Been working on this for a while. I cut down on the 4x painting a lot and kept each step to under a minute. Still ended up being over 20mins XD. I will keep trying to expand on my explanations so there isn’t too much dead air.

Eventually, I want a 4K camcorder or at least an updated HD camcorder. The one I have is over 10 years old! I dream of a day where the colours are true and my details crisp.

What will be next?

Originally, these minis were Castigators from the Soul Wars set. There was only 3. So, not only they don’t hit the minimum squad size, I don’t like how they play. Looking through the book, I found I like how the Vanguard-Raptors seem to play. I like the number of shots the Hurricane Crossbows have, in particular.

All I needed were the fronts of hurricane crossbows (plus my custom wolf ornaments) to make this conversion.

I cut off the crossbow limbs, set aside, and flattened down the front. Glue the hurricane crossbow bit to the flattened front. The limbs have ornamentation on the base and tip. I cut those off and glue them to the top and bottom of the crossbow, just behind the front bit. This will make it look like scales of some sort, just nice detailing to make the weapon for interesting. Any gaps should be filled with greenstuff or the like.

The squad leader is holding a bolt for the greatbow. But since she no longer has a great bow I needed to think of something else. I couldn’t think of anything to replace it with, so I added some Stormcast helmet halos to make it some kind of flare/torch/lamp thing.

They only need 3 models to a squad, so we will see if I want to make more of them.

A small batch of Sequitors, most of them with the big hammers.

I got more bits to make 4 more Sequitors with the big hammers so my squads are round off to 4 or 5 minimum-sized squads.

Finished this awesome looking model and filmed it.

I customized the helmet to be more wolf-like and added some old Empire bits to make it closer to my Middenheim theme.

The Gryph-charger scheme is based off a Black-and-White Warbler. A tiny and cute bird.

The first of my Stormcast Eternals are now done. Custom bases, helmets, motifs, and hammerhead. With all those fancy bits, I came up with a name for my Stormhost too, Ulric’s Retribution.

The story is my Stormcast are the men and women who fought in the fall of Middenheim and the Old World, true heroes one and all. They were reborn on the anvil with the unique quirk of still worshiping Ulric over Sigmar. They were put together in a Stormhost called Ulric’s Retribution and now fight with the Middenheim Historical Association (Cities of Sigmar Freeguild, name still WIP).

I made several unique helmets and bases that I will be using on all my Stormcast. I also made a hammer head that I will be using to replace all the 2-handed hammers that will be available. I’m most happy with that one, it looks great.

The colour scheme is an alternate version of the Hallowed Knights scheme, adding a bit more black, gold, and off-white to get it closer to my original Middenheim colour scheme.

Finally, the little humies get part of a battletome, and a cool one too! Now that I have access to a laser cutter, I thought it was high time to rebase my old Empire army. I designed a cobblestone texture and had it engraved onto MDF, then cut into different sizes.

Slowly but surely, there will be many more rebased. Maybe I’ll even get new minis for this army. I have been eyeing Demigryphs since they first came out.

Since I am a puritan, all my units will be human. I don’t want elves or dwarfs. My old engineers will be the new Cogsmiths. Maybe my Warpriests will be my Runelords if I want a Greywater Fastness army.

My own creation for Games Workshop’s Blood Bowl game. The Human team, Middenheim Maulers. I have an Empire Middenland army, so naturally I’ll have a Middenland team. I didn’t like the scheme GW put out for Middenland, so I changed it to fit it to my liking. My buddy that got the starter, gave me a few players to fill out my team and I added the Ogre. Not sure if I will get the star players that are coming out, but they do look fun to paint.

I think I will add decals sometime in the future, but the future is not today lol.
