Much like the minotaur, I picked up this guy as a cool big model. I don’t have much intention of playing any Warcry, but giant death machines are always fun.
This Battlesmith is the last of my backlogged painted Fyreslayers. I shook things up a bit by making his mohawk the red I use as an accent elsewhere, and a silver helm.
The Age of Sigmar escalation league I was participating in collapsed, so this is the last of the Sigmar models I’ve painted. I do have enough on sprue to get to a full (if suboptimal) 2000 points. I hope to return to finish it off sometime.
I don’t love the rules for the Runemaster, but I do dig the model. Plus, there are few enough non-character options for the Fyreslayers that I feel I need to load up on the characters.
The Runemaster gets the same slate chip base treatment of the other characters. It makes him pretty tall, but it helps him to stand out from the other infantry.
His hair also helps. The Runemaster felt like an elder, so he gets the obvious white hair to match.
If there’s one thing any Age of Sigmar army needs, it’s more Battleline troops. For the second unit of Vulkites I went with the other main weapon choice, warpicks and shields.
The karl’s hair got a white fringe to help him stand out from his battle brothers.
Otherwise these models got the same treatment as the rest of my Fyreslayers. The weapons should be enough to distinguish them from the other units.
At some point I’ll need to add more models to the unit. Vulkites really want to be mobbed up for the improved save. But for now, ten will have to do.
