The Unsinkables WIP #17 : Bases! Again!

With the goal of figuring out if my paint scheme for the bases works or not, i decided to spend some extra time today completing a set for my blightking to sit on. I'm still pretty happy with the result.

The Unsinkables WIP #16 : Bases! (and not, not making any jokes about bases).

Bases are often what makes armies stand out from others. For that reason, it is very important to me to make great looking base for my WoC army. With the boat themed, i figured that deck-like bases would be perfect for the army. After looking at many amazing looking army for inspiration, i went and started my bases ;

The Unsinkables WIP #15 : BSB done! 10 WoC done! 30 shields done! Chimera done!

Spent a few days away from home, but managed to get a few hours in before and after, and managed to complete pretty much everything i wanted to build. I call them done, but i might go and add some barnacle here and there. But the biggest job is done ; they are all built, nurgle-ized, and ready to be fielded on the table.

Forgeworld/Game Workshop "Made in China" review #2

I posted a review a few months ago about my first ever purchase of Forgeworld's copy from china. It was plague toad, basically, a big blob of finecast from nurgle. It was pretty hard to fail copying that. For the price i paid, i was very happy, and they served as a count as for my beast of nurgle, which models is old, ugly, and frankly outdated. Since then, the market for copy grew, and it is now easier than ever to find copy of just about anything, even Witch Elves! (when i take the witch elves for example, its simply to show how they can get filmsy detailed model copied now!)

When i started my Warrior of Chaos army, i didn't really consider china copy, because everything was easily available online (at already 25% off), and i'm not a big fan of failed copy. In the end, i did place an order, kinda to test the water to see how their copy do vs the real stuff. My order was ;

Chaos Lord
Nurgle Chaos Lord
Forgeworld Merwyrm
Hell Cannon
Sayl and his spawn.

The Unsinkables WIP #13 : 5 more WoC done, a Caster, a Lord and a Spawn.

Another update tonight? Yes Yes! after a very productive day/night, i managed to finish my goal for the week and some more!

I also received my order from an undisclosed business selling "Made in China", which i'll review in the next couple days.

The Unsinkables WIP #12 : Chariot done and some more WoC

Some updates pre-christmass!

First, i pretty much completed my chariot, the chariot and warshrine riders and 5 more WoC. That's some pretty nice work, giving me a total of 15 completed WoC so far, with 2 being worked on, and 3 waiting to be touched.

The Unsinkables WIP #10 : 4 Warriors done, 4 WiP and 1... something else!

 December is a big month for just about anyone with kids. Even worst when 2 of them have their birthday during the month, so my free time was pretty sparse. I still managed to get some things done, and i'm pretty happy with the result so far...

The Unsinkables WIP #9 : Warrior work has begun!

For the past days/week, i worked on and off on the Warrior, first to try and recreate some sort of halberd, and second to try and nurgle-ize them. It been an uphill battle, and i'm stil not sure i'm winning this one...
