Terrorgheist Scream

Painting progress – Black Knights, Terrorgheist & more

Here’s a little update of what I’m currently working on! With the end of February fast approaching, one or more of these is likely to be for Azazel’s ‘finish a legal unit’ March challenge.¬†That’s some good motivation. Black Knights: I’ve blocked in quite a few base colours on the Black Knights, leaving the metallic areas, belts, lances, and reins to do. These will be up … Continue reading Painting progress – Black Knights, Terrorgheist & more

Nagash Battletome

Review of Battletome: Legions of Nagash

This is a review from the perspective of a casual player, primarily looking to build armies for fun games with an understanding of how they might work in the narrative. After a first impression, I will look at the lore, and do a quick perspective on the rules. First impression: It’s a beautiful looking book with great front cover art. Nagash looms, menacing, at the … Continue reading Review of Battletome: Legions of Nagash

Skeletal Unit

Skeleton Warriors batch painting and AoS literature plan

Finished painting my first unit of Skeleton Warriors. They’re part of my new goal to complete a decent and varied selection of units for my Death army, before taking a bit of a break from painting this force. I’ve enjoyed painting everything so far, and want to come back fresh to the likes of Nefarata and the Terrorgheist. In this post I will talk briefly … Continue reading Skeleton Warriors batch painting and AoS literature plan

Mannfred von Carstein, Mortach of Night

‘It is more than natural laws he defies in this place [Nachtsreik], but the rules which govern even the darkest magic … He considers himself an artist in his way.’ – Queen¬†Neferata on Mannfred von Carstein. I’ve essentially finished painting Mannfred, inspired to tackle him first among the Mortachs by virtue of the labyrinthine hunt for this errant, ambitious and cunning ‘servant’ of Nagash which … Continue reading Mannfred von Carstein, Mortach of Night

Path to Glory Book

Path to Glory campaign at our local store

Our local Warhammer store is running a Path to Glory narrative campaign for Malign Portents. Neither of us has played many games lately, but we thought it’d be great to try this out without worrying about needing too many units or much list building. If we keep up with this (we’ll see!), there’re a few rounds to play over the next 10 weeks. Our first … Continue reading Path to Glory campaign at our local store

Mortach Mount Side

Mannfred, Mortach of Night – WIP

I’ve been working on my Mortach’s mount over the last couple of days. I’m pleased with how its turned out, although looking forward to see how this all works combined with a finished Mannfred soon. In addition to him, Neferata, Arkhan and their respective mount features are magnetised to allow me to change the rider easily. I’ve left the beast’s armour panels loose, but they … Continue reading Mannfred, Mortach of Night – WIP

Belisarius Cawl Red Side

Belisarius Cawl – WIP

This week I wanted to go further back to one of my most favourite models I’ve not talked about before – Belisarius Cawl. Archmagos Belisarius Cawl has always interested me. Not only was he an incredible model to build and paint, but his character itself is fascinating. He’s over 10,000 years old! What is that even about!? That’s not even the fascinating part, it’s his … Continue reading Belisarius Cawl – WIP
