Bring out your Lead - Friday 2018

This year I had the opportunity to play a bit of a special game, not just because it was at my first BOYL since 2014 but because I travelled up with my Dad, against whom I haven't played Warhammer in the better part of 15 years despite us both painting a significant amount of models in the interim!

Our game wasn't planned out particularly well - we did rather just throw down whatever we had, but it was a cracking day and we managed to wrap it up in a single day!

Heavy Support for the Lizardmen

Just a quick update today to show what I've been adding to my Lizardmen lately. Having finished up a couple of chunky blocks of saurus warriors, I thought it was time to turn to something a bit meatier.

A Year in the Human Sphere

The Human-Sphere wiki is officially a full year old! Can you believe it's been that long already?

I thought this might be a good opportunity to update people on how the site is doing, whether I've met my goals from one month in and what the plans for the future might be.

Coatl Got Your Tongue?

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a .... snake?

This Coatl has been sitting in the pile for a long time as I've been unsure of what scheme I wanted to use on it. But after seeing a beautifully painted example of this mini by Andrew 'Frogg' on the Codex Slann group I knew I had to steal his idea!

Cold-Blooded Ferocity

Things have been pretty quiet here for far too long!

I've had a lot of things going on over winter - trying to sell/buy a house (ongoing), pass exams (successfully), and polish off a D&D campaign amongst them. This has been combined with an absolute varnishing nightmare where every can I've used has ended up frosting, causing a lot of wasted time and reworking. Overall, I just felt I lost my creative mojo a bit which is a great shame as I have some fantastic minis to paint!

But I finally got a big chunk of painting finished off and I'm very happy with my two new units of saurus with spears. There are two fairly chunky 6x3 blocks that will serve as a strong backbone for my army.

Skink High-Priest and Lobotomised Slaves

I've finished up a slightly esoteric unit for my lizardmen army today - a unit of lobotomised slaves and their skink high-priest!

It did feel a bit sacrilegious to remove the original slann inhabitants of the panalquin, but the fan waver at least will likely make an appearance as a standard bearer at some point in the future. I'd love to have had enough slave models for a couple more files of troops, so maybe I'll get a chance to add to this unit in the future.

Skink Culchan Riders

With the release of Total War: Warhammer 2, I've found myself wanting to pick up on an old project - my Lizardman army.

I'd originally started planning to use it as a pure 5th edition army, as that's when I first started playing them, but I'm far more fond of the magic system from 6th onwards and of the rules/flavour from 7th edition. As it is, it's probably going to be a fudged mess of everything from 3rd-8th, with an aim to play it using a post-5th rule set. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Over the years I've collected a wide array of bits and bobs to supplement the scaly horde including a variety of jungle beasties - scorpions, spiders, cotatls, snake/lizard swarms, leeches, snails and even a capybara! The first thing I felt compelled to paint though were some rather esoteric creatures - the Culchans.
