Relictor that’s in my to do pile finished by then?
