Post summer holiday news overload

Hello everyone, Corvus again. Yes I know I should be posting more here, looks like I saved up a lot stuff again for another big post.
But I have a good reason this time :) I just got back from my summer holiday. First my family and I spent a nice 10 days in Italy, then we went home for a couple of days and then spent another two weeks at the seaside in The Netherlands (like we do every year).

As you can expect after my previous post the Age of Sigmar box has taken up all of my hobby time last month.

I took the sprues with me to Italy together with a knife, cutters, glue and some other assembly gear. I managed to assemble all Sigmar models and three of the Chaos models. As usual with the more recent GW plastics assembly was a breeze and fun to do.

Then in the last two weeks I spend a couple of nights painting the basic rank & file Sigmarites. Progress seemed slow (only the armour is finished now), but I guess the hardest work has been done already.

Here's what I have so far:

The partially painted Sigmarites, the blue has only been basecoated.

The Chaos characters assembled:

Other Sigmar models, assembled and primed:

This little sheet displays my color choices. So the turqoise is going to be my main color for the shields, shoulder pads etc, while the violet is going to be the secondary color.

But the rest of the project will have to wait a bit since this guy is now waiting to be painted: Belial of the Dark Angels, which is a commission job.

And in between I'm still doing quite some behind the scenes work. The plan is to create a new website and overall look for Corvus Miniatures at some point.
The new logo looks like this, I hope you like it :)

Age of Sigmar has arrived

A big new project has arrived on my workbench: Age of Sigmar.

A game like Warhammer Fantasy always intrigued me in a way, but I never really found an army I liked enough to start painting up several ranks of miniatures, let alone start learning the rules. But with Age of Sigmar it's different (at least for this starter box).

I really like the miniatures in this starter set, both sides (Sigmar and Chaos). What also appeals to me is the new set of rules: it's only 4 pages! And the fact that this is the very beginning of something new and (hopefully) very big makes it the perfect time to jump in.

The box is filled with sprues which are packed with parts. In total there are 47 figures in the box. Added to that are dice, rulers, decals, manuals and a load of bases.

This is the ruleset: 4 pages (and the first page is basically on how to setup your battlefield).

The book from the starter: it doesn't show in this picture but it's almost 100 pages. The new artwork looks badass.

I understand I have a lot of work in front of me and it's totally different from what I have been doing the last 2-3 years, but I am very motivated to jump into Age of Sigmar.

Operation Icestorm: finishing up the Nomads

I'm on the final stretch with the Nomads.

Mobile Brigade is done except for the base:

And then this guy which I am painting up entirely on camera and if all goes well I will make a tutorial video about:

Operation Icestorm PanOceania finished + Nomads WIP

Hello everyone. The plan is to start posting on this blog more regularly again soon, in the meantime here are some work in progress shots of the Nomads faction of Operation Icestorm.

The PanOceania guys are finished, here is a quick picture of the figures:
