I iz Famous

Got my electronic copy of Kings of War rulebook with my name in the back of it today as part of my Kickstarter pledge. Can't wait for hardback copy.

 Very cool.

I also forgot to mention I ordered a T-shirt which should come next month with my Orcs.

I have to say I'm very impressed with the PR of Mantic. They're keeping the community updated pretty well.

As to the book. It looks nice and simple with all the rules for the game and army lists in one book. Can't wait to see the expansion next year with 3+ new armies.

I need two of everything...hmmm


GW Daemons wave being released next month.

Release schedule below...

zomg... I'll take two of everything plastic.

Though am holding my breath to see whether blue scribes are worth taking, because the finecrap herald of tzeentch sucked badly. It's up there with pumbagor, grail pilgrims and the snake neck on the chimera.

..and probably the plastic bray shaman as well, because I don't like any of the current bray shaman.

Chariot of Slaanesh

Onto my 3rd lot of Daemonettes in progress and Chariot, doing 6 at a time and touching up the previous sets as I go. I've got about 18 more to do after this, also included the reaper mini Vandorendra as my herald of slaaneshi on foot.

The Chariot is the old Chaos warriors chariot. The horses on the original were naff and the Chaos Warriors so-so, I think this is a much prettier use for them. It's a daemon smiley face chariot. I've also just got a normal champion Daemonette as Herald riding the Chariot.
The Seekers are done except for their tongues, haven't decided on the colour and the chariot is still wip.

From left to right, Daemonette command group, the Masque, Herald of Slaaneshi (Vandorendra), and plain Daemonette.

Kairos and Herald of Nurgle: Another update

So I got some more time with my painting tonight, and my Kairos and Herald of Nurgle got some luvvin'.

still very much WIP, but he's mounted on his swirly pillar of flame and he's gonna look awesome.

...and the Herald of Nurgle, He's gonna fit right in with my Nurgle contingent nicely.

Not Quite done yet, but almost.

First Daemonettes and Zombie Dragon

 So a bit of an update, Started the colour scheme and have 6 daemonettes almost finished. Liking them a lot. Arms keep falling off a fair bit for some reason.

Assembled Fern's Zombie Dragon, definitely is a paint as you go miniature. Although the miniature wording maybe wanting as it's about 6 inches tall.

A couple of pics of armies that I need to get around to.

Beastmen: 2 units of 25+ Gors, 30+ Ungors, 10 Ungor Raiders, Jabberslythe (Reaper Jabberwocky), 2 little GW baby jabberwockies (counts as Spawn) another 6 spawn, a converted Ghorgon and a few characters (Morghur, Khazrak and Malagor). Also there is 10 unassembled Bestigors. The plan is to buy another 2 battalions, find some proxy razorgors, a Minotaur bus (you herd me, haha) and 2 Chariots.

Chaos Warriors: this is gonna be a big army with a lot of marauders, but I'm gonna wait for October when the new Chaos Army book is out. Hopefully I'll be finished my Daemons by then.

....And the next big project will be to build 1 or 2 more cabinets to fit our minis as this one is overflowing. My dad built it for my 21st over 10 years ago. Yep it's filled to overflowing.  From top to bottom

7th Shelf(top): Slaaneshi (currently on painting table), Nurgle, and Khorne Daemons,
6th Shelf: Miscellaneous, some Warmachine Cygnar, Mordheim sisters, Necromunda Escher, a few monsters, some Chronopia, Confrontation Ragnarok, and other bits.
5th Shelf: Bretonnians
4th Shelf: Tzeentch Daemons, 4 seperate editions of daemons.
3rd Shelf: some of Fern's Vampire Counts
2n Shelf: My High Elves and Fern's Goblin army
1st Shelf(bottom); My Beastmen and Chaos Warrior armies.
Not much spare space...

Yep... need more room as I have Dark Eldar

...and dreadfleet to add,

...also need to split a few shelves for armies

... and Fern has her Skaven.

...oh and my Kings of War Orcs.

...oh and my 40k LATD (Lost and the damned) Beastmen.

...then there is the Kids' armies.
