Stormcast Eternals: Part 2 - Decimators 1

And so here we are with the second real post showing my Stormcast offering.

I was intending to post up my Lord Relictor at this point as I was working on him and envisaged completing him before I completed these guys. It didn't turn out that way - there are still a few outstanding details on the Lord Relictor whilst these happy chappies are finished.

So here you go:

Stormcast Eternals: Part 1 - Prosecutors 1

The painting rota has rotated on a step and told me it's time to paint some Age of Sigmar models. As the Stormcast are slightly higher up my list than the Kharadron they get some attention first.

Stormcast seem to be fielded in quite small unit chunks so I'm doing a batch - their will be some Liberators, Decimators and a Lord Relictor to follow on from this post. Then probably a bit of W30K Death Guard and then back to AoS for some Kharadron.

Anyway, without further ado, here is the first "real" unit for my Stormcast Eternals:
The unit

Front - just one model

Rear - just one model

Dropzone Commander: UCM (Raven Gunships - Part 4)

I'll start by apologising for the crappy photos. I'm no photographer, but I can normally take a snap I'm happy with. Not so this time.

Anyway - more Hawk Wargames resin models and again - I found these frustrating to work with. They just don't want to fit together very well.

Saga: Vikings (Part 5a - Levies)

So, as many of you have no doubt already noticed, I'm "Subject to Stupidity".

In the last post I wrote for this project, I presented a unit of spear-wielding levies as being a unit for my Saga Vikings, only to have it pointed out that Vikings don't have spear-wielding levies in their army list.

So, this unit is a replacement for the previous one, who will get re-purposed into a Strathclyde Welsh army at some point.

Heresy Death Guard: Contemptor Dreadnought (DreadTober 2017 - Part 5. Finished)

Hi all.

Here is the - somewhat belatedly - finished product for my contribution to DreadTober 2017.

Life went to hell in a handbasket a few weeks ago when a family member was hospitalised. We had to make significant changes to our home and schedules in order to provide care for her. Wargaming, painting and modelling had to take a back seat.

Whilst we're still mired in the situation, I did manage to find a few minutes yesterday to photograph some of the models I'd been working on at the time so that I can upload something new to the blog instead of re-sharing finished projects from days of yore (that said I've got a few more of those to share so I'll drop one in from time to time).

Anyway, here is the finished product:

Dropzone Commander: UCM (Troops and Bears - Part 5)

The final set of troops and APCs for the UCM force I'm building.

Anyone who follows my blog will know that our family has had some upheaval due to illness recently and so what I'm sharing here are photos of models I actually finished a few weeks ago but never had time to photograph.

This set of Dropzone models is the final batch that I managed to complete before it all went wrong. I'll carry on and complete this army, but probably not until 2018. Stay tuned.

Dropzone Commander: UCM (Troops and Bears - Part 3)

Here you will find the second of two sets of three posts regarding my Dropzone Commander UCM Troops and Bear APCs.

Each post shows two units (one Bear and two Troop stands being one unit. I think. Still ploughing through the rules).

The Hawk Wargames plastics are definitely easier to work with than their resin counterparts. These are 10mm scale models - it's a nice scale to work in. I'm enjoying it.
