This has been sitting on the back burner for a bit while I was focusing on the Harlequins, but I finally did get around to magnetizing it. Just the main armaments are have magnets so it can switch between the railgun and heavy missile system.

A second Men-at-Arms stand and another hero stand.

I just need to finish a command strip of the infantry and I’ll have a finished regiment! This regiment will have Polish red/white colours, but my other units will have different schemes.

The second hero stand that is complete is a hero with a banner. She is accompanied by a Winged Hussar with his own flag. I think this time, the two minis aren’t as obvious in their different scales as with the Green Knight. My headcannon says the cloth over the hero’s horse is pretty thick and makes the horse bulky.

I gotta say, I was skeptical on the paper flag print out, but having it attached and together with the other painted minis, I think it really comes together. My general is going to have even larger flags, so I hope their more intricate design goes with the rest of the army well.

Finished a bit more of the Warmaster Bretonnians.

The Green Knight hero is accompanied by a winged hussar from Pendraken. I went for the ethereal green like in total war warhammer and gave a bit of a glow to the Green Knight. I painted the Hussar in the traditional red scheme with a leopard pelt. I also got these scale paper Polish flags and attached one. I think the theme is starting to come together.

The first stand of men-at-arms is done. I plan on doing different cloth colors for different regiments, but this one will be in Polish red and white.

Knock, knock. Who’s there? A new Bretonnia army.

For myself, I had a friend print out about 1000 points of 10mm Warmaster Bretonnians designed by Forest Dragon and I started with the Trebuchet. I cut out a base using 0.5mm styrene and put in the crew’s positions before painting and flocking. I went with a pale brown wood colour and added some bushes.

This is looking great already and I can’t wait to show off my ideas for the rest of the army.

Harlequin for scale.

I am pleased to show off my first of three converted Scourgerunner Chariots, finally painted. Some time ago, I put together three of these as my rendition of the Cities of Sigmar Scourgerunner Chariot. I game terms, the chariot is supposed to be a Drukhari/Dark Elf/Privateer model, but I made mine aesthetically human. Specifically, in my Middenheim blue/white colour scheme and Freeguild design.

For the other non-human units in the army book, what kind of scratchbuilds or conversions can I do on the monsters that could follow the Freeguild/human aesthetic? I’m looking into possible clockwork/steampunk works or several guardsmen in hydra hide for my initial ideas.

Cities of Sigmar: Ulric’s Retribution – Phoenix Guard & Anointed Conversion August 14, 2021

It certainly has been a hot minute since my last post on these guys, but rest assured, I have not forgotten about them. Today, I have a few pictures on some Phoenix Guard and an Anointed I’m putting together.

These are the last of the Phoenix Guard that I built up, though I still want another 6 to round off the unit to 20 models. As you may have noticed, I don’t use actual Phoenix Guard for the base of the minis. They are either old metal full plate Empire models or Greatsword legs with Knightly Order bodies and a mix of arms to hold a mix of different halberds.

As for the Anointed, I didn’t actually plan to make one for my army, just happy using my Freeguild General. But as I play the army, I am liking the Phoenix Guard more and more and though I should add one for more composition options. I had an extra pair of legs from my Hurricanum, then put it with Knightly Order bits for that power pose. The weapon is a High Elf great axe attached to a brass rod. Hopefully that represents a halberd well enough. Then, the greenstuff happened.

I have a small mold for doing chainmail I got from Greenstuff World that I used to do the mail skirt. I added in riding skirts, a belt, made his shoes armoured, and spruced up the shaft of the weapon. I added some teeth to the helmet and a wolf motif on the axe to keep up my Middenheim theme.

I am calling this half of the Soulscream bridge done! I’ve been working on this for a while. There was some planning and diagram making to get me the general shape.

It all started with a couple of laser cut MDF pieces for the frame and some styrene sheets cut for the foundation. The rest is Milliput and Greenstuff built up for the bricks and motifs. The pieces of Azyr floor is from the Large Base details set and the embellishments for old bits from the Empire and stuff from the Stormcast Eternals. I made sure to add some brick details on the underside so it wouldn’t be so smooth.

All I need to do it paint it fittingly. I will be going for magic forces moving pieces together, building the bridge while the spell is being cast.

The first of my custom Stonework bases molded and casted. I added a black wash so the details can be seen. They are looking good. Next set is being molded now. My Stormcast are going to look so good.

Super excited for more conversions. This one is pretty much a scratch build. Inspired by PaintedByG I thought I would do a Cities of Sigmar themed endless spell too.

I had the arch laser cut and since I made the slope too steep, I decided to go with it. The bridge is going to be one of those fancy bridges with stairs on both sides and a motif in the center. The end of it has pieces of Azyrite flooring that are all broken up. I plan on adding water effects and colour to make it look like magic is pulling pieces in and building the bridge. I’m going to be doing this again for the other half of the spell.

It already looks great and I can’t wait to show you more.

Super proud of making this piece. This is one of 3 chariots I made. Using a Wizkids wagon as the base, the rest is cannibalized parts and polystyrene pieces.
