After a long time away, I return to find there’s a shiny new forum and all sorts! This is crazy cool!
So in a former life (you might have known me as TallForADuardin), I put together a Legion of Azgorh army entirely from GW Plastics and greenstuff, because I was poor and didn’t want to be a crappy recaster. Looked a little like this:
It was my first Armies on Parade entry and it netted a buttload of prizes at my local store, #humblebrag. I was super proud of it, though in hindsight I can see a lot of places I’d now improve. Sadly, I then sold it to pay for tasty crunchy medication (though very much not complaining, it’s done wonders!).
Aaanyway, this morning I got an notification telling me this place existed, and the small grumpy chap at the back of my mind decided it might be fun to reclaim the glories of old. I don’t know if I’ll remake everything exactly as it was - some of it I think was almost perfect (those K’daai, the Taurus Sorceror) and some I think I’d like to change. If nothing else, it’ll be fun to come up with new ideas, not just slavishly recreate the past. There’s also loads more kits to choose from now!
So that’s the plan! There’s no time scale, I haven’t even decided exactly what I’m going to do yet, but my parameters I think will remain the same:
- Built for AoS, because that’s what most folks play in these parts.
- Every model a conversion - no stock miniatures.
- Every part of every model either a GW miniature or my own sculpting.
- Not relying on my 3D printer, unless it’s a part I’ve designed myself (I’ve got way too reliant on printing others’ work!).
All the above will mean it’s store and WHW legal, as well as posing a really interesting challenge to me. In the mean time, I’m going to scrapbook, throw some ideas together, and probably pick up some of those ubiquitous hobgrots because they’re cheap as chips on ebay!
