Lynch has a nice compass. And I like the bad-ass look of Sludga. He looks even badder than his boss Mogrum

Wow... it's been a long time since I added anything to this blog!

It's going to be a massive job and it will take at least a few months, but I've decided to re-base my Pirate Orc army for Age Of Sigmar, starting with The Chimeras:  







I still need to glue on sand and paint the greenstuffed join between the old base top and the new 32mm round base. I have taken the opportunity to add another highlight to their skin as well, as for some reason (that I can't recall) when I painted them I didn't add the Moot Green step at the end.

This all means the army also needs new fluff for the Mortal Realms...

Kapitan Sinbag and The Chimeras
Orruk corsairs from Hysh, the Realm of Light.

The Isla de los Corsarios in Chaman was home to a culture much like Estallia in the World-That-Was. The island had three major cities and was ruled by three feuding noble houses of the Castilians.

The feuds ended hundreds of years ago when the Arabican Empire invaded from Hysh. A long war was fought between the united noble houses and the Arabicans that ended in an uneasy truce, with the Castilian noble houses controlling two of the island’s cities and the Arabican’s controlling the third.

The pinnacle-city of Ras Kebdaha, in a wide bay on the east coast of the island, was re-built by Arabicans in the style of their own cities in Hysh: domed spires and ornate archways, whitewashed walls and gilt-and-turquoise decoration.

When the forces of Chaos defeated and slayed the population, Arabicans and Castilians alike, the island was left empty and in ruins for centuries. The forces of Destruction eventually followed the Arabicans from Hysh and occupied the island. In the city of Ras Kebdaha, the orruks and ogors took on the habits and customs of the Arabicans in a mockery of their sophisticated civilisation. In Port d’Addia and Port Mahóne they adopted the Castilian style.

Kaptain Sinbag and the Chimeras are typical of the Arabican-styled orruks that set sail from Ras Kebdaha. They wear brightly coloured (if filthy) robes, sashes, fez and turbans.The all carry an array of wickedly curved scimitars and daggers, and most are festooned with baroquely decorated flintlock pistols. They are often accompanied on their adventures through the Mortal Realms by a noisy gaggle of grots, a dim-witted River Troll (in a Fez) and a sun-burned Ogor Maneater. They are occasionally joined by an ancient sorcerer - a Djinn Binder of dubious reputation.

It has indeed!

While I am not interested in the new fluff, seeing your wonderful models again is an inspiration as always.

That makes two. I had forgotten about Sinbag & Associates. They really are among the FINEST of your creations. It's WONDERFUL to see them again. OUTSTANDING WORK!  thumbsup

I have finished re-basing and adding the extra skin highlight to some more Orc Corsairs and a Troll.

Yes, the Troll has a Fez. Fezs are cool.

Razkhadim the Djinn Binder summons Irthaluk The Traveller, an untrustworthy air Djinn, to serve ‪‎The Chimeras‬.

(I'm using the Warscrolls for a Chaos Sorcerer Lord and a summoned Herald of Tzeentch.)



















The Chimera's leaders watch the binding...



In the dark of the moonless night the Chimeras crowded round Razkhadhim and the large brass bottle as the Djinn Binder carefully removed the wax seal while reciting the ancient words of control. They nodded to each other in silent approval; they always enjoyed a good ritual. As the seal crumbled and fell to the sand the Orc Corsairs shuffled a few steps back.

The Djinn flowed out of the brass bottle like smoke, laughing like thunder. His pale turquoise skin transformed from moment to moment: Now almost transparent, now as solid as stone. From the waist down he faded into billowing sand coloured clouds. He rolled and span as he revelled in his new-found freedom, stretching his arms and shouting. The whirling of the Djinn stirred up the wind and the sand, whipping the long robes of the gathered group.

After a few minutes he seemed to notice Razkhadhim and the cowering Orc Corsairs for the first time. For a tiny fraction of a second his face fell, his expression changed to fear, panic and loathing. But the fleeting moment passed and his mastered his emotions. He slowly folded his arms with a disdainful look of pride and arrogance.

"What is your wish, my master?" he said in a booming voice loaded with scornful contempt.

Thanks gents!!



I have completed re-basing next unit of the Ironfang Pirate Fleet and I'm really pleased with how they look on 50mm round bases!

This distinctly fishy unit of Sea Trolls (using the River Troll rules) will be expanded later but I intend to field them this week in a game with Godfather Viktor, in our Duskhaven campaign.

I completely agree - I hadn't realised just how much I dislike square bases until I started to re-base my Pirate Orcs!

Yes, but a long time ago, and not all at once!
