Things are slowly getting back to normal (well almost…) now that my winter bug has gone for good. With joyous delight I’ve started to build up my court with additional model from the ‘start collecting’ battalion for the Flesh-Eater Courts.
The collection is currently in work in progress, mainly because I don’t have my second battleline for a full 1,000pt army to play. Therefore, once I’ve added additional units of Crypt ghouls into the army I’ll be happy enough to use it in AOS games.
Collection so far:
The rumour of King Rens rise to dominance
King Ren of the Liverbone court rides upon his Behemoth to war against any who dares enter his land without trade of diplomacy (basically, trading human cattle for enterance and a truce). He was called Ren Ashtheon in the Age of Myth, who once ruled a small kingdom in Aqshy until the Age of Chaos arrived. Escaping with his life, the king was lost on the wastelands for days, months even years. He feasted on his own kin to survive and journey on in the never ending realm, until he met a dying Ghoul from an aftermath of a battle that took place not too long ago. The Ghoul king blessed him with his sickly black magic, ascending the Ren to a true Ghoul king. With his apotheosis and delusional thirst for battle, he was henceforth known as Ren Liverbone, and amassed an army ready for war to take back his kingdom from Chaos.
The Terrorgheist is still a work in progress on painting the model, but looks impressive so far. Once the Terrorgheist is completed, I’ll be painting the Ghoul king separately to avoid complication. He’ll be riding the behemoth to war as my general for the army, for both pitched battles and path to glory campagin.
Crypt Haunters and Crypt Infernal Coutiers
The Crypt Haunters are slightly altered to have their heads be similar to the Ogre ghouls, showing a dramatical change from their hefty big size to a thin body with bones sprouting out. I like how the Haunters look a lot more untaural for their faces being Ogre like with thin bodies that looks deformed from years of depraved feasting on the battle field. The Infernal is nothing new, apart from a bit of an alteration to fit the small wings on its shoulders ( I’ve kinda made the wrong model body for the Infernal, but my creative skills did its best at making an Infernal anyway).
Crypt Ghouls and Crypt Ghast Courtiers
The first set of ten Crypt ghoul models were made into a unit of six, and two Crypt Ghast Courtiers. There’s another unit ten Ghouls to assemble for the first of three units. Hopefully I’ll be able to make unit of thirty Ghouls to get the most out of their attacks.
These were shown in a previous post not too long ago, now in progress of being painted in the colours of death! (Que over dramatic drum beat). The unit leader is already completed and looking gruesome from his bloodsoaked mutated hands. The rest will be done after painting my Terrorgheist, outcoming in a full unit of six models of Crypt Horrors that’ll feast on my opponents infantry for supper (no matter wether its flesh, rotten flesh, bones, bark or warp forms).
I hope you guys have enjoyed this post, and hope you all have a happy new year! ☺
