Preparing for Legions of Nagash – painting progress

I’m excited about the forthcoming Battletome: Legions of Nagash! We know that it will cover 6 allegiances, with 4 completely new ones called the Grand Host of Nagash, Legion of Blood, Legion of Sacrament and Legion of Shadows. These overall force names seem much better than the generic sounding Deathrattle for example, and will hopefully enable us to build a thematic force without having to cross … Continue reading Preparing for Legions of Nagash – painting progress

Vampire Lord vs Nurgling 2

Vampire Lord Casim – Nurgling trouble

Casim, ‘The Binder’ – Continuing to be motivated by Malign Portents and with the promise of a game at the local store on Friday, my resin vampire and scenic base jumped the paint queue. This older sculpt is still quite nice, if perhaps a little different in terms of art direction compared to my newer Death miniatures. While a little chunky in places, it does have … Continue reading Vampire Lord Casim – Nurgling trouble

Nurgle vs Death Objective Marker

Death vs. Nurgle objective marker

Feeling generally inspired by Malign Portents, I threw together this thematic objective marker. Specifically, I was thinking about alluding to a brief section of a short story – The Cycle Interrupted – told from the point of view of Horticulous Slimux, servant of Nurgle: ‘He [Horticulous] took a greenclay urn from Mulch’s shell, the one containing his most prized plague flies, and cracked it open with his … Continue reading Death vs. Nurgle objective marker

Happy New Year – quick 2017 review

Happy New Year!! Last year was pretty crazy for me. The effects of my concussion lasted for longer than expected and it meant, even when I was feeling better, painting or building were low on the list of priorities. Then I got married in November! But I’ve been keeping up with releases, various media and have started painting again with some time off over Christmas. … Continue reading Happy New Year – quick 2017 review

Necromancer & Wight King progress – The Gate Builder’s Host

Finished my first Death characters last week! Initially, I’d gone for an Incubi Darkness base for the main non-armour colour, but felt it didn’t give the models enough impact, so switched over to a richer purple. The Wight King’s sword (the side visible in the photo) could also use a bit more shading. I’ve also been trying to work on a bit of narrative for … Continue reading Necromancer & Wight King progress – The Gate Builder’s Host

Lord of Undeath book review

Lord of Undeath by C L Werner (2016) It’s been a while since I sat down to read a full novel – Warhammer related, or otherwise. But I had a lot of questions about the nature of the Death faction and its various elements in Age of Sigmar; questions that needed some answers before I could think about how to give my Death forces some background. So … Continue reading Lord of Undeath book review

Grand Alliance: Death project

I’m still committed to painting my Ironjawz first – the Warchanter has orange base layers down – but I’ve decided to begin a Death army as well. Always liked the dark theme and style of the Vampire Counts range! Of the options in Age of Sigmar, though, I think Deathrattle (+) suits what I’m looking for and promises to provide an interesting playstyle. My current force comprises: Mortach (magnetised – Arkhan/Mannfred/Neferata) Cairn Wraith Wight King Necromancer … Continue reading Grand Alliance: Death project
