Stormcast Eternal Liberators

Well this is fairly noteworthy in that, for the first time in a very long time, I've got freshly painted (and finished) miniatures to share with you!

Working through the box of Age of Sigmar, I've got the first ten Stormcast wrapped up. For reasons I still need to share (but haven't yet) I need to make these guys look good, better than anything I've done before, so I've done more highlighting and shading than ever before. I've still got a LOT of learning to do but am really excited moving forward!

The box comes with two, five-man squads, each led by a Liberator Prime. Here's the first of those...

...and the second. 

There's also decals in the box with different squad markings for these guys. I opted for the baseline lightning bolt icon as well as the crescent moon icon. Also included was a nova star and a twin-tailed comet. 

Here's front and back detail of a standard trooper. 

Shield details. 

And the two Liberator Prime squad leaders. I favor the sculpt on the right, but both are cool. I also really like that there are two distinct sculpts for each. Speaking of which, there's four different sculpts for the foot troops as well. 

Next up I've got those winged, dual-hammer wielding angels of retribution, the Prosecutors. I'll get a WIP of them up tomorrow. So until then, enjoy!

More Liberator WIP

Still working on these guys, okay, I might have mixed a little Destiny and DA:Inquisition in there on PS4 along the way but now the light is at the end of the tunnel for these guys. 

Following the how-to videos has introduced a LOT of extra steps I normally would've skipped or just not even known about, but all these details are coming together quite nicely. 

Until next time, enjoy!

Age of Sigmar Liberators

Back in the saddle! It's been what? Weeks? Months? Years?  

Well, the gap here hasn't been filled with minis I haven't been showing you, I just haven't been doing anything all this time in the minis department!  All that changes now, below is my current project; the new Warhammer Age of Sigmar...

I'm batch painting the two units of Stormcast Eternal Liberators from the starter set; each unit of four troops is lead by a Prime. Can't say enough good things about these figs, especially considering that they're starter box models!

I should mention that I'm using the excellent tutorial videos on the YouTube channel Warhammer TV by Duncan Rhodes. He's broken down all models in the starter box and although the steps are long and many, he makes them very doable. 

Any reader of the blog knows that I am really a get-them-on-the-table kind of painter but not this time. These guys I'm going to knock out of the box. 

Speaking of the box, here's Age of Sigmar assembled. Some of it was trickier than I thought, but other than a little green stuff needed on the big character model, they went together quickly. 

Until next time, enjoy!
