Where are you in your Warhammer life now?

bennymclbennymcl Senior MemberMontreal, CanadaRegistered Users Posts: 2,797
So thanks to the thread started by @CharlotteB CA (which you can find here), I have some more questions regarding your guys' current state of Warhammer-ness.

Personally, I haven't played much in the last 10 years though I started playing 18 years ago. I am originally from Canada and spent most of the last decade travelling Europe and Asia ... so not much time for Warhammer at all! I recently just moved back to Canada (Montreal - Go Habs Go! :)) and on my return, dropped a bomb on buying new Warhammer stuff (seriously, I went all out.) I think I spent close to $2000 just buying all of the converting tools, paints and materials and stuff I would need in order to start my new Vampire Count horde.

I sold most of my models.. Space Marines, Empire, VC, and others back when I left Canada and since I was returning home, I wanted to really re-root myself in my Warhammer ways.

So! Back to the point of the thread. I would love to see what you guys have in your collections in regards to your models! Paint jobs, conversions ... anything!

I have shared an image below of how my vampire army will be themed. I want my army to really look like a long lost dead army that was found by a gang of necromancers and raised up to do their bidding.

It's going to be massively skeleton and wight heavy with no zombies. Every single model will have a conversion done (time consuming project, but I am looking to put more love into the hobby now).

As you can see, the only thing I have kept the same is the base body of the skeletons. I have cut off their old weapons in favour of metal rods with points for spears and have replaced their shield with ones of a more uniformed look than the normal models. The clothes are entirely done from green stuff (this is my free greenstuff clothing conversion so I am pretty happy with the results so far)

Units like the Grave Guard will have more heavy armour and different weapons plus some other things to set them apart!





PLEASE share your own models and conversions. I would love to see what we've got going on for Warhammer hobbyists in this community!

At mods/CA . I am sorry if this is off topic. I know it's not about the game exactly, but it is about Warhammer... haha :D

    Ahh unfortunately my Warhammer life is near its end, but awaiting a time for a mighty resurrection.

    Living in the heartlands of Games Workshop, I loved the community aspect of the war gaming scene. I used to love the HUGE battles my local store had where anyone could come in, was given a unit to control and had to work together as a team to decide the best route to take.

    It really spurred me to collect Eldar, Empire, Vampire & necron armies. I could never afford to build huge armies but enjoyed the collection aspect all the same.

    As I got older, the community aspect of GW really started to decline in favour for a more premium and exclusive group of people (which I hated). This coincided with the growth of online gaming (and general socialising that occurs when you are legally allowed to drink booze).

    As such the models and rule books slowly migrated to boxes in the attic.

    My life support is through good PC games like Dawn of war & Warhammer total war. Likely to be my only interaction with the hobby- at least until GW sort their act out and engage with their community again.

    I know exactly what you mean. I lost that feeling too. But now that I am older and actually in a good spot with life, it's so much easier for me to take small amounts of time (even though I'm pretty much busy flat out 24/7) to do some of the stuff I love with Warhammer. It's always a nice nostalgia feeling when I go back to modelling! I haven't looked into the gaming scene here much since my army isn't complete yet, but I am jealous of you being in the UK haha.. definitely more gamers there than here (though there are quite a number here)

    Nowhere really. I've been a massive fan of Warhammer 40k and Warhammer for years, but it's mostly been just the lore aspect of it. Im my country ( Croatia ) there's not a single official Games workshop store, and all the other hobby stores are mostly situated in large cities and since I live in a little town, it's not affordable to drive just to have a single match etc.

    I also find the hobby to be too expensive for my taste, so I kinda vowed I'll start collecting Chaos and what not once I'm older and have made more money.

    I wouldn't be so sure mate, I pass a GW store every day and I have never seen anyone in there other than the staff. heck, even the London store was dead last time I checked.

    Even online, most of the brilliant social engagement on the hobby- is from US hobbyists.

    Yeah, there are a lot of empty spaces, but there are still tons of people who actually play Warhammer. They are just in their own groups and in other places... GW have not been kind to their own brand in recent years which is why those places are empty I imagine...

    Got into WFRP in 1988 through a friend's recommendation. Bought everything I could lay my hands on and started painting minis (both GW and D&D). Picked up WFB3e in 1991, moved to Toronto and started working on an Undead army just before WFB4e was released. Became a hardcore 4e player in the early 90's, started collecting Empire and Dark Elves, then took a long hiatus starting with 5e to play competitive Star Fleet Battles instead. Returned to Warhammer in mid-2000's with WFB 6e, converted my Undead to Tomb kings and continued plodding away on Empire and Dark Elf stuff.

    I'm a slow painter, so despite my long WFB tenure I only have a 2,500 point Tomb Kings army, and about 1,000 points each of Empire and Dark Elves. I can also cobble together 1,000 points of VC although I'm currently expanding that.

    Here are the Ghouls I was working on in December before setting WFB aside to paint 15mm Carthaginians:



    And here's the pride of my collection - a Knights Panther unit that I painted on-and-off over a 15 year period. The freehand work on the barding, shields and banner isn't great by some peoples' standards but it took a lot of time and patience for me.

  • bennymclbennymcl Senior Member Montreal, CanadaRegistered Users Posts: 2,797
    @Herr Arnulfe Awesome! I love those nights. the free hand painting on the shields and lettering on the barding is really well done!

    Great seeing the model pics! Thanks for sharing these. Having painted a fair number myself, I can appreciate the time and detail it takes to paint them to that high quality.

    I've painted the base set of Age of Sigmar, but so far I haven't seen much momentum for the new rules. I don't see much tabletop gaming in my future, but model painting for its own sake is worthwhile for me. As for the gaming part, I've got Total War to look forward to!

    Thanks for the comments on the KP. Here are some of my monsters, the Swamp Minotaur of Nurgle (painted in the 90's) and Tomb King Ushabti (painted last year). They look better in real life, honest, the photos don't do them justice. :smile: )

    That's a great lookin mino.

    Have you ever done snow basing? I have done some pretty cool basing techniques in the past, but never snow. Thinking about doing snow for my next army!

    Never tried snow, I'm pretty conservative with basing because I want all my armies to look good together on a standard green playing surface, even the Tomb Kings. My Nurgle figures have some mud and slime on their bases but that's about it. There is a model snow powder that you can buy - might look really cool to have a Warriors of Chaos army dusted with snow.

    Yeah I actually have some of the snow powder I intend to test on my skellies =D

    Careful with the snow then, your skellies might get lost against their bases if the bone colour is too white. Perhaps a yellowish or reddish hue to the bone would help them stand out. Adding clothing and armour with greenstuff like you're doing will help, although it seems like an awful lot of work! Great job on it though.

    Yeah, it's a ton of work, but it's SO satisfying when you finish it and it doesn't look like a hunk of green poo... lol

    The snow will be more or less just spotted on darker grey rocks with small patches of static grass as well... so it will be like the snow is melting and the army is finally set free ... something like that :p

    Awesome models. It makes me wonder what would happen if a gaming company was able to just create the base model but then hand out/run a competition for the best of the community to do the 'painting' that gets used in the game. Of course I guess people would want to start getting paid.

    I am currently continuing as if AoS never happened.. which means I paint and get (very few) games in whenever the kids allow me a minuscule amount of time.

    I am working on completing (ie making proper 8th edition armies) out of all the armies myself and my brother started collecting some 20 years back. Between us we have pretty large Orc & Goblin, Warriors of Chaos, High Elf, Dwarf, Empire, Vampire Count & Daemons armies. I have just started collecting some Chaos Dwarfs too.

    So this involved a mixture of painting new stuff & repainting minis which I did when I was 10. You can find a few examples on my paint blog on warseer (if warseer ever returns from the dead) or failing that my photo bucket if you wish :)

    Very cool minis, you guys have some serious talent. That's probably the best version of the goofy old Nagash model that I've ever seen.

    That old Nagash model DOES look great. I love that old model haha.

    Haha I am doing the same thing regarding AoS. I heard about 9th actually. Apparently there is a group of gamers in Europe creating 9th edition rules? I am pretty interested in checking those out too. To hell with AoS lol

    Your models look great! I love the detail on their eyes and the free hand painting on the Phoenix Guard's cloaks!

    Are those sword masters a before/after the repainting? lol Big difference! The new ones look really fantastic.

    Also, your terrain building skills are awesome. I have never attempted to build terrain myself, but I am in the process of getting my own uber gaming table up and that would mean making terrain. Would love to pick your brain regarding tips you may have for that stuff!!

    Thanks for sharing :D

    I started in 96' And once GW released this new warhammer garbage.... I kind of lost interest in the tabletop .

    Seemingly overnight they ended WHFB at 8th edition. I was so eagerly awaiting the new rumored Bretonnian book because that was my starter army and I had amasses quite a collection over the years only to have them cancelled. But my true love lies in the Dark Elves, I had amassed close to 14k points and loved the lore, especially Malus Darkblade. The most fun I had while playing was when a good core group of us that all worked in the military together started a 10 player "Generals Compendium and Blood in the Badlands Campaign" The campaign took a little over 8 months to complete which included sieges (every player created their own stronghold to match their race) and unique "generals" that didn't count towards points costs per battle and leveled up. It literally war a table top total war warhammer!

    Ill add photo after my business trip ends.

    Why not get into the 9th Edition?

    I will definitely let you know. I am really looking seriously into building a massively customised gaming table as well. It will have inserts and customisation for Warhamer, poker, DnD, etc :D
  • Sabor444#1932Sabor444#1932 Registered Users Posts: 589
    Well a few years back I looked at Necrons for Warhammer 40k, I had gone through a bad break up and soul less, emotionless, robots hellbent on purging the galaxy of all life were right up my ally. So I got into 40k, build hundreds of models and still collect to this day.

    Warhammer Fantasy is a different matter entirely though, the place i play I saw people play fantasy quite often, but it never really interested me. That was until the End Times started to roll out with Nagash, and initially I didn't care it was just another thing GW was trying to get me to buy. Then I saw the model for Nagash...

    Nagash, Supreme Lord of the Undead

    So seeing this I was hooked, by local gaming store still had a copy of the collectors edition which i scooped up and I don't think I ever enjoyed reading a lore book so much. From there I was starving for more lore and bought the vampire codex and started building my fantasy army. For Christmas that year I got a corpse cart, 40 zombies, 30 skeletons, a vampire on a zombie dragon, a mortis engine, 10 grave guard, and 10 dire wolves. I started to put together my army and realized i had alot of work to get a full army together. The End Times rolled on though, I was enthralled in the lore...but then Archaon came out....

    The world I had fallen in love with, the grim dark setting that ripped hope apart and spit it out, was destroyed. The characters I had known and read about for months were gone...The feeling i had when i had bought a Nagash model literally less than a month earlier ate at me. To put it lightly I was more than a tidbit disappointed that i had dropped over 700 dollars into this now and everything i was building towards was wiped out.

    There was hope though! Age of Sigmar it promised to breathe new life into the series! New models, better balanced rules, and a wider appeal to a broader audience! For those of you know that play the game (in my case anyway) all of this was a lie, the great lore I had come to enjoy was now mediocre at its best. So with a heavy sigh, i boxed up all my Warhammer fantasy stuff to be put together at a later. Hopefully after an update to Sigmar I actually enjoy, but so far no luck, three of my friends sold their armies and that was that. Even still I absolutely adore the models and still proudly flip through my Nagash book smiling as I reread the stories of death that spread across the world.

    Quite a story. You're actually lucky you just got into it when they decided to rip it apart. I have followed and loved the lore for over 15 years now and when I heard about what they were doing, I legitimately got upset. I've explained in other posts just how terrible it was that GW did this. They had a total disregard for EVERYONE playing WHFB... they could easily have just not published anything else for the WHFB universe and just made an alternate one with the new models. Hell, the AoS stuff doesn't even LOOK like fantasy any more. I have seen more people buy Sigmarites for Space Marine conversions than to actually use them LELS!!!!

    I'm glad you picked VC. Smart smart. On a more upbeat note, take a look at this

    http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2015/09/warhammer-fantasy-9th-edition-by-fans-for-fans.html

    It's a group of gamers out of Europe who are actually making a 9th edition ruleset! More balanced and updated than 8th apparently. I personally haven't taken a look at it yet, but I would recommend checking it out.

    In all honesty, there is no reason to box them up! The majority of WHFB players are still playing 8th... AoS is a total flop and won't last long imo. They can try to push it as much as they want, but they are fools if they think it will ever replace WHFB. Lore was a massive part of what made the game great and they've gotten rid of it.

    Also, as far as I can tell, AoS rules play out a lot like Lord of the Rings... and that game wasn't very popular either I do recall... Can't imagine what possessed them!... I've also heard lots of people complaining about balance issues with AoS as well. I just see no merit in it at all.

    Well, at least we have eBay and at least we can always use older rulesets :)
  • horace35horace35 Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 201
    Indeed, there is nothing forcing you to play AoS. There are many great editions of Warhammer to play, I suggest you pick the one you enjoy the most and roll with that, or jump onboard with the 9th age people. Personally I am happy with the 8th edition rules, I like the hardback books etc and so am just going to continue on with that
