    Re: Little Joe's projects united

    First test post, lets start with the things I did so far in 2016.

    Some of my hobby time is spend with a friends son and daughter showing them techniques to craft things. One of the items we made were stone golems. I do not like the Forgeworld idol and so we set out to build them from PUR foam and wooden picks to keep it all together. Toilet paper soaked in wood glue adds an outer shell that will make sure it does not break. This is mine.

    I want a miniature this big to tell a small story, why else build something that huge? So its left arm is fused into place to build a protective platform for a nightgoblin shaman. A second shaman is filling it with life. Conveniently this allows me to use some of the more unwieldy models in my collection.
    The right arm is supposed to be flowing with boulders moving to the end to crush enemies with the fist building up.

    Basing is a bit bland for my doing, but it has to fit the army.



















    Yay, first post done.

    Re: Little Joe's projects united

    next up are some miniatures I finished or did as a test case for Warhamer Fantasy. I have a few forces I want to build up to 1000 points and some monsters in general to add for scenarios at that level. While I am a big fan of wround bases, these will stay in line with Warhammer Fantasy old world style.

    A high Elf Mage, not sure yet where I want to take the IoB elves yet. But it will be a small sea themed force for sure. The other elves might get more purple gold though to use them for the War of the Beard.





    A wyvern, I considered briefly to make it an Goblin air cavalry drop wyvern. Might still do that, but that is way down the line when I have finished the goblin tribes.





    And finally a tomb kings miniature, still missing a lot I want from this range. These are easy to paint, so the plan is to paint this small force in between. I removed the priest and made it a manscorpion, the direction will be more in line with the Gilgamesh saga for sure.

    The Stone Golem is fantastic, and suitably large! Also it's really great that you're sharing your skills with your friends children. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks, it will be slow. Real life is not giving me much time.

    I love Arcworlde, which by the way has a kickstarter running. I am supporting it simply because that is what the platform is for in my opinion.

    Thanks! Almost too large, but for kids bigger is better . To teach them painting smaller would be much better, and less detail. Its a fun and a great way to further improve my hobby skills. My friends seem more than happy to "dump" the children with me.


    The bit of time I had this weekend was spend processing the latest batch of miniatures I acquired. I love to buy bigger batches on-line, take what I want/need and sell the leftovers on in smaller chunks. But it can add too much too fast to the pile of unpainted miniatures.
    So starting now, I set myself some new rules.

    1) I can only buy as much as I can paint.
    Preferably less, to get on with things. This can also be achieved by finishing a backlog of miniatures to sell and/or condensing the pile a bit. 4 50l boxes of backlog are more than enough. And that's just what fit in those boxes :cries:.

    2) I will have to find out what exactly is in those boxes, I reserved a few posts up there to put up what it is I have in the first place. I am not hopeless yet.

    3) Teach my future house painters.

    Re: Little Joe's projects united

    Lately I mostly read up on ninth age. I forwarded the rules to the friends I used to play with, let's see what goes. I always enjoyed making army lists. So with the late demise of the range as a whole I had fun building a few 1500 point armies for 9th age with the miniatures I own usable for various Warhammer Fantasy armies. Just to see if I still need more of course ...

    My hopes are that I can actually finish these small limited projects and thus reduce my backlog. After browsing a few army lists I decided to start with Sylvan Elves. Since I had a forest dragon as a conversion WIP on my work table it was an easy choice to finish that first.

    I had many parts that did not really fit together, but in the end I think it will make a great forest dragon. Now a dragon is obviously too large to fly around among the trees. So this will be a lake dweller. The rider is the lord on horse, but it had weird trousers. I used basic plastic glade rider legs and used a saw on the lord. Cutting away the legs was quite a lot of work. My greenstuff skills are good enough to fix gaps and blend things together. I donít mind taking it slowly and build up in many sessions.





    So while this miniature is actually getting along well, I decided to give the Sylvan Elves a very simple paint scheme. Nothing fancy, get them done fast and effectively.
    First problem was me including a unit riding horses. I had so far never painted up a decent looking horse. So after a lot of research on the internet and finding many obvious mistakes I made in the past, here is what I did for the fur.


    Base colours with some stripes added for direction.


    Dulled down with a wash.






    Building up layers of very thin base gey, then with brown and finally added some lighter grey.


    First test horse.

    I kept the simple style I wanted for the rider (only legs so far), but horses simply needed more layers. I am quite happy with the result. It is only a small unit, so I will go with quality. I simply took an image from the internet and painted that colour scheme. Each horse will be individual because this is a free herd.

    Like almost anything of my recent collection these are salvaged from the internet and cleaning starts with breaking them apart. I made good progress on cleaning and preparing what I have, I like that I can do some modelling to make it all fit.

    So this is what I want to build for this project:

    Forest Prince on Dragon with lance and shield
    2 Druids
    2 units of 13 Sylvan Archers, full command
    5 Heath Riders, full command
    10 Dryads, champion
    3 Kestrel Knights with shields, full command
    5 Sylvan Sentinels, champion
    5 Pathfinders, champion

    I have no idea if this works well or not. I can build it fast with what I have and it fits the visual style I want of small units and lots of bows. Once done, thatís it.

    I hope you are as exited as I am about my initial progress.

    Re: Little Joe's projects united

    Small update, I finally finished putting together the riders. It was much more work than anticipated due to them being second hand. I broke them apart, cleaned mold lines, fixed or replaced broken parts and did some minor converting



    First one painted, hope you like the progress so far.

    Lovely looking models... I've always liked Wood Elves.

    Soooo, you're still playing Fantasy then? Pardon my ignorance, but I have been away for a while, and Fantasy is pretty much non existent around here these days...

    Re: Little Joe's projects united

    Great Photobucket is bugged ...
    I will look into it later on.

    @Boreas: I sadly don't play much, but if I do its most likely to be fantasy. I loved the old world setting. I really like the ArcWorlde setting now. 9th age provides solid rules to play Warhammer Fantasy.

    I really liked a lot of the sculpts, the destruction of the old world and AoS do not change that. So with the rules provided by the 9th age and the setting I like, I decided to go and build some small armies using those miniatures. I will use hero models as champions, maybe a whole unit of heroes for Chaos. 1500 points is small enough for me to finish projects and to include a nice centrepiece model in each faction.
    There is no way I am disbanding my O&G, dwarves or Vampire Counts armies. I might chunk them up in sub armies, but those three I still want to build up big.
    The 9th age has more options, so there is opportunity to do some modelling and converting as well.

    I have all but a few models needed to build a Wood Elves, High Elves, Skaven, Dogs of War, Warriors of Chaos, Tomb Kings and a Bretonnia force. I like the trading aspect to fill the gaps, it is all part of my hobby, why should I change all of that?

    Re: Little Joe's projects united

    If I'm completely honest, I would like to get back into playing Fantasy... Very much so, in fact... One of the reasons I got back into Mordheim in the first place...

    AoS just doesn't cut it for me. The models look pretty sweet, but it's not Warhammer... How does the 9th age compare to the other editions? I am all blank on this subject, so any info would be very much appreciated...

    Re: Little Joe's projects united

    The 9th Age is different enough to be a new game. It is closest to 8th edition, but adds a world of fixes and clarification. If you know 8th and want to update your knowledge quickly, it is made easy by highlighting the changes. Many diagrams to clarify are added and help a lot. The way rules are developed is extremely promising.
    If I had to describe it in a few words, then this is a game where every soldier matters and has a role, there is no obvious power gaming.

    You won’t like everything, which is normal.

    The army books are full of options for miniatures Warhammer had from the 4th to the 8th edition. Units have more options and base size is clearly defined. Base size is my biggest problem with 9th Age, some of the bases I use are larger. This effects war machines mostly, but also my idol for O&G (there never was a 100x100 base, mine will not fit).
    No special characters, but you could use your favourite character without issues if you agree on it with your opponent.

    Most notable changes:
    - Units have a height added (small, medium, large) that may block LOS
    - Costs of item (magic and mundane) vary based on the profile that uses it
    - The only minimum requirement in army building is a 25% core and a number of units, caps take care of spamming filth
    - Magic
    - Ridden monsters are a bit more complicated but way more logical
    - Weapons and armour got serious updates
    - Battle standard is still captured when fleeing but the fleeing character survives
    - Dangerous terrain works different on different troop types, a logical scale up
    - Special rules doing the same have the same name again
    - Many names changed

    It is currently in a locked state, this is very exciting because now the rules get flesh to the bones. Artwork, stories and unit descriptions get added to the barebone rules.

    EDIT: And it is free of course, check the link.

    Re: Little Joe's projects united

    I really like your Bayourks, the sculpts are very characterful and I think you've done them justice.
    I nearly backed the first Arcworlde KS but didn't as I already had plenty to paint. I thought I'll pick some up retail when my painting pile has gone down. It still hasn't yet, but maybe I'll pick some up in the future.
    Have you played the Arcworlde rules? Any thoughts?


    Nice work on the wood elves (or should I call them Aelfs?)
