A New Master (or Two)

In most hobbyist lives, real life has a habit of getting in the way and stops us from doing what we enjoy. but with that some what under control i can return to painting on a regular basis and kick start this blog again. since my last post which was in the thick of the end times, A lot has changed. The warhammer world as we knew it, is no more. mighty hero's have fallen, some have remained and the god emperor himself has returned in this new age. the Age of Sigmar.

With the release of age of Sigmar rule set my undead have gone on hold as I'm not sure how to proceed with them at this current time, mean while the creative juices have been flowing with a new release from Games Workshop that immediately caught my eye. The Ironjawz. the new sculpts look amazing, really capturing the characteristics of an orruk - big, tough, brutal and ready to punch someone in the face.

After flicking through the battle tome and picking up a mega boss on foot and a box of brutes, I set to work - first up colours. I really liked the yellow scheme that the GW studio has used but as i already have 2 yellow armies for 40k. I wanted something different so i would burn out painting. I decided on Zedeks Weirdladz. One because i have never painted an orange army before so it would be a challenge for me and two because of the little blurb about them from the battle tome.

"Zedek's weirdladz are led by the Weirdnob shaman Zedek, who is well known for setting things on fire, mostly on purpose. The warclans orange and black armour makes the few inevitable burning orruks less distracting as their mobs charge into battle. "
