Age of Sigmar Tale of Gamers - Month 1

For my first month's purchase I am adding the Sepulchral Guard! This is one of the special push-fit sets. It contains several models with their own special weapons.

As a special unit, I have decided to use green as the colour to pick them out.

Costing £15, this leaves me with £12 to carry forward to month 2.

Age of Sigmar Tale of Gamers - Start Collecting Finished

I have finished my start collecting set units. I've decided to colour-code units to make them easy to pick out, such as the sword and shield armed skeletons having red features. I will later be adding a spear-armed unit, which will have blue features.

Age of Sigmar Tale of Gamers - Start Collecting!

I have started a Tale of Gamers campaign with a group of friends. We have all picked different armies, and I have chosen Legions of Nagash.
We each start with the Start Collecting box for our army then, on the first Sunday of each month, we have to choose at least one unit to add to our force. Any money left over from our monthly budget can be carried forwards.
We have one month to paint our purchases. We get one point for each fully-painted unit, one point for winning a game, and minus points for each unfinished unit used in a game.

From the start collecting box I will be building:

Neferata: Mortarch of Blood
10 Skeleton Warriors with Ancient Blades and Shields
5 Black Knights

Grundi Ion Carbine Progress - 4th Feb 2016

Next update on the Ion Carbine. The panels on the body have been amended to what I wanted, and look so much better, and the addition of the grip detail and side slots makes a big difference. They still need to do the same for the muzzle and the bit on the top. The two cut away sections on the side of the muzzle need squared off, and the barrel shape needs changed to match the shape of the muzzle.

Grundi Ion Carbine - Sketch and Initial 3D Mock-Up

Here's the initial 3d mock-ups for my basic weapons, along with my sketch. The caster I use has their own 3d modeller, so I'm getting them to work from my design. The master will be printed, cleaned up and cast properly. This is the basic Ion Carbine for my Grundi figures. This in the first mock-up, and there is plenty to work on from here. I'll post updates as it progresses.

I gave the 3d modeller a couple of notes to work on, and will post pics when he shows me the result. The side panels should be the same width as the body, with thin recessed lines, rather than the whole panel being recessed. Also, the barrel should me the same shape as the muzzle, rather than just being round. I'll also get him to do a variant where the end of the barrel is just recessed into the muzzle, rather than having the lip, so that I can see what I prefer.

Grundi 2-Weapon Arms - January 2016

I've been getting back to working on the arms for my Grundi. I decided it would be best to sort the most useful arms first; double handed. I already have a bunch of single handed arms ready. Getting sent off for casting soon will be a pair of single-weapon arms, the 2-weapon arms, and an additional left arm that can hold the shield up in front of the figure.
