The Astral Host.

Over the past couple of days i’ve been reading up on the lore for AoS and with the help of some people on the DakkaDakka forum i’ve managed to learn a fair bit.

The Seraphon (or Lizardmen) are essentially “good” Daemons in the AoS universe, vaguely existing in temple cities in the sky. The Slann are the only non Daemon type (hence they summon the rest of the troops into battle) For me, as someone who likes to build terrain focused around the themes of the armies I play this presents an interesting situation and prompts me to ask some questions:

Do the Seraphon have homes, cities outside of their “spaceships”?

That is to say, have the colonised the Mortal realms at all, I think the answer to this at the moment is a solid “no” sadly, which means Domestic terrain e.g. housing will have to take a backseat.

What can I build instead?

I think the safest bet is to focus any future efforts on scatter terrain. The mortal realms offer a vast myriad of biomes and the like for creating terrain, and not just your standard hill either. The realm of metal for example, could allow for alien looking worlds, blended with Gothic architecture (a free-guild settlement for example) Rivers of molten metal spring to mind, perhaps crystalline outcrops.

The Army

So, what will my daemon lizard army be consisting of? I need a Slann priest, that’s a certainty. As someone whose primary motivation is painting and creating rather than playing (for lack of opponents, to some extent) My preference is to create a force using a broad spectrum of the forces on offer, from Skink to Kroxigar.

Age of Sigmar

In the Spirit of updating this blog once every 3 years, I feel now is a good time to!

Like a chronic illness that rises above the parapet every now and then I’ve become endeared to starting a new army (I still own the ones from my post in 2014! crazy how time flies.) I’m thinking about Lizardmen…or “Seraphon” as they’re now known.

Realistically i’m not going to be able to play any time soon, but what the heck, I want to get back into the spirit of painting up stuff and making terrain again and the Lizardmen seem like a good excuse to do this. I’m also hoping I can do finish up some old designs i’d made for Aztec miniatures – which should crossover well with Lizardmen.

So far I’ve ordered, from china an OOP Skink chief, the model of which I always loved. It looked good in the pictures and was cheap so I don’t think i’ll be loosing too much. I think i’m going to go for a diverse collection and get the “start collecting box” for like £40, extremely good value when you consider the Dinosaur riding guy that comes with it costs that much on his own!

Hopefully if this plan comes to be i’ll have another post soon…if not see you in 2020!

A few things.

Right, an update, huzzah! 

I’ve been very, very busy I guess, both with work and Hobby.

Hobby wise i’ve been building lots of ruins etc. 

http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/601034.page an example can be seen here, Amongst other Models!

So here’s a breakdown of my current 40k stuff.

Imperial Guard 

-Vostroyan sqaud

-Basilisk

(watch this space)

Tyranids

– 3 warriors

– 12 termagants

-12 hormagaunts

-1 Carnifex 

Chaos Space marines

– 1 terminator lord

– 5 terminators

-2 rhinos

-1 predator

– 10 marines

– 10 cultists

-6 chosen

I’ve always got a new terrain project on the go, and will have examples of my work up very soon (going to create a new blog, for enquires about comissions etc.) and i’ll be selling some stuff on Ebay. 

I’m Very happy with how my Vostroyans are turning out, I think they’re great models. 

40k

Hey all, Over the past couple of months I’ve been painting a chaos space marine army, currently I’ve got

> 1 terminator lord
> 5 terminators
> 10 chaos marines
> 6 chosen
> 10 chaos cultists
> 2 chaos rhinos
> 1 chaos predator

I’ve painted everything up except 3 terminators and a rhino and predator

I’ll post some pictures when it’s all done, I’m very happy with them. I think I’ll do a Tyranid army next.

Update

I must say, it’s been a huge amount of time since I last posted, mostly because for a long time it had nothing to post about, however since the last post I’ve come a very long way in general, and am actually drawing up plans to start small terrain commissions.

I quite enjoyed doing guides, like I did in the past and I certainly think that I’ll do more in the near future. No photos this time (as they’re all located elsewhere) but next post I’ll get some up.

An update of sorts..

Have been busy making an Aztec village and painting up my minis (have 25 Aztec now) only got access to a decent camera not to long ago..  here’s where most of my stuff has been documented as of late http://www.warlordgames.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=5005&start=10 Below is an Aztec temple i’ve been working on, it’s made entirely of blue foam and has a plasticard base, was very fun and relatively easy to make (just lots of drying time) i’ll be uploading an aztec house tutorial when i have some extra time (next week probably)  enjoy this for now though 😛
