Torhart Shroudkin, Stormcast Eternal Lord-Relictor - part 2




I never really liked the coffin-on-a-stick so here's my Lord-Relictor for Silver Tower (and smaller scale AoS games), now with 2 hammers!

I considered a different option before I settled on the 2nd hammer, I nearly went with an empty hand, but the pose seemed off:


So I made a hammer using (from the Warhammer Chapel OoP scenery kit) and part of the staff from the relic, cut down with the base of the staff moved up to the new base.

Hallow'd Ground, part 6, Game 5: Cut Off the Head

With his last breath, the vile Necromancer cursed the interlopers. Only the enemy leaders’ heads will lift the curse.

~ ~ ~

The Orruk Witch Hunters fortified the abandoned Deathwatch Manor - they planned to make camp for a few days; they boarded up the windows and doors using broken furniture and torn-up floorboards. They chalked symbols of warding and protection from the undead on door and window frames. They drew lots and took turns to stand lookout on the roof of the house, and they spent a few hours looting the house for supplies. They filled all the bottles they found with well water and Grimming blessed them in the name of Sigmork to make bottles of “Holy Water”), and carved stakes from table and chair legs.

They melted-down a handful of silver coins to cast bullets and silver-tipped crossbow bolts. They then ate and drank anything that was still even slightly palatable and settled down to sleep under their coats and cloaks. The Waaagh Priest also wrote out fresh scrolls of protection which they attached to their gear with wax seals.

When the roof-top sentry spotted movement in the Forest of Tears early the next day the Orruk Witch Hunters tumbled out of the Manor house to meet the Church of Sigmar’s Retribution once more!




The Church of Sigmar’s Retribution advanced toward Deathwatch Manor.



The early morning mists swirled around them as the Nachtjägers reached the graveyard. The moans of Deadwalkers just behind them startled them but the Professor turned to face the new foe.



Battle-lines rapidly changed as the Orruk Witch Hunters used the Spirit Gate to make a hazardous journey. They appeared close to the War Priest's flank and surprised him with their audacity!


Fängmorder cut down Avram and threw himself into the Deadwalkers that stumbled across the pumpkin field.


Swarms of Deadwalkers attacked the Black Orruks.



The Brotherhood arrived at the pumpkin field before Fängmorder had dealt with the Dead there.





War Priest Lothar was cut off from his followers and watched helplessly as they were cut down, one after another. He fought his way clear and fled, swearing that his losses would be avenged!

Gangs of Mancunius Dome, Part 4


The Skinny-men are one of the dominant gangs in Mancunius Dome, mostly active in the Sump Crawl area, they are on fairly good terms with the Gothermogs and the Sumptreaders but have a bitter rivalry with the Slipgibbets.

Abraham Moss, House Van Saar Ganger.

Fairly simple paint-job: Black spray undercoat. Grey zenithal spray pre-highlight, lightly drybrushed white to emphasise the edges. Washed with Biel-Tan Green Shade and Nuln Oil Shade. Details like face and shoulder pads painted conventionally: base coat, shade, re-apply base-coat colour, highlight.

The Watch: Konrat and Bogen


The bodyguards of the Archeotech Prospectors group - the wilds of Mancunius Dome are not at all safe, after all. They think of themselves as Skitarii but they are far from it. They are just local thugs in gas-masks who have been hired by Tyloc Heften Haug with the promise of first-pick of any advanced weaponry the Prospectors find. They had a small amount of technical ability when they were first recruited and this has increased by working alongside the more skilled members of the group, but they are still just the hired guns really.

Acolyte Librarians - completed

Aulus & Gellius - Acolyte Librarians - Robed and hooded Tchi'thams Library Assistants, carrying books.
(Flagellants with Grey Knight / Dark Angels books, hooded Skitarii Ranger heads)

A pair of "civilian" low-level Adeptus Mechanicus characters for the Library of Tchi'thams in Mancunius Dome, assistants to Hagel the Librarian.

There are many rumour about the mysterious and heavily fortified Tchi'thams Library. Some speculate that the tomes held within are dangerous heretical books of daemon summoning and binding, or a near-complete STC: printed on ancient yellowing paper and leather-bound. Others blithely state that they are merely ancient historical records dating from the dawn of the Imperium. Either way the local populace like to talk about it occasionally but rarely make any effort to find the truth.



With their master, Hagel the Librarian:
