For The Blood God

Hey Everyone,

With the new Age of Sigmar warhammer set getting more and more populair I could not avoid getting one or two myself. I even got me a few more kits to flesh out my brand new idea. I am building myself a Khorne Bloodbound warband.

My local Games Workshop is hosting a campaign and for me that felt like the perfect excuse to put them on the table and cause some trouble. The campaign is starting today and I made a start on my warband already.

I felt that I had to add something fun to have a warband that won't be like all the other people that play Khorne warbands right now. So I added a Spawn to mine. I will just show you some pictures of the things that I managed to finish so far.

This is the champion of the Skullreapers and because the campaign requires us to name all our units I named my Skullreapers "The Crimson Harbringers".

These are the first two Blood Reavers (I named their unit the Doom Screamers sightly hinting towards Dothraki screamers) and My Spawn Buttons. 

 And Spawn Buttons

I hope you like them and will tell me what you think.

Slaughterer's Call

Hey everyone,

He has been done for a while but I forgot to take pictures earlier but I finished my Doombull. Also the model is very hard to capture on camera because of it's pose. I still love him though.

I present you: Grimtorn Blacktusk

He will lead my Brayherd to war.

Next week I am starting another warband. A very cool one, so stay tuned.

Hooves Sounding in the Distance

Hey everyone,

I finished the Wargor Battle Standard Bearer over the weekend.

So I am making a bit more progress on the Beastmen. I have tried to match my warband to the contents of the starterset warbands. Just to get things going. Later on I can just add cool things per kit at a time.

I hope you like him and will tell me what you think.

The Dawn of a New Age.

Hey Everyone,

Today I wanna talk about something else for a change. And I didn't really feel like getting into the whole subject before because it just gets me frustrated but today I saw somebody burn their miniatures on youtube and trying to hurt a new community for liking something he doesn't. I think it is childish to want to do that but I don't understand the logic.

What I am talking about is Warhammer Age of Sigmar.

A lot of people are not happy with it and I simply don't get it. The last time I've seen people go this bezerk on the internet about a game was when.... yes unbelievably so, 8th edition warhammer fantasy was released. Now I personally am excited because I haven't played WHFB in a long time. When 8th edition was released a lot of my former gaming group quit the game and I slowly moved to 40k. I enjoy 40k because my models get to be seen. They are not hidden behind each other and they get to have their own cool things. (Thats just one of the reasons though)

I like Age of Sigmar because I think people want to play a game where miniatures they think are cool can be used. And I think Age of Sigmar does exactly that. It let's you play what you like. No fuss, just cool mini's with fun rules No pages and pages of extra rules and special this and that, just a simple 4 pages set up and some individual stuff per unit.

You want your guys to be great heroes or worthy troops or guards to your heroes. You don't want to die and not care about it. You want to see them do epic things and take out big monsters.
They couldn't before but now they can. That is at least what I think. I could go on and on about the narrative possibilities but I won't. Most of you will most likely have allready scrolled on down towards the pictures.

I guess this is just me getting tired of all the negative Nellies out there. I know my insights aren't that deep or grand but I would say I am a gamer and story teller at heart. I love being creative and making great things. That is why I have decided to pick up my old models again and want to give them new life. And what better place to show you my hard work than here.

I'll start with a cool Beastmen warband and later on I will do a great Khorne warband.
These are the first of my Beastmen models that I have rebased. The units are not yet finished but just to show you already:

Dynamic Duo of Destruction

Hey everyone,

I haven't been sitting idle and made some more progress on my orks.
I would like to introduce to you all:
Mekboy Geargob and his little grot buddy, Rench.

These two are there to repair my walkers but they likely cause more trouble than they do right.

I also manged to assemble Boss Snikrot. (yes I'm doing kommandos).

I hope you like them and will tell me what you think.

Shine for Ultramar

Hey everyone,

I am a bit later with my update than I had hoped. But the last couple of days here have been so warm that I couldnt get myself to paint all that much. I did manage to create 1 of 2 new sergeants for my ultramarines. I know the current ones are fine but I saw this somewhere and it looked a lot more dashing than I would have imagined. So I went for it and here he is.

I hope you like him!
