I've also re-based the spearmen so that the bases are more cohesive.

All together they are 500 points, my pledge for April is 10 Black Guard and a sorceress.

These old models look so great - I really love how this is coming together. Such a nice army.

It's quiet around here.

I've been working on my next unit for this month's pledge. It's a unit of ten of Black Guard.

It's a shame about the fifth edition models not having a lot of command models. To get around this I've had to do a little converting.

Image

The unit is almost finished, most of the colours are done, quite a bit of tidying up to do and of course they need snow on the bases.

I will not say this about all the minies, but I definitively like the old executions and spearmen better. Deffinitly like the paint job

Looking great! I think these 5th Ed models are dope, I got lucky and found a 5th Ed CoK in the bits box for $1 only missing an upper jaw/face (of the cold one), and as luck would have it there was another cold one missing a tail also for $1. Love the style of that era.

I can only agree these guys look great. At least you make them so! Well done!

Thanks, they are on my 'to do' list a little later on.

Here's the second half of this month's pledge, a Sorceress (proxy).

This gives me the chance to think about what will come next month :-)

Hope you like him :-)

Thanks.

I'm being brave lol. I thought I'd give it a try seeing as you can use round bases in Age of Sigmar, plus the fact that it gave me lots of room to tart it up a bit :-)

I was a bit late starting the 250 points for May, but I've got the colour scheme sorted.

I just need to find a suitable champion and finish these executioners off, then I need to do a Death Hag to make up the points,

I've got 9 of the Executioners finished so far, the only thing with this release is the lack of command figures so I've had to resort to using the current plastics for a champion which will come a bit later.

the army so far.....

Amazing work! You have really breathed new life into old models! I was always very negative about the old elf models, they always looked too squat and heavy to me, I love the plastics, their movement and lithe-ness. the way you present these though, they look like heavily armed and armored elves, ready to ruin someones day. Big fan mate, really good job!

Thanks you sir. They were the limited edition Executioners from a Games Day in the USA back in the day.

I've finished the Death Hag so that's the 250 points pledge for May done. That leaves about 4 days to finish the 250 points for June lol, don't think that will happen :-)

Hope you like her :-)

She is awesome - you have a very rare piece there (She was unreleased)!

I have one myself not painted yet - the perfect addition to your army.

Thanks, yeah she is rare. One of the unreleased Sorceresses.

It was dilemma for me to paint or not, but I'm glad I did now.
