The Black Coach of Baron Thaddius Finch

Baron Thaddius Finch was once a crusader bringing the light of Sigmar to the far corners of the Mortal Realms. That was until he overreached his abilities. Near a realm gate to Shyish he encounter a powerful vampire lord and exhausted and bloody was transformed into the thing he hated the most, an undead revenant. Since that day over a hundred years have passed and the man who once sacrificed in Sigmar's name has murdered countless innocents in the name of his new master Nagash. The baron prefers to travel by coach, a throwback to his noble birth, and on occasion when he needs to regain his power he takes his coach to the fields of slaughter, soaking in the fell sorceries of his nefarious servants.

Lord Baltazar Khepri, Master of the Order of the Coptic Stag

As promised I present my first new AoS post.
Lord Baltazar Khepri, Master of the Order of the Coptic Stag. Once the leader of an order of knights dedicated to seeking out and ridding the world of ancient necromantic lore Baltazar delved deep into the mysteries of ancient Khemri and unlocked secrets not known since the time of the Black Pyramid. Baltazar eventually corrupted the rest of the order and one by one the knights were turned to a new purpose and became lifeless corpses serving Baltazar Khepri in gathering lost necromantic texts for safe keeping. Once the Order was wholly converted Khepri presented them in their entirety to Arkhan the Black to serve as his personal guards. He has remained Arkhan's loyal servant ever since.

I'm still other forms.

Hello everyone. I have two announcements.  Sorry there haven't been any updates in a while. As I've told you all a few times my computer died and I didn't want to use my phone for photos. First announcement: I just bought a computer so I will begin updating again. Second announcement: I will begin posting Age of Sigmar posts. I know many of you don't like the new models or game, but after they released the points system the game has improved. I like a lot of the new models as well. There is a fan made expansion(?) that is currently being played called Hinterlands. It is a skirmish campaign style game and it is my favorite skirmish system so far. It is simpler than Mordheim and more detailed and individualized than Frostgrave. There is a group that has sprung up from it called AoS28. Some of you may be familiar with Inquisimunda. Well this is the fantasy equivalent. It is all about the darker aspects of fantasy and is also known as the Dark Age of Sigmar. I will be posting pictures of my Tzeentchian warband as I take them. I will also continue my tradition of posting a continuing story about them. I am also working on an undead army which I will post as I work on it. Thank you everyone who sticks with me.

Brotherhood of the Crow part 34

I'm still working on getting a new computer so it's more phone pictures for now.
Here is my beloved army standard bearer.
I decided to go with an old style feel. I've always loved Blanche's use of the Mona Lisa in his paintings so I decided to continue that tradition. At first I was planning on painting both sides of the banner with the same image. Unfortunately not only is that a pain, it is also more fun to paint two different images. For the second image I decided to recreate an Ian Miller painting, which I recently purchased. (More on that in a future post.) I decided to do a step by step on the paintings.

 The second painting took fewer steps.

 The final product.

Brotherhood of the Crow part 33

I wanted to take better pictures of this model, but until I get a new computer this will have to do. This is my Fimir champion conversion. I hope you enjoy.

Brotherhood of the Crow part 32

I have so many miniatures in line to paint right now it's driving me crazy. A palanquin, three trolls, several champions, a few chaos marauders and a plague cart. I want to paint so bad, but my with my move going on I haven't been able to start on anything. So I've been greenstuffing gaps and cleaning mold lines. Lately though I did a little conversion on one of my champions. I turned him into a Fimir: Fimm champion. I'm currently working on his tail, but his face is done.

Brotherhood of the Crow part 31

As promised in my last post this post is dedicated to a labor of love 26 years in the making. It all began in 1990 when, at 11, I got the legendary tomb Realm of Chaos: Lost and the Damned. It has been with me ever since. I have not let it leave my sight since the day I got it. One of the entries in it is the War Altar of Nurgle. Like a lot of people I enjoy the pageantry of Nurgle and I've always wanted to make an altar for my favorite Chaos god, especially after looking at the amazing one in LatD for so long. I've had a few false starts over the years and this project might have gone the same way if not for three special people who made it possible. In no particular order: Andrew Dyer, Richard "Orcland" Hale, from Stuff of Legends, and a local friend Evan for their contributions to what has become my crowning achievement, as far as I'm concerned, thank you guys so much. I couldn't have done it without you. So enough lead in, here is the main event. I hope you enjoy it. My scratch built War Altar of Nurgle.

Some of you may recognize a few of the figures on this from Oldhammer weekend, which unfortunately I was unable to attend, for the second year in a row. :( Also the first person who can tell me what the main symbol on the white banner is gets 10 points for their house.
