VOTE – Stormcast Scheme for Stormbringer

I’ve had many responses to my question on whether I should follow the Magazine steps or create my own using an original scheme. The opinion was unanimous in that I should create a guide for an original scheme.

Therefore I have come up with some designs below. These aren’t all original and one or two are other GW stormhost, but I thought I would include these in case people wanted a guide on those.

Below are all the schemes followed by a poll at the end.

Scheme 1 – Celestial Warbringers (GW Scheme)

There we have it. Ten schemes, five by GW and five by myself. All you have to do is vote for your favourite. I’m going to leave this poll pinned to the top o

My Stormbringer Subscription

I have decided to shell out and go for the Stormbringer magazine. This will allow me to bump up the numbers of Orruks I have at a fairly substantial rate.

But I’ve been wondering what I should do with the Stormcast. How should I paint them? What should I do when I have painted them etc etc etc.

So my first question on the matter of the subscription is would you all like me to follow the colour guides and painting guides given in the magazine’s or should I use a different set of colours for each army? Also, should I follow the guides precisely to show how the collection progresses using the guides from the magazine?

A Painting Guide from the Premium Magazine for Mortal Realms

If we decide to go for a different colour scheme to the guides should I produce my own weekly guides on how I used the paints supplied?

What do YOU think?

These decisions are all with you!

Stormbringer – AoS Part Works

Hachette have recently announced another Age of Sigmar part build, which will be their fourth working with Games Workshop following the successes of their previous collaborations.

Caution! Here be Dragons

Stormbringer is based around the Dominion box set, with a lot of additions (yes, including dragons!). The main antagonists of the series will be the Orruks against the Stormcast Eternals.

While aimed at attracting new members to the hobby, these part work series are always a great way to pick up some of the models you need for a lot cheaper than the RRP.

As with the previous collections, they’ll be 80 issues with the first two priced at £2.99 and £5.99 respectively followed by £8.99 an issue after that. Like the previous collections they’ll also be issued weekly.

The first four issues include:

  • Issue 1 – Orruk Killaboss with Stab-Grot and Knight-Arcanum (and dice) and battle mat) for £2.99
  • Issue 2 – 10x Gutrippas with stikkas for £5.99
  • Issue 3 – 5x Stormcast Vindicators for £8.99
  • Issue 4 – A paint special with Retributor Armour, Leadbelcher, Kantor Blue and Orruk Flesh all included.

That’s great value for money if you collect either of those armies already! Here at Woehammer I’m considering signing up for the magazine myself to give us two ‘Studio’ armies at the end of the run.

For the premium subscription (£2 per issue) you’ll also get four additional magazine with extra models. These being Yndrasta, Killaboss on Great Gnashtoof, Grundstok Gunhauler and Dankboss Troggoth.

While it’s available in newsagents from today, you’ll only be able to get your hands on the first four issues until they confirm there is enough interest in the subscription. So you likely won’t receive any other issues until the Summer.
