Fantasy Friday: Prepping for Age of Sigmar 2.0

Age of Sigmar 2.0 is launching tomorrow (officially) and the excitement is palpable all over. I am trying hard to get a 2,000 point Ironjawz army painted so I can play with confidence and provide a good example for new players.

I took a photo last weekend of our game - please forgive the unpainted mess. I have a huge amount of Ardboyz to paint that you can see on the left side. I also have some Brutes to paint and then I should be good for 2,000 points!

Here you can see the two units I have to paint. Lots of models, but Ardboyz are pretty simple.

I bought this Tablewar case at AdeptiCon and I couldn't be happier with it. I put three magnets on each infantry model and they stick to the sheets really well. I have just enough room for all the Ardboyz in there so this fits my 2,000 points. I like it better than foam for GW models now because they're all getting huge and pointy and wispy.

I finally got my Mawkrusha painted and I'm really happy with him! I used Vallejo Jade Green for the monster itself and then washed him with GW green washes to show detail. It wasn't my favorite model to paint - I wish I hadn't put it together first. There were a lot of spots that were hard to get to.

I've wanted to paint my Fungoid Shaman since I first got him but man, he was tough. A lot of detail hidden behind other pieces. So much so that I had to take the model apart and paint it in pieces, unfortunately. I am not really very happy with the paint job, but I'm happy it's done.

I actually like my paint on this Weirdknob shaman much better than the Fungoid, but in my opinion his rules aren't nearly as great. I used him as my warband leader in Skirmish and he did alright. Looking forward to slinging some endless spells.

One of the first models I painted - my Megaboss. I love this model - and I hope he's better in the new edition. For 1,000 points he works really well as my general.

My gore gruntas are some of my favorite models. I love how huge they are. I wish they did better in close combat but... they're amazing models so I have to use them. I actually have six more to paint at some point, but they are absolutely awful to paint. Lots of hidden detail and the bodies are attached to the mounts.

My battleline troops, Brutes. I love these models and to be honest they're why I started buying Age of Sigmar stuff. I'm very happy with how they turned out and will have ten more painted this summer with two handed weapons.

Check out more of our Age of Sigmar 2.0 coverage coming soon!
