So I'm nearly done with my Age of Sigmar one shot but I got to thinking about the Old World. 
Would anyone still be interested in stories from the Old World? It's clear Games-Workshop has no intention to continue printing fiction set in the days before the End Times. 
I've never written anything in the Old World but I have a few ideas floating around. Particularly about pirates of the old as I don't feel it was an area given the attention it deserved. Pirates were certainly features and mention but aside from Dreadfleet I can't think of any examples where they were the sole focus. 
I have some ideas for one of those swashbuckling adventures, full of bar fights and blazing cannons. 
All I want to know are people still interested or has the time passed?
  • Mood: Neutral
  • Listening to: Alot of metal.
  • Reading: Alot... just alot of books.
  • Playing: Too many to list.
  • Eating: Bacon, always bacon... or steak.
  • Drinking: Relentless or vodka. Sometimes both.
So since I started my Stormcast army painted up as Hallowed Knights I felt in appropriate to write a "one shot" of them in battle. In the opening stages of the Age of Sigmar the Hallowed Knights are mainly set loose in the realm of life which I believe is overrun by Nurgle. So this is where my story is set. I plan on buying the Age of Sigmar book tomorrow so I will do some reading and go from there. I have the opening of the story complete. Perhaps if it is well received I'll continue with more. I will also put up some pics of the finished warriors themselves.

... is glorious. Truly the best bunch of mini's GW has ever supplied as part of a start kit and that's saying something coming from me since I absolutely adored the Dwarfs in the Hobbit set. Vandus Hammerhand is an amazing figure and having briefly played the game in store, ridiculous on the battlefield. I genuinely can't wait to see what they release next. Though my heart has always belonged tot he Dawi of WHFB I think my main AoS army will be Stormcast. It's a fun game and the background is just as grim as before, if not more so in some cases. 
Expect some pics up soon of my Hallowed Knights and Goretide warriors.

Almost certainly not going to paint my Stormcast Eternals gold. I feel everyone will be doing that. However it does appear Games-workshop have supplied transfer sheets with more than one force. I've no idea what the individual sections of the Stormcast army are called. They question is, which ones do I choose?

It's incredible. I have no other words. The miniatures are beautiful, the rules are simple and FREE for the armies you may already have. All mini's are usable old or new. Even the new background sounds amazing. I cannot wait to get my hands on the boxset.

I am, well I'm known here as Lukas the Trickster. I'm pretty much your average idiot with a little too much spare time. I read, I write, I watch movies, play video games and I paint Warhammer. There really isn't a lot I can tell you about myself here to be honest.

I'm here to admire art in any form, painting, writing, drawing or photography. I'm here to talk to other artists, share ideas and opinions.
I'm here to post my own art, literature and model painting.
I'm not here to argue and insult.
I do not think I'm talented and struggle to see the good in what I do, I'm usually only proud of something for the time it takes to post it online.
Never the less, I will continue to post work as long as I keep churning it out.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, view my page and my work. You're all legends.
