Cursed City: Vargskyr

Hi all

Completed this little blighter. 

I followed the guide on Warhammer TV

The fur was fun to paint. 

I found that I had to use liquid Greenstuff first to get rid of some gaps. 

Onto the characters now!

Cursed City: Vyrkos Blood-born

Hi all

Finished the Vyrkos Blood-born now. 
For these I started with an undercoat of Wraithbone . I then painted the skin with a mix of Lahmian and Cadian Fleshtone. 

Fur was Dryad Bark, drybrushed with Gorath Brown, inked and then drybrushed again. 

I made an shade of Lahmian and Dryad Bark for the lower legs. 

Armour was Warplock bronze, Runelord Brass, Agrax Earthshade wash, little bit of Nihilakh Oxide, into the recesses, then a further edge highlight drybrush of Runelord Brass.

Cursed City: Dire Bats

Hi all. 

Here are our Dire Bats for your perusal. 

We followed the Games Workshop painting guide for these. 

Basecoat black, Drumybrushed with Corvus Black, then a light Dawnstone. 

The body was done with a Volupus pink, as was the pinion bones. 
The face was then done with Cadian Fleshtone washed with a Reikland Fleshshade. 

Next you will see our Corpse Rats

Cursed City: Kosargi Nightguard

Hi all

2 of my favourite models from Cursed city, The Kosargi Nightguard. 

For the flesh I did Wraithbone, washed with Reikland Fleshshade followed by Athonian Camoshade. 

Shoulder pads were Runelord Brass, Agrax Earthshade, Nihilakh Oxide, then a drybrush of Runelord Brass. 

Robes and cloak were Gal Vorbak, layered up with 1:1 GalVorbak/Word Bearer, followed by a further Word Bearer red edge highlight. 

I did the axe with Leadbelcher, followed by a wash of Nuln oil, then drybrushed on some Typhus corrosion mixed with a bit of Ryza rust. Then drybrushed a bit more Leadbelcher, with a final sponging of Blood for the blood god. 

Thanks for reading.

Broken Realms: Be’lakor

Hi all. 

Got our paws on a review copy of Be’lakor.

So firstly, the model is beautiful. The last one still stands up well in my opinion, so this had some serious shoes to fill. 

The book is about Be’lakor’s play for power in the realms. “The mortal realms are consumed by the flames of war as allies are turned against one another and old grudges spill over into open conflict. Seeking to take advantage of this anarchy is Be’lakor, first of the Daemon princes. The dark master has sworn to seize his rightful place as the foremost champion of Chaos, and to do so he plans to unleash a horror of unimaginable scale upon the unsuspecting realms.”

The book sees armies of Chaos, Nightgaunt, Kharadron Overlords, Seraphon, Disciples of Tzeentch, Fyreslayers and Stormcast Eternals pitched against one another. There are updated rules and Warscroll Battalions. 

Love this temple architecture. Hope to see more like this!

There are 3 new Realms of Battle including Dolorum, Shyish and Prosperis, Chamon  

Battletome updates for all of the armies arrayed. 

And 6 new Battlplans. 

Lauren and I will be having a go with the 2x Battlaions in the coming months :)

Another great Campaign book for AoS.

Cursed City: Ulfenwatch

Hi all

So I have finished my Ulfenwatch.

So I undercoated them black. 
The Armour is Drybrushed up with Lupercal Green, followed by semi edge / chipping highlighting of 1:1 Lupercal green and Dawnstone. 

Shield is simply Runelord Brass, followed by a agrax earthshade wash, then a thin wash of Nihilakh Oxide, with a further sporadic agrax Earthshade wash with a light drybrush of Runelord Brass again. 

Robes and cloak were Gal Vorbak, layered up with 1:1 GalVorbak/Word Bearer, followed by a further Word Bearer red edge highlight. 

Great models to paint and assemble.

Adeptus Titanicus: Loyalist Legios

Hi all 

Adeptus Titanicus: Loyalist Legios go on sale today!

So this thick book is a good compendium for the released Loyalist Legios (and Legio Metalica) to date. Procon Vi have also made the book. 

The best thing about the book is all of the extra background fluff which is included. It actually starts fleshing out the Legios, something which I thought was distinctly lacking in the previous books. 

It also states the Legio’s current Materiel and what they specialise in (much like the Ol’ black books of the Horus Heresy series). 

Nemesis, Carnivore, Rapier, Jackal, Apocalypse, Imperator have all been mentioned too. So I am hoping we will be seeing more of these in the future. 
It also once again mentions Legio Destructor as being the biggest Loyalist Legio

I do get the feeling this is possibly book one of at least a couple for each faction, as both Victorum and Destructor are still not on the scene. 

Procon Vi are stunning. The colours are subtle but absolutely great. 

The Warmaster is also very prevalent in the book which is great, and there are 2 pages of fluff about it. 

And it does look Damn sexy in Gryphonicus colours!

Order the book today!

Cursed City: 2x games in

Hi all

I have managed to have two games and a tutorialso far of this great game. We played the Tutorials first and these were very simple. Really helped us understand the game quickly. 

The first proper mission (a hunt) was next. Lauren and I played it for 4 hours as we got used to the rules. We managed to win as the hostiles level was 0 (as we were beginners).  It was good fighting some of the bosses, and the game has a slight Zombicide feel to it which is good. 

I then played my second game with my 6 year old this morning. He really grasped the rules quickly and it held his attention for the whole 2 hours (he is normally quite fidgety lol). 

Really enjoying the game so far and can imagine getting all the expansions too!
