Listbuilding for LVO!

Since I’m plotting out what I need to have painted for Las Vegas Open, I may as well share it out.

The way the Age of Sigmar tournament at LVO works is that you get a 2000pt army with a 500pt sideboard.

Here is my current list:

Almost there – Blood Warriors pt4

Making up for lost time. With decent football games on, I’ve been able to get some real work done.

I am at the final highlighting stage now. I need to do another coat of the red and highlight it, highlight the brass, and do the boots… so I am at the same place I left the last five warriors.

I am particularly happy with the skin on the arms of two of them. I am definitely improving there.

All five so far.

Close up on the arms. Did a little scarring on the one on the left.

All Blood Warriors in their various states. I’ll have to get them all on the same page.

Back in the Saddle – Blood Warriors Pt 2

Well, that was a delay, but I have a deadline to meet and wasting time is not the best idea. Got hit with a two pronged attack of discouragement and getting really sick. I don’t recommend either.

So. Back in the saddle, so started back on the Blood Warriors on my desk. The scheme is the same as last time: Gold drybrush, Leadbelcher layer and Khorne Red on the first five. I need a new pot of Khorne Red so I will stop there for now. Also: bases drybrushed with Mechanicum Standard Grey and washed with Nuln Oil. I want to get the bases done before I get too far ahead, mainly due to the skulls on the bases now.

More work tomorrow while watching football. It’s nice to be back.

Building Interlude

My second Starter Set arrived, so I spent some time getting those models together. The Leader models were mounted on cork to make for a bit more dynamic base, otherwise things are the same.

I’m going to get some Blood Warriors primed so I can start on the next batch tomorrow. Still sick, so I don’t want to get too carried away with painting.

Game Report! Ironjaws vs Khorne

Sorry for being so quiet, getting sick sucks and it really cut into my painting schedule.

In lieu, I got a quick AoS game in on Saturday versus my good buddy Nick’s Ironjawz. 1200 points.

The game lasted two turns. Ironjawz on the charge hurt. Who knew? Got absolutely flattened, a mess of Brutes broke through my Reavers like butter and jumped on all of my commanders.

Oh well, got some neat shots at least!

Blood Warriors – Mid-Highlighting

Woke up earlier this morning than expected, so I put some extra time in on the Blood Warriors before my game today.

Skin was touched up using the usual colours, and the red went from Khorne Red up to Evil Suns Scarlet. Skull grinder Brass was used liberally as well.

Highlights have been started, but I did not get too far. The brass highlighting always takes the longest.

Blood Warrior – Test Finish!

Test model is now complete! The Blood for the Blood God addresses some of the issues I had with the teeth axe hammer thing.

I realized while finishing the blood that I didn’t actually put any additional basing on these models! Still waiting for the resin skulls to come in, but hey these are starting box models.

The remaining four are currently soaking in wash and will be ready in about 40 minutes. Hooray!

Blood Warriors – Test Batch

Onto the next task!

These are the 5 Blood Warriors from the Age of Sigmar. You can tell a good starter model as it took me about 5 minutes to look through 15 BWs to pick out the starters.

I’ve basecoated 5 in Balthasar Gold and did the bases’ base coats, but only one got Khorne Red/Leadbelcher/Mournfang Brown/Zandri Dust coats. Black was touched up with Abaddon Black, and an Agrax Earthshade wash was applied to finish the basic base coat. There are other colours to do later on such as the skin, but the main ones are down now.

Not exactly a thrilling update, this one, but I am baby stepping through the first one.
