Summer of Hobbying 2019: The Skullfiend Tribe army showcase

Summer is here (for me at last), and it’s the start of my second year of Summer of Hobbying.

My first summer on the blog was a when I did my AoS Nurgle Collection with a minimal kitbash of a Great Unclean One using the Maggoth kit. Since then I’ve tried to do a yearly season of hobby challenge.

Last year I did this many models in the summer!

This year there’s going to be some changes to how I’m doing Summer of Hobbying, due to budget constraints and time. So rather than showing nothing, I’ve decided to make this summer a year of showing what I’ve done so far this year. A showcase of army collections that I’ve been working on this year and where they are currently.

So what better way to start off this years recap than my growing power house of slaughter, The Skullfiend Tribe. Enjoy!

The Daemons of Khorne

The Slaves to Darkness of Khorne

The Bloodbound of Khorne

A pretty big collection that’s been going on for about three years now, a slow but growing army that’s reached its end. It used to be the Axes of Skarbrand project until half way through I decided to change it into the Skullfiend Tribe.

I’m happy with the current gathering of the Blades of Khorne army. I do however think that this project has naturally come to the end of its journey. As much as adding new models to the project would be awesome, I think some things have an ending.

The only units I have left to include is my Chaos Troggoth group, with two substitute Troggoths and a Troggoth King.

Once these guys have been base decorated they’ll be added to the Slave of Darkness section. I wanted to add one more substitute Troggoth to the unit but I’d be left with a spare monopose champion. So an understrength unit of 2 out of 3 isn’t as bad.

Would I add anything else before I finish this project? I don’t feel like adding much else to be honest, most of the Blades of Khorne model range doesn’t interest me, most of the designs look too cartoony. It’s just the Endless Spell kit I need now, along with the updated Battletome.

Well that’s it for this army project post, a bloody…. ah never mind I’m getting wooden with my dry humour.

Next up, it’s the Primaris Crimson Fists!

Until next time,
