It has been awhile, but the current Painting Master, Aaron, hits us with his first Blog post - Matt
I will start at the only place I can... with an apology to Paul, Matt and Chris for my shortcomings with this tale so far.
I fell behind very early on with this tale and due to my reluctance to compromise on quality I have been falling further every month. The others have been pressing me to share with you all what I have achieved so far and I am at a point where I know the quality is not going to be what I had hoped unless I let the others down with the tale.
My own shame at myself for letting the others down has really put a negative spin on the whole hobby for me for a few weeks now, but after attending Tomorrow Burns and seeing the wealth of lovely armies there, my hobby big has returned and I’m excited to get some paint on some models!
The army I have chosen to run for this second edition of From Ember to Inferno is Disciples of Tzeentch.
It will be a new and (hopefully) improved version of my previous Tzeentch army, which I sold a few years back.
I want the army to have a strong theme, inspired by the idiom “Dark Wings, Dark Words” which is used in the A Song of Ice and Fire series with regards to messenger ravens and the dark tidings they are often associated with.
This has a cool overlap with Tzeentch which I am hoping to reinforce as I go, as you can see here with my freehand banner.
In future months I will be adding more a raven themed units and iconography including more freehand banners, the Corvus Cabal, and of course.. a Lord of Change.
The overall colour scheme I hope to achieve will be dark and mysterious but with pale flesh tones and ethereal basing to offset it. This is inspired by artwork from Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.
I apologise to those of you following the tale for my lack of hobby output and I want to reassure you guys and the other tale participants that I’ll be making efforts to catch up as soon as I can.
See you again soon!
