Manfred Mortarch of Night Conversion

FrontSide_

This is the blog post for my long time secret, recently revealed, conversion project I had been doing.  I have been working on this guy on and off for about a year and finally have the modeling pretty well done.  This is the sum up what I did as well as my thoughts making this guy.

Escalation League – Undead Legion Pt. 1

Over the next 3-4 months I’m going to be building out my Undead Legion army as part of our local Escalation League. I’ve not done an escalation league before but anything that adds variety to the hobby is ok by me. I’m not familiar enough on how others do escalation, but basically we are building/painting/playing 500pts/month. In January we’ll play 500pt games, February 1000pt, etc. And I’m taking on a pretty ambitious project with the theme of this army.

Episode 56: Lords of Undeath

Episode 56

The hosts get together to discuss the new hotness, Nagash and Warhammer: The End Times. A very opinionated discussion about the various changes and differences that are happening both in the fluff in this first addition to Warhammer with the End Times as well as new rules that are posed.

The hosts also discuss a new contest. To get the details though, you’ll just need to listen to the episode. We will tell you that one of the prizes in the drawing will be a brand new, still in shrink wrap copy of the spell cards for the Lore of Undeath! We will be drawing for a winner in this contest on Halloween 2014. Good luck!

Code Name: Santa’s Slay

This project was mentioned in Episodes 54 and 55 as a conversion project I was working on at the time.  In Episode 55 I gave it the code name of Santa’s Slay for fun but as you can see it is my Black Coach.  It took quite a while to get all the little bits done but overall it is a pretty simple conversion.

Mortarch of Nagash Unboxing

[singlepic id=932 w= h= float=right] Well, another week of releases and now we have the dreaded Mortarch’s of Nagash out. His mightiest of his Mortarch’s ride these giant terrifying mounts, which are new for them and something you don’t have an option for in their respective army books. These models all look pretty close to the same, but they have enough bits to make each one’s mount unique. Each rider has their own bits to make the models really unique.

What really had me intrigued about this kit was whether or not I could snag enough of the Arkhan the black bits to make an actual infantry version of the model for use with my Tomb King army when the rules for the army of undeath isn’t legal. Looking at the bits, it looks like this is definitely very viable as an option, but there is going to be some significant work adjusting the model or finding a set of legs that I can use to mount the figure on that will fit the figure well enough. Might just be a spot for me to work in some of those new sculpting skills.
