Age of Sigmar Battle Report Sort of

After months of trailing in the wake of the Beastclaw Raiders our Grots came upon a artefact of Mork (or possibly Gork) pulsating with waaagh energy in form of spores from a big mushroom. The Grot tribe started to congregate around the mushroom and began to construct a crude altar.

A Stormhost shows up on the horizon determined to stop this in order to clean up and secure the area for their Sylvaneth allies while searching for realm gates.

It's not a full battle report but it gives you the gist of what happened.

 Stormcast Eternals.
Gobbos. Sorry for the backlight neither drapes nor blinds where installed.
The battlefield.
Da Boss Birgash in the center with Nigguk close behind. The squigs on the base acts as wound markers for the artefact.
The general and his battle-horn blower.
 The mangler rushes forward but gets shot down before it reaches its mark.
The left flank slowly advances.
A bad moon wreaks havoc. Or makes decent damage at least.
Lord-Relictor might need to change some lifestyle choices. After several outstanding running throws he's starting to lag behind.
Battlefield form the other side.
Figflinga is starting to get pretty beaten up after a trumpet blast dislodging a large rock at him, some energy hammers and some other stuff.  Seeing that the Knight-Venator is shooting an arrow straight at him, he decides to jump of his Dragonfate Dais and play dead the rest of the encounter.

The Grot right flank is running back to defend the artefact and avoid a charge from the onsetting Liberators.
They didn't quite get out of reach after the Knight-Heraldor spurred the Liberators on to glory. However outnumbered they found out why the Night goblins have gone up in points from the world that use to be..
The Stormhost gets within arms reach of the artefact but it's to late as the mushroom erupts in a explosion of spores. Everything goes dark as the battlefield gets swept by a muddy brown mist from the mushroom. The Stormcasts are forced to fall back coughing until the spores settles.

Warp Lightning Cannon / Plagueclaw Catapult

Forgot to mention in last post that the name generator has now been updated to host Kislevite names of both Gospodar and Ungol varieties. Bretonnia's generator has been updated, the old version is available as an option if someone preferred it. Orc generator is now up and running as well. And the Quotes are up to 674, and still growing.

Front
Got this one in a lot with some other stuff.
Back
But saw many possibilities with the frame and wood pieces.
The goo might also come in handy.
Flipped
The beam used in previous post for the second Pump Wagon
Flipped
And some handy platforms that will become useful.

Pump Wagon nr. 2 Part III

Part I & part II. Continued work on the Pump Wagon.

So found this suitable beam to fit between the horns on the front of the wagon. It's from the Skaven Warp Lightning Cannon / Plagueclaw catapult.
A look in the box next month.
Shorten the beam a bit and had to file the ends to fit in the holes.
Beam in place. I'm starting to realise that I need to paint this in pieces. Especially for the Rhinox.
Added platform. Need to add sort of support against the shield.

100th post special

5 years in... I expected to be posting about Wood Elves and my Warriors of Sigmar: Warriors of Chaos project (predicted Stormcast Eternals ­čś«) But I'm still plodding along with my Gobbos, don't get me wrong I still love my small blue fools but it is probably a never ending project.

So for this special I thought since I usually only post things in progress I'll post pictures of finished stuff.
Sadly no individual pictures all stashed in here:

My carrying case back in Sweden
All magnetized
Archers (New box set not Battle for Skull Pass)
Squigs
Regiment
Top view of the regiment.
Herder
Snotling
In profile
Squig from plastic fanatic box set and a netter.
Squig close up. Smile
Squig Hopper who won me the thumb palette from painting tabled competition.
Sword of maybe maybe not
Sword of mostly falsehoods
Might get some more touching up on the blade.
Some hand weapon boys
Some more finished stuff, group pic. Ignore the unfinished stuff in the back...
Front view
Since you already saw some unfinished stuff in last two pics here are two gong bearers
And a last unfinished treat. This guy in was fist seen in Squig conversion
That post has the most views of all my 100 post beating the second place with almost double amount of views. He wasn't much to look at back then but the expectations sort of put me off working on him. However it's probably just the title that has made the post that popular.
Adding some more plates and pointy bits to the back.
From behind

Texture to plates

Hope you have enjoyed this 100th post special. Please leave a comment, subscribe and share with you friends ;P

Structural Reinforcement

Todays content is greenstuffing and converting on the Pump Wagon.

Been adding greenstuff to make it look like the added bit is hold down by metal straps bolted down to the main floor of the Pump Wagon.
The white bolts/bits are cut from plastic rod. (Mention in end of previous post)
Front view.
ProTip! put the plastic rod in some Blu-Tack when cutting to stop the off cut from flying every where.
Making skids. The main ski is made from old plastic card bent by dipping in almost boiling water. Some scratched (for texture) sprue bits for structure and greenstuff. Tried to tie them in with the rest of the model by adding a axle nut like the once on the front horns.
Same procedure here with making the sprue bits appear bolted down. Except used thin plastic card as metal strap on the ski. No real reason more than experimenting.
Had to use greenstuff for the bit on the sprue though to make it connect to the strap on the ski properly and for simplicity.
Working on a over seized chicken to hang from hooks from the under side of the platform of the "tower". And a bad moon symbol to put on the axle nuts.
