Warhammer Fantasy, finally some progress, and what's going on this weekend...

I know it's been awhile, but between work, family, holidays, Skyrim (damn that game) and so on, things have been quite hectic.

I have however, been hard at work on my new Warriors of Chaos army. My first unit of 20 Marauders is fully assembled and primed, and some even have paint on them!

Below you can see a "WIP" of my first unit

You can see that I only have the first rank with paint, and I have yet to add shields to many of the models, but I think it gives you a good idea of how the unit will look and the feel I am trying to get across for the whole army.

Above we have the first two models I built for this army, truthfully the paint scheme while simple, is quite effective, and I should have no trouble maintaining this level of quality throughout the whole project.

Below is a close up shot of the unit Standard bearer, the Marauder to his left (your right on the screen is not yet finished, I still need to add another highlight to the reds, and the horns of his helmet

He has since been completed. I have recently started work on a unit of 10 Marauder Horsemen, the horses have been assembled and cleaned, and I gave them a coat of "Army Painter" Leather Brown, I have just finished the bases, and they are awaiting a coat of Krylon black as I type. Hopefully I will get an update with some more WIP pictures up this weekend.

Speaking of this Weekend,

Saturday night I will be heading to Jester's Playhouse where Rich is going to be running a Realms of Chaos Campaign.
Entry is FREE as are the models that we get to build, and keep when we roll up our Warbands!
So, if you love Chaos and you like Warhammer Skirmish type games then come to Jesters on Saturday night, I think things are starting around 7:00pm

Then on Sunday I will be at AetherStorm Gaming, working on my Fantasy army and helping some folks with their painting. So, if you are looking for an excuse to paint some models, then stop by for some good conversation over a paint brush and a cup of coffee. I'll be there around noon.

  1. I absolutely love the look you are going for and very, very good job so far! I really do not like the current incarnations of GW Chaos, the old Realms of Chaos books were/are dripping with theme and feel. Seems GW has gone away from that recently and everything is giant monsters and OTT Magic.

    Keep updates coming!
