From the mists of legend they come…

I’ve always been a fan of some of the more unusual creatures from the depths of Warhammer 3rd edition. Zoats, were wolves, jabberwock and many others haven’t had much limelight for many years.

I’ve been pleased to learn that the Fimir still have rules under the Age of Sigmar game system, but a little disappointed by how different the Forge World Fimir look compared to the classic models of old.

Assembling the puppets – Sorceror of Tzeentch and Tzaangor

In a rare show of progress, I have assembled the Tzeentch Sorceror and spent some time on adding a few starting models to the warband. Here is a converted Cyclops from Heresy Miniatures.

Joining these two heroes will be the forces provided by the Silver Tower. I have begun by assembling 3 of the Tzaangor to test paint.

Age of Sigmar: The Fimir

What began as a small project to put together a few Fimir models for Age of Sigmar has quickly exploded into a whole host of Albion bogeymen. Knowing how rare (read: expensive) the classic metal Fimir models are, I didn’t invest any hope in getting them. Instead I converted some plastic Heroquest models I have lying around in my various spare Heroquest boxes. I’d also managed to trade for a limited Jes Goodwin sculpt, which is of the same scale. In the long term, I planned to slowly gather a few Forgeworld models to convert as leaders and then perhaps sculpt or convert others as the warband developed.

Khorne – the evolution of khorne bunny ears 1985-2015

Looking over (and painting!) the new Khorne Blood Warriors, it occurred to me that their helmets have gone beyond barmy. Yes, it’s pretty clear they worship Khorne, do they really need a huge Khorne-icon built into their helmets? For method killers, surely this is impractical for cumbersome. Khorne wants blood, not your head getting stuck to something.

Where did it all start, I wondered. Well, I decided to look back. I like looking back, the models are beautiful.
