- Rising from the Ashes -  A Ninth Age Blogsam585 08-16-2016

Hello, and welcome to my new blog. I dropped off after Age of Sigmar decimated my local community. I took my old Chaos Dwarfs and played around a little bit with both kings of war and Age of Sigmar systems, but later shelved my Chaos Dwarfs completely, the game just was not the same. Then just a few months ago, my home burned down, and I lost my painted chaos dwarfs and most of everything else in the fire. In addition, I learned that a local game club is going to host their yearly monster mash fantasy tournament (they did not do this year before) and use the ninth age rule set. Thus I felt it was the perfect time to start a new blog, for my Ninth Age chaos dwarfs!

Thank you for taking the time to read my introduction, updates to follow soon.

RE: - Rising from the Ashes -  A Ninth Age Blogsam585 08-16-2016

First update to my blog, my purchase for the new army.




It took me quite some time to finally decide on what exactly I wanted to get. The Ninth Age has changed so much on how our army performs, and added alot of new units but this is the list that I have come up with:

++Prophet++ (255 points) Purchased
Infernal weapon
Hardened Shield
Talisman of Shielding
Wand of Stability
undecided on spell lore

++Overlord++ (228 points) Purchased
Shield
Infernal Weapon
Skullsplitter Sorcerer
Dragonmantle
Gemstone

-483 points in lords-

++Vizier BSB++ (177 points) Purchased
Tricksters helm
Shield
Dawnstone
infernal weapon

++Hobgoblin Khan++ 82pts Pending
Wolf
Lucky Shield
Light Armor
Hero Sword


--259 points--

[28]Firegalives- 506 points Purchased
FCMD
Granite Standard

[20] Hobgoblins -105 Pending
Shields, Handweapoms, Bows
Musician

--611--

[19] Ironsworn 320 pts Purchased
FCMD
Razor Standard


--320--

325 pts K'daii Pending
--325--

Total:
1998

I always loved infernal guard, but running them before proved uneconomical, and they were generally pretty bad. But now, we have a combat lord that gives his unit hatred. BS 4 Infernal Guard, cheaper ironsworn, we no longer suffer stand and shoot penalties, a charge bonus, and a K'daii with a 5+ armor save and 4++ ward. Thus I went with what I know, and also what I liked. The general idea for this army is to advance onto the enemy shooting away with that very nice BS4, covering the K'daii's advance. Additionally the Hobgoblin Khan will provide a decent amount of support for the big beast boasting 4 strength 5 attacksEvil idea.

 For all the pending models, I have to check if I was lucky enough to have stored those models at my local shop and not my home.

Glad you`re taking the chance to build a new army Cheers!.
Probably your list will not completely stay as it is but all models are a very good base for building a force.

To my surprise I found these treasures.



I remember using them earlier in the year
the blue slaughterbrute for testing out my airbrush and the goblins were primed for kings of war but never happened to finish them. Additionally 2 of my khans, my most favorite khans, also found their way into the box.  So now I have all the pending models, and something to paint up while I wait for my other dwarfs. I think I will do the slaughterbrute first as my K'daii.

RE: - Rising from the Ashes -  A Ninth Age Blogsam585 08-18-2016

Here is my first painted (repainted) model for my ninth age army. A Kadim Titan (K'daii destroyer) I painted it mostly with an airbrush .30 mm Iwata eclipse, going back with a fine brush with just black to add more contrasting highlights to make him pop a little bit more. The actual model is a slaughterbrute with the optional head, the horn like bit comes from the mutalith vortex, vortex part, it is a pretty nice bit since it already has flames coming off of it. The other flames i sculpted with "grey" stuff, it was a much harder more durable epoxy and kept the shape of flames better.









My dwarfs should arrive Tuesday, I am going to try to get to the hobgoblins this weekend Evil idea

A really great start to your new army, superb to see.
I think the airbrush is fine for monsters and the like. The colors blend very soft.
Cheers!

WiP of my Hobgoblin unit.



So far painted with only washes, have been quite busy working on commissions for other people, but managed to get the base of these models done Happy

Primed with the army painter, and then colored with washes. The Legion of Azgorh should land on my doorstep tomorrow.

Sad to hear of the fire at your house. It's quite a fear of mine ( not for my stuff which can be replaced but for my dogs and parrot).
Excellent work on the big beasty. I never really got on with airbrushes and I suppose I'm a little stuck in my ways to change. Those Hobgoblins look like they're going to be cracking as well.
Just one thing, have you got a lighter picture of the big fella?

I went ahead and edited the photo of the K'daii to take out the darkness of the model, this is pretty much what it looks like in person. Big Grin

Additionally the Hobgoblins have been completed, and based.  I am glad I only had 20 to paint, these things were pretty boring.


(These came out really dark, I will fix it next time)

And lastly my Legion has arrived, building them up now, and hopefully a game on friday.

That lighter picture of the K'daii confirmed what I thought.......VERY NICE INDEED! I love the smooth colours you can get using an airbrush ( I might have to give the airbrush another go but I have got a feeling that I'll be sticking to brushes)
I like the choice of colours on the Hobgoblins. They look like a proper rag-tag "slave race" rather than a neat regimented unit.
Interesting that you undercoated the CD's in silver as I've started to do this to save time. Look forward to seeing them finished.

Airbrush is nice, I am just now getting the hang of it. The hardest part about doing the airbrush is cleaning it (cleaning takes up most of your painting time) that and getting the hang of mauvering your model to minimize overspray. I had to force myself to use it when I first got it, but it was worth it, you can do some awesome things with an airbrush, that would be too difficult to replicate with a brush.
