“The Realmgate Wars are over.
Elixia is shattered.
The Hammers of Sigmar have abandoned Chamon.
But we remain…We who swore to protect Celemnis in this twisted realm.
For the Maiden!”
– Lord Maulheart, Chamber of the Bloodied Dawn
Early in 2017, I picked up a copy of Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower…and began my relationship with Games Workshop’s Age of Sigmar setting. I was initially put off of Age of Sigmar after the destruction of the beloved Old World, but have became a bigger fan of this new setting than I was of the former one. It seemed some of my enthusiasm splashed onto my son as he got the bug as well and wanted to paint up some Stormcast. A buddy hooked us up on a fantastic deal on an AoS Starter set with the Stormcast side mostly painted. My son was in luck!
I, however, needed to get to work.
I read it once that “Faces and Bases make minis look Aces”. I believe this is certainly true. A decent base can ground the model and give it that finished polish. The eye is naturally drawn to a model’s head and anything off there is the first thing noticed…and it’s easy to go wrong. Luckily for me then, I have a long history of favoring characters with covered faces.
