Stormcast Eternals


Venturing into the Nightvault of Warhammer Underworlds

Nightvault landing on my doorstep sprang the initial question of “Where am I going to keep all these cards?!”. I remember the very same thought trawling through my mind when Shadespire appeared within my clutches. When the first season of Warhammer Underworlds landed, it relentlessly became my most-played game for months to come and brought with it untold enjoyment. Nightvault follows it including new warbands, new cards and the inclusion of magic to the game. Do these tarnish the refined formula that Shadespire ushered in? Or does it bring with it a new era of card-focused skirmish that my table will quickly be overwhelmed by? The answer to these questions are not as clear-cut as you’d might hope. There’s a number of factors to consider here. Whilst it’d take a sizeable chunk of time to go into detail for each of them I’ll summarise as best I can. The first key thing to acknowledge is that it’s impossible to fully bring judgement to Nightvault until all cards are re

On the painting table

So a few things that are being worked on at the moment. I am still, slowly, working through the Cellestar Ballista teams for the Stormcast Eternals. I really don’t like the detailed bases that they come with some I swapped them out for some plain bases. The Liberators in the picture aren’t new. I just decided to rebase them since they matched the Ironjaws I am also working on and that seemed like unnecessary duplication. The ballistas themselves also need new bases and I will have to purchase some. I am building an Attack Crawler for my Ghar Rebel army. The core of the model is complete but I still need to magnetize the weapon options on the front turret. Once that is done I will be priming it up. Mind you I could start painting the main chassis now. Also at work is the Isorian Senatex Command Squad. I am using the squad to figure out the colour scheme and basing that I want to use for the rest of the army. I will be posting a painting article about those models on the Gates of Antares Nexus in th

WIP: Stormcast Eternals Celestar Ballista

Just a quick snap from my painting desk today to share my current progress of my Celestar Ballista. The warmachine is finished and I'm about half way done on the crew. My Get a Grips are helping me a lot with these. It's weird how a new piece of equipment (wether it's brushes, paint, clippers or even a grip) can really motivate you to paint. I kinda get that feeling with new models. New models do motivate me to paint but theres a limit, as soon as it gets too much it has the opposite effect. One new model is fine, 100 is damn right scary. I think that's why I've enjoyed not buying the Soul Storm boxset and instead opted to buy the army in chunks of a few hundred points instead. Seems to be working out well and I'm on track to complete 1500pts soon. I can't wait to share the army shot.

Showcase: Stormcast Knight Incantor

I've added some magical might to my Stormcast army in the form of a Knight Incantor (above, left). In the pic above are all four of my characters from my force. Eagle eyed viewers would have noticed I've added a shield to my Lord Celestant on Dracoth. After the jump some close ups of my Knight Incantor.More after the jump
