Who are the Aaronoughts?

Who are the Aaronoughts?

photo frame and college was made using Photo Collage app.

Good question. The Aaronoughts are a band of misfit warriors who have banded together in search of Sigmars Golden Fleece (or fancy Sigmarite cape for those who pray to our gracious god king). The members of the warband come from different realms and races, including an industrialist Orc Boss, a fine beard duar…..Stormcast Eternal, a Fyreslayer (second best beard) and a Tau hybrid with a dryad body (don’t ask me how that happen…..).

However they are not the only ones searching for the fleece, as a philosopher of Azyr once said “every bugger wants somthin”. A Goblin Shaman by the name of Ghanorchaltovalu is a menacing and spiteful little greenskin who has made a cult of his own design. He and his Cultists seek the fleece in Oder to be recognised as an independent society by all of the Grand alliance of Destruction (In Ghanorchaltovalu’s case, building his own twisted empire)

Will the team unite against the forces of the Ghanorchaltovalu and his army of sophisticated and goblins? Will they find the the Fleece in time before the goblin Clan get their grubby goblin fingers on the precious Fleece?

Hello readers, if you have no idea what I’m blabbering on about, let me explain. A week or so ago, I came across a new blog site called The Tales from the Aaronorium, set up by Aaron and the team. It’s a blog site of all things hobby wise, including a series’s on AoS (sort of like the Tale of four Warlords).

So far, I’ve enjoyed reading each of the bloggers posts on their faction for Skirmish, it’s great to see the processes that go into planning and building an army that’s AoS related. So, as (a tribute? Dedication?), I’ve made four digital art paintings of each member of the Tales of the Aaronorium. Below are the digital paintings as well as videos on my process work.

I just want to mention that this post is meant to be a light hearted and fun post, not a spiteful nor hate based post. I was thinking of doing a fun (unofficial) backstory to each character, but that would be crossing the line (Duardin have terrible grudges, especially Aelves!).

Like I’ve mentioned earlier, I really enjoyed reading blog posts and seeing how hobbyists tackle different challenges. It’s inspired me so much that I’m now attempting to finally finish off my Stormcast Eternals army, and get to join in a game of AoS at my local GW store!

With that said, I wish the best of luck to the Aaronites on their journey with their AoS Skirmish collections.

12 days of winter [day 8]: New Retro Gorkamorka (or is it Morkagorka?)

made using Procreate app

The Destruction God of AoS has been rebuilt by the planet Eating Chaos bringer, Unicron. Now, Gorkamorka (or Morkagorka) is reborn as a tetchy upgraded monster with more dakka lasers and ultimate strength compared to the punny Ironjaws Warboss.

(I very much doubt this will happen, but you never know……..😏)

12 days of winter [day 6]: The Grey-mane Dynasty lore series- the art of the Grey-mane, year 1

12 days of winter [day 6]: The Grey-mane Dynasty lore series- the art of the Grey-mane, year 1

This year was the start of a long series of my homebrew lore series on the Grey-mane dynasty for AoS. The lore was planned to tie all of my AoS factions from an origin root that would spread out and build many perspectives from different factions.

However, the story couldn’t be fully realised without the help of visual imagery art. So this year was an effort for me to not only build my lore series, but also to provide visual art of my stories.

Today, I would like to show you guys a whole years worth of art from ‘The Grey-mane Lore Series’, ranging from portrait art of the Grey-manes themselves to the landmarks that define the dynasty’s history and heritage. Enjoy!

Lincoln College Christmas Market Pop up Shop starting Tomorrow!!!

Lincoln College Christmas Market Pop up Shop starting Tomorrow!!!

Tomorrow will be the start of the pop up shop opening day on the 7th, followed by the 8th and 9th of December. Some of my acrylic paintings I’ve done will be printed as cards for the Lincoln Christmas market, at Lincoln College located at Christ’s Hospital Terrace. There will be signs for directions on where to go to visit the Colleges pop up shop.

The cards that I’ll be producing for sale are works that I’ve been doing for my course work. These include two versions of the Lord Tennyson painting (one bright and sharp for the Autumn effect, and one for more mature and closer accuracy to the statues look) as well as an early painting of a British solider at the Lincolnshire life museum.

There are other cards on sale too!

All of the cards you see here are priced at 75p each! Great for Xmas cards and any occasion for card giving (probably not Valentine’s Day……!).

Also, I have prints for sale if anyone prefers to have one of my paintings on their wall. Currently there are two prints available that will be on sale at the Xmas market. Each print costs around £5 each.

There’s a limited run of 9 prints! So it’s a first come first served basis for the prints, as well as the cards you see here. Finally, there’s one framed A4 print that will be on sale for £10.

I hope you can come and visit, wether from around the UK or abroad if you are visiting Lincoln for the Christmas market.

Have a great day, and I’ll be back tomorrow with a new blog post!

[Disclaimer- all sales from the cards that I’ll be producing for sale will not be for personal use, but instead be donated to Lincoln College for materials and equipment]

The Grey-mane Dynasty Lore series guide post

The Grey-mane Dynasty Lore series guide post


Welcome to The Grey-mane Dynasty lore series, a fan made collection of stories in the setting of Warhammer Age of Sigmar. The individual and multipart stories have links to the rise and fall of a once proud and united dynasty, and how it affects those who have survived in the aftermath. 
Each story tells a tale of locations, characters and events that tell of the events from the Age of Myth, to the fall during the Age of Chaos and hope anew in the Age of Sigmar. 

Below are links to the lore series in chronological order:

More stories and fan made lore will be coming soon, which will be added to the link list above. I plan to repost this post when I’ve done a new lore post, so new readers won’t be confused.

I hope to continue this series to the point where I have enough story narrative/ lore content to help me start an AoS campaign, or additional fan made material for AoS games. With your feedback and help, I can be confident and guided on the right path to achieve this goal. 

I hope you have enjoyed this post, if you have questions, advice or anything that comes to mind, post a comment below and I’ll reply back as soon as I can. Thank you!
