Well, I suppose it's about time I start my Plog here:

I'm going to keep this organized, so this first post will just be an index and background post


Backstory for the army:
TO BE WRITTEN


CHARACTERS:
TO BE WRITTEN



Also, kudos to anyone who gets the reference for the thread's title 😉

Now the stuff I've been working on:

Some of the old Von Carsteins (and wing dude)

Shordemaire (Prince Vhodrai's Mount) [Creature Caster Zombie dragon if you're interested]:

Blood Knights:

Custom base for Mortarch Mannfred:

(because the attachment point being the spindly tail and the Spirit Hosts terrifies me)

No rules for it in AoS (yet), but every army needs a banner!

Firstly I was all excited to expand the background sections only to cry when they are to be written! 😭

I really cool collection of models. I think some of the older vampire models were still some of the best (although I never quite got on board with baldy Mannfred!), and like the dragon you've found. Will be great to see when you've got them painted up. Nice work on the skellies and varghulf as well

Sorry for the tease, but a good tease is needed 😉

In any case, thanks! Though, I've painted a Vargskyr, not a Varghulf. Close, but not the same. And I only got count Mannfred because I saw that all the Vampire Lords were going LCtB so I was like "yoink" for all of them. Because I always liked all of those models, but wasn't sure about them.

They're also smaller than new models. Or at least Isabela is.

That's a head from Puppetswar, right? I think he's gonna turn out great!
Indeed it is, one of the "Noble Vampire" heads from Puppetswar.

I figured out what to do with the left arm at least:

I'll be having him holding the "Ancient Chalice", which I'll make from the Blood Angels Sanguinary Priest model's goblet:

Additionally, I've done some work on the other vampires from the Crimson Court:

Ennias Curse-born was turned into a Dunmer from The Elder Scrolls (seriously, that was my first thought after seeing him) by doing a simple wing-clipping:

Turned Vellas von Faine into a female Vampire Lord:

And made Prince Duvalle into a vampire lord with an arm swap and changed what he's standing on. I'll likely add some stuff to make his silhouette even more different from the base model:

D'oh, I'm still catching up!

Maybe a daft question...do the models come red now instead of grey? 🤔
Boxed game and/or Easy to Build models tend to be coloured plastic.

In Cursed City the Heroes are this tan-grey plastic, but the baddies (our dudes) are all grey.

The Crimson Court, being an ETB kit and for Underworlds, are in coloured red plastic. It's apparently to be an easy way of "getting into a game" and making it easy whose models are whose

Gosh you're making me want to hunt down another box, the conversion potential for all of them is too good! These are excellent!

And yes Disciple of Nagash a lot of the smaller kits/ETBs etc are colored, so Stormcast are gold plastics, Ultramarines blue, etc
