Just a quick one today – this is where I’ve been putting my hobby time recently: I’ve been painting Stormcast Eternals for my order army! Mostly I have devoted my time to starting the slow and gradual process of NMMing (Non-Metallic-Metal) my Judicators. I’ve actually been stippling them – in a bastardisation of the techniques learned at the David Soper masterclass. The techy painting is really pushing me and I’m finding it quite difficult, as I’m learning my way round a new technique whilst trying to adapt it to ensure I don’t spend 20hours on each model! The aim here is 3hours or less for each ‘Battleline’ troop, maybe 4hours or less for fancier Paladins. I’ve also done a little more work on my Elf Mage/Battlemage Farseer conversion.
I had so much fun at Warhammer Worlds Heat 3 playing my janky High Elf Dragon list that I’ve decided to continue working on The (turquoise) Twilight Host! I’m looking for excuses to use nice plastic characters (be they Aelf or otherwise), in this article I cover making a High (Aelf) Elf Mage conversion using the Warhammer 40k Eldar Farseer model.
I picked up the beautiful Eldar Farseer model from the Warhammer 40,000 range with a view to what is basically a head/arm swap. The head swap was simple, the arms were far more complex than I had intended upon though. The fantastic Empire Battle Wizard box came in very useful, as well as some Eternal Guard/Wyldwood Ranger Vambraces.
In this Blogisode we talk about the recent Age of Sigmar GT Heat 3 winning list; used to devastating effect by Nick Thompson. Nick took as far from a ‘Net list’ as you could imagine, so we decided to discuss the build and tactics he used!
Listen to our musings below!
Over the weekend, I watched the Warhammer TV coverage of the Age of Sigmar Grand tournament: Heat 3. This is the first major event we have been able to see the Kharadron Overlords in action and I was interested to see where people went with the army design and it seems one sky port has proven popular – Barak-Zilfin.
The most prolific Kharadron Overlords list at the event were the affectionately named “clown car” lists. Continue Reading “Kharadron Overlords: Barak-Zilfin Tactics”
Sky Wardens and Endrinriggers!
Both Sky Wardens and Endrinriggers are the most versatile units you can take in a Kharadron Overlords army. With a fly movement of 12” these are some of the most manoeuvrable Kharadron Overlords units. They have access to decent range weaponry, such as the deadly Drill Cannons and Aethermatic volley guns. They also have some solid combat potential in the form of Aethermatic Saw blades and Sky Pikes. Thanks to the Hitchers special rule these units take up no space on the Sky Vessels. This makes them very strong for the “clown car” list. (see my article on this here!)

Khorne Conversions and Plastic Scraping!
So I’ve been working on a new army and Khorne conversions for the past few months. I’m not revealing any painted models just yet as I would like to present a finished army this time round. My last “finished” army was my mixed chaos which attended some 15 tournaments whilst almost being finished on and off for a year. By the time it was done, it had been seen and no one was really fussed about seeing it!

Sproket Painting Weekend and Kharadron Overlords
Welcome to the show!
In today’s show we cover Byron, Russ, and Lez’ recent trip to the North West Gaming Centre for a painting lesson from four time Slayer Sword winner David Soper, aka Sproket. We’re also joined by special guest Tom Mawdsley, to chat about building Kharadron Overlords lists!
Two weekends back myself, Russ, and Lez attended a masterclass with multiple Slayer Sword winner, and general all round lovely bloke Sproket (David Soper). If you’re not a follower of his blog: Sproket’s Small World you absolutely should be, it’s one of the best on the net, and is a constant source of awe/inspiration for me.. even if I don’t plan on spending 200days painting the same model any time soon :D.
FaceHammer are blogging!
Hello peeps, we’ve started blogging! Hopefully this can become your go-to place for FaceHammer flavoured updates on everything Age Of Sigmar! We’re going to be treating it much like FaceHammer’s Twitter but without a text limit :).
What can you expect to see here?
- What we’re hobbying on currently
- Event photos and feedback
- Tactical insight into games we have played

- Product reviews
- All things Age of Sigmar related!
For my first post I thought I’d pick something very basic: my hobby corner! (It made me tidy as a hidden bonus..). Like a lot of you I have limited space to hobby in, and I often work at my desk too, so I’ve found a nice middle ground.
