Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 5

It is possible to make an Orruk with two bashas from the sprue of the Ardboys. I must confess, the clubs have such a wonderfully dull and brutal appearance that I really wanted to have an orruk with two of them. I also like the look of the faces of the Ironjaw Brutes and I think that an army always looks like it belongs together when it has a common recognition value like the facial features and heads.

Warcry Ravaged Lands – Shattered Stormvault

With Warcry filling in the fantasy counter-part of Kill Team, Games Workshop supplies the game with their variant of the Killzones called Ravaged Lands. We have covered a couple of those Killzones already on the blog, for example Killzone: Sector Mechanicus and Killzone: Sector Fronteris. And today we cover the first of the Ravaged Lands, the Shattered Stormvault.

Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 4

The nice thing about building up a warband is that you have the opportunity to try something new every now and then. With the fourth member of the Redfists I implemented something that I always wanted to try out: I painted Vorlug in a half-sided pattern. Depending on which side you look at the model from, it looks as if it has either a predominantly red armor or a predominantly black one.

Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 3

The younger plastic Ardboys have the tendency to have very large surfaces of armor, which can lead to the Space Marine effect. The Space Marine effect? This is the kind of boredom you get when you paint the same color on large areas for a long time. Although the new Ardboys also have many smaller details, such as pelts or protruding leather shreds, the armour retains its somewhat bare plate look. So it takes some time to get to the point where you add a little more variety to them, such as a flame pattern, a few glyphs, spikes and the like.

Izgrod

A big mouth and the choppas to back him up, that`s Izgrod. He`s been with the Redfists for a while now and has seen numerous battles. Time has made him posey and the other Redfists rather dislike him for that. Usually Gotmork would`ve just killed the lesser disciplined Orruks, though at the moment Izgrod is too valuable to do so. But as the Redfists numbers will start to grow, his position, and his life, might not be that safe in the future...

Lords of WarCry – Untamed Beasts, Part 1

Dull drumbeats roar across Jagged Savannah of Ghur, calling the barbarian nomads to arms. Wild warcries mingle with the animalistic roar of the great beasts and are barely distinguishable. It's time to go and prove to Archaon the Everchosen as relentless enough to join his legions.

I've got into WarCry, too. I have been skeptical at first, but I could quickly learn a better one at my local dealer with a look in the new box (and in the rule book). The joint project "Lords of WarCry" here at Chaosbunker offers a nice opportunity to document the assembly and the painting of the really extensive box. Since Dennis will be the first to have a go at the buildings and Dino takes on his Orruks warband, I start with the Untamed Beasts warband.

Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 2

Each Ardboy has its own name (even on the underside of the base) and individual character, but all have the same style of paint scheme. I often paint according to certain "recipes", in order to not forget how I did it and to get a homogenous look. With ordinary orcs I wouldn't mind, but Ardboys have a certain talent for discipline and order (in greenskin measures). So I had to be able to create the same colors on more than one model.

For the first two Ardboys I used old blackorcs made of pewter. Although I am not a friend of metal miniatures, these were better for practicing than the new plastic models. The surfaces are clearly divided into chain mail, skin, plates, fabric, belts and teeth.

Morog

A shield wall is a good method to delve deep into the turmoil of battle and the Redfists have almost perfected this method. The shield-bearers push themselves slowly forward in an indicated v-shape, only to suddenly stop, while the boys with the big axes jump over them.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar – Warcry Warband card decks

As I have two warbands with the Warcry starter set, the Untamed Beasts and the Iron Golems, it is time to see how we can get Daniel / Dino involved into this.

The Warcry product range covers card packs for multiple factions from Age of Sigmar, among them currently a total of three for the greenskins. And as Dino has his Hotpawz and Redfists, so we are going to take a closer look into the card pack for the Bonesplitters and Ironjawz.

Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 1

The WarCry hypetrain is in full throttle in the vastness of the internet and we also heard the call to arms in the Chaosbunker. Personally I'm going to work on parts of an old project and continue with it, because I have a lot of unpainted minis lying around at home for Age of Sigmar, but I didn't play anymore after the release of the second edition. Participating in a group project is a good opportunity to reduce the pile of shame a little bitand still have fun.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar – Sigmarite Dais

Terrain is an important part of any game, and I am always keen to see, what interesting pieces can be added to a gamers collection. The Dominion of Sigmar was introduced earlier this year, as fantasy counterpart to the very well done Sectors already available for Warhammer 40,000. Among those temples and shrines in the name of Sigmar is a round plateau, the Sigmarite Dais, which we are going to take a closer look upon today.

This kit belongs to the Dominion of Sigmar, that covers multiple sets of a similar theme, among them a larger set, the Enduring Stormvault, and an "entry level" piece, the Shattered Temple. Along with the Ravaged Lands for Warcry, we see the Shattered Stormvault as well, a terrain set, that will hopefully be covered in a couple of days here as well.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar – Azyrite Townscape

To be added to the Warcry terrain, I got myself the Azyrite Townscape. I had my eyes on the kit for a while now, as it is generic set of ruins and as such can be used for multiple setups.

The Azyrite Townscape is part of the Dominion of Sigmar terrain range and accompanied by two other sets, a smaller one Azyrite Ruins and a larger boxed set Realm of Battle Blasted Hallowheart. The name azyrite comes from Azyr, the celestial realm in the new Age of Sigmar.
