Age of Sigmar – I don’t typically get a tone of Age of Sigmar models on my painting table but when I do they are quite fun to paint. Rebranding and reimagining the Fantasy line was probably one of the best things Games Workshop could do. Not being tied to the Old World any longer each new faction they release is dynamic and unique to their IP. With Warhammer 40,000 Space Marines have been the iconic unit since it’s inception, Warhammer Fantasy didn’t really have anything that wasn’t tied to generic fantasyRead More
Age of Sigmar – The Chaos Daemon range has been in dire need of some new plastic kits for quite some time. Luckily for Khorne and Slaanesh players Games Workshop delivered with some gorgeous new plastic kits.Read More
Age of Sigmar – Silver Tower was the first set in the re-release of Warhammer Quest, I never played but my gaming group was pretty excited about the release. Unfortunately with the plethora of box sets and reimagined games Games Workshop has put out in the last few years it’s hard to make time to play everything.Read More
Age of Sigmar – Along with the warbands I’ve been painting for Warhammer Underworlds my client sent over a few characters for his Age of Sigmar armies. It looks like I’ll be painting a significant number of fantasy models over the next few moths which is great because I find the models very cool even though I don’t play the game. One of the benefits to doing commission work is getting to paint cool stuff that you don’t actually want to own.
This batch has two Chaos characters and a Necromancer, eventually I believe I’ll be painting rest of the armies that go with these characters.
Age of Sigmar – Khorne is always cooler in a world without guns. Rushing in a meeting your enemy with a giant axe while screaming like a maniac isn’t for everyone. But is you worship the Blood God well it’s a way of life. As with all the Underworld warbands these are really great sculpts. Bulked up and dynamically posed these guys just drip flavor (and blood I suppose).Read More
Age of Sigmar – Barbarians at the gate, well rather Chaos Marauders reimagined into something cool. The old marauder kit is just plain ridiculous at this point. One can only hope that the Underworlds warbands are a test bed for a new direction on some of the old fantasy lines from Games Workshop.
This was a fun set to paint up, I opted to keep them relatively brown monotone as that’s the first thing I think of when I picture a barbarian.
Warhammer 40,000 – One of the most daunting things about starting this hobby is having to put together your models. (Painting is a close second, since before you can do that you need to put them together.) This is especially true for newer players that are interested in the social and tactical aspects of tabletop gaming but come from a background of video or board games where everything is ready to go right out of the box. A large percentage of these newer gamers don't have an interest in the hobby aspect of the game (yet, it will come with time) so paying to have these parts taken care of makes sense for them.Read More
