Have you looked at any pics of real life turtles for inspiration Myen’Tal?  On second thought, I think most of them are green anyway.  ;D

Thanks for the advice guys! I think I'll do that Void Turtle Shell along with the green skin. I think that'll look pretty fancy. Not sure what to do about the Howdah, but I've some ideas!

@Loosh: Patience, Master Jedi ;D. I simply do not have the room at the moment to keep painting, but I'll have some when my situation changes by the end of the month. I'm also ready to paint something!

So, question for all of the Hobby Maniacs on this forum ;D! So, I am at a crossroads... Originally, I was planning on branching into 40k with a Chaos Space Marine army. I can still do that and a part of me still wants too, but the problem is that Chaos still don't have the greatest rules and some of options in the new kits are somewhat bizarre. I mean, there's only one Chaingun in the Havoc Box, and only about one set of each melee weapon in the Terminator box.

I guess there'll always be third party bitz stores, but who knows at what point those may sell out for a good amount of time. I don't really want to be dependent on that.

And now, Slaanesh has been revealed, and I think it would contrast with my two aelven armies extremely well! I love the new models, and I've always been a Slaanesh fan too. So, I could go this route instead.

However, my last option is to jump into 40k from a different angle. Those new Vanguard Primaris look absolutely incredible... thing is, they don't have much in the way of a full range at the moment. I'm sure that'll be rectified by sometime later in the year though.

So... any suggestions about how I should go about choosing an option? :)


P.S: Seraphon also look really cool!!!

So I just got into chaos myself and believe me, the rules are solid. Last night my Necrons went up against them and whew, it was a good fight. He did a first turn deep strike with warp talons, psyched their movement and he assaulted a 14 strong warrior unit. Totalled them in cc and consolidated into my 5 praetorians, that was his downfall. Apparently since he engaged thru that and had already attacked, I got a free cc with them and took out 5. Then on my turn I finished them off but at a great lose of the 14 warriors. Abandon is really hard to kill too so, chaos is a good crossroad in my opinion for you. Besides the fact that they are fantastic models. As far as putting units together, GW has always done that to us, like the new chaos space marines box only has 2 plasma pistols but it gives you the choice for 2 champions. Give and take, buy more.

The new Slaneesh,oh boy, that's the mark I've been using on my black legion. I have daemonettes I've had for years. Now I can summon them to the battle field using reinforcement rules, different but I like it. The new models looks sweet. The keeper of secrets looks amazing.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for your honest opinion, Dread! It's truly appreciated ;D! Yeah I really love the new Chaos Space Marine models, I guess I really just need to understand what makes a good Chaos Marine list... there's so many options and I'm not sure I understand how all of them mesh together into a coherent fighting force.

I really also love the new Slaanesh! It might be something that will just have to wait for now though. I promised a friend of mine that I'd branch into 40k sooner rather than later, and though I like Daemons for Age of Sigmar, I rather play as one of the other factions in 40k.

So, I'll think on it :).

Chaos have a lot of filth in their kit bag in 40k. So you should be able to have some fun friendly games out of the gate.


Dread, There have been changes to deep striking, last I read, turn 1 deep strike is only in your own DMZ and there was big restrictions on how they could move after arriving as well. Not sure they could pull that move off any more.

Alright guys, I've purchased some more brushes, refreshed the paints that needed to be replaced, and I've got my models ready! Just waiting on my most recent order of paints to get delivered, then it's time to take up the brush again!

Also, I'm using the camera from my new Samsung phone. Let me know if I should make any adjustments. Personally, I think the images are coming out with much more pinpoint precision and higher quality.

Also, in other news: I played a game against a good friend of mine, who brought his Maggotkin to the field. I created a Battle Report for that in the Age of Sigmar forum.

And in other, other news:

Your Soulrender looks cool and I like how there is a metallic sheen to the finish. It is a shame that the harsh shadows are making it difficult to see any detail in your photo's though.

Hi Alienscar, thanks for the compliment and sorry about lighting! Thanks for letting me know about that, I'll take a few more pictures in better light and post them up in a little bit!

New Photos for Soulrender! Let me know if anymore adjustments should be made :).

Soulrender is looking great mate.


Have you worked out a colour scheme for the snakes yet?

Thanks, Mage, I'm really happy with how he came out!

As for the Snakes, I haven't chosen a color scheme yet. There's so many potential combinations that work well with the Daughters of Khaine. It'll take me a little while to choose one :). I'm torn between doing a bright and vibrant scheme or something more brooding.

For now, though, I'll keep on trucking with the Deepkin :).

So jealous. Such a cool model and I just can't afford it. My b day is coming up and I'm going to try and get one of the DoK box sets or the loon curse set, not sure yet but one of them.

Anywho, I can't wait to see what your going to do with her and the rest of the army but understand it'll be a bit, water elves are cool too!

Thanks, Dread! Yeah, I don't think you can go wrong with either box set to be honest! Both are pretty amazing on their own!

I did do the grey brush on primer experiment, but I think I'm going to wait until I get airbrushing before I start on the Daughters in earnest.

Daughters of Khaine Assembly Update:

Sorry if the photos are a bit off, I'm working in a room with not that much light in it. I've only really got my LED Lamp and some ceiling lights to work with. I've got to be careful with the LED lamp or it'll create harsh shadows. Going to have to find another solution I think to that problem.

Looking good. The sculptures are so beautiful, I stare at mine sometimes and think how good they look in plastic and almost don't want to paint them. Anyhow, will be anxiously waiting to see yours.

Thanks guys, glad that you're liking them! ;D

I'll actually have an important update in a week or two. I've officially ordered an air compressor and the entire Citadel Air Range. I've also gotten a few auxiliary items from the vallejo range. I should now be officially ready to start airbrushing in a week or so.

EDIT: So, bad news, the sylvaneth stuff that I bought got refunded today. Not my choice, or the seller's fault. Looncurse shortage meant that he didn't get any. So, not certain if I'll jump into sylvaneth immediately now. Store owner is offering me 30% off, so I might get some as anyway 😋.

EDIT #2:

Managed to snatch two of the last three in a gaming store about half an hour away! Disaster averted!

man the AoS model look awesome :)

The new trees look great too, I want to see how easy it is to move models through them as the old wood are kinda terrible.
