My first Warhammer army

Hey everyone, I wanted to share my excitement about my first Age of Sigmar army – the Kruleboyz!

Why Age of Sigmar

Both Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000 are fantastic tabletop games that offer unique and engaging gameplay experiences. However, there are a two reasons why I choose to play Age of Sigmar over Warhammer 40,000.

  1. Fantasy setting: Age of Sigmar takes place in a fantasy world with rich lore and a diverse range of factions.
  2. Simplicity: Age of Sigmar is generally considered to be a simpler game to learn and play than Warhammer 40,000. While both games have complex rules and mechanics, Age of Sigmar has fewer models and a more streamlined rulebook, which can make it easier to get started.

Painting the models

When I first started painting my models, I knew I wanted to give them a unique twist. That’s when I got the idea to paint them like fel orks with red skin.

I have to say, I’m really happy with how they turned out. The red skin gives my Kruleboyz a menacing and intimidating appearance, perfect for a faction known for their brutal tactics. Plus, it’s always fun to have an army that stands out on the tabletop.

When it came to painting, I made sure to choose a bright and vibrant red paint. I also added in some contrasting symbols and designs to give my models more depth and texture. I’m really proud of how they turned out and can’t wait to get them onto the battlefield.

Overall, I think the Kruleboyz are a great choice for anyone looking for a unique and challenging army to play with in Age of Sigmar. And if you’re looking to make your models stand out, I highly recommend trying out a unique paint scheme like I did.

I decided to use a purple base for my Kruleboyz shields, as it’s a color that complements the red skin of my models nicely. To add a pop of color, I chose a vibrant blue as a second coat over the purple, which created a striking contrast and made the shields really stand out.

Adding highlights with a lighter blue shade really brought out the details and added depth to the overall look of the shields. For the eyes on the shields, I used red with yellow pupils to give them a demonic look that fits well with the Kruleboyz theme.

As for the leather, I decided that my boyz don’t care about fashion and they wear what they have. So, there are three colors of leather: green, purple and brown. And I really think it added more character to my army!

What is next?

I still haven’t been able to play even one game. But I hope that in near future I will be able to bring these boyz on the table!
