Slann Starmaster Reshoot

Hi all,

Painting Challenge Winner

Hi all.

Just a quick post to announce the winner of mine and Zebulon's Painting Challenge. This time around it was my Gaunt Summoner vs Zebulon's Endrinmaster. After a week of votes the results were 4 votes to my Gaunt Summoner and 1 vote to Zebulons's Endrinmaster.

So that makes my Gaunt Summoner the winner for this challenge.


I think a well done to both of us for two well painting models and a thankyou to those who voted and those who just came to have a look.

Thanks for having a read.

For Sigmar!: Retributors and Liberators

Hi all,

Today I bring a post on the first squad of Liberators and my squad of Retributors. Both of these are from the AoS starter set so the Retributor squad is only 3 strong. I have bought 2 extra Retributors off ebay to take them up to a 5 man unit however I hadn't done them at the time of writing this post. Both of the units were again painted up for my first ever game of AoS. Both units did fairly well if I remember correctly, with the Retributors coming on late but taking our Zebulon's Saurus riding Cold Ones who had butchered my Prosecutors and most of another Liberator squad.

Lets see some more pictures.






I'm happy with how they all turned out. It's a shame I hadn't managed to get my other 2 Retributors done along with these 3 but I'm sure if I follow the same video tutorial from warhammer tv they should match just fine. I really am finding the videos on warhammer tv very useful for painting the contents of the starter set and I'd highly recommend th…

For Sigmar!: Lord Relictor

Hi all.

So today I bring a post about my recently finished Lord Relictor for my Stormcast Eternals army. Seen as I'm collecting the Hammers of Sigmar the Lord Relictor is actually named as one Ionus Cryptborn. I got him painted up and finished before my first ever game of AoS a few weeks back which was against Zebulon and his Seraphon. I think Zebulon would agree this guy was a real pain for him. In my first turn he oblitorated 3 skinks with lightning before over the next two turns taking out the rest of the unit more or less single handed. More importantly I kept him near Vandus Hammerhand and healed him multiple times keeping him in the fight the whole game.

With that said on to some more pictures.






Overall I'm happy with how he turned out. I think the weakest area on him is probably his standard. I think the paint job there got a little rough in places there but nevermind. I just followed the excellent painting video on the warhammer tv youtube channel when it came to paint…

Blackmane vs Zebulon Painting Challenge: Challenge Paused

Hi all.

Just a quick update on the painting challenge. It was due to end tomorrow but in actual fact we've paused the challenge. Zebulon asked me earlier on this week if we could pause the challenge as due to longer than usual days at work for the last week or so he hasn't had time to even get started. So because of this I agreed to pausing the challenge until Zebulon has his free time back again as it seemsonly fair. 

Hopefully that won't be to long and we'll get a new end date set as soon as possible.

Thanks for bearing with us haha.

Blackmane vs Zebulon Painting Challenge!

Hi all.

Today marks the start of a new painitng challenge between myself (Blackmane) and Zebulon. As some of you may know from time to time we run a challenge where we pick a model (it might be one we both like, both want to try painting, both own, etc), set a time limit and get painting. The challenge this time is in a format we've only done once before in that we won't be painting the same model and we each picked the model the other will paint (link to the last one where we did an Empire General vs Wight King). 

The criteria were as follows:

An Age of Sigmar modelHad to have the HERO keywordUnder £20 in valueNo rule on model materialNo rule on specific factions/armies More after the jump.
