Good solid start though. Also now know you're my dopelganger. All sorts of building but not much paint slinging. I'm about to get the chaos portion of the Shadowspear  box, ya! Keep at it, check on you soon.

Sweet, I'm also really tempted to make Chaos my first 40k army. But I'm already snowed under with stuff to paint at the moment... so I need to get to work on that first ;).

Assembly Update #3:

Also, here is some progress that I'm making so far:

I have got to say that I enjoy looking at your assembly progress. Putting the models together is a large part of the hobby and not something we see a lot of. For me there is a certain appeal to the way an assembled model looks and sometimes I think a bare plastic model can look better than when it has been painted.

After all no one ever looked at Michelangelo's David, or Rodin's The Thinker and said that they would look better with a coat of paint and a highlight.

Thanks, Alienscar, I love seeing minis without any paint on them too! You get to see all of the craftsmanship created by the artists and designers who made these, before you make the mini your own with some paint. And you're correct, some of my minis would probably look better without paint! ;).

Also, I have a surprise coming tomorrow! No, it's not anything painted :-[ ;).

Indeed! After a couple of games with the Deepkin, I think I've hoped on the All Akhelian Corps lists that are popular right now. Haven't given up on the Namarti, think I'll use them in a Namarti Corps list that I'll build in the future.

Just need one more Akhelian King!

I probably won't touch these newer models until I get the airbrush up and running. But I've got some ideas on how best to tackle them :)! I'll just keep building for now.

Oh boy! Gonna be great, look just like mine as of now. We both need to paint but when we do and set them by each other, it will be greatness for sure.

The models look great, your getting the pro-warhammer "to paint" queue :)

No doubt, Dread, it will be glorious! I'm curious how you plan to do your bases? I'm thinking about trying to make a lava base via a Warhammer TV Tutorial. It will definitely work for the Witch Aelves and Khinerai, as they are already above ground. Not sure how it'll work for the Cauldron or the Melusai though... might look like they're sinking in some cataclysm rather than fighting lol!

I'm also thinking that I might do lava bases for... a Scourged Renegade Chapter of Chaos Space Marines :o! Might go ahead and trade off my Stormcast, the Ironjawz that I bought years ago, and the two limited edition Nighthaunt models. I think I only need two AoS armies until Slaves to Darkness come out sometime!

The models look great, your getting the pro-warhammer "to paint" queue :)


Indeed! I've got some friends who are liking AoS, so I'll probably trade my Stormcast off to them! Really want to focus on the Aelves in AoS for the moment, so we'll see!

Sweet minis Myen’Tal!  :)

I’m loving how much AoS is on the go in the projects blog.  Great to see how fantasy is sharing the platform with 40k.  ;D
