Warhammer 40K 8th Edition: A Better Version of Age of Sigmar

It's convention season, and I've been super busy with terrain commissions, which means I've been neglecting my blog, and I've barely had time to work on any personal projects.

 

 

Even making new products for Skull Forge Scenics is on hold s I work to hit my deadlines. But the store is still open, and my entire range of graveyard scenery is available, so check it out if you haven't already. Thanks to everyone who has supported me in this endeavor. I hope you're all enjoying your scenery! It's always exciting when I see one of my pieces worked into someone's conversion on the Age of Sigmar groups.

I have been following the developments and rumors of the new edition of 40K, and now that it's here, my predictions seem to have come true (mostly).

Road to Armageddon: My Kill Team

Work has been occupying most of my time, so it's been a while since I've blogged. But here's a quick post about the background of my Shadow War: Armageddon kill team, and the first two models that I've finished:

Road to Armageddon: Assembling the Team

My Sisters of Battle are gearing up for the Shadow War: Armageddon campaign. I have a limited supply of parts and models to pull from; I don't want to scour eBay for odd models or buy entire units from GW. If they release new Adepta Sororitas kits, fine, but for now I'll have to settle for kit-bashing my kill team.


Angelica Weiss, Sister Superior


This model was almost ready to go. I had built her as a custom special character for my Black Templars. She would accompany the Emperor's Champion, and could weild the black sword if he ever fell in combat (hence the black sword in her hand). I'll work that into the kill team's backstory– more on that in a future post. Her starting equipment is a combat blade and a storm bolter with a red-dot laser sight.

Dark Age Crystal Caverns

Along with the Wrath of Kings board, the guys at CMON also commissioned me to build a board for the Dark Age miniatures game. They wanted a 4' x 4' cavern filled with glowing crystals, bottomless pits, and acid pools.



 

I drew a lot of inspiration from the natural caverns I'd visited in the past for the shape and color of the stalagmites and columns. The table came together over the course of a few months. Here's a little peek behind the scenes...
