Hail, and well met!
As mentioned in the previous instalment, my Stormcast army is themed around a Vanguard Chamber force, with as many Gryph- and winged creatures as possible.
Based on our collective plan to start with a small Skirmish force with a 35 point limit, and based on my theme, I’ve opted for a Knight Venator (who comes with a Star Eagle) and two Aetherwings. That’s means three beaks for a mere 32 renown: a 100% beak-per-base quotient so far!
Now the existing Knight Venator is a perfectly nice miniature…
…but I’ve always been a sucker for converting minis, and in a force as small as this starting ‘army’ I really wanted to go to town on my first hero.
I’m taking inspiration (and body parts) from these two fine ladies.
I like the notion of my first character representing a scouting hero; the vanguard of the Vanguard, if you will.
Inspired by the efforts of the other Aaronoriumites I’ve already converted the majority of my Venator, and with a few more hours greenstuff curing time she’ll even be ready for an undercoat (weather permitting!).
Now I’m a complete novice in terms of AoS, Stormcast and Skirmish in particular, and I have an uneasy feeling that my theme means I’ve put a lot of eggs in one metaphorical basket, so if anyone has any play hints, tips, or tricks to get the most out of such a small force feel free to comment below!
