Ylthari's Guardians - TO DONE!Lets start with Ylthari, admittedly my least favourite, and still so, but she came good in the end. The tree sprite is cute, vines were defined and the dark wood is alright but her face didn't quite work for me and I couldn't quite get the detail I was after.Still, I'm far from disappointed, in fact I'm really quite pleased with the result as she was so far behind compared to the other 3 and I just couldn't see the vines working.Admittedly I haven't done much to them to make them 'work' but just the basic application of the highlights to the washed and glazed base coat has managed to lift it out of the realm of mediocrity. The Silver Birch bark markings on her wand/staff worked out nicely too.Horny Dude aka - Skhathael. What works - sword, [possibly] horns, hair and skin. What I'm dubious about is his bark loin cloth and his face. The horns are reminiscent of Silver Birch thanks to the bark splits but because they're obviously horns it's a little confusing - like p
Check out what I painted this week and take a look at upcoming projects.
After several weeks of delay, the Sylvaneth are finally here! Owen and I take the new, much-spoiled Battletome out for a spin against his Gitz in a 2000pt Matched Play game from GHB2019
In the short term, the Sylvaneth Battletome is difficult to fault. Whilst the army has a somewhat limited number of units, there are numerous options to personalise your armies and make them more individual. [...] The post Age of Sigmar: Sylvaneth Battletome – Review appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
Derek returns with his Sylvaneth to take on my Nighthaunts in Battle of the Pass!

Idea Last spring I got hooked on Age of Sigmar. I had previously been playing Orcs in Kings of War and wanted to pick a faction that had a bit more finesse and a tactical play style. Orcs are very much a run straight at the enemy and ‘smash better than they do’ army. I spent some time looking through the current factions in AoS and Sylvaneth looked like a good fit. I really liked the aesthetic of haunted forests and their gameplay utilized lots of magic and movement chicanery. Sylvaneth Wyldwoods, a faction specific terrain piece, are a central part of both of those mechanics. At the beginning of the game 1, 2 or 3 of these are placed on the table. Enemies can be damaged and impeded by them. Friendlies can get buffs from and teleport between them. Heroes can also summon additional wyldwoods. So a number of these terrain pieces are necessary to play. The games workshop kit looks pretty neat, but also comes with a $33 price tag attached to it. I looked at it and thought,’I can probably save a
Last weekend some stuff happened in Vegas and it happened to leak out, so here goes just a few of the things of interest to me.Games Workshop revealed the Sylvaneth Warband for Warhammer Underworlds. There's no telling when the models will actually be up for sale, but they do exist in studio form. I'm only mildly interested in the release, however. I was always more into Guerilla Elves rather than the Spirit Elves of the Wood Elves. People got to pick up some Monsterpocalypse monsters and buildings ahead of release schedule, like Zor-Raiden!He seems to be all-in on the melee front, and he makes his ninjas get to punch things and move away. What's not clear to me is if combined hit and runs get to move one model or all of them...The Shadow Sun Syndicate building adds more movement shenanigans to the ninjas, which is both fluffy and exciting. If Armodax is the closest thing I can get to a turtle at this point in Monsterpocalypse, I don't think I'm gonna care what it does. It just has to exi
Huy from HuyCon Wargaming brings the Skaven of Clan Pestilens to face my Sylvaneth in this 2000pt Matched Play game!
More work has been done AND the first game has taken place down in my new Game Room. All in all, great progress since the first post. This time last year is when I started packing up my gaming space in my last house in preparation to sell and move. It’s been a long road, but I finally feel like I’ve made it…somewhere. Game Time My brother was in town for Thanksgiving so that gave me some drive to get my gaming table up. My plan is to rebuild this table into a 9ft x 5ft setup to accommodate the same rough size of games but also allow for space for books, figures, drinks, etc. Organization A part of what I enjoy in gaming is organizing the things I collect, consider it an outlet for my obsessive side. I was able to finally organize all of my wargaming and RPG books in one place, as well as all of my dudesmen. New shelves filled Books all unpacked First Game! Lastly, the first official game was had in the Game Room. A quick game of Age of
For non polish visitors, I hasten to explain that Carnival of Blog's Minis is the initiative of polish miniatures bloggers.
