Default Age of Sigmar is MINE!!!!

Got my box of Warhammer Age of Sigmar yesterday. Lousy GW not letting people pick stuff up on Fridays anymore.


The insides of the box are pretty nice.

I, obviously, haven't had a chance to use the measuring sticks but I kind of like them. They lack the floppiness of a tape measure that's been used too often. Additionally, the sprues are nice in that the only pieces I had left over is an extra head and a couple of weapons for the Blood Reavers.


The book is gorgeous. The artwork some of the best to come from these people. We've all read the rules that come with it. Being free online. GW. However, I would have liked the warscrolls to have been separate from the book. This would have made things much easier to use in a game. That is really just a nitpick of one of their better designed offerings.

Also, I did manage to get them all put together. Takes a while to do it right of course.

Do you mean it's hard to assemble, or just a slow proces to do it right?

I had an AMAZING time at fightclub.

I arrived a bit late, so I missed the introductions, but man... I had an awesome time at fightclub! 10/10 I would recommend fight club to anybody!

Its just time consuming. I usually take my time scraping of mold lines and the sprue bits that are still on from cutting the pieces free.
Assembly is easy enough if you've built other things.

So I decided to go with the Lions of Sigmar color scheme. Did this liberator as a test.

Since I don't want to pay $5.25 per pot for the "right" colors, I went with Balthasar Gold and Naggrath Night. (Actually just waiting for my Vallejo Air Shining Gold I ordered then I'll get a bunch of these started pretty fast.) Did the black bits in Abbadon Black and some Leadbeltcher.
Gave a quick Reikland Fleshshade wash and when I get a little more time I'll bring it up with the Balthasar and some Auric.
The Goretide will probably be done by the book since its the perfect Khorne color scheme. Red, Brass, Bone and Blood!!!!
Just waiting on a bunch of skulls to deck out their bases.

The two new golds are more expensive because they've got an alcohol base and are VERY smooth. You definitely get what you pay for with 'em.

IN THE US? ASK ME HOW TO GET 10% OFF GAMES WORKSHOP PRODUCTS!

I'm sure its good quality paint, but.... its still $5.25 for a pot. I'm just not going to do it. Looked at it when I got the boxset, and didn't when I saw the price. I might cave on the Liberator Gold for the highlighting once I get to that point. Keep going back and forth on it.
Plus they upped the paint costs, to $4.25, not much but still up.
I got my Vallejo Polished Gold and it looks pretty close to Retributor Armor so I can easily base all my Lions quickly. Probably going to use it on my test knight to get him to match better.

Finished the first of the models from the boxset.


Only things I'd like to add to him would be doing some highlighting with that Liberator Gold. Tried to use Runelord Brass with a little of the Auric but it looked like ass. So I guess GW is getting an extra $5.25. Additionally, I'd love to add the star effect they show on the GW store-site. I just need to find a way to do that. Anyone with some good ideas or links on that would be helpful.
Now, I've been working slowly on the first set of Liberators at the same time as well.
Now I just need to have my order of skulls from Secret Weapon Miniatures to come in so I can finish basing Khorne's bloodhost.

I've been looking forward to the AoS logs starting. Good work so far. That Lord Celestant is a pretty intimidating model but you've done a good job. If I can produce one to the same standard I'll be happy.

Finished up some more of the guys from the Age of Sigmar Boxset.

First full squad/regiment is the Liberators of my Lions of Sigmar.

I did break down and get the Liberator gold for highlighting the gold on these guys. I have got to admit that the color adds a great highlight to that gold. I tried to mix up my own version early on with Runelord brass and Auric Gold. It didn't really like the look so good on the gold. So, $5.25 for a pot of paint.
Added the highlights to my Lord Celestant to make him look even better, as well.

Here are the finished Lions of Sigmar that I have so far.
