I’ve made a ton of progress painting Conan figures as of late. I nearly have all the figs from the base game complete and have started into the figures I need to play the campaign.
Enough Bossonian Guards for every scenario!
Amra the Lion
“Long have I wished to meet you, Amra,” the black gave Conan the
name—Amra, the Lion—by which the Cimmerian had been known to the
Kushites in his piratical days.
-THE SCARLET CITADEL
Another new project! Rolled up a PtG Tzeentch warband with a few friends. I picked Tzeentch to keep the painting momentum from my Silver Tower set. For my warband I rolled up: 1 Gaunt Summoner with Familiars, 5 Tzaangors, 20 Blue Horrors and 3 Enlightened. The Enlightened are built and primed so will appear in a later post. But in the meantime, I’ve finished my Blue Horrors.
While assembling the Blue Horrors and Tzaangor Enlightened I also assembled 20 Pink Horrors, 20 Brimstone Horrors, Herald of Tzeentch and a Burning Chariot. At some point I’ll get to them!
Finished up a few more Conan figures. Dark Demon and mummies. I have many more Conan figs almost complete.
Painted up two more Kairic Acolytes. Shadows over Hammerhal & Age of Sigmar requires ten Acolytes figures for encounters/ unit size.
Screamers of Tzeentch are alternate encounters in Silver Tower, and, I can add them to a future Tzeentch force. I had to paint these figs twice as I tried a two-colour faded paint scheme that failed. This is this re-paint.
The Dreadquake Mortar replaces my Hellcannon. Now my 1000pt all have the Legions of Azgorh keyword. I like the thematic rules “Make free with the lash” to get an extra shot in a round.
The ogre miniature is from Ristul’s Extraordinary Market, and the crew are from Darkling Games. I converted one of the crew to carry a whip.
The Death Guard are ready for battle.
I had to cut a few corners to get them done for Saturday’s 40k release in the shop, but with Nurgle figs I think you can be a bit sloppy and still make them look good. I loosely followed the painting guide that came in the core box. I could have easily spent more time on these figs, I’ll come back to them at some point to pick out a few more details.
A few more colours added.
Next session I’ll slow down a bit and paint individual details.
